I never write reviews, but these guys deserve the credit. Our server, Rosie, was so personable, knowledgeable, and made excellent suggestions that truly made the night special. We went the route of small plates and found every single one of them exceptionally delicious (crowd favorites include the pot stickers and lemongrass beef). Their cocktails are just as creative and beautifully presented as their food. Don't miss their smoked signature mai tai served in a glass box. Bravo guys!

About the restaurant
Family owned local Greek cuisine. Serving delicious food with homemade recipes, in a small cozy atmosphere. Hard to find amazing Greek wines that will surprise you. Shrimp Santorini, Mediterranean Grill, grilled octopus, are just some of the amazing dishes we server. Voted 2nd must try restaurant in the Marblehead, Salem, Swampscott area. "Neighborhood Gem"

This was our 3rd time at Elia Taverna. The food each time has been outstanding. We started with yummy zucchini and eggplant chips with tzatziki. My husband ordered the lamb shank, I had chicken skewers which came with the most delicious pita. We also had a side of Briam (vegetables and potatoes.) We brought some of each home for dinner the next night so we could enjoy a dessert. Do not skip dessert! We shared a luscious Ekmek Fataifi (shredded phyllo, milk custard, creme fraiche, toasted almonds.) There was live music the night we were there, a gentleman playing a keyboard and clarinet. That added a lot to a great evening! We will be back soon.

The Capital Grille's wine list features more than 350 selections, and its floor-to-ceiling wine kiosk regularly houses 3,500 - 5,000 bottles. Reservations are recommended but not required.

Great server, loved his wine recommendations. Food was cooked exactly as ordered. It was too dark to read the menu and see the food on my plate. Very noisy room.
