Élevage features a menu so well-crafted it recalls the past but lives fully in the present. Located in the food-focused Epicurean Hotel and developed out of Bern's Steak House traditions, we continue to do things differently with great pride and passion. Using the freshest, premium ingredients and preparing them with modern cooking techniques, two-time James Beard Semi-Finalist Chef Chad Johnson and Chef de Cuisine Jonathan Atanacio's culinary passions are translated into the nostalgia of your childhood with a signature twist. The concept of “Nostalgia meets Nouveau” is embodied in every element; down to the décor of reclaimed wood and industrial accents.
Join us for a hand-crafted beverage experience at Élevage Bar and EDGE Social Drinkery. Our world class wine list is curated from the Bern's family, and our craft beer selection is locally inspired. We invite you to Awaken Appetites Unknown!

I've eaten dinner and breakfast here a handful of times. Usually I would give the overall experience (food, service, ambiance, etc.) a B+ or A, which justifies the prices. However, my last time there on an early Saturday evening was different. Starting with the valet, we literally couldn't tell if he was actually working due to the nonchalant attitude and lack of any urgency. Once inside, we were placed at a really small table, although the place was literally 95% empty. We ended up moving to a bigger table 10mins later. Finally, when the food arrived, it was about 1 solid grade lower in quality than expected (my friend had to ask for a new entree, since his was over cooked). He's pretty tolerable, so even that proved to me I wasn't being overly critical. In all honesty, this recent visit was an overall C, but priced as an A. I was literally thinking there must of been a recent change of leadership to cause all of this. Will I be back? Probably. Will I make it a point to be? Doubtful. Good luck.

Since our last visit over a year ago, the menu appears to have a lot fewer options. But what we had was v good. We had the filet-mignon that was prepared very nicely and my wife had the duck, which she enjoyed.

The noise leave was extremely loud. The seating area where we were sitting was near the bar but appeared to be behind a wall. I didn't realize the wall was open out to the bar. Seemed like more of a college crowd vs adults enjoying themselves. Been there before and it was nice prior but seems like it's open to loud groups of people. Not for me, we probably won't go back.

The waiter over sold me expensive red wine. It was not worth the cost of $ 18 per glass.

He did not tell me the cost before recommending it.

We mostly enjoyed the food, however menu was limited and seemed curated by Top Chef contestants. DO NOT RECOMMEND for anyone with food intolerances or dietary restrictions (I.e. GF, Vegan, Keto, shellfish allergy), as not enough choices. Cocktails were well designed, thoughtfully priced and tasty. Would definitely go again for cocktails and recommend to foodie friends (only).

We specifically attended their benefit for the Carolinas for which all proceeds were donated to Hurricane Florence relief. The three course prix fixe menu was fantastic. A seemingly easy task for a restaurant that specializes in Southern cuisine with French technique. Fabulous food, atmosphere, service and an inspiring cause!

Dined at Epicurean with a group of 6 people for my birthday dinner. The meal, wine and service were wonderful overall, but the desserts we ordered disappointing and the choices were not exciting. The scallop appetizer and pork belly were delicious and my rabbit entree was extremely flavorful. I guess 7 pm is early because the restaurant wasn't very busy, but by 8 pm it began to fill up. The rooftop bar was lively and had lots of seating. Would definitely recommend for date night, girls night or business dinner.

Elevate exceeded my expectations. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The restaurant elevated shrimp and grits, which one finds on numerous menus, to new level with tender jumbo shrimp that yielded to a fork and lemon scented grits. Our waiter recommended the agnolotti, stuffed with goat cheese and sweet potato and topped with a rich sauce replete with bits of tasso ham, for which my companion and I were very grateful! We look forward to returning in the future.
