We enjoyed our experience at Essence. The food was delicious and arrived very promptly, which was great as we had tickets to a show. The wine was good and we liked that there were two sized glasses to choose from. We had prime seats by the window and it was a lovely evening watching the nightlife go by!

Very nice food but no allergens listed on menu. Was told steak dish could be done gluten free - parts of dish removed with no replacement (sweet potato soufflé).
