Bea is that increasingly rare place in New York, where you are actually encouraged to enjoy the art of conversation. It’s a place where people have enough space and elbow room to relax and get comfortable, to meet new people or to catch up with old friends, a place to have a good time, while imbibing top-of-the-line handcrafted cocktails and grazing and sharing beautifully composed small plates.

"We had the lamb and tuna tartar, which were good."

We had great food and service. Shrimp and spinach fettuccine dish was great, as was tuna tartar.

This restaurant was really disappointing. How is it possible that the tables surrounding my party of 5, including a table of 8, got their food and finished their meals before my table even got our food? Unless they were catching the shrimp in the hour and a half we waited for our food, this experience was definitely unsatisfactory. Three of us had the same plate! The entree portions are also small. My table asked to speak with the manager and they didn't even let us speak to him because the event coordinator "oversaw" the manager which was a complete lie. After much complaining, they said they were buying us a round of shots which is a lie because EVERYONE else around us got shots. Explain to me why the event coordinator took a shot with us. That's so unprofessional especially after seeing how upset we were. Shots or no shots, we still wanted to talk to the manager. Also, the event coordinator said they were to compensate some of our meal for their terrible service but when they brought us the check, our bill wasn't discounted. The event coordinator told us to speak to the manager about the discount but the "manager"/someone we spoke to wouldn't stand by the event manager's word, after the event coordinator said he "oversaw" the manager. We argued with the "manager" for half an hour after him making a ton of excuses and claiming that we placed our order later than we claimed. We ordered our food when we got our drinks and we had photos on our phones of our drinks with timestamps on them backing up our claim. Our waitress messed up, didn't even apologize and avoided my table the rest of the night by passing on our bill to another waitress. I'm never coming back here again and definitely do not recommend this restaurant. Do yourself a favor and choose somewhere else to eat.

Very nice creative cocktails (especially the beer cocktails). Good small plates and mini-pizza

Great cocktails, and the food was good. Service a little slow, but great ambience. Shocking that the tables are no bigger than a postage stamp.

What a great spot , it is kind of hidden. Only if one knows about it, there are not many restos/bars where this spot stands. Though it looks small but it is actually very spacious with 3 different sections with bar being in the centre. They also have small outdoor kinda of space which is cool to handout in summers. I came here with some friends and we just had drinks. We had a great time here. I would come back here to try food.

wow I have been here for 2 hours and have yet to get my food...... I dont know if it was the service or the kitchen, however we had a party of 8 and 6 had their food sent back so far. the drinks ae good but don't eat the experience was absolutely terrible! The only reason I gave it 2 starts was because the drinks and other serving staff are so excellent!
