Book your next event with us
Need to book at 10:30 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Food and service very good. Eclectic group of people dining and at bar.
Loved the experience. Chef Sean is outstanding. I'll have to go again.
Excellent service. Food is really good. Might be a tad overpriced. Would definitely go back
Our wait staff was great! Wish I could remember her name. Really load for us "old" folks but we had a great time visiting after we saw Simon & Garfunkel @ the Pantages.
Beautiful setting with very good service & diverse menu. Will definitely be back!
Overall is good. Specially atmosphere! Beautiful interior and exterior. We order oysters and some appetizers were delicious. I’ll come again.
Love this place!!!!
I Love Beauty and Essex. The Ambiance is beautiful and the food and drinks are great!!!
This place is hyped by snobby LA people. It’s alright! The concept is pretty cool. If you’re looking for an experience but don’t care for amazing food then this is the spot. If you want food that will transport you to another world then don’t waste your time here. There are many options in Los Ángeles with exceptional gastronomy. I don’t have picture because they weren’t worth me taking any.
Any Tao experience is amazing and this was perfect! From the moment walking in, the experience starts with the personable hosts, on point servers and the food was great. We can't wait to go back again!
The staff at Beauty and Essex is top notch. The ambience is cool, yet romantic. They have a great vegan menu, and everything I've ever eaten there is fantastic.
The most incredible meal and service. We ordered two dozen oysters. Seriously the best meal I've had in a loooong time. Thai Shrimp was also exceptional; from presentation, price and taste. Cant wait to come back !!
This is a one of a kind restaurant in Los Angeles. The music and drinks are good, the food is ok, but the overall ambiance is delightful.
This is my new favorite place. The food was great, and the drinks were even better. Perfect for a date or just dinner with friends.
As always. The food was delicious and the service was stellar.
The novel entrance is not the best thing at B & E. It is the food. Super enjoyable with a novel and fun entrance. Interior is very nice as well and the service was outstanding!! Now on to the good- sorry o don't have time to look up the menu. Really loved the shrimp, corn ravioli and grilled cheese soup bits. Super good bourbon (and maple) cocktail as well.
As usual a great experience. Everything on the menu is delicious!
Was there for a private event upstairs after dinner and enjoy a dinner prior to going upstairs.
Food was pretty great but the server was uninterested and didn’t try very hard. Had to wait 35 mins to be seated. Bill came to over $300 for three people which is pretty ridiculous. Wouldn’t rush back
Trey was FAB! We loved him!
arrived for a 6:00 res but doors didnt open until 6:05 or so. Amazing meal, out in time for 8:00 show at Pantages. Did dine LA and the big surprise was how great the chicken was - incredibly moist and flavorful.
The restaurant itself is a hidden beauty. The service is amazing, Brayan was really nice and helpful with any questions we had he described each dish with tremendous detail. Making mouth water Everytime. The food mouthwatering, we had a great time thank you so much looking forward to seeing those dumplings again soon
We went while on vacation and got to experience Dine LA. Our food was incredible and we got to take a lot home with us. The service was friendly and fun in a very beautiful setting.
We ordered off the Dine LA menu, therefore pretty good value for the amount of food we had. We really liked our starters, tuna tacos for me and french dip w/o horseradish aioli for my partner who is very sensitive to hot-spicy flavors, and desserts of chocolate pot de creme and NYC doughnuts. I enjoyed my side of broccolini, however my partner's short rib mac had a hot-spiciness not mentioned on the menu. We both had the salmon, which we found lacking, a bit over cooked and the flavors didn't seem to work together. Wait staff was attentive and asked if we were needing to make a show time. The dining room is pretty dim and the music was just on the verge of being too loud.
Service by hostess and waiters were very bad. Plates were taken without asking and felt rushed the entire time. The manager was very nice and accommodating to the situation.
Nice welcoming and good service throughout the entire dinner . Fantastic food and nice ambiance . Music and general noise level on the high side .
We love, love, love B&E. Sadly, there’s just no way for us to get up there easily and it takes well over an hour for 16 miles. We won’t be back for a long while, but it has nothing to do with the establishment! The valet is crazy expensive, but I’m sure that’s just the norm in We Ho. There is supposed to be a dress code and although it doesn’t appear to enforced at all, we do make it a point to “dress for dinner” when we go. It’s fun!
We went to Beauty & Essex for my friend’s 30th birthday celebration and my friends and I were very pleased with the restaurant. The ambiance is beautiful and the service was excellent! My glass of water was never empty! As soon as I would finish my water, someone would fill it up right away! I was so thirsty that day that I was very pleased on how attentive the staff was. Our server John was very informative and energetic while attending our table and the food was delicious! John informed us from the very beginning that everything on the menu is designed to be shareable and I was glad he did because we were all able to order something different and got to try different foods. Everything we tried was delicious and to my expectation. I especially enjoyed the Mexican Corn Ravioli and Grilled Cheese, smoked bacon, tomato soup dumplings. I was glad that when I made my reservation there was an occasion option because I didn’t have to let the server know it was my friend’s birthday and she was surprised when the server showed up with cake and ice cream. We were overall pleased with our experience at Beauty & Essex.
Really nice place - food was great!! A nice place to take a date...
Waiter was amazing mad, he did a great job making sure we were happy and taken care of.
Amazing food with attentive servers. Couldn’t ask for better
We couldn't have been a more difficult party for Beauty and Essex. Larger group than they would normally want, arriving in staggered intervals instead of all at once. But, they totally adapted to our needs, set up a perfect seating arrangement for us, which allowed our group, which grew to 15 throughout the evening to have an absolutely fabulous time. Our waiter was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. The food was varied and interesting, and tasty to boot. And then, to top things off, they brought out their Ferris Wheel of dessert. What a show! Don't miss out on this fabulous place. An artistically elegant place for a very nice evening, or if your group is more lively, like ours, a great place to just have fun. Well done Beauty & Essex! We will be back!
Very overpriced for the type of food you get. If I want to spend that much I would rather go to restaurants in Beverly Hills not there.
It was DineLA, but their fixed menu didn’t excite us so we ordered a la carte.
The Pear Bibb Salad was light but nothing to write home about.
The buratta was about the same.
We had the Lamb with charred broccolini for our main. Both were excellent however we just felt like the overall price point was a little high for the quality of the food and portions.
We have no problem spending a few hundred on an exceptional meal. This just didn’t quite make the mark.
Lots of incredible restaurants in LA that do!
Fantastisch restaurant, leuke jonge ambiance, en goede service en ontvangst
Had a great time here for dine la for my birthday! Food was exceptional! Service was very attentive! Sat upstairs in the locket room and it was more quiet compared to the main dining room. Womens restroom has a bartender that gives free champagne!
Closed too early but great food and ambience leading up to it.
The food was excellent and very creative. We enjoyed the service which was very timely. The restaurant is fun but very loud so don’t expect to have a quiet conversation
I love this place! One of my favorites in L.A.. The food is spectacular!
I highly recommend skipping this place. I’ve gone several times for three years, but their quality keeps getting worse ever since their management has changed. TAO is better food and service overall. Recommend that or Catch. If you must go, I recommend the kale and apple salad!
