Excellent food and service!! Fun brunch location!! Order the meatball sandwich! 😋
Great restaurant. Our second visit in a week as we were on vacation. Silvia the waitress was superb. Food was outstanding and 6 stars wouldn’t be enough for this cool restaurant in the Arts District.
We had a lovely meal of lemonade, bread with butter we ate all of the bread but left the crust which was a little hard to chew, beet salad and spaghetti. Dinner was delicious s usual.
Great food as usual
Vibrant atmosphere with turquoise/black bar area. Lots of tables. Crowded. Loud. Open kitchen. Menu was simply laid out with some chic-chic offerings.
Bread is profoundly beautiful. Dark crust, chewy interior.
Cauliflower appetizer was notable. Delightful to eat with thin, crispy coating and zippily seasoned.
Ink squid pasta arrestingly spicy. Carbonara-meh. Chicken, potato and wax bean entree sublime.
Absolutely fantastic food mostly made in house. Never disappoints! A Vegas gem and best kept secret!
Everything was fabulous from Sylvia, our adorable and knowledgeable waitress, to the homemade sourdough and burrata to what my friend described as “the best spaghetti & meatballs of her life”.
Great way to put the cap on my birthday. Food and service were top notch.
Ate here two nights in a row.
We love Esther's! We just found it to be a bit too warm in the restaurant the other night & a bit too loud but the food was excellent & the service was very good as well. We'll keep it in our rotation for sure.
Only reason why it didnt get a 5 star is because the bathrooms were dirty.
I ate at Esther's Kitchen twice on my recent visit, once for brunch and the second time for lunch. Both times I had great good. My lunch companion noted that it was too noisy for his taste but he did enjoy his food. I prefer to eat where the locals eat, rather than on the LV Strip! I will eat at Esther's again on my next visit in February.
The food & service are always on point. I highly recommend this place.
The knowledge of our server was amazing. Helpful, didn’t rush us even though the place was packed on a Monday night. Food & cocktails as good as ever
Very tasty food and friendly people. Would definately recommend
Loved it. Wish I could have the restaurant near to home back in The UK.
It was a great evening. The service was the best part.
Incredible baked goods super fast service! Can’t wait to come back!
Silvia our server was the best! She made us feel welcome and had great recommendations.
We usually eat at the big hotels while visiting Vegas. We heard about EK and decided to venture out. We’re so glad we did. This place is the real deal. Simple, casual and a great vibe. Eric our server was attentive and went along with our desire to course out what we were having. Food was sensational. Best spaghetti and meatballs I’ve ever had. Thank you Chef James! Can’t wait to return.
I've always had lukewarm feelings about Vegas. Yes, lots of cool restaurants but I live in New York, so many of those cool places places I visit at home. Meanwhile, the hordes of alcohol fueled tourists I can do without. So I was actively looking for someplace "local" but memorable. This was it! Fantastic meal! I had three courses (salad with peaches followed by pork carbonara followed by prochetta) and two different cocktails. Taken care of superbly by the bar and wait staff throughout the night. I will definitely be back and recommend it to others. Great to find places like this and know that there is more to LV than the Strip! PS: It's in the Arts District, the Vegas answer to Bushwick (but in a good way).
Sad to said, but we arrived by 3:00 pm when the kitchen was almost ready to close, so we order in a hurry, but the dishes that we ordered were so good. The service very friendly.
Love this place, best LV restaurant. Every dish is so fresh, handmade pasta, homemade sourdough wheat, lovely butter created toppings..
Wine list is fantastic, it always changes..so don’t expect same old! I always get beet salad .. didn’t get pasta this time, stuck to veggies..yum panzanella peach/tomatoe with pesto, but rats..again, homemade.
What else can you say? Oohhh..great desserts!
The Owner-chef is doing his best to deliver the authentic regional cuisine of Abruzzo. And does so with his personal creative “interpretations “.
One thing that stood out and made the entire evening worth it was the superb service and attitude of our server Ida. The wine steward was good too.
I’ve visited this restaurant in the past for dinner and had an amazing experience. I stopped by for Sunday brunch and did not feel the same unfortunately. The breakfast menu items were not anything to be excited about. The toast was so hard that it was difficult to bite. The service was also subpar.
Esther’s kitchen is voor vegas begrippen een bijzondere en hippe zaak.
Goede service, minpunt is de heftige muziek die zo hard stond dat de serveerster niet te verstaan was. Dit maakt het ook erg rommelig. Eten was goed, een verademing na alle burgers.
Great food away from the Strip. Pretty noisy until the crowd dwindled around 10pm.
The food was excellent, the service great, nice atmosphere. The hostess didn’t have very good people skills though. She was not very welcoming, but everything else about the evening was nice.
Great food! The only problem was the scarcity of open parking spots. We went on a First Friday and had to park three blocks away in a really bad neighborhood.
Our waiter was a disappointment. His description of the menu was rushed. Took him several times to answer my question about Mary's chicken. He was rude when he asked "how are you doing with the chicken.?" I answered "I'm finished" He replied, "I'm not talking to you. I'm talking to the lady." We've been to Ester's many times and this is the first bad experience we've had with a waiter.
Consistently excellent food. Come with high expectations and never disappointed. Relative to Strip, incredible value and comparable food to the best restaurants.
Very lively and crowded place. Not your typical Vegas restaurant. Loved the pasta and bread service with burrata. Pizza was just OK. The desserts were not good. Seemed like they were trying to hard to make a complex dessert.
Overall, I would go back. Stick with the pasta and you can't go wrong.
Fun vibe with open kitchen. Excellent service and most importantly, delicious food. Choose anything from the menu—you can’t go wrong. I went twice in the same week.
As always, excellent food and service. Our Server Sylvia is the best. We always ask for her. Very Knowledgable on menu and always very nice.
You can tell this is a great place when you show up on a Tuesday 15 minutes after they open and there is already a wait, including at the bar. Make a reservation.
The pasta was fantastic. I watched dish after dish leave the kitchen and wanted to taste each one.
Amazing Italian food in Vegas. A friendly laid back place away from the strip - one of my favorite restaurants in Vegas.
Outstanding dinner and excellent service in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Looking forward to my next visit!
Food was great
Best bread and tuna appetizer I have ever had
Great little place off the strip. Pity the service doesn’t match the good food and very reasonable prices.
The food is always amazing and the decor is awesome. The bartender was nice enough to make me an incredible mocktail (since I'm pregnant). They ended up running an hour behind on our reservation which wasn't the end of the world but there wasn't any acknowledgement or apology. Also we had a very hard time getting our servers attention and never got the second drink we were hoping for. Other than that we had a nice time, the pizza we had was by far the best thing of the night but it was all really good!
