Overall the evening was going great until our last dish (the chicken sliders) were raw. It’s very disappointing to have had this happen as we’ve dined here on our many trips to Las Vegas but would be put off in future now given such a mistake.

It was an unfortunate way to end the evening.

This was our first time dining at Beauty and Essex and was blown away by not only the food, but the service. Our server was Cassidy, who gave us amazing recommendations and the best personality! She was bubbly, attentive and extremely professional! I wish I could give her 10 stars! We will definitely be back and will be sending referrals your way!

We had a group of 15 celebrating a birthday. The staff sat us near each other, but socially distant and no more than 6 to a table. Our server made great suggestions on what/how to order and the food was amazing! We will definitely be going back again.

Where to start... the moment you walk in you are greeted at the door by a Covid Check - temperature is taken and once verified Ok you are welcomed into the "pawn Shop" a tiny store with a hidden secret door. The door to Beauty and Essex!

Once in you realize the detail that was put into this restaurant. Everything from the placement of lighting to the multiple themes spread out throughout the place. Music fills the room, loud enough to enjoy and block out other conversations... but low enough for you to hear your party.

Then comes the food... oh the food! As I always say, food is subjective... but regardless of personal preference you will find something you like here. May I recommend the wonton on tomato soup... I know it sounds crazy, but once you try it you will see why it is one of the favorites.

I do have to say, some of the staff feels.. a little "stuck up". I guess it comes with the territory. You will also find some of the people going there have the same attitude. If you can get over that the rest is just gold.

We absolutely loved the drinks and the food. Everything was spectacular. My only callout was that our server was not very attentive. She took a while to approach our table and she was pretty scarce throughout our dinner. I ordered an Expresso Martini which was $19 on the menu, but she rang it up as $22. When I asked her about this, she said it was due to them being out of the Vanilla Vodka they normally use so they had to use Tito's. Honestly, not sure why the customer would have to pay the difference if it's not our fault that inventory was not on hand. She got a bit of attitude about it but with the guidance of her manager, she adjusted the price to $19.

I will now give Chris Santos his due deference when he makes a criticism on Chopped - he clearly knows how to craft a culinary delight. Every dish and drink we had at Beauty & Essex was delectable. He elevates traditional comfort dishes like tomato soup, pesto pasta, meatballs, donuts - even a salad - to haute cuisine. Every bite was better than the last. Even the cocktails were delicious and inventive. All accompanied by a gorgeous setting, incredible lighting, groovy music and a great wait staff. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

Beauty it's a true Vegas gem. The ambiance & vibe are totally hip & classy. The staff are absolutely amazing. The manager Anthony, mixologist Jan & mixologist Casey are always welcoming, personable, accommodating & attentive. Jan & Casey are skilled at their craft & offer tasty cocktails even while multi-tasking for numerous wait staff & bar table customers. They are always hustling! The food is unique & delicious. The kale & apple salad and tomato soup dumplings are frequent favorites. The beef wellington & Mexican street corn ravioli are becoming fast favorites. Thank you!

We went for drinks and dessert. The server was very sweet but not really attentive. "I get it... we are ordering drinks and dessert but treat us right and we will keep the drinks coming." We ordered two desserts and espresso martinis. The martinis were good but not worth $20 a piece. I've had better. The butterscotch potted cream was tasty but again I've had better desserts for lower prices. The second dessert we ordered was the peanut butter chocolate meltdown which we were really excited for. It was beautifully plated but tasted like something you would buy in a frozen section of the grocery store. The cake was dry and everything else was flavorless. We took one bite and pushed it to the edge of the table. The waitress did not notice until we were well done with everything else and glasses were dry for a hot 10 mins. They took off the uneaten dessert but $60 for a mediocre dessert/ espresso martini and basic service.... ill go elsewhere.

The food was amazing! My mom and I celebrated our birthday and it was great. They gave us cake pops with a little happy birthday on it and it was very nice. However, I noticed the staff was rude and had a little bit of an attitude. It’s a nice restaurant but staff attitude makes a difference on the experience. I don’t care where you work or how nice a restaurant is...if someone is paying roughly about $300 on a meal or more I’d expect a little bit of respect. No complaints on the place just be polite, it makes a difference on if people want to return or not again.

Fun place to go. Cosmo was very poorly made, much different from the chandelier bar, which was amazing! I ordered one sent it back and they fixed it to be passable, then ordered another again came like a glass of vodka, not a cosmo. 😳Food was great! Flavors so good. Service was fair, we expected more.
