The restaurant lost its liquor license two days before. The decor, which used to be cool and interesting, is gone. I don't know what happened to the restaurant . Food is still good but no ambiance and you have to byob.

After going there for many years, this will be our last visit. Ownership has changed, and transformed it into just another Chinese restaurant without a compelling reason to dine there. We will miss the old Elaine's.

We ordered a few exotic dishes i.e. Seacumber, dong boa meat, pine nut fish, they all horrible. Seacumber was cold and tasteless. Dong boa meat was dry and hard as rock. Pine nut fish was greasy and not crispy at all.

Peiking duck is superb as it's known for. Problem is that's the only thing is worth going for but others is worse than other places.

Finally used gift certificate and glad we dined there on Friday night. Pleasantly surprised for the happy hour was a bonus. Friendly attentive staff and manager/owners. Edamas were not that fresh. Overall, good food and cozy atmosphere.

What a disappointment.

Since the change of ownership, the once fairly decent "Asian Fusion" restaurant is now a full-blown Chinese restaurant (with an emphasis on Peking Duck) with extraordinarily mediocre sushi bar (the fish did not taste fresh) and a limited number of traditional Japanese dishes..

Food was marginal

Service was dreadful - they were so inattentive that I could (should) have walked out without paying the check and no one would have even noticed..

Nice decoration & interior. As for food & value, not worth going at all. They used old frozen fish for sushi and sashimi. Other Chinese dishes were very salty and greasy. Overpriced for everything!! Don't waste your time, Go somewhere else !

Went for friends birthday and found it under new management. So disappointing. Service lacking. Menu, still good food but has changed. The night we went it was not at all crowded yet they were out of a lot. Like chicken for satay. Yet there was chicken for every other dish so didn't quite understand. Also out of a few dessert items. Don't think we will be returning. Used to love this place.

Apparently Elaine's has a new chef. The food is not as good as it used to be. Additionally, two of the items that we intended to order and that were on the menu were no longer available because of the chef change. Very disappointed.

it was just OK - apps were reasonable - mains were a challenge - Service just OK - price is relatively high for what you get

Recently redid interior and changed menu. Perhaps under new ownership. Used to be excellent. Not any more. Wonton and hot & sour soups perfectly fine, but nothing great. Fried dumplings were very good. Sesame chicken a little on the mushy side, not crispy. Also more of an orange sauce, not really sesame. Chicken itself had a spongy consistency, not great. Shrimp chow fun was pretty bad. Noodles just a sticky gooey mess and the shrimp were absolutely gross, totally mushy. Perhaps frozen then recooked? Most desserts on menu were not available, only ice cream and some kind of cake, I think. And this was New Year's Eve! Very disappointing meal. We were there a few weeks before and had an equally disappointing meal. Used to love Elaine's. Scratching it off our list now.

This is my third time to Elaine's and by far the worst experience I've ever had. My wife and I were having a celebratory dinner and made reservations but had to wait 15 minutes for a table even though the restaurant was half empty. Then we ordered our usual meals that we normally order and the meal was not up to its usual standard. Needless to say they must have had a rough night because this is not what they are like usually.

We went with another couple of never ate there before. Food was god, but the service was horrible. We were embarrassed. We have been there many times before, but this was the worst.

The place is under new ownership with a new chef. The food has taken a hit. There are many nearby Asian and Asian fusion restaurants in Great Neck, and this one used to be superior in both its food and decor. It is now average at best with no qualities that make it stand out.
