In town for a conference and had dinner with a group of 8. The waitress suggested the tasting menu and it was a perfect way for everyone to try a lot of different dishes. More than enough food and it was delicious! The waitress was wonderful and the atmosphere is really fun.

We were expecting a luxury experience, and the decor, food and service lived up to that. It's unfortunate that the continuous VERY LOUD music from Cosmopolitan was inescapable. The constant boom boom boom was not very romantic.

We ordered 2 Marlborough SB.’s. They did not taste like any Sauvignon Blanc and also tasted like bad wine. The waitress was very pleasant the waitress took our order, then our water was filled, manager strolled over with hand in pocket to check us, water was filled, waitress came back, water was filled, next course arrived, waitress checked in, water was filled. This went on constantly.We didn’t order dessert as we were too cold - air con was on full. We were at your restaurant in New York last year and loved it.We always recommend it to anyone travelling to NYC.We couldn’t wait to visit your restaurant in the Cosmopolitan. We were extremely disappointed.

The hostess group of girls were super lame and let like 4 families ahead of my group and I had reservations. I dine in Vegas frequently at various fine dining spots and these hostesses need some SERIOUS work.

I was really excited to try this place out. The food was poor, we had the bacon dumplings with soup and the bbq fries and they were not that great. We didn’t have any drinks and maybe that’s what people go for. The music was a bit too loud and the songs were from 2007. Overall the ambiance was good and the service was great, also the food came out a little too fast. I would probably give it another try maybe for drinks but not for food.

Wife’s parents in town from Europe, first trip to Vegas. The service and food were absolutely perfect. Our waiter (I believe his name was David H) was on point with recommendations and taking care of us in a way that blended into the evening, not overbearing at all.

The food was a perfect mix of shared plates and meals, so much better than tapas or typical ‘family style’ dining. The quality of the food was great, especially liked the grilled cheese/tomato soup and the way it’s presented in a small bite way was quite unique and I’d recommend.

Our favorite though was the Korean fried chicken which had the right mix of sweet and spicy, nice little kick at the end.

The GM was also great, we showed up an hour early and he was apologetic that he couldn’t seat us so we hung out at the bar and were sat exactly at our reservation time.

I come to Vegas a few times every year and this is one of the best experiences I’ve had at a nice restaurant.

What a very fun experience. The Ahi tacos were AH-mazing. The cocktail list made you want to try all of them and the service was impeccable. One thing I have to say...$50 corkage fee was really extreme and ridiculous. They should really bring that fee WAY down because it made them look petty. Other than that, it was a fun and checked that off our list of restaurants to try. On to other restaurants that don't charge such an exorbitant corkage fee.

Beauty & Essex is such a fun, unique way to experience food. You walk through the back door of a pawn shop into a beautifully designed, top-notch foodie heaven! The atmosphere is quiet enough to talk with just a hint of music for ambiance during the 6 o'clock hour. The food was delicious and well plated and the drinks felt customized to our taste. We will be back again!

The food was too rich for my taste, which I guess is a good thing since the portions are so small. They told us the plates are meant to be shared, so why would the portions be odd numbered? Most people there were couples. The service was good, but I was not impressed with the food.

This place is super cute from the outside and sexy on the inside. Don’t be intimidated by the interior. If you’re traveling and don’t don’t have your best clothes, it’s all good! Everyone is welcome. And the staff is incredibly friendly.
We basically tried everything on the menu. I don’t think there is a single thing I would not order again. Drinks were made to perfection. I recommend this place for any occasion.

Had the best time for my first time at Beauty & Essex. My friend and I were celebrating my birthday, and everyone made us feel so welcome and at home. Each dish we had blew my mind. I highly recommend the empanadas and the grilled cheese dumplings. We finished off with the tiramisu sundae and absolutely loved it. Will definitely be returning again for more!
