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.
cauliflower pure, roasted romanesco, wild mushroom gastrique

Drinks had barely any alcohol. We ordered the same tapas as the next door table, ours were definitely smaller portion. $52 beef Wellington was subpar. Our first visit last year was much better.
Fantastic food, Beautiful restaurant, a little pricey but it was a great time.
Always a great place for a special occasion or “just because”. Red velvet waffles, chocolate croissants and doughnuts with dipping sauces are great shareables. The jewels on toast a must-all if them! Steak and eggs-absolute. You cannot go wrong with this menu. Mother’s Day plans there too!
ALWAYS FABULOUS! This was our third dinner at Beauty and Essex and it didn't disappoint. Our server was professional (while still friendly), the food was amazing, ambiance was great (it just feels like a special place). We will definitely go back. Love Beauty and Essex!
This place never disappoints. Our server was very friendly and she timed our meal perfectly. The food was delicious and the music was great. Can't wait to go back!
The Kale / Apple salad is amazing! Service was attentive, pacing of courses was excellent, and cocktails were excellent.
I recommend the salmon tartare and the scallops. The burger was highly recommended, and the layer, angel food cake with Milk ice cream was phenomenal.
Takes an hour to sit down. They always make you wait a little bit this was obnoxiously long.
Great food amazing ambience. Very cool located and lovely cocktails
Amazing amazing amazing!! The food was incredible!
Went to celebrate a girl’s trip in NYC - loved the ambience and thought it was great until the music was a bit too loud. Our server was amazing, and the food was incredible until we reached dessert! We got the Wheel or Wonder, which was incredibly disappointing, with the caliber of other cuisine we had. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and thought overall it was great!
Beautiful place excellent experience
The food was excellent and the service superb! I would come here every visit to New York. We had a reservation for 6 and a table for 4 and they were able to sit us all together. Simply amazing!!!! Thank you for the incredible dining experience.
Great cocktails, great ambiance, food was good!!! Really fun atmosphere!
Cute brunch spot. Good cocktails. Cool restaurant.
This is my absolute fave restaurant! Food and ambiance are always amazing!
Had to wait 45 mins for a table despite having a confirmed reservation. Outside of that, vibe was fun and food was great as always.
It was very fun! Perfect a night out
Awesome bday experience for my 17 year old. She really enjoyed everything about the restaurant.
Overall it was very nice
I loved every single thing about the restaurant. First you enter through a pawn shop so it has a little bit of a “speak easy” feel to it. Then we were greeted by a lovely guy who took our coats and suggested we make a visit to the ladies room where they were serving champagne!!! It was a great way to begin the experience! From then on everything was wonderful. The food was delicious, the cocktails where fun and interesting and the servers were very good. Overall I give this restaurant an A+.
Wonderful ambiance, and outstanding service. The food was absolutely delicious
They sat us in an area where every time someone walks pass my chair, they keep bumping my chair, i requested you be moved
I live on the upper west side so any below 34th street might as well be another country. Now I can’t wait to get my passport stamped again. Amazing ambiance and food. Outstanding service and now my fav.
Really enjoyed coming here. The service and food were fantastic. We loved how it looked inside the restaurant and would definitely recommend this place.
Beauty & Essex is an incredible experience. The decor is classy, the menu creative and delicious with fresh ingredients. I’m always suspicious of how filling I’ll find tapas but sharing the tapas with four friends still left me satisfied. My faves included the grilled cheese and tomato dumplings, the tuna tartare, some dish with salmon in it, and the Thai chili shrimp! The service was attentive for our table of eight. The women’s bathroom is unlike anything else I’ve ever seen. The cocktails were also very enjoyable. With all the food we ordered, I was pleasantly surprised with the relatively low cost per person! High quality food and experience overall! Look forward to going back!
The Restaurant did not disappoint! Ambiance is sexy and food was fun sharing experience.
I absolutely love the Beauty and Essex in Las Vegas, so I was very excited to bring my son to the one in NYC for his 18th birthday. The whole experience was mediocre at best. So disappointing.
Try the tomato tartare. Mind blowing
The atmosphere is fabulous and service perfect...Fun date night place or to enjoy with friends. Food was wonderful, but not crazy unique...
Loved the ambiance and they were very accommodating
Much needed girls night! Food and drinks were spectacular and the service was surprisingly fast considering how packed it was on a Saturday night in NYC.
One of the best meals & service I have ever had. The crispy fish tacos were to die for!
recognised it was a birthday celebration when we checked in but that was it. No birthday dessert/ drink at the end for our birthday guest
Everything was perfect from the storefront to the service to the lighting and atmosphere. Oh yes and the food. Amazing. No complaints whatsoever.
Food is exciting and excellent. Service is very good! Noise level is a bit much to carry on conversations.
Food was great but everything else wasn’t. We had a 2:45 reservation and didn’t sit down until 3:15. Service was horrible and speciality cocktails tasted disgusting. I used to love Beauty and Essex but after my experience this weekend I won’t be returning.
We had booked a table for 2pm. We arrived at 1:45pm and were asked to sit at the bar while our table was getting ready. As it was quite busy, I asked if we would be seated by 2pm and the hostess said the wait should not be more than 10 minutes.
We sat at the bar and waited for the text message. Nothing. Eventually at 2:33pm I sent my cousin to the front desk to inquire on our table and they ushered us in.
When I asked why we had to ask again 33 minutes after or reservation they claimed to have sent me a message. I showed the lady my inbox and she said that maybe it didn’t deliver because sometimes it does that.
I was disappointed as I love this place and had booked it as it was my cousin’s birthday (after giving her rave reviews about it) and it was a let down.
My food order was wrong as well as I had ordered a Gluten after dish and I was given a vegan dish.
One thing to note however - the bartender was a notable mixologist and made u amazing drinks. He had a lot of flair too! He really remedied the situation.
Great ambience and service and well plated food. However most of the dishes we ordered for brunch we served cold and/or bland.
Great place. Nice space and the food variety was pretty good.
A great dinner and vibe. We had a really fun time. Staff was nice and helpful. Would recommend to others and go again!
