With the closing of Rubin's restaurant, this seemed like a reasonable option based on the menu choices. Regrettably, the advertised menu did not live up to its promise. Food was barely adequate. No substitutions were allowed. The restaurant was noisy with no control exercised over young kids yelling and running around. Service was slow. Though the person in charge at... More

This restaurant is pricey; the pizza is okay. It's the only kosher pizza store around so there is absolutely no competition. They've added sushi recently, which is nice, and they also redid their decor a bit.

Wonderful kosher pizza and other fast food restaurant. It seems that whenever I visit my daughter in Boston, we eat at least 3 or 4 meals at Cafe Eilat. I have had pizza, salads, fried fish, and sushi there over the many years I have gone there. The owner knows all the regulars by name, and it seems that I... More

I thought this was a restaurant. It's a pizza store that has Pizza, Pasta and other dishes. Store is large. Pizza was average.

This place is Okay for pizza but not recommended for anything else. The salads are nothing but iceberg lettuce, the fish is tiny, overpriced, and poorly cooked, and the pasta is slopped on the plate with unrecognizable sauce (we ordered penne ala vodka and got something that was spicy, bright red, and had a pile of half cooked onions in...

Cafe Eilat's food is ok for an out-of-town kosher pizza shop. They do have sushi which I've been told is pretty good. If you want pizza, you will get better and fresher pizza by ordering a whole pie instead of getting slices.

It's a great non meat Kosher place. The price is fair for Kosher food, the pizza is good, and it's a great solution for a big crowd with Kosher restrictions

Although this is called a "cafe," it seemed more like a pizza store to my friend and I. But they have a nice menu with other items besides pizza, like sushi and salad. The food was very good and the service was pretty quick. We took our food to go but just from taking a quick glance around, it seemed... More

Ordered a normal cheese pizza to go. The sauce was dark in color. The dough was not cooked all the way. There was not enough cheese or sauce. It basically was horrible in every way. They didn't even seal the pizza box with tape, so it opened a bit in the car. I would not recommend this place and I... More
