“Beatrice and Woodsley”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

While trying to be unique - much was lost in the word. The decor was lovely (woodsy and artistic). The WCs were a challenge. Hard to find the doors since they blended in with wood paneled walls. The sinks are outside the WCs and I could not figure out how they worked for about 2 minutes. All the patrons could see that struggle.

The menu: we were there for brunch. The listings had unique name with very few explanations. Monkey Brains? Not a good choice for a cinnamon type bun with walnuts and a sauce. I had the Barking Dog (no dog of any kind present). It was a small Cheese and fresh spinach omelet (very good) with three corn fritters (also good) to be dipped in a cheese and tomato fondue. This fondue was the turn off. It was watery and tasteless. I asked the server to advise the chef re the fondue and his response "that's the way it is". Wrong answer. The rest of the party ordered other uniquely named dishes. No one was impressed. Don't waste your time or your money unless you wish to gawk.

“High expectations - very cool decor”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

What an interesting, creative, well designed restaurant. Based upon how it looked, I had high expectations for Beatrice and Woodsley. But unfortunately, it was a disappointment. The best thing was the beignet appetizer. And it was downhill from there, reaching its nadir with the dessert. So so risotto, a mediocre hen, gamey bison burger, and on and on..... Disappointing. And our server was bored being there - not the least bit attentive. We were a bother.

“Below average cuisine at above average cost”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Cool space, interior tree trunks and round booths are asthetically pleasing. Food was really disapointing, between 4 of us, nothing we had was particualry good. Staff was great, but $70+ per person for a below average meal and a few drinks in Denver did not leave us with any interst in going back, would not recommend.

“A unique, delicious meal”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

A charming little spot tucked in the South Broadway strip. There's no sign on the door so make sure you don't miss it.

The decor and uniqueness of the place is something to see at least once. The space looks like an enchanted forest and the bathroom and washing sinks are very much worth checking out.

The food is mostly great. Crawfish fritters have been a staple and the mix of the corn cake with the crawfish and a light dusting of sugar is the perfect way to start any meal there. The drinks are also unique and fun, the earl grey tea drink and mezcal bloody mary are my faves.

This is definitely a 'girly' place, perfect for cocktails or brunch with the ladies.

“Below Average for Brunch”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

A very cool space, that's for sure. Add in the inattentive waitstaff, who asked questions of us but didn't listen to the answers, and a waiter who erroneously describes dishes regularly on the menu (not specials!) and you have a pretty disappointing experience. Follow that up with poorly seasoned food and a chef who doesn't think the restaurant's patrons are adult enough (or foodie enough?) to season their own food and you have mediocre food to top it all off. My meal was poorly seasoned and was COLD.

We also tried the special of the day that included fresh peaches that were shockingly under-ripe. Just a disappointment all-around.
