Delicious and fresh! Beautiful presentation and great menu selection. It was the highlight of our visit to Miami Beach area. We sat outside on the deck which was lovely.. - opentable Reviewer Januray 2018

I dined at Essensia everyday for 5 days while I was staying at The Palms. I was very pleased with the menu and the service. The portions are perfect, and I truly enjoyed that the meals often featured produce straight from the kitchen garden! - OpenTable Reviewer February 2018
