    We were a party of 11 celebrating an 88th birthday and didn’t know what to expect. We were placed on the covered patio and it was perfect for the size of our party. Our server Jesse was wonderful, especially with the birthday boy! Very surprised with the quality of the food and everyone was extremely happy with their choices. We will definitely be back!!!

    The first time I had the ribeye it was delicious! The last two times I have had it, it has been overdone and tough. The baked potato and veggies were really good. I an losing interest in going back to The Eldo. They were very busy...took some time to get a drink but overall the service was good.

    Our server Zooy was horrific from the start! All tables around us had to ask many times for the basics, water, utensils, service etc. We frequent The Eldo and always a good local spot but tonight was unacceptable!

    Overall everyone was fine. They’re using the QR code (no paper menu) for the menu but me and my guest did not have cellular service in the restaurant. The restaurant offered a guest WiFi but their password didn’t work. I spoke to the staff and they said they were aware their WiFi was not working and offered an iPad mini to review their menu.

    Took the family out to enjoy this phenomenal place hidden between Lakewood and Long Beach. Just a great looking place, lots of character. The service is spectacular and the food leaves you without words. Incredible flavor, incredible color, and super fast to the table at the border it. Everything taste like they put so much effort and flavor into every plate. Love coming here and will be a family staple for years to come.

    The Eldo is a hidden gem in Long Beach. The food and drinks were delicious, the energy is lively and it’s a popular social spot which can result with longer wait times for food and drinks but that does not prevent me from visiting again which I plan to .

    We always have a wonderful meal and drinks. We were seated close to the bar and there were 3 couples above our both. They were extremely loud and kept shaking our booth. The staff is always so nice and helpful there was just nothing anyone can do. Next time we will request a table towards the back.

    Food was very good, nachos and ribeye were excellent! Loaded baked potatoes and salad were both very good as well. The shrimp was tasty, but please peel the shells off before serving-way too messy, unless you’re going out for that kind of meal. Drinks were good, but why is there no olives with your martini? The server was happy to bring olives, after serving the drink, but it doesn’t make sense that you would serve a martini without olives. Finally, noise level was way too loud, only because the acoustics seem very poor. If you put in an acoustical ceiling I’m sure it would be much better.

    We always love the Eldo, it’s our neighborhood joint. Occasionally I just really crave their ribeye and it did not disappoint. My friend enjoyed his fish and chips which would be my second favorite offering. The lamb curry is also excellent. The service is friendly and they continue to make improvements that make it more attractive every time I come in. Now that it’s fall, I wish they would turn on the fireplace at night. My other big wish is that they would give you a menu if you wanted one because they are the only hold out restaurant I visit that forces you to go to a QR code and scroll the menu instead of just giving you a paper menu to glance at If you ask for one. Come on guys. Many people don’t want to sit and stare at their phones for the first 10 minutes they spend in a restaurant. Especially because no one can ever remember the stupid Wi-Fi password because it’s stupid. Please change it to something easier and give people paper menus and then you will be the perfect restaurant. Thank you.

    This is the epitome of the term “neighborhood gem”. The sports bar area is on fire and super lively but if you want a quiet dinning area, out on patio is perfect. The food here is excellent as is the service and you don’t have to take out a 2nd mortgage to pay for it. We love it and will definitely be back.
