Great restaurant and food!! The DJ was amazing, didn’t feel rushed to eat my food. A very good vibe. 5 stars!!!
Really delivered! Food was great and the ambiance was unmatched. My friends loved it.
Restaurant was amazing. Cool atmosphere. Food was awesome.
It was great from the moment I walked in, I came in early for my reservation and was sat. The tortilla soup dumpling was delicious everything was delicious except one thing overall 9/10.
Great food and cocktails
It was anniversary and we requested a booth. Many where open for hours. And couples were put into those booths and the manager did not allow for us to sit there even though it was empty. Horrible service.
My daughter graduation. Our waitress Ray was amazing. Food was phenomenal
It’s always unique dining experience. The staff is super friendly and the food is always good. If you want privacy, sit upstairs. If you wanna be in the midst of everything, sit downstairs. Just remember, you get what you pay for.
The occasion was a mix between everyday and special occasion, as we were going out for dinner before going to the Van Gogh exhibit. Dinner turned out to be as much enjoyment as the show. Ambience is always great, crowd was having fun, noise level stayed very comfortable, food was creative and high quality and our server was delightful. I thought the price was very reasonable for the breadth of positive touch points.
Had our First Date here , It was amazing , I will Definitely be back.
amazing place, amazing food and vibe there !
Love the concept of the pawn shop entry which through a door opens into a bar and a large dining space. The setting is moody and sophisticated with many seating options. The entire staff was attentive and friendly- good cocktails, great food, overall wonderful experience. The lighting was a bit dark and the music was loud, and it was a little pricey, but consistent with being in NYC. I do recommend!
Great vibe, delicious food. Might be loud for some people
Great atmosphere & amazing food! Highly recommend!
Great server Justin !! Also loved how they wiped the table every course.. it was very satisfying and felt super clean
We heard a lot about Beauty & Essex prior to our trip to New York and were looking forward to visiting. We made reservations in advance and paid 40 USD to confirm.
The ambiance, the entrance, greeting of the staff were all pleasing however the limited menu options were followed by the poor taste of food with ingredients that were not fresh such as salmon or oysters, salads immersed in salt, smallest size portions even for tapas (supposed to be sharing for two although includes 3 pieces and we were suggested to add an extra and pay extra).
Staff (in black uniform) do not double check if we were done with dishes and went ahead and cleared them, for exaple you might still enjoy the sauce/dip on the dish. Staff were also unaware of ingredients of some dishes.
House salad was changed after apologies, when we informed the manager that it was too salty. Then again, my main concern was the freshness of seafood; I am from the Aegean Coast and those dishes were definitely not made with fresh seafood.
This place is absolutely pricey for the level of quality you get.
What a place!! It was a perfect evening ! Highly reccomended
The hosts were incredibly RUDE. the server was phenomenal and made everything worthwhile. The host almost made me and my entire party walk out she was not friendly at all. We had made reservations in advance and obviously paid per person on the reservation and she gave so much attitude and was just so incredibly rude to all of us. However, the server was phenomenal and wonderful.
Really enjoyed the meal and the vibes. From the bar to the meals. Beautiful place to celebrate any event with your significant other
I was expecting better quality of food, and more food options.
Great cocktails and ambiance though.

Our waiter was nice explained everything. Food was cold for the price paid. D
Amazing amazing amazing. Great service, delicious food, and awesome cocktails! Worth the cost. Definitely try the soup dumplings.
I originally gave this restaurant a great rating. Come to find out they charged me extra. It has been 2 weeks now since my visit and I have been going back and forth with this place trying to get my money back. This place is already extremely pricey as is, and they still charged my card way more than the bill. If you want to come here, USE CASH! So you don’t get your money taken and still not returned like me.
As always never a missTAO group rocks it. A wonderful welcome from the girls at the front desk fabulous cocktails at the bar wonderful meal in an out fabulous vibe good people good music always a pleasure food impeccable always a wonderful time enjoy enjoy I’ll see you soon probably this week thanks again bless
We had the absolute best experience at Beauty & Essex. We were seated at a big table in a comfy booth. Darnel, our waiter, was magnificent. He checked in multiple times and suggested the most divine menu items. We didn’t want to leave!
This place is gorgeous and the food is spectacular. Service was spot on too
Ordered 9 different dishes for a table of four. Got to try a little of everything. Staff kept our drinks full, plates clear, and questions answered. One of the best dinners in New York. Their cocktails (the gimlet especially) and the beef Wellington are not to be missed! The soup dumplings are a great way to start off the meal!
My first date here was amazing ❤️
Waited 55 minutes for a table. Had a reservation with a request for main dining room. Celebrating a birthday and guest of honor had never been to B&E. They tried to put us upstairs but I said I had requested main dining room. Told us a table was opening up - guests paying their bill. 55 minutes later we were seated. Very loud wait in the bar area. Loud music when finally seated at the table. Only plus was lovely waitress. I think this place is overrated. Much better food and ambiance in other downtown restaurants
Great time with a great friend
Great place. Felt rushed, but considering how packed the place gets, understandable
Beauty and Essex is always one of my favorite go to restaurant. The ambiance is to die for and the food is amazing. Oh! let me not forget, the customer service is on point. I would definitely recommend this chic restaurant.
Had a wonderful experience! Our waiter was fantastic and on point with everything. Loved the food, chefs are talented!
Was beautiful and great food!
Julia was very helpful and accommodating us while there were no seats in the dining area
Truly a must-eat for so long & still unbeatable...thumbs up 🔝👌👍🥰
