We were desperate to find Shad Roe and after striking out at other restaurants found Esca. The Shad was initially undercooked, but the chef took it back and cooked it a few more minutes and it was perfect. We also had the salmon crudo which was lightly seared and excellent, as was the asparagus. A lovely spring meal. The restaurant... More
There isn't anything to fault about Esca. The staff is welcoming and friendly without being cloying, the location is a few blocks from the theaters, the rooms are comfortable, and the food is fantastic. Plus, it's pretty reasonably priced for NYC. There are interesting wine and mixed drink lists. The crudo tasted like they just caught it, they have sea... More
For seventeen years Dave Pasternack has been doing it right at Esca. For a top quality chef to be there that long is unusual. I like that the chef comes out into the dining room to meet diners. The wines, appetizers, entrees are all worth trying. Don't make it a top choice if you are not a fish person but... More
This is the 3rd time I have dined at Esca; sadly it was not as good as I remembered. We were there for a 5:30 reservation since we wanted to have plenty of time before the theatre, so were in no hurry. Even though we told the wait staff that we were in no hurry, I felt rushed. We were... More
Out with good friends to celebrate my birthday we went to Esca and what a great choice. This is an exquisite restaurant at the top of its game. Excellent service with a very good pescatorian menu - we were well looked after.
I chose Esca to celebrate my husband's birthday before we went to a matinee. In the reservation I made on OpenTable, I noted that it was my husband's birthday. I arrived at the restaurant first at 12:15pm and told the hostess the same. They led me to a small table for two next to a family with children, while the... More
Modern looking restaurant that focuses on a wide selection of fish dishes accompanied by great Italian pasta dishes and side dishes. The Branzino is purely magnificent. Service is very good. Vast majority of wines are excellent and Italian. Desert dishes are well proportioned and delicious. Restaurant is a little on the noisy side but bearable. I recommend this restaurant for... More
We went with high expectations, and were not disappointed. The food was excellent, whether raw, or perfectly cooked, you can't miss the quality of the fish or the preparation. We had oysters, calamari, mahi mahi, fried fish, even the house made pasta. They have an impressive wine list, but their house cocktails are a fresh Mediterranean take that plays up... More
