Such a great find! Do yourself a favor and skip the pricey Strip restaurants and eat here instead. Pasta freshly made and cooked perfectly al dente. Great option for my vegetarian friend. Lastly the service was outstanding! Juan was my favorite person all day!

Some items were phenomenal and some things were ok. Nothing was bad though. I wasn’t crazy about the carbonara that much even though it was highly recommend, But it’s probably a personal preference thing. Or it could be that my taste buds were worn out from the amazing beets, they were phenomenal. And service was probably the best I’ve gotten in vegas. But overall I love this place and anything in this area. You really forget that you’re in Vegas and you think you’re in a cultured city like SF or Seattle.

The food and service were awesome. The manager even printed show tickets for us because I forgot them at home!

Been to Esther's Kitchen twice. Both times food was incredible. Be sure to order the cauliflower appetizer and the beets, if they're on the menu. I had pasta both times . . . absolutely incredible. The chef has real talent. AND it's not expensive.

The food was fantastic! Our waiter was super patient bc we had a lot of questions as two are of party were “meat and potato “ guys and he was spot on with the service. One negative- the gentleman who preps the food as you can see it being done, took a pen from behind his ear wrote on some containers that he carted off I assume to the refrigerator and then came back put the pen back behind his ear but NEVER washed his hands also instead of a clean cloth wiping the excess off plates headed out to diners, he uses his hands that we never saw being washed.

Loved everything about it! Esther's Kitchen is off the beaten path in Las Vegas if you are looking for something on the Strip or Freemont area. The locals know this place in the Arts District though. Cool vibe, great cocktails, AMAZING food and excellent; friendly service. We ate prime time on a Saturday night so the place was buzzing and noisy but fun. If you want a quiet spot, this isn't it during peak time. If you want a great dining experience at reasonable prices in a sweet spot with lots of energy, this is your place.

Excellent food, outstanding service. Definite recommend.
Woman at the bar couldn’t have been nicer and more helpful. Often it’s so hard to get bartender’s attention when you are standing waiting to be seated. She was attentive and friendly even though the place was packed.

Esther's doesnt need another raving review but it deserves one. It's a cramped and loud place but neither seems noticeable or bothersome once you are seated. The food and service are both beyond expectations. The charcuterie board is a must. Tried several pasta dishes and they were all fabulous. I went for a business dinner and have been raving about it since our dinner.

After raving about Esther's and referring many friends and colleagues since first dining there, the service was so bad that I can no longer as it totally ruined our evening. We arrived and wanted a drink and appetizer to unwind as we looked over the menu. Our waiter would not let us until order until we had the entire meal selected. After I pushed back, we were punished as our entire meal, appetizer, salad and entrees were delivered rapid fire (all within one minute). Our waiter looked dumbfounded when we complained about not being able to enjoy our meal. Our drinks did not arrive until after our entrees were complete. Food is great but only one part of the experience. It was a bad one we'll not be repeating

Cannot recommend this place enough. My husband and I go when we are in Las Vegas. This past weekend we took 5 of our friends who were in town as well. The house-made pasta is amazing, but the staff and the ambiance contribute to an overall great experience.

Excellent overall. The service and food were impeccable. Exactly what we wanted pre-theater. My wife had the rigatoni which we both loved. For wine the Nebbiolo was a great pairing—just the right combination of dark fruit and tannic structure. To start we had the sourdough bread with oil and sweet butter. So delicious!

Once I was able to park the experience was wonderful. Food and service very good. But anyone should take Uber or Lyft or taxi. Parking is pretty much non-existent.

Family and friend dinner - it was way too loud and it smelled like weed. I couldn’t hear our conversation. Service was awesome and food yummy but just too too too loud. Not for a date or family dinner, seems like a place for happy hour which is too bad because the food was actually delicious.

Food and ambiance are great. The server who served us was also doing a good job however we had to wait for around 45 mins before being seated. There was a lot of confusion on how and where they were going to seat us. finally we were and asked to be moved to a bigger empty table at some time. the said they were expecting a party of 6 and declined us as we were 5 . later on it turns out that there were only 3 people sitting
