What Insiders Are Saying
More comfortable than a MINI Cooper, Beatrix is a casual and versatile restaurant in River North.
Overall dinner was very good. The only disappointment was one out of three of our first choices was unavailable. The server didn’t know until placing the order. This seems like Service 101 and should have been aware of what was and was not available on the menu
Great service! Interesting options for healthy food that tastes good.
Such great food and service, suuuper overcrowded but I guess it was for Sunday brunch so that's to be expected! Great menu, so much to pick from.
Coffee, cocktails, service, and pancakes were on point! We had a wonderful time.
Definitely, on point waitstaff!!
Good food, nutritious options.... heavy on the avocado:)
Very crowded, which speaks volumes. .....When a table of 3 is willing to wait an hour for a table, it clearly says something about the restaurant.....worth the wait.
It was definitely loud; but it’s big and had a lot of people eating and laughing, which gave it good energy.
I’d go back.
Everything about Beatrix was wonderful- food, coffee drinks, service, 80s music that was playing while we dined. After brunch we ordered baked goods to go to enjoy later. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Fantastic restaurant! Great food and accommodating server. Always come here when I visit Chicago!
Great foo;, great service - no complaints!!
Amazing meal. We will be back next time we are in Chicago.
We had a fantastic time at Beatrix. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, the food was absolutely delicious, and we had lovely, friendly service. Would highly recommend.
The food, coffee and pastries are delicious! The menu offers interesting breakfast options that are out of the ordinary. I had the cauliflower grits with brussel sprouts and fried eggs. The dish was flavorful and filling. Emmy’s gluten free coffee cake was absolutely moist and delicious. You can’t go wrong with anything in the menu or out if the bakery counter.
Server was friendly and Knowledgeable. Great atmosphere and great food!
Short rib and flank steak were so delicious. Our waiter didn’t pay much attention to us, which was disappointing. Overall good experience though.
We went there for Valentine’s day dinner. Food was fabulous service was too notch. Great evening.
Such an enjoyable business lunch! Great service and timely delivery of delicious food, during the busiest time of day! Thank you for doing it right!
The food and drinks at Beatrix are always great. The service at my latest visit was slow, for a while it seemed like our waiter disappeared and my friend's order of bacon never came.
The hostess couldn't have been nicer. She went out of her way to get us all at one table when our group inadvertently turned into a seating nightmare. She was the epitome of professionalism and trying to make the customers happy. She bent over backwards for us and went above and beyond. This lady knows how to do her job and does it extremely well. The music was a bit too loud to carry on a conversation, but other than that, my experience couldn't have been better, mainly due to our hostess. I'll be back.
Service was great. We came for our wedding anniversary and they gave complimentary pastries for us.
Fantastic food at a really great price! The menu isn’t huge, but there is definitely enough variety for everyone to find something they’ll love.
First time at this Beatrix location and enjoyed this experience better. Our waitress was friendly and allowed me to sample a wine I wasn't familiar with. Always appreciate that. I ordered the hummus and roasted beets. Although they are both appetizers, I felt that was enough food for my dinner. I also had 2 glasses of the malbec. My friend talked up the caramel pie, which won awards, so she ordered that and I got the chocolate cake. The caramel pie was good, but a bit too sweet for my taste. The cake was smooth and more like a mouse pie, but very delicious.
I liked the atmosphere with the wee bakery window, the plants hanging from the ceiling and the yellow lighting. I would come back here.
Service was excellent and food was equally good.
Wonderful food and service!
Jose is the best waiter of the world: nice and efficient
It was very good
Always a delightful menu. We landed during restaurant week and the service and food was still tops. Great vegan selection as well.
The food is great here and I've always enjoyed it. I was able to find street parking and the location is great. However, the last time I had a lunch appointment, the noise level at the River North location was very loud and hard to hear the person sitting across the table from me. If you want to have conversations over a business lunch, you might want to select another place that isn't as loud and robust.
Went there for breakfast and liked it so much we returned for dinner. Creative dishes, fresh ingredients - this place is awesome.
Great food but our waiter disappeared halfway through the meal & never came back. There were barely any other customers there. We had to go to the front desk to get checked out. Not a good first experience service-wise. But the snacks, entrees, and drinks were enjoyable. Don't know if we'll be back.
Food was good, but not great. Service if staff was excellent and prompt. Would certainly visit again
Meeting up with out of town friends for brunch and everyone liked their meal. It was a bit slow for the food to come but the accommodations for vegan was fantastic!
I enjoyed this restaurant. The Tall, Dark and Chocolate Cake was amazing!
Love this restaurant - Food is great! Love the casual but cozy ambience. Our server, Alexa, was excellent!
Food was delicious! Good choice if looking for a restaurant with healthier options!
Also a solid place for brunch! The ambiance is nice and doesn't feel like a hotel restaurant.
Spent the weekend in Chicago and this place was recommended to us. It was great. I loved that there were some nice vegetarian options too. It was a pleasant atmosphere and great service.
Beatrix is a very nice place for breakfast. Food and service are all very good. Ambience is energetic rather than quiet. Background music was a bit too loud for me, but that is a matter of taste. There is nothing particularly memorable about Beatrix, but it seems to be striving to be a very good, reliable, and energetic option and in that it succeeds well.
Great meal! The waiter was very accommodating!
The food was great. The portion sizes were large and they were generous with veggies unlike many restaurants.
Dinner at 6pm during Restaurant week - terrible service, they tried to take a plate away while we were eating, and served the entrees when the appetizers hadn’t been cleared. I guess customers who come in during that week don’t deserve proper treatment; they pay less, so they should be rushed out quickly!
