    The food was excellent and the wine list very good indeed. Both food and wine were very good value. The restaurant itself is modern and functional so not great for atmosphere but that did not detract from the evening! So, what let it down? It was a busy evening but the service suffered as a result. No problem with the server’s attitude, which was fine but it reached a point that things like clearing the table after our main course just took too long. However, on balance very good and we will return.

    The decor could use some work. There were few staff for how busy the restaurant was. Food was excellent, red wines by the glass were okay. We had the beef bourgignon, steak with Morile sauce, and burger, all very good. Started with the escargot and brioche, which was excellent.

    I ordered what I wanted, a salad, the waitress told me it was too big for me so I panic ordered and ordered an egg dish. I really didn’t like it and was frustrated I hadn’t been allowed to order my choice of dish. Very quiet in the restaurant. The waitress was trying her best but rushed off her feet.

    All the dishes we had were great, especially liked the red wine sauce that accompanied the bavette steak and the eggs with epoisse sauce was a wonderfully rich opening to our meal. The service was great, even though we didn't speak much French, the host/waitress kindly and patiently explained some items to us.

    A nice simple restaurant with really excellent Burgund cuisine. Very delicious. Price fair. My wife and myself tried different menues and were very happy and satisfied with the quality of the courses. The service was fully ok. The ambiente and atmosphere is somehow a bit dry and not really cozy. Overall it was excellent food for a fair prize and a nice experience.

    A lucky find for a Sunday night. Exceeded our expectations with excellent food and excellent service. The wine list was short but adequate and reasonably priced. My wife and I highly recommend L'essentiel.

    The restaurant was quiet when we arrived, but filled nicely. The food was presented very well and was of a high quality. The wine list was good with reasonable prices. Service was friendly and efficient.
