2nd time here and amazing again. Food is top notch and high quality. Worth the price, lots of interesting choices and lots of fresh fish
The food is excellent .the service was wonderful.the place is little gem in Atlantic beach.
Went for Valentine’s Day which the restaurant completely overbooked. Got there on time for our reservation, and were then told it’ll be 45-50 minute wait. The hostess was not very helpful or friendly, it seemed like she was avoiding us.
Once we got seated in the tent (which wasn’t where our reservation was for), everything was great. Our waitress was amazing especially for the amount of people she was waiting on. The food was great, specifically the appetizers. They did a really good job of decorating the tent and making it feel like a nice, cozy spot. Will definitely come back again but not on a holiday for sure.
First time here and everything was so amazing. Definitely going back!
fun night out! Great food, drinks and service. Clam lover was delicious!!!
This was our fourth time at Beginnings (which has now become our new favorite place). I think our server (we have had the same one each time) has a photographic memory, because she remembered what we ordered on each of our prior visits and even asked if we wanted the same drink order (we did). Very impressive.
We had a delicious meal here at Beginnings. Staff member were attentive and fantastic. The food blew my mind!! I would highly recommend this restaurant. 😊
Apps, entrees, drinks and dessert were all wonderful!
We had a very nice time. The reservation was made with a note we were celebrating a birthday however they didn’t acknowledge the birthday which was upsetting. Still a great experience
I have dined hear numerous times and each time the food is phenomenal (I am pretty picky about restaurants). Highly recommend the porterhouse for two. Staff is great as well. Busy place so make reservations or prepare to wait a bit. Well worth it though! Finally a really high quality restaurant in the Long Beach area.
Really great ambience and food and service. Me and my boyfriend had such a nice time
First time there and will for sure return! Ribeye was outstanding :)
We had a reservation for four people to sit inside and when we arrived were told to wait in the doorway for over 20 min to be told they couldn't sit us inside we had to sit outside in a heated tent. The hostess was beyond rude, had she been nicer and explained what happened we would have understood but this was not the case. It was beyond freezing cold, no one should have been allowed to sit outdoors that evening. We have been there before and everything was wonderful so Im hoping they are better prepared and keep to their reservations.
Delicious food! Great menu! Fantastic ambience!
This is the 2nd time I booked to have a table inside and when I arrived I was told they were overbooked and I would have to sit outside in the tent. I purposely went earlier so that I could sit inside. The hostess was rude when I told her my reservation was inside. The Manager, however, was very nice and took me to the tent and apologized. I would, however, never go to this restaurant and spend what I did for dinner and drinks to sit in the cold. My swordfish and cocktails were very good. My husband and friend ordered burgers and were not happy with them or the fries. Disappointing.
Great spot with great food and service.
Fantastic experience again. Such a variety of choices and very single thing was delicious. Filet mignon cooked to perfection-exactly how asked. Loved the eggplant meatballs and cauliflower app! Can’t wait to go back!
Waitress was pleasant and gave good suggestions when asked. New Zealand Sav. Blanc white wine exactly what I was looking for. Be back sooner than later for sure :)
Sorry don’t have all the pics from everyone- but clearly these pics show some phenomenal things:)
Absolutely fantastic. Service was amazing. Everyone really enjoyed!
Awesome time ... little pricy ! But overall nice !
Beginnings is quickly becoming our new favorite place. Everything on the menu is excellent, but I am addicted to their Gatsby's Return burger, which I start to crave again only a few days after eating it. Our server was spot on with all of her recommendations, and extremely attentive. Thank you.
I ate in the tent and it was warm, comfortable and a very nice atmosphere Food was very good. I will be going back.
First time eating at Beginnings...the atmosphere is great and the food was outstanding. The menu is eclectic and provides the diner multiple options. I want to try everything on the menu.
A great place to safely celebrate 2021!!!! Most amazing staff, excellent menu while always adding creativity and fun!
First time here. I had read the reviews and was hoping this place was as good as the reviews. It was! My fiance and I had a date night on a Wednesday night. we ate in the tent outside, but it didnt feel like a tent at all. The decor was really cozy, the tables and chairs were not foldable/portable furniture, which made it feel like a nice indoor experience.
Although the wine selection is not very varied or impressive, the food and service made up for it. I had the Tagliatelle with tenderloin tips with with crumbled gorgonzola cheese. Probably one of the best pasta dishes I have had in my lifetime. My fiance had the seared tuna served over mashed potatoes which she raved about. To finish off we shared a banana pudding and all i have to say is MAKE SURE TO ORDER IT!
We will definitely be back again!
All of the food was absolutely delicious, and very generous portion sizes! Our waitress, Melissa couldn’t have been any nicer and provided great service. We had the chicken parm, scallops, wings, and the roasted chicken. All of them were great! Definitely would go back.
Just AMAZING!!! Is there anything else to say after that?? Lolol
Beginnings is outstanding! Cocktails and food were amazing and the ambience is so cool and luxe. Great service and food was quick. Highly recommend!
Had a great dinner with some girlfriend's. The food and drinks were delicious. A little pricey but was worth it. Would def come again!
Always a great experience at Beginnings. The food, the ambiance, the staff.
Love to go eat at Beginnings! What a great place. Very friendly atmosphere!!
Food and service were wonderful. Covid restrictions not really enforced.
The food, staff and atmosphere at Beginnings is always wonderful. Always enjoy a trip here
Food was phenomenal!
We love the vibe, the food, and service. A favorite of our family for sure- especially for our elementary aged kids too.
Had a wonderful time here this past Sunday! Ordered the filet mignon. Will definitely come again! Thanks for a wonderful experience.
I have not been To this restaurant in several years because I was not satisfied with the manager at the time. My I wife and several friends went recently and were extremely impressed with service and food. I went with my wife sister and brother in law. We were met at the door and the person apologized for us having about a 10 minute wait. I told them not a problem. They adhered to the COVID-19 restrictions very well. The Sushi appetizer was excellent. The others had some type of shrimp and they also enjoyed it. My wife and brother in law had the pasta with sausage and loved it. My sister had the ribs and they were plentiful and enjoyable. I had the Halibut and it was very good. I recommend this to anyone looking for a nice dinner out
It was great! We were seated in the tent and it was beautiful!
Lovely setting and dinner. Service is not the best but what they lack there is made up elsewhere. Will be back!
Great place snd very good food. Try the fish Tacos. Amazing!
Excellent service and food as always!
