The entire experience was as good as it gets for a restaurant.

Greeted immediately by the friendly host. Took us to our table promptly.

Specialty bar drinks were unbelievable. Try the Mountain Slide.

Mozzarella ball appetizer was delicious. Served with crostini.

Sea Bass was the best I have ever had in my 55 years. It was a whole fish.

Ribeye was cooked to perfect temperature.

My best regards to the chef/owner, host, bartender, and wait staff.

We will be back for another perfect dinner!

Highly recommended!!!

We eat here frequently and always bring out of town guests. The food is always perfect and the service terrific. We're from Birmingham and do not lack for superb dining and I would put Elevation easily in my top 3 places to eat.

We had excellent service. It was a busy night and our food took over an hour to arrive, but we enjoyed visiting, appetizers and drinks. The food was amazing and we loved that the menu items were purchased from local farm to table venders. We will definitely return when we visit Mentone again. Thank you to the chef for making our dining experience pleasant.

4 of us (family) had reservations but accidentally made for 2. You were able to change it and very kindly be seated at once. Our food was delicious to us all. We will recommend to friends and family and would like to come back ourselves. Thank you !

The food was out of this world! Everything is so fresh and cooked to perfection. The crab cakes were freshly made and were delicious! You could taste the freshness in the fish ((I had the grouper). The wait staff and chef were so attentive to us without hovering. Will go back again!

Arrived for dinner here there was only one other table occupied. There was only a select few items on the menu. We were told upon seating They were out of one of the main items. One member of our party asked for grilled chicken to be added to her salad, and the waitress came back and told her it would be $19 more dollars to add the only piece of chicken they had left to her salad and that price would be on top of the $7 for the salad. $26 for a grilled chicken salad is outrageous. Also a 12 oz NY strip was priced at $60. I don’t know how in the VERY small town of Mentone this place remains in business. We ended up leaving and driving 30 minutes into a different town and had a wonderful dinner and had NY Strip there for $38.

We had an excellent meal at Elevation. The chef came out to speak to everyone which was nice. There is lots of room between tables due to Covid so we felt protected.

Excellent Shrimp & Grits served to me. My wife had a delicious grilled pork chop. The peach bread pudding ala mode was the creme della creme of the evening. We sampled the amazing squash soup. Very good simple salad comes with the entree.

Food was excellent. Halibut was so clean and fresh. Prepared simply with good flavor. Even the bread was very good. It was grilled so it had a smoked flavor. Service was good, but a little slow. It went by fast because we enjoyed ourselves and the food
