Our entree’s were cooked to perfection, service was flawless and the ambiance of the restaurant is unlike any of the other restaurants in the area. We will definitely be returning for another occasion.

Am not thrilled with the recent changes made at Elevage. I thought it was much better previously. Very limited food menu.
Try again, please!

Great service, food, and value. We went for happy hour and love their unique menu. Some of their blog and online information should be updated, which almost stopped us from coming in. Glad we did.

Beautiful restaurant inside of the Epiqurean Hotel. Open, modern, restaurant with very friendly staff. The food was excellent, with the memorable filet mignon with truffle vinaigrette.

I had red fish, was delicious! Others had filet and ribeyes. Steaks were not great cuts, aside from one of them being way over cooked. They did promptly prep a new steak which was appreciated.
I ordered a salad, it never arrived.
Our sides (collard greens, roasted potatoes, ciabatta bread) were very yummy and enough to share with table of 4.
We order three desserts, they were all good with great presentation but nothing stood out as phenomenal. I’m a foodie.
At the end of the night, we ended up with three other drinks from another table on our tab. Good thing we check our tabs.
Service was friendly but I expect more attention at a place and price point as Elevage.

The oyster mushrooms are to die for! I feel like they have become a little more casual, which is upsetting because I associate Élevage and the Epicurean with a more luxurious ambiance. Despite that, everything was wonderful, and I can't wait to visit again.

Food was delicious! Some of the best truffle fries I’ve ever had. The service was excellent and our waitress suggested a lot of good things, as this was our first time here. Drink menu kind of limited as far as cocktail selection goes. Would definitely come back!

Started with the bronzed scallops, melted in your mouth. We continued with the tomato soup, beautifully crafted and the best tomato soup I’ve had to date. The shrimp and grits had so much flavor and loaded with huge shrimp. My wife had the redfish with lump crab and loved it. Dessert left us wanting more but didn’t take away too much from our experience. The wait staff and service as a whole was amazing. Kathy was fun, welcoming, and very knowledgeable. All in all, Elevage does great justice to the Epicurean.

Awesome sitting outside on Howard Avenue watching the people and traffic go by. We brought our dog again, and had a phenomenal time. The redfish was perfect!! The pitted pork on the southern style meat platter was sinful and rich, with fresh warm corn bread to boot. The drinks were generous pours this time as well. The service was great as usual, with a water bowl for the pup. Too stuffed for dessert though, maybe next time. We are moving away from the area and will miss being able to walk to such a great neighborhood place.

We had a nice, young lady that waited on us. She was attentive from afar - not responsive, but brought what we needed when asked.

The food was delicious! The Homage to Berns sandwich is flavorful and hearty.

this was the 2nd time at this restaurant. it was for a birthday celebration. sadly it was disappointing. our main meals were not up to our satisfaction. My order had to go back to the kitchen. Another guest had ordered asparagus and didn't receive it with his filet. the filets we were told were from Burns and if that's true they were very sad. I'm not sure I would go back. I might try just going to the bar.

Our Server was Natalie and she was outstanding! She was very professional, knowledgeable about the entire menu and prompt with requests. After the disappointing experience we had with the Host at Bern's across the street, Elevage was a welcomed change! They were smiling, upbeat and extremely service oriented. The food was excellent as well. Every recommendation that Natalie suggested was wonderful! The Elevage manager even called over and reserved us seating in the Dessert Room at Bern's. I had two out of town guests and was so happy they finally received the experience that I had been telling them about. Thank you Elevage and Natalie!

Our waitress was very pleasant. The drinks were not good, and I thought it was a full bar- I sat thought because they were unable to make drinks outside of the menu. The food wasn’t too bad, I ordered a steak- but for the price I paid I did not find it to be worth the bill.

We loved the food, and our server was very efficient and friendly.
However, there was some sort of political event going on in the bar - a scant few feet from our table.
The noise level was very high, and even when the event was over, a lot of people remained loudly in the bar.
As we were meeting with friends to "catch up", this definitely detracted from our experience.
If recommending it to a friend, I would tell them to make sure of what was going on at the restaurant before I reserved.

Brunch was mediocre. Food was not hot so I sent it back and got a second plate with warm food. It’s hard to eat warm and not hot eggs Benedict. Also eggs were more soft boiled than poached, blackened pork belly was undercooked and food under seasoned. we eat at Élevage frequently but this was a disappointing trip. Coffee was very good.

The food was very basic for the price. I got the Ribeye and there was not much flavor. The ciabatta and goat butter was very good though. I also got the pear Daiquiri and it was the best part of the meal. One of the best drinks I’ve ever had actually.

Interesting decor especially the entrance to the exhibition cooking hall. The restaurant is a little noisy. For Valentines Day they served a tasting menu with wine pairings that was not announced on their web site. The meal was under whelming and the wine pours for the pairing were very small. Redfish with red wine sauce was overpowering, the Tasso duck while flavorful had barely an once of the smoked duck breast. Desserts were nothing special. All of my dates dishes except dessert had an overpowering citrus flavor. Not sure if anyone in the kitchen was tasting the food.
Disappointing evening!!
