This place was recommended as being vegan friendly. The menu even stated that dietary requirements could be catered for, so we thought it was worth a visit. On visiting the server seemed very confused between gluten free and vegan, and eventually said that they could do pasta or a salad. Not wanting just a salad, I told her that I'd... More

Stopped in here for desserts and found a great place. Nice atmosphere, great music (and at a volume which allows you to carry on a conversation!). Had pistachio cheesecake and a chocolate raspberry cake...both great. What was EXCELLENT was my chocolate martini. Bartenders definitely enjoy their jobs which always make the experience fun.

Eli's is a wonderful restaurant and bar, on the outskirts of the Minneapolis downtown, that combines a downtown sophistication with a neighborhood bar feel. Close to the theaters and the Twins stadium. Unpretentious food, well prepared, and well served. Great wings and salads. Reasonably priced. I do there often.

Excellent dinner in a nice atmosphere. The crab cakes with spinach and asparagus was outstanding. Peach-blackberry cobbler was also good, but could have been improved with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Would make eating here again a priority.

O.K. not your usual combo, but individually the best around. Each time its different yet better. Choices of cheesecake are super good. I had pistachio with raspberry compote. Enjoy

I went to Eli's in NE with 2 girl friends for dinner/happy hour one night a few weeks ago. We all enjoyed our meals a lot and the atmosphere was great. It would be a great date night location. Its dark and cozy but not too dark that you cant see your menu. I had a breakfast sandwich for dinner.... More

We had dinner there last night, Elis West is a cozy spot and the menu is always varied with daily specials. We had a newer server, Maggie, and she was super!!! We are never disapointed when we dine there.
