Really nice for a bottomless brunch. Fun atmosphere. Waiters not that attentive when you need drinks but it was fine they were still strong.

We waited 40 minutes past our reservation time and our food took an hour and thirty minutes. Food arrived cold and not good. Terrible experience.

Had a great experience at Essex. Our waitress was amazing, friendly and attentive. We sat outside, great set up. Fun crowd. Amazing selection of brunch options to suit all moods. Everyone enjoyed their choices. Will definitely go back.

The new location is beautiful and the waitress was good. I thought the hostess was very friendly and was probably the best part of the experience. For vegans, they took out some of the choices I loved for sides so I didn’t enjoy my food as much as I did in the past. What I hated about the experience is how much staff rushed you to get out. Even when I was putting my coat on, someone came and reminded me again it’s fine to leave. I use to love this place as a wonderful lively hotspot a vegan can enjoy. I probably won’t go back and go to other places where I can enjoy a bigger variety of food and don’t feel so rushed when I’m paying for a meal.

Location has great ambience for brunch but service wasn't the greatest. Altho they say kids are welcomed, I wouldn't bring them. Theres no kids menu. How can you not have classic chicken tenders and fries? Chef was also not willing to accommodate other requests. Paid adult brunch prices for kids, yet they barely ate. Smh. As far as service, it was good at first but then you had to stand or wave your hands, to get someone's attention. And then to top it off, we were told we had rush out & pay the bill for another group of guests were waiting, yet other parties sitting around us were there for longer time. Maybe things would be better on another day, but Just not sure, if I'd go again 😕

This is my second time doing brunch at Essex and both times, my experience has been spectacular. They really *mean* bottomless when they say it. The staff is fun and friendly. They are part of what makes the experience so enjoyable. It was pretty loud in there but not so loud you couldn’t make conversation at your own table. Food was great and the value for the money is unmatched. Will definitely be returning.

They just need to move a bit faster with the mimosas. That’s all.

This was a last minute reservation and it was amazing. We all loved the food. Violas, our waitress, was amazing. She was so attentive, sweet, and fun. We even got to meet the Chef! The risotto was textures and had kernels of corn and asparagus. My other friends for the steak with the bone arrow butter and loved it. My other friend has a perfectly cooked salmon with tabouleh. We had the blood orange margarita pitcher. Great value! Potent! And we all loved the passion fruit panna cotta and dark chocolate mousse. Incredible!!!

We came to celebrate a birthday and we had a great time! The food was great and service was great. Sometimes with a boozy brunch you don't always get your moneys worth but they made sure our glasses were always full!

Quiet rainy night. Not crowded. Server very attentive and friendly. A bit in the pricey side but I guess that’s how diner fare usually goes.

The food and the service was great!!! Management was a little off putting and not welcoming. Security outside was pleasant and professional. Waitress was friendly and attentive. Best brunch I've had in a long while! Noises were way loud and it wasn't the most updated or cleanest place I've eaten but I'll return based on the food alone!

Essex was great for bottomless mimosas and the quick breakfast. The steak wasn't what my partner thought it would be, and we wished that the heating lamp reached us sitting down at the table. Overall, fine experience and I'm sure indoor dining would've been better suited for us. I don't see myself eating here again, but I would try it out and be the first there for indoor.

Our experience was great! The bottomless brunch has a great value. The food was delicious and the servers continue to fill your drink! My only complaint is that they tried to close us out before the 1.5 hour limit, but they still were very respectful.

Great ambiance and atmosphere, the burrata flatbread was delicious, kudos to the scallops and my wife had the Salmon with kale and quinoa (which did look very healthy). Great Bullet Old fashion with the big ice cube which it gave a nice presentation!
Thank you Essex, will be back
