Esquire Grill Ratings and Reviews
The appetizer & entrees were delicious! But the sides that came with the entrees were odd choices & tiny. There were more stems than broccolini. And my date's farrow was watery. I've made farrow & that is wrong. Good thing we were there to enjoy ourselves no matter what because our waiter was so bad. We didn't even find out his name . He handed us our bill paper clipped to a review card (Classy!) and said he needed all the help he could get. I can't disagree with him. Not even a leather bill holder or tray! He never smiled either. I wanted to ask for a different section right off the bat. Such a contrast to the fabulous service we got at Ruth's Chris.
Dinner before Giselle at Sacramento Ballet. We both had the winter squash soup -- very tasty -- and stuffed eggs that were nothing special. I had a pork chop: huge and perfectly cooked. Esquire Grill seems to scrimp on the veggies; what was on my plate was nowhere near a standard "serving." My friend tried the special: prosciutto-wrapped cod -- a weird choice for her and for the restaurant. Her comment: What was the point?
A final note: the coffee was awful.
Valentines date. It was $75 per person no matter what you ordered that's what sucked :/ and their scallops my husband didn't like as well as the meat they brought in was very pink ( we don't enjoy showy red or pink) but over all it was good a bit pricey and loud!
New Chef, new menu, several additions and specials. Great evening out with wife, daughter and her boyfriend. Our favorite restraunt and then catch a movie at the Esquire IMAX. Excellent food and wonderful evening. To top it off we had the best server in town. Always treated as family.
We had cocktails which were good, while waiting for our table (we got there early). The service was very pleasant and efficient. I had a hamburger with choice of salad, fries or soup for $18 (I think that was about the price). It was very good: fresh bun, thick juicy patty, slice of tomato, fresh lettuce and red onion. Fries were a little bigger than shoestring, which I like. I couldn’t finish them. My friend had petrale sole, which she said was good. It was about $22. We were going to the theater which started at 8:00, and they got us through with plenty of time to spare (6:30 reservation).
My friends and I frequently go to Esquire Grill, and we have never been disappointed. The food is always so flavorful, and the servers are very knowledgeable. They've never steered us wrong with their recommendations or answering our questions about a dish. Esquire Grill is one of our favorite places.
We really enjoyed the Esquire Grill. The service was very good, the food was delicious.
Only the noise level was high and the prices are somewhat expensive, but overall, it is a perfect place to eat before going to a concert at the Community Theater across the street.
This was our first visit to the Esquire Grille. We were looking for a nice late evening dinner, a quiet place, and this did not disappoint. Our food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was perfect for what we were looking for. We arrived around 8:15, were greeted and served by excellent staff and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely visit there again soon.
