Beatrix has become a go-to spot for awesome breakfast whenever I’m in Chicago, and has yet to disappoint. This weekend was no different. Lemon ricotta pancakes are worth the trip!

Was disappointed with my Beatrix experience having heard people raving about the original location. I arrived before my friend, but the hostess was able to seat me fairly quickly after I arrived. The waitress approached me and took my drink order and then I proceeded to wait 15 minutes before my glass of wine arrived. The waitress did serve drinks to the table in front of me and drop off and pick up the check for the table next to me, but no wine. When the wine final arrived it was a tiny pour, more like a taste, and had something floating on top. Once we got the wine sorted we placed our order, and the food came out fairly quickly. We ordered a salad and the chicken Bebe (both to share). The chicken was tasty, but the salad was wilted, like it had been dressed earlier and sat for a while. Overall, this experience was nothing special.

I love the Beatrix family of restaurants...the food is delicious.
The only hiccup was the server—-she kept coming by the table asking if we were ready to order; we barely had a moment to get comfortable! This continues throughout the meal, and I felt like she was trying to turn the table.

Typically consistent, Beatrix Streeterville fell short. The salad was WAY WAY overdressed, the brussel sprouts were cold and sauce was goopy and the short rib and sides were luke warm. We have been to Beatrix over 30 times and really disappointed.

Visited Chicago at the end of our 10 day vacation. Needed some vegetables and this satisfied my husband’s American food and my vegetarian needs. Had great dinner and the next morning an even better breakfast. Highly recommend the veggie lasagna and cauliflower grits.

We sat at the table just to the left of the kitchen door at a three-top. It was pretty dirty around us - the floor, and ESPECIALLY, the wall behind/next to the bench seat. Since I was sitting in a chair facing that wall, it was pretty gross. Obviously, people touch the wall as they are squeezing themselves into the bench seat, but but it looks like it has never been wiped clean or repainted! I just felt like the whole area was unclean (and I am not a clean freak, believe me!).

The food was good, but not good enough to go back. My first time there, over a year ago, was a much better experience.

Our waitress and the sweet young lady in training were very nice!

Thank you.

Service pretty much nonexistent. Host tossed down menus. Waiter disappeared after we got our meal. Showed up once to check if we wanted more wine. Food was good enough. I’ve eaten here several times, but now nothing more than its location convenient to work would make me go back.

We were pleasantly surprised by our experience for dinner. We were just looking for a casual bite ( 10 of us, 3 who were doing the marathon the next morning) but it turned out to be a great night! A lively atmosphere and wide (inventive) food choices provided something for everyone. A neat place.

Excellent Gluten Free Brunch Options. The food was superb. The only reason I did not rate higher was I reserved a high top and there was one available when we arrived but a table of two was put there and we were placed elsewhere.

Waitress was wonderful. Offered to take our beer off the bill when she asked how it was and we said we preferred fuller bodied beer. She later brought us one remaining bottle that was left from earlier offering and didn’t even charge us after we said we liked it. Meal was wonderful and staff was very nice and attentive

I had the chicken bebe and don’t know what was the problem with it but it was horrible, tasting sour or something weird, I almost couldn’t swallow it. But since I was very hungry I almost finish anyway. But I should have listened to my instinct, 2 hours later I through it all out. It is so sad because I have never had any problem at the Fullerton or river north locations.

Good food but the room was so loud, plus the music was deafening. The result was that you could only talk with the person seated to one side of you, not conducive to a Sunday get-together with friends. During the week, meeting a single person, seated at a small table away from the loud-speaker.....Beatrix is a great spot. Sunday morning is a different story.

We always like Beatrix, but on this Sunday I don't know why it took about 10 minutes for us to get our first glass of water. Later, during the meal it took asking three times (including the second time to a man who seemed to be in some sort of management position) over 15 minutes to get more water. I don't know if they were understaffed, but it was an issue to have spicy foods and nothing to drink.
