Service was so poor that will not be returning. You can go to other places in river north with similar or better food for the same price and actually get what you order.

I came here for my birthday yesterday and I enjoyed every bit of it. The food was delicious, our server was attentive and I swear he looked like Jesse Williams from that crime tv show haha. My family also enjoyed their food, it was just so flavorful. My brother and I had a great birthday thanks to Beatrix! Unfortunately, we couldn’t order dessert, if there was...because we were full. Also once I entered the establishment, we had to wait a few minutes for our table but then again we were kinda late for our reso so no big deal.

Pics are blurry because it was actually a video. To name a few, steak and eggs, enchiladas, quinoa burger

Not too many varied food choices, no specials even on a Saturday and sparse dessert options. They were out of their dessert choices on a Saturday night and the dessert we did order was plain and tasted processed. So, I will not be recommending Beatrix anytime soon.

This was our third Beatrix location that we have visited. It is in a great location there in river north and worth the stop in. We ordered the avocado eggs Benedict and it was amazing. They have a full coffee bar along with pastries. We recommend the lemon shortbread cookies, hands down the best cookie in the city.

We didn’t get our table until 25 minutes after our reservation time, then had to wait an additional 20 minutes before we got our drinks. Terrible service.

I forget our waitress’s name, however she was friendly and always checking in. She was very personable and she took the time to have a quick conversation with us. Great spot for a first date. 10/10 would recommend! Great job to the whole team!

Loved my visit to Beatrix! The chicken tinga, poblano pepper & egg sandwhich, and burnt honey toast were all amazing. Service was great and our food came out very quickly!

We love Beatrix and went for Valentine’s Day. Everything was great besides our food coming out probably 5 minutes after ordering. Being a busy night we understand the need to have quick turnaround, but also did not love feeling rushed by how quickly our food came out. We are eating about 20 minutes after sitting down for our reservation.

Second time at Beatrix, good drinks, food and service. The place was crowded and tables too close some places right next to reception or refrigerator. The server was good and gave us time to enjoy our dinner as we took our time to order each course.

Delicious from start to finish! For 2020 Restaurant Week, I came with a friend and started with a glass of pinot noir, followed by the black bean cakes (I was surprised they came with mini tortilla chips and guacamole, too -- bonus!). For my entree, I had the salmon, which had a nice teriyaki glaze and came with cooked sweet peas in the pod. For dessert, I had the caramel pie and oh my. That was so sweet and rich, but I could not stop eating it. Delicious! Our waiter was very friendly and came by the table the right amount -- not to often or too little. The booth/table where we sat was very comfortable, especially with the pillows and sofa-type seat. Great time and great food!
