The server was excellent. She made great recommendations, and answered all of our questions without hesitation. The octopus appetizer was top three octopus dishes I’ve ever had. The same goes for duck and Tilefish entrées!

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.

Wonderful food !! Everything ordered was delicious (including my daughters chicken fingers ...?!!!). The only thing I would change , is more salad/leaner healthier options for the health conscious.
Other than that - FABULOUS!!

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.

Love the decor. The chicken and waffles brunch dish is delicious! Service was a little spotty, especially as the restaurant became more crowded.

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.

Very very noisy, bar just outside of eating area football game was on and fans were nuts. Had to leave having a relaxing drink to be seated early. Food was ok but plating way too busy.

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.

The atmosphere was absolutely perfect for a relaxed date night. The service was on point and the server’s attitude made the experience better. The attention to detail absolutely pushed it over the edge. Absolutely perfect.

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!

Our steaks were just a bit overdone. Mine was Med rare but was really a bit more cooked than I like. The meat was still tasty and seasoned well.
However, the escargot was to die for. Best I have ever had anywhere. The garlic bread that was with it disappeared! And we even had an extra basket of it. The wine list for glasses only is a bit limited but adequate. Loved our waiter and liked the ambiance very much. We’ll return.

The evening was fine but I expected more. Service in the bar was slow and service at the table transactional. When we booked, I noted it was our anniversary and every other year I had done that through Open Table, we at least had it acknowledged, nothing here. The food was good although not set apart in my mind. Overall a bit flat experience.

The food and service were great but the noise from a table of “adults” was unruly and drew the ire from the other tables throughout the floor. I don’t recall cackling as a step of wine tasting. Congrats you achieved “look at me status”. Nobody addressed if on the staff but they were clearly aware as several patrons asked to move farther away. Loud entitled guests with complete disregard for the anyone else’s dining experience can have a lasting impression on sustainable excellence. The selfie squad finally left but it didn’t appear due to the well overdue request from leadership. Apart from that, we enjoyed the libations and the meal. Just would be nice for management to be more engaged on managing the atmosphere as well.

It was my 2nd anniversary to celebrate here at the Élevage with my sweets. Booked the reservation literally while on the way on Selmons for 12pm. Got there too fast, sat at the bar and drank sum up. Got our table quick thereafter. Chicken and Waffles is what I got, which was a bit too dry (waffle) legit like bread. Tastes delicious, like a Spanish pastry almost. Come hungry and you will leave happy
😁😁 The theme is beautiful as it blends in with the hotel. Must go!
