I love Beatrix and have dined there several times. On this occasion, however, the AC did not seem to be working properly. On a day where the temps were above 95 degrees, this made the hot food difficult to enjoy. We actually ordered our dessert to go because it was too uncomfortable to sit inside. The service was also slower than usual, as we had to wait with empty water glasses for about 15 minutes before they were refilled. Again, this is not typical of the restaurant and I would normally be happy to wait, but with the heat both outside and inside the restaurant, frequent water service was necessary. Overall, our experience on this date was just so-so.

The food was surprisingly dull. Salmon with mole turned out to be a very dry piece of farmed salmon with a chalky sauce. The accompanying "smoked almond slaw" slaw was so thoroughly laced with cilantro (not mentioned on the menu) as to be completely inedible, which may sound like a picky complaint but at this point restaurants should understand that a good portion of diners find it nauseating.

I hadn't realized Beatrix has 4 locations and is part of a 140+ unit restaurant group. It certainly has a generic feel.

Just an excellent restaurant, particularly for vegetarians. You don’t feel like you are missing out when you eat vegetarian there.

Beatrix has decent food and the food is decent. If you’re looking for an average dining experience then look no further.

We had an 8:30 reservation and were seated around 8:45. Our waitress was friendly, after dropping our drinks off, came back about 20 mins later to inform us that the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes. It all felt very rushed. Additionally I ordered the halibut panzanella and it was literally just fish and tomatoes, with the rest of the listed accoutrements missing.

We were able to sit outside. The furniture there was very comfortable. The food is awesome; Prime Burger was delicious, Chicken Bebe is a MUST if you love chicken (with parmesan, yum, incredible!). Brussels Sprouts and Tuna apps were super tasty, too! All around great experience. Our waiter was not as attentive as I would've preferred but got the job done, for sure. I would highly recommend to friends.

The food seemed to want to go in a good direction but it just wasn’t there in terms of taste and cost. The space was wonderful and the service was good. The best part about this experience was the intelligentsia coffee.

Service was not on point, and they do not take advantage of all the windows, keeping the shades down even at night. Food was ok, nothing particularly stood out.

This is my second visit. Either the quality has dropped or I was not in a good mood. I think the former. French Fries were well below average, certainly not freshly made. The other dishes were also pretty average. Pity for such an upscale restaurant.

The outside dining experience was very exquisite. Although one person thought it was weird that we had a divider split on the same table for another guest who had a group reservation, we still enjoyed our time. The food was outstanding! the Kennebec fries were addictive! If I had more, I wouldn't stop eating. The Slow-Braised Short Rib was very settling. Service was very timely, and pricing was worth the quality. Definitely coming back again.

Fun, high-energy atmosphere for Sunday brunch. The spicy bloody mary alone will bring me back. My brunch entree was yummy too, but it could have included a little more food for the price. The others in my group received more substantial portions, so maybe it was just my pick. Will try again for sure.

Put us near the back by the bar in a small circle stable. Had 4 guests it did not seat us comfortably.

I also know that wasn’t meant for 4 people because the waitress was also the bartender, so there wasn’t an assigned waiter/waitress like the other dining room tables..

I put a special request note in my open table reservation asking for the server to surprise my dinner companion with a piece of cake and birthday candle for dessert and to my delight our server read the note and did exactly what I requested without my having to discuss it. A wonderful surprise for me and my guest! Thank you to our fantastic server!
