Great food,just delicious and unique. Terrific waiter who was so attentive, delivered our food at just the right leisurely pace. Paired our meal with a perfect wine. Chef came out to welcome and greet us. Quiet and cozy. And the price!!! Can’t say enough about a wonderful “date night”.

Had the 7 course tasting menu for 2. Was our anniversary. Took 2 hours but waiter was very informative (although a little slow and forgetful at times). Portions were small (expected) but great textures.

Simply amazing tasting menu meal over the weekend. Happened to be in the Essex CT area this past weekend and made a reservation based on a recommendation. Chef and his team hit it out of the park. Each course was superb and the wine pairings just added to the experience. Don't think I have had a better meal anywhere. Can't wait to go back.

We went there for our anniversary. We had a great table near the fireplace and the food was fabulous. Added plus of having part of our meal cost donated to a veterans organization. Ended the night with a visit to the Coco Club, very cool venue. Nice to go to dinner and be a able to hear each other😊

The Essex is an experience! Outstanding creations by the super-talented Chef Colt who perused the dining room throughout dinner to check-in with his patrons. The newly opened CocoClub upstairs provides a wonderful, casual-chic space to enjoy before or after dinner cocktails (be sure to check out their seasonal cocktails creations!). And, there is yet a third option to mix in with Chef Colt's Los Charros Mexican right next door through the shared hallway. Three concepts make this a destination for a fabulous evening of the highest quality food and drink. Enjoy this wonderful gem in Essex, CT!!

Very good food, nicely presented. Good atmosphere as well. The service was pleasant but not polished. We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing and more often than not a course was set down without the wine and it took some time for waitress to bring the accompanying wine - they should be served together. Drinks were good though the variety of spirits could be expanded - no citron vodka? No Cointreau? Then how does one follow Dale DeGroff's cosmopolitan recipe? picky yes, but that's the difference between a 4 and 5 star rating. Overall, however, it was a very positive experience and we look forward to returning.

The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly. We came for date night after we saw a posting from them on FB and it looked too good to pass up.
This was our second time at the restaurant and we will definitely come back again.

It was the perfect atmosphere for a romantic evening. The food was incredible. I had the steak, my husband the cod and both were amazing. We had the ravioli app and the ramen app and those were outstanding. Nothing else can compare. The birthday cake dessert was one of the best cakes I’ve had

The chef, Colt, is creative and incredibly talented. We are always delighted to try new things and never tire of the surprise his interpretations bring. On this trip we were reminded that the bread basket is in itself a treat and the deserts are as well thought out as the rest of rye menu! Truly a sophisticated and superb experience.

Hello Arthur! Thank you or taking the time to leave a review on your dining experience! And we really appreciate the 5 stars on food, and service! We were just curious as to how we can get the overall experience up from 4 stars to 5 stars? Anything short of 5 is absolutely a failure for us and we would love to address any shortcomings, thank you!

Food was amazing; wait staff was great until other groups came and the. He acted like we were a bother. Ended up leaving more of a tip only because we didn’t want to wait another half hour to get our change. This was the 2nd time that happened to us within a month ; we won’t be going back.

We are very sorry to hear that you had less than a perfect dining experience. Currently we are in the process of training new staff at The Essex and other staff members have been taking on more responsibility in the the interim. This may have caused the delay in response time at your table. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the menu and would be saddened to hear you will not revisit the restaurant because of an issue with service. We would love to invite you back in for a 5 star experience.

Didn’t live up to the hype. Food was tasty, but only luke warm when it arrived. My husband’s pasta portion was very small. Overpriced for what you got. The dessert we ordered was given to the table next to us. However, they deducted the price for the dessert.

As the Manager of The Essex I was very disheartened to read your review. I am so sorry that we came up short, we are training a new server currently, and that was our mistake not yours to burden. I am curious as to what you ate and why you felt underwhelmed... anything short of a 5 star experience is a failure on our end... We would learn from our shortcomings in your dining experience. A conversation and contact would be much appreciated so we can rectify this review?

we appreciate you kind words, and we are sorry to read about the smaller portions... we simply do not like to waste food! we source the absolute best of everything we prepare and serve, including a fully sustainable seafood and meat program, and we are happy to bulk up a portion for those with a larger appetite!

The Essex is a first rate restaurant serving an outstanding menu. Some of the dishes are very sophisticated but even simple items like lobster rolls and patty melts are beyond compare. The staff goes out of their way to provide attentive service and the delightful chef makes the rounds to assure a pleasant experience. Lots of parking, music not too loud, easy to find.

Delightful innovative food. Excellent cocktails and again some are quite inventive. The Asian themed dinners on now are excellent. Portions are not large but very sufficient, more like a NYC or European restaurant.
