On recommendation, we tried this out-of-the-way, loud, hip and trendy hot spot. It was okay. Nice touch with the champagne in the women's restroom. The kale salad was tasty, as was the Thai shrimp. Filet was very peppery. I would not go back just to be part of this younger, single scene

Very cool place with fantastic atmosphere, but too shallow waitering we went in and out way too fast. Bill was automatically left at out table with the remark 'whenever you are ready...'

My friends visited Beauty & Essex last week. It's so cool entering a lorn ship before finding 3 floors of fun. Lots of cosy corners, great cocktails & beautiful people!

Walking into the pawn shop, one cannot imagine the size and grandeur of the restaurant just beyond the first door.

It was like reveling a temple and incredibly ornate. Staff friendliness and helpfulness was and the or near perfect.

The food is tremendous...tapas size dishes with a fun and today interesting American take....pricey but worthwhile and worth a second or third visit.

And, the atmosphere was the sales punchline: I will absolutely return as soon as possible.

Downside: a man's stomach is only so big and the selection too inspiring

Me and my boyfriend spent our anniversary dinner at this restaurant that has pros and cons.
Pros: amazing restaurant! everything is studied in details, very kind staff, beautiful location and great food
Cons: food and beverage VERY expensive! everything was finger food and, after have paid TOO MUCH we exit the restaurant with a lot of hungry
Hence, a suggested place if you have a "puffy wallet"!
