Amazing. Always amazing. Every course we ordered was superb. Our waiter was knowledgeable, polite, prompt, and genuinely friendly. Everyone who works here makes you feel welcomed and appreciated. I love this restaurant.
Outstanding food. Excellent wine list. Perfect service.
Best meal in stl
Amazing food! Also, a great spot for a nice date night. It is pricey, but worth it if you have a special occasion!
Delicious dinner with great wine pairings. We did the prix fix dinner with wine pairings. Each course was delicious and our server explained both the food and the wine pairings very thoughtfully. The restaurant was not busy, so we probably got more attention than normal. The evening was expensive but it was delightful for our anniversary.
Service and food were outstanding. I took my significant other for his birthday and we had a great experience.
Great restaurant ... great service and a wonderful ambiance.... a bit pricey but good
Just OK. Wasn’t blown away by anything in particular; for the price, it’s underwhelming. The sommelier was far too wordy.
Overrated but nice. Will return seasonally but not more frequently. Service was not good
My husband and I were in town from Chicago. We each did the Prix Fixe option with wine pairings. Besides the fact that each course and wine were wonderfully paired, service was fantastic. I appreciated how the servers worked together as a team, were extremely friendly and enhanced the experience. We greatly enjoyed our conversations with the sommelier hearing about each wine’s background, the pairing with each dish and wine in general. It truly was an enjoyable evening.
Exceptional meal. Imaginative and delicious. Service was understated but perfect.
I was expecting a Michelin experience at an approachable price point. The dining area was loud, but that was due to the other patrons talking loudly. I would have thought the etiquette here would call for a more quiet and serious environment. The light from the kitchen was a piercing white vs the soft yellow of the dining area, so that created an imbalance in the ambience of the dining room. The food didn’t knock my socks off, which it should have for the price. Definitely a lot of other places to check out before coming back. Missing the mark on this kind of market, which is strange since Olio and Benevolent King are great.
Good service, interesting food but overpriced for value.
Amazing food, great friendly service. I have a gluten allergy and I was well attended to, including fresh baked gluten-free bread that, those who tasted, said was better than the non-gluten-free bread. Each course was tweaked to make it gluten-free. WELL worth the visit. Will definitely return.
Just wonderful. Certainly one of the best meals we've ever had.
This was my second time dining at Elaia. The service and food are wonderful. The wine pairings work well.
This is not a place that is everyone's price range, however, even for a special occasion.
Awesome. We did the 10 course tasting menu and were thoroughly impressed
Have had better food. The third course lacked salt across the board. Good food- not memorable.
The best bite of food we have ever had. Service was phenomenal and the decor was very chic.
Only issue was that it was quite hot in the restaurant (yet anytime a dish was set down that didn’t even matter)
Great food and service; good wine pairings; and pleasant atmosphere. The meal was delicious and well-paced. Ben Paremba is the man!
Absolutely delicious! Picked this place for my wife and me to celebrate our anniversary and it did not disappoint. Food was phenomenal, well paired with delicious wine, and left us stuffed with the 4 course Prix Fixe and wine pairing. The staff were quick, friendly, and informative about the wines and what we were eating. They helped us celebrate a special night and we will definitely be back
Great staff, great food
We had a lovely Mother’s Day Brunch! Fresh and superbly prepared meal.
It was acceptable
Very interesting and tasty food. Great service. Very pricey. Small expensive drinks. Great place to splurge.
The serving of our meal (four-course prix fixe) was well-paced, with space between each course to encourage savoring your drink, conversation and the atmosphere. Our server did a great job assisting with dietary restrictions and explaining the ingredients in each dish. I really like the feel of this place, and the food is a cut above what you'll find in all but a few other restaurants in the St. Louis area. Expect to pay accordingly. Highly recommended.
Excellent evening. The dinner is as much about art and the visual and tactile experiences as it is about the food. All were thoroughly enjoyed
Great experience for birthday celebration
Food is EXCELLENT. Service fine. Very slow at first. Got the amouse Bouche and explanation twice. Had written ahead our dietary restrictions but then they said they couldn’t do the 10 course for us. They did to a 6 course in between so that was nice. Overall didn’t really matter because food was SOOOOO GOOODDDD
My husband and I went for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was one of the best meals we had. It was definitely worth every dollar to celebrate a special occasion. Thinking of all the tasting menus we had before, this one is offered at a great value. The steak, duck ribblets, halibut and coconut & mango dessert were to die for. It is an upscale place but the environment was also cozy which makes you feel very comfortable. I can’t wait to come back soon!
The food was extraordinary with excellent wine pairings. This is a dining experience not to be missed.
Best meal I’ve ever had.... would recommend highly
We enjoyed our experience at Elaia very much. The dishes were creatively and thoughtfully prepared, and the service was impecable. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. We'll be back!
Elaia was very quiet, romantic, and ideal for an intimate dinner. Everyone was very knowledgeable and attentive. You can see the staff work as a team and everything was stunning and seamless. The food looked like art and tasted magical. The chefs tasting menu is the way to go!
Excellent place to dine out. High prices but well worth it!
Excellent food and flavors. Small portions, but a lot of work goes into food prep and high quality ingredients.
Excellent evening of outstanding food!
Always delightful and worth the experience
Outstanding food and wine. Great creativity with all courses. Loved our sommelier.
