On entering, we four, of the white-haired set, with mild to severe hearing problems, found the noise level not “energetic” but, rather, unbearable. (It was Thursday, Happy Hour, the last day of Columbia classes.) But the charming host, at our request and without missing a beat, graciously led us to a quiet, extremely pleasant, well-appointed room at the back, apparently reserved for large parties, somewhat set off from the main room. The food as well as the service from a charming trainee was excellent. We were left alone, occasionally asked by host and staff how we were doing, did we want music (No!), and, of course, did we want anything else. I would certainly return, but the back room would be the deal-maker, were the decibels up front as high as on my first visit.

Lovely, bright renovation and great food! Our group ordered platters, salads, and small plates, they were all tasty. Staff was very engaging, yet let the our group talk. It was a bit noisy, but probably due to almost all tables being filled. We're looking forward to visiting often.

Loved the atmosphere of this cute restaurant, and the wait staff were attentive and friendly. The food was good-especially the eggs benedict and the salads. Also, the restrooms were very clean and nice- which I appreciated.

Enjoyed a wonderful Sunday brunch. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed. Christoph greeted us and helped choose a perfect table for conversation with our friends. The attentive staff made sure our drinks were full and that we had everything we needed for a perfect visit. Great food, beautiful place, professional staff and reasonable prices are sure to make Elysian a success. Look forward to returning for dinner soon.

Went for brunch and was seated right away but didn’t get any water or service for a long time. 3 managers were walking around while 1 waiter and 1 buser rushed between 7 tables, all with no food. Eventually got our food that was edible but not flavorful, memorable, or worth the price. Oddly they did not have iced tea available for brunch. Will not be returning!

An incredible new addition to the Columbia / Upper West Side area! Reminiscent of a European cafe with a modern twist! The service is friendly and efficient and the food .... well you must stop by and try the food. The Shepard’s salad was citrusy and delightful on the tastebuds. The Gyro was full of flavor and brought back memories of dining in Greece. The night we were there, the owner who was there as well, very graciously had glasses of champagne sent to our table as we were celebrating a friends Birthday! We will be back!

We enjoyed this new restaurant in Amsterdam and 119th- casual Greek food. From the Greek salad to the chicken kabobs to the seafood. Delicious- the service was very good. Atmosphere was lovely, the restaurant is spacious. We already booked a birthday party in the private space downstairs.

What a great addition to the Morningside area! I was visiting my niece and she was raving about this new place. We were seated (with a reservation) immediately. The place was humming. Great music, beautifully decorated.

Our server was very sweet - he offered specials and some favorable wines. We decided on a couple of appetizers and a platter for two. The dips were absoultely delicious - exactly as I would have expected them to be had we been in Greece! Paired with the suggested bottle of white they were to die for! The spinach pie was rich and creamy - so good! We were stuffed but saved room for the generous meat platter which had various cuts of kebab and some kind of sausage that I can't say but did enjoy!

The oregano and feta fries left me drooling... my niece insisted on dessert which was some kind of baklava ice cream. It was amazing!! I am looking forward to many more visits... Can't wait!
