Every course was a treat, and the service was prompt and attentive. Just the noise level distracted from the otherwise excellent evening.
Beauty & Essex is the perfect place for dinner and drinks. Their food is unique and delicious and allows you to try many different dishes. I’ve been to the one in Las Vegas a few times, which is one of my favorite restaurants there but this was my first time at the one in NY and it was just as good! I’d absolutely recommend eating here! Service was also great.
Fantastic dining experience. Very cool atmosphere... everything from entering through the “pawn shop” to the decor and champagne service in the bathroom made for a hip and fun atmosphere! The service was excellent - our waiter was friendly, accommodating and extremely prompt. He was very helpful in helping us navigate the menu and made numerous suggestions. The food was outstanding! Everything we ordered was fabulous... in fact we ordered too much because after tasting the first round (grilled cheese and tomato soup and tuna wonton tacos) we were so impressed... we wanted to try a little of everything! All of the food (and cocktails) were top notch! Fantastic experience at Beauty & Essex! Highly recommend!
Excellent food and cocktails. Portion size is just right.
The best restaurant in NYC...the food is exquisite! Amazing every time!
Came here to celebrate my daughters 20th bday and it was perfect! We loved the ambience, the food and the customer service!!
Fantastic service for a group of 7
Best music ever and food was amazing. Waited long for our reservation though
Everything was great, except we had to wait an hour past our reservation to sit.
Our first visit to Beauty and Essex was for brunch. Walking through the pawn shop to get to the restaurant was fun and the interior is decorated in a current way that lends itself to casual dining or a special occasion for small or large parties. The menu has a variety of items available to appeal to a variety of tastes. We stayed on the lunch side and enjoyed the kale salad, lobster and chorizo hash and two different sandwiches. The portions were generous enough to share and sandwiches come with fries which we could not finish. The drink menu was interesting and offers delicious alcoholic and non-alcoholic options. Finally, the service was fantastic making our visit very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend a visit!
Wonderful experience. Fantastic food which kept us going for the whole day.
Fantastic late night dining. The atmosphere around us slowly morphed from lively restaurant to full-on nightclub as we ordered more small, shareable dishes. Great for a date night with your special boo.
We had a wonderful dinner here! The food was great and the atmosphere was lovely!
We highly recommend this restaurant!
Comida regular, caro para el producto que es. El lugar está bueno
Really enjoyed my dinner in beauty and Essex. Really cool spot, atmosphere and surroundings were relaxing but vibrant. Food was delicious, and so were the cocktails!!
This was our favourite restaurant in NYC during our stay. The food is exceptional and the ambiance of the setting fits perfectly to make for a special evening. The menu isn’t cheap but the portions are a good size compared to other fancy places in New York.
Excellent food, ambiance was great. Service was fabulous too.
All around amazing evening. The food, drinks, atmosphere and music was spectacular!!! Definitely recommend and will come back!!! ❤️
Xavier was amazing! Thank you for making my mom’s bday dinner wonderful, thanks for being such a great waiter and providing awesome customer service. Hope you have a great bday next month. :-)
Everything was great except that we are a tall family and had to ask to me moved to a table with more legroom .When we asked our waitress (white )she seemed visibly annoyed and said she had to ask a manager .She never communicated with us after .The manager came over and was polite , moved us to a bigger table and gave us a new waiter who happened to be black .We are a black family .The waiter was amazing
The menu was an elevated experience and delicious! Ryan our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable & overall fantastic!
Excelente. Volveria con ganas
Absolutely everything was amazing!!! Champagne is the bathroom was a great touch and welcomes surprise!! Still thinking about the tuna poke tacos three days later!! Definitely a must order!
Great place! Def will go back!!
We had an amazing experience here. The service was great, the food was amazing.
We celebrated our 34th Wedding Anniversary with an outstanding dinner. Our waiter wished us a Happy Anniversary and presented us with a glass of champagne. During our dinner other waiters would come by our table and wish us a Happy Anniversary. At the end of the dinner the waiter delivered us a special dessert. Great Food, Great Atmosphere, Great Waiter paying attention to detail.
The environment is really cool, but the food was not impressive (sent back a dish) and it felt like the location was meant to be a bar more than a nice dinner spot. Prices were high for the quality of the food.
Our waiter walked away several times AS WE WERE SPEAKING. We continually had to flag him down. Fun place, great food.
I went there with my daughters. We all loved it. Definitely not a family crowd but they loved the vibe and the scene. The food was creative and delicious. Will definitely come here again.
Amazing food and ambiance - will be back for sure!
it was a great evening, the service and food was spot on! My only complaint was the loud music that kept escalating throughout eve, it was so loud that we had to shout to have a conversation, we mentioned it to server, he agreed, they turned it down, and 15 minutes later turned it up again!
We arrived from Ireland especially for this restaurant for a surprise to my friend for her birthday. I requested a round table to be in a lively part of the restaurant and a bottle of champagne to be at the table ready to pour. We received a table away from the main part of the restaurant and no champagne at the table. I had called in advance to ask if the chef could make a small individual lemon meringue as this is my friends favourite. I was told that it could not be done. I was also told that we could not have a round table as they are for parties of 5!!!!! There were 2 people sitting at one of the tables when I arrived.
The restaurant aircon was extremely cold and I asked 8 times to have it turned off or down it could not be done. We had to put our coats on it was so cold. We then asked for the menu's twice and once we received them the waitress explained the menu so quickly we have to call her back a few minutes later and go through the menu again. We ended up asking her to bring the most popular dishes. This is what she did and I cannot fault the food as it was great.
When I arrived I gave the team my card and told them that I would pay the check and that no-one at the table was to request or pay for the check. I also told them just to run the card and I would sign away from everyone. We had finished our dinner and said that we did not want dessert. The waitress arrived down with the check to which there was discussion about who would pay the check.
For a place that is very cool and great food, it was an extremely disappointing experience.
The maître d' - Patrick apologised in advance for the check incident. He also apologised for the aircon and the champagne not being at the table. He removed a portion of the final check and was very apologetic for our experience. I outlined that I appreciated his sentiment but that for me it was about the experience and not the money, especially having flown in to the US specifically to eat her. NOT GOOD
I loved the service provided at Beauty & Essex! All the staff did their best to help me with flowers and a gift I had for my boyfriend's birthday. It was an unique experience.
Love the ambiance!!!! So romantic, friendly staff, and super classy looking.
Loved the concept of the complimentary rosé champagne
While you’re in the women’s lounge!
The food was fantastic! We loved that there was a little bit of everything on the menu. The atmosphere was super cool!
The vibe, quality of food, service and the ambience makes this place our go to when we want a wow evening
Went for Sunday brunch with friends. Beautiful restaurant. Creative brunch tapas menu items. A bit pricey for some items. Kale apple salad awesome as were the eggs benedict. The server seemed a bit aloof and didn't bring our coffee until we had to ask again. However the other attendants were attentive and cleared our small plates.
Surprised bus boy didn’t wipe table when changing plates. Overall good food, good drinks and a fun time! Thank you for the complimentary cake pops!
