Overall, the place is fun, but I don't think I'll be returning for a meal again. I made a reservation and that didn't affect being seated quickly. I still had to wait for the parties in front of me to be seated. The waitress was clearly covering too many tables. She was good at her job, but we felt it was hard to get a hold of her because she was always at a different table. They charge for bread and butter, where most civilised restaurants give that complimentary- like it's actually on the menu as an appetizer. We ordered the scallops and the salmon. Both were overcooked and I found that the meal didn't satisfy me (less than 5', 100lb, tiny appetite), let alone my boyfriend. For the quality, the meal was way over priced.

BUT the drinks were great and the music was awesome. I would return for a cocktail and to listen to music, but not to eat.

I had only been to The Beehive for drinks with friends in the past; the great ambiance and live jazz music is the perfect way to spend a weekend night. Most recently though I went for a dinner date and could not have been happier with the service we received. Our food (The burger and the vegetarian curry) came out extremely fast and was hot and fresh. Our waitress was so pleasant and helpful, while not overbearing, and the hostess was able to accommodate our request to sit close to the stage!

I will absolutely be back to sample even more of the delicious food and custom cocktails!

The wine selection by the glass did not pair good with the food. The selections were mediocre.

Otherwise great overall.

Good food and wait service! This was not our first time so we knew what to expect as far as noise level. However, the after work bar scene on a Thursday night is very loud. Our table was close to the bar and we were glad it was large enough for us (2) to sit side by side. Otherwise, we would not have been able to have any conversation at all. Overall good vibe and good food.

I’ve dined here several dozen times and it used to be astounding. Over the years the quality has decreased. This most recent time was for Valentine’s Day and I don’t know if it was bc it was a fixed menu churning out dishes for quick turnover or if they’ve just gotten lazy, but the menu was in inspiring and the meals were over cooked. I love the beehive but I’ve been very disappointed in their kitchen the past few times. I gave up when I ordered a “chocolate mousse” and I received a hard chocolate cake the size of my shoe that I could stick my fork in and it stayed standing. I would absolutely go for a drink and great jazz in awesome ambiance but until something new happens in that kitchen I would recommend going anywhere else for the money you are gonna Spend.
