Direct from New York's Lower East Side and from the team behind Vegas staples TAO Asian Bistro & LAVO Italian Restaurant, Beauty & Essex is an expansive-yet-intimate restaurant, bar, & lounge in the heart of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.


Various rooms for lounging, dining, and discovery unfold across 10,000 square feet, inspired by the Lower East Side's original town-house location. Each room has its own unique elements that celebrate timeless jewelry designs and upscale jewelry stores.


The cuisine is multi-ethnic in inspiration, casually elegant, and designed for sharing at the table among friends and family. Chef Chris Santos' eclectic menu is rooted in a bold bistro direction focusing on the reinvention of modern family style dining that is both whimsical and sophisticated.

Without a doubt, this was an EXCELLENT dining experience. Ian, our waiter, was knowledgeable, friendly, and the timing of his service was outstanding. There were 8 ladies dining and he met all of our expectations with the dishes he suggested. The food was terrific, great presentation and flavors and you are doing yourself a disservice if you do not go to Beauty and Essex while in Las Vegas.

The stake we ordered was served cold, a replacement was quick, less than 10 minutes but since it was the last course of the meal we held of not eating the onion rings. In NYC I eat regularly in your restaurants and they would usually take it back a bring it back together. I was a bit surprised they didn’t even offer it. Ended up not eating it and paying for it. A bit of a disappointment

Fun place! The food was delicious, I liked that they took a lot of every day dishes and gave them a creative twist. The Mexican street corn ravioli was really good! It’s loud but energetic and the decor is super cool. Would go back for sure.

First of all, our server was amazing. She gave such great suggestions and was very attentive. Second, the food was outstanding. Every dish a treat. Great experience all around. Beware however, it's loud!

This is a fun and lively place. The food is very good and plates are meant for sharing, however, the portions are very small. Service was friendly and approachable. I love that they have round tables for larger groups.

This place was great, service was impeccable. Food was delicious, it is family style dining. The noise level is not just loud, it is a bit excessive...there is a DJ in the dining room, we literally had to yell at our server as well as each other! It was fun once but probably won’t be back due to the club-like noise level

2 on a Saturday night. Seated immediately. Drinks were served and appetizers were god which included a kale salad and yellowfish sashimi both were good. Entrees included a pork chop, Thai shrimp and scallops. Really nothing was very good. All too spicy or overcooked or bland. Nikki our server was attentive and interesting. She understood our displeasure and offered to take the the food off the bill and have the manager talk to us. We declined but because of her offer I will try Beauty and Essex again. One of the best parts of Beauty and Essex its intrigue behind the facade of being a pawn shop. Once you cross the threshold into the speakeasy it really is very cool. All the merchandise in the pawn shop is for sale, too. Really neat. I will try it again when I am back in Vegas.

We had a great experience. My wife doesn't eat much so the small, shared plates were perfect. So many other places discourage sharing. We had the French Dip, the bone marrow and the empanadas. All three were outstanding. And if you are looking for a fun dessert to share, look no farther than the unicorn sundae. How can you go wrong with cotton candy and Lucky Charms? And our server, Jessica, was outstanding. We will be returning again.

Favorite restaurant in Vegas hands down. Been coming to Vegas about 2x a year for the last 15 years and this is my new favorite restaurant. The food was unreal. We had the salmon rice cakes, tuna tacos, GRILLED CHEESE DUMPLINGS (my favorite, short rib toast, salmon, and the donuts. Wow. Everything is shareable. Great date night spot. Waitress was so down to earth and helpful. Food came out fast. I wanted to keep ordering more cause it was so good. Love the vibe in there. Dim lit and not too noisy. It’s just unreal. I will definitely be back here my next trip. Highly recommend

Wonderful restaurant with a great atmosphere. Server was exceptional and I appreciate how me made sure we did not order to much food because of the portion size. He was spot on and we were completely satisfied with our menu selections. Lastly, we love how this gorgeous restaurant was nestled behind the Pawn Shop. This gave it a mystic that you would not expect when entering the pawn shop. Will definitely be back!!!!

We booked this place to make sure we had somewhere to eat on a busy night we arrived in Las Vegas. The reviews suggested it was pretty ordinary but we were very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was great, food was excellent and the service was good by American standards. My young adult children who have eaten all over the world said “ Good find Mum!”.

Great food but the inability for our server to bring us only 2 drinks in 2 1/2 hours (the second was when we got the check) was unacceptable.
