Wonderful time welcoming my daughter home from Europe and celebrating with Al Fresco dining on a beautiful Chicago summer afternoon. Heart healthy food options; attentive and very pleasant service (Briana); and consistent quality from the great folks @ Beatrix, Streeterville. Thank you

I dine at Beatrix often so I am familiar with their food. It is delicious. However, on this occasion, my Crispy Kale Salad was made with 1/2 other leafy lettuces including Romaine. What a disappointment. I know it can be better so I will give it another opportunity in the future.

We sat outside. It was very noisy and the people walking by were rude. Could use a little more “barrier” maybe planters with tall colorful grasses?? Food was excellent. Wait staff great too!

The restaurant is strategically located. We were seated on time. Our server got our drinks started on time as well. However the breakfast took over 30mins to arrive and caused us much frustration. I had to go and make a fuss with the front desk and then we were saved by the arrival of the food. I’d say the shakshuka and the avocado toast were nicely done. The sausages were flavorful. However the slow service could be improved upon for a better experience.

Though it's located at lobby level at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the food here is fresh and creative and always good. Service is sketchy. Our server was friendly but a bit standoffish. It was my granddaughters 13th birthday and she ordered a Shirley Temple. It came in a plastic cup with a lid. I get it that the bartender doesn't know the age of the person receiving it. When we ordered a second, I asked if it could be put in a regular glass. The waitress answered that "it's free,so...that's how it comes." The right answer was , "sure". The food was very good - burgers are juicy and flavorful. My favorite is the turkey meatloaf with sweet potatoes in it. Moist and delicious comfort food. The service was a little bit pokey as they got busier, but we were in no hurry. We always come back for the food. Easy location too.

After a less than favorable review about our dining experience on May 30, I was contacted by the manager and given discount coupons in hopes we would return. The experience on June 28 was much, much better. Food and service very good! Obviously we were flagged and given special treatment. I wish we had been able to return to the restaurant and see if service had really improved.

I went here for a business meal, and everything was great. My whole party was happy with their meal, and I ordered rare steak that actually came out rare! yay! My only minor complaint and reason I probably wouldn't go back is I feel everything was a little over-salted. It competed with the great flavor of all the dishes. My coworkers did not find everything overly salty, so that may have just been me.

We made a reservation and the host seemed a little confused when trying to seat us, but we just had to wait a few minutes until he could get it together. The atmosphere was very lively, but not oppressively noisy so that my companion and I were able to have a pleasant conversation without shouting. My companion has recently developed allergies to certain foods and forgot when she ordered her salad. Our server, Yelena B. quickly offered to have the kitchen correct this mistake (even though we are the ones who made the mistake when ordering) and she replaced the salad with one that was more suitable within moments. At the end of the meal, she brought my companion a fresh-baked cookie which was an amazing gesture almost as an apology (again, we are the ones that made the mistake). This was an incredible example of exemplary customer service and guest satisfaction. The funny thing is that just a few days before, I had an experience at a different restaurant that was nothing but mistakes and poor customer service on the part of the restaurant. So basically a few days later I experienced the complete opposite when dining at Beatrix. Bravo!

Delicious food! I had the avocado Benedict, and I must say that it was the perfect dish! The service was super friendly and helpful, and surprisingly fast for the size of restaurant and amount of patrons. Next time we’re in Chicago, we’ll stop by again! 😊

Made reservations at Beatrix for brunch during my Aunt’s bachelorette party weekend. We arrived about 10 mins prior to our reservation time. Our table was set and ready, and we were quickly seated. The ambiance was perfect. Great decor and even better music. Our waitress was delightful. She waited on us happily and was quite patient with some of the more picky and indecisive eaters of the group. All-in-all, it was a fabulous dining experience. Can’t wait to visit again when I’m in the area.
