Mediocre food. Grits were ok but barely warm. Burger was what you’d get at a chain restaurant. Fries, nothing special. Server was pleasant, but not very attentive. Spend your money & time elsewhere.

I was running 30 min late due to traffic and I still was able to get a seat valet was not available at the time so the hotel manager grabbed my car. This was amazing we had a great waiter and it was a beautiful venue the glass around the table needed to be wiped down as it looked greasy. The steak and fries were excellent but my salmon was overcooked a bit dry the drinks are really good. The dessert was good overall it was a pleasant experience,

Shrimp and grits were very unusual and very much tomato based. Salmon was nothing special. Ok view and pricy. May go back for a drink but not dinner.

We came to Eleve Restaurant to enjoy the evening on the rooftop- before it got dark it was a very nice atmosphere, however when it got dark there was minimal light and we could not even see our food! The waitress brought us two very small candles that didn’t stay lit very long- so we would recommend additional soft lighting to add to the ambiance of being outside at night!

We had the Shrimp and Grits and it was OK.
The waitress was nice.

We would patronage again maybe earlier in the evening.

Love the location and the ambience of the place. Service was nice but neither my friend or I were impressed with the food which made the price for food not worth it. We stopped their for lunch and had the burgers and fries. I only ate half of my burger. The charcuterie board and the cocktails were very good. I would come back again to try the brunch/dinner menus and see if there is a difference.

Outstanding food and wonderful space. The outside dinning seating felt cheap and grungy. Service was par. But overall would definitely do again simply for the quality of food. It made the small issues seem unimportant.

We spent the evening at the hotel and had drinks and appetizers the night prior and breakfast in the morning. Food is amazing and cool atmosphere. Close to shopping and our room was comfortable. Plan to stay there again on our next trip.

We did the Restaurant Week menu. It was delicious. Between the 4 of us, we tried everything on the menu. No disappointment in any starter, entree nor dessert. Very happy.
They overcharged with desserts, only one was extra charge, and quickly took care of the mistake and even comped the dessert.
We left happy and impressed. Will return.

Normally, I am optimistic and understanding but this was such bad service and food that it could not be overlooked. Not only did we have to wait an hour for our entrees but the kitchen ran out of ingredients for my meal (did not tell me until I saw the food in front of me) and the dessert I wanted. My meal had no seasoning, the salmon was charred to where it was bitter and I found several bones in it, and the waitress only checked in with me and my boyfriend twice when we first got there. The gap between appetizer and entree (1 hr), she did not check in with us or refill our waters or cocktails. We didn’t even get desserts like we planned and went somewhere else. Plus my boyfriend’s cocktail was not made correctly and was extremely bitter, it was hard to get help to change it or get the attention of our waitress. Will not be returning.

Overall: Excellent view of the city, great service at the time of our visit*, and mediocre food (except for the dessert).

*Not a typical dinning experience, because the restaurant was basically empty when we went (1230 on a Thursday.)

Food: The menu was fairly limited, only 3-4 choices per category. The poke starter was delicious. Both of our sandwiches were nothing to write home about, especially at that price point. The lave cake desert was delicious, though the presentation didn't impress.

Staff: Amazing while we were there.

Ambiance: Pretty cool spot, the combination of lighting and rooftop views definitely makes is a good location for a weekend sit-down and drink.

Drinks: Average drink was 10-15 dollars, which felt a little expensive. We tried the margarita, their mojito equivalent, and scotch on the rocks. Everything was delicious

Overall: You are obviously paying for the view and location here. The weakest point was the main meals, which is a little odd since the menu was already winnowed down only 4 choices for an entre. With each drink running roughly $12-15 our longer lunch ended up around $150 with tip. Definitely a beautiful location, but if your wife is a foody, I might go somewhere else.

The food was very good. I think we came a little to early as it took awhile to be served and our first table was in an area that was somewhat loud. However, when we asked to be moved - no problem and after that we had great service.

The food was wonderful and the restaurant weeks special were a great price! We had a very nice date night.

Our waitress was the rudest woman I have ever encountered in a fine dining establishment. My group was nothing but polite and gracious to her. At the end of our brunch, two of Us let the table (table of 4) know that we covered the tip. This rude waitress, went out of her way to embarrass and harass my younger sister, who deals with depression and anxiety, about the fact the she didn’t tip. Tho, she hadn’t even seen the tips covered by myself and my mother, that was more than 20% of our total tab. My sister was humiliated, cried for hours and literally ruined our day because she was so upset. Will never be back. Not worth the experience.

When I made the reservation I didn't realize it was a hotel restaurant (I was attracted by the rooftop terrace) as it turned out, it rained and we sat inside.
Our server Audrey was Amazing. She seemed to be the only server, however she was attentive, extremely pleasant and offered excellent service. As it turned out, we returned a couple of nights later and she remembered our names. She is truly a gem.

We really enjoyed the food. The corn ravioli was delicious! We also enjoyed having a cocktail out on the rooftop patio. I was a little disappointed with the dining area. The tables were in between 2 bars. It was if you were eating in a cocktail lounge not really a dining area.
