Valentines Day dinner. We ate from the Prix Fixe tasting menu. The food was fantastic and the service was great.
They offered a variety of locally sourced ingredients which I found to be wonderful.
The atmosphere was cozy and friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area.
Further I had questions and reached out to the restaurant via email and phone. They replied in a timely manner with accurate information.
I will be going back in the future.
We had a great dining experience! The food was delicious and loved the atmosphere for a great date night!
We have been dining here since the restaurant started and have never been disappointed. It is excellent for a business dinner to a romantic date night. A long menu with vegetarian options that routine rotates through dishes as the seasons change. Bret is one of the best chefs in Triangle, if not the best.
Food cold, terrible Monk Fish, dined here before Carolina -Duke game, soup butternut squash bad/ cold, would never recommend
Elaine’s never disappoints! Our dinner was delicious, the service is friendly and well executed and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Great job, Elaine’s!
Great! Beat Dook!
Wonderful meal, lovely setting, good service.
I like Elaine's and chose it for my birthday dinner. My two disappointments were that the lighting in the booths was so bad we needed our phone flashlight to read the menu and that of the 4 choices for entree on the fixed price menu, 3 of them were fish. The 4th was pork tenderloin. No vegetarian, no beef, no chicken, no other seafood. Just...fish. Seems like an easy problem to address. Still, the food was good.
Excellent meal-My wife had short ribs and I had the grilled trout...both excellent. Service was smooth and they catered to our requests very well. The desserts were to die for: peanut butter ice cream on chocolate. cake and apple crisp w cognac ice cream. Wine list was comprehensive and the choices by the glass were good.
Unfortunately, my experience was not what I expected given the rating that Elaine's has. I was driving in from Greensboro to eat there because I had a business meeting and also was missing some dishes from when I lived in Europe so had called ahead to check that they had what I wanted from the menu on-line. I was told the menu had changed but was assured they did have a different item I chose. When I arrived at the restaurant, I immediately asked to order that item and was told they had sold out. I had a 7:30 reservation so I felt if the restaurant knew they were running short on the dish, they could have asked if I wanted to reserve it ahead of time. Unfortunately, our waiter was not even gracious about it, or particularly friendly in general. Overall, a rather disappointing experience.
Excellent food, service good but not great. Solid as usual
Delicious! The Early Bird Special is wonderful. Each of us in our party of 5 enjoyed each course including all the wine pairings. The lentils in the king salmon entree were incredible!
Loved our meal at Elaine’s! The four I have us made a point to order appetizers and different entrées so we could each taste the others food. Everything was delicious. The flounder was fabulous the sauce although the salmon was even better. Venison steak was perfect. We all enjoyed our meal immensely and look forward to traveling 45 minutes again to dine in one of our top spots in the triangle!
I've enjoyed Elaine s as a special occasion place in the past, but was quite disappointed this time. The cheese plate had almost laughably minuscule cheeses, the only vegetarian option was a not very interesting huevos rancheros, and there was a great sounding goat cheese in phyllo appetizer where the goat cheese was very minimal. One persons pork was good, and our server, as always, was excellent. The little amuse bouche bisques are likewise very nice. Just not consistent quality this time.
This is one of our most favorite local top level restaurants. We bring our foodie out of town guests here - no matter where they are from , they are always impressed.
