The waitress was quite friendly. I ordered the lamb biriyani, steak frites and summer sangria. The food was of very poor quality. The steak frites was cooked sous vide (medium) but when it arrived it was blue rare and the fat and veins were still white. When we asked to send it back another server came out and loudly insisted the steak was cooked perfectly and we just didn’t understand what sous vide meant and that the temperature was perfect despite me pointing out that it steak was blood red and cold on the inside. We had eaten most of the fries as we were hungry waiting for the waitress to come back and 3 bites of the steak so I was very surprised to see the full price of the meal on my bill. The sangria is was very watered down and overpriced for the quality. I really wanted to enjoy this restaurant, I live close by and have been looking for a new regular spot but I was very embarrassed by the aggression from the staff and the quality of the food.

We sat at table 9 indoors with lovely open windows and light; others on patio. Shared happy hour $1 delicious oysters, flat bread, wonderful brussel sprouts and then I had the caesar salad which I love - shavings of cheese, good real bacon, a light dressing. Service was excellent; our server let us extend happy hour a bit since two members of our party were late. This is a great spot to meet for a patio drink or a full-course dinner and with all the open windows and clear barriers it feels both very safe and not Covidy.

Given COVID-suffering restaurants, E & V was terrific. The plexiglass dividers were very good, both psychologically and generally keeping general restaurant noise down. However, they weren’t much help keeping us from hearing our noisy neighbors. Maybe, in fact, they were great - can’t imagine the noise level without them!
I am used to excellent food at E & V. Meal was good but not up to E & V standards. Salmon over cooked and only mediocre flavor. Pasta got boring after halfway through. E & V usually do better.
A good excuse is that they were terrifically busy. Partial lifting of lockdown!
Anyway, we really like it there and will go back.

Food is amazing. Like really amazing. The price point is higher for portions but that’s a reflection of quality versus quantity. If you like local ingredients, amazing flavours and quality food then this is your place. The only thing that surprised us foodies was the scallops. Amazing taste, but getting two for 16.00 dollars is a little steep for my liking. Four or even three I could justify paying for because of the quality but 8.00 each is not okay.

Great blues soundtrack at a volume that easily allowed conversation and delicious food, Brussels sprouts and scallops as applies, steak and lamb shank. Only the sticky toffee pudding didn’t live up to our high expectations.

We had a great time at Eliot & Vine! Food was delicious, drinks were great, service great as well. Only downside was we had hoped to have more oysters before they ran out! Maybe a supply issue? We had 10 people and there weren’t quite enough to go around. Otherwise a great night!

Had a reservation for 2, I was the only one who showed up. I was still made to feel comfortable and invited. The food was great! Had the scallops for an appetizer, the Mushroom Tornelli for my main, and finished off with the Chocolate Cheesecake for dessert. All were great in my books! The staff was very nice and friendly. If you are looking for a cocktail then I would suggest the Ricky Guava.
