Food is innovative and fresh. Service is incredibly perceptive and efficient. Such a cool space with a great Vibe. Hard to do in a hotel setting but they get it right every single time.

We love this place! Went back twice in a weekend because the food was Soooooo good. Definitely the Caesar Salad and Burrata alone are worth the visit! Service was excellent and everything felt very clean and safe and distanced. We will be back

Highly recommend and I’m definitely going back soon. The food and drinks were amazing. Vegetarian and vegan options too! Also very reasonably priced. We had to wait a little to be seated but they were very considerate and sat us in a very nice spot to make up for it.

Ordered steak and eggs - the steak exterior was grey, and the meat quality was lacking. Toast seemed like store-bought bread. Eggs and hash browns were excellent - will just order that next time.

The food was very, very good. We really enjoyed it and we would go back and eat again. Our service was sufficient, but not fantastic. We were 3/4 of the way through our meal before the server checked to see if the food was okay or if we needed anything. That being said, we'd go again.

I loved sitting outside on Clark Street on a beautiful spring day. I enjoyed the spicy chicken sandwich. Service was a bit slow but it was nice to relax outdoors.

I want to start by saying I love Beatrix. I’ve been to almost all the locations, love the food, love the vibe, love the people. But Easter Sunday brunch missed the mark service-wise... big time. After being seated we waited nearly 10 minutes to be acknowledged by staff. Another 10 minutes and our actual waitress finally appeared. By the 30 min mark, we had received waters and 1 cup of coffee for my party of 4. They obviously had not communicated to staff how to handle tables where some did restaurant week and others had not (we were 2:2). When the apps for the restaurant week people came, the main for another person came out. We awkwardly sat for 10 minutes waiting for the final persons dish to arrive. That individual’s meal did not come until we said something as the restaurant week people’s entree came with no indication there was more food coming. It was super disappointing. The food was delicious but my sister had waited to eat her dish until the final person’s entree came (40 min later) and therefore her food was cold. I’m chalking this up to it being Easter and a potentially new waitress. I’ve been to Beatrix busy before but this was notably terrible service and I know they do better!

I have heard nothing but good things about Beatrix however, was really disappointed. We came here for my birthday and we were really excited to try out some cute, swanky drinks. The drinks were good, however a bit too strong and the waiter we had grew very unfriendly once he figured out we had only come for drinks and not to dine. In the two hours that we were there, he probably checked in on us 2 to 3 times, three times max. The setting is adorable and we loved the vibe, however, didn’t love the lack of service.

Food was very disappointing. Ive been to the other Beatrix locations so thought they would be similar.
Both of our dishes were fair at best.
Chicken Bebe and Skirt Steak chimichurri were not good. The Burrata with beets were underdone and no flavor.
