Beauty & Essex - Los Angeles
Just a wonderful experience. Spent close to $400 for two but it was worth it
Took my wife for her birthday as a last hurrah before self quarantining in earnest and could not have been happier. Food and staff were tremendous and when a situation arose with a customer at the table next to us who was being belligerent for reasons that, two days later, no one in our party understands, management and security were incredibly supportive and accommodating. We can't wait to return in the future.
Grilled cheese dumplings were amazing! Charred broccoli also delish, and I highly recommend the scallops!
beautiful look. loved the music. great for girls night out.
Loved the food! Everything was so incredibly tasty....can’t wait to go back!
Every time we enjoy a meal at Beauty & Essex we are overwhelmed with the service and food. It is always AMAZING!
Food and drinks were great. Service was great as well but only thing that was a little annoying was when people would constantly come around asking to remove our plates when there was still a good amount of food on it. At one point, we were asked a 4th time so just allowed them to take it away out of not wanting to be asked about it again. Other than that, the rest of our experience was good.
Great tuna tacos
Fastest service I’ve ever experienced! Everything was see less from start to finish. Great food! Definitely going back!
People were nice, food was good. Great music, great service.
I absolutely love this place. I will be back again.
First we had to wait 45 minutes to be seated and we finally got our tables. Our server was very short and kept leaving the table as we were trying to order! The food was good but I don't think we would go back there.
the music was too loud as well.
Very nice and good food. A bit overpriced however
There are many vegetarian options and the staff pay close attention to allergy so you can enjoy the evening. We had 2 different allergy on our table and they ensured everyone was eating safe. Please don't bring your kids there! Let the rest of us enjoy the night out.
This place had great food !
Great dining experience for those who love a bit of ambiance with a touch of glamour and sophistication. The lowly lit first floor dining room is always exciting to dine in and then you're reminded that the food is just as spectacular. Starting with the healthy kale and apple salad followed with a series of entrees to share withe the table, like the dumplings, and finishing off with the decadent donuts (with the memorable chocolate sauce) and chocolate layer cake, it's a meal that is as artful as its surroundings. Our guests from NYC loved it and were pleasantly surprised that this part of town had this to offer.
Alexis was fantastic, very funny and charming. the hostesses michelle and desi were funny hyping up my date and I. amazing experience
Great place to have dinner ! Food and drinks are great ! Also the music !
Except for the early parking issue everything was nice . !
I'll be back to try more items. It's a cute place where you can meet for a late bite or meet friends for drinks before heading to the surrounding clubs.
Everything was great until I saw the check $500... damn I went broke hahaha... but food was good
Lovely, bucket list experience! Delicious food and fantastic service! (A little dark to read the menu, but the light on my phone fixed that right up :)! I hope to be back!
I had an amazing time. Our server (Nick) was amazing and very knowledgeable of the menu. We tried all the items he recommended and he did not disappoint. The food was delicious and Nick's service really tied the entire experience together for us. We were celebrating a birthday, it was our first time there, but we'll definitely be back. We had the Chile Relleno' Empanadas, Thai style shrimp, Bacon & Tomato Soup Dumplings, Scallops, tuna poke wonton tacos and the donuts for dessert. EVERYTHING was great. We went on a Wednesday night so it wasn't busy. Not too loud inside so conversations can definitely be had comfortably.
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.
