First time in The Esslemont but not the last. Excellent service from the minute we walked in and some of the best food we've had in Aberdeen!
Food was delicious, and service good too. All good value. Atmosphere as you would expect during these times, quiet and a little chilly. No complaints and pleasantly surprised by the food. Would come back again and recommend to others.
Fantastic service, great food
Lovely food. Great service. Would definitely recommend and hopefully we can come back again soon.
Absolutely fantastic meal. We booked your Festive menu for Sunday 20th Dec as a last ‘outing’ before the restrictions and we wanted to support a local business. The food was incredible and it’s not often I clean every plate (3 courses). The waiter was friendly and attentive however I can’t remember his name, he covered the seating zone by the lower window area. I can say it was by far the best meal I’ve had this year, the food was fresh and left us feeling full but not stuffed in a bad way. The only downside, of course, was the no alcohol but this is not anything to do with your establishment as we are all in the same boat. Thank-you for a great meal.
Lovely atmosphere, lovely meal, friendly staff. Can't wait to go back.
Top notch service
Service was great and we were made to feel very welcome but felt the starter of scallops although very good was overpriced. In saying that the clementine cheesecake was the best.
Absolutely brilliant service. Nothing was to much trouble.
Had a lovely Sunday lunch here and it was a wonderful experience! Food was delicious, atmosphere lovely and the service was terrific. Simon was our server and he was a delight!
We all really enjoyed our meal and will be back sometime when we'll also be able to enjoy a glass of wine as well!
Always great tasting food and customer service
Really enjoyed our meal, and thanks for making it special on our 40th Anniversary since got engaged. We will back soon, Thanks again Stephen & Ros Peterhead 20/12/20
Really enjoyed our lunch.
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit today.. First class service and very nice food and wine. Felt very safe dining in the restaurant.
Lovely warm welcoming venue, staff very friendly and very clean place. I definitely will come back again.
Nice restaurant, nice atmosphere, very pleasant staff. A wee bit pricier than some of it’s competitors but that aside still worth a visit.
Peter our waiter dealt with the special requests we made on each occasion, going to extra lengths to ensure we were happy - a great asset to The Esslemont team - thanks
Lovely meal! One of the best we have had out! Deffo be back again!
We both had a starter - delicious then the steak frites - big mistake - very gristly and could hardly chew it - even the dog spit it out when I got home and the chips were very soggy and greasy. We did get offered a new one but decided against it as thought it would just be the same - the service we received on complaining was excellent and we did get a discount but still disappointing as my previous visit was excellent .
Fantastic Christmas celebration with delicious food all round! Thanks!
First time there , won’t be the last , the waiter was very attentive & couldn’t do enough for us & the food was excellent.
We had an excellent lunch, service was very good and we will definitely be back again
Amazing Christmas meal! Loved everything. We will be back!!
