    Great value. Excellent cuisine and presentation. Cacio e pepe (with perfectly-cooked bucatini pasta) and cheeseburger were superb! Nice craft beer selection. Will definitely return.

    If you like farm to table, this is a great place to eat. List of farms the food comes from is right on the menu, and many of the farms are right down the road. I had a steak that was the best I’ve had in a while. My husband had pork chop and they cooked it exactly as he requested. Drinks were above average and servers were very nice and friendly. Not cheap but I never mind paying for good food.

    The farm-to-table approach here means that the food is really fresh and absolutely delicious. I order something different every time because I know the menu is full of winners. This is a delightful restaurant with wonderful staff.

    Picked this spot for dinner as one of our stops on our anniversary trip to Mentone. The food was excellent. We sat outside where it was quiet and comfortable. We will certainly be back again next time we visit Mentone.

    Make a reservation to be sure of a table. Best place in Mentone by far and would be at home set down in a larger town. Good bartender, waitstaff and service. We had the beef entree, the mixed salad and the caesar salad, ice cream with strawberries, all delicious. Portions were good. Lovely bottle of Oregon wine; we took the rest of it home for the sunset. Very attractive bistro and nice ambiance.

    Mother’s Day early evening dining. Smaller menu, but more than enough variety. Nice cocktail, wine and beer selection. Waitress was very friendly and attentive despite seeming to be waiting on every table. The Cacio e Pepe could have been a wee bit more peppery, but otherwise a very good dining experience. We’ll be back even with a 35 minute drive to get here!

    A bit pricey but the food was delicious. The only annoying thing was their choice of "music" which was really loud inside and outside (when they opened the door to outdoor seating). Loved the area -- more to explore. By all means get the steamed mussels!!!

    We enjoyed our time with Elevation! The cocktails were refreshing and unique. The pasta was delicious and not too heavy. I added a side of chicken for protein. My husband ordered the steak and felt it was cooked exactly the way he likes. They have a rotating menu and updates on Instagram. Try the tempura Vidalia Onions!

    Ordered the red fish dinner at $38. The blood lines in the fish had not been removed and that left a portion of the filet grey and unappetizing. Otherwise the fish was okay but had no seasoning other than a lemon. Dish came with Swiss Chard. Only the leafy portion was edible. Stalks were hard, fibrous and not chewable . Chard was tough and probably past it’s prime. Has heard rave reviews and was looking forward to good food. Was very disappointed.

    I really enjoyed the chicken dish I ordered. It was however, a very small portion. A small breast and partial wing, but very tasty along with mashed potatoes. For the $30 price, I feel it should at least come with a side salad or an additional side.
