Mussels were very good, steak was tasty, good burger however the brussel sprouts side is lacking. They break the brussel sprouts down far too much instead of serving them whole or cut in half.

My server Viosa B was impressive.
She was very attentive and had a very cool personality.
I work in the food industry and there are key elements that I look for such as availability, attentive and personality. My server was charismatic. Viosa’s personality was very warm and she smiled a lot even tho she was wearing a mask I could still see she was smiling.
Overall the food was really delicious. We had brunch and the bottomless mimosas were strong but also really good.

I was there when it was outside dining - the set up on the street is very nice and there was distance from other tables which was great. I would totally go back.

The service was very slow and meals came out very far apart. Several were done with dinner before others received their food.

A great brunch spot with good food and bottomless mimosas filled to the brimThe outside seating is really nice. Umbrellas cover the tables from the sun and keep you cool. My waitress was very attentive.

The food was not very good and we were disappointed in the night overall. Also the drink was very sweet, not much tequila was in the drink.

Brunch at Essex was great! It was very hot out but the food, waiter, hostess and environment was nice. I'm glad that they remained serving Unlimited brunch because a lot of restaurants stopped offering them. I also appreciate the fact there are several vegan options on the menu!

Overall great experience, food was good, priced very reasonably for a place in NYC. The mimosas alone were 9 bucks and the entrees were 22.50. The bottomless drinks and entree ran me 53 (tip included) and had 7 drinks. So I’d say we got our money’s worth and the waitress was always ready to give us another round. Would recommend coming to this location. I will be back.

My first experience at a restaurant since March, and I could not have been happier. The food and service were excellent. The location was convenient. And the weather made the out-of-doors dining perfectly acceptable.
