Wait staff and reception terrific. Ambiance classy, a little crowded but elegant. Food was fine, not memorable. I didn't like my pasta al dente and should have been told that's how it's prepared....or they just did a bad job. My wife's angel hair was perfect.

It was our farewell Berlin dinner with new friends, and it did not disappoint. Essenza has a varied menu, and a wonderful Wine list. Everyone enjoyed their meal, and the plates were prepared beautifully.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
