Beauty & Essex- New York
The atmosphere of the space is both grand and intimate, moody and effervescent. Various rooms for lounging and dining unfold on two floors, like a large turn-of-the-century townhouse. Each room has its own unique elements that celebrate timeless jewelry designs and upscale jewelry stores.
The cuisine is multi-ethnic in inspiration, casually elegant, and designed for sharing at the table among friends and family. Where the Stanton Social"s menu is Chef Chris Santos' take on cocktail party classics and street foods from across the globe, Beauty & Essex is rooted in a bold bistro direction focusing on the reinvention of modern family style dining that is both whimsical and sophisticated.

Muy buena atención y comida. Recomendado
Too expensive for too bland of food. Nice decor, but there are much better restaurants in NYC.
An incredible meal - inventive cocktails and dishes - a cool, innovative experience overall !
Enjoy coming here every so often! Lots of compliments but one complaint is the server has too many tables. I understand its lucrative for server but not for the customer. I think it hurts the business as well as you can't reorder drinks before waiting 15-30 mins after you've finished. Service is great just too busy!
Beautiful surroundings & great service.
Went with friends .. food was good, drinks were imaginative and the ambiance was fun. Highlights ... scallops, broccolini, clams, soup dumplings, fries, boolkogi tacos...
The food, service and atmosphere was amazing, I will definitely visit again. Very soon.
The smell is trainable and the bathroom cabins are wet
The food is always so good, and the service is amazing. They are happy to adjust the order size of small plates to accommodate your party. So if a dish has 4 pieces, and you have 6 in your party, they'll bring 6 pieces and adjust the price to match. Our waiter was exceptional and even made sure to put a cake topper I'd brought into my friend's cake to make her birthday extra special!
Amazing food, service and atmosphere
Amazing as always. The soup dumplings and empanadas are a must.
I have been to Beauty and Essex many times and normally love everything about the restaurant. This past Wednesday was not a good night there. Our waitress while very nice did not seem to be around a lot and at one point we had to go find our wine in the ice bucket and pour ourselves since no one was around to do this for us. In addition, our food came before we were served any wine and on this note I had my biggest problem. I was entertaining 6 people for business so maybe that was the reason but I was told the $70 bottle of wine I had ordered (2 of them) was not available but they recommended another that was very similar. We ended up liking it and ordering a 3rd bottle of this red to go along with one bottle of white. When the bill came I realized that the "similar bottle" was in fact twice the price which I thought was not very cool and when I said something the waitress said she had no idea and went to talk to a manager and she then came back saying they would not charge me for the white bottle which I believe was $56. Doing the math they still came ahead $154 and I decided not to make a big scene about this because I was with clients but now will be hesitant to come back with clients. Keep in mind our bill still came out to about $1000 so seems like a poor move to lose this kind of business. I know the place is always packed so they will not notice if I do not come back with clients but it still was an action that leaves a bad taste in my mouth
We had our reservation at 9 and we were sitted at 10.15.
Made us wait for our reservation for 30 minutes. It was our 10 year anniversary, no mention or any special suggestions. Food was very over seasoned and salty. Waiter was super friendly and nice but overall it is super loud, feels like a tourist trap and quality of the food is subpar.
Celebrated my birthday here over the weekend and it is a perfect place for a celebration! The desserts make for the perfect birthday treats! I had the "Birthday Shot" and it was delicious! Will be sure to come back the next time I am in NYC!
The food was surprisingly different which I love! Delicious and innovative !
Birthday. They didn’t do anything special for my husband though. Even though I told them in advance. Not even an offer of a small dessert or something?
One of my favorite restaurants in the city. Service is awesome and food is beyond delicious. The kale and apple salad is one of my favorite things in the world, and I am not into salad at all. The bar staff is awesome too - Amin is always super friendly and personable every time I’m there.
A bit noisy... but fun atmosphere
A great night out with fantastic food and outstanding service. From the interesting entrance through a store front, to the elegant surroundings, it will be a night to remember!
This place has character, in the greatest way possible. I would go there again in a heartbeat!
Amazing amazing I can’t not wait to come back and try some more things ! Amazing !
Excelente... very nice...
The 1 and only issue we had (that left a big impact) was that we were about 13 minutes late to our reservation and had to wait 40 minutes before getting seated. Everything else was pretty great!
Excellent waitress - made us feel comfortable in the setting despite having a 2 year old in the party.
Great place to go for a fun night out in a trendy atmosphere. Fast music plays in the background so noise level is high but great for a night out celebrating with friends. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The food was surprisingly VERY good. They have small plates meant for sharing. Everything we ate was delicious. Doughnuts for dessert were to die for!
I unfortunately found the food to be salty.
Waited 45 mins for my table and had to chase it up to see many other people making the same complaint unfortunately but otherwise it was very good
Love, Love, LOVE!!
Totally reccommend this lovely and unique restaurant to all. Chic and very New York, I enjoyed everything about it. Definitely not inexpensive but worth every penny. Can't wait to go back.
The places is very eclectic and beautiful, and the food was great but I felt the real outstanding quality to mention is the service. They make you feel so welcome and taken care of, and they make atmosphere extremely professional yet genuinely friendly. That’s not to say the food isn’t great, it’s just that they’re so dedicated in helping you enjoy yourself.
Outstanding food and service.
Wow! This place i will really recommend! Perfect in every ways.
Overpriced, very small portions, high prices, that leads you to order multiple entrees, more than you would at expensive restaurant
Great food, service and drinks.
Loud, crazy and fun!
Cool spot to impress. Food was hit or miss. Tuna and Lobster mac was good.
Wonderful and incredible experience.
Food and service were very good. I can get a bit noisy, but overall a good experience.
Very very cool concept and ambiance. Place was beautiful and full of energy. The food is good not great and is expensive for what it is but the atmosphere overrides the just okay food. Go! It’s fun!!
Amazing place. Highly recommend for any occasion
Recommended by a friend but we could not get a dinner reservation. So made arrangements for Sunday brunch & was so in love! Celebrating our daughter’s 17th bday, it was perfect! The small plates to share, like red velvet waffles, dounuts w/ dipping sauce, tomato soup & grilled cheese dumplings ...I could go on. One has to experience. .
It is pricy- especially the drinks but for a special occasion, it’s worth it! Such a cool place. Loved it all & can’t wait to try dinner!
