Beatrix always has a fantastic breakfast and brunch selection. On top of that, their spicy Bloody Mary is phenomenal and they have a lot of gluten free options. Recommend the egg white omelet and the quinoa cakes with poached eggs as but two of many excellent menu selections.

This was a return visit for us, so I was looking forward to the braised pork shank & was not disappointed as was the case with my wife's meat loaf. Both were very ample, qualifying for a doggy bag, but I was a little puzzled by the mashed white potatoes Plus sweet potato cubes on the same platter but no green vege. Our reserved seating was delayed due to no open table, a minor disappointment, but a comped hummus appetizer was a nice touch...all forgiven.

We came in early but the host was very willing to seat us immediately. The wait staff was informative and appropriately friendly. The food was very good but I thought a bit over priced (although perhaps the pricing is consistent with the Streeterville location).

10/10 would recommend to a friend. Nowadays, it feels like the restaurant industry is on a decline because the quality in training the staff has declined, in my opinion. Not at Beatrix! The staff was very refined while being very down to Earth. It really made the whole experience very positive, in addition to the interior ambiance of the restaurant. I was very pleased with and impressed by the service we received.

This was our favorite meal of the weekend. The cauliflower grits and kale salad were both fantastic! This is a really good option for a mixed table of vegetarians and paleo diners.

Had a late evening dinner at Beatrix. Great that it's part of LEYE. Food selections were not only very good but in abundant portions. Seemed like our waiter was a little disappointed that he had to serve "older people" - so points off for service attitude.

Perfect location to walk to our matinee at the chicago Shakespeare theater on the Navy Pier after our brunch. Breakfast food with a twist. We shared eggs Benedict oh quinoa cakes, chicken sausage and fried egg on cheesy grits. Delicious. I left with the idea that maybe I might be able to duplicate the experience.

Amazing freshly squeezed juice. Great atmosphere overall with couches for coffee and awesome food. Green Enchildas for breakfast was awesome and the pancakes and waffles are great as well. Some of the best food I've had in a long time out of town for breakfast.

My friend and I ate simple food from the brunch menu which I don’t think is a fair trial for a restaurant. I would be willing to have a real meal there and based on that experience could respond to the question about recommending the restaurant. The service was friendly and helpful.

Upon my arrival I had to wait for the staff to finish their conversation so I can be seated. We had 3 entree orders, one of which was messed up. We ordered a parmesan chicken with no asparagus and fries on the side. It came with all the asparagus and no fries.. I should have known then to just eat my food and leave, but no we also ordered desserts. The chocolate cake came IN A DIRTY PLATE ....it was replated and a could clearly see the finger prints of how it was lifted up from one plate to another ...I could only hope they washed their hands before touching my food... given that no one wanted to try it so we just paid and left ...
Over all the food was delicious, the ambiance is modern and pleasant, but THE SERVICE IS TERRIBLE AND THE PLACE IS NOT CLEAN

This used to be a great place to have lunch. But the front desk staff are pretty insufferable bordering on rude. The wait staff needs remedial training, if someone asks for coffee with cream or sugar, they might need a spoon, the guest shouldn't have to flag down a server to get one. Food should that is supposed to be hot should be at least warmer than room temperature. Roasted Brussels sprouts probably shouldn't be cold. Really beginning to look forward to Marisol at the MCA being open for lunch.

Live close to Beatrix and love the food and restaurant . A farm to table atmosphere with menu options to satisfy all. For salads the Krispy kale salad with chicken is my favorite. For something more substantial , the turkey meatloaf is excellent. Did i mention the Tuna poke appetizer. Whatever you select u will be happy.

Beatrix is rapidly becoming my go to place for great food and the right mix of casual dining with a flair. I have been to all the locations and while each has its own sensibility you can count on very good, healthful food and friendly service. The pastry bar and coffees are some of the best in town. My guests can always find something wonderful whether they want comfort food, paleo, vegetarian or a flavor adventure.

We had a lovely lunch here! Nice to have this place so close to Northwestern Hospital and Michigan Avenue. Had a delicious salad and the fries (really fresh chips) were awesome. The room is bustling and nicely decorated. Servers were pleasant and efficient enough. I would go back.

Great for breakfast/brunch on weekends but a little pricy.
I used to go for lunch pick up in the take out area but feel the prices have gone up.
Also in the restaurant, used to be able to order a side of Lemon Pancakes (great btw).
I wanted to order eggs and bacon breakfast with a side of pancakes but the price went up to $4 a pancake? Very good food and service but overpriced.

I've eaten at Beatrix before, but not at the Streeterville location. I love the healthy, but delicious food. Although I occasionally eat meat, I look for restaurants that carry appetizing meat-free options. For an appetizer, I highly recommend the Kung Pao Brussels sprouts. I could eat those all day. I've had the mushroom risotto and the Chicken Bebe. I recommend both dishes. The chicken dish is slightly heavier because of the buttery sauce, but it comes with a lemon to squeeze over the meal so that cuts through the "heaviness." This time around I decided to order a dessert. My server suggested the caramel pie, but that seemed a bit heavy after the dinner. So, instead, I ordered the Lemon olive oil cake with vanilla whipped cream and plum compote. I'm so glad that I did because it was sweet, but light.

Beatrix is located in the hospital where I work - and I am so glad it is here. They offer the most wonderful, creative, fresh and delicious salads, along with a fuller menu of other options, as well. I am "stuck" on their salads, and I have never been disappointed.
