Really neat place. The restaurant feels very hip and contemporary. Service was excellent from Lando.
The food is horrible, very low quality. no reason to be THAT bad. Also the place is worn out, chairs are all old and the place gets packed with a very mixed crowd that spoils the atmosphere
Awesome experience, staff was fun and personable, and food was great (small portions though). Definitely worth going for the experience! Dimmed lights with candle lit atmosphere in the evening with a great vibe, playing great music in the background. Highly recommend for someone looking for a more fun dinner, yet maintains the intimate feeling of a date💯👌🏻 and definitely try their grilled cheese dumplings... so. good.
Food was creative and tasty, really fun vibe! Would definitely recommend.
A very hip restaurant behind the disguise of a pawn shop. Music is very pop and a tiny bit too loud. Great food at a reasonable price, exceptional service, overall really good value.
One best places to visit in NYC, took my beautiful girlfriend to Beauty & Essex for valentines day. We had a amazing dinner with tasty drinks & the service was superb. Would definitely tell all the fellas out there definitely a great place to take your significant other to have a great time with good music playing.
Went here for Valentine’s Day with my girlfriend and I was very impressed. Exceeded my expectations. The price fixed menu was a great deal for 2 ($125) and every course was delicious.
My only criticism is the chocolate fondue for desert was weak- poor presentation and taste did not measure up to the rest of the meal.
I still give them an A+
Popped in for a "quick bite" on Valentine's Day but they had an amazing tasting menu available - $125/2 ppl for 7 courses so we had to take advantage of such a great deal.
We arrived almost 45 mins late & I was so worried we wouldn't be seated but the whole staff was very accommodating. My boyfriend explained the general flavors of cocktail he wanted to our server (gin, ginger, not too sweet) & they delivered the perfect concoction. Soon after we ordered our drinks I saw that a cozy corner booth had opened up & our server happily moved us to a more "romantic" table. We also informed our server that we were on a tight schedule so he made sure that all of our courses moved through quickly with no delay.
Delicious food, superior service, great ambiance, wasn't overly loud - couldn't have asked for a better date night!
Overall, very disappointing. We ordered one of their specialty cocktails and an Aviation, a classic cocktail. They did not know how to make an Avaition, or did not want to take the time to do so. Ordered a glass of Rose Proseco. It came out as regular Proseco. Was told that it was a Rose, but it was not. Waitress then came back with a glass of Rose and apologized, however it was not cold. In both of these drink issues, the server handled it very well. The Thai shrimp was flavorless and the $65 ribeye was not hot and lacked seasoning. Apparently our server's shift ended as we never saw her again after the entree came out. She did not inform us anyone else would be taking over. Also, it is a very loud restaurant and the tables are very close together. Not a great value or experience for the money.
Food was great, felt a little pressure to order more than we wanted
It was lovely. Great food, exceptional service and an all around nice experience.
This was a nice place for an evening out with my husband. Stunning interior and delicious sharing plates. The surf and turf totally stole the show!
Been to Beauty & Essex many many times and it never disappoints! A guaranteed great meal along with guaranteed great service!
Everything was beyond fabulous! From the food to the service
We went for Sunday brunch. I had been at the Las Vegas B&E in December for dinner and enjoyed the food. Decided to take my husband and son for brunch while visiting NYC. Everything I had was great but my husband was not thrilled with the pork belly BLT. Grits were amazing and it was an afterthought to order them. Looking forward to going back another time.
