Had lunch and breakfast here. Such a beautiful spot to sit and dine. Had a terrific lunch special that consisted of kale salad, fish tacos and sorbet for $23. Tacos were delish. Chose the buffet breakfast and there was fantastic variety and everything was tasty and fresh. This was $24 and worth it for the amount and choices.

I planned a bday dinner here for my wife and 18 friends- from the very first conversation a week prior through the end of the night, everyone was extremely helpful and accommodating (even as the final head count continued to change) Every employee we dealt with from planning, hosts and servers went above and beyond to make everything perfect- even separating all the checks without even being asked to do so! The best part is that the food was also excellent- everyone really enjoyed the night- if you want a nice dinner on the beach without attitude, highly recommend Essencia!

We staid at the Palms four days towards the end of August 2017. We also wnet at the Essentia restaurant inside the hotel and recommend without restrictions: great food with a LatAm accent, great service, good p/q ratio, great setting (covered terrace plantation house style). The whole family highly recommends.

We went to Essensia with another couple and both of us had a baby with us. Very accommodating and friendly staff. We made reservations via Open Table for Sunday brunch, which I recommend. We went for Miami Spice and were thoroughly pleased with all of the food – both on the Spice menu and off the regular menu. Given that we have one vegan in our group, it was very easy to find fresh, tasty options for her. Avocado toast was perfect and the smoothies they make are filling and tasty. The only downside was that the ceiling fan above our table outside was not working and with two babies and one pregnant lady in our party, that was unfortunate. Other than that, we had a great experience and highly recommend.
