Elaine's was wonderful. We arrived early, unknowingly 15 minutes before their official opening time, but they sat us anyway and took our drink orders early. The menu was a very manageable size. I had the onion soup with crab cake, a beautiful and delicious dish. I also had the short ribs with beet reduction and mashed potato, which was also delicious and beautiful to look at. My wife had the gnocchi, which she loved. One of the nicest meals I've had in a while.
Great food. Very knowledgeable and friendly service. The wait time between ordering, getting our salads and then our entrees was entirely too long. We finished our bottle of wine before we got our entrees. Not sure what the problem was. Food however was very good.
Seating is kind of weird but overall great experience, excellent food, and good wine
Fixed price menu on Valentine's Day. Below average salad first course. Fabulous filet mignon and scallops main courses. OK desserts. Nothing special. Very over-priced. Crowded tables. Hard to hear yourself think sitting so close to neighbors. Why don't restaurants think about seating? Ugh. Don't think we will do Elaine's again.
Food and service never fails to delight at Elaine's. Always exceeds my expectation. Love the staff as well. Friendly, funny and all around wonderful. The seafood dishes are exquisite and the Chocolate Tort dessert unmatched.
Fantastic food! Nice ambiance. Service was slow, but the food was worth the wait!
Elaine's was wonderful as always. Service is very good & the food was great -- as was the presentation. We'll be back.
Went here for Valentine's. For starters I had Prince Edward Island mussels which were fresh & meaty with toasts to soak up the beautiful sauce. For main course had the filet mignon with fantastic bearnaise sauce over potato pancake and topped with a bit of asparagus. Just delicious. For desert I had a port from the ample after dinner menu, with a chocolate + fruit tart, which was also delicious. Professional & friendly waiter.
A wonderful pre-Popejoy dinner... delicious! A true gem in a lively neighborhood.
Outstanding service, great food and wine. Waiter was attentive without hovering, knowledgeable. Nice ambiance. We both had the short rib, which was amazing.
