We had dinner here just recently as we do every year when we come to the vineyard. If you can, try to get a table on the enclosed porch as it is a bit more private/intimate and not as loud as the main dining room. This place is pricey (because it is Edgartown) and there is often a wait as... More

My family and I had a great meal here. Our server, Joni, made great suggestions for food and wine. The seafood paella is delicious and tastes very fresh. They were also very accommodating as one of my kids is a picky eater. Chesca's has a fun, lively atmosphere, and you can tell everyone there is having a great time. This... More

We enjoyed a special dinner. We had a bit of a wait for our table so we enjoyed a drink on the porch overlooking town which was very enjoyable. Our waitress was fabulous and did a great job taking care of us. We enjoyed Seafood Paella, Short Ribs, Pasta Bolognese, and Salmon. Everyone enjoyed their dinners which were presently so... More

Always a must for me when visiting Edartown. I loved my dinner & everyone in our party enjoyed their food, as well. Chesca's has a great "Happing atmosphere!" Reservations are needed. Please try it!

Well located restaurant in a very charming building. Food in general was good. However we were deceived by the service. 1- they didn't returned our reservation call. 2- for an "italian" restaurant, there was not cappucino or italian desert... 3- we had a surprize to have extra fees for a split plate (our 2 kids each have ordered a large...

Upscale Italian with wonderful flavor and presentation. Atmosphere is clean and crisp without being stuffy - which is nice for island setting. Favorites: Veal Pappardelle and Ravioli marinara.

We have been coming to marthas vineyard for 30 years and always have appreciated the quality of the food. Just left chescas very disappointed. After searching online menus we decided to try chescas . They offered a small bite menu so we figured we could do apps,salad and small entrees to get full feel of cuisine. After expensive wine in... More

Went there on Thursday last week for dinner and it was quite a surprise. The food was tasty and I really enjoyed the friendly service. Our server Eddie (if I'm not wrong) was attentive and professional and he suggested us the Gorgonzola dip which was just AMAZiNG. Will be back!

We really enjoy the food here and the service is good. We have tried it twice now and enjoyed it both times. My biggest complaint was that we were seated on the porch and it was a little drafty out there.

I had the Bento Box: literally a box with six or seven divisions, each one with a different food. In mine, there were grilled shrimps, mashed potatoes (very good), cooked vegetables, salad and an amazing clam chowder. It was a perfect meal, full of vitamins and delicious flavors. I would most definitely recommend it, either for lunch our dinner.
