    Our server was so wonderful and went out of his way to make my kids feel special and accommodate our food allergies. We sat outside which we thought would be better with the kids and not quite as loud and it was exactly what we were looking for.

    The food and service were top notch. My water was never more than half empty. Dirty plates were removed promptly. The food came out quickly so we could make our show and was delectable. Jimmy our server was spot on with his recommendations. We will definitely be coming back.

    Beauty & Essex is one of my favorite dining spots! I took my mom here for dinner last night before we saw Mean Girls at the Pantages and we had the best time. Our server Nicole was super friendly and very helpful with food and wine recommendations. My mom is gluten free and was excited to see that the GF menu had all of the dishes from the regular menu that she wanted on it. We ordered the kale salad, scallops, and tuna sashimi and ate every bite — so good!! The atmosphere is also really wonderful here — fun and lively but also intimate. It was all in all a very fun night!

    I came here with a couple of friends that were on a work trip from Nashville. We had a great time. They each raved about their espresso martinis, and I got some sort of cucumber Mock-tail that was pretty good. We got the kale salad which was awesome. My friend got the street corn ravioli, my other friend got the grain bowl, and I got the salmon and roasted broccolini. My salmon was over cooked, but the butternut squash and fried avocado garnish made up for it. My friends loved it, so all in all it was a success. Total vibes aesthetically on the interior.

    I recently dined at this restaurant and was impressed by the delicious food and excellent presentation. The tomato soup grilled cheese and Margerita pan pizza were particularly noteworthy. However, the service was not up to par. Despite this, I highly recommend trying the white chocolate with berries for desert. Overall, it's a great spot for a tasty meal, but be prepared for subpar service.
