    Not our first visit and certainly not our last. Met a few girlfriends for brunch. We had avocado toast, potato pancakes (omg yummm!!!!!), steak sandwich, spinach omelette, and a few kids meals. Everything was delicious and super fresh. Prices were quite reasonable for the quality (and size) of each dish. Definitely a must if you’re in red bank.

    I had mixed greens with salmon and the salmon was dry, but more importantly, the greens were slimy. My friend had the chicken caprese and after eating about half, realized that her chicken was raw. They took both off of the check, but we left hungry.

    Table for 6 on a Tuesday night celebrating a birthday. Everyone enjoyed everything we ordered - the spicy cauliflower was amazing! My salmon over fried rice was cooked to perfection. What a great spot. Really looking forward to trying for breakfast!

    The food and service was really good. The fact that when I made the reservation a couple of weeks ago I put down that my son has an allergy to tree nuts sesame and the server had that info when she came to the table 🙌 that's a game changer. That was the beginning of a pleasurable dining experience. Amanda, our server, was personable, efficient and checked on us the appropriate amount of times even though she was handling multiple parties.

    Our office is on Broad Street, so we have eaten here for lunch but had never experienced it for dinner. It's an eclectic restaurant with a very friendly and helpful staff, who served us quickly and efficiently. One warning: the portions are gigantic. Literally, the most food I've ever been served. My son got a Caesar salad, shared it with another diner, and still brought half home. My daughter's chicken parmesan was served on about a pound of pasta. My salmon was huge and came with at least five cups of fried race. In all, the service was friendly and quick, the food was delicious, but consider sharing an entree with a friend! (And definitely get the cauliflower to start!)

    Very pleasant experience. I was hesitant as the dinner menu is limited for my taste. Our waitress was attentive, food was fresh and portions were ample. The wok seared salmon over rice was delicious. My husband had the pulled chicken sandwich which came with a nice side of coleslaw and perfectly crisp french fries. Will definitely return.

    Good food, pleasant server. Nice to be able to hear each other talk without shouting. Interesting menu. Loved the cauliflower appetizer. Would be nice if the white wine was chilled before serving. But overall, enjoyed a nice family dinner.

    The menu is limited for this restaurant. Stay away from the eggplant rollatini. Two of us had it and it was very dry. The portions were big, and the service was okay. We didn't know there were specials until we heard a different Server tell the table next to ours. That was after we had already placed our orders. I don't think we'll be going back anytime soon.

    Myself and 2 friends ate dinner here. The service was outstanding and our waitress was the mother of the owner and she explained a little bit about how it started. We appreciated the story and very happy that this 24 year old opened a cute restaurant in the heart of red Bank. The food was excellent and plentiful. I got the cavatelli broccoli in a bread bowl which was outstanding. I really wanted to take the bread bowl home to eat but was too embarrassed to box it up. I hope Eli’s backyard becomes a staple for locals and visitors everywhere.

    Our first time at Elli's Backyard having a few other standards in Red Bank. So glad we decided to try some place new as Elli's is now on the list of favorites. Easily accommodated our party of 9 (which had been 8). The menu options were diverse and interesting and delicious. Loved the Sangria! The ambience was unique and really fun. Not too loud could actually hear everyone at the table. Service was excellent. Really couldn't have been nicer.

    Could not have asked for a better dining experience. The hostess and our server were so pleasant. The menu has plenty to offer and there is definitely something for everyone. We had the chicken lettuce wraps, the steak sandwich, the big breakfast, and a famous pineapple bowl with chicken. Everything was so fresh and delicious! The chicken lettuce wraps were the perfect summer dish. They even sell bottled wine from a local winery. Super convenient if you forget to bring your own… Or run out. Can’t wait to go back. Elli’s has become out go to for great service and a delicious meal.
