One of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. First, we were early, 7 pm, and they were out of over half the menu. The service was the worst I have ever had. I had to have a temper tantrum to get anything like bread or a second drink. Food however was not bad, not great.
Alla and her amazing staff accommodated us at the last second for a very special occasion...and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! The ambiance of the bar, vibe of the room, and chemistry among the staff created a perfect backdrop for a birthday weekend. Our only regret is that it took us so long to get to Beacon!
Thanks to all who made our weekend getaway at The Beacon Hotel a perfect one. We'll be back, no doubt...😉
This is the absolute first time I ever walked out of a restaurant and refused to pay. There was seriously something wrong with our waitress, she had no idea about the 6 items on the menu, coffee came out cold, no spoon even when asked, they brought out wrong orders TWO times. The second time the tomatoes in my salad still had the price stickers on them.... So my tomatoes were not washed, clearly. Obviously they are in the midst of some staffing changes, but with all the amazing restaurants on Main street, why ever go here!? A complete embarrassment for any owner.
This is a pleasant restaurant. The food is good but unremarkable.
It's very different but very delicious. Wasn't sure about what I ordered but everything,even the burger was yummy. I had the black eye pea special. Great teas and drinks.
We have been there for brunch twice. The food experience is really fantastic and the ambiance is very pleasant. Service needs some improvement. A bit more engaged with clients... Also, please more coffee choices!!
We had a nice casual dinner here. I opted for a burger and a glass of wine! The service was great as well as having nice ambience.
Service was great , nice ambiance, food was weird ! Had to have waiter explain literally the whole menu ! Maybe I'm just old !
Delicious and artful dishes. Staff was attentive, courteous and did not hover excessively.
Delicious Easter brunch! It would be great to see some more options on the brunch menu though, maybe some appetizers and dessert.
This was our third visit to this restaurant, and we have never been disappointed. This time we brought some friends, and they were as pleased as we have always been.
While we enjoyed ourselves, due to our being with friends, we felt that there was room for improvement in both service and presentation. If there were any specials, we were not made aware of it. Thinking that the menu was rather weak in offerings, one would have thought that a Chef's inspired creation, may have been lurking in the kitchen. We started off with cocktails, that were minimally described. Our cheese plate was accompanied with a charred loaf of average bread. Our entry's were a mix of good, to not eaten. We ordered a Malbec, which we found enjoyable. We all spooned into a slice of Cheesecake, which was delicious and thought that it was most likely made off premises. All in all, we'll give it another try. After all, they give a batter three strikes before they're out!
I was deeply disappointed in the meal. Our first course fried smelts were room temp to cool when they arrived at the table, instead of hot-warm. The country pate should have a good amount of mustard served with it, not a small smear on the plate.
My date's entree was substantial in size and portion. My entree (duck) was almost a tasting style plate, and the duck was seared too hot. We gave up after that and decided not to stay for dessert.
I'm a huge fan of the chef, and will give it another try at some point, but the price point of the entrees vs the portion on some of the plates is very high.
Terrific addition to Beacon's restaurant scene. The only place I've ever ordered a glass of red wine in this town and been impressed with what was poured. Food is beautifully presented and exceptionally delicious.
the food was lovely to look at but not great in taste or value . duck was dry , pate was only average though compote with it was superb .
ambiance is great . bar vibe up front and quiet in the back
very good service .
This is a new favorite! We've been often and have never been disappointed in any way. Great food, lots to choose from, and great space. I highly recommend giving it a try!
Combination of great ambiance, creative cuisine and excellent service. Closest to what I typically look for in a New York / Brooklyn dining experience than any other place I came across in Beacon. Highly recommend!
We loved our first meal at The Beacon which was on Valentines Day , the food was delicious and the service was excellent except that our server forgot to ask us if we wanted coffee with our dessert, and then she disappeared...maybe an emergency? It didn't matter though, we didn't mind not having coffee and really enjoyed ourselves. It's great to have a new restaurant in town that is on par with many in NYC. Kudos to the chef and interior designer!
Exceptional service and some of the best food my wife and I have ever had. Couldn't have been a better place to go for Valentine's Day. We're thrilled to have this place in town!
Delicious and high quality food. Nice and new restaurant with great decor.
Dishes were beautifully presented and full of interesting flavors. We ordered an appetizer that was shared four ways, and each of us ordered our own entree. While the plates looked small, everyone ended up satisfied without feeling stuffed. Not a wine connoisseur, but I enjoyed my glass of Sauvignon Blanc (it was maybe a dollar or so more than I normally spend).
We had a fabulous meal and the service was as it should be. Good food needs the respect of good service. It doesn't matter how good your food is if you can't get it to the table in a timely manner. There are items on the menu that I normally wouldn't choose to eat, but because I know the chef I'll eat anything he makes. His creative mix of flavors and textures never disappoints!
A little drafty by the front windows on a cold night. Food was unique, good. Very Artisan. Enjoyable atmosphere!
Beautiful decor, cold food, minuscule portions, overpriced.
First time at this new place. Much of the staff from the now-defunct Hop, which was also in Beacon. Had an excellent Manhattan, also some nice in-house special drinks on the menu.
Fried smelts were outstanding - I'll be back for that and a beer soon.
Had duck breast for a main, which was a big disappointment. Meat was tough and too little of it. There was nothing else on the plate, really sparse. It should be on the Small Plates menu. Deserts were nice, but I left hungry, in spite of a pretty large bill.
It's early and I'm sure there will be some growing pains, so looking forward to coming back in a few months once they've had some feedback.
The ambience was great! The food was good too, and while I didn't mind paying $27 for my halibut and seafood sausage, the quantity of the food, and the price were at polar opposites. I might have had to go home and eat another meal were it not for the orange semolina cake which, much to my surprise, was more than ample. Other than that, I loved the decor of the Beacon Hotel---the bar looked splendid and so did the tables and the size of the rooms. Good job with designing!
A great new addition to dining in the Hudson Valley! Plenty of choices on the menu to please everyone. The items we had were really delicious - I can't wait to try more. Generous portions without being overwhelming. Nice comfortable space - liked the room. A really lovely experience overall.
