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 food and service were really exceptional. Can’t wait to go back. Lots of comments are regarding the price. You can moderate your spending by making smarter choices and planning ahead on the menu a bit. I was impressed that the sommelier gave an excellent wine recommendation in my price range without hesitation and with no up sell. Ambience and everything else was great.

Delicious food for meat eaters in a lovely dining rom. The service is excellent however the prices are way too high. Over $20 for a cocktail and admittedly an aged piece of beef and fir 3 it would have been $750.
I am thrilled to have been there but probably my last time.

We arrived at 7:17 for a 7:30 reservation and were curtly told that we would have to wait at the bar (which is really too loud for conversation ). When we were taken to our table 10 minutes later, the dining area was all but empty. So it is unclear why we were made to wait next door. The dining room itself is quite handsome with a sedate and old school wood-paneled ambience. However , as the room filled up, the volume of surrounding conversation and music increased, and this significantly impacted our ability to chat. At the outset, our waiter informed us that portions were large, but when we (three people) were proffered a nearly 90 oz (2.5 kg) piece of meat for nearly $800 , we were somewhat taken aback. Subsequently/consequently we each elected smaller individual plates, all of which were very tasty (although still pricey). It’s worth noting that all dishes are much larger than the average portion (this includes starters and main courses). The accompanying wine was nice, and the wine steward was one of the few members of staff who was notably polite and pleasant. The bussing/water staff were also attentive and solicitous. The rest of the restaurant employees ranged from offhand to supercilious. We felt as though we were wasting their time and distracting them from more important things they had to do. All in all, in spite of good food, the dining experience was marred by lackluster service exacerbated by extravagant prices. We can only hope that we caught the restaurant on an ‘off’ night.

Absolutely delicious food and first rate service. We had the porterhouse for 4 —outstanding flavor and cooked to perfection—and a side of alliums with fois gras —decadent! Wine list is outstanding —we had a 2007 Brunello that was simply mouthwatering. The decor and vibe are elegant but fun. All around great experience but it’s breathtakingly expensive!

We had a cocktail in the bar to begin, which was great. Good music, nice hostess and friendly bartender. I have been to the Beatrice Inn before a few times and have always had a wonderful meal, but this time I was very disappointed with the dinner experience. I love the cozy atmosphere in the front dining room and bar. At first, I had requested a booth, so they seated us in a booth in the back dining room which has this strange pallor - almost florescent or the wrong kind of halogen lighting, not warm. We requested another table in the front dining room (much more of a cozy warmth) which they accommodated. Happy and appreciative with that, we looked at the menu, and saw that there were several, 2-4 people entrees, butcher block items, etc but few single entrees. A few of our party have food allergies, so one had to order separately, she only had the choice of Branzino or crab. (The tall waitress was, unfriendly, unconcerned with the lack of options and seemed too removed to care about our questions, and never checked back with us the rest of the dinner). My friend ordered the crab, which was sauced, but you had to use a crab cracker and get your hands in it with all the sauce. It was a lot of work for little crab meat and hands that were covered in a creamy sauce. The sauce and crab were tasty, for what it's worth, but never again! My friend and I ordered the steak, prime rib medium rare, and half of that dish was rare and inedible! Seriously, I had to spit out many pieces (not a good look for a nice dinner) because it was raw, and I couldn't even chew it down. The carrots were good. The sommelier was helpful. The wine list was very good. The cocktails were perfectly tasty. The dessert chocolate truffles were dark, almost bitter, a little messy because of the cocoa powder, but really amazing! Dinner was not cheap, as expected, but definitely no longer worth the extra expense for the experience! Too bad because it is a great neighborhood location.

At this pricepoint everything should be impeccable and wasnt and it didnt seem that anyone cared. No need to ever return. I regret going in the first place. Food good but not THAT good!

An amazing experience here at Beatrice Inn. We ordered the flambé duck, a dish for 2-4 people as well as the kale salad and roasted carrots. Definitely enough food for 4 easily. The duck did not disappoint, beautifully smoked and roasted, flambéed at the table and then carved and served with an incredible cherries ju. Service was amazing (water constantly being topped up, thorough explanation of the menu and options available to us), and the playlist was awesome! The manager even gave us the Spotify playlist as he noticed how much I was enjoying the songs. I cannot recommend this place enough for a special occasion or a night where you are looking for a unique dining experience!

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.

I should have sent it back. my fault for putting up with such crap.
