We booked brunch in the morning after a stay at the Epicurean at Elevage and while initially disappointed with the avocado toast (a thinly spread paste of avocado with some slices of tomato and a sliced hard boiled egg), the cheesy grits, fresh fruit and amazing pancakes made up for it. We would definitely stay again and make different meal choices.

Experience at Epicurean was overall very solid. First, there is a very good crowd there on Friday night. When I say good, I mean good vibe and good looking people. Atmosphere was very good. I sat down with a friend and ordered the Tomato Soup. It was tremendous! It came with a few grilled cheese sandwich sticks for dipping. Then I ordered the Lamb shank and the picture speaks for itself. It was outstanding and perfectly prepared. The meat was cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend Elevage.
The only negatives was my friend ordered a Spinach Salad and they came back and told him 10 minutes later they were out of spinach and would romaine lettuce suffice. Also when we ordered sorbet for dessert, it took too long for it to arrive. Ten minutes later, they said they were out of the mango flavor as well, and then gave us the raspberry flavor on the house. Just took too long getting that to us and communicating that for a scoop of sorbet. But it did not spoil the experience. Solid 4 stars.

I would recommend that Elevage close its doors until construction is completed. It was hard to have a converaation with the constant banging and clatter!

We have stayed at the hotel , love the happy hour , have been to a few wine dinners but yesterday was a tad disappointed. Service was fine even though the place was under remodel. The food was good but not special ,presentation was not what we usually see. Maybe a bad day we will return.

We brought 4 fuests from out of town and while 2 entres were very good, the other2 were mediocre. Surprisingly. But worst was the ambience. There was construction and the bar was super loud. (We went to Bern's the following night, but since were early, and the lounge was full, we decided to get some wine at the Epicurian, although we didn't like it. No one spoke to us on the way in, but on the way out, they asked if we'd tried the rooftop bar, which we didn't even know about. It would have been such a better experience!

Each time I go to Élevage they are remodeling during the day. Bite the bullet and work at night.

Our server was wonderful and the food was great! I was disappointed when we first arrived to the restaurant because despite having a reservation, we were told our table would not be ready for 20 minutes. Other than that, it was a great experience. I highly recommend the Burrata- we got it to share as an appetizer. I had the shrimp & grits as my meal, it was full of flavor and a very generous portion. As long as you’re willing to wait, the place is great!

We really enjoyed our dinner and thought our waitress was very personable and attentive. We were not as pleased with the rooftop bar. When we arrived, the music was extremely loud and the lyrics were very profane. I was surprised with the choice of music at such A nice restaurant. We did however enjoy our meal downstairs and thought our waitress was great.

Sometimes I am surprised. Mostly because I judge and make assumptions and typically, but not always, I'm right. In this case I was wrong and it was a great thing. I am used to hotel restaurants being over priced and about average. I assume they always will be purveyors of food that is inoffensively appealing to the broadest swath of humans possible. Elevage was anything but that. The flavors were original and layered appropriately, the offerings were interesting and varied. The service was exceptional. I would say professional is the best word. In preparation, ingredients, quality, and presentation, I was not in any way disappointed, only impressed. If the room did not have the acoustics of New York's Grand Central Station, creating a constant murmur loud enough to force me to almost shout at my company, I would have easily rated 5 stars. Go, eat, enjoy, and then take a break in silence somewhere you can breathe.

Very good food and a cool building in SOHO. Had the deviled eggs, tomato soup, spinach salad, homage to berns, and roasted duck - all of which were cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. Waiter Joel was very nice and a pleasure around the table, we will be back!

Brunch is just ok. Corned beef hash was great but chilaquiles and avocado toast are just a bit too precious. Sometimes simple is better and adding 8 different toppings takes away from the beauty and taste. Also sat outside and in FL, that is blazing hot with no fans or shade. Great location and ambiance.

My boyfriend and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary at Elevage on a Friday night. We had no problems getting a reservation/getting seated right as we arrived. This was our first time at the hotel in general, so we were wowed by all of the decor! Everyone was super friendly including our server, Jennica! She was great all around! We got the truffle mac and cheese as an app, I got the Salmon entree and he got the Homage to Berns Sandwich. We were amazed by it all! The flavors were outstanding. The cocktails we got were on point as well and we were surprised by a little anniversary present at the end! We had such a great time, we will definitely be back!!

this venue had to be the very noisiest restaurant that i have ever frequented . when one has to yell to be understood by your partner, that is noisy!! the food was fair but when one feels the constraints of the discretionary dollar, one must be very selective.

Patrons all around us being paid great attention, but not our table.
My wife and I both had the pancakes very very dry and we were not offered any extra syrup and would have if we saw waiter once in a while . This was our second time here but sadly our last.

We came in for the Father’s Day brunch and had a good experience. We want to come back for a date night since the atmosphere looks like great night time ambiance material. They also had a wine store attached which was really cool. Our service was great. Everyone is super professional and courteous. I’m pretty sure they went the extra mile to get our daughter some crayons and printed off a little picture for her to color. Thank you!!

I was concerned at first by the limited brunch menu. There were three of us on a Saturday at noon. We each ordered something and EVERYTHING was fabulous. We will definitely be going back. The dessert cafe "Chocolate Pi" which is in the same hotel had an array of delicious cakes cookies and teas that were reasonably priced. We live in Clearwater and it was definitely worth the drive.

Expected more than standard hotel restaurant class food, given that this property is supposed to be food-centric. Servers also kept disappearing for unacceptably long period of time, wine was served inappropriately ice ice cold. Atmosphere really nothing to write home about.
