    Food was excellent but server was not attentive. When you are charging your prices, I would expect better service. I had to ask for more coffee and the coffee came without milk which we had to leave the table to seek milk. His service did not match the quality of food but it could prevent me from returning.

    Eliot & VineResponded on November 25, 2022Thank you for the feedback. We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your meal. We're sorry to hear you didn't feel appropriately attended to and assure you we will reiterate to our servers the importance of attentiveness. We look forward to your next visit and anticipate that you will experience great service upon your return.

    I went in for an early dinner (and to up the buck-a-shuck happy hour special!) and the oysters were so fresh and delicious. Special shout out for the house made chilli sauce and mignonette, which were spicy and refreshing! The following pork belly dish was divine. My server was so nice and the service was timely and unobtrusive. If I was a local, this would definitely be a regular stop.

    We love this restaurant and have dined here many times. However, last night, the service was a bit slow, the food quality not up to their normal standards and the portions seemed a bit smaller than last time. One of us wanted an expresso but the machine was out of order and another asked for a dessert on the menu that was sold out. I will certainly return again as we love this restaurant but hope the next experience is much better.

    Eliot & VineResponded on November 10, 2022Hi Peter, sorry to hear your experience was not up to the usual standard. We assure you this is not normal and will pass along your concerns to our staff. We're hoping to get our espresso machine back from the repair place soon. Thank you for choosing to give us another shot in the future. Your next visit will meet the Eliot & Vine standards you're accustomed to.

    Service was amazing! Food came quickly. Loved the atmosphere. Loved the gnocchi and Risotto. Haddock was a touch dry but still good. Plating was nicely done. Desserts were delicious. The ice cream cut the chocolate peanut butter tart nicely!

    one of my favorite places in the city! Their menu changes all the time too so there are always new dishes to try. You can tell that their chef puts time into the dishes and every dish is made thoughtfully and with so much care! Never been disappointed. The servers and staff are all wonderful too.

    The appetizers were very good, however the main course (Halibut and Gnocchi) were not good. The halibut was very over done and the gnocchi was uncooked and the dish had no flavour. Only one of us had a glass of wine and the bill came to $160. Over priced for the quality of the food.

    Eliot & VineResponded on October 26, 2022Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear you felt let down by the quality of your mains. I assure you we will pass this message along to chef to insure it doesn't happen again. Our food and wine are priced to reflect the cost of the quality ingredients used. As you probably know rising costs have had an impact on all consumers including restaurants. We often receive high praise of our food and your encounter with your mains is not the standard at E&V, we hope you give us another chance.

    Always a delight to be here! The updated menu was exciting- duck crepes, gnocchi, halibut and risotto were all first rate! Even though it was busy for a Tuesday, we were never without attentive service. It’s my favorite “local” place to bring friends or just to enjoy happy hour. So glad it made the Top 50 in Curated! Well deserved!

    Our experience at Eliot & Vine was quite nice. Our server was fantastic and very accommodating when we added another appetizer at short notice. She was very knowledgeable on the menu and preferred selections. For us, the pork belly and burger were just OK however the duck, mussels and coconut cheesecake were wonderfully prepared. Will definitely visit this location again.

    Made a reservation for a Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary. Arrived and our table was not ready. We were directed to sit at the bar till it was but not asked if we would like a drink or anything for our wait. We were eventually seated, between two larger loud groups, meaning we had to scream across our little table to speak to each other. We ordered a "sharable" charcuterie board that was far from sharable unless you are sharing with a small child. We both had decided we wanted sangria so opted for a pitcher, which gave us both a glass and a half. So the math did not add up. Our dessert however, was delicious. Over all, the food was enjoyable but the quantity did not reflect the cost by any means. Was okay enough that we are not completely disappointed in having tried this place for the first time, but not a pleasant enough experience to go back or recommend to anyone.

    Eliot & VineResponded on October 5, 2022Thank you for the feedback and happy anniversary. Saturdays can be our busiest nights and sometimes if tables take longer than anticipated it delays resetting them for the next party. We're sorry to hear you weren't offered a drink while you waited. As you likely noticed upon arriving, our restaurant is small and that can often mean a more lively environment on busier nights. While I understands prices can seem high they reflect the current high cost of food and fare wages.
