Elixir Ratings and Reviews
Great service and atmosphere. The food is interesting and tasty. My husband ordered the filet, while I ordered the shrimp scampi. Both were delicious. My favorite thing about the restaurant, however, is the service - attentive yet not obtrusive. Elixir is a favorite place to linger over a mean and enjoy conversation. Very private.
We were in the area for a meeting, and searched for the most highly-rated restaurant serving "New American" cuisine. The setting is nice enough considering the conversion of previous industrial space, the service was terrific, and the food was the star. We had the vegetarian risotto and the shrimp scampi. Both were excellent and contained creative and unusual ingredients that harmonized well. Clearly a lot of thought goes into the recipes and preparation. We don't visit the area often, but when we are anywhere nearby we will make a detour to eat at this excellent restaurant.
I love this place and should go more often. Its very cozy and I like the food a lot. The waitress was really excellent, getting in our little order before the huge tables going to the theater, keeping us on schedule. Very pleasant. The Upper Valley can be pretty bad for professional wait service, but this place is an exception (they CRUMB the tables!). Also very inexpensive and good wines, which is so nice to find. Jane and Skip really kick it here.
Perfect combination of lively, relaxed atmosphere and creative food. Specialty cocktails were weak, but interesting wine and beer selections made up for this miss. The special roasted sugar pumpkin risotto was a huge hit, as were the salads, mussels and fries and desserts. Duck confit appetizer lacked flavor. Server was busy, but knowledgeable and attentive. All in all an enjoyable meal; we will surely return.
We were warmly greeted and offered several table locations in claiming our reservation. The restaurant was very busy with pre-theatre diners, but the waitstaff was able to bring us our drinks and bread/olive oil while we settled in with the menu. The wine list was both very interesting and affordable, by glass or bottle. We ordered "antipasto for two" which was tasty, but skimpy to share. Another starter was duck confit which was very good. The petit filet steak was ordered rare, but tended almost to medium which detracted from the experience. Food was of good quality, well-presented, and with good, pleasant service. It was a birthday celebration and a surprise ice cream with candle was a very nice ending, along with attentive goodbyes from staff and owner. We'll certainly visit again, but may consider a less-busy evening or time without theatre crowd.
From the owner greting you at the door and sitting us to the outstanding service , everything was perfect . The antipasto for two fed three with everyone satisfied . The onion soup with carmalized onions was delicious as was the perfectly prepared steak . We will definitely return soon .
Excellent menu cooked from scratch. Elixir is ideal for a special occasion, the service was second to non, our waitress Lyn was excellent, providing advice regarding where we should visit while we are in the area. The best meal I have had in a long long time.
Great meal in a fun atmosphere. We split pumpkin risotto special , petit filet mignon, salad with bacon dressing. Steak was perfectly cooked and a good value for the price, pumpkin risotto was delicious. Service was friendly and professional. We would be regulars if not a 6 hour drive!
Cosmopolitan, lively but not noisy, atmospheric (dark wood, soft lights, good art), terrific food, comprehensive wine list, excellent service, and hosts who are welcoming. Great for a special occasion or an evening out. A New York buzz in an up and coming Vermont town.
We had a wonderful dinner with friends who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. The food was outstanding. The Elixir salad was unusual and delectable. Also unique was the onion soup served with a small ball of cheese rather than the normal provolone on top of the bowl. The best part of the evening was our wonderful server. We told jokes at the table and she joined in with her own. Absolute "hoot".
We stopped by Elixer for a late dinner while in town for a work conference. The location made us a bit skeptical but our experience once we got inside was outstanding. The service was excellent and the food was even better. Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone considering it.
