Like always Elias does not disappoint. We where originally seated outside we asked to be inside since the weather was cooler and it was late in the day. Waited a couple of minutes and was seated inside .love the energy and ambiance.

Just outstanding! Izzy was our server and he couldn’t have been
more attentive.

The octopus was like butter, zucchini and eggplant chips perfectly fried. And our entrees were perfect.

Will be back for sure!!!

Great time out and very nice place. My European Sea Bass was a very thin piece but taste was great. The lemon potatoes were excellent and the beet salad app was excellent too.

Although the food was excellent the restaurant was very crowded. At least 75% capacity indoors.
Line of cars to get in and people kept coming. I was very uncomfortable and it was not monitored.
Service and food outstanding.

Always great! Dined outdoors. Elia’s outdoor patio is beautiful though we opted to sit under a smaller canopy to stay away from the more clustered tables. Service was great and food...just fantastic. Halibut special was the best!

Top notch food and service. Ambiance is wonderful and I love the lounge type music. Best grilled octopus (appetizer) I’ve had in a long time . Love the Greek Beignet dessert. You really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. It’s our new favorite spot.

I am a frequent patron . I go to upscale restaurants every week .. The food is usually excellent . This night the service was terrible. We ordered a 28.00 appetizer it was served was cold . I told the waiter , he seemed to brush it off . We ordered a steak for 2 95.00 , we waited 40 minutes after appetizer . The steak was so burnt , not only it was burnt the chef flipped the burnt parts upside down to hide the burnt parts . The waiters response was I didn’t cook it !!. I was furious , you shouldn’t send food out like that I was embarrassed and hungry . I generally spend 200.00 plus tip when I go there for 2 people . I expect a step above paying those prices .

The food was very good. The service was professional and friendly. My one concern was the crowd outside. I ate inside with a party of four. They have an outside area set up with a beautiful tent and comfortable banquet benches and chairs. The tent is made of waterproof material so if it rains you'll stay dry. The tables under the tent are relatively close together. The tent being waterproof I'm not sure if air can get through it. The restaurant is popular so the outside was a little to crowded for my comfort due to COVID. People probably drive up without reservations. The inside was monitored carefully. If you go you might want to request to sit inside to avoid the crowd outside under the tent.

Was sat right on time. Service was attentive but rushed. We were still finishing our appetizers when the main entrees showed up so we asked they be held in the kitchen. Raw seafood bar was excellent quality and my pasta special was fantastic. The ceviche was a bit too spicy and lacked good flavor, like cilantro and lime. Lamb chops were excellent but only gave 3 small chops. We did not have time for dessert. Overall, the bill came to $229 which was very pricey. Perhaps things will get better when the 90 minute rule is relaxed along with indoor dining.

went to dinner for our 25th anniversary. Happy that they valet, we had reservations so they sat us right away. A cozy table under the tents which by the way have chandelier lighting n cool fans blowing for comfort. The music, ambiance, service, everything was perfect!!! Only thing my skirt steak came out well done instead of medium and it wasn't as warm as I would of liked it to be, but the drinks and everything else we ordered was on point. Def will be returning. Thank you for making our night super awesome n romantic!!

My date and I enjoyed the whole branzino and skirt steak for the entrees. The Saganaki was fantastic, as were the eggplant and zucchini chips with the tzatziki and the ceviche. Fantastic selection of appetizers and entrees.

Great outdoor dining area.
