    My husband and I have gone to Beatrix several times for brunch over the years and it does not disappoint. Try the avocado and jalapeño toast! It’s one of my absolute favorites on the menu.

    Staying in the Aloft, Beatrix is an easy decision. After the first visit, I now go every day I’m at the hotel. And yes, it’s a lot of days. Great coffee, great food, great team! Try the house made chicken sausage for breakfast.

    We specifically went to Beatrix for their vegetarian friendly Chicago Restaurant Week menu. When we ordered we were informed that the only vegetarian entree option wasn’t available, and that we wouldn’t be able to substitute another meat free option. This prohibited us from enjoying the restaurant week pre fix menu.

    Went for Chicago Resturaunt week and such a delicious meal. I had the egg white omelet with chicken sausage on the side and this chicken sausage was incredible. Best chicken sausage I have ever had. My cousin got the Prime burger and said the burger Patty was very flavorful. The menu has so many items I will definitely be going back!

    My husband and I love the food at Beatrix, so we chose Beatrix to celebrate my husband's birthday. Sadly, the food was not great. It was the first day of Restaurant Week in Chicago, so I ordered from the Restaurant Week special menu. My main course was Chicken Bebe. The chicken was flavorful; however, it was very difficult to cut and the meat was quite tough. It made for an unsatisfactory entree. The appetizer, whipped feta, was okay. The dessert, chocolate cake, was tasty and enough for the two of us to split. We'll be back, but it was unfortunate to have a less than lackluster meal for a special celebration.

    I really like Beatrix! Food is good, tasty & solid. Prices are reasonable. I love the cozy vibe and ambience. People and staff are friendly and nice. I’ve had the muffins and coffee to go, brunch and dinner. I live in River North and like to walk there. There were a couple times when the server took a while. But the manager gave us complimentary cookies to go. So I appreciate that. Going again soon for brunch. Definitely one of my go-to restaurants in my neighborhood!

    We felt rushed the entire time we were there. Salads came out with the main courses. On salad was incorrect and I got my desert and the check at the same time. If you’re looking for dinner and conversation, this is not the place. You have no time. Beatrix at Fulton Market is better.

    I think it is usually a reliable choice, but it feels expensive and not interesting. I would rather pay more for something better. The concept needs attention and some new energy!

    First of all, we had to wait for our waiter to clock in for his shift. There wasn’t any interim staff to wait on us for a while. Everything that I wanted to order wasn’t in stock. The waiter was not very attentive. My friend ordered a side of chicken sausage with his entree. It didn’t arrive until after he had already finished his main course. The hashbrowns were like cardboard. I went somewhere else to eat afterwards.

    My daughter and I stopped here for a New Year's brunch date. Neither of us enjoyed our food. I had lemon and blackberry pancakes that were spongy and tasted like eggs. My daughter didn't like her egg sandwich and her hashbrowns were burnt. I probably would not return here.

    We were out for NYE. We were seated next to the door which was very cold and we’re only given one menu with a shrug from the hostess who never returned with a second one or informed us about the menu being online. Our waitress did not come back very often and nobody offered a drink menu. It all seemed like everyone was miserable to be there. We’ve also been going for years and several good items have been replaced or changed. The chicken bebe came with 4 pieces of asparagus, no potato or anything else. It was very disappointing and I think we’ll have to remove this from our frequent places.

    Delicious food but an inattentive waitress. We had to ask several times for more water and coffee. She seemed to not even realize our glasses were empty. It is a cute restaurant that always seems crowded so we appreciate being able to make reservations.

    Always great time and meal at Beatrix. The only improvement suggestion is for the restaurant to use a thinner piece of bread for the avocado toast. It was way too thick for this dish. But overall it is a favorite and we visit every time we visit Chicago.

    Love, Love LOVE Beatrix, particularly the one in River North. The food here is amazing, no matter what I try on the menu I just love it. They have the best Gluten Free Naan I've ever had, but its not just that. They have so many GF options in the bakery as well as on the menu. Today I had the Bacon and Egg Sandwich with a GF bun. I thought it would just be toast, but nope, it was a delicious GF bun. My wife eats all the gluten and raved about her choices as well, including the eggs your way and a peanut butter cookie from the bakery.
