We enjoyed our dinner at Essensia very much. The atmosphere is very tranquil and relaxed. The service was very attentive, professional and welcoming. We were amazed by the Paiche (fish from the Amazon).

I went to this during Miami Spice and loved it. Food was fresh and setting was beautiful. I went again with friends for my birthday and was so disappointed. Nothing was great, the service was OK, the drinks were awful, the food was average at best. The soup tasted canned, the meat was overly sweet, the vegetables were just OK. Would not recommend and definitely over priced. Furthermore, my sister called to have a bottle of champagne delivered to our table and it never came.

We stayed at the hotel and we were pleasantly surprised with how delicious the food was at Essencia. We ate there for breakfast lunch and dinner and each meal was excellent. The ambience is nice, there is option to eat inside or outside. The decor is very nice as well.

The steak w/blueberry sauce from the Miami Spice menu was excellent. The blueberry sauce was unusual and it really added a nice taste to the steak.

We went all out! We had the steak for two. It was pricey, but awesome! It must have been more steak than advertised because we did not finish it. It's The specialty drinks before dinner were refreshing and creative! It's been a long time since I've had a cocktail that surprised me with the taste. We had the caprese and octopus to start. We also took advantage of the wine special. I can't remember the name of the red we had, but it was truly a amazing especially for the really reasonable price. Service was amazing and you can tell everyone likes their jobs. Overall outstanding!
