Food and service was amazing! The Corn & Pasilla Soup was out of this world, Gulf Ceviche was great too. Pan Seared Natural Chicken was delish, so was the Rock Shrimp & Calamari Pasta. Passion Fruit Key Lime Pie was the best key lime pie I've ever had! Service was great, no wait on a Sunday Night!

The food is totally excellent. The menu could be more elaborate but all what we tried was very good. We loved the service and the atmosphere. The "Cadre" is very European and high class.

Kale Ceasar salad, Snapper entree, and coconut chia pudding for dessert. Everything was so delicious! Staff was friendly and attentive. Setting is lovely. We ate on the porch and it could not have been more perfect.

My wife and I were staying at a nearby hotel whose restaurants were a bit out of our price range so we decided to try this restaurant at The Palms. The Palms has a wonderful Caribbean design, and the outside dining area has the same feel. Our waiter Gracia was very friendly and my wife and I enjoyed talking to... More

We went to the Essensia for the Miami Spice menu and added the wine pairing flight. Great value and very good food and wine. The highlight of our meal was our server, Gracia, and the service was impeccable! He was extremely polite, attentive, and answered all of our questions. Gracia went above and made sure our meal was perfect. I... More

My wife and I stayed at the Palms Hotel and Spa for our Anniversary weekend and decided to try Essensia's breakfast buffet. I'm a huge advocate of organic and natural foods so I wanted to measure this restaurants food against its advertisement. Indeed, we enjoyed a selection of fresh, healthy choices. We arent big fans of buffet's all access and... More
