Elia is always outstanding. I've always enjoyed anything that I've ordered, but the Chilean Sea Bass is absolutely amazing. Its my favorite piece of fish that I always order if I see it on the menu, but Elia doesnt it like no other– its like the fish is not only seasoned top and bottom, but inside out. Its moist and flaky and absolutely delicious!

I been going elias for my birthday since it opened. This year i understand it's different circumstances but i felt super rushed. No pita bread until i asked the bus boy to bring it after 2 appetizers were already brought out. The waiter came around and asked if we were ready for our main course (this was 30 minutes into dinner) i said no give it a little time because we weren't done with apps. Before we were done with our oysters & clams they brought our fish dinners out and by now it was 40 minutes into dinner. They took the dinner back and gave us more time. I understand there's time limits now but 40 minutes is not enough time. dinner and drinks for my husband and i came out to $350, i would like to enjoy it instead of being rushed out of there. Elias is always our go to spot but not sure it's worth it anymore if I'm going to be rushed out of there. I go there for the ambience and experience as well as the delicious food. I would like that actually enjoy the meal instead if eating it so quickly.

I found Elia because of the pandemic restrictions and was grateful they'd done their outside so lovely. To have the food be outstanding was just perfection. I'm here every week and still haven't tried everything on the menu. I'm happily working my way through it. Go and enjoy.

We were running late to dinner & they let us sit anyways. But let’s talk about my experience... the appetizers were delicious! We would of licked the plate if we could. Second our entrees were very well presented & not to mention very much tasty! Last but not least dessert!!! Very good! I love sweets so when I tell you I very much enjoyed the dessert plus the manager discounted the dessert because there was 2 birthdays. So overall yes give it a try because the food & ambiance is great!

My friend would not dine inside so Elia's became our go to restaurant. We had no idea what the quality was and were both so pleased with the entire restaurant that we kept it as our weekly restaurant. The staff, the care, the food all are spectacular and I can't stress enough how completely lovely the staff has been every time we go. We're weekly brunch patrons and we're gleefully working our way through the menu 😋

We went for brunch with a party of 5 for my husband’s 60th birthday. The food was amazing and the service was nothing short of spectacular. They could not be more attentive and accommodating. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will surely be going back many times going forward.

Reserved for a 1030 brunch because the website says there's a time limitation. So we planned on a quick brunch. The place is beautiful and the staff is friendly. The noise level was quite high by 1130. Two small Americano's was 12 bucks. That's what I paid for the chopped salad that I could eat. It smelled funky and tasted bad. And for a place that puts time limitations on dining time, we had to ask for our food because either they forgot about us or wanted to keep us there longer.

We celebrated my husband and son’s birthdays. The staff was friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. We ordered zucchini and eggplant chips, octopus and saganaki as appetizers and they were delicious. For dinner, we ordered lavraki (sea bass), seafood pasta, and scallops and again, everything was so tasty and well prepared and portions were just right. The restaurant is beautiful inside, modern with a touch of tradition and outside, they have a tent set up with heating to accommodate safety guidelines during Covid. What a pleasant dining experience. I will definitely be returning.

I took my girlfriend to this place for Valentine’s Day because we love Mediterranean food and wanted to try a more upscale version of it. From the outstanding food to the energetic atmosphere our experience here was nothing less than awesome. This is our new go to spot for authentic Mediterranean food. The chef also has a very clear understanding of Mediterranean food flavor profiles and make the some of the best food I’ve ever eaten

The environment was very energetic, upbeat music and the inside of the restaurant was beautiful. The service was great across the board, from being seated, to the waiter and the individuals directing us to the bathroom. The food was good but the restaurant made up for where the food fell short.
