Loved the Cesar salad and the poke bowl was yummy
We got there early for our reservation- hostess was unnecessarily rude about it. Set a negative tone for our entire experience.
Great atmosphere! Went In mid September 2021. Consider the patio as the street has been blocked off for more outdoor dining. Definitely recommend reservations. The only slight downside is it was decently busy and the coffee bar line was wrapped around close to our table. We would go back!
The food was amazing! And our waiter was fabulous!! Definitely going there again
Halibut tacos were not blackened and weren’t that great for the price. I ordered a side of fries which were good. Super cool place, just maybe got a little unlucky with my order. I’d give them another try.
Lovely outdoor area (though the abundance of small birds wasn’t pleasant while eating - not sure what they could do to alleviate the problem though). Friendly lemon pancakes were good but didn’t care for the runny eggs and overly salty (couldn’t eat) hash browns. Coffee was fine.
Excellent food, the service was not to mess great location
My reservation for outside was not honored (we were offered inside); after several minutes consult they found a table outside (not hard - plenty open). We then waited 10 minutes before a server gave us water, greeted us, or started to wait on us. It was over an hour before we received our simple dinners (a burger, and a veggie dish). We were largely ignored the whole time by a rude server - no attempt by her to be pleasant to us. I would never recommend this site of Beatrix and it hurts the company's overall good ratings.
People love this place so I thought we’d give it a try for our date day in the city. I had a reservation but we were told we needed to wait 20 minutes despite there being 8 open tables outside. We were finally sat at a table that had been set and ready the entire time we waited. Our drinks took another 20+ minutes. My husband was brought the wrong beer. The food was mediocre. There was nothing special about it. I could have gotten the same brunch anywhere.
Good brunch and service, only disappointment was that they did NOT do brunch Friday after 11am although their menu online said it ran until 3pm.
The service was not very attentive, even though the restaurant was not crowded.
great healthy food
The service was so terrible. From waiting 10 minutes for a waiter to come, then they were not helpful and then my eggs came raw.
Nice, quiet restaurant. Love the short ribs.
By far one of the best breakfasts I have had. Pure. Bacon was amazing…perfectly cooked with great flavor and seasoning. OJ was heavenly fresh and full of flavor. Coffee was hot and delicious. Eggs were cooked as they should be! Didn’t leave feeling like I ate at a greasy spoon!
Service was great. Food was excellent.
Lemon pancakes are amazing and service was friendly and attentive.
The food was good. I got the lemons pancakes but had to send them back because there were little bugs all over the plate….I think from the blackberries? And when I got the new plate there were still the little bugs…I didn’t send it back again so I wouldn’t be a bother and I was hungry. So I just steered clear of the blackberries. Also paid $9 for a mimosa which I think is a bit excessive. But I loved the ambience and everything tasted good.
Seating and food were perfect. Very npisey hard to have a conversation at times.
Overall I would go back a second time
Been going to Beatrix for years! Love it! Only wish the Straight Salad was available for brunch! And if shrimp could be added to the menu.
Thank you Beatrix Team! ❤️
Vegan entree was excellent!
Food was pretty good and a wide variety of options
Beatrix was one of my favorite breakfast spots in River North. However, the menu has changed so much there really wasn’t anything that interested me. Food was good, just not great selections.
Delicious food in a classy environment - and a really delicious coffee to boot!
When we arrived the hostess was on the phone. She said to go wait. Next a three some with no rsvp came in. She proceeded to seat them first and then show us to the worst table in the place. Our server and the food were great, but initial impressions are lasting.
Both my guest and I were very pleased by the entire dining experience. It was a hot, humid evening, so we were uncertain about sitting outside. They gave us a table right at the front with AC but open doors--perfect. The appetizer and entrees were superb and our waiter--Jose--was incredible. A wonderful evening.
Excellent food and service. Great hostess. V accommodating
Visiting Chicago and this restaurant is attaches to our hotel. The reviews said it was good. We were not pleased, the best food on the table was the burger and then the chocolate cake. Guacamole was good but chips were stale. The halibuts on the tacos was over cooked and the tacos were disassembled. The short rib was more fat than meat and the shrimp corn risotto tasted like cream corn and rice and the shrimp was over cooked. The service was good and nice but lace but the food was underwhelming.
Food and service were both excellent! Loved the outdoor space. Will definitely be back again!
Great setting and menu. Servers were very friendly and knowledgeable.
Seating was uncomfortable on the sofa, but otherwise we had a great experience.
Great service! Sat us right away even though we were early for our reservation.
Food is great and the service even better! Thanks!
Great food as usual.
The Prime burger & veggie burger were both excellent and our server was too.
