My family and I visited Esca Grill for a birthday dinner celebration about a month ago and had one of the most sensational dining experiences and have now been coming back on a regular basis because it’s just that good.

The food is absolutely amazing and of a very high standard that makes it quiet hard to compete with. The staff are also equally as amazing and very attentive and friendly which just adds so beautifully to the restaurant’s overall atmosphere. The service is prompt and you are never left waiting and nothing is forgotten.

This restaurant is truly a hidden gem and everything from the decor to the staff to the food is fabulously coordinated creating a lovely atmosphere and dining experience which flows so effortlessly.

We dine out a lot, and have high expectations when it comes to this, however Esca Grill impressed us all in every aspect. If you enjoy seafood and steak and mouthwatering desserts with a bit of a twist Esca Grill is definitely worth a visit and will no doubt have you coming back too!

Lovely restaurant with open kitchen and friendly staff. We were seated in a mezzanine area which was a little hot and people were quite close to gether - we asked to move to lower restaurant floor and even though there were tables available (we were 2 people and tables were for 4) we were not allowed to move which disappointed. Our waiter was lovely, helpful and responsive and in my opinion just had too many tables at the one time as we had to wait several times for service or to make a request when other waiters seemed to be standing around more. That being said the food really was exquisite and the seafood very obviously uber-fresh and the best i have eaten! we had oysters then an incredible homemade spagettini and seafood pasta and fish - truly amazing! then we moved to dessert and shared - OMG! next level desserts just beautiful. Overall, i will definitely go back and when i book i will request a table on the floor area. Well done to the chef's and kitchen crew at EscaGrill!

Service started on a high level, but seemed like there was to many orders for the staff, so in the end a few of our orders was forgotten.

For mains do remember to order sides, since the menu described salad/vegetables was only garnish.
Quality of the food is way above medium. So overall a fine experience.
