What Insiders Are Saying
More comfortable than a MINI Cooper, Beatrix is a casual and versatile restaurant in River North.
Both hostess and servers were not particularly nice. Definitely have some attitude. Food was fine. Nothing spectacular but perfectly fine.
1. Received wrong meal on one order.
2. Salmon came out raw on second order. It was ordered as: ‘medium rare - not raw’.
3. Birthday points we thought were $30, only given $15.
4. Waitress seemed uninterested in the diner’s needs. Seemed to be just there for the tip.
Had a lovely meal as we met to discuss / plan our daughter’s upcoming wedding, shower, and bachelorette party. Service was great. Food was delicious. Will definitely return.
Fantastic food; our table ordered green chili enchiladas, egg white omelette, the belgian waffles and the steak chimichurri and everyone was without critique. The caramel pie was decadent. The service was very accommodating and attentive. Great brunch choice.
My husband and I had a lettuce entertain you gift card and selected Beatrix due to the number of vegan options.
Our server was excellent and had great recommendations. I liked what I ate, with the farotto being the best thing.
Very good, I will be back!
There were 6 of us dining and they were able to seat us early into a nice round table. Our server Chris was friendly, attentive and informative. The cocktails were fantastic, as were the appetizers. One slight hiccup was one of our party's entrees was not ready at the same time as the rest of us, but they immediately apologized and rectified the situation. We all enjoyed our entrées and would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.
Great atmosphere and delicious food. We had the burrata cheese app (simple but yum!!), the A-Plus salad (super yum and well dressed) and I had the salmon (which is essentially salmon mole tacos with slaw). These were far more delicious than I imagined. Crunchy edges while the fish was moist and not over-sauced. Really great experience overall. I would definitely go here again when in town.
Love the Turkey Neatloaf-one of my favorite dishes anywhere in Chicago! Most comforting dish with two great sides. You just have to try it!
Really good burgers.
Beatrix was a fabulous place for Sunday brunch with a friend! The food and service was fantastic and the coffee spectacular. I will definitely be returning time and time again.
I would strongly recommend that the table order the Kung Pao Brussel Sprouts! We had three different entrees and all were great. Love their take on Fish N Chips. Noise level is a bit high in case you want to have a conversation.
The food was the best part....wow, knocked it out of the park! Loved the cappucinos, the breakfast food, the avocado toast, the mimosas...it was all outstanding and perfectly prepared!!!
The service however, left much to be desired. The bartender that took the cappucino order from my friend and I looked "bothered" that we ordered them, and really didn't seem to enjoy his job at all. Our waitress, once we were seated, took our drink orders and brought them back in 10 minutes and then it took 15 more minutes before she came back for our order. Yes, the restaurant was busy, but she was also standing at the cash register stand chatting it up with other waitstaff. Also, her attitude was similar to the bartender. I can only describe it as "annoyed" that she had to wait on us. It soured the experience.
Great experience and good food
Fantastic food and service!
A welcoming and fun atmosphere with delicious food. Lots of trendy and healthy choices.
Really delicious. Perfect for a business lunch
Everything was excellent from the moment we walked in the door until we left...
Fresh food that is delicious. Loved the Brussel Sprouts appetizer. The dinner special was Thai Fish and Chips and it was fabulous. Enjoyed the atmosphere.
Brunch was fabulous. Lots of unique food options at reasonable prices. Service was perfect. Just the right amount of attention.
This was the first time our Book Club has met at the same restaurant for 2 consecutive meetings. We were so pleased with Beatrix after our March meeting that we decided to meet there again. The 2 drivers had a problem finding parking spaces within a block of the site -- most unusual on Sunday mornings. We may try one of the other Beatrix sites (in a quieter neighborhood) next time. We were seated immediately - great! We would have preferred to sit in a "quieter" place (we meet to discuss a book) but the table where we sat in February and most others were not available. I probably should have requested a specific table when I made the reservation(?) Nevertheless, we managed to discuss the book between bites of the delicious meals. Everyone ordered something different and cannot remember who had what. I recall that we did more eating and talked about the food more than we discussed the book! The service was especially good - seemed the waiter anticipated our needs/requests -- he was great! Another delightful experience at Beatrix. B.Orton for The Book Club
Fantastic dining experience for any occasion
I made a reservation. Our table seemed to be on the edge almost into hotel lobby. There was a cold breeze every time someone entered the hotel lobby. It was also right next to a mini fridge they keep water in. So the waiters were constantly bending down and opening door behind my chair. I would have expected a better table being I made a reservation. Our waiter was great until he got 3 other tables. We sat with empty drinks for over 20 mins. I wanted another glass of wine but the waiter was too busy with other tables. So I just opened mini fridge and got my own water. Put that all aside, the food was delicious.
Due to health reasons, I am gluten and dairy free, avoiding a few odd ingredients on top of that. Beatrix never even blinked. I had appetizers (hummus and Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts - WOW), horseradish mashed potatoes with my Chimichurri skirt steak, and a phenomenal pomegranate chia pudding for DESSERT!!! So thrilled that restaurants get that corn and vegetable oil are nasty/dangerous and shouldn't be used in food prep. We have already made plans to visit again. If you have food allergies, I highly recommend giving them a try. I was NOT disappointed in the least!
It was my wife’s birthday and everyone made it a special occasion. We will definitely be back!
Great food, excellent drinks, and attentive service!
Food was good, but service was outstanding. Neil never let our coffee cups go empty, prompt service and friendly. Look forward to going back and sit in his section again!
Emma was amazing and she gave us great suggestions to try! The fresh juices were especially delicious.
Our waitress was so kind about my medical dietary restrictions. She even brought over the full menu with all the ingredients from the kitchen so that I could make sure I didn’t have a hidden allergen. Thank you for being so sweet and making me so comfortable!! It makes a huge difference when dining out to feel safe.
Wonderful food and atmosphere
Great food and great service! Thanks again!
We celebrated a birthday brunch at Beatrix and per usual could not have been happier with the food or the service! They gave us a free pecan French toast appetizer with candles in it to celebrate. The little things are very much appreciated! One of the many reasons why Beatrix is one of our favorite spots in the city for any occasion. Get the lemon pancakes!
Best brunch I have had in Chicago! Will be going back!
I came on a Saturday morning around 10:30AM for breakfast with a party of six. The restaurant was already a little crowded. While we waited to be seated, we tried to find standing room near the bar, which was tight. The crowd was very energetic, the noise level was loud, and there was music, which was terrible. We were seated very quickly though; and our server made great food recommendations. We had the mimosas, which were amazing, and the poached eggs with quinoa cakes are a must; so is the nutella cookie. We ordered quite a bit of food. Our entire bill, including tip, totaled to about $150, which was very good for a group of six people. All in all, it was a pretty good experience.
Fantastic food. Friendly service. But missed several refills for coffee and soda.
Great salads. Healthy alternative. Service is good, honored my reservation request, let us take our time.
I usually always love Beatrix, but they brought out pretty burnt waffles for me to eat, almost inedible and definitely not tasty. For that to get past kitchen, expeditor, and runner? Bad form. Thankfully our server was on it. I have never sent back food before, but burnt waffles did me in. I think I’ll stick to West Loop location in the future as I have never had any problems there.
I usually love this restaurant but for some reason, everything was just meh. Our server was great but the food was very bland and ordinary, and I ordered the A salad with salmon which is something I've ordered and enjoyed many times. My husbands Asian chicken was bland as well. Don't know if I'll go back with so many restaurants to choose from.
Had a group business meeting/lunch. The space is accommodating and the food is delicious. I strongly recommend.
Great food at a reasonable price, would definitely recommend for a casual lunch with friends, colleagues or clients
