I truly love this restaurant! I could have gone anywhere for my birthday but chose to go to Beatrix River North. I’ve been going there since it opened and seldom have I been anything but pleased. When they do make a mistake, they own up to it and make it up to the diner.

For example, my companion ordered fish and I ordered the pot roast fillet mignon. My order must’ve sat in a window for a while while her fish was being prepared because my entire meal was only lukewarm. I sent it back thinking they would just do a quick rewarm of the potatoes and steak. They brought it back piping hot and comped my entrée! I was very surprised and pleased. Happy birthday to me!

The rest of our meal was stupendous. Our waiter recommended the caramel pie, something I ordinarily would not have ordered. He mentioned that it won awards, so as a pastry chef, I had to try it. He was right! Delicious!

I highly recommend this restaurant… Something for everyone and way above average for sure!! Thx, Lettuce!!

I love Beatrix’s food and overall vibe, but for whatever reason my service was absolutely brutal during this weekday lunch rush. Not only did the service take an exceptionally long time but the server was super dry and unfriendly.

good food, and they were very well aware and accommodating of me being a celiac and following a gluten free diet. Definitely a good spot to go with friends, a date or with family.

We had a (very) small problem with one of the dishes we were served. I think this is the true test of most restaurants, because inevitably a mistake will happen. They understood the concern, talked with us about it, and more than made up for it. As it turned out we ended up with a dessert we would not have normally ordered which was outstanding.

Beatrix is not a bad restaurant, just not a great one. The concept of health combined with tasty food just doesn’t really come together in this case. If you are looking for a casual meal at a central location this may be your spot. As long as you manage your expectations the experience may suit your needs.

Our server was friendly, professional, took time to visit with us, and checked-in from time to time. The egg white omelette was sooo good. We are in Chicago for four days and will be having breakfast at Beatrix twice!

We had a great experience however my 17 year old daughter and her three friends had a seperate table and the waiter never asked what they wanted to drink never asked how they liked their meat cooked and never checked on them after their food was delivered. I guess he was not smart enough to know they eat out at nice restaurants all the time and are great tippers when the service is good. Our service was mediocre at best. Good thing the food was good

Totally awesome as finally healthy options and good food! Great cocktails....our server in the bar area was so so slow which was so maddening when you want your cocktail!! We could see our drinks on bar for 10 minutes and we finally had to get up and get our own......Servers need to come and greet you also and not wait 15 minutes after sitting down.

Fabulous! The vegetarian ceviche was delicious as was the burrata. The burger, chicken Bebe and Ravioli all exceeded expectations. The best was the cookies for desert. We asked the waitress to warm them up and they were spectacular. I would go back for warm cookies and a scoop of ice cream everyday! They are not to be missed.

We were visiting Chicago for a week. Waiter in SF told us about Beatrix (River North) as did the Hotel Monaco in Chicago. We had breakfast which was yummy, so we decided to go back for dinner with our son and his friends a few days later. We ordered these delicious meatballs to start and split a salad. The special that evening was Thai "fish and chips". The fish was delicate, moist and just the right amount of crispy served with sweet potatoes. The vibe was upbeat and the ambiance open and airy. There are a number of Beatrix locations which means you have even more opportunity to experience this great place to eat! Enjoy!
