I didn’t realize how much I liked Greek food and wines until I ate at this restaurant! And lucky us that it is right around the corner. Great service and pleasant environment.
Love it here!!
The lamb chops were excellent as always. However, the French fries, which are usually very good were soft and Luke warm. That was disappointing.
The food at Elea has majorly improved as has the service. Staff came by several times to see how we were. A pleasure to have a quality good restaurant in our neighborhood.
With maybe a couple more menu options for a couple of dollars less per item this would be great. But there are great options, and always nice staff. So I keep going back!
I like this testaurant very much and have been twice recently. Service very slow the second time.
Love this place! Always consistently great quality food and ambience. Steve T is the man.
Lovely service by polite and omnipresent wait staff. Food really good. Fresh, nicely presented. A neighborhood Jewell.
Great food and service!
This place has the best food, service and ambiance.
We've had better experiences and food at this restaurant in the past. Maybe this was an "off" night? Octopus as chewy as old shoes. Lamb chops just okay. Very packed in crowded - too much so. Popular place as not too many "upscale" restaurants in this neighborhood. Will wait awhile before we go back.
Fabulous friendly and professional service. Attentive, accommodating manager. And as always, consistently best dishes.
Food was AMAZING. One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Highly recommend the chicken souvlaki which was so tender and seasoned perfectly (still talking about it with my friends). Elea chips and the Skordalia spread were delish! Ambience was perfect, so much seating indoor and out. Can’t wait to go back!
Great neighborhood Mediterranean. Good service. Food consistently yummy. Staff is always nice and accommodating
Lovely meal, large portions. Hospitable staff. I'll surely be back!
They went the extra mile to make my friend’s birthday special. Thank you.
Enjoyed our meal very much. We didn’t like being in the main dining room, which was downstairs and had no windows. The upstairs room is far more appealing.
Four old friends getting together for a very good meal in an upscale venue. Best Greek food on UWS. A bit pricey but worth it.
My fav local restaurant at the moment - exquisite food - fresh and delicious and different. Love the courgette fries, the calamari, the octopus, the lamb chops, all the fish and the spicy margaritas! Yum!!
Love Elea. Doesn’t get any better. Food, service, vibe completes the evening
Great wait service and amazing truffle fries
Long waits and overcooked food
Great food. Always consistent
The food was delicious. Very good service and atmosphere. We will certainly return to this restaurant!
Lovely evening dining outdoors with great food! Only downside is that they’ve jammed WAY too many tables in the outdoor space. Really ruins the vibe and makes it tough to eat comfortably (can’t even push chair back at all).
Always happy at Eléa
Though a little pricey, the food is absolutely delicious and the staff is friendly and accommodating.
Delicious food and great service
I seem to keep finding myself here lately, I just cant stay away! Everything is delicious and I love the outdoor dining options. See you soon!
Excellent service for a large party of 7
I love the food at Elea. You can lways count on the horiatiki salad being fresh and delicious. Tzaziki is out of this world as well. It's a great place to have a small celebration or just a nice dinner with your friend or a spouse. I miss the familiar faces since their staff seems to have changed a lot but I guess that's what's going on everywhere nowadays.
They do get a crowd because the food is reliable and delicious! They have a lot of outdoor seating and are a bit understaffed.
We waited quite some time for someone to take our drink order. The we asked for a few minutes to enjoy them and our dishes were brought all at once in short order. But I do love this place!
We love this place. The food here is delicious!
Interesting, creative menu. Very friendly service Great choice
Wonderful experience. Perfect service. Very comfortable environment. Delicious food and drinks. We will be back soon
We had a great meal at Elea and will make it a point to go back when we’re in NYC again. The food and drinks were was excellent - probably the best lamb chops I’ve had. The inside seating is cozier than the pictures make it seem, in a good way (not so intensely bright). My partner has to eat gluten free and the waitstaff was very helpful in recommending dishes.
Food delicious. Service great. Loud for brunch on Saturday.
Very yummy and fresh! The only thing... it’s expensive when I see the appetizer and entree portions. Maybe just around $3 less could be very great for the quality/price. Waiter was super nice! We will be back.
Service was incredibly slow, given that the restaurant was not that busy. Food was delicious.
A beautiful restaurant with great food and service!
