“overated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The fanfare by some reviews led me to believe this was top of the pops as far as restaurants go in Melb. We didn't feel it was anywhere near as good as Grossi Florentino's, Momo's (now closed), Vue du Monde, or several other good restaurants we frequent from time to time when visiting Melb.
Fish was overcooked and the stewy vegetables that came with it remained on my plate.
The highlight for us was the chocolate fondue desert.

“Fine dining in the west”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Iv been to Esca Grill Restaurant on many occasions, i always prefer to take my over seas and interstate visitors here as well as i know for certain they wont be disappointed.
Firstly its the service and how you get ushered to your table and treated like your a priority, then its the ambiance , and the comfortable seating, then comes the menu , simple classy and all you need..the food is sensational, fresh and superb every single time..from the entree to the mains then comes the amazing deserts and great coffee .
if you are a seafood lover go to Esca Grill Restaurant..the oysters taste hand picked from ocean, the barramundi always cooked to perfection , not once but every single time.. if you love a fine steak go to Esca Grill Restaurant.. you wont be disapointed ..and if you understand the concept of fine dining then you will know you need to pay a little extra for the finest..

The food, the service and the atmosphere were awesome. Baby chicken tasted very good. Friendly and experienced service. I do recommend this restaurant even if you are really fan of sea food.

“Number1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We were in search of a restaurant that stood out from the usual high priced & over rated ones. Esca Grill sure was a surprise. Everything from the friendly hello as you walk in the door to the goodbye as you walk out was amazing. The service outstanding. We enjoyed freshly shucked oysters and pork belly for entree and steaks, duck & a mix of sides as our mains, they sure were amazing. I fully recommend this restaurant to everyone, they know there stuff...
