I took my girlfriend here as a birthday treat, but we left less than impressed. Our meal was certainly above average, but no dish stood out as particularly memorable. While our main waiter did a passable job, he was neither as responsive nor as refined as one would expect given the Beaver Club’s high reputation.
The Beaver Club is well maintained and comfortable, but did not feel as elegant as I was expecting. Notably, the dining room lacked the appealing golden glow seen in the main photo here on TA, and seemed darker and stuffier. The restaurant’s website and reservation page “recommend” men wear jacket and tie, but this dress code is not enforced, so if you’re aiming for a posh evening out for a special occasion, be warned that there’s no guarantee that the tone of the place won’t be lowered—as it was on the night we went—by other diners dressed for a backyard barbecue rather than a semi-formal restaurant dinner!
Including wine and tip, our dinner totalled over $425 for the two of us. For less than this you could go all out at La Chronique, where the cuisine is light years ahead.
