A word from The Beatrice Inn

The Beatrice Inn is the latest restaurant from Vanity Fair Editor-in-Chief Graydon Carter and Executive Chef Angie Mar (previously of The Spotted Pig and Reynard). New York Magazine's Adam Platt raves, the Beatrice Inn is in that "rarely achieved sweet spot for a scene restaurant, where the quality of your dinner matches (or transcends) the quality of the scene."

Diner Reviews
  • "LOVED our meal at the Beatrice inn. Food was fantastic, loved the ambience, and our waitress was superb. I don't know why people have rated this restaurant poorly-- I'm upset that I listened to reviews and avoided this place for the time that I did. It's so amazing and a real neighborhood gem."

  • "It's a perfect spot for a small group. We were 2 mothers with our 22 year old daughters. We enjoyed a drink at the bar. The bartender was friendly in a very sophisticated way. The dining room is great looking and feels like old New York. You can hear yourselves talk. The peas and burrata salad we started with (2 to split) is one of the yummiest things I've had in a while. Dinners were delicious as well. When my daughter's friend and her date stopped by- it wasn't an issue. Chairs were pulled up, drinks were bought, laughs were had and we all left saying we'd be back again."

  • "Get the halibut. The most amazing dish ive had EVER! My friend got the dry aged burger she said it was perfect, never had anything like it. Their oysters were really nice. I dont usually eat oysters but i ended up eating six. They were very yummy. I love that the chef came out to the dining room to check everything out. Alot of attention to detail. Drinks were okay. Not wow like the food. Ive already made reservations for next week with my husband."

  • "Really enjoyed the food and the service was great, my only gripe is the overpriced wine list, cheaper wines are priced at $60 and are in no way worth the cost. Order the food and stick to beer."

  • "Honestly - everyone that works there comes across miserable and lost. Food is average. Way too loud. Monkey Bar is 20x better."

  • "The Fried Chicken Dinner for two was the best fried chicken I've had in years. The presentation was also amazing with a butcher block as the serving tray! The potatoes with olive oil and garlic matched the juicy, flavorful seasoning of the chicken perfectly. The figs were also an excellent addition. Savory and sweet. The perfect combination. This meal brought back a flood of childhood memories, of summer cookouts with my father. My dining companions experienced foodie bliss and we were thoroughly stuffed and content. Chef also made sure to make a vegan entree extra special, which was very much appreciated! The wait staff were attentive and the ambiance was intimate and cozy, especially after the torrential rain storm during the evening."

  • "The food was absolutely outstanding. We were a group of 4 and tried most of the menu (over ate). One dish was better than the next. Standouts: crostini with goat cheese & cherries; crostini with buratta; octopus; lamb shank was out of this world The service was great, especially the sommelier - very helpful. "

  • "A walk in was seated immediately when checking in with the hostess before us. We were not seated until after 45 min of our reservation time. Once we were finally seated, it took the staff 20 minutes to take our order, then another 20 to receive our first salad and appetizer, then another 30 min for our entree. No one asked if any of our dishes were good. Dishes were no announced at our tabled. Steak was salty and over cooked. Service was not friendly nor did they feel the need for customer service. The fastest service we received was when we paid the bill and they came by to pick up the check immediately and our plates. I wish they could of displayed that urgency to our entire experience. Overall attitude of staff - they do not care."

  • "We had 8pm reservations, but were not sat until 845pm. Reason we were given that we could not be seated at the time of our reservation was because "the kitchen needed a break." After sitting at 845pm, we were given water perhaps by 910pm! Followed by salads at 950pm. I was so dehydrated and hungry that I literally became lightheaded and 911 had to be called. Only then did the restaurant step up with the customer service and said that our meal was on them. In the end they did the right thing, but the entire dining experience was disappointing and not worth the money. I rather go to a chain restaurant before coming back here."

  • "The noise level ruined our evening. We had to shout and even that couldn't be heard. They need to work on the acoustics of the upper dining room. "

  • "I had been away from the city for almost 4 years, and I remembered The Beatrice as a hot spot for drinks and occasionally dinner so I decided to see how it was still doing and it is better than ever. The food is outstanding, wine is impeccable (and the sommelier is extremely helpful), ambiance is the best - especially in the back room, and service is excellent. The friends I went with had not been before and I am certain that we will all be going back again soon - the selection on the menu alone was enough to entice everyone back for multiple visits just to taste all of the delicious foods."

  • "Great village classic with good food & trendy vibe! Celebrity sightings as well. Thought the dessert portions were small."

  • "the only regret is that fries did not meet my expectations for the price !! - Wine & burgers were out of this world, you should check them out. "

  • "The service was good. The wines were ok. The burger amazing and the sea bass was average. The Rabbit rilettes were really unique. Super crowded and noisy. Probably would go again for bar scene alone"

  • "The food was fantastic, however when we arrived, the staff informed us we had to leave at 8pm in order to serve the next party, theyshould have Done at time of reservation. And Waiter Josh dus not Say thanks Or goodbye upon departure! Regards Anne Twaalfhoven "

  • "We had the lamb and the chicken and both were delicious! We also had two sides: the carrots and the truffle fries. The fries were absolutely delicious, but the carrots weren't very well cooked. Overall though, we had a lovely time. The service was impeccable and the staff was very friendly. I would recommend this restaurant as a hot spot for great food!"

  • "We ate at the Beatrice on Friday night and it was a great experience. I've seen the criticisms about long waits and poor service and did not have any of those problems at a 7 pm seating. The waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The sommelier cked in with us but did not hover. Water glasses were always refilled. The room and music are very cool but not too loud, and, most importantly, the food was great. My wife had the seabass and I a lambshank, and both were perfect with some great truffle French fries and Brussels sprouts. Finished with best piece of cheesecake we've ever had. When we left the bar and restaurant were packed and we received a big thank you from the host/hostess for coming in. We'll be back with friends."

  • "we waited 20 minutes to be seated. host gave us two glasses of the wine on the house because we were waiting, and the table we eventually got was terrific. then, we ordered. and waited 45 minutes for the food. and the waiter never once came by or was around where we could get him. he would jet by us on his way to other tables, many of which were served well before us--even though we were seated earlier. one of our entrees was the risotto, which probably takes longer, but 45 minutes? ridiculous. will not go back."

  • "Had not planned to be in the Village for dinner. . .Luckily for us, The Beatrice had an open reservation. We were very surprised to find this gem. . .Wonderful food and great service! Only complaint is that it is very tight as the tables for two along the wall are only a couple of inches apart. However, the food, cool atmosphere, and service help you to look beyond being a part of the next tables conversation."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "It took 20 min to be seated, 30 min for them to take our order and another hour for food to come. We were there from 8-11pm with a group of four. Our food finally began to arrive near 9:45pm and there was no bread or anything offered in between. The food was great, perfect really, but coupled with bad service, lack of consciousness toward our hunger and the inability to coordinate service between the waitstaff was unfortunate. Otherwise Beatrice Inn would have be a 5 star experience all around. Hopefully it was just an off day for them and the service is not always this poor. "

  • "Great food , great atmosphere, great martini! I have been there before but not recently. Upon entering I remembered that feeling of old New York . Great old jazz was playing on the sound system and a very metropolitan crowd was hanging at the bar. The food was great, though my husband was not a fan of the more expensive aged burger and had wished he had opted for the less expensive one which had not been aged. The staff was wonderful and our overall experience was a 10. I highly reccomend it!"

  • "We had an 830 reservation for 4. They promptly sat us at 10 at 3 person table. The service went downhill from there. If you want to be ignored and treated like a nobody, this is the place."

  • "I had an awesome time at the Beatrice Inn. I dined with 5 of my friends, and the next day they were all raving about how great everything was. From the food to the decor, everything was perfect. The cocktails are ridiculously good with all the best ingredients, bartenders all knowledgeable and ready to assist if you need a recommendation. Personally I would try the Swift and Co, if you like chartreuse, its a delightful cocktail. Lastly, the food was nothing short of exceptional. The chef outdid herself. From the wonderful appetizers, ( a must is their steak tartare, and gorgeous apple kale salad) to their one of a kind burger, you won't leave the Beatrice Inn anything less then amazed."

  • "Fabulous food, sommelier made good recommendation and did not try to get us to upgrade from our price range, waiter very friendly exactly what we expected- highly recommend"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I dined with a group of friends for a get together and we were NOT disappointed! The specialty cocktail list is impressive, as is the preparation! The individual wine glasses are pricy (and the bartender was conscientious enough to note this), but worth it for a special nite out. I had an amazing apple & fennel soup & the sea scallops were cooked to perfection. We shared sides of the polenta (which melted in our mouths) & the brussel sprouts which were prepared with a hint of crispness. We had to share a dessert naturally & the creme brule was to die for!!! I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to enjoy a meal with friends that they can savor and not feel rushed. The price was well worth it and we will definitely be back!"

  • "How could a beautiful space, with a gifted chef, and warm service go wrong? The answers are the space is overcrowded, and therefore far too noisy, the food is overpriced for what it is, and, most of all, the menu is extremely limited. Because of the former I'd be happy to go back, but because of the latter, not for a while."

  • "The Beatrice Inn is fabulous - great location, great food, great ambience. The only thing that was off was the service. They kept refiling tap water to those who requested sparkling and every time they brought out a course, they gave it to the wrong person."

  • "Food at Beatrice is a hit or miss situation. Some dishes -- such as the side dishes were wonderful, others could stand improvement. The atmosphere however is terrific. Just don't go there if you are expecting a very good meal, however it is serviceable."
