    Dinner on Tuesday night so not many patrons in restaurant. Service was very good and prompt with good advice from waitress. Setting was very pleasant and tables not too close together.

    We are monthly regulars and the service and food is always excellent. Dom is always there to welcome us and the atmosphere is great for casual or fine dining, not too loud or busy. The service is excellent, water always get topped up with needing to ask. The pace of each course is just right, not too quick or slow. The menu is very good, great variety and most importantly it's consistent. Every time we visit the standard of foods is always fantastic. Esca Grill is one of the best restaurant in Melbourne and certainly the best in the west. Try the BBQ King prawns or the Hand Made Croissant with Mud Crab. You'll love it!

    Disappointed with the 45 minute wait between starter and entree. Also lack of table service.

    Service was great, food was good but overly priced for what you got, great atmosphere but was really noisy so was not as enjoyable as I would have liked.

    The food is absolutely fantastic and delicious. I’ve been four times this year and the food was to die for flavour of the food is the best. A bit more lightning would be nice.

    The staff were attentive without being annoying and the food was faultless. Try the dessert sampler for two, you won’t be disappointed. Well worth the money!

    Escar Grill was outstanding as always. We have been coming here for years and have not once been disappointed with both food and service. One of the best restaurants for quality of food and service. Could not recommend more highly..

    I have been dining at Escagrill for 15 years now and the quality of the food and service has remained impeccable during all that time. It remains one of the best local fine dining venues in Moonee Valley.

    This was the one night my husband and I had to go out (his brithday). The only time we have ever gotten a baby sitter. The restaurant cancelled our booking and closed the restaurant for a function. When we turned up at the door they said they texted everyone (no text) but they did try to call me at 5:30 that afternoon when I would have been handing over to the baby-sitter and getting baby to bed so this was not nearly enough notice. The only night out in a year and this is what we got. Love their seafood platter for two, but not sure that I'll ever book again after this. Very disappointing.

    Love this place. Local to us but feels high end - would rival any fine dining in city that we have been to. Service really good. Food consistently good! We have eaten here about 5 times and have never been disappointed - hence why we keep coming back. Have recommended to our friends. Tom and Donna

About the restaurant

A classy surf 'n’ turf?

Escagrill is a classy modern Italian steak, seafood and oyster bar, where fresh produce is combined with elegant dining and superior service. The dining space is home to intimate booths, an oyster bar overlooking the busy open kitchen, and there is also a private function room ready for your next event. Escagrill and its eclectic menu really does have something for everyone! Try the pan roasted spring bay scallops with cauliflower puree, chives and olive oil for entree, and then move on to one of their rich meaty mains. Our favourite? The confit duck with red wine and vinegar reduction - YUM! For a dining experience that ticks all the boxes try Escagrill.

Best Dish: chocolate tasting plate for two!
