Excellent as usual. We’re not vegetarian but have even gotten vegetarian dishes the last few times because they are so delicious. Speaking of not vegetarian, burger is so good. One of the best Caesar salads I’ve ever had. Awesome space, energy and service.

The food is healthy and delicious; the decor is lovely and if you arrive early, the noise level isn't too bad.

Wife wanted to eat healthy. Food was tasty. Excellent service. Waitress was great and there was a little miscue (not really anyone’s fault) and the Manager was very attentive.

I was very disappointed that they had no vegan options on the menu. When I asked if I can pick off the lunch menu they said no that starts at 3 or 4.

We went for Sunday brunch. It was very busy. We enjoyed mimosas, which is always nice. I ordered the spicy green enchiladas which were good but not memorable, my husband had the waffles and said they were very good, they were gone fast so they must have been. We also enjoyed our cappuccinos.

Excellent food and service. We went to celebrate my sister's birthday. The waitress brought our a piece of chocolate cake with a candle at the end of our meal. What a surprise and a wonderful treat.

Our meal was great and so was our server and the rest of the staff! Our satisfaction continued throughout the night as we were responsible for bringing dessert to our dinner party. We brought a variety of Beatrix goodies from the coffee bar. Everyone at the party was raving about how good everything was and how it was too hard to pick a favorite!

Definitely won’t dine there anymore! I ordered steak. It was over cooked or better burned!!! I complained, they did another one! The second one was kind of undercooked! 🙄I almost chocked because the meat was hard to chew and swallow! It took me forever to eat, because I didn’t want to give any hard time to anyone and I was there to enjoy not to complain! They didn’t charge me for both to be honest, but that’s not the point of course!!! My husband’s steak too wasn’t any better! Our friends’s meals were just OK!

Food and fun here. I always have a great meal. Try the gazpacho. Best ever.
Thanks also to Angie a great waitress. Anticipated all of our needs(and then some). Thanks to her for making a special meal extra special. She is a gem.

child’s meal delivered 15 minutes before adults’, so she was done before we’d even been served; at least two of five dinners overcooked (salmon, short rib); charged for “birthday” dessert we hadn’t ordered. waitress was definitely stretched beyond her capacity... not a stellar performance

We had a very positive experience with brunch today at Beatrix. Service was attentive: didn’t have to ask for things like water or coffee refills...our server took care of us.

We went early on a Saturday morning. Our service was very, very slow! We sat on the patio since it was a very nice day. And there were not many people in the restaurant at all at 9AM. However, service was very slow. Had to wait a long time to have any one come and ask if we wanted coffee, then had to ask for someone to take our order. We have been here before. Food is very good! We must have caught an off morning.

From the moment we came into the restaurant, we felt rushed. The booming voice of the host / manger saying “Welcome” from 40 + feet away almost made me want to turn around and leave.. Our server, while pleasant, did not seem to listen or understand that we were trying to have a relaxing meal. While the food was very good, I felt rushed. While we would have normally stayed for an after dinner drink, we left because we were so rushed.

i normally love the food here, but the swordfish was fishy smelling and the dish had little flavor and the dish was ordered without quinoa and arrived with quinoa so when it returned with only vege as requested, the fish and vege were coated dripping with oil. Not a recommended dish

Not sure what to say about this restaurant. I think it is supposed to be a healthy restaurant but there are things especially the desserts that are way unhealthy. The food was mediocre. I had the ravioli and it was so bland. No taste to it at all. My friend had a chicken dish that was a very small portion and bland as well. The waitress was not attentive and it was not busy.

Not sure I will go again. My friends said they would not go again.

We love Beatrix. This was our first time visiting the Oak Brook location. And we loved the music so much! Perfect for Brunch! My husband went basic with eggs and bacon. My daughter loved the avocado toast and oatmeal. I ordered the breakfast enchiladas and they were AMAZING! I added avocado and sour cream to finish it off. YUM!! I love that Beatrix offer Oat Milk at their coffee bar. I had a Chai with oat and it was good but luke warm. My huabands mocha took very long to come out and when it did, it was also barely warm. Of our total experience, that was the only issue we had. Our server was great and very attentive. I definitely recommend Beatrix for breakfast, lunch or dinner (try the turkey neat-loaf!!!)

We sat outside on Sunday afternoon. It was very pleasant. The staff was very good as we sat for awhile. We had theater tickets at Drury Lane at 2:00 pm.
The menu is large with many good choices. Our coffee and water was refilled promptly
with kindness. I do think it was lovely.
