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.

They were running 30 min behind in reservations then we were at a table right by the door where the cold air would hit us every time the door was opened. Nothing but a sorry we are busy. Won’t be returning to this location.

Highly recommend the Blueberry and Basil Smash fresh-squeezed juice--unique and delicious (no added sugar, simply fresh-squeezed juice)--and if you're so inclined, a fellow diner spiked hers and thoroughly enjoyed!

Beatrix Streeterville was an easy walk from the Sheraton Chicago Hotel four mains: the Szechuan Chicken, Housemade Ricotta Ravioli w/Butternut Squash (my favorite!), Slow-Braised Short Rib, and Chili and two desserts: Oh My! Caramel Pie (finally a rival for Barbuzzo's salted caramel budino!) and the Tall, Dark & Handsome Chocolate Cake. Everything was terrific and we loved that our server was a Philly-transplant! Would definitely return.

We needed a good place for Sunday brunch to meet some friends, and Beatrix - Streeterville was the ideal place. A great location, seated right away, and a solid offering for brunch. The menu provided a good mix of standard options and innovative ones like cauliflower grits and eggs. Our food was excellent, along with the coffee. Service was attentive and friendly. Overall, a solid experience!

The food and service was very good. We had a reservation for 6, but we only ended up having 5 and there were no issues with the change. We were seating right away and the waitress was fantastic. I had the pork shank and it was so good. We also ordered a slice of their pumpkin pecan pie for the table to try and they ended up bringing us 2 slices on them. Everything was very good and I would highly recommend this place.
