Great menu options, great food! Hidden gem. Small, so arrive a bit early. Dark but cozy, casual bar vibe.

I forget if I review these guys once before here, but we're back again, and it is so good. Very friendly staff, delicious martinis, and wonderfully carefully prepared food. We've made this place our Friday night tradition!

We ate here last week and the food was tremendous. There were 4 of us with all different entrees. We all enjoyed ours. I had the scallops with citrus risotto, delicious. Nice sweet scallops and a tangy risotto. My wife had the butternut squash ravioli, also delicious. We will definitely return.

We frequent this place. There is on-street parking and a public lot a block away. The atmosphere is friendly, and they have a consistent following. The wait staff is friendly and attentive--particularly on the weekend. We like the dinner menu (pasta, etc), but one of our favorite dishes is the Lamb Shawarma. The pita bread is warm and fresh, the... More

We've been here multiple times and we've never been disappointed. Grab a groupon coupon if available. Split an appetizer, two entrees and split a desert. Yum...Friendly service and wonderful food. Nice wine selections.

Thank you Janey for serving us really good food with a smile and without making us feel rushed on a busy Friday night. We both had beef, done exactly as ordered with hot, fresh, perfect sides. Drinks just right. Only downside to this place was the table layout which meant customers needed to go through the servers area to get... 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!
