The restaurant has a back porch overlooking the garden and pool with a very nice Key West feel to it. For a lunch or brunch, the terrace is the place to be. Laid back, no-hurries environment with a lush tropical feeling. - OpenTable Reviewer October 2016
I went to Essensia Restaurant for my birthday...It was amazing! The food and service were exemplary. Would visit again...and again! - OpenTable Reviewer September 2016
The service was outstanding! The food was very fresh and used in interesting combinations- I would suggest the Caprese salad with watermelon. The homemade sorbets were amazing! - OpenTable Reviewer October 2016
