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.
Service was incredibly slow, given that the restaurant was not that busy. Food was delicious.
A beautiful restaurant with great food and service!
We were very pleased with our entire experience at Elea. We felt welcomed and cared for.
Great cauliflower and fish
Authentic Greek cuisine served in a very friendly atmosphere.
excellent as always. Horiatiki Salad, Grilled Octopus, Elea Chips, Lamp Chops, Lavraki
The food was very good, high quality, and well prepared. Delicious. Our servers were professional, yet quite hurried. The music was abysmal! Horrible! It was like a cheap nightclub. If you look at the UWS clients you serve, none of them are looking for that type of music, and especially not at 5:45 when we ate. Please consider playing different music that is less frenetic, less trendy. It cheapened the whole vibe and made the scene look amateur. Take a look at your patrons and adapt.
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!
