Esin has been a neighborhood jewel since opening in 1998. The name Esin is not only the name of one of the owners but also means “inspiration”. The food is the passion of Chef & Owners Curtis and Esin deCarion. They strive to create cuisine that is fresh, seasonal, and prepared with great care. The fare is American with bits of Mediterranean influences. Esin has been recognized by Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, Bon Appetit & Sunset magazines.
Esin Restaurant & Bar relocated in July of 2008 to the Newest upscale lifestyle center The Rose Garden in Danville. The freshly designed dining room offers warm and comforting tones.
Be sure to save room for one of Esin’s fresh made desserts that have become so well known.

As always the food was excellent. Love the pot roast. We had a quiet booth this time so much improved conversation. Coconut Cream Tart and Lemon Tart delicious.

We chose this restaurant because the reviews said it was good for quiet conversation. Our table was near the bar and the front door so it didn't meet that expectation. Next time, we'll ask for a table away from the bar. That was our only complaint. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. This will be our new "go to" restaurant in Danville.

I have dined here countless times. It is always perfect. I did order an unusual appetizer this time. It was a gnocchi cheese starter. I would not recommend that particular item.

I have been to a great deal of restaurants and have to say that I was a bit disappointed with the service. I felt that the food was good but the ambiance and treatment was very unpleasant and something that I have never and hope no one has to experience.

Not bad for Danville dining. Nice good, good atmosphere. OK prices, good cocktails. Service seemed a bit off to be considered fine dining but acceptable for the price.

I chose Esin for our fiftieth wedding anniversary because we have never had a disappointing meal. Our server Brian was absolutely outstanding.
All courses were excellent. I love creme brulee and have enjoyed it worldwide for many years. Esin did not disappoint. Possibly the best restaurant in Danville and surrounding towns.\

Very comfortable restaurant. Went on a Saturday night, early at 5pm fairly quiet and by 6 it was packed. That explains the time choices we had were for 5 or 8.
Good menu and everything was cooked just right.
Server, Margarita was delightful and engaging.

Food was exceptional. Service was outstanding - a knowledgable and very responsive waiter. Bus personnel were very attentive but not hovering. Atmosphere was very comfortable. Not, in any way, rushed. A very memorable & delightful luncheon experience. We look forward to returning for Dinner very soon.

The service was very good, but the food has very poor. The onion soup was very bad flavor wise. The pot roast was very salty and tough. The risotto very bland. The baklava had carmel sauce rather than honey, was doughy not flaky.
