Food was good not great. Service was good. Nice place to sit.But my real issue that they include a “convenience charge” on credit card of 4% Without letting me know first. I will not be going back to this restaurant. In addition, I will call restaurants prior to going to see if they also apply this charge.
Very friendly staff and delicious food. Definitely going back!!
Great food, only surpassed by the service. Great time by all
The Greek salad was delicious as was my husband’s roast chicken and potatoes. The hummus was bland and the shrimp dish I ordered was overcooked.
We had a great time and fun atmosphere!! All the food was great and the dish to split for two was more than enough!
This is one of my favorite restaurants not only in Brooklyn but all of NYC. The food and the service are always great! You won't be disappointed!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Brooklyn--- well, really the entire city! Petros and his staff are always professional and accommodating. The food is excellent and the selection of Greek wines is awesome! I have eaten here numerous times and have had a wonderful experience each time. Frankly, there is nothing I can think of that would have made any of my experiences better. Excellent atmosphere! Excellent Service! And Excellent food!
We visited ELA Taverna after being recommended by a friend. It was excellent and I would not hesitate to pass on the recommendation. The hosts were extremely friendly and the wait staff (Costas) went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable, and offered us excellent food choice suggestions. The food was delicious, the atmosphere buzzing and the decor great! A lovely experience, well worth the visit!
Food is overpriced. There is better Greek food that is cheaper elsewhere. Service was okay but we were the only people dining at the time and we still had to wave/ signal the waiter to come over. I struggle to imagine what the place would be like full.
Food was really good and fish portions were huge! Service was a little slow but overall a good experience with a big group
The food was as advertised, with some dishes being even better. They're pretty light on the seasoning, which is par the course. They were out of quite a few of their drink options, though, which certainly impacted the experience.
Great service. Waiter recommendations were spot on. Noise level went way up as the restaurant filled up. Only critique is the size of the octopus appetizer. Although yummy, small for the price.
The service was amazing. My mom has a cast on her leg and staff went out of their way to make sure she was comfy,and able to get around the restaurant.The food was yummy and portions were great.They surprised us with some yummy Greek desserts as well. Get the grilled shrimp with marinara!!Sadly,my father passed away this same night. I'm so grateful to the staff for providing me with a moment of happiness.
Was our first time in ELA.
Food was amazing, and really great service.
It was beyond our expectations!
We will surely come back.
Haven’t been here since last year, food was better before.. maybe was just an off night. Gracious service and homey atmosphere. Bread is always excellent
Nice Greek salad, good taramasalata, lamb chips were tasty. Els fries far to oily. .
Overpriced food and mediocre experience. Place could be cleaner. Staff was friendly but not very adept at managing service. Food was long delayed and all we were offered was a boring baklava. Will skip next time unless management turns place around.
Great time. Staff took excellent care of us and the food was great. I recommend going family style as it was a great way to taste a lot of different dishes.
It was a nice meal, but for the price it's not what I expected. The folks there are lovely. Our waitress was very sweet. The glassware for wine was silly.
Very good AUTHENTIC Greek food. It felt like I was home in my parents house. Octopus was great, ELA french fries were good, excellent feta cheese, tasty meat, great wine. Only one recommendation -- the Moussaka had too much cinnamon! Everything else was ON POINT!
Food was so delicious and fresh! Service was spot on. Can’t wait to return!!
Food was very good. They need better coffee and must get Half & Half.
Amazing Greek restaurant! Its quality food, the traditional tastes, the good music, its welcoming staff and the overall ambiance make you feel as if you are indeed in a taverna in Greece. I would certainly recommend the place!
Great food, still waiting on the alcohol license
The service was weird and unattentive.
Food was average. My fish was buttery and just not that great. For $30 in brooklyn I would have expected more. It was so loud and half full. We couldn't hear each other talk, not sure why it was so loud.
The manager was very nice and accommodating for our adjusted group size.
If you have a large group, this place is very accomdating, so wouldn't hesitate to go back with a group.
I love this place. The back room is beautiful and the food is always excellent.
Great Greek food. Nice staff that makes you feel comfortable. You don’t have to be Greek because all the food is explained so no guessing.
Decent food but not worth a second trip. Have had better Greek food in Astoria. Wine in a small juice glass for 15.00 also not acceptable. Will not return
ELA Taverna was amazing! They were so inviting, attentive, and appreciative of our business. We felt welcomed and had a great evening. The food was fantastic and everything came as ordered without any concerns or issues. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to a friend and visit again myself if I ever return to the area.
Food was so good and portions were big! Very authentic and the decor is so cute. Staff was very nice.
Cool restaurant. Service was fantastic. Food was a mixed bag for me. I had steamed vegetables and avgolemono chicken soup which were delicious, but the swordfish I got for the main course was pretty average. My wife liked everything she ordered though. Very nice chill environment, good place to have a dinner conversation
Food quality was average. Unusual to have French fries served with Greek food, rather than rice pilaf. Better to have the option of fries or rice. Wait staff is very friendly, but inexperienced. They serve coffee but neglect to provide spoons. Prices are rather high, relative to food quality and service. No plan to hurry back.
Great service, food and value ! The staff was very accommodating for our 10-guest party and the food was delicious!
Excellent food & interesting wine list. Server was very knowledgeable about Greek wine and provided good recommendations about food & wine.
Everything was delicious! We had a traditional Greek salad, the shrimp appetizer, and the chicken with Greek herbs entree. Everything was so good - would highly recommend! The menu on OpenTable is not the full menu, check their website!
Great affordable option for a large party. We had a great time.
Fun time with great service and authentic Greek food.
Our party was seated promptly at our reservation time but then waited for 40 minutes before menus were brought and and almost an hour before our drink order was taken. Food came almost an hour later and was served on plastic plates and the portion size comically bad for the price. As a resident of the area this is our second time trying this tourist trap and sadly we will not be back. If we desire Greek again we’ll just go to Queens.
Great food, lovely atmosphere, good value!
