    Scallops were excelent, Salmon didn't seem like either it was the best fish or maybe the freshest, seemed a little mushy. Waitress was excellent and quick to accomodate, though she did not ask about our food experience. We didn't notice at first there was a lack of sides to choose and none were offered when we ordered our entree. My cocktail could have been mixed with more care.

    I use to come often but i honestly havent been here for about 2 yrs. Now that Chef John is back though ill be coming more often. The food was excellent as i remembered it to be. It took a little longer to get mains but given the food was on point that made up for it.

    This was our most disappointing meal of the year. We went on Thanksgiving, as this was the one place I called who said they'd still serve the regularly menu in addition to the Thanksgiving menu. Whoever I spoke to was wrong on that, which was disappointing. Half of our food was cold (it wasn't supposed to be -- cold gravy is pretty much awful), our waiter acted like we were a nuisance (even though we didn't ask for anything out of the ordinary or even send any of the disappointing food back, we just moved on with the meal hoping it would get better). We ordered a second round of overpriced old fashioneds (which never showed up), and the dessert was wiped out by the time we got there. If this is how Thanksgiving is going to run at that restaurant, I'd suggest they think hard before doing it again. I would have let this restaurant slide had it been crowded, however it was not crowded in the slightest. There were 4 to 8 tables sitting empty the entire time we were there. We'll never dine here again.

    It was thanksgiving so busy but not packed. We were seated immediately but left alone for 15 minutes before we caught a waiters eye. Once we got going everything was very good but overall most of the food not hot. Will try again on non-holiday.

    This was one of the more disappointing experiences at Elevage. We were a part of 6, food took an obscenely long time, to then tell us ~40 minutes in they had no pancake batter. Food was "waiting" under the hot plate. I wouldn't have care as much, but tables all around us got food and most of our food was like warm to cold. Definitely not on top of their game this go around. Will probably be a bit before we try again, as there are many other places to try.

    The restaurant is very nice and modern. Our waiter, Frank, was superb. The menu is very eclectic and uses lots of foreign words so it was difficult to understand. We finally chose salmon and it was delicious.

    Great brunch menu. Enjoyed the ease of getting a reservation and the complimentary valet which is a great perk vs fighting for parking in SOHO or Hyde Park and long waits. Crab Benedict, chicken and waffles and the quick bread were favorites with our group!

    Great service. Great wine selection. Appetizers were very good. Menu changed the week before we dined and we were Looking forward to the Redfish dish. No longer on there so we opted for the lamb chops. Underwhelming - primarily fat, and the pairings were not pleasant. Clashed on the palate. Everything else was superb and we’ll go back for sure. Scrap the current lamb chop combo.

    My wife and I had stayed in the hotel (quite nice - not the most soundproof rooms) and late morning we a couple of items off the 'brunch' menu - simple items - pancakes with fruit and a plate of chicken (with a very good hot/spicy honey sauce) and waffles. Pancakes and waffles were quite light not heavy - both plates very good with excellent coffee. A nice morning seated outside. We do want to return for dinner at some point.

    My coworker & I were guests of the hotel. We each had a wonderful steak but nothing more (no sides, appetizers, or dessert) due to business cost restraints. Would have loved to have tried more! Love the ambiance too. Only downside is once our checks were paid, we never saw waiter again, not even to fill water glasses, even though the place was almost empty at the early hour.

    I was pretty disappointed with the sourdough pancakes and brunch burger. I think they sat too long so the bun was soggy which caused the burger to fall apart. The pancakes tasted like buttermilk pancakes, not really unique. There were no raisins as advertised and only two tiny pieces of banana slices. The whipped cream was melted and had slid off the top of the pancakes. Honestly as a server I would have been embarrassed to take these to a table.

    Suggest a sound-deadening curtain or other barrier between bar and restaurant. At times, it was way too loud to even converse in the restaurant.

    For everything I had heard about how great this restaurant was I found it to be a very so-so experience - both with respect to food quality and service. The Salmon entree was VERY bland and the recommended Chocolate dessert was totally overwhelmed with peppercorns and inedible!
