We ate here several times. The food was always very good, the ambiance and noise level pleasant and the waitstaff mostly very kind and helpful.

“Classic bistro fare in a stylish setting”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A stylish but laid-back Boston "standard," serving a menu of classics, including a fantastic steak frites, succulent selections from the raw bar, and a fine chocolate custard. Seems to be an equally good choice for a night out with work colleagues, friends, or family.

“Great Service and Good Food”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

I booked ES for Valentines Day, it’s somewhere my husband and I have been meaning to try. The staff was all super friendly, from the valet to the hostess to our waitress. I had a duck special, and my husband had the pork, everything was delicious! I look forward to going back to try their brunch.
