Stellar food. I told my wife I would order the Rosebud Pappardelle with Bolognese Sauce again tomorrow night. No hesitation. Best pasta dish ever! And we would split it because our dinners were so big there was no room for dessert!

We decided to go to Beatrix to celebrate Mother's Day this year. It was our choice for a few reasons including location, availability and cost, but also because of the number of great sounding vegan options available for one of the members of our party. Overall, the restaurant was casual and beautiful, our server helpful, the food great. The hostess was over-zealous, however, and threatened to ruin our evening even before we arrived. She called my cell to confirm we were coming 10 minutes before we were due for our 6:45 seating. We explained we were on the way and would be there shortly. When we actually arrived at 6:50 (BTW - only 5 minutes late), we noted the lobby was empty except for our party. A number of tables were occupied, but not all. They were certainly not super-busy. The hostess, by way of greeting however, commented on our tardiness, explaining that she had had to change our reservation to 7 pm (even though there was a 15 minute grace period) so now we were 10 minutes early. She made it clear that she'd done us a favor, and that if we'd arrived after the grace period we'd have been penalized. We were presented with this explanation of how we'd made her evening difficult instead of made to feel our effort to be there at all (and in the rain) was appreciated. Who knows...maybe it was not her best night. Anyway, after we were seated, all went well. Dinner was delicious (yes, including the vegan selections), venue clean and comfortable, special requests accommodated and the children in our party treated like customers. All in all, the evening ended well and we'll be back.

Food was great as was service. I was disappointed as I tried to change my reservation 10 days in advance from 5 people to 7 and was told they could only change it to 6 as they were just too full. Therefore, my husband stayed home as he wanted all of the Moms in our group to be able to celebrate Mother’s Day. We got to the restaurant and they were busy, but could’ve definitely fit a party of 7 as there were definitely empty spaces over a solid period of time throughout. Otherwise, all was well. I just felt bad that we had to exclude him due to surprise visitors from out of town.

The food here is so wonderful and it's really nice to have a spot like this so close to the hospital and magnificent mile, especially for a quick work lunch. However, the service we had was not very good - it took half an hour before we were even able to place our order and the restaurant was not very busy. The quality of the food is always great!

Really enjoyed Beatrix... great service, food and ambiance. The only caveat is that depending on where you are seated, the noise can be really loud. Fortunately we were in a much quieter back room.
Really enjoyable evening of drinks and dinner.

The decibel level is so high that you cannot hear across a small table. If that’s what you love, go for it. All else was okay. Pleasant service.

The cauliflower salads were excellent. The quinoa avocado tacos were disappointing. A few canned black beans at the bottom of a mini corn tortilla topped with the quinoa crusted avocado. No great flavors melding, salsa was just crushed tomatoes, slaw was ok but there should have been more..
Many other menu items are well thought out; however this one was a plate full of nothing..

Been to this place a few times. Everything was delicious and fresh tasting, except for the fries. They used to be great but they were undercooked and flavorless.

On the positive side though, their juices, brussel sprouts and burger were on point!

Beatrix has outstanding service as one has come to expect from Lettuce Entertain You restaurants. The food, however, left something to be desired. I had the cauliflower salad which was excellent and very fresh and flavorful. I made the mistake of adding chicken, which was dry as a board and utterly flavorless. I will not make the same mistake when I return to Beatrix, which I certainly will. The bakery and coffee bar are bright spots. Treat yourself to a fantastic rugelach!

Beatrix is my favorite breakfast/ brunch spot in Chicago. The food is excellent- fresh, healthyish, creative and delicious. I highly recommend their fresh juices and a honey cinnamon latte (rotates as a special but you can always order it). The lemon pancakes and bacon are some of my favorites.
