We had a wonderful meal. My husband tried the bratwurst for the first time and I had the Chicken Kung Paohio for the second time. It was just as good as the first time. It’s a great addition to the menu. Sacred Beast never disappoints!

Way too overpriced for a mediocre hamburger. The bun was chewy like it had been microwaved. The burger was overcooked.

Our experience was across the board average to poor. We had eaten here previously, a couple of years ago, and it was really good. Liver Pate on toast was awful and presentation seriously lacking....same with steak tartare. Sausages and sauer kraut needed seasoning. Neckbone gravy, fair. The wedge salad was really good! food and drinks were timed poorly, and incorrect drinks were delivered three different times. Maybe it was an off night?

We visited on a busy Saturday night. A little slow getting us a table despite a reservation - which did not seem to matter that we had one. Very noisy. We were not looking for quiet, but it was very loud and we had to talk load at our table. Food was pretty good and priced about right. Service was a little slow, but understandable as they were crowded. Probably won’t go back, but might as options can be limited in OTR on busy nights.

The food at Sacred Beast seems much higher end than you expect from a diner. I had the fried chicken which is more of a tempura coating on a juicy breast. It was excellent and very unusual. Have had the lemon ricotta pancakes too and they will not disappoint. Try this place and it will be on your list of go to places.

Sat at the bar and had a great time chatting with the bartender, learned a lot about the place and thought the custom music reels were pretty cool. Food was great! Ordered all their veggies and split a chicken schnitzel. Didn’t not disappoint, would definitely come back

Sophie was a great happy server. We enjoyed our meals of Chicken Schnitzel and a Cheeseburger. Beers from Three Floyd’s were super. Great place for a pre Music Hall event.

Disappointed 😩. Great space-bright & trendy sophistication, busy & a little rushed on ordering... we picked some featured items - husband had Diners breakfast (pork belly was “gamey”, lemon ricotta pancakes were unique & bright but overcooked, just ok portion). I was sooooooo looking forward to Matzah Ball Soup - awwww TAKE it off your menu unless you’re going to do it right! Nice portion with wonderful veggies but broth was OFF & the star: Matzah Ball tasted OLD, heavy & .... no way met expectation!
With so many options for brunch & Bloody Marys - just OK, nice taste to drinks but heavy ice & 1/2 size from others...
Might have been an off day, but we did pick HIGHLIGHTED features to get a best 1st impression-missed the Mark!!!

We wished more people were dining with us so we could have ordered several different dishes. The menu is unique; you’ll want it all. Additional items are offered Saturday and Sunday. Our waiter, Wyatt, was welcoming, congenial and attentive.

We were with 2 other couples in a booth. We couldn't hear each other as the music was far too loud. Ordered the Dirty French which had a great flavor overall. Had the waiter asked I would have had the burgers on the Dirty French cooked med rare. They were cooked well done, making them very firm which detracted from the entree.

We went on a busy day, Valentines day, so that could be the reason for some of the things. The drinks were good, the atmosphere was good, but the food was really salty and turned me off to coming back for a meal.

Extremely over priced for mediocre food. I've been a vegetarian for 30 years, SB has virtually no veggie options other than a couple items they suggest can be altered to veggie. My friend ordered the salmon which arrived on a plate with not one side. A small portion at best but absolutely nothing else, no bread, no veggies, nothing but a small portion of salmon. I noticed several plates being delivered containing their signature burger, a burger on a large bun with absolutely nothing else. If you want fries or a side, that's extra and you end up paying $20 for a burger, ridiculous!!!

Great service, great food. A bit on the pricey side. Everything is a la carte. We went with another couple and were very happy with our choice and definitely happy we had reservations. Service was excellent!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in OTR! With a hip vibe and one of the friendliest staffs anywhere, it makes this an easy choice for any dining occasion. The food can be characterized as elevated diner fare, with breakfast available at any time, a killer burger and some great entree selections. The salmon is my go-to dish, but I have yet to have anything here that was less than excellent. Portions are very generous.
