Its a nice place. We sat in a doorway a little isolated from the main dinning room made it sort of odd like we were outside looking in. The service was really good and they were very thorough checking both our vaccine cards and ids to make sure they matched. Which i appreciated. We had a little of everything, the little french dips, the tomato soup dumplings and the lobster sopes were excellent. We got the crispy eggplant and that was less impressive it was heavily coated in sesame oil and that was all you could taste. We ordered the ribeye and beef wellington to share and the ribeye although really tender was underwhelming it was seasoned unevenly one side to salty and the other no salt. The beef wellington was good, cooked well. Then the donuts for dessert they were delicious. If i were to come again (which i probably wouldn't as there are so many options in NYC) I would only get the small plates and dessert.
Reservations dont really make a difference at this restaurant because you still have to wait. They have a selective dress code. A friend was held at the door and analyzed by the door person for having on a short sleeve shirt .... yet others were permitted in with luggage, sportswear and non tailored garments. -_-. So that made absolutely no sense to us when his look was tailored and fashion appropriate. Otherwise the waitstaff was great and the food is consistent although you'll wait a long time for drinks and food.
very cool restaurant with great drinks! food was pricey but tasty. tapas style ordering. highly recommend the milkshake shot dessert and cookie
Overall fun. Loud beyond belief! Lots of bdays around us so may have been it. Waitress was sweet. It was my son’s birthday and they forgot to send a candle. Kind of a bummer but not a deal breaker. Definitely not for families. A very young vibe. Not bad.
Thai Chili Fried Shrimp 10/10.. amazing flavor.. just could use another shrimp or two.
Peruvian Chicken 10/10.. chicken was amazingly juicy and the sauce was so rich and savory. Perfect amount of chicken.
Broccolini 8/10. Solid side but I can’t quite put my finger on what was missing.
That sunset dip? Drink 100/10 (I love passion fruit) .
Donut dessert (8/10) was solid, however I will say the berry sauce was a bit too tart and the chocolate sauce was bitter, but that caramel sauce was amazing.
For a dinner for 2, I could not complain about price. Ambiance was perfect at around 5 which is when we arrived. Our waiter was perfect and timed every course perfectly. Overall, extremely satisfied and will definitely be back. It was my SO birthday and it was very comforting/cozy.
The hype is real! What an evening. Been wanting to go for some time. we went for my daughters 24th birthday. we were a party of 5. Everything we ordered was excellent. Service was terrific and would go back in a minute. The dumplings, cauliflower tacos, salmon and Peruvian chicken entrees amazing.
Fun place great cocktails. Food average and expensive
Great experience, however, my only complaint is about the drinks. If I am paying for a martini, serve it in a martini glass. Don’t cheap out and serve it in a champagne glass. I was shocked that a place with this price point would do that.
Consistently new and exciting menu options, superbly attentive (but not intrusive) service, and great ambience. Beauty & Essex has maintained its high standards year after year.
Appetizers and drinks were great, but dinner portions. Atmosphere were unique. Definitely made my boyfriends birthday special.
Loved the atmosphere and the service. They were so accommodating with our reservation when we had to make a last minute change. We will definitely be back again when we are in NYC!
Great atmosphere. Some portions are small, so order a few entrees and share would be my recommendation.
Amazing energy. Amazing food. Amazing service. Love this place
Awesome experience, excellent decor, atmosphere, DJ, food and drinks, you name it, I'll definitely return. This makes for the perfect date night and even better if you have a group. Had a wonderful time!
Me and my group of friends had the absolute best experience here! I celebrated my birthday and when I say I was thoroughly impressed! The service was incredible
The FOOD WAS AMAZING! And the environment and music were excellent! I was surprised how great this place was! YOU have to go it’s necessary!
Always enjoy my visit when I come in from Toronto!
The waiter was friendly and served us well. The food is top notch and the atmosphere is great.
I love Beauty and Essex, the ambiance, kitschy pawn shop, bar etc… Have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. It was always good, but it is now delicious! Honestly, my friends and I are all foodies, lived in Paris… it was beyond expectation. We love to order and eat family style. Now… please bring back the champagne bar in the ladies room! 😜
Service professional, restaurant chic and great music, AMAZING FOOD
Excelente atención! Muy buena comida!
Great ambience and the food was delicious (skip the mac and cheese tho, it wasn’t all that special)
The food was amazing, the service was great, will definitely be back!
Ok so I have two issues. 1. For out of town guests it would be nice to remind them to bring along there vaccination card. When I received my confirmation call this wasn’t mentioned.
2. Apparently the computer systems went down so the server took a very long time to bring the check. But didn’t mention the issue until 45 mins later. She made for it with yummy donuts.
Great place to bring a date, noisy but the vibe is uplifting with great lounge music
Wish i caught servers name but she was great, the food was very good. Especially the tomato soup dumplings- had to get two rounds of those. My ribeye was delicious and big- too much for me to finish. And my dining partners raved about their lamb chops and ny strip too! Music was a bit loud for comfortable convo but playlist was good so couldnt complain, honestly lol
Beautiful setting....definitely a wow factor upon entering from shop outside.
Mexican ravioli, Tomato dumplings, French dip all recommended.
Will definitely return.
I went early I imagine vibe gets even better as night goes on
This place is super cute. Perfect for date night, celebrations, or girls night out. Everything was delicious and our service was great! Will definitely be returning!
Great atmosphere, good service, good food. A little expensive, but to be expected in NYC. Two people ordered 4 dishes and did not leave stuffed, but happy!
Made a reservation a week before, paid for it, when we got there they gave us the last table of the dining room next to the bathroom and below to AC.
Asked to switch to one of the three empty tables in the center of the room and they said they were expecting a large party and could not make the switch. Shocker no big party ever arrived.
When I confronted them they just said “I’m not sure what happened, the party suddenly became smaller”
No apology at all.
Beauty and Essex remains one of my favorite restaurants in nyc. I adore the entrance at the pawn shop and the menu is outstanding. The drinks are balanced while remaining complex. And the service is always outstanding.
Grilled cheese soup dumplings (I could eat 100 of them)
Fantastic experience, start to finish
Great spot! Food and atmosphere was on point. Appreciate that it was super busy but didn’t feel crowded.
Amazing vibe and experience and the food is even better! Definitely a must!
Our Server Cameron was kind, knowledgeable and helpful.
The Lady's restroom attendant may have been the loveliest person we've ever met.
Not worth the money. Cocktails were good but food was overpriced and not worth it. I would not go again
Great atmosphere! Love the speakeasy vibes with the front of the restaurant being a pawn shop. The food was amazing! I had the pan seared scallops, oysters, spaghettini and then the wonder wheel desert with my best friend for her birthday dinner! Will definitely be coming back here again!
Food quality just isn’t what it used to be. Takedashi tuna overly salted and scant. Burger was crazy greasy—and I love a greasy burger—the oil just overwhelmed all flavor. The scallops and risotto dish was the best of the “large plates”, but I wouldn’t order it again.
Tortilla soup dumplings, cacio e pepe mac and cheese, and the bone marrow were the best parts of the experience.
Just overall disappointed because I remembered this place being so much better.
We felt rushed during this dinner - in and out in under 45 minutes. The servers were cold and not personable. The food was just okay for how much we spent. It was plated beautifully and they did let us know how many pieces each order came with in case there weren’t enough for each of us to have one so that was thoughtful. We were recommended this place by a friend who used to work there for years but when we asked if the staff knew her they acted uninterested and just said no they didn’t know her. It was beautiful but we probably won’t be back.
It was a great atmosphere and food was absolutely outstanding!
You must come here if you like good music, good and drinks. I celebrated my bday here lastnight and the vibes were immaculate! Def coming here again and the service was amazing. They really care about your time there and do everything to make it a great night out
