From garden to glass, we've looked to our backyard Chef's Organic Garden for our new Fall/Winter Essenstial Cocktails at Essensia Restaurant. Tip: incorporating freshly grown ingredients from a garden or local farmer’s market is an ideal way to lighten up any libation. ‪#‎gardentoglass‬

A few months ago Chef Rogers decided to bring his talents to South Beach. He also brought along what he calls his “New American Fusion Cuisine’’ to Essensia Restaurant and boy are we excited!

NEVER EAT in the Essensia Restaurant they have there. So over priced and food was not good at all. Service was poor. Ordered chicken but the server Gracia, must had placed the wrong order in for pork and later asked if I would change my order to the pork because it was the last one they had so they want to use it tonight, that they won't have anymore for tomorrow. So I agreed, and as soon as I agreed, they brought the food, so therefore they had already cooked it and didn't want to waste it so he had to come up with a lie for me to change my order. (Should have turned it away but didn't want to be a B****). The food had no taste. After my main dish, I was waiting for my dessert for 25 minutes, then finally asked one of the server to check why it was taking so long for my cheesecake. I know they don't have to cook the cake, so there is no reason for the long wait. No one came to check how things were. I had to ask for a refill on my water. This is supposedly a fine dining restaurant. Very poor service and definitely not fine dining food or services. Would not eat here ever again nor would ever recommend it to anyone unless you have money to throw away.

Great meal, good service, beautiful setting. Essentia shows that healthy can be full of flavor and presented without being pretentious. Well done!

Can't give it 1 star because the food was delicious. However, the service was pretty horrible. It took an hour and a half to get our food after we ordered. We did have a group of 11 but it definitely shouldn't take 2 hours + to get drinks, food, and our bill.

First off, I'm absolutely astounded by the negative reviews. I've been to this restaurant numerous times and this place is amazing. I'm tough to please, ask many picky questions, and a perfectionist. This restaurant is one of my favorites in all of Miami and with good reason. Last night, we had a group of 10+ guests to celebrate my birthday. I was a bit sad to see that the gnocchi was removed from the menu, but it basically gave me an opportunity to try every other tantalizing menu option. My husband had some of our usual favorites, like the kale salad and lemongrass soup. I took the vegetarian Miami Spice menu set. They gave me a birthday cake dessert in addition to my spice dessert - which is extremely generous of them! The service was perfect. Our waiter was on point in terms of availability and food course timing. He handled our group very well with no order errors, a super friendly professional attitude, and efficiency. No management issues either. Everyone, as our previous experiences at this restaurant are superior to many Miami restaurants. A really cool tidbit about Essensia is that they grow their herbs and other veggie food products on site. They even give tours of their gardens. It doesn't get any fresher than this! The cuisine theme, in my humble opinion, is asian fusion. It's delicious. Comparing it to many of the other higher-end restaurants in the area, this restaurant is actually fairly reasonable (again, this is Miami - also, I don't eat meat out). If I could give this place a thousand stars I would.

Brunch was a little disappointing. The baked egg dip should have been simple and simply amazing, but the yolks were not running, and the flavors were hard to find... The Bloody Mary was just okay. Also, I would have liked some more attention from the staff.

The food was delicious, the waiter was very slow, and I got real pissed off when I found out valet parking was $20. If I come back I'll walk because the valet fee was unexpected.

worst service ever. I was at the spa with my mother on her birthday, we decided to have lunch there and it was the worst decision ever. the decor is beautiful and the food is ok. i told the hostess and the server that it was my mother's birthday so they could make sure that her experience was on point. the server dropped off our wine, didn't take our orders and came back after 10 or 15 minutes(she was walking around, while we were waiting for her to take our order) with a " how may I help you" she didn't tell us anything about the menu or make suggestions. The manager is actually worse than the server. when I told her that the service sucked she told me that she disagreed with me and didn't even apologize. the only reason why i didn't walk out was because my mother wanted a quick bite and didn't want to leave after we wasted a good 15 minutes there. i don't know where they get these people from(manager/server). Avoid this place, especially if you are a local.
