Great vibe! We were seated a few minutes after our reservation time but the wonderful service made up for it. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable on menu items. The local burrata and enlightened caesar were delicious. Highly recommend!

Beatrix is always a good choice - if it’s just a quick lunch from their beautiful salad bar at the Market or a sit down dinner the food is always outstanding. Love the glutenfree offerings and how educated the staff is. I had the Cauliflower “Steak” and my friend enjoyed the Seabass. Both of us truly enjoyed our meals. Prices are on the higher end so I save Beatrix for special occasions.

Birthday lunch on a Wednesday - really great food, friendly service and cool ambience. Perfect lunch spot for a bit a classier, elevated feel. Understandably very busy with work lunches.

Beatrix Fulton Market is another West Loop gem! I dined here for my birthday and loved every bit of the experience. From crave-worthy Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts to healthful Hummus to a tangy Thai Chopped Salad, my Vegan self was in foodie heaven.

With fabulous food, quality service, a trendy atmosphere, and a prime location right on the corner of West Loop's Fulton Market, Beatrix is a must-visit.

A beautiful space, with great ambiance, friendly staff and great food. Awesome for brunch and group settings. I cannot forget their awesome baked goods and coffee bar, not to mention a full bar to keep the party going if you please. Enjoy 😊

Our vegetarian granddaughter from Michigan was with us. We wanted a meal that would appeal to her. She had a hard time narrowing her choices. My husband was happy as well with his maple bacon. Sent our daughter a picture of all our licked clean plates.

I've been to Beatrix before for lunch and decided to come back for breakfast. I was surprised by how expensive basic breakfast food was and it was completely underwhelming. The pancakes were bland, eggs were overdone, turkey bacon came out cold, and coffee kind of tasted like Folgers. I'd maybe return for lunch but would recommend finding somewhere else for brunch.

Our second time there. The small plates, which were what we mostly ordered, were great. The only complaint is that there were not more of them. Two main dishes we ordered, cauliflower steak, and the ravioli were excellent. We liked the juices from the juice bar. Limited dessert selection. Even the pastry selection at the "market" seemed limited.
The service is very friendly.

Food was decent. Service was okay (nice waitress but they were apparently understaffed). The music was way too loud for brunch as it made the conversation almost unenjoyable - yelling across the table is not a great way to start off the day. Parking in this area is impossible - definitely valet. Am a loyal customer of Lettuce, but won’t come back to this location for a little while.

Not for me. Service was poor. $32 Sea Bass flavorless. Do your staff a favor and schedule more bartenders on a Saturday night. That way they aren’t annoyed and customers don’t have to wait wait 10 min for a glass of pre-chilled white wine.

My wife’s birthday brunch. Only little issue was another customer’s dog at the next table. Not well trained and took away from a beautiful day and delicious meal. I have two dogs so my issue was this dog wasn’t ready to be at an outdoor restaurant.

Per usual, the food and drinks were delicious! Our server was very nice, but the service was so painfully slow our dinner was 3 hours and not because we wanted to have a very spaced out experience. It wasn’t just our table either... other tables near us had the same experience and even said something to our table. Bummer. But the food and drinks were on point!

We were out with friends and had a wonderful time. We ordered a number of apps: the buratta, fries, brussel sprouts, and the Ahi tuna crudo. The buratta was real nice and the kale pesto was a nice flavor combo with the cheese and toast. The brussel sprouts were cooked perfectly and the ahi tuna was light and fresh.
With so many apps, dinner was lighter: we had the pea soup, straight A salad, the ravioli and chicken meatballs. We split the ravioli and meatballs and it was a perfect way to end the meal. The pasta was bigger than we expected but delicious. The chicken meatballs had a nice sauce on it.
Ordering drinks took a while (they were a little busy) and instead of the dessert menu, we got the bill when we asked for the menu, we didn’t see anything that thrilled us and the waiter told us (probably to cover not giving us the menus in the first place) that he usually gets dessert at nearby restaurants instead of Beatrix. Those were the only negative points of the night but it won’t affect us returning there in the future. Just hoping to get better attention at the beginning and end of our meal next time.

Bartender was fabulous while I waited for friends. Waiter ironically was training a new server, yet service was acceptable at best. Never once did either server take a dirty dish or glass off the table (even though we had occasionally stacked them). Three times the wrong flavor of cocktail was delivered, as if we were not being listened to at all. Had to ask for check twice. Check backs to table after food arrived were very slow. As I said, service was acceptable, but not more — other than the awesome female bartender. She was perfect and then some! Food was excellent.

Having been to Beatrix-Fulton Market only weeks ago for an excellent brunch,Ireturned with friends looking forward to an equally excellent lunch. I was disappointed. Though our Server was personable, he was obviously unable to get the kitchen to deliver our entrees within any reasonable timeframe. It was as if the restaurant was unprepared for the capacity lunchtime crowd. The menu, though creative, offered a minimal set of lunch main course options. If I return, it will be at a quieter time.

Beatrix - Fulton Market has excellent vegetarian selections for appetizers and main dishes. Appetizers are sized for sharing, and a meal can be constructed for individuals or groups using appetizers. The non-alcohol and alcohol cocktails pair well with the entire menu. Dessert options are plentiful, and desserts can be selected from the bakery counter. Outdoor seating is not scenic, but the street is active without being noisy. Reservations are recommended
