    What a cool vibe! Enjoyed the jazz brunch. Although it was a little loud, you could still hold conversations. Food was really good. All around great experience. The lamb and egg shakshuka was amazing! French toast was awesome and the eggs bennie looked perfect. Thank you all at the Beehive! I'll be back for blues night!!!

    One of the strangest dining experiences ever to be honest. The food was good but we were told that desserts were not served on the weekend (likely because they want ppl to move out of tables when the live music starts at 10pm). Of course, people on both sides of us were served dessert so it was a farce. Plus there were multiple tables open upstairs where we were sitting - not sure why we were being pushed out. Why create an issue over something so inconsequential really? Very odd.

    Where to start -- this experience was horrific. We were excited to try something new and go to a trendier restaurant with a fun ambiance. Unfortunately, it was extremely pricey, and less than sub-par. The cocktails were terrible. I ordered the shrimp, and they were so overcooked they were chewy. At least the ribs were good. To top it all off, the management was extremely rude to my party and the service was downright bad. I'll be spreading the word on social media and in my friend groups that Beehive is NOT it.

    Our server Malone was unbelievable- she was friendly professional and genuine. We weren’t sure what to order so we asked her to just choose 3 appetizers… they were all unreal- ribs were the favorite. We had the truffle gnocchi and the NY strip steak for dinner. Atmosphere was fun, drinks were made perfect- food was amazing all and all I would come back again and again for the service. Malone made the experience! Thanks so much we will for sure be back!!

    This is a fun and vibrant place with just enough noise to be animated and also able to talk at the table. The food was creative and delicious. The staff was knowledgeable about the food and the service impeccable. We will definitely return. Great place for small groups out for a night of great food, drink, and fun.

    Fantastic waitstaff! Very attentive. Great blues music here. The apps are really good- baby back ribs, chicken wings and cauliflower truffles. Great cocktails too! The Spanish wine 🍷 in a carafe was good too. Very fresh and smooth. The three mice in the kitchen and one entered the floor with the tables needs to be fixed.

    I have been to Beehive several times and had lots of fun but unfortunately the last two times has been very frustrating. I went there to celebrate my friend's 40th birthday this past weekend. I called in advance to have, preferably, a table close to the band and to have a special dessert for my friend. They said they would take care of it. They even got my friend's name to write on the dessert. Once we were there and was time for her dessert, they had nothing prepared. I had to ask one of the managers, who said she was going to check about it but we received just a regular dessert with a candle. After we paid we found a table by the band but within a few minutes there we spotted at least 3 mice running around close to the door of the kitchen fighting over a lettuce. For them to be out and about in a such a noisy environment, means they are very comfortable and probably there are many more. Anyway, I don't plan to go back, which is sad. It was my favorite jazz place :(

    The food was very mediocre: eggs Benedict were cold and tasteless, the frittata was too rich and bland. The salad was lettuce dressed in something vinegary. Also, there is a huge difference in the upstairs and downstairs seating with the latter infinitely preferable. Although we had a reservation and arrived when the place was almost empty, we never got the chance to choose and only realized the difference much later when it was too late. The music was good and it’s too bad that otherwise the experience was poor.

    It was disappointing that the beef was sold out. Also, the night was to include a live band and it was a solo guitarist. He was GREAT but it was underwhelming.

    Ran out of a good number of the holiday foods for the fixed meal, so we did not get to get all foods that we would have liked or enjoyed. The live music for our time slot also never showed up, which we were looking forward to

    Thanksgiving dinner. Reservation was @7pm, they sat us at 7:30 and then told us they ran out of some main course options just 10 mins prior to us being sat so if we were sat on time there wouldn’t have been an issue. The server even expressed disappointment because he said his tables had been sitting open and available for a long time even prior to our reservation. Ruined our thanksgiving as we went there for the main course that was sold out. There also wasn’t live music that was supposed to be scheduled for that time.

    Good food and music. Somewhat overpriced though. We had Thanksgiving dinner and it was a Prix Fixe menu which was fine except for the fact when it came to dessert there were four options and the one we wanted they were out of. Yes, seven of us all wanted the chocolate crème pot and they were all out. The manager compensated, but we were surprised they ran out at 5:30 on Thanksgiving Day with many meals yet to serve. We did enjoy our meals and the music and would likely return.

    We have spent 5 Thanksgiving's with the Beehive. This year was different. We understand there is a need to turn over tables however the waiter was very friendly and attentive but there was a woman going around cleaning tables and she was hovering over us constantly taking stuff off of our table which was very unsettling. She literally was like watching as we set a fork or plate off to the side she immediately came over and took it. We felt rushed and not relaxed. Even though we were not at the table more than an hour and 30 minutes in total from seating to paying our bill. We have tried other restaurants but felt very rushed so we always come back to the beehive because of its relaxed atmosphere. We will rethink that next year.

    Food was great and our server was excellent. However they sat us in a crammed spot directly next to the servers station. As we ate and talked there were various waiters, including our own inches away from us talking amongst themselves which just made the experience a little uncomfortable. They shouldn’t have a table that close to the servers station. Ive worked in restaurants for years and thought it was way too close and strange. Took away from the experience tbh and I love this restaurant. I don’t want to pay $300+ for a meal where I feel like I am in the way of the servers trying to close out tabs and put orders in.
