    Came there for a quick meal. Server was incredibly slow and had to get up several times to get him to get our bill. The meal took almost two hours. I asked for the sauce on the side of my meal but the food came out with a sauce all over it.

    We went to Beatrix for Father's Day brunch and had a great meal and a good experience. The food here while not complex is up-to-date, fresh and healthy, and they had something for everyone. Fun brunch drinks. We also sat outside on a nice day. And finally, good service! So many places these days are struggling with staffing that the service is off. Not Beatrix. Thanks for a great day.

    We have been here several times. We were staying at the aloof hotel, next store. Made a reservation for a nice brunch (6/19). Initial service was a bit slow. The waiter was excellent and accommodated all of our needs. Great breakfast choices. Overall, great experience!!!

    The food was average. Not bad but not great just ok. I order a bacon egg and Cheddar sandwich. I thought it would come with hashbrowns or some kind of potato but it didn't. Not a big deal. My boyfriend had the steak and eggs and my son had the chicken tinga. They said it was good but ortio s were small. Maybe as Americans were just used to large portions. It was busy so while service was courteous it was slow. I was looking forward to dining on the patio but it's set up on Clark St and smells from the sewer came over the area every so often. I'll stick to the Fulton Market location.

    We enjoyed a lovely Father’s Day brunch on Sunday and will definitely be back. I have celiac disease as well as multiple food allergies and felt very comfortable eating here. Every table was asked if there were any allergies they should be aware of, and I really appreciated the dedicated gluten free menu. Definitely recommend!

    The appetizer (chicken meatball) is good but the main course is not impressive. Beef is too salty and salmon is mediocre given the $30 price tag.

    Excellent food, enthusiastic service, very energetic vibes. All three in our group (including a vegetarian and a somewhat-picky eater) loved our selection of appetizers (brussels sprouts), the straight-A salad, the short rib, etc., as well as the cocktails and wine selection. I'd definitely recommend unless someone in your party is averse to moderate ambient noise levels - we didn't have any trouble holding conversation, but my grandmother probably would have.

    Strange they only do brunch on Fridays even at lunchtime. We obviously came from work expecting a lunch menu so there were only a few items on the menu that weren't breakfast.

    Outdoor tables are easier to reserve at lunchtime since Clark Street is closed off to make space. It was a lovely lunch. Good wait staff. Delicious mushroom-quinoa burger, a little crispy on the edges, which added to its appeal. Tasty Kennebeck fries. It is a tad noisy on the street but not so much as to prevent a good conversation. This Beatrix is attached to the Aloft hotel, which adds to tourist-watching opportunities if you're up for that. Their menu is accessed on your phone camera via a QR code. There is metered street parking just north and east, convenient with the Park Chicago App, and easy to renew if you need more time. The parking prices, already gouging us residents, have been increased, so be forewarned. Overall a lovely experience -- good food, good vegetarian options, pleasant outdoor area.

    Recently went to lunch with Coworkers. Kitchen totally messed up the order. Then took over an hour to fix it, at which point we had to leave and go back to work. Waiter told us he would remove the items we never received from the bill. But then gave us a bill for the full amount.

    My fiancé and I traveled to Chicago for a weekend and we heard this was a must-do — it definitely didn’t disappoint! It was incredible all around — food was amazing, location is central, service was great, and the atmosphere was great as well. Highly highly recommend. Definitely make your reservations in advance though — it was very busy!
