Took my 13 year old daughter out - never been there before- saw the restaurant featured in an article about nee UWS great eats- and they were right!
Great food, great vibe, great service!
Restaurant is always hospitable and caters to the needs of the party I’m with. First time I went we had a reservation for two inside and they could tell we were nervous about indoor dining so they put us right near the open door. Second time I had a baby and stroller and they helped pick an outdoor table where everything fit nicely and helped us with a high chair when the baby was being finicky.
Really great dinner! It was super yummy food and good service. Even like the drinks too:) went on a triple date with friends and got a cozy circle table for the 6 of us next to the winery. Recommend this spot a lot.
Honestly the food quality is not great. It’s overpriced but even if the food was cheaper it still wouldn’t be worth it. Great service though. This is the third review I’ve ever written bc I wanted to highlight how terrible the food was.
The only dish that was good was the beet salad. The appetizers were not very good, and the overpriced fish dishes were mediocre at best.
This restaurant is lovely and has incredible amount of space upstairs downstairs and outdoors. Geek salad was a big hit, and so was the grilled fish. Wine selection is mostly Greek, and if you are not too savvy on those wines the waiters are pretty helpful. All in all a very pleasant experience. Recommended.
Great place. Amazing service. Good for kids but also for date night.
This is a really nice place with great food and ambience.
The restaurant is very expensive but the food is average! I would not eat there again!
Freshest fish around starters and cocktails. Great and always consistent .Helpful gracious team from start to finish greetings at the door and Beyond . Always special night !
Excellent in every way! Only caveat is the Greek wine is on the expensive side.
Outdoor dining setup is very good. Came for brunch, adhered to the 90 minute time limit, would definitely go back.
First courses were excellent
Main courses were ok
Love love love elea - I cannot say enough good things about the food, ambiance and impeccable service. Always have such a wonderful evening and cannot wait to go back!
Amazing service. Waitstaff recognized us from
Before. Super friendly
Was nice to see a friend for dinner. Waitress friendly, food great.
We had a lovely dinner in the early evening on Sunday. Tables were widely spaced and we felt very safe. The food was very good. And I enjoyed a glass of Xinomavro (the Barolo of Greece). They brought my wife a surprise gratis dessert with sparkler for her birthday. It was sweet of them. This was the last restaurant we chose to eat at prior to Covid and the first one we ate at after getting vaccinated. It is a gem for the Upper West Side.
First restaurant meal after a year of quarantine. Excellent experience.
Good food and nice locale. Only minor 'quibble', the prices are a bit too high. Could be 10-20% cheaper. Food is good but not exceptional.
The food and the service were amazing! Would 100% recommend and will go back.
The food, staff, and service were superb! It was my first time to the restaurant and I will now be a regular!
Excellent food and service. There were five of us in my party. We tasted a few things on the menu and all were fantastic. We’ll be back.
Excellent service, food, and overall experience. Very good outdoor dining setup.
Great lamb chops and decent vibe
Huge indoor seating makes spacing out easy. Food never disappoints.
Amazing food, fantastic service, beautiful ambiance and an all around great time! Would go back in a heartbeat!
Loved the food. Amazing.
Great food, great selection, great drinks and advice, excellent service. I’m glad we have a superb Greek restaurant in the neighborhood
Excellent meal, ambience, delicious food. Very busy, service was a bit slower than expected - look forward to our next visit!
Amazing fresh healthy! ❤️
The team at Elea has mastered the outdoor dining experience. The seating, although tight, is separated with plastic barriers and is open with fresh air circulating. The heaters are very effective and they have made a real effort to make the surroundings cheerful and attractive. Service during this hybrid indoor/outdoor situation has not missed a beat and the food is as good as ever. The appetetizers and spreads in particular are standout.
Pleasantly surprised by live music but would have preferred Greek music to Jazz. All in all it was a perfect meal.
My partner and I came here for Valentines day. Hostess', bussers, and server were friendly, extremely competent and very attentive without being overly attentive. Courses were brought out at appropriate times. Food was delicious. Intimate atmosphere.
Had a great time here for Valentines Day. Tables were nicely spaced. Food was super good and it’s a nice restaurant. First time here and will be back again.
Excellent during these difficult times.
We sat outside and the freezing cold and the staff was so accommodating! The food is delicious, light and a great mix-up!
Solid. Service here is much improved and in point now. The host took the time to check on our meal multiple times. Food excellent as usual.
Great staff and excellent food ! It’s a tad expensive but the food is great !
