Absolutely the best happy hour in the valley! I am so glad it's just over a mile from my house! Try the half-price lamb chops during HH (if you like lamb). An incredible meal, but also very sharable. One warning: These martinis, even at HH, are really double martinis. Keep that in mind before you drive! (And even if you have a driver, I'd never drink a third!)

This place is the biggest pretender I have ever set foot it. I read some of the other reviews before heading there last night and I didn't really believe it. Unfortunately all the negative was very true. First I tried to order a dirty martini. The waiter came back and said we don't have olives. So no olive juice. He said well I can get you a martini with pickles in it. I said great. He comes back an informs me that the only vodka they have is pear vodka. So the only option is to order one of their bullshit signature drinks. I had two different one's neither was impressive. Next I asked about the charcuterie. The waiter didn't really no anything about it. He tried to push something else on me. I said I'll have the charcuterie and he responded with the bison tartare is excellent. I'm not sure if the tightness of his jeans was effecting his brain or what. By the way the charcuterie was ok at best. Presentation was a joke. Im not sure the chef or her staff know what a quenelle is but they need to find out. Slopping some mustard on a plate is not appealing. ESSR will not see another penny. If they are only looking to cater to a certain crowd then fine. I just don't need to go to a place where they order for me and I basically don't have a say in it. By the way Gin is what my grandmother drank. If i wanted the taste of pine needles, I'd go chew on an Xmas tree.

This place is cool, I've gone a couple of times and had fun. it's nothing crazy, just a nice place with hot people and pretty good music. Dress code is enforced, want to dress up nice to go here, drinks are typical nyc expensive. The only thing is that some nights, there are a LOT of guidos and it starts getting a little too packed.
