    entrees took almost an hour and then were grossly over cooked. everything was either too bland or had very strange seasoning — incoherent flavor palates. honestly i do not recommend. oh, and it’s in a strip mall.. so there’s that. $120 for two people w an entree and appetizer each. if the food was better that wouldn’t be an issue, but it wasn’t worth the money. this is a place you can skip.

    We had a great experience here. Highlights were the beet salad, halibut, and Swedish meatball sliders. I would not order the shrimp toast again as it was soggy and salty.

    It was our first time eating at Eldr+Rime. The restaurant is attached to a hotel. The atmosphere was contemporary. It felt like it could be a restaurant in the middle of a large city. We ordered the potato-spelt appetizer. It was delicious and a wonderful start to the meal. Our table ordered 3 entries: mushroom ragu, scallops, and fish and chips. All three had a separate taste from each other and yet they all had great flavor. We really enjoyed our meal at Eldr+Rime and look forward to returning. Its a great place to enjoy a drink at the relaxed and very cool bar or to go for a meal.

    Overpriced; tiny, poorly balanced and burnt portions ruined the experience; great service, nice ambiance. My 3 star rating is overly generous. Might return for a cocktail on the nice patio but not much more.

    We really enjoyed the cocktails and oysters to start our meal. Our server was very friendly and well trained. We had the salmon, pork and gemelli pasta with shrimp. The food came out quickly and was delicious. Flavors came through as described in the menu. The salmon had a nice crisp outside and done perfect on the inside. The pork was a large serving with enough to take home!

    Eldr+Rime sets itself apart with its great ambience. It is easy to have a fun conversation without bothering anyone because you aren't really near anyone. The setting is gorgeous. The "smoking" Old Fashions are incredible and worth it. Our table had the Schnitzel, Halibut, and Scallops - all were delicious. And our server was great!

    Loved everything about this place! The interior and patio design is really beautiful, clean and modern but also has a comfortable feel. The cocktails were great, food was amazing as we all tried a variety of items and the service was wonderful. Our server was fantastic, very attentive and helpful. Really helped to make for a great night out for 4 tired and overworked parents!

    Painfully average, across the board, and expensive. My pork schnitzel was over-cooked, dry and quite bland. The side of “confit potatoes” was so salty I could not eat them. Very loud. Very good service. Far over-priced.

    Good food. Certainly a little different, but still familiar. The food was good, but not as good as I was expecting. I’d say it’s typical Tosa, pretty, expensive, and over hyped. But all in all it was good enough. No complaints, but nothing remarkable either. It’ll make a good option for those times when you want a bit more upscale but don’t want to go downtown, 3rd ward or Bay View. It made a good date night.

    Ambiance was amazing, very cool and modern. Space seemed clean and inviting. Service was good but was not impressed with servers wearing jeans, thought it was a fancier place. Our waiter seemed ill/sick which was off-putting. The food was NOT good. My bf got the shrimp toast- the bread was tasteless as well as the prawns and the brown sauce all over it looked unappetizing. I had the salmon 3 ways; while it was a beautiful presentation I really only ate one of the 3 ways (cold smoked); the other two were not well seasoned. The rye bread on which to eat the salmon was like cardboard. Also had the venison tartare which was barely edible. The waffle pieces to eat the venison were good. Our drinks were good. Overall I wouldn’t eat here again but the place has a great ambiance, good for a cocktail party but not for dining.

    We stayed in the hotel and wanted to try the restaurant because the venue looked ultra modern and the menu sounded great. The overall experience was so/so and we probably wouldn’t go back. The service was very slow, it took around 20 minutes for our waiter to return with our drinks. It was not very busy at all. I ordered a mocktail, it was a waste of $8 and should have just ordered a Diet Coke. My husbands drink was ok. The waiter wasn’t super knowledgeable on the menu items. My fish and chips were actually pretty incredible, but my husbands Mushroom Orzo dish was kinda lame and bland, it really needed more flavor. We ordered the chocolate cake for dessert and it tasted stale, it was also really plain. We were impressed with the decor, but the rest of the experience was rather unimpressive.

    This spot could be for a casual dinner or a special occasion. The menu selection was fantastic and our food was delicious. We chose the salmon with roasted mushrooms as well as the Halibut with roasted asparagus. We felt full as the portions were perfect. I have a dairy allergy and our server made sure I was accommodated.

    Have eaten here three times. Fish entrees here are great! The pork was well cooked but very under seasoned, and the skirt steak impossible to chew. Ate outdoors on a lovely summer evening and so the ambience made up for the less than optimal meal. Service very good. Should up their game on non alcoholic drinks. Am glad to pay the price for a good one but mine was flavorless and mostly ice.

    Went to dinner on a week night. Arrived early for reservation and was accommodated immediately. Very nice setting, aesthetically. Noise level was moderately loud but not problematic for conversation. Menu offerings were nice and the good we ate was very good. Our issues relate to the Seafood Royal appetizer. From their menu, the appetizer is described as"served chilled, snow crab claws, shrimp, lobster, oysters, New Zealand mussels, smoked tomato cocktail sauce, beet mignonette." Note that for the snow crab claws, oysters, and mussels each specifically end in the letter S, indicating they are plural in number. Unfortunately, you receive one piece of each. The lack of menu accuracy coupled with the fact that the price of this appetizer exceeds the majority of the items on the menu lead this to be poor value at best. Suffice it to say this ruined the experience.

    The food was very good (maybe a tad too much salt in places but overall excellent flavors and interesting flavors). Highly recommend the scallops and the confit potatoes. The drinks were lovely too. The atmosphere is spectacular - the smoky, woodsy aroma inside and birch tree decor just made the whole place feel like an escape from the world. I would definitely go back, but the prices are a little high, so it’ll be for special occasions only.

    A bit less formal than I had expected. The servers were wearing jeans. This is a pro or con, depending on your own expectations. I went thinking it was going to be a little more formal. Ambiance is really nice; a modern, uncluttered look/feel vibe. The food was fine to very good. My partner had a steak that he really liked. I did the scallops for my entrée. They were very good. If I go back I would consider ordering them again. Apps and sides were good. I guess I just went thinking I was going to have an extraordinary dining experience and it just never materialized. We did order a creme brule for dessert. It was way overcooked so that the custard part was tasteless and sort of clumpy, although the topping was terrific. Cracked nicely when I "attacked" it. There is a really nice outdoor area that I'd like to try for cocktails and apps. Would I go again? Possibly for a happy hour experience. Other places I'd choose for dinner first I think.

    Food was ok but way overpriced for what we got. Service was slow. Very noisy too so it was hard to have a conversation. When the manager is also bartending you would guess that they are short staffed. I would be ok with that except that it took 20 minutes for us to pay our bill and have manager enter our gift card.
