Beehive Ratings and Reviews
I went to The Beehive on a date for brunch and I was severely disappointed with the service, I couldn't really enjoy much else. Our waiter did not even ask us if we wanted a cocktail, hurriedly asked us what we wanted to eat, then rushed our food out, and wanted us to leave quickly. It was very evident he wanted to turn the table over quickly which I find rude and disrespectful in any setting. He gave us our check saying, "No rush," but then walked by the table at least five times checking to see if there was a card inside, one time even opening the check and was surprised to see we hadn't paid yet. I really hated the experience and I'm sad because the food was decent. I probably won't come back.
We were visiting Boston and my fiancé loves jazz. I planned the trip and made all the reservations. I was debating Beehive over another top rated jazz joint and was so happy we went with Beehive. The table was amazing with a view of the artists and the service was on point the second we walked in the door. From being greeted to saying good-bye, Beehive is the place to go for good jazz, great service and delicious food. Try the ceviche and roasted cauliflower! What a great experience overall.
CANNOT EXPRESS ENOUGH HOW ACCOMMODATING, FRIENDLY, COMFORTABLE, AND HELPFUL, THE STAFF WAS!!! FOOD AND SERVICE WAS FABULOUS!!! WE TRAVELLED FROM DAYTON OHIO AND HAD A SURPRISE VISIT BY OUR FAMILY. THEY TRAVELLED ALL THE WAY FROM STEUBENVILLE OHIO FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!! EVERYONE THERE WAS THE BEST!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING MY SISTERS AND MY NIECE WITH SETTING THIS UP!!!!!!!! WHAT A GREAT NIGHT!!!
The food was excellent, but the service was disappointing. Our waiter was great, but the host staff was extremely rude and had terrible customer service. We arrived early to our reservation to see if we could fit one extra person at our table. After being told "there was no possible way they could fit a 7th chair at our table" we told our friend there would not be room for him at brunch. We proceeded to wait another 45 minutes for our scheduled reservation time, until the hostess came to get us to take us to our table. After we got there and all sat down she came back and said "oops I grabbed the wrong party, this table is not for you." We thought she was joking, but to our disbelief she actually made us get up from the table and go wait at the front of the restaurant again. After all that we finally got to sit down at our "real" table, and our waiter asked if our 7th person would be joining us because there was plenty of room at the end of the table to add a 7th chair. Again in disbelief, we told him that the 7th person wasn't going to be joining us because the host staff sent him away. What would have otherwise been a great brunch with friends took a turn for the worst due to a rude hostess staff treating us very poorly. It's unfortunate that they are the first people you come in contact with at the restaurant because they totally ruined it for me and the rest of my party of 6.
Ambiance was interesting but there are some nicer parts of the restaurant than others and I didn't like the area we were seated in. We were overlooking the stage area. There was a weird projection of a video playing and was too bright and distracting. My eggs were cold when they were brought to the table but my friend's were fine. The waitress was not very attentive when we first arrived and we had to ask other waitstaff for things we needed but at the end she was over attentive and kind of wouldn't leave us alone. Seems like a hit or miss place but I probably won't go back soon.
I was looking forward to a great Sunday Night of Blues and good food. The food and the service were spectacular, but note their website is misleading. It says to be guaranteed a table you must have dinner. Which is fine, but if you reserve one of the dinner tables you are no where near the music. Also the tables in the dinner area are so close together, you feel awkward staying and enjoying the music. They line up tables along a bench so you you are sitting next to someone who isn't at your table. There are tables near the band, but I still haven't figured out how you snag one of those.
The service was terrific. The food was good, but the portions were small. We both felt that the meal was overpriced.
The noise was what will probably keep me from going back. Live entertainment in a restaurant is wonderful, but I still want to enjoy conversation with my dining partner, not attend a concert with food. Whenever they were playing, we couldn't talk.
So the overall experience was very disappointing.
Four of us came for brunch on Saturday at 10:30 after reading positive reviews of the food, jazz (live) and overall ambiance. We were not disappointed! The coffee was excellent; bold and flavorful. We shared the coffee cake appetizer which was small but so very good, served with a cinnamon butter spread. The menu has many unique and mouthwatering options, we opted for breakfast fare. We each had a different meal, shared bites all around and felt all were excellent. Would not hesitate to come back for brunch on another visit to the south end.
Menu has choices for all tastes. Food is better than average and décor has that slightly trendy but old school look. Staff were very friendly and on point service. Great place for late breakfast/early brunch eats with friends. Extra bonus was in hearing distance of a jazz trio playing in the downstairs dining area
