Absolutely fantastic pastas, easily the best carbonara I've ever had. And the cocktails are great, especially since I'm a sucker for yuzu.

James Trees' place is legit. We're from the Bay Area and Flour + Water is my standard. Esther's Kitchen rises above.

If you are trying to get off of The Strip, come to Esther’s. You will not be disappointed! Food was excellent and the bread- ah, the bread, it is to die for. Ambience was upscale and beer and wine selection was above par.

Food was great! We told our server we wanted to be leisurely and bring courses out slowly but everything we ordered came almost all together and space on the table was very tight! We finished our wine at the bar and the bartender was great even though he knew we were just finishing up at the bar! It was great overall!

I discovered Esther's last year and it has become my favorite place! I went for brunch with my friends and our waiter (I can't remember his name, possibly Alex), was super friendly and nice. He also sang happy birthday to me after we finished eating. I also love their pasta happy hour!

Our third time there and our opinion of Ester's Kitchen just keeps getting better. You get a world class meal with impeccable and super friendly service. My only complaint is that many others have discovered Esther's as well and it can be hard to get a reservation. Secret discount - if you are going to see a play at neighboring Majestic Theater (which you must) you get a 25% discount on your whole meal, drinks incuded!! Thanks Esther's for taking a chance on the Art's District and for such a great place. We'll see you again.

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....

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,

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!
