Diner Reviews
  • "Great place! Kind staff, delicious drinks and food!"

  • "The food and service here is great. Only problem I had was the noise level. It was very hard to hear anyone talking with the loud music playing in the background. Waitress was attentive and friendly. Food is always great it keeps me going back"

  • "Lovely restaurant with nice hosts. They don't know how to open oysters though. Shell fragments and utterly mangled flesh! And another annoyance was the service constantly trying to whisk away plates while people at the table are still eating. Rude! Get it right please."

  • "I came here for a Valentine's day double date. I've come here before and knew it would be great. The food was well prepared and the ambience is lively. Live music was a great touch. Also in a great area. Summit is a block away for an after dinner drink."

  • "We came to Esperanto for a birthday dinner, though I have been here countless times before for brunch (the best). As always, the service was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. Our waitress even brought us complimentary shots of a fruity liquor I've never tried before as a birthday gift. The atmosphere is fun and lively, a little grungy as is the case with many bars and restaurants in alphabet city - there's a certain charm to this that my friends appreciate. I'd certainly recommend Esperanto to anyone looking to have a reasonably priced, fun group dinner or date - and try the tuna."

  • "Went here for brunch...amazing food. So decided to try dinner there and loved the more low key ambiance and dinner menu. Plus there was live flamenco! The server and bartender were very welcoming. Looking forward to going again!"

  • "even thought the food is little pricey, it is pretty fair tasty. Cainpirinha was really strong so we asked to make it sugary on the table. And our waitress didn't even mind what we were doing. I could be pouring gin on the pitcher and she would never realized. She looked little bit high. Sorry to say t but all the party was agree on this. The dessert was the best, as usual. Volcano is simply supreme!!"

  • "Very nice place, food and ambience. Unfortunately, the music was too loud that night for us: why did such good musicians feel they had to amplify their music so much? Next time, they could do even better by turning the volume down a bit. But we definitely recommend your place, it is good and has the potential to become even better."

  • "The waitress was great. The food was excellent. It was a fun vibe. Only complaint is they messed up my reservation after confirming the details twice. It all worked out in the end."
