Beatrix - River North
Beatrix is open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night offerings, as well as brunch on Saturday and Sundays.
All pastries, breads and sweets are baked in house daily. Some of our favorites include Sadie's Crunch Cake, Honey Butter Cinnamon Buns and Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Our coffee and tea program will showcase two iconic Chicago roasters, Intelligensia and Metropolis and specialty offerings like Nitro, Bulletproof, and more!
Always reliable. Try to avoid on the weekends as the crowds are just horrible
The food was very tasty, when your finished eating you feel full but not uncomfortably stuffed.
Great service and food
We had a great time and were well-accommodated as a group of 7. Food and service were on point.
Had to wait for our table when we had a reservation. Other than that good food!
Food was excellent and fairly priced, drinks were great (loved the boozy banana joe), place was packed (we were seated at 11:05 for a 10:45 reservation). Overall a pleasant brunch even with 2 kids.
Coffee was amazing and the food was great too! We had a party of five and agreed that the chicken tinga and enchiladas were the best dishes. The cauliflower grits were a bit over seasoned for my palate. Presentation was wonderful and great ambiance at the restaurant.
Perfect spot for date night with a small but diverse and generally healthy menu so there’s something for everyone.
Service was very attentive. Food was well prepared. Pleasant ambience.
Everything was great from the moment we walked in, super friendly hostesses. Wait staff was attentive and gave good suggestions and spent the time to explain the menu. Food was outstanding as usual. Will buy again definitely when in the area.
Love the Chicken Bebe for an entree and the hummus for an app!
Delicious and our server was the best!
One of my favorites in the area. Always good, fresh, seasonal food prepared in creative ways.
Super nice people. Efficient service. Good, healthy good.
Food is unmatched, service was prompt. Chairs were trash and uncomfortable and it’s a small space so it felt cramped. Definitely recommend it for the food. Bring your big wallet though, it’s pricey. $120 for brunch for four
Great brunch in the down town area. Highly recommended. Booking essential. Pear, pineapple and ginger juice - a pleasantly delicious surprise!
Excellent food and atmosphere!
Brunch was fantastic! The fresh juices and unique breakfast options were all fantastic
What a cool place! Food was delicious, service was perfect and the ambiance was so fun!
In town for the marathon. Beatrix was highly recommended. Delicious food, great service! Will definitely be back next time!
There was a line and wait to check in, even though we came with a reservation. Once seated, the service was good and al dishes met or exceeded expectations.
They brought the soup and entree at the same time and said we should have asked them to be brought separately. Ridiculous. There wasn’t even room at the table. My entree was cold by the time i finished the soup
Thoroughly enjoyable experience!!
We had 10:30 reservations for a high top table. We were seated fifteen minutes late, at a low top table. No explanation as to why. Our server, Joey, was slow, inattentive, non-communicative and ineffective. We have never had a negative experience there before. We will give it another try, but there's lots of competition out there.
Very simple, nothing special or fancy. Just simple, good food, at fairly average city prices. Very loud and energetic, good selection of drinks and coffees, lots of great pastries as well. Worth a go once in a while but none of the food stood out in any way.
Great ambiance in busy River North where there are many options. Good selection for vegetarians. Downside is there are no beers on tap (why not a local brew at least)? Large space seemed to make getting and changing a reservation easier.
This is my second time at Beatrix and the experience has been the same...I think Beatrix is a lovely restaurant with a progressive menu. The ambiance is lively and the patrons sufficiently diverse. The issues I had arose from a service perspective. I thought our waiter was patient and pleasant, but for both the appetizers and the entrees, the food "check backs" came way too late. That meant that we couldn't get the extras we were going to order until the apps had pretty much been eaten and the issues with our entrees went un-checked. There was no proactive clearing of the table to prepare for the five entrees which meant when they came there was a harried exchange to get things off of the table and staff seemed annoyed with my guests for not handing them utensils and plates quickly enough. Please note it is not a guests' job to assist staff in clearing; it is a courteous jester when it happens, but should never be expected. Empty glassware stayed on the table literally till the end of the meal, which for me is a pet peeve. I am being so detailed in this review as I think Beatrix can be a great dinning experience if more attention to detail can be payed. I might be a bit more finicky when it comes to service, but I am not unreasonable.
I’m so glad that I discovered the River North gem. Food and mocktail was awesome. I went for lunch, and was surprised by the quality of food and creativity. Service seemed to be a little rushed and impersonal. But, as a fellow server, I can understand how it can be. BTW, order the KOUIGN AMAN pastry!!! DELISH!!!!
Great spot. Breakfast seems to be their strong point.
Nice menu. Good service
One of my favorite places. Always great! I love that they have gluten free options. Service is always great. They’re very accommodating. Love love love!
Delicious dinner Saturday night at a cozy window table. Loved the filet mignon pot roast and tasty honey ginger chicken meatballs. Desserts were equally delicious. Highly recommend!
I think the food here is just ok for dinner. For downtown Chicago there are so many other options at the same price point. I consider this more of a lunch spot. Also, stood at the coffee bar for a long time after dinner to order a pastry along with another person. Several folks were behind the bar working but no one acknowledged us or took our orders so I left.
Everything was great but the check took over 30 min to come and our server wasn’t busy enough for it to be an excuse.
Great gluten free menu for those requiring it.
Beautiful day. Beautiful food. Perfection in ambiance and service.
Quinn was an amazing server.
Fantastic food at Sunday brunch. All from menu. Perfect eggs and omelets. , hash browns. Chicken sausage too sweet. Very busy but other than on loud side nice ambience. Because we were celebrating a birthday they offered a complimentary dessert of our choosing. Vibrant Chicago feel.
The location is great. However the food was on the bland side. I had an issue with the bill which was corrected when I brought it the servers attention.
