We went for lunch. The menu was limited. The giardinera for the burger was bland and had no spice to it. Otherwise the burger was good. The keftka kabobs were almost inedible. The texture was off and very bland as well.

generally good reviews, but oddly loud music while people were having a nice dinner. It was difficult to hear ppl at my table, and it's not a venue where that was expected. We selected this place because we thought it would be a quiet place since several of us were mtg each other for the first time.

I was meeting with a potential client and wanted to meet them outside of the office. My coworkers said that Beatrix would be perfect to get some lunch and chat for a bit. The menu was perfect with a nice range of options from light, vegan offerings to a delicious sounding pot roast sandwich. I had soup and hummus and she had a caesar salad with chicken. Portion sizes were perfect, food looked and tasted perfect. The service was exceptional and we didn't feel rushed or ignored. Cozy setting for a cool autumn day. Perfect.

Some of our food was overcooked (“poached egg” was hard boiled), some was undercooked (sausage).

The place was great except for our server. When asked about lobby options, he told us to get up and go back up front and look on the board ourselves. When he asked for our order, he did so while talking to another staff person. He was rude and inattentive. Otherwise, everything was great!

My salad was delicious and my date seemed to like her soup, but I was too into her to focus on anything else. I gave everything 5 stars because I’m pretty sure the restaurant and food were outstanding. I’ll be back to make sure!

We have a very helpful, patient and descriptive waiter. The setting was very nice and elegant. Cocktails were not our favorite - either too sour or sweet, but wines were nice.

I normally love Beatrix but the cauliflower and grits were awful. We both had them and both thought it was awful. I’ve had that dish several times and it was good. We just didn’t feel like complaining, but it was really bad. No flavor at all.

Everything was great – service, food, atmosphere, would definitely go back. One comment I would have is the street outside of the restaurant was so icy, it was like a skate ring. I know the beginning of November is not when we expect so much snow and cold but they could've cleaned the street, at least a bit, even if it was only a 2 feet-wide walk way. The restaurant next to Beatrix had done an outstanding job with that, the street was walkable.

Lovely experience! We are big fans of Beatrix and especially like this location. We were celebrating my mom’s birthday, and the server brought two dessert options to celebrate because he remembered my mom’s food allergy from ordering earlier. So thoughtful and appreciated!

Beatrix is a long time favorite for both business lunches and get-togethers with friends. The food is always great and I love the casual but energetic vibe.

That said, the Fulton Market location does not compare favorably to other locations. The main reason is the service - not attentive and borderline snotty. The not so subtle eye-rolls when asked to be seated at a different table. The inaccurate bills that take forever to fix. No, thank you.

Always a great brunch spot but the water glasses smelled like eggs. I get it, it all gets washed in the same dishwasher. We asked for a couple fresh water glasses citing the issue specifically, and our server just brought us ice water; as if the ice would mask the smell. It didn’t. We ordered tea. He should have checked for smell and just brought us some from the night shift or something.

The host was one of the most rude and disrespectful individuals I have ever come across in a restaurant. Never have I been someplace where they wanted to turn down my money by delaying my seating. I requested to speak to a manager and that was never done. I had tickets to a show so I did not have time to deal with this in the moment. To top it all off, each meal came out luke warm and missing items.

You know that time when you are still talking about your dinner the next day? Well, you can expect that after eating at Beatrix! Food was amazing, wine perfect, dessert (OMG!!) divine, service engaging, and ambiance that allows you to relax and enjoy the decor, setting and company. Not stuffy. Fit for foodies. Enjoy!!

Overall it was really good. We appreciated the healthy options on the menu. Service was good, maybe a bit slow getting started, but very friendly and helpful. A bit chilly sitting under the overhead air supply and a little more sound absorbing material in the restaurant would help the noise level. But, overall it was great and we’d return for sure!

The staff was amazing and accommodating. Salmon was delicious but lay on a bed of uninspired veggies, my partner in crime had the “Neatloaf” which was very bland and needed salt ( most people’s grandmothers cld easily make better meatloaf). Ambiance was beautiful but aggravated by poor music choice-while the average age of diners looked to be abt 40 the music was kind of loud and kind of Taylor Swift sounding. Perhaps tailoring the music to the vibe of the evening (Monday, bit of an older crowd) would have been wiser.
Not a bad experience but definitely a few tweaks wld have made it a stellar experience.
