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.

Excellent food and very attentive service. Special shout-out to our server, Lucas B., who went out of his way to accommodate one of our guests who is allergic to gluten. He let us taste-test a new gluten free dessert (coconut cookie filled with ice cream) that was fabulous.

I have been to Beatrix for brunch and dinner previously, and I am disappointed to see the drop off in the quality of service. It took us about 30 minutes to receive our cocktails and they arrived with our meal, which is never a good start. Once we finished our meals we waited about 20 minutes and the waiter still had not come by to check-in. As a result, we had to get up and find him to request the check. Even then, we still had to wait another 10 minutes for him to bring the check. As for the food, the lemon pancakes are incredible but many of the other items (fries and breakfast potatoes) lacked seasoning.

Food tasted good, but I felt sauce for Kung Palo Brussels sprouts was too heavy, too sweet.

Reliably great food, and good service. The only negative is the front host staff, who exude an attitude of doing customers a favor by seating them, even with a reservation. That’s a bit off-putting.

The ambiance and food at Beatrix was outstanding! We selected the Restaurant based on the reviews, the menu and it’s proximity to where we were going to be. We absolutely loved it! The food was excellent and there was a nice variety of dishes to choose from. I would definitely recommend Beatrix to anyone!

Both our entrees were good though the Chilean Sea Bass while tasty was a small portion that left me still hungry. We shared a slice of caramel pie for dessert that was to die for.

Great place for brunch! The food was great - very impressed by their spicy Bloody Mary and burger. The burger was very juicy and their homemade gardinera was delicious! We also arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation and were able to get seated right away.

Don’t get me wrong if it weren’t Chicago, I’d say it was great. But since there are so many other restaurants at the same price point with tastier options, I would say it’s a solid good.

We went with a grumpy toddler and our server was so patient, kind, and understanding. We sat outside to enjoy the weather and location. The patio is lovely and not too crowded. I had the caesar salad and ravioli. The salad was a huge portion and I should have just ordered that. The ravioli were delicious but very nontraditional. They were more like pasta sheets wrapped around cheese (but I'm not complaining). The tomato sauce that came with was so fresh and delicious. The meal seemed slightly overpriced, but maybe typical for that area of downtown Chicago.

This was my second visit. The first was incredible so I had to bring my friends and husband to see for themselves. However this time we got stuck in the bar area even after requesting standard seating, waited 40 mins after sitting to place the order, then when the order comes everything is cold. At this point we all just wanted to leave. I felt terrible that after I hyped up the place it ended up being awful. Note our server had way too many tables. Management should have figured out a way to get him more help. Also I suspect the food would have tasted miles better if freshly served.

Ordered the turkey meatloaf. The potato’s were cold and coagulated the meat was cold and grainy. They replaced it with a kale salad which used to be delicious, but it had stems that we’re unchewable and overdressed.

We go to Beatrix every time we get to Chicago. This was the first time I had the short rib, which was nicely fork-friendly with rich flavors. My wife had the turkey meatloaf, which is in a lovely vegetarian gravy and we split a straight-A salad, Gill of avocado. Service was attentive and capable.

Food is consistently good. The place is looking a little rough around the edges. Basically need to have someone make occasional rounds and straighten things up. There is hospital and tourist traffic here, so it gets busy sometimes, but that’s no excuse to let things get messy.

The food is outstanding but I had a reservation and had requested to sit outside. There was no table waiting for me even though I had reserved it a month ahead of time. I had to wait 15 minutes and even then I wouldn't have been seated except that I went up to them and told them I didn't understand why we weren't seated when there were open tables outside. The waiter was rather slow but the food was excellent.

There’s a reason why Beatrix in Streeterville is always packed and why I keep returning: Fantastic service, wonderful ambiance and outstanding food! I made reservations in advance (highly recommend) for lunch post half marathon on 7/22. My friends ordered the eggs, bacon and hash browns and I ordered the mushroom and quinoa burger. Every meal was piping hot and absolutely delicious! I did not know what to expect with the burger but I was so happy that my server recommended it-It was one of her favorites and now mine as well! As always, I will return!
