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.

Great treat to enter through the Pawn Shop (cool items) and then into a door that leads you into a cool world. Great ambiance. Loved the decor. The food was delicious! A must do when in Vegas.

Seafood platter ordered... seafood was not fresh old and sewage tasting. When I had told the waiter he was not apologetic and acted like we had inconvenienced him

We loved everything about this restaurant! The food. The drinks. The scene. The waiter! Ian was fantastic. We told him what we were thinking for food, and he paired the plates perfectly. We trusted him to pick our bottle of wine based on what we like and he nailed it. It was a perfect evening.

Excellent food and service Everything is tapas. Costly as are many things in Vegas. But really cute theme (a speakeasy) and I wouldn’t hesitate to go again.

Great food. Everything was something new that we never tried before and even if we didn’t think it was going to be good we try it anyway and everything was so amazing. Nice with the small plates great for trying several dishes

Service and atmosphere was amazing! The music was great, they played the best r&b old school hits. The taste of the food was great but the value of the food didn’t fit the portion size.

Food and service were excellent. We enjoyed the shared plate concept, enabling us to try several different dishes. The space is a little crowded, especially for parties of 2. A pretty small table and very close to the adjoining tables. Overall, very nice experience, we look forward to returning to try some of the other dishes.

Our server Ian and the runners assisting him were Wonderful! He took the time to explain table style service and our dinner was perfectly balanced with amazing flavors and texture. My second time here in LV location and brought 8 friends who were equally impressed! I am from New York and will be sure to visit the LES locale!

Great atmosphere and great service. The only downside food is rushed out so you are done eating very quickly. The bill is also presented as soon as you have finished which is a shame as you do not get the saviour the moment.

The atmosphere, food, specialty drinks and our server were great. As a local, this is my 3rd time bringing a group.

As there were 8 of us, one couple arrived early and almost left as the hostesses were extremely rude. Not a good first impression and no need to be rude. It tainted the night for everyone!

Another fantastic experience at B&E. I’ve enjoyed the NYC location many times and The Las Vegas Restaurant definitely did not disappoint. Start with a Pink Panther and the empanadas. The tuna poke tacos are a must and of course the “Grilled Cheese” wontons.
Enjoy!!

This place has the most delectable food and I can't emphasize this point enough! We had an amazing experience and I will recommend this to everyone I know going to Vegas. Particularly, we tried the Roasted Bone Marrow, Tempura Calamari, 'Chile Relleno' Empanadas & the Mexican Street Corn Ravioli. They also had a vegan menu for my friend which was much appreciated. We visited on my birthday weekend and their birthday cake pops treat was amazing as well. Thank you so much!

Dining at Beauty and Essex was the highlight of the weekend for me and my six girlfriends. The food was phenomenal! Our server was smart, funny, and made great menu recommendations. The ambiance was upscale yet energetic. We all agreed we will go back!

The food here is amazing. Perfect date place. All of the food is family style so plan to share (almost feels like tapas)

Celebrated a birthday here and decided to come based on rave reviews online. I was not disappointed. The food was amazing , free champagne for ladies while you wait for your table, and the most beautiful decor. Service was great and I felt like royalty while being wined and dined by family and friends! Order the Mexican street corn ravioli and then order more for dessert!

Restaurant is very very very loud.

Very difficult to have a conversation.

Very pricey when considering the experience.

Several very good menu items.

Several very average menu items

Wonderful atmosphere. On the pricy side, but it is an experience worth the expense. Great birthday dinner with the family (all adults) it is not a place for kids.

Absolutely loved Beauty & Essex, this was my second time dining here and my mom's first. We tried a bunch of different dishes and we were pleased with every single one. My favorite was of course the grilled cheese soup dumplings and my mom's favorite was probably the chicken tikka masala flatbread. For three of us, the bill was surprisingly less than I expected (under $150) and the service was fantastic. Would highly recommend for a "fancy" night out, perfect setting for any vibe.

The food was amazing, our waitress recommended the corn ravioli and the tomato soup/ grilled cheese bite appetizer and they were both wonderful! The ambiance was fun and it was a great way to spend a birthday!

Too loud to enjoy a meal. It’s like being in a club. You have to repeat yourself a few times so that your rude waiter can hear you.

Food was good, but concept of menu was not explained fully resulting in being charged for multiple dishes, despite it being explained in a completely different way.

All meals are a sharing meal experience and were were told as 7 people each would have enough for 7. Not at any point was it explained this would result in multiple plates of the same dish being charged.

Extremely disappointing

The food is served family style, so Beauty & Essex is best experienced by groups. In my opinion 4-6 people is the perfect group size to get the most out of your experience. The food is delicious and the service (Candace was our server) is unparalleled! Highly recommend the Tomahawk Steak and the macaroni & cheese—seriously, the mac & cheese is SO good and worth ordering. Skip the wasabi crusted salmon—it sounds great, but there are so many better things to try, like the amazing scallops or the pork chop. We ended our meal with the chocolate & peanut butter cake that was a show stopper. It was so yum, and it was topped with glitter. It was so Vegas!
