Eleve lives up to its name- Chic
This is a very chic venue. The decor does call attention to itself by its clearly designer design. This is not a bad thing.
Cocktails were very well crafted in my view, original taste profiles and and not too sweet. Served in classic cocktail coupes, this adds to the feeling of being in a soignee joint.
The food items nicely curated so one could have a good balance between delicate notes of seafood and fresh veg and the definitive meatiness of the killer Cornish game hen and the hunks o' filet.
One less than perfect dish was the garlic noodles. These were tasty but too dry and the portion for three a wee bit skimpy.
The molten chocolate cake dessert is also dated and offered nothing new by way a spice or presentation.

Great Restaurant - Asian fusion
Great food and a fantastic wine list. The Mango salad was wonderful & the spring rolls good as well (the Thai peanut dipping sauce was phenomenal). The waitress, however, was just a little kooky! When asked to describe the difference btwn 2 salads, she described one as being prepared with "shaved unripe fruit" and not as good as the other (how odd!). The tipping point (no pun intended) was when we asked a waiter to have our waitress come (of which I saw him do), she stopped at 2 other tables on her way over before doing so. Being that clearly they were fine, I was a bit put off by that and down tipped her slightly. Food and service is everything, and gave her slightly below a 20% tip. Over all, it's a great place & I would go back.

Appetizers were good. The
Appetizers were good. The carppacio of beef had a little too much citrus for my palate.
Imperial spring roll were execellent, Riesling Prawns were good.
Entrees....Cubed Filet Mignon which (as I keep getting told) was one of the best things my girlfriend has eaten since being out in california (we are from the UK). Scallops were good. Garlic noodles were superb! Excellent Asparagus dish.
Deserts....Creme brulee was the best we have ever tried, banana fritters were ok.
Can highly recommend the cocktails. All were excellent. Tequila Sour with egg white was superb. They also had desert cocktails which worked extremely well.
Quite expensive but probably due to having one too many cocktails!

Fantastic as ever. Sampled 8 items and each was delicious. And their hand crafted Moscow Mule's are possibly the best cocktail ever.!

Amazing food and great drinks
We had a fantastic dinner at Eleve last night. The food was excellent and the drinks were equally good. All of our dishes were very flavorful and super yummy. I'd give them 6 stars if possible.
I can't wait to return on a warm evening to enjoy the outdoor seating.

We had Mother's Day dinner at Eleve with my in-laws and my 7-year old daughter. I found everything on the menu to be very good, and lots of options based on your specific tastes.

We had a really great dinner and all 4 of us were very pleased with our food. Our server was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and suggestive. Overall, a very good experience that we would definitely opt for again.

My daughter and I had an early dinner on Sunday. Sat on the patio and enjoyed all of the menu items we picked.
The riesling prawn are to die for, even if the price is a little steep, $6.00 each. The braised eggplant is excellent, just like the cubed filet mignon but the best goes to a clay pot dish make with rice and assorted fish. The rice had soaked up the amazing sauce and it was to die for.

Great food..interesting & delicious
We enjoyed Eleve and will go back! It was a Sunday night so I really can't review how lively or noisy it is on a weekend. But our service was just perfect and everything tasted really great! The bill was very reasonable for a party of four with cocktails and wine....I would definitely recommend and we will be back! Thanks!

Four mature women met to catch
Four mature women met to catch up. Unfortunately, as the evening progressed (we sat down at 7 on a Saturday night) our voices got louder in order to hear each other over the din. The upstairs dining room was not available. On the plus side, the spring rolls, beef carpaccio, and ribs were delicious. Have another appetizer or main dish rather than the desserts, which are fine, just not outstanding. We agreed we would come back if we could sit upstairs. I would recommend this restaurant to younger friends.

This is a very convenient
This is a very convenient restaurant to the Lesher theater. The food was made with fresh ingredients and very good. The bar drinks are very overpriced, though inventive. I would return here again for its convenience factor when attending a performance at the theater.

Yummy Asian Fusion
Too my husband to Eleve for his birthday and they did not disappoint. The filet mignon and striped bass were really excellent. We got the green papaya salad as a starter and really enjoyed the flavors and texture. Also, the panna cotta and flourless chocolate cake were beautifully presented and just the right size. But you *must* order the roasted corn side if you go. It is utterly unique and so tasty! My only regret is not ordering another portion of that to go.

Love this place!
Upscale Veitamease Restaurant gets a 5 star from me for the service and food - Sebastian was very attentive and gave good details of food choices. Went there for a business lunch and we started with crispy calamarie - yum, and shrimp spring roll (soft rice paper) - so fresh tasting. Main course was marinated short ribs over rice with the best sauce ever! Tried a sparking water with hint of mint and orange peel - great flavors, went well with the meal! I would definately go again!

Lived up to it's billing
Eleve was my first venture into Vietnamese cuisine and I'm 64 years old! A friend picked the restaurant and an early Sunday dinner proved to be delightful. Located near The Lesher Center in Walnut Creek it does a bristling business I'm told on Friday and Saturday evenings. This being vacation season the restaurant was not crowded.
Any wine list having a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc gets a thumbs up from me. Bartender Cuong makes a mean Whisky Sour with a great deal of care and attention.
We split an excellent Papaya salad as well as a Bass Entree with Bok Choy and a side of garlic noodles. The food was excellent if a bit pricey and the service was very attentive and friendly. I'd highly recommend Eleve and I will be returning.

The food was very good. Did not understand why the service was slow. There were only two other occupied tables on an early Sunday dinner. Have been there a few times. Will go again but not in a hurry to go.

Went here for a birthday celebratio
Went here for a birthday celebration. I noted in the reservation that we had a birthday. When it came time for dessert, I mentioned the birthday again and she said she was aware. My friends were so surprised that the waitress already knew!
Also, the birthday girl has a gluten allergy and the waitress was very helpful in knowing what my friend could eat and what could be modified. Overall , great food and great experience!

The food was beautifully presented , every appetizer and entree ordered was delicious. The wait staff was courteous and attentive. Overall I enjoyed my lunch but felt that it was a little pricey for lunch. I will visit again but only for a nice romantic dinner for two.

Cool vibe and delicious food
Great place to go for a night out in WC. The cocktails are yummy as is the Asian nuanced dishes.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant has top quality asian preparations, well prepared and presented. Menu is somewhat limited, but each dish is carefully crafted. Space is small to medium in size. It has very little noise buffering, so when full. it is difficult to carry on a normal conversation. Staff is attentive but not overbearing and quite knowledgeable about wine pairings. Wine selection is somewhat ;limited.

Great for dinner with a friend
I had dinner with my friend I hadn't seen in quite some time. We were treated perfectly! The waiter was pleasant and helpful. We were not rushed and the food was great.

Bay Area Best
This is an one of the unusual restaurants in the Bay. Across the board, it is superior. An enormous amount of thought, hard work
and creativity has gone into it. It is a beautiful aesthetic ! I encourage you to go soon.

Loved the menus to start with
Loved the menus to start with - both food and wine menus! Did not check cocktails, but I suspect that was great too. Once food started coming it was a real treat to enjoy the evening. Got lucky with the weather and were able to sit outside, which also added to great experience we had. In the end Vietnamese coffee and simple, but decadent desserts were perfect too. Will definitely come back.
