Elena's is a great family restaurant, The food is great and the prices are reasonable. There is always a friendly atmosphere. It can get a little busy during peak season, but off season we never wait for a table.

Elena's has been a staple of this neighbourhood for a long time. The food and atmosphere are not fancy. The food and prices are good. The staff could be more courteous. They are busy, but customer service is very important as well in this business.

This restaurant has good easy food. The crowd is defiantly on the more silver side and that's how we knew it would be good eats. Very crowded but wait was not to long at all. Food came out quick and tasty! noticed the table could have been wiped down a bit better, sticky with syrup.

This was my first visit here but my parents are regulars. Service was great and it was awesome to see everyone working together as a team to take care of the customers.
