DISAPPOINTING! First visit here was great so expected the same this time. Received very very rare burger after ordering medium and it took forever to get server to come and take it back. I made eye contact with her asking her to come over and she proceeded to count money and take care of 3 separate checks at next table BEFORE coming to see what I needed with my meal. My 2 friends were completely finished eating before my burger order was corrected. They brought back the same plate, with same cut-in-half burger, bun and condiments. Little apology even mentioned. Everything was over salted as well. It'll be a LOOONG time before someone can convince me to go here again!

Like the space, good place for outdoor dining. The breakfast was average at best -- undercooked scrambled eggs and bacon and served lukewarm (as was the coffee). Might go back for drinks but definitely not breakfast.

I was really looking forward to taking my family visiting from out of town to brunch at Beatrix, but was really disappointed with the whole experience. The service was terrible and the food wasn't anything special. My salad was missing some of the ingredients it boasted on the menu. My partner's egg dish was super bland. I only usually share positive reviews, but am sharing this because I felt like I was completely mislead by the professional reviews of Beatrix.

Pretty disappointing after seeing all of the great reviews about this place. We went for brunch and was sat at a 2 top against the wall in the middle of two other 2 tops. It was so crammed my boyfriend and I had to climb over the arms of the chair just to sit. We couldn’t move our chair back because there wasn’t enough room. The food was decent but very small portions, we ordered avocado toast to share as a starter (literally took 20 minutes and was one slice of bread cut in half) and then both got entrees and still left hungry.

Service was really crappy as I had to keep waiting for the waitress; she would check in with us every 10 mins with food stuffed in her mouth. If she was taking a break, she could have at least assigned another waitress. The food was bland and the wrong orders came out twice. Really bad experience at a restaurant that was once my favorite.

Excellent and fun. The manager Kendall Zusman is awesome!!!! Very attentive friendly, constantly walking around helping asking for feedback. Takes ownership of her duties. Great asset to Lettuce Entertain you!
Brought us a sample of Lemon Pancakes unsolicited, which I had decided not to order because I don’t like lemon on sweet things. Prefer my pancakes plain. After trying the pancakes I am hooked and have been telling everyone about them.

After eating at the other Beatrix locations I had high hopes for this location, I was disappointed. We had a reservation, but still had to wait 20-25 minutes. This wouldn't have been so bad, but there were parties of the same size getting seated immediately. The hostess called our name to be seated, then turned and walked away. I stood there for another 10 minutes before she returned. Once we were seated the staff situation didn't improve. It took an exceptionally long time to have our drink orders taken and even longer for them to arrive. While we ordered the fries as an appetizer, we were still eating them when they brought the food - personal pet peeve. The food that came out was ok at best. My meat was over-seasoned and quite tough. Probably not giving this location a second chance.

I'm hoping they were just having a bad night, as the other Beatrix locations are always spot on.

The food was fantastic. We both had the chilaquiles bar which consisted of chicken, chips and cheese. The sides were salsa verde, pico de Gallo, guacamole,cheese and sour cream. I think I’m missing a couple of items. It was delicious. The only thing that was lacking was our server. He brought us plates once and otherwise when we needed him two other times for a fresh plate and the bill we had to hunt him down.

I have been to Beatrix's other locations many times, but the Fulton market location left me wanting more. The check in was awkward and service was a bit slow which resulted in all our orders coming at once (entrees and appetizers). My food was generally mediocre.

Drinks were amazing- Strawberry Basil Punnet and Ruby Soho. I had the slow-braised short ribs which were very delicious, and my boyfriend had the wagyu pot roast filet mignon. His dish was very similar to mine in terms of tenderness of meat. I loved his horseradish sauce and used some for my short ribs. We were seated next to a loud table but other than that, our experience was fabulous!
