The Beatrice Inn is the embodiment of an underground New York chophouse that has been redefined by Executive Chef & Owner Angie Mar. In its rich history, this restaurant has served as a speakeasy in the 1920s, a neighborhood Italian restaurant for over 50 years, and a night club for Hollywood A-listers. Now, under the ownership of Chef Mar, The Beatrice's meat-centric menu focuses on dry aging, cuts from around the globe, and delicate combinations of fruits and herbs.

The place is dope, sexy, rockstar. Went with two new clients. We ordered the caviar and the oysters to start. The duck was a hit and a true show table side as the flame tickled their fancy. It made their night. The table was perfect. the service was on point. And the place was cozy as hell.

The food is off the charts! All four of us loved everything we ate. My only negative comment is that the wine list is extremely overpriced and there are limited good choices under $200 for red wines.

Our group enjoyed the visit to The Beatrice Inn. The wait staff great and very informative. The frozen Manhattan was outstanding I would suggest it. The wine list was very good and we picked a good one with the help of the sommelier. The food was great and we will be going back. @brothersdinewithwine.

I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our evening at The Beatrice. I had been waiting a long time to finally enjoy the food and atmosphere. From the minute we walked in we were warmly welcomed. While waiting for our table we had a cocktail at their very quaint but super cool bar. Once seated we were taken care of by at least 4-5 different people from waiters to servers to sommelier. All lovely and accommodating. The food was outstanding. Oysters to start and then entrees of Braised Oxtail and Venison & Trotter Pie. The dessert of Bone Marrow Créme Brulée was everything I had hoped it would be. Miraculous! The only disappointment (not really) was that we did not get a chance to meet Chef Angie Mar. It was my birthday dinner and boy, that would have topped the night off. We will return!

Oh yeah...the music was fantastic!

The food was delicious and creative. The ambiance was very nice with candles, a fire, palms and a painting of a zebra. The service was a bit slow, most likely due to the amount of people. The waiter was very nice in helping me surprise my boyfriend with a birthday dessert. All in all, a great evening!

The ambiance of this place was unreal. It was gorgeous. I loved everything about our meal besides the meat. I grew up eating a filet or tenderloins and that was no where to be seen on the menu. We had the 60 Day Dry Aged Cote de Boeuf which was very fatty and too rich. I wish they had other options for meat for single servings. The other food we had was amazing though. The yellowfish crudo was probably one of the best things I have ever had and the Tartiflette, Sauteed Onions, Sage, d'Affinois was unreal as well.

Our family of five adults went to celebrate our son's birthday. We ordered Oysters, Battered Dates, salad, Lobster Thermidor, the roast Duck Flambe and the Cote de Boeuf. The oysters, dates and salad were delicious. However, the lobster and duck were in part so undercooked only portions were edible; the lobster tail was eaten but the claws were mush (the manager apologized, assured us it was not spoiled but merely undercooked and took $70 off the Lobster charge of $195); the duck breast was served sliced and cool mediumrare while the remainder of the bird not broken down was badly under cooked. The Cote de Boeuf was ordered medium rare but came out closer to Black and Blue without a hard char. The cut was way too fatty and lacked any substantial rib eye to be considered a quality cut of meat. The manager and support serving staff were polite, and the sommelier was helpful, but our waiter was cold and absent the entire evening. He took our orders, brought us a desert menu and gave us our bill. He was not present when dishes were served, nor did he once check to see if things were to our liking, cooked properly or if we needed/wanted anything. When there were issues with the food we had to flag down the support servers at other tables. We had two bottles of wine which we poured by ourselves the entire evening. While the cost of the evening should not dictate the service being provided, it leaves an especially bitter taste when the bill exceeds $1,000, the food is not properly prepared and no one is attending to you or making you feel they're glad you chose their restaurant to dine in with your family on a special occasion.

Steer clear of this place other than for the bar. Have been going here for years and always loved the ambiance, the dining room, and the sensibility of this place, but was always somewhat disappointed by the food. I guess I should have known better. We tried it again (last time was two years ago) and I was shocked at how badly Beatrice is doing. It was a Friday night in the fall and this place was more than half empty, a death knell for a New York City restaurant. Most of our fellow diners appeared to be bridge and tunnel folk — further evidence that those in the know stay away. The waiter kept trying to upsell us very aggressively on ordering more food, to the point that I was uncomfortable saying no. The menu is challenging. There aren’t that many choices and everything LOOKS very appealing but is just not done well in reality. We ordered a “savory plum tart” that was billed as being done in a crust that’s made with beef fat. What we got literally tasted like a low sugar plum pie with a side of arugula dressed in Parmesan. It was laughable. The entrees were even worse. I had a $45 venison shepherd’s pie that was totally over cooked, over salted, and had none of the complex flavors listed in the menu. Others at my table ordered meat dishes that were incorrectly done and tasted like cheap diner food despite the tony pricing. Our cocktails, which mind you ranged from $18-23 for “classic drinks” like a martini or a Manhattan, Iacked the finesse one expects from such an establishment. I am never, ever going here again and telling all of my friends to stay away. I look forward to the day this place shuts down and a new management team and chef can make it right again. Shame.

Restaurant had an interesting look and layout to it. Food is incredibly rich, though tasty. Was surprised by how many dishes were meant for two or more people. Had a very large wine list, yet seemed to be out of a lot of the wines listed; waiter even warned that we had to order from the sommelier because of how many were out of stock. Experience was ultimately a let down after asking the somm for guidance on a second bottle in the same price range as the first. Ended up being close to 70% more expensive. He felt he had properly explained it, but we begged to differ - he ultimately left the bill as it was with the consolation of lackluster dessert wine for the table. Unimpressed with the outcome based on how pricey the meal was - would not look to return.

Simply put, The Beatrice Inn reflects their desire to nourish not only one's appetite, but the part of you that longs to be cared for, to be loved. The cuisine is well thought out, and execution was nearly flawless: everything was seasoned appropriately, even the texture of salt was never felt. Each step in the preparation and cooking process was done with an experienced and watchful eye and seasoned to layer flavor and salinity in the right measures, and the depth of each dish was wonderful. Dry-aged Cote de Boeuf with Prawn Butter, IPA-Battered Dates with Smoked Boar, Squash Amandine, Champvallon de Tete: all unbelievable. The Tartiflette was almost infuriatingly delicious.

The above paragraph could be mistaken for a fussy place with tiny forks, and whispers in the dining room. Grab some friends - a party of four or six would be perfect for the menu - and get ready for a chance to see a Chef and restaurant in full swing, and only getting better.

We absolutely LOVED everything we had at the Bea! We started with Rhode Island oysters, langoustine, and veal carpaccio accompanied by the perfect white wine, and they were delectable! We then had the 90 day dry aged porterhouse and the duck flambé for our entree and still cannot stop thinking about both! Chef Angie and her team provided excellent hospitality and made us feel very welcome. We even came back a few hours later for her famous fried chicken at the bar! We highly recommend the Beatrice Inn and will definitely be returning!

The Beatrice Inn is not for the faint of palate, wallet or appetite. This is an unabashedly in your face, meat and potatoes, huge portions place that charges accordingly. If you happen to be a fan of the 4 pound Porterhouse and other such steak house monsters, you will love this place. There are also some interesting dishes not found on other menus, in my experience, but all massive in size, scaldingly hot when they reach the table, and very pricey. Of it's kind it is great, but for normal, modest eaters who don't need heavy seasoning on everything, this will definitely not be your place. Within those caveats, though, Beatrice Inn is worth a visit. Just be prepared to spend large amounts on virtually everything (including drinks, where virtually everything pushes $20 per drink.
