Great food and service in a beautiful dining room. We sill be returning soon
I felt a little rush by waiter and every 2 minutes some one or the same person keep asking the same... how is everything? Even when they see yoh just putting the fork on your mouth.
Other than that. EXCELLENT!!!!
I have visited 3 times so far and have had wonderful experiences. Great food, service, and ambiance
Beautiful restaurant with the freshest fish and amazing service. Very diverse wine list and great specialty cocktails!! Can’t wait to come back!
Our regular go-to quality local eatery. The adage "you get what you pay for" suitably applies to this neighborhood gem. Its seafood, including raw oysters, are as fresh as can be, and its other dishes are deliciously and aesthetically presented. It has extensive wines and cocktails and it even stocks rare Japanese whiskeys. I'm glad it's in my neighborhood.
Great experience. My coworkers and I originally had a reservation but we opted to try their new happy hour at the bar rather than sit in the dining room. The place is beautiful. We shared a few appetizers. The chips and the octopus were to DIE for. Staff is friendly. Definitely will be coming back to try some more dishes!
Tonight’s experience at Elia was marvelous. Very attentive wait staff, amazing bar and bartender, and overall an amazing time! I would suggest this place to everyone and anyone! A hidden gem in east Rutherford. Will definitely be back with more friends!
From the moment we stepped into Elia we were blown away by the decor and ambiance, simply beautiful. Service was top notch and overall we had an amazing time . Our server bobby was outstanding .
Elia is always outstanding, food, ambience, service, and cocktails are always on point! Management is always very helpful and servers are knowledgeable of their menu items! Can’t wait for my next dining experience at Elia !
The decor and atmosphere is indeed, fine & rare. It's a place you want to dress up for as the decor and atmosphere almost begs for it. The fish display is beautiful with a selection of wild fresh fish.
Service was excellent and our server coursed our meal perfectly. We actually had time to soak in the environment and the food! The food on the other hand was out of this world. Simply excellent will be back .
Great ambiance and service. Good fresh and delicious 😋 recommend to check out. Middle of nowhere
Husband birthday dinner. Our server Adam was great. We will be back
very disappointing! service was slow. a whole red snapper was $65 which even ny restaurants don’t charge that much. wanted just tzatziki and was told couldn’t get it. if we really wanted it, we’d get the same portion as if we ordered the trio of spreads for the same price. EVERY other greek restaurant accommodates this request. they were out of the wine we wanted, and waiter was pushing for more expensive bottle. sorry for the negative review, but it’s honest.
The place is Beautiful !
It would of received Five stars for food , and this is only my preference , ordered a seafood tower and there was no crab or lobster. Oyster clams shrimp calamari. Delicious tho .. will definitely be going back SOON
We entered the restaurant and went to our table, great ambiance. We waited a VERY long time for ANYONE to approach our table. Finally we were able to flag a waiter down to get drinks. When our real waiter finally came, he rushed us to order all of our food at once.
Honestly.... food great but overpriced. Service subpar. Ambience , very nice.
I love the ambiance and energy of this place. It is so clean and fresh, you would never know there was an open display of fish on ice in the back of the room. The appetizers were very tasty especially the octopus which can easily be over-cooked and rubbery, but neither was the case here! I always choose one of the the fish by the pound selections, but I look forward to going back to try a dish from the menu. It is a "larger" night to the pocketbook, but on a special occasion, money well spent !
We were a party of 10 , service was spectacular. Food outstanding . Will definitely be back. Everything was simply perfect
Just outstanding like always!! I believe Ahmed was my waiters name was so helpful and at tentative. Keep up the good work. Gem in my neighborhood!
Ambience is a gorgeous, culturally driven, unique design. Open and bright. For that alone, you will enjoy your visit. Food, service and cocktails were great! Hostess was very pleasant and assisted with our handicap-needed entrance and exit.
Excellent service, overall a wonderful experience . Vibe and ambiance was perfect. Would recommend to all
This was our first dining experience at Elia was it was amazing! The food was exceptional along with the service. Our waiter, Yonnis, was friendly and professional. The atmosphere is so unique, like something in Europe. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. Oh and the price is a little high but well worth it!
Another great Friday night at Elia. Everything was perfect, thanks!
Oysters, perfectly cooked Tuna, and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. A perfect Friday night!!!
Food and ambiance was wonderful. Lots of gluten free options. Zucchini chips dip was delicious.
I had a wonderful experience at Elia. It was my first time there and I will most definitely return.
Beautiful restaurant with great food. I think my daughter's chilean sea bass was the best entree on the table.
Love dining there. Whether at the bar or at a table always a great experience.
We love this place but have grown accustomed to BYOB restaurants, therefore, it was very expensive. I wish it was a BYOB! We would go more often. People welcome you and service and food were good. However, we go to restaurants of this caliber and higher for $50 less.
Had a wonderful time at Elia today , lunch was perfect with my coworkers. Will be back .
Had a great lunch today at Elia , looking forwards to my next trip
Simply amazing ... was left almost speechless . This is my new favorite restaurant!
This has to be one of my favorite places to eat. A wonderful New York atmosphere without having to cross the Hudson. I’ve been here a few times now, the food is amazing and the servers are always on top of their game. Everyone here makes you feel comfortable and welcome. Thank you!
Beautiful Experience lovely servers the crusted feta cheese was out of this world! We’ll be back!
Beautiful place great food & service Owners Tim & Anna Maria were awesome
Bar lounge area first for a buzz, another few rounds at the table under the olive trees, had some outstanding appetizers,, then came the live DJ playing vibe music at a reasonable level . Overall I had an amazing time with wife . Great place for a date night 10 out of 10.
The Halibut special was incredible and the DJ was a perfect addition to a great Friday night crowd! What a beautiful space!
Food was very good, and nice live DJ playing music.
Service attention was good, but food came too quick - seemed like they were rushing through seating even though at the time we were eating it was late so no need to do so. Entree course came without even clearing off appetizer dishes.
Food was pretty but the taste was underwhelming. Won’t go back
Lunch: Attractive, airy room; nicely designed. Service by Bobby was attentive and informed. Whole Fagri and Black Sea bass were expertly prepared. And the wine list had opportunities to explore Greek wines. Be aware that market prices on the whole fish can be a bit steep; diners shouldn’t hesitate to inquire about the current price so there are no surprises when the bill arrives.
Overall a well-run and enjoyable restaurant.
Simply excellent , Came here Friday night with a party of 8 for my brothers 40th birthday dinner. Outstanding service from the moment we walked in . Ambiance was as if we were in a Mediterranean island. Drinks were fast, and food came out in a correct time order. FOOD was AMAZING blew my mind. Defiantly recommend this place to everyone!
