Just an awesome dinner experience. My wife and I shared 6 small plates and two desserts. The highlights were the tuna tacos, the tomato soup grill cheese, and the onion soup bites. The peanut butter pie was also incredible. The service was incredible too as was the look and feel of the place. Would highly recommend.

Came to Vegas for my fiancée's birthday, booked his birthday dinner here. Cool spot, top floor of the Cosmopolitan inside a cool retro pawn shop. Everything on the menu is shareable. Drinks are pretty pricey, even the non alcoholic. We ordered the tomato soup with cheese dumplings- AMAZING. Also ordered Thai shrimp, you get 5/6 shrimp, they're good but nothing out of this world. Also got the short rib Mac and cheese- Good also, not enough meat, a few little chunks. Also ordered lamb chops- DELICIOUS. Informed them ahead of time we were celebrating a bday and they brought out a Birthday rootbeer shot, super nice. And we ordered the NY doughnuts which were THE BOMB, the 3 dipping sauces were great. I got the non alcoholic red tea and my fiancée had the berry bubbles drink, total before tip was $160. Pricey but worth it for a special occasion. With tapas you pay more for less food. Overall good, glad we got to experience it. Oh- it's super loud in there but I thoroughly enjoyed the 90s Hip hop/rap/r&b jams playing!

We made a reservation on Open Table and arrived 15 min early. The hostess asked us to wait in the bar. We waited for over 30 min and I approached the hostess and asked about my reservation. She told me we were too early and we will have to wait. I explained we are now past our reserved time and she argued with me...until she realized she had made an error with our name. Finally another 10 min and we were seated. This was the loudest restaurant I've ever been to. It was so loud I couldn't hear my husband or the waiter. The food was delicious. Everything was amazing. Ambiance, decor, food was great but the noise level was disturbing. My husband and I decided to text each other instead of talking because it was so ridiculously loud.

Food is unique and tasty, but portions are extremely small. If you have a group of four, plan to order eight to ten items if you want to fill your appetite. Items are pricey too given their small size. It's worth trying, but not somewhere I would go every time I visit Vegas.

I booked a reservation at Beauty & Essex to celebrate my boyfriend's 30th birthday and I am SO glad I did! We had friends and family in town for the occasion so finding somewhere where all types of foodies (meat lovers, omnivores, vegetarians) could eat seemed like a possibly difficult task. However, after reading some of the previous reviews B&E seemed like a perfect option. From the moment we walked through the pawn shop and into the restaurant we were all immediately impressed. The decor/vibe, presentation, and quality of the food and drinks was impressive and fun all at the same time. \n\nJust for reference, we ordered the following: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Dumplings (AMAZING), Lobster Rolls, Elote Scallops, Garganelli, Basil Shrimp Ravioli, Sliders, and Onion Rings. What was also really nice was the fact that our server was able to 'add' the quantity of items (scallops, sliders, etc.) to each dish to ensure that everyone at the table could get one. The food was incredible and we even talked about wanting to repeat everything into the next morning! We will DEFINITELY be back for any/all occasions in the future!!

However if want to have a conversation with the people you are with I would not recommend. Between the music and everyone trying to hear it was over the top loud. I am all for a fun and energetic room but this was crazy loud. Great food and fun room.

It's a louder darker version of STK. Quite impossible to have a conversation. I would describe it as being at a club having dinner. The food was pretty good so if you don't have any intention of talking, would be cool to check out or just grab one drink. Wine selection by the glass is awful. Cocktails were great!

The food and overall service was amazing. The meal's pace was not. There wasn't enough time between courses to truly enjoy them, with the complete meal being served in around 50 minutes - a pace befitting TGIF, not an outstanding restaurant.\n\nNow, that being said, we will definitely go back. The grilled cheese and tomato soup dumpling, mushroom pizzetta and lobster paella were true standouts.

Beauty and Essex is a beautiful restaurant with excellent food. Unfortunately, we felt rushed because the small plate choices were brought to the table too quickly and we had to keep telling the bus staff we were not ready to have plates removed. would have been better if food was served one plate at a time. If I go again, I will specify that we would want 1 dish at a time. Very loud so hard for good conversation.

Different than any other restaurant I've been to. I was impressed with the food and service. There was some kind of technical difficulties using my Open Table gift card. They called Open Table for us and because of the delay they apologized and offered us free dessert. Not sure if the problem was on their end or open table but I wasn't expecting anything free but the S'mores dessert was awesome. Will definitely be back next time we're in Vegas!

The food is amazing and the service is top-notch. The design finishes are exquisite. Food costs range between reasonable and expensive. My value rating is 'Good' and not outstanding because of the price of cocktails. $17 per specialty drink is too expensive. For this reason, as a local, I would not necessarily return for dinner but rather for lunch when cocktails are not generally consumed.

We had dinner here to celebrate my birthday. Ordered 6 small plates to share .... 2 arrived immediately then after 30 minutes and having to track down our server, we were told it was busy night and kitchen a bit behind. Finally rest of order was brought to our table. Manager then stopped by to apologize and offered 2 desserts at no charge. Desserts were delicious but rest of food was mediocre. We were in Vegas for 5 days and had wonderful food at every other restaurant but Beauty and Essex was a big disappointment.

Food was solid. Only true miss was the cauliflower, which was seasoned poorly. Avocado toast was a winner as was the spaghettini dish. Service was disjointed as our server got sat with a large party. Another server came over to support but they were often not on the same page about where we were at with our meal (tried to take our order twice, etc...).

My husband took me to this restaurant for a birthday dinner. We've eaten at many of the top chef's restaurants in Vegas, but Beauty and Essex was not impressive. We really expected more for the price. The service was not good at all. We were seated for 20 minutes before our waiter came. He was delayed in getting to us because he was dealing with a dissatisfied couple seated next to us. It took awhile to receive our food, and it was cold and not flavorful. This is not a restaurant that I would recommend.

Went here for a birthday party, not only were they difficult to deal with as a large party but the hostess literally told me that we only had our table for an hour & 25 minutes, like we were going to get kicked out of our seats while we spent hundreds of dollars at their restaurant?! The noise level was so loud that it was difficult to talk to the person next to you. The food was good but the steak was so over-flavored with pepper that it's pretty much all you could taste.

We went here to celebrate our daughter and son-in-law's anniversary while on vacation. They picked the location. We were all very impressed with everything about the restaurant. It was a little difficult to visit at first, due to the noise level; but, I suspect that is part of the 'vibe' as an energetic, vibrant 'scene'.

We were so looking forward to this meal. Unfortunately, the overall experience was a disappointment. The pros: the architectural space was ultra cool. There were a few dishes that really shined..beef tartare, scallops. The cons: table spacing was claustrophobic and the noise level was one of the loudest we have ever experienced. The service pushed toward high end wines without reason, ordering without a priority to pacing, just very grab and go type feel. The filet mignon was ordered medium rare and came out medium well. There were three sauces but until we asked the server what they were, he did not describe. We were there to celebrate my son's anniversary and had made note of it on the reservation. When asked about dessert, we got ready to order the smores signature dessert. Our server said, oh don't worry, I was bringing that to you all anyway. ( we presumed as a complimentary anniversary dish) \nWhen paying the bill, we were charged for the dessert. \nWe dine at a myriad of high end to trendy to downhome establishments. We are not snobs. We just were sorely disappointed. Our ratings were generous.

The food and service were both very good. However, go to this place only if you really like uncomfortable dining experiences. Truthfully, the table turnover rate is very high from what I observed because most people could not wait to eat and then get the hell out of the place. Dark, cramped, loud and uncomfortable. Perfect for people who neither want to hear each other talk nor see what they are eating. Even the wait staff acknowledges that the place is very uncomfortable for them. While the food is good, it is not tapas (unless you can count a 34-ounce tomahawk rib eye for $125 as tapas). The server said that they really mean 'sharable,' not tapas. Of course, is there anything that can't be shared? So, I guess everything is 'tapas.' Part of the problem is that the plates are NOT small (physically) and the tables are very small (physically). This adds significantly to the uncomfortable dining experience. Plates balanced on the edge of the table and no room to eat is not what I find acceptable. Let me try and think what Chris Santos would say if he was being honest - the flavors are good but the presentation ruins it for me!

Was very curious to try a Chris Santos restaurant. While the food was fine (not extraordinary), there were several problems:\n1. Diners were packed in like sardines. I had no room in the booth to place my jacket w/o hitting my neighbor. We were so close, they could hear - and chime in on - our conversation.\n2. It's very dark. The restaurant had an interesting decor...i think. It was so dark, you could hardly tell.\n3. Our server was well-intentioned, but his enthusiasm bordered on being manic. \n4. It was roasting in there. Need more AC.\n5. THIS IS THE BIGGEST ISSUE: Our server told us we had to assign a tip amount before running our card. That means he saw the tip while we were still there. This made us very uncomfortable. This alone would keep us from returning. \nBOTTOM LINE:\nThe food was fine, but it was not a pleasant experience. We won't go again. Nor would we recommend.

We love the original Beauty & Essex in NYC so we were thrilled they opened one in Vegas just before we vacationed there over Labor Day. While it isn't NY (what is really), it was far superior to many over-hyped restaurants in Vegas. This one actually lives up to the hype. The Greek toast was really good as well as the grilled cheese dumplings with tomato soup - AMAZING - so good we ordered it twice in the same night. Avoid the short rib mac & cheese as it tastes like a horrid hot tuna noodle casserole (we sent it back). The oven braised chicken meatballs were incredible and seriously could have ordered that twice as well. My husband had the tuna poke tacos which he said were phenomenal and we ordered the empanadas which we also sent back as they were made with wheat dough and it was so thick you couldn't taste any of the filling and the lobster rolls which we ate but really the sweet potato buns were a bit on the soggy side so pass on those if you are thinking it might be an option for you. Here's the one problem with this restaurant (aside from the fact that a few of the items were hit or miss), the service. Our server was a bit ego-centric and irritated me. I'm very well versed in food and we were treated a bit like dirt to be honest - he was very condescending. We will definitely go back because we love it overall, you just have to be prepared to spend a small fortune because you will order a lot but if you do it well, you will be full and happy having had a variety of amazing items.

This seemed like a lot to us. He pointed out which items were his 'favorites'; it was crazy how his favorites were all the most expensive items on he menu. We chose 6 items, and he asked us again if we wanted to add on the most expensive item on the menu (the tomahawk steak). We said no. \nAs the items were coming out, he came to check on us to see if we needed anything else. Like the tomahawk steak. Nope. Still good.\nAt the end of the meal, he came to me to ask if I wanted to order a special dessert for my husband's bday. If I ordered a platter of desserts, then he would have the kitchen write happy birthday on the plate. I declined.\nHe was so pushy and rude. He really turned the whole table off of the food.

Food was extremely salty. We did not eat a thing. The cheese they used stunk up the entire restaurant that it was getting unbearable to even sit there. For what they charge, disappointed.. We left hungry. They were very nice about it though and took everything we didn't eat off the bill and apologized.

Started off as a nice evening but went quickly downhill. We had to move from our first table because they were trying to fit a large group in beside us. Both us and the people they were trying to squeeze in were not impressed. They said they would comp our meal which was nice however they then moved us to a table beside the buss boy and waitress stand. We asked to move again because of the poor location. \nService at the new table was not good. \nTo top it off the whole night they were carrying chairs and large round tabletops around resetting and taking down tables, we felt like we were having dinner in a bus terminal with all the confusion. \nWe have been to the NYC location and it was excellent however the Vegas location is far from that. I would not go back or recommend the Vegas location.

Here's the problem, I don't normally give bad reviews. The issue is, I have been trying to find a table here when I visit Vegas for some time! They are always booked, now I know why. It's a really cool, almost bad-ass place when you walk in. It has a fake store front (but you can buy stuff) and a kind-of speak easy door that puts you back into a dark, velvety, dimly lit opium den kind of bar area. Sounds cool huh? It is for every young, hipster cool kid that typically stays at the Cosmo. Well, then you get seated at the dining area, it is one big open room and is loud as hell. You can't hear each other, the waitstaff or anything else...not even your own crunching! Yeah, it's real hip but the tables are so close together you are almost touching hips with the person next to you. The food was 'fine'...it's small plates meant to share but the menu was a bit limited, meaning if you wanted your own really big (fill in the blank) you had to order five servings of something! The exception was the lamb burger, really good flavors, great fries...nice job. Everything else was on par with Chili's. As talked up as this place was, I was disappointed. Won't go back. My advice to the Essex - turn down the music, spread out the dining area, put some linens on the crappy wood tables and make it where your waitstaff can walk inbetween. Speaking of the waitstaff...frankly given the fact it was dark, cramped, busy and too loud, they did a great job! Go if you want to party and don't care what you eat...don't go if you are a foodie and want a 'food' memorable meal. Oh, and the bartender can't make a Manhattan...

I booked this restaurant mainly because it was the only one in our resort that I could get an open table certificate. It was just okay. It was incredibly dark and noisy. My husband and I were trying to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary but we could hardly hear each other. We were squeezed into a table in between two other tables so it was not at all private. It was so dim the menu was hard to read. We ordered four 'small plates' and trust me, some of them were VERY small. If we hadn't had the certificate it wouldn't have been worth the $100 bill (that was without any cocktails or drinks).

We arrived 30 minutes before our 8:15 reservation and were pointed to the bar area for a cocktail. We ordered drinks quickly, but they took a long time. In fact the group of young men who arrived after us received theirs before we did. Anyway, our table was ready at 8:15, but our drinks were not. We were told that we would not be seated until our bar tab was settled. Remember, we had not yet received our drinks after a half hour of waiting! We finally settled up and were seated. The noise level was beyond energetic. It was like a NASCAR race. We had to shout at each other and the server to be heard. We were seated in a corner and there was a bucket and a rag next to our table, which staff frequently used. My wife got splashed a couple of times. I finally moved the bucket. Shortly after that, the 'manager' moved it back, and I protested. He said 'it's just sanitizer.' He finally moved it by another table. The food was just good, not outstanding. There are far better options in Vegas and even in the Cosmo.

We had very high hopes for this restaurant, and it fell flat! The interior is beautiful, but loud. We were off to a bad start when our waiter served the table sat after us first. Side note, he did see them seated second. After that things got worse. The food was mediocre at best, and slow. I enjoy a long dinner, but this was ridiculous. Especially for a tapas place. We ended up receiving one completely wrong dish, we ordered chicken and they brought fish. We had to wait about 5 minute for anyone, not our waiter, to remove the wrong dish. After 90 minutes we had had 3 tapas and 1 that never came. Ironically, that dish was the reason we were there!! The missing dish was removed from our bill, but it was too little too late. If you are looking for a fantastic meal I would suggest heading across the hall to Jaleo. They know how to do tapas.

Down-side out of the way: It's extremely noisy. Nothing else bad to say. Beginning with the most wonderful cocktail I've had in years - Emerald Gimlet - followed by at least one (shared) dish from each of the next categories, the two of us agreed that we have rarely had a better dining experience. Our server, Candyce, was knowledgeable, charming, and extremely helpful all through the evening. Every dish was so creative and full of flavor that we really didn't want it to end. Even the very noise in the room began to fade into the background as we were overwhelmed with the spectacular feast and incomparable service.

We went to Beauty and Essex based on recommendations and reviews. Loved the food but have a few comments re expectations. When we walked into the store front completely forgot that we had to go through the door to find the restaurant. Would have been nice for the person behind the counter seeing we looked confused, to tell us rather where to go rather than having to wait for others in the know to go in. The room is lovely, packed and very very loud (combo of people and music). Could barely have a conservation with my husband across our small table. We ordered great items but found they came out way too quickly. If we hadn't ordered dessert we would have been in and out within an hour. Not exactly an evening out. The waiter was outstanding. sorry forgot his name. Highlights were the various potstickers. Plus the donuts with 3 dips were light and delicious.

Was there with my husband. We go to Vegas annually and like to try new restaurants. I was very curious about this one, as I'd heard good things. Overall, I'm glad we tried it, the food was quite good, though my experiences usually depend on the level of service, and I would say that Beauty & Essex still needs to work out some kinks. Firstly, our waiter was very young, very green and bordered on being off-putting. Generally when I go to an upscale restaurant and describe a flavour I'm wanting in a cocktail, the server will just get the bartender to make me something. I was basically told I had to order something off the cocktail menu and there wasn't anything that appealed. The food was good, but arrived very quickly (like too quickly). I was hoping for a leisurely meal, and we were done in 45 minutes. It was also really dark and loud, though I like the energy. It might not appeal to diners who aren't in their early 20s. Food highlights for me: Lobster roll, the tuna poke tacos and the bone marrow. Glad I tried it, but I can see it not lasting.

We had 8:30pm reservations for 4 on a Monday night, which is 'industry night.' Our server was helpful, informative and guided us well. She was prompt and attentive, as well as just fun. The food was fantastics - our favorite was the grilled cheese dumplings. The deserts (peanut butter cup and the angel food) were devine. I did not drink, but the server made wine recommendations and my friends were more than pleased. \n\nThe BIG BIG BIG BIG downfall was the noise and ambiance. The noise level was DEAFENING. To the point where our server was literally yelling at us. As a four-top, we too were yelling at each other. It got better as it got later in the night, but guest shouldn't have to wait until 11pm for noise to level off. To boot, they had the music blaring - the louder the music, the louder the talking. For this very reason, I would not recommend nor go back. \n\nFinally, be prepared for the speakeasy theme to come to ahead. There were 1/2 naked flappers, gangsters and burlesque dancers walking the room. It was a little gross over dinner, but it's Las Vegas.\n\nI'd recommend for the food, and the cool decor, but if you are looking for a night with friends, don't go. You won't be able to hear them.

The only one I would not recommend was the rock shrimp ravioli. The ravioli was a little bland and doughy. The waiter had great taste and recommended all but the ravioli. Very memorable meal!! Five stars!!

I went there two nights in a row by myself. The two different servers (Holly and Lilly) were the best I have had out of all of the restaurants I've been to at the Cosmopolitan (and the Aria next door). I never felt rushed and had a very relaxed, fun time. The food was excellent. The wine was great (best Malbec by the glass I have ever had in a restaurant.) There was never a moment where I felt unattended to (from water refills, to fresh plates, to wine refills, to management attentiveness, etc.) They were firing on all cylinders both nights. If I had one issue, it was with the background music selection. Since I usually dine very early, it overpowered a relatively empty space (the eventual buzz of more diners helped a lot later). I entered to a bit of hip hop, magnified 100-fold in the empty room. Then it changed to some generic hotel background fluff music. Then Rosemary Clooney (or the like). Then back to a bit of hip hop. And so on... Music-wise, it was strange mix, given the environment and décor of the place. Regardless, it only took about 2 glasses of wine and the friendliness of the servers to make it non-issue. I will definitely return to this wonderful restaurant when I stay at the Cosmopolitan (even if they decide to hire a tuba player to serenade tables in the future!)

Fantastic new restaurant at The Cosmopolitan, very cool\nto walk through a Pawn shop to get into the restaurant. Fantastic vibe & ambiance, great service and knowledgeable staff. We love to sit at the bar to eat and this was perfect, we had the tuna tacos (amazing) but we're still talking about the jerk chicken, so moist and the flavors just popped in your mouth. Beauty & Essex will become a regular visit every time we're in Vegas.

The menu is very eclectic - starting with the cocktails. The savory selection- the Woodsman and the Garrison are both outstanding, if you're a Bourbon fan. After cocktails, my partner and I shared several 'small' things that after asking the restaurant made them into equal portions - for example 4 Tuna Poke Wanton Tacos v 3. The taco shells were very crunchy, the tuna very cold so the contrast was excellent. Next came the Caesar Toast - tasty but nothing special. Then can the extra special delights: 'Grilled Cheese, Smoked Bacon & Tomato Soup Dumplings followed by the French Onion Soup Dumplings - the former being the best. Both dumplings has great affiliation with their origin - the two soups; but the chef took the dumplings concept to a new level. Highly recommend both even though the cheese on the onion soup ones seemed a little over cooked. Finally we shared the Short Rib 'Mac & Cheese - the chef chose a Rigate that allowed the sauce and short rib to venture inside the pasta to give a unique distribution and uniformity of flavor. The cornbread topping was a nice twist on the usual panko. Noise level IS high. The place was packed for a 9:30 reservation but because I had seen here that noise was an issue I was expecting it and was prepared to deal. Overall a great experience and I will definitely return. Another gem in long List of great restaurants at The Cosmopolitan. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Honestly, the restaurant was too loud. We were a party of 8 and were excited when we were led to a round table so we could chat within the whole group. But the din was so loud, you couldn't even hear the waitor. It really ruined the dining experience and ambience of the restaurant. The food was great but it would have been nice to discuss what the rest of our party thought of each course as we were dining.

Great surprise to find an affordable, trendy, spacious place with energy, quick service and delicious food! Usually these types of places are rip-offs (although 2 gold rush cocktails at the bar were $39 w/o tip) but the food was reasonably priced, came out very fast our server was totally down to earth and always running around. Everyone seemed like they were a team helping each other out which made for good attitudes from the staff towards the customer. Music is jamming throughout the restaurant too and patrons seemed to be having a good time. Most restaurants are 'go once and don't go again' but not beauty and essex. I can say I would definitely come back here even if there are no windows!lol.

The service and food were great. The decor is unique and playful. We had the grilled cheese with tomato soup dumplings. The french onion soup dumplings and the 10oz. filet mignon. They were all great but I think the standout was the filet. Items are meant to be shared for 3 people so the filet was sliced and was perfect.\n\nMy only complaint was the noise level. The music level wasn't bad but the dining room was full and people were having a good time so I noticed a few tables shouting their conversations for all at the table to hear. I couldn't hear my husband across the table from me and I often asked the servers to repeat themselves.\n\nAll and all a wonderful dinner and experience but I wouldn't recommend for a quiet date.

Asked for quiet table - was seated at non-private table and watched two private tables get filled with requests from others. Broccolini was inedible - soaked in salt - Spoke to the manager about both issues and was comped an appetizer and not charged for the inedible dish (as you would expect).

We thought some of the food was just okay, although not hot enough, and way too pricey for what you got. There were five in our party so we expected the bill to be around $200.00, (we didn't have any drinks), which it was, but we didn't expect to leave hungry after spending that much money. The fish tacos were horrible, fries over cooked, grilled cheese bacon tomato soup dumpling was cold and to acidic. The jerk chicken was good but you only got one tiny piece each. The meatballs were very good and a good size so we were happy with that. I have put the rest of what we ordered out of my mind because is was so terrible. Will never go back and have warned friends not to bother going either. We had so looked forward to going and celebrating our Mom's 90th birthday. So disappointed.

Beauty & Essex was one of the highlights of our Vegas trip. The atmosphere was elegant but with just enough flash. The entrance was so unassuming but the surprise came as you opened the side door into the dining area. I was blown away. The service and the food were way above par and the portions were plentiful. Our server explained that most items were meant to be shared and she was right. Plenty! Plenty! Plenty!\n The only blemish was lighting is really low and forced a few tables to break out cell phone flashlight which took away from ambiance. Take a notch off the dimmer and this would be corrected.\nRecommended to all who love great food and a memorable dining experience.

Food tasted good meant for sharing but trickled out bringing 1 thing at a time appetizers that had 3 items meant to be shared among 6 people was a little hard to work with and there were several minutes (10-15) between bringing the other appetizers so only a few could nibble at a time. We were seated in a rounded booth next to the waiter station, quite possibly the WORSE table in the entire restaurant, after waiting 1.5 hrs after our reservation time. Plates were dirty and had to be replaced. Drinks were never refilled. Warm tap water when we requested ice water. Just awful experience. Don't think I would ever go back or recommend to anyone.

The food overall was good, and the space is super cool. Our server was really nice, although the door man and reception staff we found to be very snooty. This restaurant has some policies they should publish and make everyone aware of when making reservations, especially considering it's Vegas. They won't let anyone in with 'outside' food or beverage - even a bottle of water. One member of our party had to go dump out his water bottle, and in the meantime, they would not seat is because every member of the party must be present. The front staff were not nice about the situation either, which made the whole experience very stressful. It was not a good way to start what should have been a nice evening.

I was very disappointed. I went to this restaurant on Labor Day. I made a reservation one week in advance and notified the host that we are celebrating 2 birthdays. Day of the reservation, I received a call with confirmation and once again I stated we are celebrating 2 birthdays. I wasn't expecting for them to sing happy birthday or give us a comp'd dessert but I was hoping for good service. \nThe reservation was at 6:30 and didn't walk out of the restaurant until 8:30. We ordered 5 different plates which included the seared rare tuna. It took the kitchen 45 minutes to finally give us the seared rare tuna. It should never take that long. My party and I looked around and saw other tables that sat after us get all of their food at once while we were waiting every 15-20 minutes for one dish. We asked our server why our meals were taking so slow and she stated 'we like our guests to enjoy each bite before bringing the next meal.' \nThe manager was walking around greeting tables and I was hoping he would have stopped at our table but he did not. Not only will I not come back, but being a Concierge on the strip, I will not be recommending this restaurant to my guests!

My wife and I had dinner here two nights ago. Most already know that B & E is the creation of Chris Santos, one of the chefs front the TV show 'Chopped'. \n\nWe had an early dinner reservation so the dining room was mostly empty. I mention this because others had told me that when it's busy it can be very loud. That was not our experience at all. The decor is a knockout. Beautiful, cozy, warm and romantic. The menu is quite diverse from full dinners to their specialty, small shareable plates. Almost like having an assortment of hors d'oeuvres for dinner. We had the Greek toast, the grilled cheese dumplings and the French onion soup dumplings. Amazing. The bite sized grilled cheese and bacon dumplings are served in a spoon filled with delicious tomato soup. The French onion soup dumplings were served in a dish that I'd say is similar to a ceramic ice cube tray or tiny muffin tins. The food was amazing and great if you are in a group and want to share. I highly recommend this place, but it's not inexpensive. For the 3 dishes I mentioned and two drinks our bill was well over $100 with tip. Still, I would definitely recommend this and we will return.

The food was not good and we are pretty sure that my Mothers meal was heated Chef Boyardee.

It is not even a dish that should be called an entree, this should be in the appetizer section or tapas section. Needless to say for a pricey restaurant the food was not appetizing and this was not a good experience.

I decided to have my 30th birthday dinner at Beauty & Essex, which I had my 29th at the location in New York because it was a beyond memorable, I was excited to see it open in Vegas. Unfortunately, it wasn't the same experience. The hostesses, were nice and friendly. The sever that I had was actually the worst server I had in my life. The attitude was something that I have never seen before. They were out of food items that my tables requested. When I asked for an orange slice in my vodka soda, she acted like I just asked for 1 million dollars. The food wasn't great, 2 of my guests ordered the same dish and they wouldn't take it back because there was 1 bite taken out of both. It took awhile to get our drinks, when we did they drinks were watered down, melting with condensation as if they have been sitting on the bar for awhile. I did not expect this on my birthday.

B&E was on our list of new food establishments to hit up during last week's vacation trip to Vegas. We weren't disappointed. It's as quirky and refined a space (third floor of the Cosmopolitan Hotel) as the NY resto and yes, you also enter here through a glitzy little pawn shop (all stuff in the glass cases for sale). It is an elegant space and everyone was very friendly. The service was highly attentive but not over bearing. Our server was an expert with the menu. We also appreciated the wine suggestions for pairing as this is about sharing some incredibly balanced and well-proportioned small plates. Everything from simple to exotic, we tended to over order but you couldn't help it. Absolutely delicious from start to finish. One suggestion: bring a sweater; the main dining room is freezing. We saw a server for another table bring out a blanket. Dinner for two including two glasses of wine was $200. Very good for Vegas standards. We will definitely return.

On the first night of our recent stay at the Cosmopolitan, we were wandering around reading the menus of the new restaurants. Beauty & Essex's menu intrigued me but it was the description of the 'Grilled Cheese, Smoked Bacon & Tomato Soup dumplings' that was on my mind for days. On the afternoon of our last day, I could no longer resist and booked a last minute reservation. \n\nThe front of the restaurant is a small pawn shop with a security guard outside. Don't be offput by the guard. \n\nWe were promptly greeted by Roszettie, our server. She was super knowledgeable of the menu and offered to make all of the dishes served as even numbers because there were just two of us. \n\nI ordered the Emerald Gimlet. It didn't disappoint. \n\nFood:\n\nThe Tuna Poke Tacos - both of our favorites. A small crispy taco shell with tuna poke, soy, radishes, etc. It was perfectly balanced. \n\nThe Lobster roll - The roll is either made in house or they are delivered daily because they couldn't have been fresher. The roll had a sweetness that enhanced the lobster salad. \n\nThe Bone Marrow - One very large bones split lengthwise into two pieces. As a note to Chris Santos, the celebrity Chopped judge who lends his name to this restaurant, the marmalade and salad didn't really seem to have a purpose and could have been left off the plate. All this dish needs is the marrow and the crispy, fresh, buttered bread chunks.\n\nThe Tomato Soup Dumpling - while good they were a little misleading. The soup is not in the dumpling (one of the reasons I ordered it was to see how they got it in there without it getting soggy). It was a small, crispy, bacon & cheese dumpling resting in a spoon of tomato soup. The soup was excellent without being overly acidic. It was a perfect complement to the dumpling.\n\nI can not say enough good things about Roszettie and the rest of the employees. They were super professional and courteous.

Since we mainly ordered tapas, he brought items as the kitchen completed the plates so the food was the right temperature. \n\nBecause the plates were small, we order several dishes so our bill was over $200. Some of the dishes were overpriced for what they were.\n\nThe restaurant was also very loud.

Each was better than the next.\n\nAlso tried their Prairie Vodka which was most tasty.\n\nThe waitress was working hard to turn the table and if we allowed her we would have ordered, served and finished with dinner in 20 minutes.\n\nOther than that it was an exceptional experience overall.\n\nCheers!\n\nJohn

Took my best girlfriend here for dinner for her first time in Vegas and this restaurant did not disappoint! Our cocktails and food were incredible! We ended up ordering a couple appetizers to split so we could try a variety of the menu. The steak tartar was our favorite! Food and drinks came out so fast and the service was on point. We're both in the service industry and were very impressed! We will be back next time we are in town! Thank you, Beauty and Essex!

If you like Beauty & Essex in the Lower East Side, then you will hate it's Las Vegas reincarnation. It is the antithesis. \n\nIt's about as hip as Disney World. The atmosphere, service and food are all bad whereas I love the original LES eatery. \n\nThe hostess who sits in the middle of the mall-like area of the Cosmo was incredibly rude. We were seated at our 8 PM reservation time and then sat for 35 minutes before we were offered water. Then, a couple sat down beside us and the waitress attended to them within three minutes of their being seated. Apparently out table fell through the cracks.\n\nOff to a rocky start, including the bad vibe from the moment you enter. The food was ok and the poor server was fine once she attended to us. However, for the price, there are far better options right in the Cosmo--including the incomparable Estiatorio Milos and the Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar. \n\nBeauty & Essex Las Vegas is like eating at Planet Hollywood. Avoid it at all costs--even go to Egg Slut for a tastier, quicker and less annoying option.

Our server told us that the menu was based on small plate concept for sharing. For a party of 2 she recommended 5 items. I asked if we could order apps 1st and order entree dishes later. Our sever said we would need to order all items at the start and that they would space them out. Ok, but the spacing didnt work. We got 2 dishes immediately and before finishing the 1st two, the next 3 came. We felt very rushed during the entire experience. It was an afterthought of the server to ask us for a 2nd drink.\n\nFrom a food standpoint, bologanaise and avocado toast were awesome. Scallop dish was too sweet ( sugar added). Brocolli Raab was way too salty.\n\nAmbiance was definitely cutting edge contemporary but at half full is was loud.

Beautiful place and seated very quickly. However we were sitting and waiting for 25-30 min before we saw our waiter. The table next to us felt bad and offered us their bottle of water. Food took forever to show up after the manager had to take our order since the waiter hardly showed. I usually tip 18-20%, however today I only tipped 10% and that was gracious. He rushed out because food was mediocre and so were the specialty cocktails. It also took forever to get the check. I really wanted to complain but my girlfriend felt bad so I decided to just wait.

We went outside of our comfort zone with our food choices, and everything was a hit. Cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. I would recommend the Avocado Toast dish, the Salmon, the cheese tomato soup bites, and the broccoli. All was amazing! And the service was perfect all around.

We had a pretty good time until we received our check. Our server had told us that he was going to have the kitchen split all our dishes evenly so that the two of us could share but did not mention that we were going to be charged extra for it. Even in Vegas, I think $24 is plenty for 3 fish tacos. When the bill came, we were charged $8 for an extra fish taco. When I questioned our server he said that he told us that he was going to split our dishes so that we could share. I decided to let it go. Later on, I realized that we had ordered the shrimp dish as well and there were only 5 shrimp not 6. It sort of upset me and I felt taken advantage of so I ended up calling the restaurant and talking to the manger. She promptly told me there was nothing she could do but offer me drinks if we came back. Unfortunately, we had left already. We won't return and I can't recommend.

The gem of the night were the French Onion Soup Dumplings. However, our dinner was spoiled by poor timing of dish delivery. We had a rush of food all at once, when it really should have been timed out slowly. We were rushed, and didn't even have a chance to enjoy a wine pairing with our lamb dish.

It was my idea to come to this restaurant for my cousins birthday with 9 women. The vibe was great and I loved the atmosphere but something was TOTALLY off with the kitchen. We all ordered main dishes and tapas. The scallops apparently comes with 3 nugget sized scallops and when 1 order of the salmon came out, it looked as though they forgot half of it. Our food was EXTREMELY salty. I originally got my food first and after one bite, I sent it back for a new order. Once everyone else took a bite of their own food, they said the same thing. TOO salty! We were already there for too long. We got up, paid for our drinks and tip and left starving. Very unfortunate experience given I have heard great things about this place. I've been to the NYC location and loved it. Maybe it was a one off night, but we were very disappointed.

My first time to dine at Beauty & Essex. I read the reviews on Open Table and I was a bit hesitant to dine with my cousins because most people who reviewed the restaurant said it was too loud. To my surprise, it wasn't as loud as people were complaining about.\nThe food was amazing. I definitely recommend ordering several different things from the menu to share with your group. The chicken meatballs, tuna poke tacos, empanadas, and donuts were among my favorite dishes to try. Overall, everything was really good. No complaints about our server, he was very nice and helped us navigate through the menu. If you're looking for a Vegas hot spot to go to, this is the place to try!

Very small portions. Terrible for groups for two reasons: (1) exceptionally loud making it difficult to communicate (even to the person next to you) and (2) you would have to order 3-4 portions of the same order for everyone to get a little (when the dishes are ~$15-20+ per portion that gets expensive). Long lulls between 'dishes' (small plates) so, since it is difficult to communicate, you spend a lot of time yelling and staring at your phone waiting. The food was not anything out-of-this-world or groundbreaking. Very run-of-the-mill offerings that do not have a place in a hotel like The Cosmopolitan.

Perfect spot for a great night out in Vegas. Go early and enjoy a drink at the bar where a DJ keeps things lively. The restaurant was very busy on a Friday night when we were there, but they took us close to our reservation time and the service was tremendous. Our group of 4 ordered all tapas and everything we had was terrific. Many of the dishes come with servings for three, but you can request to have the number of pieces served match the size of your party. Our favorites included the tuna tacos, sashimi, onion soup dumplings and salmon. The one miss was the empenadas which just tasted to bready. But as good as they food was, the feel and vibe are even better. It is not inexepensinve (nothing good in Vegas is) but worth every penny.

I am spoiled because I have been to the NYC Beauty and Essex many times. This is not THAT! So my expectations were let down.\n\nThis particular Beauty and Essex is like a Vegas nightclub. It was very very loud and theatrical. I wish that the music was less loud in the dining hall, as I could not hear a word the waitress was saying or my date. We kept having to lean over and scream to talk. Not what I really wanted on a date night. \n\nThe food is amazing. Just like NYC. The prices is a bit more per item, but it's Vegas, so I do not expect any less. It's a fun place to hang out if you are young and don't mind screaming while in conversation.

Hit an opening hiccup when hostess left us sit for 35 minutes after arrival because they didn't realize all four members of our party were present. Not sure why as the four of us were sitting right around the corner from the hostess station. Admittedly, we were 15 minutes late but I called from the chaotic LV Boulevard 15 minutes before our reservation time to explain we would be a little late. \n\nThe place is beautiful. Attention to detail is evident. The bar's art deco theme is stunning; helped made the wait tolerable. The large room we ate in (with the window necklaces) was beautifully decorated but there was nothing to break up the space. Every available square inch had tables wedged into it. We felt cramped and having other tables so close made conversation difficult. The ridiculous music (tribal drum beating is my closest description) was overly loud and so any chance of getting in a few words of chat between conversational pauses at the adjacent tables was lost. The noise was really overbearing and put a damper on everything else. I can't understand what management has in mind with such an invasive aural attack. I suspect its part of the 'experience' mindset, which is fine if you don't like the company you're with. \n\nOur waitress was a gem and I apologize for forgetting her name. She was a petite blond with dimples; hope that helps. She was attentive without being bothersome. She deserves a better venue. We all loved her, even the ladies. Haha. \n\nThe food was average at best, and far below par for a fine dining Strip restaurant. The much-hyped onion soup dumplings were sodden with cheese. Not one of our foursome was overly enthused about their entree and none expressed the desire to come back. Too many mistakes for a restaurant pretending to be a top drawer destination. I suggest they visit Sage in Aria or even the more casual Mon Ami Gabi in Paris for ideas on how to run a Strip restaurant.

Came for a meal on our first night in Vegas. A bit goofy to get into the restaurant (through a pawn shop; speakeasies are feeling a little dated nowadays). The decor is absolutely gorgeous. We each had a different cocktail and both were quite good. Separate vegan menu was fantastic. We had the tomato tartare (diviiiiiiiiine), the avocado toast (which was also great), scallops (BF loved them) and seared tofu (quite good). Service was great but the restaurant was CRAZY loud.

The service was outstanding and the ambiance was elegant and hip. All of the shrimp dishes were delicious with huge shrimp (shrimp cocktail and Thai style shrimp). The grilled cheese and tomato soup dumplings were recommended and delicious. The steak tartare and poke wonton tacos were excellent as well. We loved the mini cupcakes and homemade sorbet/ice cream selections for dessert. One thing that was not great was the lobster tacos...they were extremely bland, flavorless and the thick breading felt like they ruined a good piece of lobster by deep frying it. The chile relleno empanadas were over-fried and lacked much taste and spice too. Overall, we tried about 13-14 different items and only 2 were fair and the rest were awesome! The 'woodsman' drink was very good too with maple syrup...never would've thought that went well in a bourbon drink.

The waiter realized we hadn't gotten the second ones and apologized and said they'd be taken off our order. They weren't. But we weren't charged for drinks so I didn't bother arguing since it was a wash. I have no idea what happened to our order and why it took so long. Luckily we weren't in a hurry and it didn't ruin the night but it was annoying.

The food was great. The atmosphere was great. My few complaints were 1. It was really loud. 2. The waitstaff was not clear on which water was free so we ended up spending money on water we didn't want to spend. 3. The food came out so fast that you couldn't enjoy the company. \n\nI would recommend this place but would warn them of the above.

I was a little skeptical about the food at food,\nI thought it was on the smaller side which it is but we still got a good amount of food. Everything was so delicious and fresh. We got the French onion dumplings and they were so good and different. For the main courses we got the lamb Bolognese and another macaroni dish with a egg on to and both were absolutely delicious. Oh! I almost forgot the apple and kale salad was by far the most tastiest thing k ever ate. Woah I had a plate right now! For desert was got the birthday cake shooters and donuts (made fresh to order- at least that's how they tasted lol) so delicious don't hesitate, book a table now!

I went to B and E in NY and loved it so I was thrilled to see one is open in Vegas! Unfortunately it came no where close to the original. Some food was cold, dry pasta, gritty scallops, desert looked cool but poor taste. Most importantly the washroom experience is not a factor. Not having champagne party as part of the ladies room experience is disappointing.

It was amazing. From start to finish, the meal was really outstanding. The service was the one con, but it will not stop me from going back. It is not an easy menu, however, if you have dietary restrictions because they do not do substitutions. For such a chic place, one would think that they would be more welcoming to those who have certain dietary restrictions. On the other hand, the decor and ambiance were tip-top and the food was magical.

We had the avocado dish, the mushroom pizzata, the salmon ceviche, and the lamb chops broccolinni. The mixture of flavors filled my taste palates. It was a delightful meal.

My wife and I have been to probably 30 upscale restaurants in Vegas, and most offer a wonderful menu and outstanding food. B&E had a great menu, which is why we decided to dine there, and the food was good, but not great. My biggest disappointment was the number of times I asked my wife to repeat herself. It wasn't just loud, but annoyingly loud white noise and chatter. To a point I felt exhausted by the time we left. If you are in the mood for a loud dinner with no more than 4 people (couldn't hear the others if you're sitting at the opposite end of the table), then B&E is the place for you!

To be honest, just like a Mr. Chow, this is a place that is 85% hype and 15% about the food. Slightly overpriced for the quantity of food you get and quality/taste is slightly above average, but nothing wow factor.

The 4 chicly dressed folks outside in the 'pawn shop' had no idea about what they were selling...the value, history or 'story' behind the items. \n\n Ok, you probably don't care about that. You might care about this: The server in the bar lounge area had no idea about the specialty cocktails on their menu, so we didn't order one. We ordered Manhattans requesting a rye whiskey. She told me that she didn't think they had that. (a bar in a restaurant at the Cosmo had no rye whiskey???? really?) The Manhattan with 'whatever you have' was an undrinkable warm soup of sweet vermouth (which the hostess insisted we carry ourselves from the lounge back to the hostess desk and back out to the restaurant table in the dark unfamiliar restaurant when are table was ready.) Ok so maybe I started getting a bad vibe from the service at the pawn shop, the bar, and the hostess. Maybe I was getting an attitude about their attitude? \n\nLets move on to the restaurant: Pros: its a pretty space. \n\nLets move on to the food. The yellowtail sashimi dish was horribly fishy tasting like maybe it had been frozen and thawed a couple of times???). The Bone marrow dish had bone-saw issues which left only a small amount of marrow in the parts they served. That was probably for the best as that small portion was inedibly over salted. And lastly the scallops where raw in the middle....not under-cooked.....raw.\n\nI'm very disappointed that the Cosmopolitan, with so many fine restaurants, has allowed this venue to start out with such poor quality control.\n\nMy recommendation is to wait another month or so to check this place out....they obviously need some time to get at least something right.

We were three people, and the first 4 dishes were incredible and each dish had 3 pieces on it which oddly enough was working out perfectly for the 3 of us. Then our dish of 'Bone Marrow' came out. Again, 3 bones......but no marrow. When we complained , they were great about making the dish over again. 2nd Bone Marrow dish came out, beautifully filled with lots of Marrow, but only 2 bones on the dish. Thereafter, every dish that came out only had TWO items on it. Not sure why, but wasn't very convenient. For dessert, we chose the house specialty that had a huge circle around it on the menu. Couldn't eat it though. Was extremely dry. I'll go back, but will go with only TWO people instead of Three.

Everything we ate was amazing, caesar toast, grilled cheese and tomato soup, chicken meatballs, short rib Mac and cheese. The space is beautiful and sexy. The only downfalls, the dining experience was too quick. We were sat, served, and finished eating our small plates in 35 minutes...paid the bill and left in 45mins. I'm all for quick service, but this was far too quick for a sit down dinner. We loved the atmosphere so much we sat at the bar after dinner. Next time, I will be more slow to order to properly enjoy the evening a bit longer.Everything we ate was amazing, caesar toast, grilled cheese and tomato soup, chicken meatballs, short rib Mac and cheese.

The French on in soup wontons were genius my partner over the chicken meat balls and my friend favoured the marrow on toast ( which needed a little more marrow) \nThe service was impeccable if not a little too much as it slightly felt we were rushed.

What a beautiful restaurant. It's like dining inside of a jewelry box with stunning details throughout, each room has a different theme. Come early to browse the vintage jewelry shop entrance with so many unique items. The staff was on point and very helpful with their top recommendations, although I can't imagine anything on the menu being anything less than amazing. This was one of the best meals I've had and left me wanting to come back and try the items I just didn't have room for in my stomach. We ordered ahi tacos, grilled cheese bacon and tomato soup dumplings (yum!), cauliflower (best I've ever had), short rib Mac n cheese (double yum!), and the chicken meatballs (so good). The Earl the Pearl cocktail was a standout from the drink selection. This is a must visit when in Vegas!
