The food wasn’t as good as it usually is which was disappointing. The seating was awful.

Hostess did a horrible job of seating my party, especially after making us wait 15 minutes past our designated reservation time.

Besides from the hostess, our waiter did a great job of taking our order. And the delicious food came out at a terrific pace.

I hope to come back to Beatrix for another meal, and expect my experience to be slightly better.

I loved my risotto, but my sister, who is allergic to onions, was unable to really enjoy her meal as much, as they were unable to offer ANY of their dishes without onions in either the main protein or the sauce. So she had a plain lightly breaded & sauteed chicken breast with asparagus on top & a wedge of lemon. Plus there was no discount for the lack of sauce. I was disappointed as I had selected the restaurant & really wanted her to enjoy her meal. Having said that, the service was great & the cocktail & wine were wonderful. Please think about offering flavorful entrees which don't rely on onions as the main source of flavor.

Incredible food—I had the quinoa cakes with poached eggs. It was a very unique dish and the flavors went together very well. Great service.

Good but the food wasn’t really worth what we paid. Not a bad experience, just probably will try somewhere new next time.

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

The swordfish was terrific. The salad was delicious and large, and good cauliflower side too. Wish we had saved room for dessert!

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.
