The staff was very friendly and responsible. The food tastes great.
Excellent experience! I was staying at the hotel and decided to have dinner there. Enjoyed the outside atmosphere, the decoration and had a very tasty vegan dish abd glass of wine. Live music at the bar and very good service made it perfect.
Food was excellent as was the service. We were there to celebrate an anniversary and they offered a complimentary drink to us and had a few of the staff stop by to wish us a happy anniversary. Very relaxing to be sitting on the outdoor deck and relaxing. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Food and service was wonderful! Pressed juice menu was delicious and refreshing during travel! Great portion sizes at this restaurant!
Food was really good but a bit pricey and small servings
Place was good. The waitstaff was a little slow. We had to get up and ask to get our server cause they wouldn't come to the table to ask "how's everything going." Not sure if I would come back.
Great food, but service wasn't there... We arrived on time for our booking but felt very rushed the whole time. Ambience is good but there are better options available nearby for the same (and less) price point. Worth trying but not a restaurant we would go back too.
Outstanding location, service and vibe. Celebrated Anniversary, perfect location.
The food was outstanding and very fresh! The service was great also! The restaurant is beautiful, just stunning.
The only thing I didn't like is that the tip is included (18%). I never like it when restaurants do this; I prefer to do my own tip based on service. I would have tipped 22% but the forced tip put a bad taste in my mouth.
great menu, nice wine list, really great service....GOGOGO
The menu has a lot of variety and I liked it but the food wasn’t all that great. My steak was very cheery but I didn’t enjoy the ceviche. I would go back !
We loved our Miami Spice meals! Ceviche, churrasco & eggs, salmon with a killer chutney!
The food was delicious. But our food took forever to get to the table.
A very nice environment, great tasty food and excellent service
It was a perfect dinner! Food, ambiance and service were outstanding! I forgot my jacket there and by the time I got home the restaurant had already called to inform me and had put it into safekeeping so I could get it the next day. Very, very thoughtful.
Excellent and healthy food! The beet salad was my favorite. Would definitely go back again!
I’m coming back again
Food was great. It was a bit humid outside so we sat inside.
Amazing food, wonderful ambiance. A bit pricey
Booked for Mother's Day brunch. The only option was a buffet and it was quite limitied in choices. It was disappointing.
A great experience. Outstanding Ambience, good food and very good service.
Absolutely fantastic! Food is so delicious and fresh.
Just be prepared when crowded can be noisy.
Wonderful meal! Attentive service although it was a bit slow. Overall we had a great time!
I am a big Essensia fan. What a charming setting. Farm to table concept works there. Very accomplished kitchen. Next time o am going to ask to see the proverbial herb garden on the property. My only nit to pick is, though small, irksome. The wait staff at Essensia must be trained to pull plates off the table before all diners are finished their course. . Stop doing that please?
Everything good. That was unbelievable good good!!
Great food and great service
Lovely setting but underwhelming from a restaurant claiming to be an assault on the senses
We had a fabulous dinner. The wait staff was great the setting perfect. Very very happy with the dining experience
Great place and great food. Perfect
We had lunch here outside before a massage - salads were good, ordered very basic - then had dinner inside in the restaurant. We were the only people inside as outside was full. It was a nice quiet atmosphere and service was great - our server even brought us pillows for our backs because the chairs are very deep. Risotto and lamb was delicious!
The food was good and fresh, atmosphere on the exterior terrace was nice. That being said the service was very disappointing, even disrespectful. The wine selection was limited at best.
Lovely restaurant with delicious food. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful, and you can dine inside or al fresco.
My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon and the staff was more than accommodating. I wish I would have gotten the gentleman’s name that gave us free drinks. They really went over and beyond and made the rest of our evening special. Thank you to everyone!
What a surprisingly bad experience we had at Essensia. The place is beautiful, but everything else was unexpectedly bad. First, our waiter came and went as he pleased and was inattentive. We had to wave him down to get service. The pizza appetizer had a thin but mushy crust. The entres came late. I ordered lamb chops. They came cold. When I notified the waiter, he actually said, “Lamb chops are supposed to be served at room temperature!” Outrageous. Lots of money for bad service and bad food. That’s what we got at Essensia.
We were literally the only table in the restaurant for lunch. Despite that the service though friendly was non existent. The food is mediocre. Tough to see a reason to return.
We had a very good evening but it was very expensive
I dined at Essensia everyday for 5 days while I was staying at The Palms. I was very pleased with the menu and the service. The portions are perfect, and I truly enjoyed that the meals often featured produce straight from the kitchen garden!
Honestly, we went for the burger as the concierge at Edition said it was the best. And it is! Had a great salad to start. Lovely porch dining and warm staff. Just wish there was some on street parking. The whole area is under construction!
