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.

Entering through an elaborate pawnshop into an almost 1920's era bar, you completely forget about any troubles the day has presented you. The Green with Envy cocktail is tremendous, and so is everything else that follows. Plan on sharing many plates, as they are small, but delectable. Will go back any time we are in Vegas.

I found this hidden Gem in the Cosmopolitan while on a business trip. The experience was absolutely wonderful. Great food and service. I will always eat here whenever I’m in Vegas.

Waiter was extremely rough and rude with us throughout the entire meal from the moment we sat to the time we left the restaurant.

Hands down an excellent restaurant. From the moment I walked in I was approached with a friendly face. The waitress was excellent as well. Walked me through the whole menu and provided an excellent drink choice . The food was AMAZING as well. I had the steak, salmon and deep fried shrimp with the broccolini which was shared between the three of us. We also received a stamp to go to their night club downstairs.

Overall experience was great. We did have to wait about 30 minutes for our table even though we had a reservation, but the bar area is really cool so we did not mind. Food is delicious, as are the drinks and the wait staff was terrific. Love the ambiance there, will definitely be back!

We had reservations for 4 and waited over 30 minutes for our table to be ready. (The restaurant did offer us one free round of drinks for our wait, and without us asking for any type of compensation.)
Based on the hype, and because it’s Vegas, we expected this to be a somewhat unique dining experience. It was essentially an extremely loud night club type of setting with tables and food. There was nothing spectacular about the food presentation as well. All four of us, plus 2 friends who stopped by our table were al underwhelmed by this restaurant.

I wish they had a few more entree's on the menu, I ordered the pasta and wasn't crazy about it. They had a $50 corkage fee per bottle for the wine we brought in. That is outrageous and by far the highest I have ever heard of, even for Vegas. The highest fee I have paid prior to this was a $30 corkage fee. It's a cool restaurant, but honestly the food was just okay and because of the extremely high corkage fee we will probably go somewhere else when we return to Vegas.

Staff was awesome, I’ve been to this restaurant a few times and this was for sure not the same food. Everything came out at once for appetizers, typically they stage them and it’s an “experience”... my pork chop was entirely fat, cooked a bit over. It seems like a different place than last time i went...

Awesome food. Empanadas are killer. A little too noisy but that’s a preference thing.

One of our favorite restaurants - both here in Las Vegas and in New York. Food is delicious, cocktails are inventive, and wait staff is very attentive. Love the tapas style service in which dishes come out as they are ready.

I love Beauty & essex and always visit every time I am in Vegas. The food and atmosphere is great and the Restaurant decore is quirky and opulent.
I have also been to the New york branch and love that one too.
The ambience is slightly too dark for me though and always makes me sleepy but I will continue to go back.

Hands down always one of my favorite places to go in Vegas! My fiancé always come here when we are in town. We always look forward to it and the experience never disappoints! From the food to the service it’s amazing and I tell everyone they need to go if they are looking for a nice place to eat and enjoy delicious food!

Too loud - works if you just want to drink and eat and don’t want to have a conversation otherwise tries way too much like a nightclub. Food is great, but over-prices considering small portions. Service is good except hostesses are not welcoming (have attitudes as if you are bothering them wanting them to do their actual job). Biggest dissatisfaction is that the menu online was not noted as being seasonal or subject to change so the night we went, menu was unfortunately very different. Will go elsewhere next time.

This is our 3rd the time here and we loved it the first 2 times but this time the food wasn’t as good. The meat came out undercooked and so quick I can’t be sure it was even made to order

We had the most wonderful experience for my sister in-laws 50th Birthday! The food was amazing, atmosphere wonderful.....but what really made it special was our waiter Ian! I have no words for the outstanding service he provided. I will now never dine again without Ian:)
He made the celebration such a wonderful experience and we had the best time EVER! Thanks Ian!!!!

I hosted my clients there during a conference we were attending in Vegas...and let me begin to say that if you want to impress, this is where to go!
Incredible service and food. The bone Marrow dish is amazing! It was the talk of the table and everyone devoured it.
Everything from drinks to food...perfect! Kudos to the chef and the team out there.
I go to the NY one all the time...this was just as good...if not better :-)
