    Beatrix is a great place to meet up with friends. Our server was really wonderful. The food is always great. The restaurant was very full, which is good for business, but it was hard for some of our party to hear each other.

    Loved the menu options. Drinks were def not generous pours. Super chincy. The mixed drink did not cover the ice and the wine pour was disappointing. The food was good. Service was fine.

    Went Mother’s Day. Food was cold. Ordered a bottle of wine for the table and was brought a glass as server put in order wrong. Then instead of bringing the wine back and bringing the bottle there was no sign of server for another 10mins to confirm again a bottle was ordered and for 15 minutes for the bottle of wine. Food then came at same time and was cold. Server never checked in again after that. Very poor experience, seems to be lacking staff and also staff there are untrained or are unwilling to be apologetic and to try resolve messups.

    Much improved since previous visits! Steaks were cooked perfectly, lemon pancakes were soufflé-like, and the enchiladas were nicely sauced and spiced. We had to wait a little long for first interaction with our server, but he was very attentive from that point on.

    Beatrix can normally be reliable dining choice. It’s not gourmet food, but honest comfort food that is relatively healthy. Not this past Tuesday night. Although it wasn’t busy, the Brussels sprouts we ordered spent too much time in the frier and were burnt. The pistachio-crusted whitefish was too salty to consume. Not on par for the Beatrix we know and mostly love.

    I’ve been to Beatrix River North several times. The food is usually good. Their menu hasn’t changed much over time. When I went yesterday, I had really poor service. The server was rather rude, and everything has to be requested rather than offered, e.g. sweetener for my tea which I requested and never received and had to walk over to the bar to ask for some, refill of coffee which was not offered but had to be requested, and the hovering near the end of the meal to seemingly push us to leave when we went around 2pm on a Sunday when the weather was nice and the restaurant not even close to full. The eggs your way looked like they had been sitting scrambled for some time rather than freshly prepared, the hash browns in a square were cold, and the toast was served dry without butter or jam, both of which had to be requested and when they arrived the toast was no longer warm. The bakery had no scones either. All in all, a disappointing visit to this Chicago mainstay.

    Our server, Rem was amazing, but the expectation of the food and what we received was a little bit disappointing. The one on Trey that was on a bed of chips ended up being soaked, so the chips were soggy, which is not very appetizing. Will be willing to try it again, but it’s gonna be a quick minute..

    The food here never disappoints! It’s my go-to place for a nice brunch, and I almost always get the oven-baked French toast and bacon. They’re pretty efficient about seating everyone even when it gets busy and it’s always worth the wait. I will say that the service is consistently on the inattentive side, but it’s nothing major. Would recommend!
