Everything was good, but it would have been nice to be offered a piece of bread or a cracker with the salad. The table we were at was too wide and we could not easily converse because the restaurant was noisy.

First visit to Beatrix. There were several items on the menu that I wanted to try, so I will be going back. Loved the brussel sprouts and the chicken kebabs!

Why do they give the worst tables to two women dining together? It was a week night, I had reservations and when they took us to the crappy little table, I politely asked if we could get a larger table that was not next to the server station. No, the larger tables for 4 were reserved for 4 people.....hmmmm, when we left, there were at least 2 tables for four with only two people (male & female couples). What gives? Not very nice Beatrix

June 8th @6:30pm, arrived early seated immediately. Friendly front staff, restaurant was empty. Modern decor, Relaxing atmosphere. Good food (Braised Short Rib & Ravioli), our waitress Magna was most attentive. Enjoyable dining experience.

The server was polite and attentive when taking and delivering our drink order, but wasn't seen after taking our entree order. My special request was not fulfilled for my entree and I had to flag down a server to send it back, but our actual server re-delivered my entree on a new plate but still covered in sauce. Asked for a manager but they never came to the table and had to ask another server to tell our server we needed the check. We were still charged for the incorrect entree which wasn't touched. Inattentive service ruined our birthday celebration.

We went for breakfast and although the inside is super amazing, we chose to eat outside because it was a beautiful sunny day. We finished up and then went inside because the ambience is so great! Can’t wait to go back and try for dinner, or stop in to the coffee bar some day

Perhaps my group was of the wrong generation to totally enjoy the restaurant. It is geared toward patrons under the age of 25 that only eat grain based goods. If you enjoy not hearing what anyone at your table is saying - this is the place for you. Have to mention Beatrix has the #1 uncomfortable chairs ever sat on in a restaurant. Do recommend the pot roast sandwich and the prime burger which is beef.

It was a fun experience. I like the fact that the portions were normal rather than the king size everyone else seems to serve. The music was a bit loud and the noise level high but it was still very nice.

Overall great experience, once again. Very limited wine list. Many interesting culinary choices would be well paired with more wine selection.

In addition, wine needs to be stored in a proper temperature controlled environment. We were presented with our selection of Shafer Cabernet. The bottle was actually above room temperature. ~55 degrees is proper for wine of this caliber. Please correct this, poste haste...

While our food was super tasty, the service was mediocre. Our server (very friendly!) had too many tables and couldn’t focus on taking care of who she had. I’ll go again, but probably not for a while.

I love the menu at Beatrix. The variety of what I consider healthy choices such as salads and fish items is great. Don’t worry, though. They have burgers too! I like the juices, the varieties of coffee shop drinks and of course the yummy pastries.
I had brunch at the location by Northwestern last fall. I am happy that there is now a location in Oak Brook. Closer to home for me.
I’ve been twice in the last week. The service this last time was a little slow and she was hard to find. My friends matcha latte took forever, but the first time I was at this location, the service was great. Luck of the draw, I guess.

We loved it! I met a friend for dinner and we had a great evening. We shared the Cauliflower salad, Neatloaf and an angel food muffin. The only thing I'd suggest to the management is to serve the macaroon dessert before 9 pm!

A new restaurant and it has some issues to work out. was on the brunch menu as it's a holiday: not very expansive. out of the drink on the menu I requested, and out of the dessert we ordered. some strange construction problem and I was watching water pour in from the ceiling.
Layout looks great though: hope they will get it right.
