Great restaurant with a fun atmosphere. The food is consistently great and lots of good choices!
Have eaten many times at Elixir before heading to a show at Northern Stage. Makes for a great evening. Food is always excellent and their "elixirs" are creative and affordable! The owner has always been there to greet people which adds so much to an always wonderful experience.
Food was perfect. House salad great and veal wonderful. Catered to our special dietary requirements. Wonderful!!
Elixir, once again, exceeded our expectations. The menu was a delightful mix of our classic favorites and some new selections. The Vegetarian Risotto was one of the best I’ve ever experienced. The service was also exceptional. Tara anticipated our needs from beginning to end. We will be back very soon!
I had the wonderful Truffle Fries followed by a Caesar Salad and a delicious Sea Scallops Special with a French Chardonnay. I highly recommend these choices, they were very good. Elixir continues to provide an excellent dining experience in downtown White River Junction, VT.
My husband and I have been going to Elixir since they have opened. We’re in the area twice a year when we visit Harpoon events and just love ending our stay at Elixir!
Great drink menu and food was so tasty.
Skip and his people are wonderful. Our favorite place within hundreds of miles.
A favorite destination every year—the owner’s presence is always noticed!!! Never take the cocoa fisted filet off the menu!
The dinners are always delicious, with specials changing all the time. Portion sizes look small at first, but they actually are perfect!
Our waiter was outstanding! My mom has some food issues (acid reflux) and he communicated these perfectly to the kitchen (who was also accommodating!). Food was delicious, well presented and VERY reasonably priced. Thank you!
The food was excellent, with really interesting flavors, and the server was friendly and very competent. The menu is limited (easily visible online, so you can look and see if there are options you'll like), but we each found an entree we enjoyed very much (shrimp/filet mignon). Portions are good but not huge, and prices are a little high for Vermont (more than we usually spend), but not unreasonable. Ambiance is fine, though kept a little chillier than we like. Great experience overall!
Really a pleasure to return to Elixir. We used to live in the area and I was happy to see this is still great.
Elixir has a solid and reasonably priced drink assortment alongside a focused, tasty menu. I had the rotating vegetarian risotto and was not disappointed! The old freight house venue has a laid back vibe to go along with its history tied to the railroad.
Skip and Jane run a great place. Staff take pride, and it shows.
Good food, attentive staff. Always a home run. We find Elixir a great pre theater experience
Food is good and like the owner visits the tables.
A nice restaurant with a limited but varied menu. Lots of reasonably priced wines. A good value.
I was shocked that I could find this excellent restaurant in the middle of Vermont. Really enjoyed the fig cheese and bacon appetizer, the curry mussels, and the lemon veal. Very impressive!
Great place to eat. Bar tender recommended the salmon and it was fantastic. Drinks were also good
Fun place and the mussels were terrific.
The go-to pre show dining spot for the Northern Theatre.
Excellent meal, great service, delicious wine.
Wife and I and two friends enjoyed dinner very much
Awesome gem where for a very reasonable price you get an impeccable meal with wonderful service! Definitely ask Skip to recommend the right wine for your meal to get a great pairing.
Jane and Skip's commitment to excellence has resulted in consistent success. We had a terrific meal, and a great evening with family friends.
Perfect as always! Wish we could just live there...😉
Exceptional food with just the right portion size. The salmon was fantastic! Our server could not have been better, she was timely but we never felt hurried. She was knowledgeable about the wine and made great suggestions for entrees.
Beautiful ambience, excellent knowledgeable service, and superb food presentation and flavor.
This is a family run business, and it’s run really well. The service is pleasant, the atmosphere cozy, the bar nice if you only want a drink, and the owners are there making sure it works. Food, wine, drinks all very fairly priced, good value. This is our second visit, hardly our last. A definite must if you’re in the area. There is a base menu and then specials; so for example, we had the vegetarian risotto. We’re not vegetarians but it was really tasty, rice perfectly done, served hot from the kitchen. My partner had the petite filets, done to perfection. Nice desserts but we controlled ourselves, this time. :-)
Delightful evening, best restaurant in the Hanover area. Great drinks, steaks cooked to perfection, side dishes enhanced the entrees, portions not overwhelming or too small. Great presentation. Thoughtful and unobtrusive service. Lively atmosphere with active bar. Elixir is an excellent choice for well behaved children and well behaved adults!
We were so pleased with our choice of venue for our wedding anniversary. The service and food were outstanding, and it was difficult to chose. Maybe there should be a tasting menu as a preamble to choosing larger options! We will definitely return.
Perfect ambiance and wonderful food. A favorite. Love to go here.
Once again, Elixer was superb. We have never been disappointed - filet is always the finest cut, tender and cooked to perfection. Appetizers are plentiful and creative. Desserts are divine. We never miss an opportunity to visit!
My wife and I return regularly to Elixir; it remains our favorite restaurant in the Upper Valley. The meals are consistently delicious, very thoughtfully but never pretentiously prepared. The atmosphere is upbeat, but the setting remains comfortably intimate. The staff are always warm and friendly. Highest recommendation!
Wonderful food, service and ambiance!!
The food was excellent, we sat near a windows overlooking the rail yard which was OK, however, there was the distinct smell of diesel fuel in the air which was kind of a negative. Unfortunately it comes with the territory I guess. The menu is limited, but all the choices are excellent and the meals we had were outstanding. The dessert choices are to die for too!
Food was good but portions were small. I ordered the chicken thigh over veggies and got one small thigh and a small portion of broccoli rabe for $18. Left hungry.
The food was well executed but also surprising, with unexpected flavors
