Reviewed March 26, 2012

The scallops are a fine choice, the only thing I've ever ordered here. The menu says spicy, but the chef will cater to your taste.

“Best Fried Calamari in Town”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

While the entrees are very flavorful and tasty, the fact that it is fusion could mean that it won't be the best sushi, the best pad thai, the best orange chicken that you've ever had. Nothing is quite the specialty, but all the food is done well. I have never been disappointed with the quality of food that I have had at Beyond. The peppered fried calamari and their crab cakes are amazing! They also have good beer on tap (I'm not a fan of liquor so I can't speak for mixed drinks).

While the ambiance can seem a little cool downstairs (gray walls and very open), the decor promotes a subdued feeling which I feel heightens the sense of taste, smell and hearing, allowing more of the focus on to be on the food, drink and your company than what is happening around you. If you need a bright, warm setting, see if they will seat you upstairs where the walls are brighter and the spacing of the tables is more intimate (make sure you are away from the windows if it is winter as the space is a historical renovation that is not well insulated on the exterior).

Now the restaurant does turn into more of a nightclub after 10, but the owners go out of their way to make sure the clientele are respectable in dress and behavior.

“Good heavens. . .”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Pretension plus something thrust on a plate that one is expected to eat and that is about it. It opened with such fanfare, and quickly devolved into the desperation restaurants succumb to before they close.
