Description: Esin has been a neighborhood jewel since opening in 1998. The name Esin is not only the name of one of the owners but also means “inspiration”. The food is the passion of Chef & Owners Curtis and Esin deCarion. They strive to create cuisine that is fresh, seasonal, and prepared with great care. The fare is American with bits of Mediterranean influences. The wine list has been recognized by Wine Spectator & Wine Enthusiast magazines. Esin Restaurant & Bar relocated in July of 2008 to the Newest upscale lifestyle center The Rose Garden in Danville. The freshly designed dining room offers warm and comforting tones. Be sure to save room for one of Esin’s fresh made desserts that have become so well known.

I first went to Cafe Esin when it opened in San Ramon. The owners are a wonderful couple and the food has always remained excellent. Every component of the restaurant is well thought out and I would be hard pressed to find any fault. In my perfect world, I would eat here once a week and smile a lot.

Dinner here was an enjoyable experience. The waitstaff was attentive and knowledgeable (although our server's habit of using "we" instead of "you"--as in "have we finished?" was cloying and ultimately annoying). The mahi mahi was fresh and flavorful, but we asked for it cooked through, and the middle section of both portions we're translucent. The cider brined pork loin was a big hit, as was the pot roast. Desserts were scrumptious: lemon meringue with an unusual gingersnap crust, and a superb apple-cranberry crumble. The atmosphere was conducive to conversation, but still lively.
