Would like to go back to have one of their main entree's or pasta dishes. We went after a Smith Center performance for shared items only.

This is an amazing place. So nice to get off the strip and into a different vibe. The food was delicious. We ordered multiple appetizers and split two entree between 4 of us. The pasta was fresh and inventive. I recommend the cauliflower appetizer and, if available, their duck pasta dish. Their butterscotch dessert was to die for....

The food at Esther's is fantastic. We loved every dish we have ever ordered. We have been there every time we visit Las Vegas, but unfortunately, I don't know if we will return as the noise level is deafening.

My sister and I tumbled in one blustery weekday evening and sat at the bar. We were treated like royalty and had such a wonderful time laughing with staff, despite the kitchen having run out of a few desired items. Thank you for a lovely experience.

All the best,
Lindsay

I would go again and would recommend it. I did like the food the presentation and the service. Too noisy for a great conversation. In fact, we discussed it at the table. It seems that when a restaurant has that noise level, that it accelerates because people talk louder in order to be heard at their table.
It is unfortunate that popular restaurants these days all have this issue it seems

Home made pasta dishes such as carbonara, lobster was fine but not outstanding.
They could have done better if the owner is there on Saturday night.
Do I want to go back again? Probably yes.

We had friends in from out of town and have heard nothing but great reviews about Esther's Kitchen - so we made a reservation a week out! The vibe is great - there is a good mix of people of all ages, bustling open kitchen, great service and most of all fantastic food! Visually spectacular and equally as tasty! Cocktails were fantastic as well!

The sour dough bread and burrata is a must - amazing night!

Service was good and all dishes were excellent. Only thing was the malfada nero pasta was overpowered by the lemon taste which does not allow the others components like truffle and lobster to shine

Otherwise great restaurant

It is a treat to find a “real” restaurant in Las Vegas , one that has a point of view, a reasonable size, a chef that obviously cares, and not a whiff of playing to a mass crowd. Food was delicious -my only nit-pick was perhaps an occasional tendency to err on the side of being overly rich. Portions were more than ample. Wine list is excellent with everything available by the glass as well as by the bottle. I highly recommend ending with the polenta cake!

We loved the food here! It's a very small space, and there is no waiting area. We were annoyed to wait until 7pm to be seated for our 6;30 reservation. Perhaps their reserved blocks of time need to be longer to avoid overcrowding? According to the hostess, several people were "closed out" but didn't leave. When the food came, all was forgiven. Caesar salad, beet salad, beef cheeks all delicious. We'll be back, hopefully on a less busy night!

The food and service were really great. Highly recommend the charcuterie board but it’s enough for 4-5 people. Beet salad was special and the porchetta was amazing. Very nice wine list with nothing over $40.

Esther’s is an experience to be savored, not rushed. The sourdough bread was unbelievably delicious. I ordered the Caesar salad which may be the best Caesar that I have ever had. It was full of the classic flavors, but nothing stood out or overwhelmed the palate. I also had the Cacio e Pepe pasta, a dish which is not complex, but in the right hands, a masterpiece. This was a Picasso! Fabulous. For dessert, the Butterscotch budino was a hit! We will be back...soon!

Simply phenomenal! Took my mom here for our monthly lunch out, I know the talent that is in this kitchen but to hear from my mom made it even that much greater! At first she could not understand why we are paying for a bread service, that was until she tried it with the great condiments served with it! This is simply one of the best restaurants in town should be supported by everyone!

I really wanted to like this spot but I’m not sure why there are so many positive reviews. It was incredibly loud and the food was just ok. Our pasta was VERY al dente, a common issue according to five different friends who have also had disappointing meals at Esther’s.
