A bit pricey

Went for the senior dinner menu during the week. The chef was talented and entertaining. The food was good but 2 people split 4 shrimp. Vegetables and rice. Did come with an appetizer to split. 2 senior drinks and the bill was still over $50. I hear the sushi/sashimi is very good.

Surprising find in Prescott. They moved locations and quadrupled the size. At first had some growing pains with service. Now they have it right! Fresh fish comes in on Thursday so plan accordingly. We usually sit at the sushi bar and have never been disappointed. Ask the chef what he suggests. We enjoy the sweet shrimp with fried heads and... More

Long time fan of this place since their original location on Gurley (which I miss). Just wish they were still open for lunch so I could enjoy them more often.

Our first time and really enjoyed the food. The tempan chef was entertaining and prepared a very good meal. Service was good although the bar was not open. Beer and wine was available at the table. Seems to be very clean but too bright and no ambiance. They recently relocated, so maybe they will bring in some decor to soften... More

I like Esoji but I have only gone there for lunch. I always get the same thing -- the large udon noodle soup with tempura. They do this deeeee-lishus-leeeeee.... It is yummy. I do feel it is quite expensive and haven't been since they opened up on Iron Springs... One final workd, the service was not very friendly but the... More

Came back from six months in upstate NY and thought they went out of business. I was so happy to find out they just moved. Great food. The baked mussels are delicious. Everything I've tried has been has been good. We are never disappointed at Esoji.

First of all, the curb appeal of this restaurant is not sparkling. An unwound garden hose was on the porch and the exterior of the building is in need of some fresh paint. That being said, we were the only ones enjoying the hibachi grill feature of this restaurant. Entrees are quite expensive, but we were able to share an... More

I am delighted to see that since Esoji has moved from their old location on Gurley St. to their new, much larger location at 1355 Iron Springs Rd and added a teppanyaki grill (where the chef cooks in front of you), they seem to be very, very popular. The restaurant is open and airy with lovely light fixtures over the... More
