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
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "While its a beautiful place and full of some fun poeple, it really lacks on the food front. For the price you an eat anywhere in NYC and find amazing food."

  • "We took another couple out to celebrate a special occasion. The food and service was good. Very nice waiter. The noise level was fine. Never too noisy and not dead. Very good for a saturday night."

  • "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!"

  • "A fun evening at the Beatrice... The lighting makes everyone look their best, the food is always Satisfying and normally the waitstaff adds to the fun...though tonight was an off night in terms of service."

  • "Perfect place for a romantic dinner - cozy booths and fireplaces and well lit. Unfortunately the food is mediocre and it's not inexpensive. Really should be fixed..."

  • "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."

  • "Made an 8:15pm reservation and waited for about an hour for our table (for two) to become available. Bar was small and packed with people waiting for their reservations. The bartenders were knowledgeable and had a good array of specialty drinks. Bar and dining room had a good vibe to them. Food was OK. Service was slow. I'd recommend trying the place, but would expect to wait for a table and to be there for a few hours for your meal."

  • "hands down, the best thing about the beatrice inn is its aesthetics, from decor to waiters' uniforms. dining there feels like having fallen into a wes anderson film. the space is cozy, being slightly underground and narrow in a good way. service was on-point: attentive and crisp, but not stuffy. the menu is very short, which is better than a long menu if perfectly curated--but disappointing if not, and there were some missteps. the market greens salad, for instance, features delicious greens and an addictive goats' yogurt dressing--but pomegranate seeds are a pedestrian addition that throw it off. the entree scallops are perfectly cooked, but i received only 3 in my portion. that said, i hear that the burgers and the steak are remarkable."

  • "Sat for 10 minutes waiting for a waiter to make first visit to table. Eventually had to find the maître d'. Brussels sprouts were overcooked (dry and crunchy), all the food was incredibly salty. Completely unsatisfactory for a 9:45 reservation, which was seated at 10:15."

  • "Seated an hour after reservation! They gave us a drink but by the time we got food, we were too tipsy and ravenous. Food was good but for some reason entrees were cold. Maybe an off night but gorgeous ambiance."

  • "How does a restaurant running out at 9pm of the only fish dish it has on the menu ? With no other option for the 4 people out of 5 at our table that were looking for fish. We were desperate ! Appetizers, salads had NO TASTE AT ALL. Main courses were served cold and tasteless or very poor taste !! And it was not even packed ! Is it supposed to be a trendy place just because it is owned by a famous magazine editor ?? RESTAURANT ARE MEANT TO SERVE FOOD ! And preferably a decent one. This one is not even decent. IT IS THE POOREST FOOD WE EVER HAD IN OUR LIFE, AND WE WERE 5 OF US TO SHARE THE EXACT SAME OPINION. Never, never again...."

  • "Completely renovated and with a great menu, it's not the Beatrice Inn that Charles Kuralt frequented. The food and ambiance are wonderful. Just be aware that if you make a 7:15 reservation and you're not a somebody, you'll be in the back room. The room itself is pleasant, but somewhat claustrophobic when filled. The service and food are very good. Prices are high."

  • "the menu was very limited; expensive wine list and dinner menu. Crowded and noisy."

  • "Well this old west village establishment is not what it used to be and what it used to be was just a simple little local joint...now it pretends to be something it is not, a fine dining experience."

  • "We had made a reservation three week prior to dinner. WE WAITED FOR TWO HOURS TO BE SEATED. It was not worth it, and I will never go back."

  • "Beatrice is a classic New York restaurant; conceived by the same people (i.e. Vanity Fair's Graydon Carter) as Waverly Inn just a few blocks away, the emphasis is on the elegance of the experience. Excellent, classic cocktails, a great wine list and a well-spoken sommelier who looks like someone from a different era compliment the food, which is very rich, albeit somewhat of a limited and simple menu. Expect to spend $100 per person for dinner including wine and cocktails, a great spot for a date or a group dinner, definitely very impressive."

  • "I went with two girlfriends for a night out . Loved the service , the atmosphere, the food. Best roast chicken I've ever had. Would eat here again in a heartbeat ."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Normally I would not write a review - unfortunately the service at Beatrice leaves much to be desired. The sommelier was not familiar with the wine list and was unable to make a decent recommendation. We repeatedly poured our own wine, were rushed through dinner and the waiter was pretty much hopeless otherwise. Food and ambiance were great - if you go make sure you stay on top of the service."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "The Beatrice Inn serves late, so it's a reliable destination following the theater or a film. There's a good burger, and there's always "someone" dining to add to the classic New York experience."
    Dined on 10/27/2013
  • "Where do I start? The service is mediocre, the food is even more average and the tables are so close together and overpacked that people were knocking stuff over trying to get out of their seats - at their own tables, and the one next to them. Not worth the wait, the hype or anything else. Graydon Carter should be doing better than this. The only plus: great bar scene."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "Atmosphere is great and service is good, however, food is inconsistent. The steak was great but the Beatrice Burger and Orata fish were both poor and not worth finishing."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "What a waste of an ambient space -- the wait staff and wine steward were so unfriendly that they ruin the entire vibe with their negative energy. Please management, if you're reading this -- change your staff!"
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "Considering the price and reputation of the Beatrice Inn, I came away very disappointed. Sat at our table for 15 minutes before anyone even asked us for our wine/drink order. The appetizers were very limited in my opinion, there literally wasn't a single one I wanted to eat, and the waiter seem perturbed I didn't want an app. My wife asked for dressing on the side of her salad, and it came drenched in dressing. Portions are tiny. I had the leg of lamb, which is sliced, not on the bone - it was decent. A little tough. But a VERY small portion. Definitely did not live up to the hype."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "Despite the negative reviews, I wanted to try this place. It turned out to be much nicer than I had anticipated. The service is friendly and smooth. The food is refined and the crowd on the hip side. All in all, I spent a very pleasant evening. What I like most is the cozy atmosphere."

  • "Nice restaurant.However, I tried ordering a crown royal as a cocktail and they replied that they do not carry that selection.Are you serious!I also was going out on a limb asking for a salad.They had no normal salads but if I wanted Beets,then I came to the right place.Good vibe, with a menu adjustment it could be great."
