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.

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.

We love Esin. We came with friend for dinner on Valentines Day. Usually, holiday dinners at restaurants are not very good. However, at Esin, it was wonderful. We were given a booth (which I asked for since our friend has a hearing problem), and they graciously cleared one for us in a quiet area. The service was the best we have ever had, and the food was great. It is our favorite place in our area.

My husband and I come here every Valentine's Day. Our one night away without 3 kids makes this a perfect and relaxing dining experience. The food is always exquisite so we always make a point to try something new from the menu.

Like always Esin overall is a consistent, great local restaurant. This time we both had the philo wrapped chicken w/risotto and it was absolutely excellent. The side of bacon Brussels sprouts were undercooked and therefore chewy—maybe the first real miss in all the years we’ve been coming to Esin. Overall highly recommend. Great service. Great food.

Esin is our Valentines date tradition. We tend to end up in the tables squeezed into the middle of the main room, which isn't as cozy as a small booth or other tables. I prefer fish or seafood, so I ordered the Valentines special - salad, scallops on cauliflower and dessert. My husband ordered the salad with apples and onion soup. Everything was excellent. It's nice to have a fine-dining-but-not-too-stuffy restaurant like this on the East Bay.
