Went Sat night Nov 19th, at 5:30. All the tables where reserved. Was offered a booth, but told we had to be out by 6:30. So I rated terrible for this reason. Heard alot good things about Essex Street Grille. We go out every Sat with another couple, and we go early so we can get a table. Was taken... More

This was our first time there. The food was very good and the service was very good. We though it was gong to be a more up scale restaurant than it was. Do not get me wrong the meal was very good. The parking was very limited on street only.

My husband and I went to Essex Street Grille last week for a quick dinner after a long day. It wasn't our first visit and as usual the food is delicious and consistent.The Seafood Risotto was excellent and the Pork Bellagio was fabulous! Large portions and great prompt service too! Definitely worth checking out!

We went there last night with a groupon. Often when using groupons or restaurant.com vouchers there are restrictions on what you can order. NOT HERE!! When we were seated the waiter brought crackers and a bean dip. Delicious. We ordered lamb kabobs for an appetizer. There were 2 skewers with pita bread, more than enough for 2 people. I had...

My husband and I went last night for our 1 year anniversary dinner, and we were so happy we did. We had reservations elsewhere but when a problem with the restaurant arose we were scrambling to find another place. My husband suggested ESG because he had seen it on Groupon and had looked at the menu. They definitely did not... More

The Essex Street Grille is a lil gem off the "slightly beaten path" in downtown Haverhill. We were looking for a new place close to where we live. It had been a long time since we drove down the road and crossed the border to Haverhill so we decided to give it a shot. After a few searches on google... More

The menu is varied with several good choices. I had the lamb and it was prepared very well. My friend has steak tips (always has them) as their favorite. Good choice is appertizers and deserts.

My husband & I ate dinner here last weekend. He had the steak tips and I had the pan seared haddock, both were excellent. We shared a salad that was very good and the fish tacos which were not very flavorful. The drinks & service were great. Overall we enjoyed this restaurant, and will likely go back again sometime.

Haverhill has some good restaurants and this is one of them. We had never been and decided to try it for something different. Service was good and we weren't rushed. We started off with the PEI mussels. the broth was delicious but the size of the mussels were the tiniest I've ever seen. For dinner we had the seafood pie... More

Joined friends at Essex Street Grill, actually was my second time. Our waitress (long, wavy hair) was excellent. Friendly and attentive. Sorry I didn't catch her name. We shared calamari and artichoke dip, both were flavorful. We all had different entrees, all excellent and hot. I had a pasta dish with shrimp it was excellent, but so large I had... More
