    Short Ribs are fantastic!

    Cook in beer and wine and some incredible secret? We ordered a second order they were irresistable! It was a bar atomoshere with nice service the waitress was very good. The rest of the Tapas were slightly above average but worth a try.

    Creative consistancy

    With a small front room and bar, a tiny kitchen and a larger back room Beast is a creature find serves up tasting portions that are delightfully divergent and delicious. They can compete with anything out there. Yes it can get slow when it’s crowded, because the kitchen is not large enough to support the number of tables in the place. But so what? Would you rather get the fast food rush? Serve it up and spin you out? Don’t go there if you’re looking for an upturned nose or big bland. Do go there if you’ve of notion of neighborhood and want to get the feel of real.

    Damn good food

    The cuture of the States always want more on their plates. Go to Dennys if that's what you want. The quality and presentation of the dishes are amazing and the taste will blow your mind.. especially that the dishes are very inexpensive for the luxury that you are being served on a beautiful plate. I believe the cooks give it their all, and for such a small crowded restaurant the service is damn good and a great place to meet new people. Hands down, this place knows how to do it right.

    Beware of the Beast

    After reading a ton of great reviews I decided to take a drive out to the Beast from the Lower East Side. What followed was overall one of the most unpleasant dining experiences I have ever had. I will be brief- The food was cold and tasted as though it was a failing home economics student's midterm. The service? Non-existent. We honestly felt invisible. Atmosphere was cool... but no cooler than your local tavern. In a neighborhood that has a ton of great restaurants to offer I would highly recommend staying away from the Beast!

    I just want to agree

    With the review below that says Small Portions, Full-Sized Prices, and Tasty Food. That's the absolute truth. I wish the portions would grow... just a little because right now they always leave me hungry. So, I decided to get the graham cracker marshmallow dessert and well given that its comprised of like 5 crackers and a few marshmallows - I didn't feel much fuller. I love this place, but it really needs to work its portions.

    Continuously great time

    As always, I just had a wonderful meal at Beast. There was a wait but i was kept informed and, as an employee of the industry myself, I was well aware that they were busy and doing the best they could. One of my favorites is the changing quartinos of wine they offer. Always interesting selections and ALWAYS delicious. The kitchen is so tiny but they manage to pump food out at a pretty quick pace. It took a few minutes to get our delectable food but i could see the two chefs really moving in there. Kind of amazing. I recommend sitting in the front room to watch the kitchen staff on a busy night. Must haves: skirt steak, ribs, scallops, calamari. As for drink sizes and pricing... I've never seen a 4oz drink anywhere...especially there. Beers are $5-$7, I had a Ketel marinti tonight and it was $11. I think thats the usual price, if not good for the size i got. I actually think some of it spilled on the way to the table too. To each their own i guess. Its one of MY faves though. Rock on Beast!

    Tasty Food, Small Portions, Overpriced

    I know, I know, they lectured us all about the "tapas" nature of the dishes. Well, they may be tapas-sized but they're definitely full-sized-entree priced. The bill got awfully pricey awfully fast. That said, the food itself what there was of it was actually quite delicious.
