As we were driving into Las Vegas to celebrate a milestone 50th birthday, we wanted to spend it dining at Esther's! We looked at availability online and saw they taking reservations up until 11 PM. We booked a table for 2 at 10 PM, an...hour before their last seating, and continued our drive into town. Hours later as we were crossing the border into Nevada, my phone rang. It was the staff at Esther's asking us if we could come in earlier so they could close up early and go home early. They explained they were just curious, but would remain open and serve us at our booked time if we couldn't come earlier. I explained that we were still on our way into town. We had just crossed the border into the state and hadn't even checked into our hotel. We'd have to let them know. As we checked in and got ready, we were on track to be about 30 minutes early. I was about to call them and let them know when they called me back first...this time pushier. It because immediately...uncomfortable. I don't understand. Their last seating was at 11 PM, but it was for some reason so important that we NOT show up at our booked time for a lonely, isolated, small-scale, 2-person, 50th birthday dinner that we chose to spend at their establishment. I heard crowd noises in the background of the phone call. I asked if we would be the only ones there. She said that they were busy at the moment, and that there were other parties booked at 9:30 PM (which would be the time we would have shown up at if we would be 30 minutes early). So I have no earthly idea why it was so damn important to single *us* out to make us so uncomfortable for wanting to dine at Esther's at the time they made available an HOUR before their last seating! With all eyes figuratively on us, for some reason, we decided not to go because the staff wanted to go home. Instead, having to cancel our plans so late in the evening, we had to have a casino food court sandwich and packet of crackers in our hotel room. It was either that or fast food. Happy 50th Birthday! Thanks Esther's!More

This was quite a a surprise. Amazing pastas, breads with different kinds of butters. And of course fantastic selection of wines by the glass and bottle. Service is amazing as well. So well deserved 5 stars! Amazing experience.

Esthers Kitchen has been on my list of restaurants to try in Vegas, for a while now. I am pissed at myself for not eating here sooner. The food is amazing and the service was spot on. So many things we wanted to try, that...we are going back tomorrow. This place is great for foodies...... EnjoyMore

Had basil ricotta bread, warren pear salad, spaghetti with meatballs, & butterscotch budino. Just had one of each and my wife and I split these with an added side order of meatballs since entree only included 2 meatballs, though the meatballs are huge so the...2 would've been enough. Above was plenty for two people, which kept bill reasonable, $100 including 22% tip, 2-glasses of wine, and 2 beers. Everything was terrific and service was top notch. Would definitely go back.More

Chose this place based on the abundance of positive reviews. While we went for brunch the dinner menu looks delicious as well. We started with a couple of the toast items which had incredible mix of tastes and flavors. Then shared breakfast pizza and meatball...hoagie which were delicious. I could have probably eaten everything on that menu... when back in Vegas I’ll certainly try to make my way back there.... and the service was super friendly. We sat inside and tables were spaced out to meet the guidelines.More

Wow WOW, the food at this place is amazing! Probably the best meal in my entire stay in Vegas, get away from the over priced Vegas hotel restaurants that could never even compare to this Italian food!

As out-of-towners we were thrilled to find Esther's, which seems more of a local's in-the-know hangout. Food, mainly consisting of Italian-inspired small dishes was great. A very good, somewhat eclectic, and mainly European-inspired wine list, with many good selections by the glass. We had a...very enjoyable meal, and prices were very reasonable.More

Esther’s is one of my two favorite off Strip Italian restaurants in all of Las Vegas! Had lunch and dinner there 8-10 times in the past year. Funky room and neighborhood. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Innovative menu and beyond delicious food! And less expensive than on...Strip alternatives.More

Homemade pasta dishes were fantastic, sourdough bread appetizer was perfect and the beer was cold. Service was great—attentive and fast. We arrived early for our reservation and they seated us right away. Highly recommend.
