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."

    The noise level in the dining room is off the charts. We also had a late reservation and the dining room wasn't even full. Tables are very close together, you're dining with your neighbors. Other than that, great service, good food, good scene. They ran out of Maccallan. Who runs out of scotch ?

    We love this place and always enjoy the food. This was the first time we dined on a weekend. For some reason on this visit, we were rushed by the servers. They tried to take my plate away twice while I was still working on my meal. The service is professional and courteous but maybe on a Saturday night, they want to churn through the tables. We were 2 couples who had not seen each other in ages so we were definitely engaged in lots of conversation while we tried to decide what to eat but we felt rushed and that doesn't feel right.

    Excellent food. Really outstanding. However, when I asked about vegetarian options the waiter pointed to the "Seasonal Vegetable" plate. Sadly that was the only vegetarian option and the specials were both meat and most of the appetizers had meat in them. Otherwise, everything was delicious.

    I've been here a # of times & can always count on a really interesting meal, fabulous service - & just recently took family in from out of town. The waiter was thorough & accommodating but also cracked a couple appropriate jokes, keeping the experience from feeling stuffy. Service here is always well versed & passionate about the food & wine. Crowd is a solid scene & I have now been w slightly larger parties a # of times to receive the same Great experience. I would encourage you take advantage of the specials - while the menu is so solid & burger is always a perfect go to - the lamb shank special was a great addition. This Delivered a great quintessential nyc experience for my out of towners & consistently delightful experience for me.

    With great service, a small but varied menu, in a beautiful old style setting. This is not the Beatrice of 20 years ago, no longer an Italian menu, however, it is still a small intimate (expensive) enjoyable night out.

    We sat in the beautiful back room with the fireplace and old time NY skylight. The food was creative and absolutely delicious. The portions were large and hearty American fare (steak, chops, pork shoulder) all cooked perfectly and presented creatively. We will definitely be back.

    Best brussel sprouts I've ever had. The Halibut is INSANE. The ambience is classic NYC and I can't wait to go there in the Winter when it will feel cozy and warm. Staff is so nice and they are not afraid to show personality and be a bit playful which adds to a fun dining experience.

    Generally I love this place. But for some odd reason, the food was super salty (all of it) on our evening. WOuld only return if I tell them to go super light on the salt. ALso, the tables seemed to be much more pressed together than in the past.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    I haven't had service as bad as I had at the Beatrice Inn in a while. They called me twice the day of my reservation and asked if I would change my time. When we arrived we were seated a table that had a broken leg so we had to prop it up with our hands and hold it the entire time we sat so it wouldn't flip over. We asked to be moved to another table and they finally moved us 45 minutes later. During the entire 45 minutes we waited at our table for our new one, no one took our order. I had to chase down the waiter 3 times. We finally got a free round of drinks after speaking with multiple people. At our new table, the service was still poor. It took almost 1.5 hours to get our entrees. AWFUL experience.

    We went with a couple who had not been to the restaurant in many years but had had their first date there. They treated us like royalty. The restaurant is very pretty, wonderful service and fine if not amazing food. It was pretty crowded and noisy but we were there on a Sat night . Recommended for an intimate date or a group. It could work for either which is unusual. Very attractive space

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent dinner at The Beatrice Inn. The host and servers were very accomodating and the food excellent. The space is "a little jewel box" and we the leather banquettes very comfortable. An appetizer containing fried dates was particularly delicious, as was the goat milk cheesecake.

    cozy inviting European-feeling food delicious. Yes, it is high in salt, but spectacular in taste, texture. I was too stuffed to try dessert. Delicious wine. Delicious cocktail. Nice, youthful to mid-aged crowd spirited but not rowdy. Severs were great, they came out The restaurant/discounted/did not charge for various items (I asked, and they intentionally did not charge) presumably to encourage my coming back, but I would have paid full fare and would still have been quite happy.

    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.

    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.

    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.
