What kind of rewards can I earn?

There are several exclusive rewards and experiences you can earn by using the Essential Rewards app, including complimentary dishes at both locations, private wine tastings, progressive dinners and private chef dinners with our Executive or Head Chefs.

Are my rewards valid at all Essence Restaurant locations?

Yes! Essential Rewards are valid at Bistro Bella Vita and The Green Well.

How often can I redeem points?

The Essential Rewards app will alert you when you’re able to redeem points, but you can always check your rewards app to track your progress. You may redeem as many rewards as you like, as often as you like, as long as you have rewards points available to use.

Can I redeem more than one reward in the same visit?

No, only one reward can be redeemed per visit.

Once I have a reward, what are the next steps to redeem it?

Redeeming rewards is simple! When you dine at Bistro or The Green Well, your server will ask for your member code, which you can access on your app. They’ll take care of the rest.

When do my points expire?

All points expire one year after you start redeeming points.

Can I use cash to acquire points or do I need to use a card?

You may use either a credit/debit card or cash to accrue rewards points. All points are tracked using your unique member code in the app rather than a card. However, if you wish to place an online or to-go order, you must use a credit card.

Can I use multiple cards to acquire points?

Yes, you can. All points are tracked using your unique member code in the app rather than your card.

Can I use mobile ordering without being a rewards member?

You can, but you’d be missing out!

Can I get loyalty points if I use the Heartland Mobile Pay platform?

Unfortunately, no. We are not able to reward points unless you complete a payment with a server.

Exclusions and Restrictions

Rewards points are accrued through regular in-store dining and regular carryout only. At this time, the following purchases do not apply toward rewards-point accrual: special events, ticketed events, private events, banquets, gift card purchases or catering.
