    The dish that I ordered, Shrimp and Grits was extremely salty! The three dips only came with one baguette and when that was gone, the waitress did not ask if we wanted more.

    Essex has an interesting menu, not focused on a particular cuisine. Their plates are suitable for sharing, so we got a number of different dishes to share. Really enjoyed it.

    Very expensive, booths were extremely uncomfortable, they sank low making it nearly impossible to get out. Drinks small and more expensive that higher rated restaurants in the area. Won’t return….the server was pleasant; however, inattentive. Very disappointed.

    The food quality was superb, the service was quite good, with courteous and frequent visits to our table by the wait staff. The wine servings were what we like to call a "dignified pour"! Our only disappointment was the serving sizes for both the calamari, as well as the cheesecake dessert (which our waitress kindly doubled at no additional cost)...

    Essex only offers dinner menu during weekend lunch hours. Which is fine, but the dinner menu is very limited and does not offer any form of sandwich or other quick bite. Those options that were offered border on price gouging (30 dollars for a salad with chicken). Flatbread I ordered was akin to a frozen pizza. Quinoa salad was laden with undercooked quinoa and overcooked sweet potatoes. No time to send items back as we had an engagement to get too afterwards. A once solid uptown option has truly gone downhill in terms of both menu variety, price, and quality of food. At their current prices, make a better decision and go to one of the several quality steakhouses within a few blocks.

    The food was fine but I am giving Essex 1 Star because they change a few of $25/ person if you cancel or no-show your reservation within a certain time frame. Typically, that is not a problem but on this particular occasion I made my reservation for 5 m and even had an extra person join us. I checked in but somehow we were listed as a no show. OpenTable contacted me and I provided detailed information about our time there (server, table number and even one of the check numbers). OpenTable said it was resolved but I was still charged $25 per person. Essex should not have a policy like this if they cannot ensure patrons who actually show up are not charged. Now, I am taking more time to get this resolved…again. I will not be making another reservation here. Too much hassle.

    We're trying to dine outside for the time being. Their outside dining is right by the sidewalk so if there is a bongo player (as there was that day), the noise or music, depending on your point of view, can be loud. But for us, with the breeze, excellent service, great drinks and a charcuterie that was both delicious and lovely, we were well pleased. It's a short walk from the Belk theater which is another plus.

    This restaurant has lost their liqour license. Prob would have changed our plans had we known ahead of time. Was also told they didn’t have any domestic beer. I noticed 3 box’s of mic ultra sitting at the bar. I think it would be a good place to go if they get the Liqour license back.

    Overall the taste of the food was pretty good and our server was very nice but overly apologetic which makes me believe he gets constant complaining from customers. The portion for the octopus was way too small for the price. I have gotten larger portions for less at much fancier places. The butter chicken was good and the portion was enough. It’s also misleading that they look like they have liquor at the bar but realized why the bar was empty when the waiter said it was beer and wine only. I think they are missing a big opportunity not having liquor especially being uptown. This place has potential and I hope they are listening to their customers and reading reviews so they can improve. Until then I most likely won’t be going back.

    Great location in downtown Charlotte. Right near the Blumenthal. Had trouble ordering the drinks we wanted though. Apparently, they lost their liquor license, from what the waitress said and were filing paperwork to get it back. They did have wine and beer. They were, however, out of our first and second choice of beer that was on the menu. Food was very good and came out faster that the drinks. I think they're having a real bar problem. Overall, fairly good experience.

    Thanks to our reservation, we were seated quickly. Seats in the booths are incredibly low - I almost felt the need to sit on my knees. Service was slow and a bit disorganized but friendly. Salads were tasty with the exception of an avocado that was past it's prime. Pizza was greasy and cold. Beer was warm.

    Essex serves small portions and you do not get a side with the entree. You need to make sure to order something or you will be hungry. The food tasted good but overall I have had better tasting and larger portions for less money.

    We checked the website for the menu because my mom has a lot of food restrictions. After finding something on the lunch menu, we made reservations and went to the restaurant. When we arrived at the table, we were told that only the dinner menu was being served since it was Saturday. It wasn’t listed anywhere inside or online that they didn’t serve lunch on Saturdays. We informed the server of moms restrictions and asked if the protein could be substituted for a different one (that was also on the lunch menu), the server said no without hesitation or even offering to check. We eventually found something else she could eat if a number of ingredients were omitted. When our food arrived, my $21 shrimp tacos consisted of three tacos each containing a teaspoon of guac (which was left off of one entirely), a large shrimp, and some garnish. All three of us are notorious for boxing up our leftovers but none of us had any food left and were all still hungry. The food tasted good and the restaurant was nice but you don’t get enough food for what you pay for, they aren’t flexible, and heaven forbid you’re on a schedule because our waitress stood and talked to the table behind us about absolutely nothing for a solid five minutes while we were waiting to order our food.

    I made a lunch reservation but had to change it due to scheduling conflicts. I was unable to modify the reservation online as I was directed to contact the restaurant directly. I tried several times but was not able to get through until a half hour prior to my reservation time. I did make reservations for dinner. The hostess that seated us was extremely rude and unpleasant. Our server was friendly and attentive and our food was ok. My family and I were not too impressed and do not think that we will return.

    Menu look good so we walked here from the hotel. The hostess was not friendly. The waitress seemed like she was distracted whenever she came by the table - like she had somewhere else she wanted to be. The food was ok, but honestly overpriced for what it was. Not terrible but probably won’t be back here anytime soon.

    Hostess was cold as ice and acted put out that we asked for a booth. Waiter was barely understandable as the noise level was crazy. We tried to order a cocktail to be told their liquor license has "lapsed.". We have loved Essex but not sure we'll go back. We ended up leaving. Gave 3 stars on food but inly because we had to put down something.

    This was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. First, we are seated & ask for the cocktail menu. Answer: WE DONT HAVE A LIQUOR LICENSE. Then: we would like a bottle of Kim Crawford Sav Blanc. Answer (after checking with bartender) WE ARE OUT. So we order a different Sav Blanc. It arrives warm. Answer: it was just delivered so it wasn’t chilled. We ask for ice. Waitress looks at us like we are speaking a foreign language. Comes back with a small glass of ice for our warm water & warm wine. We order the flatbread pizza with sausage & bacon. Food arrived: SHORT RIB PIZZA. Server disappeared. After a LONG wait, we eat some of the pizza & busboy comes to take dishes from appetizer & grazes my friend’s plate with a dirty fork from another table & leaves. Another long wait & waitress comes by & we ask her about the flatbread. Reason we got the wrong one - she put in the order for the wrong one. So sad to see what was a great restaurant on such a sharp decline.

    We wanted to like and were excited to go. They don't have a liquor license right now, so that was disappointing. They still serve beer and wine. Menu options are great, but the food was just "okay". Portions are small (one friend asked if she accidently had ordered an appetizer instead of a meal, she hadn't!) I ordered the chicken skewers, the flavor was good but not all of my chicken was cooked thoroughly and again, small portion.

    We went there for shwarma but not offered on Sundays. Every else we ordered, we did not like any of them. The worst part is the waitress never showed up after delivering food. We asked for a check three times and were tired of waiting and paid with the reception and left. Whatever we ordered to try it out, variety fo 5 dishes we ordered only the grouper was ok and nothing was good.

    Not the best visit I’ve had…trio dip….guacamole doesn’t really go with a Mediterranean vibe. Fried cauliflower was really heavy in sauce and not the prettiest of presentations and the chicken skewers were just ok. I’d have to be uptown to ever go here again, I wouldn’t travel back just for this restaurant. I did have a better experience a few years ago for lunch pre-pandemic.
