Beauty & Essex - Los Angeles
Book your next event with us
Loved my experience here. Made reservations for a last minute dinner at 8pm on a Saturday night. My bestie and I arrived and we were seated right away. The staff was so lovely and we had two servers. The manager came out to apologize that our food was taking a little longer and brought us a dish on the house. Just a lovely experience all around.
We knew about Beauty & Essex from NY. Decided yo try this one in LA. So happy we did. Everything was excellent! Food delicious, service great, atmosphere electrifying!
GNO....so we ordered and drank A LOT. Apps were great but very small portions. Also salmon tasted a bit funny to my friend but they swapped it out for the Thai shrimp and she absolutely loved it! One of my girlfriend and I had the filet and it was phenomenal! My other friend had the ribeye which was also amazing! If you go, definitely do the steak! Seasoned and Cooked to perfection! Great ambiance/vibe. Super trendy. I’ve recommended several clients for dinner and they all came back thanking me for the reco!
It was a birthday celebration for our son and it was terrific!
Awesome place with great ambiance. Definitely boujie ans upscale. Classy and trendy - recommended for special occasions, date night or fancy girls night. Great food and location.
Food and drink mediocre compared to high prices . Service was great however .
Every dish is so delicious and artfully prepared. I love tapas where I can try a little of everything. Service was impeccable too. Love Vegas and LA location - now I’ve been to both! - Erica (The Beautiful Next)
The dining room is absolutely beautiful (think the inside of a music box) . The service is exceptional and the food was delicious. The entire dining experience was memorable for all the right reason. Thank you!
Great food, and great service!
Excellent ambiance, food and service. Staff was very attentive and the food was very good but we had reservations at 6:30 and they said we'd have to wait so they sent us to the bar. We ordered 2 margaritas and they charged $42 for both! That was just too expensive for 2 drinks! Beautiful place though!
Beautiful place, great food, great drinks and my servers were extremely nice. It’s officially My new spot
Beautifully elegant yet modern, i ordered the lamb chops, they were delicious. Must go!!!
This restaurant is very sexy. The lights are dim and the ceilings go on forever. It has a swanky Vegas vibe. The food is pretty good but not great. It’s all the about the ambiance and location.
One of the best date night restaurants in Los Angeles with extremely sexy food and drinks and delish too.
30 minutes of waiting for our table killed the vibe and made us late to another party. Food and service are really good tho. Small portions but delicious. Apparently B&E is super noisy and not suitable for discussions over the dinner.
Absolutely outstanding from top to bottom. Our server Alexis was nothing short of spectacular. Arguably one of the best meals I’ve ever had. I’ve been to the B&E in Vegas and this location did not disappoint. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
Love the Beauty & Essex before going to a Pantages production. The menu is eclectic and has many pescatarian/vegetarian options for our dietary needs. So much fun to order a variety of the small plates and share. The empanadas, crudo, mushrooms are all exceptional! Interesting cocktails as well. Servers are very attentive. Definitely a great restaurant no to be missed!
Had a reservation for 10:30 but wasn’t sat until 11:15. They gave us a complimentary round of drinks which made up for that. Our server Jordan talked a good game. Did a great job giving us suggestions and all until he disappeared. We waited over 30 minutes for him to come take our order, he didn’t even bring us water. We had to flag a busser down to get him for us. The food was okay, made up a bit for everything else that was wrong. Overall I would go back but definitely at a different time of the evening.
Been there to celebrate a birthday. It was nice, the ambience is amazing. Although, we ordered 2 different wines and they had rub out of both. Had to choose a 3rd one. The girl taking care of our table was apathic.
The staff is what made the experience, super friendly and accommodating. We arrived later than the grace period but they still held our table. Our server was great, explained everything to us being that is was our first time there. Ambience was great, decor was great. The food was good but not great, I enjoyed the appetizers better than the main dishes. We were told that we had to release our table at a certain time but it was a party of 4 so not that big of a deal.
Good tapas experience
My first experience was years ago and I absolutely loved it. This time the script was completely flipped and I left with a bad taste in my mouth. The hostess sat us in the pearl room/bar. I asked to be moved and was met with, “but the DJ is right here!” Uh... I was there for dinner and ambiance, not a DJ and a din of noise. Next, the food was lack luster. Everything had a ton of pepper- from the broccolini to the crust on my filet. The noise level was absurd and eventually pushed us out the door before we could even consider desert. What was supposed to be a classy night out quickly turned to a dining experience that grated our nerves. So much for a pleasant birthday dinner on vacation...
The food was delicious....... the service was horrible.n they kept trying to rush us. They put the dessert menu on the table and reminded us it was there when we were not even halfway through our dinber.
The busboy came and tried to clear our plates while we were still eating. All in all, not a v. Good experienxe.
This place is good if you’re not picky about the servers and hostesses having their s*** together. I made a reservation 3 weeks in advance and requested outside seating, when I arrived to the restaurant at the time of my reservation they gave us a buzzer and told us we would have to wait for a table. Which would’ve been fine if they actually gave us the table outside that was requested. So we went upstairs and grabbed a drink and then our buzzer rang so we were seated inside without the drinks we ordered and were told they would be brought to us. We told the hostess that we requested and outside table and she informed us there was nothing available and wouldn’t be for a while. We insisted on sitting outside as we were here for my 30th birthday and it was a beautiful night and also, I reserved this table 3 weeks in advance. We were given another buzzer and waited at the bar for another hour before we were seated outside. Our drinks that we ordered before our initial seating were brought to us about 30 minuets after we were told we would have to wait again for the outside table. So pretty much they can’t guarantee you’ll get a table for the area you requested and you’ll still have to wait regardless of making a reservation. The food was pretty good, and the server we had at our table outside was phenomenal. He was busy with other large groups and stayed on top of it. The server we had when we were seated inside asked me my drink order 3 times and forgot what it was so the bartender had to ask again, this drink was paid for before we ever sat down. All in all I would probably come back here but not for a special occasion.
It was my birthday and first time there. Everything was amazing.
Excellent in every way, high quality innovative food great vibe and really attentive service 10/10 would recommend
Amazing food. Very dark and extremely loud. Seems to cater to large groups. Would not recommend for business but would recommend for less engaged larger occasions.
Location is a bit cavernous. Not sure the menu suits share plates.
Very good experience!! Amazing food and good service. I will definitely come back
We had a wonderful time. We were there with clients so we wanted to go somewhere special. One of them has celiac disease so it was great that they have a whole menu with just gluten free options. Everything was really delicious it was nice that it was shareable’s and we left there very full and happy. The venue and decor is beautiful and would be back again.
It was wonderful. You walk through a little store and then through the door which leads to the beautiful restaurant. The server was terrific and so was the rest of the staff. They are very attentive and yet you don't even know they are around...and yet they are always there when you need something. They serve all of the food family style. But the dishes are elegant and well thought out. It's not like sitting down at a casual place and sharing food. Beautiful plating and just the right size portions.
All the food is delicious except the pasta😂 service and ambience are excellent！
Amazing! Loved it!
Great food and beautiful restaurant!
Was a great experience! Great service and nice people! Thank you
I had no idea they seat you in increments.... They should say that somewhere… Or let you know when you make the reservation. It felt so rushed and I just think that’s ridiculous when you’re at a place that is so expensive. I will never go there again.
We went there with my dear friend for the first time for his birthday celebration. We liked the place, service, and most importantly food. We both got the lamb chops and for the sides we shared broccoli mac & cheese and crispy shrimps! The chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream was bomb!
Will recommend my friends to go there for sure !
