The Infatuation
7.7

More comfortable than a MINI Cooper, Beatrix is a casual and versatile restaurant in River North.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

this was our first time at this restaurant and we will certainly go back when we're in Chicago.... the service was excellent, the choices for anyone following a keto diet or Paleo Diet were excellent. It's A Beautiful restaurant and they accommodated my request to have the perfect table for my friends and I to visit

Our waitress was amazing! She was so knowledgeable about the menu and gave really great descriptions of the entrees. My friend and I were also catching up and took forever to order and pay, and she was very accommodating and attentive. The oh my caramel pie is so rich and delicious, a must get!

Been to Beatrix for breakfast which is awesome...this time for dinner- not so great. Food was really average. Seabass portion was very small, pot roast was ok-mashed potatoes got cold really fast. Would not recommend for dinner.

consistently outstanding. my go-to for brunch or lunch in the city with friends or co-workers. great non-alc + alc drinks. plus the pastries and desserts are amazing. (The cinnamon roll with frosting is amazing, but tough to get if you're not there early). comfortable, clean, hip atmosphere, but often crowded. a definite favorite spot!

I think the atmosphere was quite charming and the menu had a lot of variety. However, my food was just okay, which was a disappointment. I also felt that our server was not paying attention, he mixed up our orders on several occasions. Lastly, we had a reservation, and when we arrived, the table was not ready for us. We had to stand to the side for almost 10 minutes, and the hostess did not really seem that attentive.

although it was really busy, our reservation was honored right on time. I had asked that I get the bill - not my guests. I filled out a form before coming in and the bill never reached our table! it worked PERFECTLY. will definitely return. and service was outstanding given how busy the venue was.
