We always have a great meal when we dine at Chesca's. The chef is very accommodating with dietary restrictions, which is always a plus since my husband can't eat gluten or dairy. Great food and service!

Awesome experience, phenomenal service! Shout out to Ruth. Appetizers were very delicious and sized nicely. The tuna poke was average, needed some other flavor to accent the sesame oil. Lobster wraps were average, expected more of a mango accent. Asian pear salad was awesome. By...More
