This place is wonderful. It has terrific food, and a charming cozy atmosphere (candles on the table). The wait staff was friendly and courteous. She was always refilling our water and drinks. Incredible food. I LOVE steak. And this was incredible, without being over powering, or over cooked. Parking can be a hassle, but well worth the ambiance, food, &... More

Nice place, food was average to above, with the groupon we were restricted. I would do the burger or steak tips next time. Will go back. Service was great, with 2 ladies covering the bar and all the tables.

We had a gift certificate for the Essex St. Grille. We walked in and they wanted to seat us near the window. We did not want to be a window display so we requested a booth which we got. The food was good. I got served water in a mason glass while at the next table I noticed they got... More

ESG is a great bar/restaurant with consistently good food and friendly, experienced staff. The menu just changed and they added a mango and avocado salad. Had that last night. It was fabulous. Big salad, could be split by 2 people. The lamb kabobs are always a good app (or meal), burgers are big and tasty, chicken Marsala is delish and... More

This restaurant has a bit of a bar type atmosphere, but families with children are very comfortable there, as well. The menu offers a good variety of all types of food.

Went to this restaurant after a business meeting and I was surprised by everything. For being such a small restaurant, everything about it was fabulous. I had the Steak Tips and the glaze on them was absolutely out of this world. My only complaint was that the tips were a little under-cooked, but not enough to send them back. It's... More

We were given a groupon for the Essex Street Grille as a Christmas gift. We decided to use it during the week, as it gets crowded here on the weekends. The groupon stated to call for reservations and mention the groupon, which I did. When we arrived (Tuesday night) we were asked to sit wherever we wanted :-) The groupon... More

We had dinner with friends, all four of us had fabulous meals. The Eggplant Rollatini was perfectly cooked and delicious. My husband and one other person had the stuffed veal special, which they both loved and our other friend had pork osso bucco. All amazing. Their spinach artichoke dip has a little different twist on it that I can't quite... More

We purchased a groupon for the Essex Street Grille. It is a nice, quaint place near the downtown area. We ordered the pot stickers that were serve with seaweed salad and it was great. This was followed by the chicken masala and seafood pie. Both were excellent. We will definitely return. Thanks for the great service Lisa.
