We really enjoyed brunch. The service was on point and brunch options were great and having a smaller menu was perfect and everything paired well. Definitely will be back . Valet is always a plus downtown

Always very good and seldom have complaints. However, we ordered the scallops appetizer and it was served over a bed of canned yellow corn, and I would expect much more from this restaurant.

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.

My coworker and I happened to dine on the first night of their new dinner menu. The staff was still getting used to all the changes and there is a remodel still in progress, but wow, the kitchen nailed it! Our favorite dish was the goat cheese agnolotti loaded with shaved black truffles and sweet snap peas! The grilled tuna entree with the spicy peanut stew is a dish I will crave. I'm looking forward to returning to try the rest of the menu and see the finished space. DON'T SKIP DESSERT! The fried apple pie with creme fraiche ice cream and the banana profiteroles are incredible!

Dinner at Elevage/Epicurean was uninspired to amateur. First the staff. From the kids outside taking cars to the receptionist and our waiter Jorge, all were top notch. But, my wife and I are here for food and a wonderful dining experience. The web site leads one to think upscale, chic. The room we ate in could have been a Wendy’s. The table bases were so large our feet could not fit easily under the table. The wine pours were short. Two small glasses of Pine Ridge, $36.00. The steak tartar starter was tasteless except for the foil gras toast. The Epicurean salad was over dressed and soggy. The Steak Frite was was a mess. The meat was tender and properly cooked, but sitting in too much sauce and the plug of compound butter of blue cheese was so cold it did not melt. The Frites were soggy not crisp and if fried in duck fat as advertised it added no flavor. The Grouper was served cold in the center. Jorge returned it to the kitchen and a new dish was prepared. This time perfectly cooked. The sauce was absolutely delicious as was the whole dish. Jorge comped us a dessert.

The food was very good. However, our dinner was marred by the waiter who hovered around us trying to make us leave. He kept rushing us and asking us if were done. It made our experience a bit less fantastic than it would have been without him. The food, however, was excellent. We will go back again and ask for a different server this time.

Dining experience well below expectations. Construction area to walk though to dining. No advance hotel notice. Appetizers came out cold after a 40 minute wait. Meal arrived at the 90 minute mark. Poor reflection on restaurant manager and the Epicurean Hotel property.

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.

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!

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.
