By far the best dining experience I’ve had to date. From food, to service, to ambiance.... top noch restaurant with nice sized portions.
I've been here three times now and it never disappoints. Fresh, delicious food. Incredibly kind and attentive staff. Walking in feels like you've walked into a restaurant in Greece. I go here before going to concerts at the Prudential Center and it's always a great way to start a night.
Great seafood! Great service!
The dining experience was great. However, waited at the bar for table, and I could not get a bartender’s attention. There were 2 and neither ever looked up except to the men they kept serving. At a minimumI would have expected as experienced at other bars, acknowledging I was there. It was a turnoff and bad way to begin the evening. I was told they had a bartender call in sick. Well it’s a Sat night. Have a backup.
Place is great atmosphere food was all very good. No real negatives. Little pricey for the area but it was good so i don’t mind.
Best Greek Restaurant in Bergen County.
My favorite restaurant!
The best greek restaurant in Jersey
Appetizers = 10. Entrees = 5 at best. Very pretty decor, nice music, overall great vibe..Trendy vibes..Great service!
The food is always delicious. On this particular night, the restaurant was packed and was outrageously noisy! People were actually yelling...hard to hear each other. Very, very loud music...don't mind the music if it's more background. Also, took hours to get our food. I've been here several times and normally the flow is right on but on this visit, we had a long wait between courses. The waiter was less than attentive. Hoping for a better service experience next time.
Music way, way too loud and they would not lower it. So difficult to talk to the person sitting next to you or hear the waiter recite the dinner specials
Food was amazing. Nuff said
Excellent service and a very relaxing time. Had a great Birthday!
Had an issue w/ I assumed was the owner. He came across very rude. Said my wife’s car was left w/ the wrong keys. When we told him it wasn’t us. And when we suggested it might be another vehicle, the owner said the car is going to be towed.
We loved Elia! The ambiance is what really sets this place apart. You truly feel like you are in the Mediterranean. Beautiful white-washed walls, lovely decor, even beach umbrellas in the restaurant! The food was delicious. We got the Greek spreads and Pita as an appetizer. The spicy feta was so good I could've eaten it alone with a spoon. For entrees, we got the vegan risotto and mediterranean pasta respectively. Both were fresh and delicious. Everything, in general, was incredibly fresh and full of flavor. We will definitely be back, and highly recommend. While the food is very pricey, you certainly get what you pay for.
Fabulous meal. Great food in a beautiful setting. Expensive at about $170 a couple
Elia is beautiful! Reminded me of eating in Greece, tranquil music, gorgeous setting, patio umbrellas. Food was amazing...the shrimp appetizer, and octopus! Waiter was wonderful.
Always a great meal. Food is fresh and delicious. Service friendly.
The ambience, lighting, seating, etc is lovely and easeful. The food DELICIOUS! I ordered the branzino (different in Greek) and it was the best I've had in a while, fresh, delicate, flavorful and tender and the Horta was perfect. Service and wait staff were lovely too. Thank you! I look forward to dining there again soon.
Our waiter Ahmed was pleasant, the food was great!
Outstanding service, exquisite food & drinks in a beautiful setting!
This restaurant is very pricey. The lamb chops, scallops, grilled octopus and fall/winter salad were excellent. However, the skirt steak was chewy and the potatoes were too hard. You cannot substitute without being charged extra. In my opinion considering their high prices, substitution should be complimentary. The acoustics are loud, therefore I would not recommend for a romantic dinner.
The food was excellent. Unfortunately it was a Saturday night and they were understaffed. The background music was head pounding. To bad because the fish was fresh and terrific!
Great experience over all. Servers were very professional, food plated great with detail and tasting amazing. Great vibe. Long wait though but it was packed!
Went here for 8.30p reservation on Valentine's Day. Being how busy they were, not being seated until 8.45p wasn't a huge deal. EXCELLENT food. Everything we had was delicious. Tuna tartare, ouzo shrimp, and Mediterranean chop salad appetizers, half chicken and skirt steak dinner, and walnut baklava dessert. Will definitely be back and highly recommend this place to anyone who loves food.
Food was great and service was phenomenal. Very attentive staff. Went on Valentine’s Day so the restaurant was very busy. Witnessed male owner stressing out on his staff. He probably could have been and should have been nicer to his staff who were all busting their butts off to service the guests. Our water glasses never went empty and the timing of the courses went without a hitch.
This restaurant is outstanding! It most definitely is my new favorite spot.
Excellent dinner. The timing and flow of courses was just right as well.
We live locally and would come for lunches. However, your lunch choices
for grilled fish look sparse on your web site. As a comparison, we like to
lunch at Il Villagio in Carlstadt. They consistently have 6 to 8 fresh fish dishes
offered week-days for lunch.
Thank you for the review. We are a fish restaurnt and we have over 10 daily on a display at all times in the restaurant. Maybe the menu wasn't that clear and I will like for you to join us so we can show you the daily catches. Thank you Mgmt
Great food, great service, beautiful restaurant! I felt like I was in Greece!
