Best oysters!

I loved the way they treat their customers. I love the staff, they catered us properly, very polite and kind. the place was very nice, I loved the atmosphere of the whole restaurant. You can see that people are really enjoying their experience in the place. The oysters were wonderful! They were the best of all that I have tasted so far. I am so glad that because of the previous reviews, I was tempted to visit the place. So I did, and I had a wonderful experience.

Great Place for a New Years Eve Dinner!!!

Went here with a friend on New Years Eve and was very pleasantly surprised...the reviews read before going were questionable at best...so we went as sceptics..and low and behold were impressed with the ambiance, service(by at least 6 attentive and personable) wait staff, tasty food and decadent dessert (chocolate-chip souffle)mmmmm.... excellent coffee-the true measure of a good restaurant and nice music to enjoy and have a conversation. We will definitely go back and recommend going...view more!!!view less

This restaurant has been placed for collection by one of it's seafood suppliers. According to chef, Waldy Malouf, he acknowledges the debt but states he doesn't know when he can re-pay it.

Delicious

I had dinner at Beacon last night with family members from overseas. I was impressed with the service first and foremost. The staff (waiters, hostesses, bus boys, bartenders) were all very friendly and extremely attentive, which I think is exceptional and rare at most of the restaurants in that area. The food was tasty and the courses well timed. I would definitely dine at Beacon again and would highly recommend it.

great food

This place was so romantic; I took my boyfriend here for Valentine's Day and we had such an amazing time. The food was great, just a bit pricey!

Great Oysters overcame clumsy staff

First ...the good. The oysters. Shallots, verjuice slightly smoky flavor with lots of juice and oyster texture. These went very well with a sparkling wine and I would assume would go well with a fizzy Belgian ale as well. This is the food I think about when swimming with disrobed models or driving a Bugatti.

I also really enjoyed watching the kitchen. They have a fire there so it looks nice and I did not see anyone sneeze or pick food off the floor. I like being able to watch
...view morethe people who handle my food.

The bad is not really that bad. First the waiter told me I was missing the best part of the oysters by not soaking up the juice with my bread. The thing is that he never gave me any bread. That was corrected though. The cocktails were too strong before dinner and we had to send them back. I mean like Liver Transplant strong. Even the weaker versions that arrived were too strong and I could not finish them. They also had trouble realising that food came in stages with drinks. The cocktails came at wrong time. The dinner wine came during the appetiser and the dessert wine was not brought for dessert.

I had reservations for two and the hostess seated me at a table for six. I asked to be moved and about 20 minutes later I was but I could not figure out why I waited so long. The hostesses seemed confused by the computer system and that made them ignore customers.

Give it a try but do not expect it to be a quiet romantic place and you might have to ""remind"" the staff a few times as to what you want.

Best Budget Friendly Restaurant

I stopped by for a quick lunch at the chef counter, the burger bar, it was featured as a must try in NY Magazine this week. The small mini sliders were soooo good. I will be back soon. They are running a crazy sale, 20% off all menus, wine list featuring $30 wines and healthy sized cocktails for $10! Plus they are still running restaurant week menus\r

Great Restaurant

This is a great place to eat. They have excellent service. The servers as well as the manager constantly checked to see if everything was okay. They oysters are to die for!!!! My friends and I had their prix fix dinner menu and they had plenty of choices for the apetizer, entree and dessert. I would definitley go back here again!

Overall
Was probably great once- Spend your money elsewhere.

Overall I was disappointed in my experience. The service was friendly and attentive, but the food was below average. Salads were tasty but overly seasoned. I ordered the filet mignon medium and it was literally burnt on the outside and rare-raw on the inside. I had to scrape char from the sides of the meat. The sauces were heavy and again, too salty. Nothing original or inventive in the menu. I had the sorbet for dessert and they were light and refreshing, and probably the best part of...view more the meal. The ambience feels like this was probably a nice restaurant when it opened, but hasn't done much to keep itself up-to-date. For the money, you can do much better than Beacon.view less
