One of our favorite places to dine in the Upper Valley. The menu is imaginative with seasonal specials and everything is perfectly prepared. The wine specials are especially nice- you can ask for a taste before ordering a bottle- plus it's a great opportunity to try wines you might never think to try. The atmosphere and service is always warm and welcoming. Highly recommended!

We love love love this restaurant. It’s comfy, medium low lit, with excellent food and affordable but strong drinks. We always get the truffle fries, and if I could eat their filet Mignon every day I would. We were given a gift card to this restaurant for our wedding, and we’ve been back three times since, and given a gift card here to a friend recently. Highly recommended, just make sure to make reservations on weekends

Great find. Everyone in the staff pitched in to make this a great dining experience. Reasonably priced . As a New York Metro area resident, I find that this restaurant would easily be a great find in the New York area. Will be sure to be back when in the area again.

I've always enjoyed dining at Elixir or just sitting at the lovely bar having an exceptionally prepared cocktail by the experienced staff! Skip and Jane make dining at Elixir a wonderful time and the perfect reason to go out for dinner. Love the food, the ambiance and the staff. Will be back again!

We don't get up this way often, but having had a wonderful meal a couple of years ago, this was the only place we considered. We both ordered the shrimp scampi, which is one of the best I've tasted. both deserts - "Bananas Foster" bread pudding and La Joie du chocolat were worth saving room for.

My wife and I have dined here several times over the years and have never been disappointed. It's our regular spot for birthdays, anniversaries an special events. The owner always greets us with a warm hello and smile. We have always had wonderful wait staff and they never rush us thru our meal. One time we had to sit at the bar which turned out to be a wonderful experience. Great bar tender with a good sense of humor.
Our regular meal is the Filet mignon . Always done to perfection.

We always enjoy going to Elixir. The food is excellent as is the service. On a cold winter night, it can be a little chilly when people come and go. Adding a entrance that is separated from the dining room would fix that issue.

Elixir is a great restaurant with outstanding food and service. We have always been well taken care of when we go. They go above and beyond to accommodate your needs. This time I had the filet and it was the best. Perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned.

We love this place. Had a gift card from our wedding, and we came back again a second time this weekend. Our favorite Central Valley restaurant. Filet mignon and truffle fries are superb, and I really appreciate that their cocktail pricing is reasonable. For a nice night out, this place can’t be beat.

The best dining experience in the Upper Valley! Classy but not stuffy. Gorgeous old train station transformed into intimate high ceilinged venue for all aesthetic types.

Located in a renovated old train wharehouse, the outside is totally unpretentious. You stand a good chance of ignoring the restaurant if you walk or drive by. I discovered Elixir through Trip Advisor and I did not regret. For desert, I had chocolate ice cream, made most likely the same way as my mother. It tasted the same.

Having lived in the Upper Valley for nearly 15 years, I have probably dined at just about all of the restaurants and after eating at Elixir for an anniversary dinner, I have to say that I think it’s possibly the best restaurant for fine dining in the area, and that includes neighboring Hanover. It has maintained a high quality for well over a decade, an achievement in itself, but the quality and flavor of the food we had there was just outstanding. The wine list is inspiring and the value for money is better than anything you will find in Hanover in my opinion. I would recommend Elixir to anyone looking for delicious food, wine and cocktails.

Culinary gem of a place in the area. A little hike from Killington area but well worth the trip. The food and service were outstanding. Will be back again if coming to Vermont

Had gone to the Elixir years ago and at the time we thought the atmosphere and food not as good as other restaurant options. We were pleasantly surprised when we tried Elixir this week before going to the theater. It wasn't as noisy and the menu was more focused with a good wine selection. The wait staff was accommodating, making sure we were on time for the show, and efficient. We would definitely go back and can recommend it.

We had a great meal before the show at Northern Stage. The staff was very accommodating because we needed to move our reservation 15 minutes later. We had a nice leisurely meal that was neither too fast nor too slow. The food and drinks were excellent! I would recommend!
