Mediterranean food in the US seems to be hit and miss too often- Elia's knocked everything out of the park. The stuffed grape leaves were the second best I've ever had, and given that the best were in Greece, that's an accomplishment. My wife is still talking about the Foul Moudamas a day later- if you like beans you owe... More

Becca, our waiter, was delightful with prompt and very attentive service througout our meal. The food was excellent. We started with drinks - a nice wine and beer selection. We shared pita and hoummos while we... More

Great service when we visited on a Thursday night. Food was very flavorful and tasty. I got the vegetarian platter and my dad got the meat platter. We had the hummus and pita for an appitizer.

The food is always good, especially the schwarma, but the garlic paste and pita is my (and my daughter's) favorite. Our friend ordered the grape leaves and she gets them every time she visits.

Our waitress tonight was Jenny. She did a wonderful job! My husband and I love how fresh everything tastes. The food came out quick and tasted fabulous. We order the hoummos and veggies, the meat grape leaf rolls, and the grill combo. We like to get multiple things and share so we can try a little of everything!

Waiter brought us water which was room temperature with no ice. Ordered Gyros, was okay not great. Meat was pre formed (Sliced too perfect, just like the kits you find in the stores) not cut off the rack. Waiter never came to refresh our drinks. Took forever to get him to come and give us our check. Better Gyros down... More

My wife and I had the chance to eat at Elia's this past weekend and were very happy with our experience. The staff was very welcoming and friendly and the food was definitely worth a return trip. We especially liked the 'spinach pie' and the baclava. The kabobs were also very tasty. The prices are very fair and below what... More

We eat lunch there every week, this place is one of our favorites. They serve delicious home style Mediterranean food. We especially like grape leaf rolls, pitas (triangle shaped meat or vegetable patties), and desserts. Pistachio baklava is out of this world! I don't remember how they call the walnut dessert, but it is wonderful, too. The service and atmosphere... More

Restaurant closes at 9 pm and I came in after 8 pm on a Wed night to find it quite empty. Open seating with dim lights and beautiful pictures on the wall. One server for the restaurant, very pleasant and quick service. Menu is pretty straightforward of typical Mediterranean dishes. Lentil soup is very good in a large bowl. Wine... More
