This Lebanese diner is well appointed and warmly decorated. Our party of 3 was seated in a cozy booth . Warm pita and oil was brought to the ranked ad we glanced the wine list and menu. I appreciated the fact that a beautiful door and decorating camouflaged the kitchen entrance . A fire lit oven baked e pita bread.... More

We love it. The bartenders are the best around and they have the best fattoush salad in Michigan. Want another best, the ribs: to die for. Don't miss this spot ...

We love the hummus, shawarma and rice pudding. Pita straight from the brick oven. Great scene, always crowded- love this place for lunch or dinner

I had dinner by myself tonight after an extended work day. I usually sit @ the bar when I am solo. I find that service is more reliable. I enjoyed a splendid bowl of chicken soup. It's one of the best recipes in the county. Add in a "fatoosh" salad and "beef kabobs", it was a very tasty meal. Service... More

You won't go wrong dining at Elie's. This is definitely one of the best Lebanese restaurants in the area. Their hummus, taboulee, kibbee nayyeh are amazing. Lamb chops are out of this world. Every item we have ordered on the menu has been delicious. The food is fresh, fresh, fresh. The restaurant is nicely appointed and has outdoor seating when... More

We came here for the restaurant week so the food is only ok. The service is very good and the price for the special is good for Birmingham.

Had lunch today, Lamb Shish Kafta and Lamb Warak Enab for spouse. The Shish Kafta was served with grilled zucchini and carrot and a mound of rice with a wonderful chunky tomato sauce. The salad was lack luster with unripe hot house tomato (and honesty, it's tomato season in Michigan) and the dressing was nondescript. We had to ask for... More

Ate here with a girlfriend I had the fatoush salad and hummus, she had the chicken shawarma . The chicken was overcooked and dry. The hummus was OK but not the best, it had a different flavor but I can't put my finger on what was different about it. That the fatoush salad was good, but would've preferred a few... More

I was told this could be one of the best Lebanese Restaurants in the area. Well whoever told me this he was wrong. The location is nice, view is great but the food is average and very pricy compared to many many middle Eastern eateries in the Detroit area. Service was good, and there was no complain. I would say... More

The patio is a perfect place to relax, take in the fresh air and enjoy the local atmosphere and have a meal of nicely prepared Mediterranean cuisine. We started with the Mixed Appetizer which included Hummus, Taboulee, Baba Gannouge and fresh made Pita bread. The presentation was great is each of the choices were very good. For lunch we ordered...
