excellent service and food – Love their hummos and their fish dishes, great service !
Decent food - great desserts – The service is excellent, although the wait is always much too long even if you have a reservation. I rarely return if this happens 2x in a row!
The food generally is quite good, desserts are exceptional.
Birthday let down.......... – So, I went to Cafe Esin for my Birthday with a large group of friends. We dropped over $600. The staff was extremely unfriendly. We brought in our own cake and we were made to feel like they were teasing us as if we did something wrong. We had asked if we could and were told yes. The whole experience was very uncomfortable. It was a let down for my Birthday. I regreted going there. On top of which the food.......not so great. Just so-so. I will not go back there again and will not recommend it to anyone.
High prices, low rate food – I thought that I was walking into a high class restaurant but the service and the food did not reflect the environment. I ordered my steak med. And it came out alive no matter how many times they tried to get my meal right the end result was the same horse meat and cattle feed. The service was very poor for the amount of money that I paid for this meal. In the long run I would not go to Cafe Esin again.
Best fish Ever – The food was brilliant, tasty, elegant, and sophisticated. My halibut was absolutely the best executed and flavored dish I have ever had. The service was excellent, knowledgeable, and professional. The waiter knew the menu in and out. The wine list was an unbelievable value with some incredible wines that were barely priced above retail. No wonder they have so many accolades.
Is this San Ramon? – I am visiting from LA and here on business. The Marriott front desk recommended Cafe Esin and I was skeptical. When I walked throught the door I thought I had been taken to another place. The food was absolutely outstanding. I had the Salmon with fresh chanterelles and tasso ham. Salmon was cooked superbly and the sauce was unbelievably good. Dessert was everything promised and more. No wonder the place is so busy. Excellent service & Great wine list also. Could not believe that I was still in San Ramon. Bravo
Nice atmosphere and good value in San Ramon – My family and I visited Cafe Esin for dinner last night, and were quite pleasantly surprised with this hidden joy in San Ramon. The food was excellent for all of us. We were greeted and seated promptly, service was quick and very professional (but certainly not stuffy), and the food presentation was wonderful. This little gem of a restaurant is tucked back off the main parking area of a 'strip mall' type of situation. So, it was not easily seen from the street. But, I'm glad we found it.
What a find! – My friends and I eat out each month at different restaurants in San Francisco. We were very impressed with the great food & great service. We considered ourselves lucky to find such a fine restaurant especialy in San Ramon!!!!
Not what was expected – To begin the service was very poor. The food was far from par and the dessert did not pleaseme. From the review I was expecting much better than I recieved, but
I was more disappointed than satisfied. I'd rather travel than waste my time and money!!!!
Excellent – My girlfriend and I went to Cafe Esin and had dinner. The food was great. The service was great. Dessert was incredible. I can't believe a restaurant like this in San Ramon. Truly a find.
