We loved the service and we loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. We ordered shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, and brussels sprouts. Everything was really good, but I would have to say the shrimp and grits were my favorite.

Definitely a place that is more tuned to a late-night drinks crowd than anyone looking for a serious meal. The calamari was good, as was the wine. Stay and have an appetizer with some friends.

Overall it was an enjoyable experience...The mashed potatoes, green beans were great as sides. The chicken very tasty....I told a few friends and family about this little Jen...The biscuits were totally overdone and hard.
Because I know things are especially slow and hard for the restaurant industry as a whole I try to support them and I know servers are making the tips they need to survive so I tip even more....I tipped $10 on a $32 ticket....the was nice but I felt like she just disappeared and it was really a bother for her to check on us even though we were her only client.
I will definitely come back more often and try a few of the other menu items...as I said in the beginning overall it was very enjoyable.

Eloise Nichols is a great combination of upscale food in a casual environment. Fun seasonal cocktails and amazing fried chicken coexist with steak frites and oysters.

The espresso martinis were to DIE for. The food has been great every time I have been. This time however the soft scramble was not soft scrambled. All the right ingredients, but definitely not done the proper way and just regular scrambled eggs.

Arlene was an outstanding server. Food as usual was fantastic. It is the perfect restaurant for casual yet elegant food and service. This is a great neighborhood dining spot to go once a week. The more often you go the better it gets!

Chicken and waffles were more like chicken bits and waffles was disappointing to see. Good n addition the chicken bits taste rather bland.

Eloise Nichols has a wonderful happy hour, which includes both cocktails and small plates. I really enjoyed the meatballs and the manhattan. I've enjoyed both brunch and happy hour at Eloise Nichols a number of times and I will continue to come back and bring friends!

Pitiful appetizers, cold coffee and overall worst service I've ever received. We were also almost impaled by an umbrella that was not weighted down and literally lifted out of our table with a strong gust of wind. Not only had it apparently happened earlier that very same day, the staff sat us there completely aware of the liability, and then were completely unapologetic... The restaurant's only saving grace is that its in a super cute space and is well appointed.

My friend and I had an excellent night at Eloise! We had oysters, burrata with apples and brussels sprouts. All the food was delicious. We got the east coast oysters and they were so good, we ordered them twice. Drink wise, they make a mean dirty martini, also best espresso martini I’ve had! This is my second time dining there and both times the wait staff has been super friendly and helpful. I will be going back

I love this restaurant, and have eaten there many times. On this most recent visit, I had invited a friend out to lunch and asked her to pick the spot. She picked Eloise Nichols, because she has also had great meals there, a few with me. Again, we had a fun and delicious experience there. We both had different Cobb salads and shared a lime pie. Delish! Such a pleasant atmosphere in which to visit and dine.
