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.

I hadn’t been to Beatrice in over a year and I had forgotten how good it was. Excellent food, excellent service and excellent ambiance. How can you go wrong in an historical speakeasy of NYC!? Absolutely will be going back. I encourage you to share plates.

The pate to start the apps was delicious. The branzino was excellent as it is cooked in a pastry, the pork chop was awesome.

Btw, the bar scene was hopping and full of energy, but not obnoxious. Will definetely also make this a meeting place for drinks into the future.

The wait staff truly made this a memorable night for our family. The food and cocktails were unique and delicious. And the experience was fun from start to finish. We're still talking about it! Maybe the best NYC meal ever, all things considered.

Very good food and service. But we have been placed in a tiny table at the back end that hardly fit two and we were three. Also why to put such a loud music in the main dinning area? We could hardly hear each other.

charming place and waitstaff was attentive and knowledgeable. the tuna app with truffle was amazing. unfortunately the $85 piece of beef w blackberries could be the worst steak I have had since my mom's london broil when I was a kid. first thing that comes to mind is "shoe leather" , my jaw hurt from chewing up to two days later. I should have sent it back. my fault for putting up with such crap.

The menu is overpriced for what it is as well as the wine menu. The prawn cocktail for starter, for some reason included only one prawn, which was in addition very overcooked. Stake was ok, but the prawn butter on top was too overpowering, so did not really get the taste of the stake.
Before visiting we have studied the website and some other reviews, but in reality the food combinations were a disaster. So much so the two tables that were adjacent to us began talking to us wondering if we had the same impression of the food as they did, which was very poor indeed.
If you are going to charge the top prices for a very average location, you need to be very good and BeatriceInn was, unfortunately, the worst by far experience and taste in comparison the other restaurants we had visited on this trip from first class experience and taste in Locanda Verde, Balthazar and Freeman's.

I was a little late (20 minutes) but called ahead to warn that we were stuck in traffic. When we arrived the hostess was mildly rude, telling us that they’d need the table back in 70 minutes. I asked whether 90 minutes is the standard slot. She replied that 105 minutes is - effectively penalizing is for being late. The service took 2 hours, and the food and service were wonderful. But the end of the meal was uncomfortable as we expected to be asked to clear out. We skipped dessert.

Super cool space. Food and cocktails are excellent, although you are definitely paying a premium for them. Expect to wait, even if you have a reservation - although the bar might just make it worth it.

The food and service were very good. My only compliant is it was my wife and I’s Wedding anniversary and other than saying congratulations nothing was done beyond. It would have been nice gesture would have been offered a complimentary glass of champagne or a desert. Just a little show of gratitude on a special day for us. Everything felt very mechanical down to the hostess who didn’t smile or say thank you when we left.

We had such high hopes and while the service and venue are great, we found the food disappointing - and while we didn't expect subtle flavors - masses of seasoning overpowered everything-too much truffle oil, too much salt. Pork chop was sinewy and hard work to eat even for a devoted carnivore, the burger was overwhelmed by the onion topping- 90's dance music created a confusing vibe. Not worth the effort

The Beatrice Inn charges $50 a person if you cancel within 24 hours of a your reservation, they refuse to seat you until everyone in your party arrives, although if you ask again they'll agree to do it -- but they warn you if they do you will have to order for the entire party when you sit down. Of course, the noise is so loud at 7 pm on a week night you can't hear at either the bar or in the dining room, so it doesn't matter. Once seated, the service is excellent and with the cost of the food it should be. A celebratory dinner for four, with cocktails and wine, was $600. The food is very good. Being able to hear one another speak would have been good also. You would have to be either a masochist or a pretentious foodie to return. Too bad they've gotten carried away by their press.

Very buzzy. Portions were too large, particularly the pork chop platter. Waiter warned that it was a large pork chop, but didn't mention that various pork pieces (very fatty) covered a 12-inch round platter. My braised pork shoulder was good as was the salad. The potato dish could also serve a family of 4-5. Wasting food at those prices felt bad, so it did color our experience. Friendly staff, attentive. Maybe offer some half portions or consider that not all diners can enjoy that much food--it kept us from trying desserts or lingering over coffee.

Absolutely fantastic! The food is rich and the portions are generous. Beatrice Inn offers many dishes which are scaled to large groups so bring some friends. Everyone around us seemed to be having a wonderful time too, we even chatted with some of our neighbors.

Be sure to linger at the bar over a cocktail before dinner. We found the bartender quite charming during our visit and the drinks themselves were phenomenal.

We’re seated 40mins past our reservation and not even an apology. Server was more pushy than a dancer at a strip club. Ordered a $150 bottle of wine and told him we weren’t that hungry but still tried to push the seafood tower and the tomahawk steak. Told us to hurry up because the kitchen was closing. After the meal, server interrupts us in the middle of a conversation and brings over a cheese board and tried to push us to get cheese and dessert. This is why I stick to Danny Meyer restaurants.

Fantastic meal! The duck might be the best dish in NYC right now. This is a very expensive restaurant. The duck was $120 (for two); one of the steaks was $14 per ounce (and was 44oz). Wine list has only a few bottles under $100 but the markup is only 120% or so over retail. So it is the rare restaurant that is both very expensive and really good value.

Special kudos to the sommelier, who has assembled an excellent wine list full of small production gems (and also had the good cheer to deal with my difficult dining companion).

Chef thinks she’s a Michelin star. Meat was completely rare (beyond any cooking technique standards) and Chef/staff made a huge fuss to have a small piece sent back to cook. Note that not a single fish was available on the menu that evening so even if it was against all Chefs’ standards to cook medium rare, they should’ve politely opened an exception.
