    The food and the service is good. It would be nice to add more non-alcoholic /mocktail options on the drink menu.

    The service was pretty indifferent, kinda of like sitting at the kiddie table at a family gathering. We selected the restaurant based on the tasting menu’s experience, but they changed the days to only Thursdays. Open table should change this on their site. We only had a salad and entrees, but service was slow and indifferent, it took nearly two hours. Rarely checked and asked if we needed anything or more drinks. Beware, 18% gratuity is automatically added to bill, but waiter did not mention it. It was just OK to us. Also it seemed our entrees sat an awhile before being served.

    Flavorful & Fabulous! One of my favorite restaurants in Miami. Romantic ambiance in a lush tropical setting. Diverse and creative menu with locally sourced, organic ingredients. Fabulous cocktail and wine list. Service was excellent. Enjoyed the jungle curry dish with shrimp.

    Our 3rd visit to the Palms and probably 4th to Essensia. Beautiful ambience. We got a table outside. Drinks were good and food delicious! Shrimp ceviche with Tiger milk and black truffle 🩷 Also had yummy roasted corn and leek soup. Chocolate pot de creme was an outstanding finish. Server was delightful! Probably will go back tomorrow for lunch!

    Booked 5:30 reservation on a Saturday night and we were the only guests during our meal. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. However, food was overpriced and under-flavored. Ordered a filet medium and it seemed like it was a bad cut of meat (previously frozen) and overcooked. Overall would not book dinner reservations here again. Underwhelming and $$$ for value.
