I had the chicken bebe and don’t know what was the problem with it but it was horrible, tasting sour or something weird, I almost couldn’t swallow it. But since I was very hungry I almost finish anyway. But I should have listened to my instinct, 2 hours later I through it all out. It is so sad because I have never had any problem at the Fullerton or river north locations.

Good food but the room was so loud, plus the music was deafening. The result was that you could only talk with the person seated to one side of you, not conducive to a Sunday get-together with friends. During the week, meeting a single person, seated at a small table away from the loud-speaker.....Beatrix is a great spot. Sunday morning is a different story.

We always like Beatrix, but on this Sunday I don't know why it took about 10 minutes for us to get our first glass of water. Later, during the meal it took asking three times (including the second time to a man who seemed to be in some sort of management position) over 15 minutes to get more water. I don't know if they were understaffed, but it was an issue to have spicy foods and nothing to drink.

Note that for some reason, I am unable to click more than one box in some of the sections.

Service was excellent, loved the Pinot Project wine. Food was very good. I found the table and chairs to be a bit sticky/perhaps not quite as clean as I typically like them.

Overall excellent/very good experience!

I love Beatrix. ALWAYS consistently pleased with my experience at all locations and both brunch and dinner are equally good. This is a great location for large groups and parties. We went on a Sunday following the Chicago Triathlon and it was packed, mostly due to a large party reserved in the back. But this place is always packed so make a res. I had pre-arranged to order a bottle of Prosecco to toast the victors in our group and the restaurant was more than accommodating. Additionally we had four people in our group cancel last minute and the restaurant still seated us immediately. The food was delicious, per the usual. Food came out warm, fast, and cooked to perfection. Must trys for Brunch: BRAISED POT ROAST & EGG SANDWICH, GREEN CHILI ENCHILADAS, QUINOA CAKES W/ POACHED EGGS, and LIGHT & FLUFFY LEMON PANCAKES.

Made trip to Chicago for long weekend getaway with some good friends. We always enjoy great food together and the restaurant was suggested by one of the couples. Great find! Everyone enjoyed their selections but were too full to be able to have dessert. Will certainly come back.

I love the food at Beatrix and once you're seated the experience is OK. I find waiting for a table at the Streeterville location, even if you have a reservation, very uncomfortable. The space is cramped, no matter where you stand, you're in someone's way and you end up feeling like you're not welcome there. Even with a reservation, there is generally a 5-10 minute wait with no where to go.

We have always loved this place but on Monday we did not get the best of service. There were six of us including two kids. Had a lovely outdoor table but when one of the drinks spilled things went South.

I redeemed cash from the LEY card for half the bill and asked the server to add the remainder for points on my card. I have not received confirmation that this was done and we don't have the receipts any longer-term. Guess I lost out.

Fantastic fresh tasting food! My grandparents loved the flavorful vegan dishes, which were inventive and not the usual boring vegan dishes. The fresh juice cocktails were amazing and well mixed. The server really knew the menu and had excellent suggestions. My family was so thrilled with the whole experience, would highly recommend.
