My wife loved! That means everything to me. Music is still awesome. A bit loud (conversation that is). Definitely a hot spot for women. Some men. Very unique place. I highly recommend it!

The service was a little slow, the waitress forgot about our appetizer. I didn’t feel as though the restaurant was that crowded either. The food was delicious, but my Brussels sprout leaves came out extremely dry and almost burnt looking. Atmosphere was wonderful though. I’d like to return to try again- especially one of the cocktails!

I found the host staff and seating process poor. I made a reservation for 12:45pm and was told that tables are being cleaned for a table. We waited and there were at least 4 tables available. The host staff said those tables were for wait list and walk ins. So they prioritize the walk ins verse people that make reservations. The host staff turned people away saying it was a 2 hour wait when in fact there were tables. After we got seated the manage said the reservation was for 1pm, so that is why we waited. This was false! Overall food was good but hostess staff a bunch of idiots and robots!

Loved the food and had great service!! Disappointed with table. Even though we had a reservation we made several days in advance we got put at a shared table. Would have preferred our own table or at least the option to not get seated there. Felt like I was practically on top of the stranger next to me And was uncomfortable. Next time I will request to not be at a shared table.

I've tried a few things off their brunch menu and could eat the Cauliflower grits and eggs everyday! The egg white and pepper sandwich is also amazing but I dream about the apple pancake. The quality of food and beverage is outstanding.

Friendly server but slow with refills, checking in. Decor is very inviting and comfortable. Salmon was overcooked, kids disliked the chicken tenders (complained of a gritty texture). The gf chocolate cake was very rich and the portion is huge- great to share. The coffee was about as bland as you can get.

Really nice place. Food was very good. The ambiance is lovely. Seated next to a loud baby which wasn’t very enjoyable. Then the parent let the baby out of the high chair and let the baby run around the restaurant. It was awful seeing the servers having to go around this kid. I’d go back but would make sure I wasn’t seated next to anyone with kids.

I had long been anticipating the opening of Beatrix in Oak Brook. The menu in its other location was intriguing and I waited to dine there to surprise a friend for his birthday with a stellar meal. It didn't happen. The descriptions of the entrees we chose were much more appetizing and appealing on paper than in actuality, although the prime burger was pretty good. I just expected better. The ginger, pineapple pear juice could have had more zing to it.  And the fries from Kennebec (or whatever) were just okay. The best part of the meal for both of us was the angelfood chocolate frosted cupcake which we split. Our server, Liz, I must add, was very good and we enjoyed her and some others in the staff immensely. Unfortunately, we really don't have any desire to go back here.

The hostess needs some tips on how to read the guests. We made reservations for 2 people and when we arrived ( we were late due to a late meeting) we were seated at a communal table. 5 other people were seated at the table with an 8 inch wood divider separating us. Please note there were many vacant tables that were available throughout the restaurant. The last thing a couple wants after long day at work is to sit next to 5 people and cant help but hear their conversation! I could see if we did not have a reservation and the restaurant was busy, but it was not and we made a reservation. The explanation I was given is that the table are assigned for the wait staff to each get a turn. PLease -- get it together.

Everything was good, but it would have been nice to be offered a piece of bread or a cracker with the salad. The table we were at was too wide and we could not easily converse because the restaurant was noisy.

Why do they give the worst tables to two women dining together? It was a week night, I had reservations and when they took us to the crappy little table, I politely asked if we could get a larger table that was not next to the server station. No, the larger tables for 4 were reserved for 4 people.....hmmmm, when we left, there were at least 2 tables for four with only two people (male & female couples). What gives? Not very nice Beatrix

The server was polite and attentive when taking and delivering our drink order, but wasn't seen after taking our entree order. My special request was not fulfilled for my entree and I had to flag down a server to send it back, but our actual server re-delivered my entree on a new plate but still covered in sauce. Asked for a manager but they never came to the table and had to ask another server to tell our server we needed the check. We were still charged for the incorrect entree which wasn't touched. Inattentive service ruined our birthday celebration.

We went for breakfast and although the inside is super amazing, we chose to eat outside because it was a beautiful sunny day. We finished up and then went inside because the ambience is so great! Can’t wait to go back and try for dinner, or stop in to the coffee bar some day

Perhaps my group was of the wrong generation to totally enjoy the restaurant. It is geared toward patrons under the age of 25 that only eat grain based goods. If you enjoy not hearing what anyone at your table is saying - this is the place for you. Have to mention Beatrix has the #1 uncomfortable chairs ever sat on in a restaurant. Do recommend the pot roast sandwich and the prime burger which is beef.

It was a fun experience. I like the fact that the portions were normal rather than the king size everyone else seems to serve. The music was a bit loud and the noise level high but it was still very nice.
