Food was fantastic & service was great. Loved the authentic, hand-made pasta.

One small complaint: Coffee was surprisingly limited to just regular coffee & moreover, was not very good. We were expecting espresso & cappucino.

Fantastic food and ambiance. My only note for this restaurant is be aware that it’s a small space and it is quite loud. Other than that, you’ll love it!

The only complaint we have is that when we walked into the restaurant, the hostess did not greet us other than to say “ Do you have a reservation?” No hello, good evening, or anything. We did have a reservation and enjoyed everything else about this experience. The food and our server were outstanding!

Menu selection was unique. Great craft cocktails and food. The fried cauliflower and tomato/peach salad were superb. Service was excellent. It was a bit crowded and very noisy, making it hard to hear the person sitting across the table. However we will go back again.

Food was great. Service was lacking. Food was dropped on table and server walked away without a word. Then no one came to check on us at all until I had to get up and ask for the check.

Arrived at 8:45p for a 9p reservation. Table wasn’t ready for 40 min. Service was slow. Had to ask for drinks. Several menu items were unavailable which was disappointing, but the food we did choose was delicious.

Esther's delivered as usual! Brought 4 work-related friends in town for a trade show and everyone loved it. We shared dishes family style so everyone could try more delicious dishes. Make sure you leave room for the butterscotch dessert. It's light and amazing.

FYI - Reservations are a must.

Local, true and creative dishes that mark this dining experience the “must eat “ place in Las Vegas. Off the strip and spot on food and crafted cocktails. Bravo to the kitchen and staff for never missing a beat and for bringing the passion for great food, perfect wines and well crafted drinks to the table. I’ll be back. Again.

Great to find a real restaurant, with a real chef, in La Vegas. Off the strip, in the new "arts district" (in the the no-mans land between the Strip and downtown) this place has delicious pastas, above all. My experience is that the food tends towards quite rich, but no question it is full of flavor, creativity, and real ingredients. Nice wine program offers every wine by the glass as well as by the bottle.

Had heard about Esther’s kitchen and it did not disappoint me. My dining companion thought it was too noisy. Service was great. Cocktails were outstanding. Wine list is extremely reasonable. Plan to return with a larger group so we can try more things on the menu. Portions were generous.

Food is amazing and our server was great. The hostess almost ruined our entire evening and kept us from eating there at all. Obviously reservations are not concrete in her opinion

Esther's was one of my favorite parts of my recent trip to Vegas. The burrata was off the chain. The staff and vibe are so cool. The pasta was perfect. Our tastebuds were tantalized. This was an unexpected experience and we were so glad we made our way out of the chaos of the strip to eat here.

Esther's Kitchen had a lot of buzz so we were excited to try it. The space was great, the service was outstanding. The food was not the high point. We had a pizza, which was the best at the table. A couple of pastas, but they were lacking. The carbonara sauce was broken, and the spaghetti was heavy on chili oil. I would go back for that pizza, but only the pizza.

Love this restaurant! Great food, great service and love the cocktails and wine list. All wines $10 per glass and $40 per bottle.... All wines by bottle available by the glass, so you can try different wines. Be sure and get the loaf of bread appetizer with several types of spreads. Charcuterie is amazing! All pastas made in house. The swordfish special we had was amazing! We will eat at this restaurant every time we come to Vegas.

This place is a real find in a city full of over-priced chain restaurants. Home cooked food and reasonably priced. The sword fish is especially good.

Food was great and the restaurant had a nice vibe. The service was pretty slow. We noticed our waiter was also working behind the bar and we were on the complete opposite side of the bar in the main dining area.

LOVE the food here and the service is always excellent. However, every time I am here in the summer months - which is half the year in Vegas- it is always too warm to the point of sweating at the table. The restaurant is also extremely loud when crowded, it could really benefit from some sound dampening material installed.

Fantastic find in interesting, most definitely "local" part of town. Everything on the menu sounded great and from the selections we had, I'm guessing everything is as great as it's sounds. Never could imagine getting excited over a cauliflower dish but the cauliflower appetizer was simply amazing because of the outer texture, inner fluffiness and bold flavorings. The ahi crudo was beautiful to look at and the different levels of heat, textures from the sprouts and radishes and nice firm cuts of fish made it also a standout. Agnolotti with pesto and escargot was a nice deconstruction and reconstruction of classic escargot en croute. Panna cotta dessert was a perfect ending for two. Or pre-ending. Then a flight of digestivi (go with the Chef's favorite, the uncordial!) Great cocktail and wine list, super value pricing, friendly, attentive and very helpful service. Make a reservation as there was a line by the time we were done eating at 7pm. And buy the kitchen a round. It's helpfully listed as a menu item!
