We truly enjoyed our visit. The food was excellent, the service was great, and the restaurant is modern while giving homage to the old Beauty shop at the same time.

Would definitely eat there many times over.

Looked packed but they got
Looked packed but they got us seat right away. We were a little cramped sitting close to other couples but I can't complain give how fast they seated us. Employees were all friendly and welcoming. Beautini (their martini) was missing something it seemed like, so I won't recommend that, but if you go you must try the cake! Plan ahead so you're not full by cake time. The cake and other desserts are written on the large mirror separating the bar/table areas and most people miss it.

Very nice restaurant in a trendy area. Staff very nice and attentive but it seemed to take a very long time to get our food and some was cold when arrived. Waitress quickly took care of and gave us a dessert! Would definitely try again.

It was a wonderful birthday!
It was a wonderful birthday! Four of us and we all got different dishes and each enjoyed their choice very much. Drinks were excellent. Service was outstanding. Karen Carrier was fabulous. It was busy but we felt like we were important and served as such! We have been before and will always make sure we go back. Thank You to the Beauty Shop for a wonderful evening.

Great food in a vintage atmosphere
I hadn't been to the Beauty Shop in several years, and I was very pleasantly surprised. The selection was great and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. We will definitely be back soon!

Great food, fun place
Food was unique and excellent. Interesting menu. Portions not huge but if you order an appetizer (we had three & all were great), soup or salad plus entrée, you'll have room for desert. The cashew encrusted grouper was amazing; another person had the pork chop w/peaches & loved it. Waiter was enthusiastic and well versed on the menu. Friendly & attentive. Mixed drinks were good as they should be. This is one of our favorite Memphis restaurants. It can get busy and noisy, so going mid-week and a little early helps.

24th Anniversary Dinner
We celebrated our 24th late because we knew we would be visiting Memphis soon and wanted more of an adventure. A friend recommended The Beauty Shop and we were very pleased. The history of the place as a beauty shop that Priscilla Presley frequented, the decor that included the old beauty shop elements, and the arty/alternative/fun vibe of the Cooper-Young neighborhood made it fun from the start. We didn't really need a reservation, because the place was practically abandoned on a Thursday night, so that was a little disturbing. Staff were friendly and fun as well and the menu was interesting with some creative dishes (grilled romaine salad was new to me and I liked it a lot). The food was very good. A wonderful experience!

Uses local food producers
Uses local food producers and fresh seafood. Changes menu specials to meet latest freshest foods available. Herbs and spicing always well blended. Haven't been disappointed with anything we've ever ordered. Not only supports organic and fresh produce providers, but neighborhood and special events. Fabulous staff... interactive if desired, quiet if needed. Booths or tables...
'always a memory.

Very cool vintage ambiance
Been for both brunch and lunch and it is consistently good. Took my parents here and they enjoyed it very much. The decor is very cool.

Good locally sourced food.
Loved the theme and the reuse of the original beauty shop. The waiter was very knowledgable and spot on in his recommendations. We had the local grass fed ribeye and the barramundi. Both were prepared perfectly and paired with lovely sides. The green beans were also perfect. Their take on bruschetta was pretty amazing. Local bakery bread with goat cheese and arugula that had the perfect amount of vinegrette and blackberries and cashews. The grilled romaine salad was good with a bit of heat from the dressing. The desserts were also great. The crepe was good as was the chocolate cake. Their selection was written on the mirrors and was vast. The neighborhood is a gem in Memphis.

Girls night out!
This place is great for girls who want to meet for gelato. They have so many different ones. The food portions are small, so most men probably would leave wanting more. Perfect for a girls night out!

Love Love LOVE!!
Fantastic place for a night out! Can't wait to go back

Once again, a great meal
Our meal is always wonderful at the beauty shop. Make sure to give the pork carnitas a try. The flavor is fantastic. Their cocktails are also outstanding with fresh ingredients.

The food is absolutely perfect! Everything is seasoned and cooked to perfection!

Loved the food. Everything was wonderful and the ambience was fabulous. Only thing I would have changed was the portions could have been larger. Also try the Bloody Mary and red velvet cake. They were grand.

My feet ten feet off of Cooper!
We were in Memphis for the first time (but not the last). We found the Open Table reviews for The Beauty Shop and decided to give it a shot. We were not disappointed. Being a couple of "Baby Boomer Foodies" we both remember actual beauty shops. Our cab driver filled us in on the Cooper-Young area of Memphis. Bohemian area with great restaurants. Upon arrival we immediately felt comfortable and were greeted warmly. Our waiter was "A Mississippi Boy" and he sure his way around food and wine. Man, he was all over that restaurant! He guided along with great recommendations that were right on the mark. We both had fish and both dishes were outstanding. His wine recommendations were right on the mark. An excellent dining experience for us both.

Everything we ordered was wonderful! The menu was great!! Made me want to order everything! Was not dissapointed in anything.

Fantastic Find in Memphis!
We ate at The Beauty Shop on the last morning of our Elvis Pilgrimage! It was absolutely delightful! Very retro but modern at the same time, we enjoyed the surroundings from the moment we entered the door - well, really from the moment we entered the quaint neighborhood where the restaurant is located. The service was very good and the food was great with very ample portions. We will visit again - this time for dinner perhaps - when we return to Memphis!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
From start to finish, everything was simply delicious. We started with the watermelon and wings, which provides a perfect pairing of savory with a slight kick and sweet. We had the filet wrapped in bacon with truffle fries and two of the fish dishes (sea bass and halibut). They were all perfectly prepared. We also had a grilled peach and arugula salad with sides of Mexican style corn on the cob. Amazing. The Beauty Shop staff really cares about every item leaving the kitchen.
We had a great waitress--knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. And the decor is a real kick too.

First of all booking on line was one of the best ever options for a restaurant to have. Very simple and convenient. It made our dining experience better because we did not have to wait forever to get a table as some restaurants that are similar to the Beauty Shop make you do because of the first come, first serve, no reservations code. So great idea for reservation booking!
Secondly, this was a great day out for the three of us. We needed it and the atmosphere was perfect. I think the building structure added to the level of chatter from folks being louder than it normally would be in most places but it added to the excitement of trying a new place. Our food was delicious and served in a timely manner. We had a great girls morning out!

Beauty Shop has an excellent brunch menu. You can add a side or make a meal of the side dishes. Service is good and bloody marys are excellent!
