We loved this place. The food was great - tasty, well prepared and “modern”. We loved the fluffy lemon pancakes, the chia pudding (and I am not a chia fun), eggs shakshuka, and the pecan French toast! The hash brown potatoes could be improved but the bacon was well done! We visited one day and simply had to go back the next day before we leave Chicago. I recommend it!

We had the chopped salad with salmon and the waitress recommended the cauliflower salad, both were delicious. I live in the neighborhood and come to Beatrix often and I've never had a bad meal.

What a disappointment! I'd heard about this place & was in desperate need of a good meal after some bad news at the hospital but our meal was so sub-par. We got the halibut, which was more expensive than it was on the printed & displayed menus, and it was bad. For nearly $30, I would like a fair & consistent price with a bit of creativity rather than a sad completely unflavored fish on top of wilted greens & sad tomatoes & soggy croutons. The humus we ordered was bizarre & the salad merely adequate. I'll skip the rest. I did very nicely try to share our concerns with the woman at the front desk who was not at all interested. We will never dine here again. I wish it could be the kind of place those of us suffering despair at the hospital in the same building could come for comfort & good food but it is not. I mentioned it to some other folks waiting for patients in surgery before I went & they politely said they'd already experienced it & wanted other suggestions. I wish I'd paid attention to their kind but honest assessment.

Food is always good at Beatrix, but the service is spotty. We had reservations at 10:15am and weren't seated until 10:50am, then we had to wait 15 mins to order our food, then waited quite a bit for our food. Once we received our food, things were good.

Food was great as usual. The service was very slow and the server forgot we wanted one dish wrapped to go. This is not the usual level of service so maybe she was having an off day.

Working at Lurie Children's Hospital and Northwestern, Beatrix - Streeterville is my go-to for bringing prospective researchers and doctors for a decent lunch. It's also a great spot for a competitively priced and appetizing dinner (If you're looking something hearty, go for the Wagyu Pot Roast). I'm a firm believer that simply made dishes with the best quality ingredients are often the most delicious. Beatrix appears to follow this way of thinking as well. Really, anything on the menu is pretty good, but I'm partial to the Prime Burger. If you want dessert, go for the caramel pie... it's kind of amazing.

I selected Beatrix for brunch because it has a dedicated Gluten-Free Menu. Unfortunately, the gluten-free entree I ordered arrived at the table with regular toast (I noticed that the toast looked too hearty) but the mishap was quickly resolved by attentive staff. When it came time to order desserts for the table, I was informed that a couple of my selections couldn't be guaranteed gluten-free since they shared the same case as the rest of the baked goods.
People with celiac disease can't just take a chance that something may or may not be cross-contaminated. I encourage Beatrix to take the necessary steps to ensure people with celiac disease can feel confident in ordering from a menu that is clearly marked as Gluten-Free.

Great food, good prices and good service but the music was so loud you could barely hear the person next to you. This is a trend in restaurants and stores these days -to blast music but wouldn't go again because of it.

We had to wait for service at our table. Once noticed, we felt very rushed for the entire meal. The presentation of the food was quite lacking and the quality fair. The wine list is very average to below average. Overall, it was not a positive dining experience, and I will not return. It is disappointing, as the first few times I went to Beatrix it was quite good.

Beatrix- Streeterville is conveniently located to my place of work. The food is average quality but expensive and a little skimpy. The service was very good and they accurately delivered our order. The place is very open and loud.

We had an incredible dinner here on a bachelorette trip! The restaurant was quiet (around 8pm), and the dinner, proscecco, and desert were all amazing. The caramel pie in particular was excellent. I just had a salad but it was filling and delicious!

The hostess was rude and as we told the manager if she is going to complain to coworkers about a customer don’t do it in front of the customer. The server was slow. We did not get everything we ordered, some of the food was cold. When we complained to the manager about the hostess he was less than helpful and hid attitude was a tone of whatever. So in response to his whatever attitude, we will take our business elsewhere and tell people not to go to this particular Beatrix.

In the 3+ years I have been going to Beatrix I have noticed a marked decline in service, particularly the Streeterville location. The food, which is usually perfectly acceptable, takes excessively long to come out, it's often no longer warm from the kitchen and on four separate occasions the "runner" who brings the food drops it on the table and rushes away leaving me sitting at the table with no silverware to eat the food. Two nights ago I sat for over 5 minutes with a plate of food in front of me, no silverware and no server in sight from whom to request the silverware. When we finally caught the eye of our server to request the silverware, she proceeded first to go back to the bar to retrieve a drink for another customer, refill the water glasses of three other customers and only then did she go get the silverware for us. By that time my food was barely warm. I doubt I will return to any Beatrix but certainly not the Streeterville location.
