More comfortable than a MINI Cooper, Beatrix is a casual and versatile restaurant in River North.
Our experience with the server was not good but the floor manager made things right. That made all the difference.
Food was great as always! Our server was superb, that is not an always, but this time the server was great. We have had good luck with the female servers. We will leave it at that.
Had a lovely experience at Beatrix on a Monday night. Originally made the reservation for 3 people, changed it to 4, and then had to change it to 9. The hostesses were amazing and very helpful. We had the best server - she was extremely helpful and attentive. The food was incredible and very plant-forward which is what I love. Highly recommend this restaurant for its food and atmosphere.
Little pricey compare with other places I ate , but still, I will recommend it
Jose was great & very attentive! And the hostess was really accommodating since I had a scooter with me bc of a broken leg. Amazing food as always!
This was our first time dining at Beatrix and we will definitely be returning! Kelsey the manager was OVER the top accommodating and so sweet explaining the drink history of my chosen drink and the meals, making sure we had the best experience. I got the special which was a Cuban chicken dish. It was SO fresh and delightful! My husband got the Chicken Bebe which was also amazing and so flavorful. Overall such a nice dinner, we will definitely be back!!
The waiter did an excellent job. Great recommendations. Burrata with pesto was super. Sea bass delicious. Salted Caramel with shortbread crust pie was awesome.
The hostess stand seemed a bit disorganized and once we were seated it seemed like maybe our server didn’t know he had a table. Once the server came over, everything was great! He suggested great cocktails and was attentive. Our food and drinks were delicious!
Service was slow, server forgot orders, felt like a factory.
Food is good, but the service was really bad. I saw at least five employees, with as many customers in the place and still couldn't get refills/check ins after our food arrived, we waited for probably 10 minutes with our empty plates sitting off to the side before we were asked if we want our check. Tho hostess didn't even greet us when we cam e in, just kind of rolled her eyes and led us to the table.
On a very minor note, the ambiance of the place is nice, but it's weird that there is no consistency, there were at least eight different kinds of chairs, it struck me as odd...
Service was excellent and server was delightful. Food was very good, as always.
Our waiter was friendly, helpful and fun! Food was delicious.
Beatrix is still one of the best places in the city for a breakfast meeting. Food is alway consistent, tables not too close, service is usually quite good and it's a great location. The one nit that continues to baffle me is when they don't want to seat you if everyone in your party hasn't arrived. That makes perfect sense during lunch or dinner when the place is crowded, but at 7am when not even 1/2 of the tables are taken, I find it frustrating. At least offer me the option rather than saying "let me know when everyone is here."
I don't remember my servers name, but it was a day that coffee was going to be put to WERK. He was fantastic and patient and super upbeat especially for morning service. The host staff was sooo lovely and kind as well as the support staff. The menu was SUPER creative and my food was so good I wanted to lick the plate, if I wasn't with my super professional friend, I would have. I will be back, I will lick my plate. And judgement doesn't bother me !!!
1st Mother’s Day
One of my faves in River North! Impeccable food, top notch staff and a fun atmosphere. Don't miss brunch, but make a reservation!
Went for Mother’s Day Brunch. Didn’t know about bakery and coffee available. Waiter never told us or promoted. Great meal and mimosa
Fantastic Mother’s Day brunch
It took 30 mins for us to get drinks (mojitos) but they were poorly made. The lime was not fresh, no sugar and you could tell the rum was a bad one. Then came the food which was below average. We complaint to the manager and offer us free desert which was brought to share (but without small plates or additional cutlery).
What a shame. We have had breakfast at Beatrix before and it was wind fearful. Definitely will not come back.
Everyone enjoyed their meals - the sea bass was excellent as was the filet. Healthy and comfort food choices are available. Very unique and fresh cocktails. Dessert was delicious as well - we had the caramel pie and the coconut cream - both were amazing! Eduardo our server was attentive, helpful with food choices, and very friendly.
Made a reservation and for 6 had a very nice time and meal
Great breakfast place!
Food was amazing lots of veggie option! Jerry superb
Excellent service and fresh amazing food! We had a party of twelve and everything was spot on!
Always good with healthy choices. Consistent and menu items that will satisfy everyone. We had a breakfast meeting and everyone enjoyed.
The server provided phenomenal service! Unfortunately, the food took forever (about 40 mins!!) to get to us.
Lemon pancakes were best thing I have ever had- light and refreshing! My friend had an omelet that was fabulous. But too noisy. Still I would go back for food.
We couldn't choose between sweet and savory breakfast, so we chose both! The lemon ricotta pancakes were a perfect "dessert" for the cauliflower grits and egg white omelet. And the pastry counter has inexpensive homemade goodies like asiago-bacon croissants and a chocolate chip coffee cake that you have to see to believe.
Went here for my birthday dinner — it was great! Amazing service and food. Great ambience as well.
The food, drinks, ambiance and especially our server Jose were all phenomenal! The manager Luis came out and greeted us as well. It was a lovely experience and I can’t wait to go back.
Hot date with hot girl!!!!
We really like this place but today everything (food and service) was below average
Great food and service. Had breakfast and everything on the menu was tempting. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions. It's joined to the Aloft hotel so it has a young, energetic vibe, but it wasn't so hip as to make this 40-something feel too old. Would definitely recommend and would try again if back in Chicago.
I stopped here for dinner while in town for a conference. It was very pleasant,
Pretty neat place. Staff was friendly and the food came out in a timely manner.
Beatrix over books, they take way more reservations than they can accommodate. My Husband & I arrived to our reservation on-time & waited 23 minute for our party of 2 to be seated. The hostess was not apologetic or friendly. After placing our drink order we waited 15 minutes & our waiter returned empty handed apologizing that the drinks were not yet ready.
Food was amazing as well as service! Highly recommend the green chile enchiladas!
