We went for lunch and didn't have much time. The service was great our meals came quickly and they divided the salad that we were going to split for us. So we got to relax even though we were on a schedule.

Good food, fair service. Unfortunately had an advance reservation for 7, and were placed at a table for five in a corner. Very uncomfortable for all. We were offered a table for 7 if we cared to wait an hour.

Waiter inattentive: had to ask for water on three separate occasions. Will not return.

The beet salad was delicious, citrusy flavors...only comment is it could’ve used a little more of the feta spread. Service was extremely helpful, friendly & professional. Hamburger was perfect, as was the ricotta ravioli w butternut squash & greenbeans, soft pillows of deliciousness! The topper truly was the caramel pie, do not pass it up...surprisingly not too sweet, with the tenderest melt in your mouth shortbread crust, yum!!!

Great for brunch. Belgium Waffles are the best. Wish they would offer a side of ham, pork sausage or smoked bacon ( they do have brown sugar bacon, but too sweet to eat)

Beer and cocktail menu is not your typical basics, has some really interesting drinks. Had the Kung Pao Brussels sprouts and chicken meatballs at the suggestion of the server. Both were really good. He also suggested the caramel pie- unbelievable. Nice place to meet up with a group downtown.

We loved everything about Beatrix! The service, wine and food were all excellent. I was especially impressed with the selection of vegetarian and vegan menu items. The vegan mushroom farrotto was so full of flavor, hearty and satisfying!

Made reservation for 2:45 arrived early at 2:32 and they wouldn’t seat us until 2:45. Next time I’ll pick the 2:30 reservation, which was available and show up late. There were plenty of seats available when we walked into the restaurant.

Met an out-of-town friend for dinner - some business, mostly personal. Server was helpful and friendly, gave her recommendations. Had the fresh squeezed juice which was good. Started off with Kung Pao Brussel Sprouts - they were great: tangy, smoky, delicious! Ordered the Wagu Pot Roast on recommendation. It came with mashed potatoes and baby carrots. It was good but lacked seasoning. Friend had Prime Burger, said it was very good. Other items on the menu looked really good (e.g., Butternut Squash Ravioli) and I will likely go back to try them. Atmosphere was good, noise level moderate.

Second time and was impressed both times. Simple dishes have a complexity only found in higher end eateries. The food is cooked well - not over or undercooked and the vegetable and sides are well done and really enhance the meal. We had dessert and that too was made with near perfection. Not overly sweet and overwhelming but a good taste with definite uniqueness coming out from even simple tastes. The service can be a bit spotty given the volume of business but the wait staff were working hard to keep the flow and were friendly and approachable. Highly recommended.

As always the good was good. However the service was so bad that it detracted from our whole experience. The waiter was very inattentive. We had the attempt many times to get his attention to even get our bill. Have been to Beatrix many times but have noticed that wait staff is not as good as it used to be.

Good place to get out of the cold and get a meal. Food came fast, but the meal was just mediocre. Salad was way too dressed and vegetarian option seemed mass produced.
