We came here for a birthday dinner for the hubs tonight! The service was awesome, and the food even better. Everything we ordered was delicious and fairly priced! The hubs is in love with the katsu curry and im totally coming back to try their curry with cheese :p Loved that they made the day even more special by bringing a dessert with a sparkler out for the hubs. We totally weren't expecting it! Very family friendly :) My daughter is in love with their high chair! More

This was my first time dining here, and I can’t believe I’ve been missing out this whole time! Probably some of the best pasta I’ve ever had. We ordered the portobello mushroom with cream sauce for an appetizer and I had the pesto gnocchi and my husband had the veal parmigiana. All were so good. You could taste the freshness and everything was cooked perfectly. And the tiramisu! So light and and creamy! Oh and how could I forget the focaccia bread to start!! Wow. Just SO good! The service was also perfect, very prompt and friendly. We will definitely be coming back to try all of the other dishes! More

Ethiopian | Downtown, Calgary

We were a party of three with one vegetarian and one who has a low tolerance for very spicy food. The server offered very good vegetarian options, including the vegetarian platter which has a variety of samplers of different dishes. Some of the samplers were truely mild. However, there might be some differences in the perception of what constitutes mild or spicy between our party and the server as about half of that dish is made with a spice level that's beyond mild to us. That said the flavours of the food, the portions and the overall presentation were all wonderfull. The injira was fresh and moist and the lentil dish soft and thick. Service, however, was a different story. The server was very inattentive, had to be approached physically to pay attention to us, had to be specifically asked for refill of water time and time again and took her time even with a simple request for another extra spoon. It is a great place to experience Ethiopian food. However, make sure you have lots of time as it takes long to go through a meal at this place. More

I took my friend here for lunch on her birthday. They do not have much vegetarian options;however, they were able to make their seasonal pasta vegetarian and it was very good. My friend had ordered pasta as well but with chicken; however, the server mixed up our order and brought her vegetarian pasta as well. She ended up ordering chicken on the side. Anyways, we both enjoyed our lunch. I had requested them to arrange a dessert tray for my friend with a birthday message on it and I was very impressed with the arrangement they had. TOTALLY LOVED IT!! Overall, I would definitely recommend essence for any special occasion :-). More
