    This night was the last out in New York that I would spend with colleagues and Beatstro was absolutely the best b place we could have went! EVERYONE was very accommodating to our large party! The service was amazing and the wait time for food and drinks was minimal. Let’s talk about the food! I’m from the soul and can say this lounge really goes above and beyond quality in their food! Many of us ordered almost everything and it was all amazing! I just want to thank Beatstro for making my last night the absolute best!

    I come to Brunch and love it here! I bought my Mom for her first experience for Mother’s Day after 6pm and it’s totally different. I thought the DJ would be in the building and the vibe would be the same. It was total opposite. The food took entirely long, I ordered the bottomless Sangria and only had 2 glasses it wasn’t how the waitress comes around at brunch just keeping them coming. My mom said it was ok nothing to brag about and I wanted her to enjoy her day to the fullest however that wasn’t fulfilled. The manager came over to our table a few times to check in and gave us a discount due to the inconvenience. The security guard had me laughing throughout the night which was the highlight other than that it wasn’t what I expected. I wouldn’t recommend or will I come back after 6pm. Sorry not sorry

    The food was great, a little disappointed that there were some things still on the menu that are no longer served but the stuff we did order was really good. We went on Saturday for brunch at around 1130. It was not busy or too loud, I think Sundays are busier brunch days. There was only one waitress at the time and about 4-5 tables so it took a little longer to get our orders in and drinks. We got the bottomless brunch and ordered the sangria. Let me tell you!!! Those sangrias were great!! Very strong and super tasty! worth every penny. Our table of 3 went through two pitchers and the tapped out that's how good the sangria was! I would definitely recommend try this spot out.

    Drinks little pricey and doesn’t pack a lot of punch for the prices … other than that great experience… was pretty empty when I went so the dj was slacking. I understand it wasn’t a packed house but we went for the music experience hence the whole point of the establishment so expectations weren’t meet with that aspect.

    Went for Saturday brunch. If you follow on Instagram you'd think there would be a full & rambunctious crowd. Apparently that only happens for Sunday brunch, which was a nice surprise. The place itself is really cool, decorated with so much music history. The chef obviously takes pride in his dishes, from the deviled eggs to the locrio (Spanish the on bimbimpop); everything was delicious! Bravo, Chef Harold! The bomb Sangria, which is part of the 90 minute unlimited brunch, is totally worth it. If you plan to drink this, leave the car at home! I cannot wait to go back & try more items on the menu. Side note: I grew up in this neighborhood & I am blown away by the amazing changes that have & continue to happen to the area. It's so nice to see people bring such diverse businesses to what was once a dilapidated area.

    I had brunch with some friends. We paid for the unlimited drinks for 90 minutes. Refills were slow initially. We had to ask for pitchers to be placed at the table. Luckily we were accommodated. At other places I have had brunch, the refills are more frequent. Different places, different ways. It's cool. The food though...so good. I'm not sure if the man that brought us our food was the cook, but everything was fresh. Flavorful, nothing over cooked, no complaints. I had a starter kale salad (highly recommend) and I couldn't finish it. The cook had asked if it could have been made better, and I appreciated the question. It means they take pride in their food. The amount for me was a lot. Otherwise it was great. The main reason I give them a three is because my table was kind of rushed out. We were asked if we wanted anything else, and then were presented with the bill. After we ordered dessert we were told the table was needed 5 minutes before they actually needed the table. We weren't told that there was a time limit at the table. They then said we could finish out drinks at the bar. Some good and some not so good. It's def a vibe, food on point and fresh, and music quiet enough to hear conversations with friends.

    Beastro is definitely worth the hype. The food is delicious, the small space is nicely decorated as an ode to Hip Hop. Our server was very attentive. The staff did forget one item that was ordered and brought out the wrong dish when reminded. However, they were gracious about it and corrected the error. I definitely want to go back to try so many things on their menu. The pork riblets, piñon de maduro, yuca fries, and bacon mac & cheese hit in the best way!

    The whole restaurant was awesome; my only dislike was my friend and I were there for the whole brunch experience. We got there at 3:45 and were only able to get appetizers because our waiter never notified us that the kitchen closed. Therefore we never got the main meal, the unlimited Sangria or the dessert. We enjoyed the vibe and ended staying to order dinner that began at 6:00. Only to get burgers; because we really had our hearts set on the brunch.

    The fried chicken & lobster mac n cheese were great. The regular mac n cheese was bland. We didn’t appreciate the server adding an 18% gratuity on our small table of 3 people. I would’ve tipped more had she not been presumptuous

    The drinks, the service, and the ambience were great but the food was not. The food was salty and did not have much flavor to it...primarily the chicken. The burger and fries were dry and again, lacked flavor. Place has good potential to be great but the food definitely needs an upgrade.

    Beatstro is an ABSOLUTE MUST for a Saturday brunch. Once you past the curtain, you are ushered into HIP HOP happiness. Beautifully & tastefully decorated. The sweetest hostest ever greets and seats you. Elizabeth is the best waitress ever. The sangria and nutshell set the tone. I've had deviled eggs before but I swear these are THE BEST EVER!!! JOSEFINA is a fried ball filled with succulent pork and rice and beans. Delicious 😋 Shrimp and grits with an out of this world sauce. And the fried chicken? Wow!! My steak and eggs......with the chimichuura.....scrumptous!!! And I still had room for dessert....try the banana pudding and red velvet cheesecake. I enjoyed everything!!!!! And they played the greatest hits possible. Great time all around. Can't wait to return. Do yourself a favor and meet me at BEATSTRO.
