A perfect evening for a family dinner at Elliott’s. The food was delicious, wonderful presentation and there was a gluten free option. Everything was just wonderful! A special evening made even better with the fantastic dining experience. Jackson was a great server. He made good recommendations, was patient and very attentive. Again, a perfect evening!!!
I think we hit them on an off night. There were only a few tables filled, but despite that, it took so long to get our drinks that the appetizer arrived before the cocktails. And then dinner came out as soon as we finished the appetizer. We were seated and fed within 45 minutes. A whirlwind for a nicer dining experience. The food was great though. I would try it again!
I’ll start with areas to improve. Parking is extremely tight. Beware if you drive a large truck as you’ll find it extremely hard to maneuver. Service needs improvement too. Our waiter was extremely forgetful. Started off by bringing me the wrong beer, then failing to bring me the tea I ordered as well. Forgot to order one of our desserts, and forgot to bring a to-go coffee to one of our party members. He also forgot to come and get our payment after he dropped the check off. Unacceptable for a restaurant of this caliber.
The good: the food was absolutely amazing. I originally ordered the elk steak only to find out the were out of it. I opted for the lamb instead. It was wonderfully tender and flavorful. All our party enjoyed their meals. Dessert was also well done. I had the goat cheese cheesecake...awesome.
The seating was a bit cramped, but not to the point of being uncomfortable. They also had a nice fire going out front if you wanted to hang out afterwards. Despite the poor service, I’d definitely eat here again simply because the food made up for it.
Fantastic restaurant! Great food, wine, and atmosphere!!
We had a reservation for 745 pm on Valentines day. The hostess was completely overwhelmed and was not keeping track of the online reservations with the patrons that walked in. We waited over 30 minutes to be seated while watching empty tables sit idle. Once seated at the table, we noticed that it wasn't prepared with napkins and silverware. Our waiter was inexperienced and it showed with his lack knowledge of the menu and setting the table and uncorking the wine bottle. The food was great as always. Truly disappointed as we have always enjoyed our overall experience at Elliot's. We will return and recommend Elliots' but it has lost some points with a loyal customer.
Waited over an hour to get seated even though I had reservations
Lovely service, excellent food, really welcoming and relaxed but elegant surroundings.
Excellent food and service. This was a birthday dinner. Our server was attentive and very knowledgeable of menu.
My fiancé and I wanted a nice location to catch up with some friends who were driving in from out of town. I thought it was important that the meal be worth the drive. The restaurant was packed when we got there. But it was a fun bustling environment. Once we got seated, we started with some wonderful calamari and gnocchi appetizers and it only got better from there. . . I had the filet, my fiancé had the salmon and my friend trieds the taco special. All of us loved every bite! The food here is just top notch! You can't go wrong!
We had a wonderful evening, great food in a charming and lovely restaurant. We have eaten at Elliotts before and have never been disappointed. Everything was excellent.
The food was excellent as always. The staff was friendly and inviting. A pleasant dining experience.
Greeters could not sort out our table. They made a big deal about water choice and napkin choice That service was good. Rest of service ok but very unorganized. Food was good.
The staff seemed very overwhelmed and flustered. It was a busy Saturday night, which should not be an unexpected event for an established restaurant. The staff acted as if everyone walked in at one time, without reservations. Unfortunately, when the staff acts anxious and on edge, the dining experience will feel that way also.
Elliott's on Linden is our favorite restaurant in the Pinehurst area. The food and ambiance will never disappoint.
The table was small for six adults. It was weird that in an empty restaurant we were squashed at a small table, we really needed more space.
