We had a 7:45 reservation and had to wait outside in the cold until 8:15 to be seated. After dinner, the valet took 25 minutes to bring our car around. It was a chilly evening and my girlfriend was not pleased.
Such a beautiful restaurant! The entrance of the restaurant is in an alley next to Tao! It was our first time there so weren’t sure
Food was cold and tuff
Amazing service! Great staff, amazing food beautiful atmosphere, a most go when visiting LA.
It wasn’t bad, but I thought the food was ok, I know our server did a great job under the circumstances
Corn ravioli was my favorite dish and reason to go back. Waiter and general manager were really nice. Awesome music and decor.
Every time I go here, I'm blown away by how great the food is. Obviously, the ambience is second to none, but the food is out of this world. The service (as usual) was impeccable.
I like the vibes. Food delicious.
We had a good time with my friends. Great pictures. They just let us know that we had to leave after 2 hours. We asked for more time and they gave us 20 min more.
If your looking for a place that can be magical to look at, music to bump your head with and amazing service, This is the place! We had girls night here and the food and drinks were great & flavorful. I personally am always looking for unique plates - I recommend the Corn Ravioli! its like corn in a cup but in pasta and the flavor is balanced and not overwhelming.
Great ambience and music... nice size crowd despite Covid. Great place for date night or a girls night out.
Really disappointing evening. We have been here several times before and had a great time which is why I booked again this evening.
We booked a table several weeks ago and when we arrived we were seated upstairs with 2 other tables so there was no atmosphere and no people watching.
They served us so quickly and sent us hone within 45 minutes.
Not a great experience!!
Hostess and management were mean.
We came here from out of town. The service, ambiance, and food were very good. Amazing semi romantic vibes for a nice night out
I didnt enjoy my scallops as they were lacking seasoning. My drinks were great.
Great place, awesome service, beautiful outdoor dining.
Truly a memorable meal and dining experience for my daughter's 18th birthday. The outdoor seating was beautiful - the food and service excellent! I highly recommend.
We had a reservation but they still made us wait 30 minutes to sit at a table and the food was not that great
So nice and relaxing!!! Food was amazing
Great experience! The service was excellent! And the food was delicious. Great atmosphere as well. Will be back!
Food was great and the atmosphere was better.
Just as good as always.
Took my girlfriend out for her birthday a pre weekend celebration. Cute ambiance. Patio dinning. Excellent food. Strong drinks. Good music. Valet or street parking. Sea bass ceviche is a must.
Great place for date nights! Awesome food and nice ambience
Amazing service and not to mention the ambient. Everyone was very polite, manager was so amazing, she politely asked if we could move tables as there was a party that wanted to si together and she bought my girlfriend and I dessert plus a glass of champagne, she made our night more magnificent than it already was 🙂
Overall the food and ambiance was amazing. Only downfall is that we had to wait 45 minutes even after we had reservations.
The manager on duty from Panama really went above and beyond our own expectations. Very hospitable, accommodating and came back to our table to make sure we were comfortable with our new seating arrangement..Professional and really added to the overall experience of the restaurant which was superb! Food, ambiance and staffing...we will be returning sooner than later ;)
Best food, best service! Definitely will be returning
The restaurant has a 2 hour cap time per table. We were made a aware of that a few times (when making our reservation, hostess, and our waiter). I took my boyfriend to this restaurant for his first time and we were looking to have a casual date night. Our waitress took our order within the first few minutes of us settling down. During the entire dinner, we felt super rushed and were done with our entire meal within 30 mins. We weren’t sure why she was rushing us when there were plenty of tables open. We were in and out within 1 hour of arriving and were totally discouraged from ordering more since our experience was pretty terrible.
Amazing as always, the grilled cheese dumplings are always a hit
The ambiance was great! The food overall tasted very well but the amount of food per plate was not at all appropriate for a 6 people party. Our waitress advised us on what was considered large and small plates and when another dish might me wanted if the first one wasn’t enough. It was nice but also seems like a ploy for more money. It would be great if the restaurant added more to the plates being served.
The vibe of the place was completely on point. Very upscale and sexy but unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. From what I heard about this place I expected a lot better food.
First of all, making a reservation is a Joke. I waited 30 mins to be seated, my food was not the best and the server dropped the wine on me and still charged me for it. I would not recommend it to any one or expect to come back I wasted $250 at this place. Many other people with no reservation with bigger party got seated. It’s over rated and over priced. My food was burnt. My lamb chops were burned.
Lovely and relaxing
There's literally nothing bad I can say about Beauty & Essex. The grilled cheese soup dumplings, filet, spicy shrimp... it's all amazing. As is the bubbles & berries cocktail. They've taken all the precautions amid coronavirus to make dining out a wonderful and safe experience.
The food and service was amazing. The tables were a bit close to one another and some tables were only separated by a faux grass wall.
We came here on a double date for my birthday dinner & had the best time! The ambience was amazing, food & drinks were delicious, good music... we kept talking about how fun it was after we had left. Will be back for sure! :)
Owner was awesome and completely made our night special! I asked my sister to be my Maid of Honor and they decorated the cake that way! It was awesome! Thank you!
The atmosphere was amazing. Everything we ate was so good. I can’t wait to go back for a date night with my boyfriend.
The food, ambiance and service were all great. I’ll definitely be back!
Loved it! Will definitely be trying the surroundings restaurants!
