    Wonderful venue for a long Saturday Birthday brunch after the Farmer's Market. The Grilled Octopus appetizer was absolutely delightful. The Seabass was fresh and well presented and the Baked Eggs were perfect for a cold and rainy day! The service was so accommodating and the decor had a really welcoming modern beach vibe. Our espresso martini and mimosa were generous and en pointe! Sweet find, highly recommended!

    Exceptional experience, super fun, delicious high quality food, superb service. Burak and his team made us feel loved. Full meal at the bar. Octopus, farmers salad, moussaka, lamb rack, honey yogurt dessert. Well paired wine recommendations. Lively curated music, clean modern table ware, good lighting and interior design. Nice outdoor terrace with fireplace. Highly recommend and will return, often. Thank you Elia 🙏🏽

    Good Greek style menu - we had the smelt which were nicely fried and lightly salted - good version of fries with eyes - I would have liked them a little crisper but still good, Also had the octopus -very tender and tasty. The server thought we had ordered calamari which we had not - but when it showed up he left it with his compliments - classy move Spiro. Our mains were the lamb shank and lamb chops - both were well made and delicious. Very friendly staff - Brooks, Jose and Spiro were all first class. Will definitely go back.

    Came to Elia to celebrate my birthday with my husband. I ordered the sea bass and my husband had the lamb chop. The food was spectacular! Every bite was flavorful and delicious. Portion was plentiful too. We had great service and the ambiance was lovely! I would highly recommend Elia to friends and family.

    Elia used to be our favorite restaurant. We’ve been there numerous times in the past. I’m very disappointed that the quality and taste of the food has been declining each time I visited. We were there to celebrate my friend’s birthday. Few items we received were so bland that we need to add salt. Our waiter never checked with us on our food. Did they change ownership?

    There is no question that the food here is great. But, the service always seems to be subpar. On more than one occasion, the waiters weren’t able to answer simple questions about the wine list. When we arrived, we had multiple people greet us and confirm our reservation, but one after the other told us we had to wait for another person to seat us. (It was strange.). We will definitely return as these are nitpicks, but they are things that I would expect a restaurant at this price range to manage better.

    We walked it and it took awhile for us to be greeted. The host finally came up to us and asked “what can I do for you” no hello, how are you nothing in a rude tone like we were bothering him. I told him we had a reservation for 5:30 and he sat us. We got water immediately and after 10 mins of just sitting there we had to flag someone down to take our drink order. Our waitress was nice and helpful but the service was extremely slow and the food was mediocre. Between my husband and I we ordered the escargot, octopus, lobster dish and lamb dish which came out to about $380. For the amount we paid I expect 5 star dishes at 5 star service but it was mediocre at best and wouldn’t spend my time or money here again.

    Energetic place with lots of good options on the menu; Maine lobster tail that comes with the seafood paella and bucatini was delicious! We also enjoyed the flaming cheese appetizer and the grilled octopus. The house made rolls, served with tapenade were fantastic as always. Service is a bit sluggish and was off to a slow start, especially the drinks. Our appetizer came before the drinks arrived; two in our party ordered medium rare lamb chops but came out as one medium rare and one medium. Upon checking, our waitress came back and said 'oh, actually they are both medium, so we are all good.' (?!) I would say growing pains, except this restaurant has been opened for more than a year... Recommend with trepidation.

    It was a great late lunch for a group of us after presenting our project. We got there at 2pm and asked to change our table to sit outside. They were very accommodating. Even though they usually stop serving at 2:30 pm, they did not rush us out and made us feel welcome. The food was great, the service was prompt and overall was a great experience.
