I enjoyed my lunch at Esin very much. I got to know the restaurant when it was at a different location and I find it's retained it's high standard at the new one. I wondered if it would, since it expanded, but I was delightfully surprised.

Crowded even for a Sunday night. They make 2 prime rib roasts so if you like an end piece, get there early.

Esin is a paradise in a cold hostile world. It always has a calming influence on me. And everything is so tasty. Cocktails are top drawer, and the Clam appetizer is something I could eat every day. Also, my wife says it is very romantic. (But what do I know?)

I took my mom here for her birthday last month to have a nice dinner and dessert. It's a great restaurant for a romantic dinner or special occasion. They have a great selection of wines and cocktails, plus delicious dessert options as well.

On a rainy day 3 business partners met to lunch, collaborate and have fun. The warm atmosphere and friendly waiter added to our experience prompting us to open some champagne. It flowed as did our creativity and the amazing food fueled our brainstorming. Turns out one of the ladies had even been there for dinner the night before but loves... More

I'm astounded that, while having lived in the East Bay for over forty years, we never managed to dine at Esin...clearly, we've been missing out! We met friends at Esin for lunch and I'd requested a quiet table, as we'd not seen one another for some time and had a lot of catching up to do! The hubs and I... More

For lunch, dinner the best is Esin. This time was lunch with out of town family after the holidays. Esin was so refreshing! A shrimp pasta to die for and a Big fat burger with fries for one couple in our group. Then Mary's chicken sandwiches, tender and flavorful served with housemade potato chips. A favorite, always served a bit... More

This restaurant was packed for a Tuesday night. That was a good sign. We had booked a table, but it wasn't ready when we arrived. So we had to wait 10 min, however we were given a free glass of white wine to compensate for the delay. The menu was wide, unusual and varied. It had 2 vegetarian starters and... More

This is absolutely love this place. We frequent Esin every time we're in N California, and every time it is absolutely delicious. The entrees are amazing. I lean on the seafood side and have yet to have a fish that I did not like. The grilled octopus is amazing. The desserts are the best in the business. New ones on... More

Esin was extremely enjoyable. The food is excellent with homemade desserts! Our server, Jessie was amazing! He went above and beyond! He offered a new Mom a glass of champagne to celebrate the new little one! He brought a complementary dessert with a candle! Esin is a must try!

Description
Esin has been a neighborhood jewel since opening in 1998. The name Esin is not only the name of one of the owners but also means “inspiration”. The food is the passion of Chef & Owners Curtis and Esin deCarion. They strive to create cuisine that is fresh, seasonal, and prepared with great care. The fare is American with bits of Mediterranean influences. The wine list has been recognized by Wine Spectator & Wine Enthusiast magazines.
Esin Restaurant & Bar relocated in July of 2008 to the Newest upscale lifestyle center The Rose Garden in Danville. The freshly designed dining room offers warm and comforting tones.
Be sure to save room for one of Esin’s fresh made desserts that have become so well known.
