Screen International - Anthony Kaufman
The film’s second act is near spot-on comedy of discomfort.
75
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
The funny, touching and vital Beatriz at Dinner probably tackles way more than it can handle, but so what? Godspeed. You won't know what hit you.
75
Consequence of Sound - Dominick Suzanne-Mayer
Beatriz at Dinner has an ear for the microaggressions that tend to constitute so much modern racism, and these moments tend to play better than the broader attempts at cultural commentary.
70
Variety - Owen Gleiberman
Hayek’s performance, by the end, grows unexpectedly moving. Yet Beatriz at Dinner is a little tidy. It seizes and charms without soaring.

New York Magazine (Vulture) - Emily Yoshida
Beatriz at Dinner may not stick the landing, but its central clash between healers and destroyers maintains its choke hold long after the credits have rolled.
