Our waiter, Doug(?), was wonderful. He was thoughtful, helpful, and added to our dining experience. The food was delicious. The only thing I would have liked was for our drinks (carrot, apple, ginger and powergreens) to have less ice and more actual juice. It was a lovely experience and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Although we ate outside and the heater wasn’t working super well, the food and service were awesome! I had the cavatappi with chicken bolognese which was delicious. Highly recommend!

Aside from not getting sat until 15 minutes after our reservation, we had a great first meal out in 13 months at Beatrix!

Had lovely experience last week when I went for lunch with my son. Went back for dinner Sat night had a different experience. Made a reservation a week in advance for special occasion, marked this on reservation.
Love the food and drinks, have been here many times before this time however got poor seating next to door which was freezing plus I had a young 5 year old child with . We had four in our party many 4 tops available but the host refused to give me one claiming there were for bigger party. Literally the whole time we dined nobody took these tables. Hugely disappointed in this. We were dressed appropriately and had money to spend and traveled from Northbrook but unfortunately I guess the male host thought otherwise.

Food was good but our server was even better! He was attentive, had a great sense of humor, gave great suggestions, and even dropped off a cookie for my friend’s birthday. We enjoyed the cauliflower, burrata, and dumplings. Cocktails were amazing too!
