Description: Esin has been a neighborhood jewel since opening in 1998. The name Esin is not only the name of one of the owners but also means “inspiration”. The food is the passion of Chef & Owners Curtis and Esin deCarion. They strive to create cuisine that is fresh, seasonal, and prepared with great care. The fare is American with bits of Mediterranean influences. The wine list has been recognized by Wine Spectator & Wine Enthusiast magazines. Esin Restaurant & Bar relocated in July of 2008 to the Newest upscale lifestyle center The Rose Garden in Danville. The freshly designed dining room offers warm and comforting tones. Be sure to save room for one of Esin’s fresh made desserts that have become so well known.

Spousal Team owned not a franchise, and very, very tasty, a local fave on both accounts. Unique and fusion and upscale cuisine. Try for yourself, Rose shopping center is fun, small and quaint. Gives Rodney a run for his money for his three places too. Good!

Okay, of all the places one could eat in Danville, this is the one we chose for the pre-wedding day luncheon with my son's fiancee. The menu is diverse, but the best part is their quality ingredients and attention to detail. I had the Cobb salad and was delighted by the red, ripe, juicy tomatoes and ripe avocado and the... More

We've been enjoying the fine dining at Cafe Esin for many, many years. Always have had a wonderful dinner. Consistent, quality, warm and inviting atmosphere. And if you can try one of their desserts. Highly recommend for a date night or with friends.

Friends recommended Esin, and we had a good lunch and a better dessert. Restaurant is nice and comfortable. Service was good. Fish dishes were good, and my chocolate dessert was the best. We are not regulars to Danville, but we would come back.

Having recently been in California on holiday with friends who live in Danville, they recommended we eat at Cafe Esin one evening, they had been several times before and thought I would enjoy the food. I came away thinking that if I lived in Danville I would be visiting this restaurant fairly often - excellent! Great service, we sat outside... More

One of our favorite restaurants in Danville. We used to go to Café Esin when it was in its old location in San Ramon. They have not lost anything since the move, and have maintained the comfortable ambiance, great service and stellar food!

Wonderful all around. Recommend to get reservations on the weekend unless you like to have dinner past 8pm. They had a scallop dish for the day that was perfect. The bread is made daily. The portions are just right, not too overwhelming or small that you are looking for more. Oh the desserts, oh made my day, need to order... More

The food at Esin is always excellent. I have never had a bad meal here, but have had some exceptional ones.. The service is also always just right. They are always around but not bothersome. They seem to since if you are in a hurry or want a long leisurely meal to catch up with friends. The atmosphere is nice... More
