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!
Delicious and fresh ! Beautiful presentation and great menu selection. It was a highlight of our visit to Miami Beach area . We sat outside on the deck which was lovely .
Creative chef. Very good food. The outdoor patio area is a wonderful, serene setting. Servers are attentive and friendly, but they could use better training in terms of knowing the menu and exactly how dished are prepared.
Great place for Sunday brunch. Staff was nice and attentive. Patio was pleasant. Food was great!!
The mahi was very good the flatbread was cold and the chicken was just ok. The drinks were overpriced but the service was very good
We dined here on New Year's Eve. The setting was beautiful, surrounded by lush tropical plants. The meal was good but not great. The service was also good, but not as "connected" as was hoping. This is likely due to being in a very busy touristy area. If the food and service was as good as the atmosphere, it would be superb. As it was, very good.
We went here for our anniversary. My husband had the duck and I had the special, scallops. Both were absolutely spectacular. Our waiter and the manager were so sweet. I put in our reservations that we did want not want to be seated near children, we were one of 2 tables sat when a family came in with 2 kids and the hostess sat them next to us. We asked to be moved and the waiter was more then understanding. Towards the end of our meal the hostess (who we asked again not to be seated near children and a quiet location) seated a family of six next to us. The waiter came by and apologized and the manager gave us 2 drinks on the house for our anniversary. We really were so pleased with everything except the fact hat the hostess just wasn’t paying attention to detail in such a high caliber restaurant. I wish we could remember our waiters name.
I’ve been wanting to check out Essensia for awhile now so we stopped for lunch on a recent trip down. The food & service were great — and because we had a few people with food sensitivities, we were thrilled with all of the options available
Best part of our experience was our waiter Alex. He was outstanding!!!
