What Insiders Are Saying
More comfortable than a MINI Cooper, Beatrix is a casual and versatile restaurant in River North.
Took a bit to get a table even though we had reservations. Food was excellent but took a long time to get drinks
Appreciated gluten free options for one of our party.
Hopin' gathering place for millennials - eclectic menu, generous and innovative starters and salads, but was left rather un-whelmed by the entrees. Fun though - no regrets.
Let me just say that everything wasn't up to the usual dining experience. Has always been one of my favorite places. Everything was a bit off on Sunday. Will certainly try again.
Great as always!
Great table next to open window perfect place to catch up with friends
The food was delicious and our server was extremely nice and attentive!
Terrific restaurant. A definite candidate for a repeat trip. Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts and Chicken Meatballs were outstanding. And the Cauliflower Steak....a culinary delight. Eduardo, our waiter, was terrific and very attentive.
Loved the ambiance- very welcoming and fun. Serving staff was great!
Went for dinner and had a great time, the waiter was great and recommended the Local Burrata snack item as an appetizer and it was amazing. Food was outstanding and an overall good experience.
We came in with an infant. We were both casually dressed. The restaurant provided food for the refined appetite in a casual setting. The bartenders craft amazing cocktails.
Good food great service excellent location
Great brunch! I really enjoyed the scrambled eggs nacho bar- different, fun and fresh. The fresh juices are amazing and the flavor combinations of the entrees is just outstanding. I'm looking forward to returning in the near future.
Great brunch! Really enjoyed our meals, especially the brown sugar bacon, Bloody Mary, and a delicious lemon angel food muffin.
Energetic vibe with a noise level low enough to have a conversation without yelling. Tables are far apart enough to have private conversations. Food and cocktails are absolutely great. Waiters are good but obviously loaded with tables (almost seems like there are only 2-3 waiters for the entire restaurant on the busiest nights). We saw the waiter constantly working so it’s not like they’re standing around. He also gave great recommendations and clearly knew the menu well. I feel like this is a common trend at any restaurant in this area. The restaurant walls are basically huge sliding doors. I went on a day where the temps were in the 90’s. Be aware of the tempature and dress accordingly. Staff is friendly, inviting and professional. Reservations are seated promptly. You can be seat without your entire party being present. This restaurant location is a must visit for dates.
We have enjoyed Beatrix before but this visit was disappointing. Although we had a reservation, we were placed in the table near the kitchen with a trolley of food/dessert trays backed into our table -- literally between two of the guests. We would have even borne this but the service was distracted and unsatisfactory.
Slow service, but great food and atmosphere! Try to sit outside if you can
We went for a birthday brunch. The service was good. The food was good but we expected
The food wasn't to our taste. While the ingredients were fresh, the sauces were poured with a heavy hand and were very sweet. The salad dressing was cloyingly sweet. But if you like sweet, heavy sauces, this will suit, and the service and atmosphere are fine.
Awesome late morning breakfast, had the shakshouka & cauliflower grits. Beautiful presentation and delicious!
Great food and quick service!
Our server seemed to have forgotten about us. This would perhaps be okay to allow my table to chat, however when our food came there were no utensils on the table. We had to wait until our server resurfaced, however a manager walked by and we flagged them down for assistance. As for the food, eh.... the pecan french toast was the special for the day, it was tasty but everyone neglected to inform us the serving size is comparable to a loaf of bread, it was HUGE! Most dishes are a la carte, but the french toast should be paired with eggs at least and it can be chopped down to size.
Waitress was great. Moved our seating to an open window seat which was really great for people watching. Wasn't wowed by the food. I had a simple dish of grits, brussel sprouts and cauliflower - tasted like my own home version so I wasn't expecting much anyways. I will come back. I enjoyed my mimosa.
Beatrix was enjoyable for dinner although not particularly memorable or special. The food was very good although a bit uneven - some dishes excellent, others just ok. Service was pleasant and capable. It was busy and energetic, although without any edge. So in general, fine. I would go back, though not seek it out particularly.
The skirt steak was tender and delicious.
The ambiance for lunch was upscale but casual, would definitely go back for the ricotta stuffed ravioli!
The food was delicious. Many unique choices. Coffee & drink selections are great! Servers were very friendly.
Brunch was great, as always. Food always arrives together and hot. Fresh takes on familiar recipes with lots of vegetarian options. I have never been disappointed. But do yourself a favor and make a reservation, otherwise you will wait...no matter the day of the week.
Fantastic food, great atmosphere, best brunch spot in Chicago
Absolutely nothing special; very nice waitress; wouldn't come back.
Menu selection is perfect for any group’s taste. For breakfast, you can get traditional or your tastebuds can explore eclectic. The cauliflower grits were excellent as was the quinoa cakes. Perfect amount of food, served at the right temperature, delivered in a timely manner. Drinks also fun. My daughter ordered a drink called banana Joe (I think). It tasted like the best adult chocolate milk!
We love everything about Beatrix. We had our rehearsal dinner in the River North location. This year for our one year anniversary, it only seemed appropriate my husband and I ate here for lunch after exchanging vows. We enjoyed a lovely meal outside, and eventually our in-laws joined and had a meal as well. Our fantastic server gave us a complimentary caramel pie slice (delicious!) and we got cookies to go.
I recommend Beatrix to everyone I meet looking for a great meal and superb service. Keep up the stellar work!
Group of 4. Reservation for Sunday at 1 pm. Seated promptly. Server pleasant and attentive. Food was excellent. Definitely would go back again when in town.
Food was excellent! I had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was perfect. My brother got the crusted chicken, and his was equally as delicious. My only complaint was that the restaurant was quite warm. However it was an atypically crazy hot day in Chicago, so maybe their AC system was struggling more than usual.
I made reservations on open table, and we were seated as soon as we arrived.
Food here is now bad. This was one of our favorite places. No more. It was soo hot we both dripped sweat the entire time.
totally enjoyed m time spent there with my friend, celebrating her birthday.
The service both at the host and the server was slow and less then ideal - to say the least.
I always have pretty good service here, the staff is friendly and fun. I am becoming a regular here.
A special treat, unique choices and ingredients, relaxing atmosphere for conversation.
I quite like like Beatrix, but it seems that each time I go to this location, it is louder than the last. The volume of music is not a help. The location at Fulton Market is better, but it is also slowly going up the volume scale. For business lunches, this is annoying.
