“Not sure what people see in this place”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

I have lived in the area for many years, and have tried Esty Street several times and just don't see why it is so popular. We went with another couple last Saturday to celebrate two birthdays. Once we put in our first drink order, nothing happened, and after 20 minutes when we complained they finally got us our drinks. The waiter then did not bring the menu's forever, and again we had to ask. Finally we had the menus and the waiter never came back to see if we had questions. By then, I had had enough and got up to complain to a person at the front who looked like the manager. He said he was the owner,not the manager and called over the manager into the conversation. I told them that the service was non existent, we were celebrating two birthdays, etc.. and the manager said he would take care of it. When I got back to the table, the waiter came over in an angry mood with an attitude and simply said, "what can I get you"..he said nothing about any questions, etc. The food for the most part was "okay", however my oysters were horrible, Whomever shucked them didn't know that they were doing because they were dried out.. obviously they lost all the liquor when they were shucked. The final straw in why I am writing this review is that... unbelievably, neither the manager, nor the owner came over to our table to ask us how things were! The bill was over $500 and when we left, neither of them were there any longer.

Esty Street is consistently amazing! The ambience is really beautiful, the food is outstanding, and the service is attentive but not intrusive. Excellent dining experience!

“Pretentious”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Lovely place, great service, unfortunately the food was real let down... Butter and cream just cannot fix insipid food. The menu is very "busy" but I don't believe there is skill enough in the kitchen to carry the ideas through.

“An Occasion Place But Well Worth It”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

I went for dinner with 3 others. We were seated in the "library" section of the building. It was a wonderful atmosphere. We started with 2 "special" appetizers followed by our main courses. The surf and turf was incredible for $60. it was worth it without a doubt. The staff was very friendly and service was exceptional. I would highly recommend the French Toast dessert, very tasty! The bill was quit expensive but worth it for a special occasion.
