Fine cuts
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.

Hostesses were very kind; seated us on-time at a nice table. Bartender outstanding - excellent efficient service as we had s drink before sitting. Tough yo keep our waiters attention; the evening dragged a bit. Very nice evening overall.

Fantastic ! We planned an earlier Valentines dinner, and the entire spread did not disappoint! The braised oxtail and the bone marrow creme brûlée are a must! Everything else was still incredible. Impeccable service and excellent cuisine. Surprisingly affordable for what it was. So worth it 👌🏽

Ridiculously overpriced and loud, obnoxious try hard crowd. Felt bad for the waitors because it's packed and people are rude to them. Definitely not worth it.

I found the whole thing pretty off-putting. When you live in the city, you see a lot of pricey things. I just didn't see anything that justified the obvious premium. The ambiance is nice, but not that differentiated. The cocktails were over the top. The service was sometimes amazing and other times horrible. And for the price, I expected the food to be mind-blowing. It wasn't. We ordered a $40 lobster dish which wasn't even remotely fully cooked. To their credit, they removed that from the bill, but how it got out of the kitchen in the first place, I'll never know. Net-net, they seem to be pretty full of themselves and they seemed to attract an equally ostentatious crowd. Maybe that's the point? To be around other people who think nothing of paying $200 for a piece of chewy steak?

Really nice restaurant especially the back room with the fireplace. This is an expensive steak restaurant with other main course options as well. The waiters are professional but can have a little bit of an attitude. We didn’t realize the price point until we saw the menu. Nothing wrong with an expensive meal providing the food quality matches the price. In this case it does. I would recommend this restaurant for the level and quality of it's food. Desserts were ok, but not as good as the food.

No prices on drink menu so surprised my cocktail was $32 when the bill around. Nice restaurant and quality food but prices overinflated in a neighborhood with places that are cheaper and just as good.

Went for an anniversary. Great ambiance in the back room where couples and parties are seated. Fireplace, beautiful period style and oil paintings on the walls. Front rooms are noisier and more crowded. We went because of the oddball menu items...classic/exotic French country dishes (eg beef cheeks, braised ox-tail with prunes, etc) . These were just so-so which disappointed us. Very pricey wine list. Most people seem to go for the shell-fish and gargantuan steaks which are brought out for display before ordering. The waiters can deliver lengthy lectures about the sourcing and style of the various oysters and cuts of beaf making the whole evening into an entertainment, if that's what appeals. We might go back with meat-loving friends interested in spending big bucks on superior cuts of beef and high-end wines in a transporting environment.

This was our 4th visit to Beatrice Inn and wow has it gone downhill! The food was dry, bland, and cold. Fortunately the manager took it off our bill. To top it off, our waiter was so rude he ruined the entire experience.

I’m so disappointed to write this review, as this restaurant is among my absolute favorites in New York City. I will not be returning.

Took 30 minutes to order wine because they would only let the Somm take the order and I had to ask for him to come over several times. After spending over $500 we went to leave after what was mostly a good experience and find out my hat, coat and all of its contents had been stolen so I was forced to stand in the rain waiting for a cab. They didn’t Comp dinner and I was told a manager would call me they never did. So I called and over a week later never got a call back. It’s outrageous the service as this place has fallen off a cliff. I go there enough as to have been recognized by staff but they will never see my face again.

We had 3 for dinner. Great Cocktails are a bit pricey but cocktails are amazing, off the charts. Great, mixlogists. I had Botanist Gin - their signature with fresh juniper berries/fresh herbs, the Sherry baby consisting of spiced rum, lavender sherry, hazelnuts, benedictine and walnut bitters , and we had a smokey drink wih mezcal. We had the duck flambee with cherry sauce and potatoes and the duck breast was fantastic, smokey and tender , however, the rest of the duck .eg. legs, wings, thighs were totally inedible. For starters we had duck torchon and fried dates with wild boar and both were excellent. For Sides we had squash which was excellent, but haricot vertes which were basically raw and chewey.

I would recomend this place again, and i will go back , but i will definitely speak with the staff to ensure there are no issues with any of the dishes.

We came for the unique dry aged steaks. I was tempted by the 180d dry aged with whiskey but we were with my daughter so it was a bit much. But the 90d dry aged porterhouse with truffle butter was out of this world. The ambiance was old school, walking downstairs into a cozy atmosphere. I would most definitely go back again.

Highly overpriced confort food. Very rich and heavy. 60 day meat was not tasty at all. We did not get the wine we ordered. And there is an air of snobbism in the restaurant. Unless you are from upper east side you are not special. And they cannot wait for you to leave. I had very high expectations. Booked it from London. Interesting scene though.

I read about Angie Mar in the NYT and promised myself that my next trip to NYC I'd eat at The Beatrice. I'm from Texas, grew up hunting, love meat and a good Manhattan. It was a great meal and anytime I can order rabbit I do. My only regret was that my dinner companion did not care for duck so we stuck to the rabbit vs both.

I'm coming back in the spring and can't wait to see what that menu will be.

Thanks loads for a great meal and our waiter was excellent also.

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 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.
