Went there on my birthday yesterday evening and the drinks took 20min every time. Ordered truffle fries, came cold, sent them back to get them re-made, that took 35min. Food was sub-par. Server was friendly. Overall restaurant was way understaffed. Server didn’t note birthday or sent dessert. Then we’re rushed because the kitchen was closing. Got there at 9, didn’t actually eat our entrees until 10:30pm. Had to ask for silverware, napkins and more water. Felt neglected as a paying guest. Music too loud. Not going back there ever again
Nice, attentive staff. Big tables and varied menu to accommodate larger parties. Excellent drinks. Food was good if not amazing.
Thanks for letting me switch tables mid-reservation
I really enjoyed this place. Food was very good our waitress was fantastic. We sat outside and you could not hear people talking at the other tables. Overall a very pleasant experience. Would definitely recommend this place.
Great date night dinner. Restaurant was quiet on a Monday so Manager offered us at large banquette. Beautiful, stylish room, well-priced wine list and excellent food. Chocolate Mousse is to die for!
Don't go for the food. It's more about drinking and the social scene, if that's what your looking for!
My friend and I did a Sunday brunch at Essex. The reviews were 50/50 but we decided to go anyway! The vibe was fun and loud the way we like Sunday brunch. The mimosas were unlimited and kept coming the entire time, no complaints there! The food ( shrimp & grits , Mexican breakfast) were not that great, in fact we didn't finish it. Overall the vibe was nice and I will return but will definitely order something different!
Everything was great except that I made a reservation a week in advance to make sure we had a decent table and once we shows up we were sat at a two top in the way of the front door over a hot air vent thing on the street where they pulled up a chair, when I asked about another table they said sorry everything is reserved. I don’t understand why once reservation is valued more than another. They then sat us at the bar and within the time we were there quite a few four and three tops were open. Might be back but I would say don’t bother with your reservation time since they might just throw it together last minute anyways.
pretty outdoor setting but lack of air made it warm.
The food is great and the drinks are always flowing
The crispy gnocchi will never disappoint!
AC not great for humid summers
Had a wonderful birthday here with a table of 10. The drinks were as free-flowing as one could wish; my steak was a tad bit over cooked but my friend’s perfectly-cooked Mac and cheese salvaged things kn the food end. One piece of advice: stick to one or two drinks at the most for the Happy Hour. Marlene, our server, was also a delight throughout our meal. Thank you, Essex & Marlene, for a memorable 30th!
Bad food, bad service. Cups were dirty. Found bone in chicken.
WE ALWAYS LOVE ESSeEx! THE BEST BRUCNH!
Took a friend out for brunch and had a fantastic time . Our food was great and our server was always ready refilling our drinks .. great place
First off, we got to the restaurant and we had to wait outside in the pouring rain for about ten minutes even though we had a reservation. When we got to our table, my party did the bottomless brunch. We were constantly waving people down and even leaving our seat to get refills on our drinks. When I asked if we could have a pitcher for our table they told me no. Multiple peoples food in my party was not what they ordered and it got sent back. Overall the atmosphere with a big group of people was nice but the overall service was terrible
We were seated outside even though it was raining hard and 50 degrees. No heaters. We kept our jackets on the whole time. The food was really good and we ordered mimosas for endless brunch. Just wish they had heaters out and a little more protection from the rain
The meal itself was very good and Essex does a great job keeping mimosas filled for the bottomless brunch. Only serious complaint is that the check-in system is chaotic at best, our reservation was for 3pm and we weren’t seated until 3:30, and even then only because a bouncer made sure the host was aware we needed to check in.
Upstairs was too hot. Food came out quickly though.
ordered oysters, steak, salmon, burger. The burger was the best. Drinks were good. Good for a group.
Great atmosphere! The patio had a beautiful touch and very homie! The burrata flatbread and tuna poke was up to perfection. Than I had the short ribs burger and my girlfriend had the Scallops. Overall was a delicious dinner with a welcoming touch of ambience.
So this is normally my go to brunch spot whenever I want to celebrate. However my experience was not the greatest this time around but because of the prompt and efficient service of the staff and management team who tried their best to make sure my table left happy is why I won't go into details and will give them another try.
Food was awful
Our girls brunch was a blast! I had read other reviews that the food was mediocre, but we thought our food was amazing! The bottomless brunch refills were timely- they don’t let your glass go empty! It was a great time!
Good food , great brunch spot
Brunch was a great value. Food wasn’t impressive but the service was amazing!
Food was delicious! Server was attentive and service was fast.
Great food, great service. We were a big group and the service was fantastic and attentive
The service was impeccable. The waitress was attentive without being bothersome. The table was wobbly. They corrected it within 2 mins of us informing the waitress. Highly recommend this place.
The staff are fantastic! Lively environment.
Mother’s Day outing it was nice intimate and the candle ambiance was nice the food ... calamari was great and I got medium rare steak with fries sooooo gooood the drinks were not up to par I like nice strong drinks and it tasted more like a Virgin drink and not enough love in those ... but the service and the food and the inside tables nice set up potential bar level
Perfect Mother's Day brunch. Loved the potato pancakes.
Service was below average and food was mediocre
We really enjoyed eating at Essex. A great place to go after seeing a movie at Regal or for a meal or drinks. The food was excellent and there was great energy. If we stayed later, I'm sure it would be a fun place to linger with drinks. Our server was excellent. She gave us enough time to decide, had helpful input and didn't rush us during the meal. She checked back to see if we needed anything else. We'll definitely go back.
Wonderful brunch ans staff!
Best brunch place! Always my go to spot for some good brunch.
We will definitely return.
Great. Lots of fun. Kinda slow service upstairs though.
