It was my son’s birthday. The food was excellent and they brought a complimentary dessert that was also excellent. The server disappeared for long periods of time though. Other than that, we’ll definitely return to Beatrix.

I met my daughter and grandson at the Beatrix at the Oak Brook mall for lunch. The restaurant was decorated nicely for the holidays. Our server stopped by frequently to refill our water glasses, but our meal took so long to be served:(
Not good when dining out with a two year old.

It was my second visit and I think the last one. I find the dinner menu really underwhelming. For a vibrant place as it is, the menu is too small, repetitive, unimaginative, does not change with the seasons. There was only one special offered on a Saturday night - a soup, really?? The entrees offered have been the same ever since they opened last year - if you didn't find something exciting on thet menu that first time there is no reason to come back. I felt like I was in an upgraded Corner Bakery that serves drinks. The interior is great but one does not come to the restaurant to admire the space

We had an amazing brunch here for my birthday. I ordered the Pecan Praline French Toast from the specials menu, my wife had the cauliflower and grits, and my son had waffles. Coffee drinks were outstanding! Our server, Jennifer, was outstanding. We don’t usually go out to brunch too often but with this Beatrix close by, I think that’s going to change!

Have had breakfast there numerous times. This is at least the 2nd time the food was cold. It's very frustrating and when seated in the bar area no one really follows up after the food is delivered to the table. Probably will not have breakfast there again unfortunately.

I've had both lunch and dinner at Beatrix. Both meals were fresh, creative and nicely presented.
Lunch was noisier than dinner. The layout/design offers opportunity for more intimate/less
noisy options. The bar area is very welcoming and also comfortable. Wait staff eager to please.
I'd return often.

We suggested Beatrix for a lunch get-together with friends because I’ve been there a few times.each of us ordered a different meal and we were well pleased with the quality of the food. Service is consistently great; our server welcomed us, explained the menu layout to our guests who had not been to Beatrix. She took care to make sure our food preferences (allergies/dislikes) were noted on the order.

I’m always pleased with the vegan/vegetarian selections because I have more than one choice for my meal.

Bakery and coffee bar offer many tempting selections.

The food was wonderfully fresh and scrumptious. Great service. It was a girlfriend brunch, so we were in talking mood and it was a bit noisy that time of day, but that's to be expected for Sunday brunch. We enjoyed it tremendously and we'll be back!

Lively, young restaurant with an interesting menu. We had the cauliflower appetizer which was very good ( should have ordered another one!!). It was a bit noisy, but still a good restaurant and I will be back again.
My husband had the salmon which he said was very good and I had the filet mignon pot roast. The meat was tender and delicious. We did bring our own bottle of wine and were happy to hear that the corkage fee was only $15.00

Loved the decor, music and environment. Our server was a delight as was any additional server bringing items to the table. The food was absolutely delicious. Our server bought us a drink we inquired about and they gave us an additional dessert because we were undecided about our picks! It seems a little higher price points, but I would definitely go back!

A very contemporary restaurant. Food was ok nothing outstanding. Probably a good place to go for coffee and snack, large area with sofas and chairs to sit and have that. Dining area is very hustle bustle and VERY noisy.

The ‘A’ salad was aptly named - well blended flavors and textures. Miso salmon good, miso sauce ordered on the side ( salty ), and potion size not that large for the price.

Our server was excellent. Food choices supposedly healthy but are carb heavy and limited. Juices are not healthy! Restaurant is large enough to sit families closer together so that adults only don’t have to be surrounded by kids.

Love this place. Food is great, cocktails are spectacular, coffee and pastries are excellent, their famous caramel pie is like nothing else, the service is good, the waiting area is very comfortable (yet with reservations the wait is never long.) Also, importantly, they seem very accommodating of my significant food allergy. (And the Manager is quite kind and efficient on that front.)
