The service was great and attentive . The food was Ok but this is judging by the two dishes I had. The iceberg lettuce salad was unimaginative and very ordinary and so was the risotto. I judge a restaurant by the simple question : could I cook this myself easily and I felt I could do better easily and I... More

My partner and I had dinner here Saturday night. We considered Zees and Tiara as alternative options but were convinced by the decor and ambiance of Escabeche. The restaurant is very elegant with table cloths and waiters elegantly dressed. We requested a table by the window overlooking the park across the street and we were easily accommodated. Jack our waiter... More

The staff went out of their way to accommodate our allergies which was a lovely surprise after the unacceptable treatment we received at Grill on King. The service was outstanding from all of the staff. The food was amazing particularly the rack of lamb and chocolate mousse cake which was a like a piece of art.

Escabeche serves very good food in a lovely, formal dining room in the Prince of Wales Hotel. Quality is high and Service is very attentive, with prices on the high side.

My wife and I went for lunch, so presumably the executive chef was not in charge of the kitchen at the time we were there. We were looking forward to a wonderful lunch before heading out to the theatre; unfortunately, we were extremely disappointed. First off, the service started off poorly; the wait staff answered a simple question sarcastically (with... More

Foie gras appetizer was the smallest I've ever had and sat upon a 'crepe'. Crepe? More of a pot scrubber. Chicken supreme main was tender and tasty. Blueberry creme brulee was ugly and tasteless. The service was slow and somewhat inattentive. Not one busboy to be found, we sat with empty dirty dishes for far too long. There are far... More

Excellent food! Awesome service! Very friendly staff. Perfecto! Enjoyed a marvelous award winning martini that was made with whiskey, ice wine, chocolate and a splash of a secret ingredient.

What a great lunch experience! We found the portions to be quite large. My wife and I started with a Charcuterie Board which made up of House Made Pâtés & Terrines, Cured Meats, Pickled Vegetables & Hot House Tomato Jam. We were absolutely thrilled with the overall quality and diversity of the plate which was accented by onions two ways...pickled... More
