We have been to L'Esprit numerous times and we always leave happy. I had the tuna and my husband had the mahi mahi. Both dishes were well prepared, beautifully presented, and tasty. The highlight of the meal was the raspberry napoleon. I wanted to lick...More

After a week of fabulous dinners the bar was set high, but this meal was the best by far! Magical ambience of twinkle lights, singing tree frogs, a garden of trees, and amazing food! The shrimp and scallops were amazing, as was the grilled octopus...More

Beautiful presentation and gastronomically thoughtful concepts but lacking in a comfort of taste and union of ingredients. Just think of a great artist Jackson Pollack in edible form. Would go back for another try though as perhaps things were a little amiss this time.
