Food was mediocre but drinks were good. Recommend the screwdriver
Had a nice time but boy do they rush you outta the restaurant. It was pretty stressful.
Very good spot for brunch ! Food was excellent and service was good.
Great experience. Loved it and Hannah B our waitress was great.
Best bottomless brunch!!
Cool Monday night . Relaxed atmosphere, we had the calamari and hamachi crudo to start with . My wife had the salmon and I did have the short ribs as a main course up to perfection. We love Essex , it is our pleasant place (specially during the week) , since the weekend is crowded and hard to get tables. Thanks again Essex!
Fantastic Dinner! We really enjoyed our meal at Essex. The charred octopus was stellar, as was the salmon and the (gigantic) short rib. Great selection of value wines and attentive, but not overbearing, service. Would highly recommend.
Not good. Calamari & Shrimp wontons we’re average at best.
Steak was smothered in butter but edible.
My wife’s salmon was fishy & not edible so we returned it. To the waitresses credit they did take it off the bill. Didn’t offer anything else but not recommend at all.
Staff was friendly, however however we had trouble getting our server’s attention (possibly understaffed? Server had multiple large parties simultaneously). Menu is appealing; execution OK, not fantastic. Potato pancakes were tasty but served unappealingly on a few pieces of wilted lettuce.
Coffee was disappointing; reminded me of a suburban diner.
Great! Would highly recommend for brunch
I ordered the bottomless mimosas and the staff was both courteous and generous. I ordered The Southern which had great gravy, crispy chicken, a flavorful sausage patty, and a soft biscuit. Eggs were slightly over the medium I asked for, but overall were still good and didn't distract. This was my last meal in New York City, and I'm so glad it was here! The decor was very cool and had a lovely industrial vibe with beautiful plants outside. I sat on the upper floor inside the restaurant and had a nice view of the whole place, and the second bar upstairs ensured excellent service. Highly recommend The Essex for Bottomless Brunch
Pretty cool place… great chill vibes
Great friendly service. Was attended to right away upon arriving. Food was as expected.
The service was excellent and it was a wonderful experience overall!
Worst waitress ever, it was 10pm and she was rushing us kitchen gonna close, calamari appetizer was horrible barely any calamari a lot of big jalapeño pieces and whatever else it was mixed with. LITERALLY I COUNTED 7 I complained and she did nothing about it . Not to mention she didn’t give us napkins or tableware I had to get up to get it. I asked for an apple martini on the rocks and she said they don’t have that there… IN NYC ON A SATURDAY.
Don’t waste your time,
It was great for a date night! The server was amazing. She was so attentive of our needs. I will definitely visit again!
Great breakfast! Thank you!
I came here for brunch & the brunch is such a great deal but the security and waitresses just seemed very condescending.
If your looking for a very beautiful well cooked meal while your having drinks and fun this is the exact place to go! It’s very nice inside and outside and filled with people having such a good time at all times! Great place and great food :)
I had a great time enjoying the food and drinks for my birthday here! We were a group of 15 and food and service was great however I was disappointed because they sat us outside towards the end of the block in an area with no decor/music which was the only downside.
Had dinner with Friends on Saturday, and only Restaurant Week menu was available. Food was good, but not great. Recommend the duck and the NY strip.
Service was really good and prices reasonable.
Oysters highly recommended
food for restaurant week was terrific, the meatball with whipped ricotta, the long island duck breast with the blue potatoes and the broccoli rabe, but the service slowed to a crawl as the night wore on the rain picked up and the indoor space became packed, so the charged me for the dessert, the appropriately cold chocolate mousse and tried to get us to leave before serving it, so very good but not great
I had a phenomenal experience. The staff, food and ambiance was pitch perft. The selection of drinks definitely was a plus. The service was great and the music was nice as well. I enjoyed the meatballs, salmon and chocolate mousse.
Essex had an incredible menu for restaurant week! Oysters, octopus, risotto! Amazing! I will definitely return!
Good food, has outdoor dinning. Staffs are friendly. Price is right for restaurant week.
Picked Essex because it was located near Pier 36, and of course, participating in restaurant week.
What an outstanding experience, between the service and wonderful waitresses, and delicious food.
Would definitely return!
Outdoor seating was great. Indoors was very loud, glad we were outdoors.
Good and service were good. Enjoyed the lunch!
Good brunch food with unlimited brunch drinks. Great morning!
very nice except for slow service, but very nice waitress
Great service . Food was solid, everyone has a good time but it was Extremely hot . We were in a corner and everyone was sweating. Couldn’t get any ac.
Great bottomless service. We had to wait over 30 min for our table but it seemed like the fault of other customers and not the restaurant. Good food and good drinks. Would come back!
Outstanding Brunch! Essex certainly lived up to its reputation as a brunch party destination but what surprised us was how good the food was! The "Aristocrat" with house made lox and caviar was unique and beautifully presented. Steak and Eggs was with a thick NY strip and not a skinny breakfast steak like you get in some places. We liked home fries so much we got extra orders. And yes, it certainly was a party--dance music was playing and mimosas were endless. We'll be back!
Extremely disappointed in the service. I booked a table for 15 people to celebrate my boyfriends birthday - we were made to wait an hour past our booking time outside in the heat because staff refused to kick the table before us out, despite them paying the bill prior to our booking. The table wasn’t cleaned properly, and the food was sub-par. We had reservations following our booking which we missed due to the length of time we waited to be seated and for our food to come out. I will not be returning for a large group booking, despite this restaurant being infamous for a ‘vibe’ - the only vibe I felt was disappointment.
Good options for brunch with good food. The service was good and kept us updated on our remaining time for unlimited Mimosas during our 90 minutes.
The steak was not good. It was tough, and cold, and when we sent it back to have it warmed up, it came back over cooked and dry. They did not charge us for it, so that was nice. Even though the manchego mac and cheese and oysters and sorbet were good, this place is overpriced.
For an early dinner, not crowded, lovely outdoor seating, delicious food.
service was slow given that it was NOT crowded. Food was quite good
Restaurant week menu was comprehensive. There was something for everyone. The food was good.
Food and atmosphere was very pleasant, the server wasn’t very attentive or good. I would go back again.
Drinks were horrible. Ordered 4 different cocktails between myself and my best friend. Appetizers were delicious but main course was disappointing. Service was non existent, almost an hour wait between appetizers and main course and then was brought out the wrong desserts. Was checked on twice and had to flag down the waitress the entire meal. Will not be back.
