Sunday Lunch
Beebe’s is located at the lobby of the Boro Hotel in Long Island City, one of New York’s most dynamic neighborhoods. Our lively and inviting all-day restaurant features a pizza menu which pays tribute to New York’s original old school pies with crisp, thin crust, pizzas topped to the edge. We also feature a New American menu which draws inspiration from Italian and New York classics. Our beverage program features seasonal cocktails, a thoughtfully curated selection of wine, and beer on tap from local breweries. Designed by Eric Mailaender of Resistance Design, Beebe's contemporary, light filled interior features floor-to-ceiling windows with a private courtyard that spans the entire space, offering outdoor seating with intimate city views.

The restaurant is perfect for a date spot. The decor is relaxing and the staff is friendly. The food comes fast, so if you are hungry, it won't take too long! The pizza is a good choice and you can't go wrong trying something new. The calamari is delicious as well as the Brussel sprouts. I will definitely have to come back to try the desserts.

pizza good, other food blah, service laughable - two employees (including the bartender) serving the entire restaurant on a Friday night with two large groups present (clearly had a heads up on that) - a lot of potential but this place sadly won’t last

A table of 4, we shared 3 pizzas: the stracciatella, the hot Italian, and the campfire. All were excellent. Generally, Beebe's was an excellent dining experience. What's off is that it's tucked inside a hotel, attracting what appeared to be a tourist-heavy clientele, which is a bit of a shame in my jaded-New-Yorker opinion. The ambiance, food, and service at Beebe's are all such that it easily ranks among the best pizza places in LIC. More locals should frequent it!

The pizzas we had were absolutely delicious: thin, crisp crust, delicious, fresh toppings. The salad my husband had was delicious as well. The restaurant is located in the Boro Hotel. It was quite quiet for a Saturday night. The wines by the glass were exemplary. The service was excellent. My only criticism would be that the lighting was too bright. Fewer and lower lights would make the space feel cozier and more festive . The patio space is attractive; again, better lighting would improve it.

This was my third visit to Beebe's and it gets better every time! The menu was recently updated and our waitress--she was friendly and attentive--recommended some dishes which turned out to be very good. Try the chicken parm, and the house made ricotta! I'll definitely go to Beebe's again.

My sister and I arrived at boro hotel. The restaurant Beebe’s is located in the back portion of the lobby. But when we arrived outside we walked towards one of the two entrances, we approached the entrance with the sticker on the window that said Beebe’s while the other door had a sticker that said boro hotel. We thought we picked the right entrance. However the bouncer told us this is only for a the rooftop. So we walked down to the boro hotel entrance when we got in we noticed that the entrance the bouncer didn’t allow us to enter was the closer entrance to Beebe’s restaurant and would’ve allowed us to enter in either way! It was so stupid! It was 92° outside we were dying and he could’ve just let us pass and told us not to enter the elevator where the rooftop led. Moving on, we entered the back portion of the lobby where the restaurant was and stood by what looked like a hostess booth. Waiters were everywhere about 15 workers walking casually to counters and the kitchen. However there was no one sitting and dinning. We were the only customers. No one seated us. Finally one of the pizza chefs all the way in the back of the open kitchen saw my sister and I standing irritably still waiting to be seated. He mouthed “sit anywhere”. So we picked a seat where it looked like it had the least amount of sun shining since we were so hot from outside however everywhere we tried to pick had the sun beaming through the restaurant’s glass windows that had no shade or blinds. The AC didn’t feel like it was turned onto a cool temperature, there were no fans to keep the air flowing as well. When we sat down finally, another couple came in about 10 minutes after us. We didn’t get menus yet, but because the couple looked but older than us perhaps 30s while were in our 20s they were served first. A waitress approached their table and gave them menus and water. This is not 15/20 minutes into us sitting. No one gave us water or menus. 25 minutes later finally we received menus.

As a Hotel Manager, I understand trying to staff a restaurant on certain nights.....Beebe's website promotes outdoor seating and thus creates a situation where if you are understaffed, you will be crushed. On Friday, June 30th...at 6:45...there were not enough staff to successfully serve guests is a timely fashion. This is disturbing, since this is a place that can be a very successful business in Long Island City. This is a management problem. The service staff were crazy busy and did their best, and all I could do was sympathize with the situation they had been placed in...I casual, local Queens place that wants to survive and hold on to talented service people needs to set everyone up for success, and make Beebe's what it should be: A great LIC place for food & drink, and a destination for all... Thank you.

The waitress was barely friendly and made it seem inconvenient that we were there. $10 for a small bowl of fries and $26 for a grilled chicken with arugula, not a great use of money in a dead area of LIC.

The food was good but we were so rushed that it ruined the meal. It was our wedding weekend and we were staying at the hotel upstairs. We’d booked a table for 20 people and unfortunately 5 of our group got caught in traffic and were very late. The servers were mulling around the table like hawks, whispering and pointing the entire time. You need one of the tables for another party; I get it, I’ve worked in the industry. So they take one of the smaller tables away and STILL the hovering continues. Then the server clears the entire table, despite the fact that we were all still hungry, and says “do you want anything else?” Well no, I guess not now after you made us all feel like we need to
leave. Rude. And the worst part was that as we grabbed a few drinks at the bar afterwards, the place never even filled up. The entire hotel reeked of marijuana all weekend too. Some way to treat a wedding party!!

The food was great but it's in the middle of nowhere on a semi-vacant street. The service was extremely slow at first (we had to get up and ask for drinks) but then picked up once the food actually arrived.

The pizza was amazing though.
