Another awesome meal!!
The crispy mushrooms are fantastic!
Table setting very awkward roof leaking on us and onto floor making it slippery had to pay 75 bucks for a rib eye and to top it all off they charge for bread! Not worth the money
Everything was wonderful. The music was a little loud for us.
We have had a vacation home in Mentone for a little over a year now and spend most of the weekends there and eat at Elevation at least once most of the time.
A previous reviewer complained about there being a charge for the bread. It is clearly on the menu with a price…and it’s certainly not your typical free bread that gets sent out at other restaurants.
Yes, the ribeye was $75 and it’s also fresh (vs dry aged) beef, which has a totally different taste and does not appeal to everyone. I ordered the same steak and like the previous reviewer, had a little bit of sticker shock…..but guess what, it’s MY fault for not asking what the Market Price was. The only person to complain to is myself…and I gave myself a break. :-)
If you think you’re going to go to this little mountain town and score a $200 meal for $50, you’re not.
Kevin is an accomplished and thoughtful chef. He creates each menu according to the best fresh ingredients he can get that week. I licked the plate after the Ambrosia Corn - I had never heard of that breed of corn, and now I will never forget it. I’d put him right up there with Bham chefs any day of the week…..especially on Sundays with his Shrimp & Grits….which are the best I’ve ever put in my mouth.
And then there’s Fontana, or as we call her, The Hardest Working Lady in Mentone. She always serves with a smile! And I’ll plug her food truck while I’m at it. Fontastic Foods in the parking lot at the Mentone in. Browse the Farmer’s Market and order lunch. Be prepared to wait though, everything is cooked to order and it’s so VERY worth it!!
Grilled Airline Chicken Breast - (airline because it has a little wing!) I don’t know how Kevin always makes a chicken breast fork tender, but he does.
The Pork Chop - ESPECIALLY if it comes from Mildred’s Meadows. I am telling you, even the fat is delicious on those things.
PEI Mussels - yummmm
The farms are listed on the back of the menu.
See you Saturday!
Best food ever. The French onion soup is marvelous. The chicken was great.
Always enjoy dining at Elevation Bistro, the food is always great. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I would recommend to anyone in the Mentone area to give it a try you won’t regret it .
Elevation is such a lovely experience. The food, the setting and the service are all top notch. Food comes out hot and perfectly cooked. Fontana and Kevin make it special every time. Thanks!
I liked it so much I went 2 nights in a row. I enjoyed the specials, but loved the arugula and walnut salad. Great service. The chef is great too.
Good food, nice atmosphere and friendly service. A little expensive though.
Fantastic food and service!
Food was delicious. Our server was awesome and very busy. Wonderful dinner for our 33rd Anniversary.
It was wonderful…the best meal we’ve had in a long, long time. Thanks to Chef Kevin!!
We are never disappointed with a dinner at Elevation! My daughter was visiting from San Antonio and this was the perfect place to to go for delicious food and a warm and special atmosphere. We always enjoy the live music and fireplace, too. Thanks, Kevin, for providing our go-to date nights on the mountain!
Celebrating a birthday. The service was impeccable! The Chef personally came out to see if our food was what we expected. The grilled pork chop was phenomenal! There was also live music and was such a treat!
Nice and quaint restaurant with excellent service from the staff. The chef was also attentive after our meal to ensure that we had a pleasant dining experience. The food was wonderful and worth the wait. Definitely a little gem to find in Mentone.
Service was great. Food delicious. Had the chicken and pork chops. Simple Salad was excellent! Will be back!!
The food and service are top shelf. Hands down the best restaurant in Mentone and they never disappoint!
Wonderful meal, great cocktail and nice quiet atmosphere~ Would recommend to anyone !
Appetizers, beverages, and dessert were fantastic. Entrees were not our favorites. Took 90 minutes from time we placed order to receive entrees, and the inside was only half full when we arrived. Overall it was ok. Probably would make a different choice the next time we’re in town.
This is fine dining in a very casual, comfortable atmosphere with NO pretentious attitudes. The meal is expertly prepared with fresh ingredients, with many being locally produced by people in the community or near by. As with most true dining locations, it is an evening experience, not a quick place to eat and go. It is expected you are staying a while and enjoying the company of your party and some fantastic food. This was my second visit and will go again.
Elevation Bistro has friendly staff and wonderful food! We ate there on our honeymoon and was well pleased.
Amazing food, great ambiance, and wonderful staff!
Excellent appetizer and main courses. Service was great. Chef came out and talked after our meal. A great experience, we will definitely be back.
A wonderful visit for an anniversary dinner. Live music was available the evening we were there on the patio deck/area. The service and food was excellent! Very enjoyable evening. Would definitely return.
We had an excellent dinner of Atlantic flounder. The fish was done just right.
We also liked the white beans and onions as a side dish.
The food was good although the salmon was cool. The food needed salt. The meal took awhile to come out although the servers were attentive.
The food was tasty, but the service was lacking. There was a bartender and one server. There simply was not enough staff. The food is a bit over priced.
This is not our first visit to Elevation and it won’t be our last. Consistently great food and great service!
Despite having several food restrictions, the staff graciously accommodated our requests. The food was delicious. Staff was polite and friendly. We'll be returning for sure.
After multiple trips to this fine restaurant we can still say that we are thrilled with the food and service. We took friends on this visit and they were equally impressed. The Red Snapper was superb as was the okra based soup and the key lime pie. Proud to have such a fine establishment as part of our Mentone Community.
Service was very slow and the musician was very loud for the space.
Excellent dining experience. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and so hospitable. The food was amazing! All fresh and locally sourced. It makes a difference. We will be back every chance we get.
Elevation is always wonderful. It is the place to dine in Mentone. We love it. All organic, all beautifully prepared. Service is wonderful.
We had a wonderful meal for our 15th Anniversary! Atmosphere was quiet - food was AMAZING- nice drink selection!! We will definitely visit there again!!!
We had dinner at Elevation to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The staff went out of their way to wish him a happy birthday and to make sure our meal and service was far more than expected. Exceptional!
A great experience!
Brought friends for their first time. We’ve touted Elevation so much for months now, they remarked that they hoped it lived up to the hype. No worries!! It was delicious as always. It is one of the most consistent restaurants we’ve ever frequented.
Great service from Fontana. Creative well prepared menu, interesting wine and beer choices
Kevin and crew, especially Fontana, made our dining experience five star. The food was excellent, every single bite. We will be back
A wonderful evening on the patio for our last night in Mentone. Incredible food and a good wine selection… highly recommend it!
