Knowledgeable staff but also a dedicated GF menu that is to die for - very extensive too, not just 2-3 items. Super delicious. They do have GF dessert items and bakery, but just beware of bakery items as they’re in the same case with non-GF baked goods.

The staff was knowledgeable about gluten-free foods. There’s a GF menu and everything is prepared separately to avoid cross contamination. Also, I had the skirt steak and fries, which was DELICIOUS. The only thing is that they served drinks with a hay straw. I asked if the straw had gluten. She wasn’t sure and brought out the box, and the straws are certified GF but are made with wheat starch. So possibly okay if celiac, but not okay if you have a wheat allergy. I looked at the straw manufacturer’s website, and they contain 8ppm gluten, so little enough to be certified GF but can still cause a reaction in some with celiac. I decided to be on the safe side and not use a straw because I’m extremely sensitive to gluten. Of course, the restaurant was nice about it and gave me a new drink that hadn’t had a straw in it.

They take proper protocol for many items but baked goods in a case with gluten baked goods is a bad idea and puts celiac customers at risk.

My favorite brunch place and it has loads of gluten free options. I have had it several times and never gotten sick. The waiters even ask if you have an allergy or preference to make sure they are careful!

Fries were great, hard time trusting anything else based on lack of CC knowledge from my server. Bakery case had GF items right next to regular items. Tomato soup ordered from GF menu came out with croutons, and first bite from roasted beets made me not trust it or eat the rest. Update: definitely had a gluten reaction the next day... either from beets or tomato soup. I tested fries with Nima since they came late and I was untrusting by that point... fries were good via Nima & I was told only thing in fryer.

Came to Beatrix 3x during a business trip because my hotel was across the street What a celiac find!! I am extremely sensitive to gluten cross contamination. A great place even for non celiacs. It has a great cool vibe with a restaurant, a full bar and coffee bar with 90s and 2000s music. They have a dedicated gluten free menu and knowledgeable staff, dedicated gluten free fryer and toaster, and an ingredient list available if you have other allergies like I do. They managed my wheat, shellfish and onion and garlic allergy great. The manager, Kevin, came out to answer any questions we had. And my ultimate test...no vomiting after 3 hours (which is how I know a place is gluten safe or not :). I had salmon with braised carrots and mashed potatoes one time. Shared gluten free chocolate cake which tasted great. Another time I had steak, eggs and hash browns. Try this place for brunch, lunch, dinner and dessert.

We had a great meal at Beatrix! Our server explained their gluten free procedures to me and helped me feel confident eating there. Then when the food came out a different server explained which things on the table were gluten free in case I wanted to try something off my mom’s plate. My mom and I are both vegan and I have Celiac and we were both able to get a nice meal that adhered to our dietary restrictions.

AMAZING!! Read many reviews on the place, but always go in to new places a little skeptical. Our family of 3 ate for around $50 and everyone lives there dishes. I had the angus burger, and as the celiac of the family asked many questions. Waitress was extremely knowledgeable and understood it isn’t a “fad” diet. Managers flag and subsequently ok an allergen entree before it is served. The fryer is not only safe so we can have fries, but they do not use gluten containing products in anything that meets any fryers. While the burger was served on GF toast, rather than the big beautiful buns, it was quite tasty and I certainly restrain positive remarks as they relate to GF bread. Deviled eggs were amazing! Fries awesome. Burger delicious. Waitress friendly and knowledgeable. Felt safe at this restaurant for sure.

Was in Chicago twice this month and probably ate here 5-6 times, both at the Streeterville and River North locations. Dinner twice, lunch once and many breakfasts. Multiple gluten free options for all. Waitstaff is very good and on top of things. They had tasty gluten free toast, flourless chocolate cake and yummy Joy's cookies, like a macaroon with almonds and chocolate chips. The food was always delicious, and except for dessert, very healthy. I was so pleased to have somewhere I could relax and enjoy eating out. Of special note, the atmosphere on N Clark was great near the huge windows that open up in the evenings.

Everything was amazing! I had shakshuka and hash browns - the hash browns were made separately from the rest, in their own pan. The gf menu was extensive and I can't wait to go back and try more! Y u m!

Tasty. The breakfast sandwich and hash browns are very good. Although there is an open kitchen, the staff appears well trained and takes all precautions to avoid cross-contamination. I didn't have any issues after eating there twice, so I'll say it's safe. Side Note: If you haven't heard of the Nima gluten sensor, check it out. The first full run is currently shipping. It should help to eat in non-dedicated restaurants with more ease. I'll include Nima readings in reviews when mine arrives!

There were so many options that I couldn't decide where to even start, but since French fries have become somewhat a novelty, I had to have some. Their menu is wonderful. They brought toasted gf bread with our hummus for me and lots of yummy veggies on the side. The waitress even knew what cocktails were safe. GO!!!!
