Amazing service and food!!
There is a minimum standard of service you expect when dining at a restaurant like Elisa, this minimum was barely met. We came here for a graduation celebration and our server barely acknowledged us. Very disappointed and won’t be returning. Would not recommend if you want to enjoy a special occasion with loved ones.
Hubbys birthday. We had a lovely dinner, the spot prawn risotto was amazing lobster was incredible and the steaks were yummy. Thank you for making his day special.
Service was 5 star. Our waiter was quite knowledgable and recommended we do more of a family style with our group of 6. Tomahawk was listed as 50oz on the menu, ended up going with a 65oz and was not disappointed. Quite expensive but the food is worth it. Great place to celebrate a great occasion.
Eduardo is an excellent server, he added all the special touches and made my wife’s birthday extra memorable. We will request for him in the future. Food was perfect, this is one of our favourite restaurants in the city. Can’t ask for anything else.
Was high expectations since couple friends said their steak were very good. As their price are close to Gotham. Steak were not up to my expectations with the price. We ordered 4 different areas of ribs eye. A little salty to my taste. We have to pack some left over and one steak with bob that not fit in the take out box. As the price is that high, I will expect more. Try once is enough.
Food was good but the steaks came out a bit cold. That was quickly rectified. Server was great. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Overall a pretty good night.
Perhaps my expectations for this restaurant were too high due to my friends having such high regard for the food here. When we first sat down, however, we were not greeted by a server for a long time. When a man did come to offer us water and to ask us whether it was our first time here (it was), we expected him to tell us about the restaurant, but he did not. Instead, we were greeted by a second server who handed us the menu and proceeded to, not so much tell us about the menu, but read off the menu in front of us. After his recommendations for steak, I still had to Google what steaks we should choose. The steaks were mediocre - my fiance had the blue dot sirloin and I had the brant lake farm wagyu flat iron. My steak was drenched in a sauce (it wasn't clear whether it was jus or just some extra brown sauce) and completely covered any meat taste on my steak. My fiance's sirloin was good but nothing special and, in my opinion, not worth the price. His also had less sauce (jus?) which meant I could taste more of the meat flavour in his steak. A nice touch was that they gave us a dessert sampler since we said we were celebrating our anniversary. However, I'm not sure I will be back unless my friends insist on coming here.
The service was great! That’s why they got 2 stars. I’ve tried a lot of steaks and was very disappointed with the food here. Bone in tenderloin was stringy. High end restaurant and they put olmeca in my drink. There’s better places to go in Vancouver for a good steak.
Great food. Excellent place to meet up with friends.
It is a beautiful venue - we went to celebrate an Anniversary and did not receive any detail for it. Waiter said congratulations but a table close to us received a complimentary cake with a Happy Anniversary on it; more generous waiter I guess
Steaks were very tasty, did not like the halibut
Very expensive experience, sides are all extra and portions are small
Not sure if I will be back
Great evening. Only complaint is the bench seating was abit uncomfortable.
The steak was ok. The ambience is perfect for dates-great lighting. Good atmosphere.
Loved it all together it was absolutely perfect!!!
Clean high end steakhouse, the server are knowledgeable and assertive. Highly recommend the tenderloin, they does it very very well.
Amazing meal with fantastic service! We last had steak in Buenos Aires and this rivalled that meal! Highly recommend!
Very obnoxious table disturbed other diners. Manager left it to go on much too long and the patrons of that table shouted all the way out the door. A sour note to an otherwise sweet evening. (Which reminds me, we and patrons at other tables left before dessert and coffee.)
Great steak place. Highly varied clientele, with a lot of families and female groups. Big contrast to the other fancy steak joints here like Hy’s and Gotham. On the expensive side, the steaks were perfectly cooked and the flavour of the beef and the cooking were among the best I’ve had for steaks. The dairy cow steaks were very good and the Tomahwak steak was excellent. Sides were good. Chicken was also really good, and they apparently sell out if it early pretty often. I treat myself for steak only occasionally, and I’d go back without hesitation.
It was a fantastic meal! Great ciders too! Just glad we weren’t seated next to the kitchen like last time. Man that was hot! Our table was perfect this time!
Excellent food and service as always
My husband took me out for an early birthday dinner here at Elisa and we both enjoyed a lovely evening. Our server Luca was absolutely fantastic! His suggestions were perfect and we will definitely be back for another amazing meal!
Really nice restaurant for special occasions. Will definitely go back!
This was my second time there and it was a bit disappointing. I'd say overall was decent. The first time I went there I was really impressed with both the food and service. Second time around it seemed like they were off their game.
Absolutely spectacular! One of the best fine dining experiences I have had in a while. The restaurant is beautiful, elegant, great service, and high quality meal. It was our first time visiting the restaurant and our server Miguel was so kind, knowledgeable and made such great recommendations. The Yellowfin Tuna Tartare was delicious (still drooling), the steaks were next to none, and all the sides (mushroom risotto, truffle mac’n’cheese, broccolini) complimented the steaks perfectly. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
Excellent food, very attentive staff, robust wine list
Son’s 19th birthday dinner.
I would give 5 stars for the food, except the tomahawk steak we had was a disappointment. We had to throw half away because it was all fat. It was cooked rare when we asked medium rare.
Tuna tartare and all the sides we ordered was delicious.
Service was great, ambience was great.
Probably won’t return for tomahawk steak.
Very very very bad service
While the service and wine recommendation was excellent my medium rare ribeye that I ordered was definitely rare. Our appy was the tartare trio which was delicious but every tartare I’ve ever had stayed together on the cracker while this was crumbly and falling apart. Overall a bit of a disappointment considering the $400 we dropped. We’ve had better for less
We had a wonderful dinner - the service was outstanding. The menu choice was excellent and we absolutely loved our dinners. Highly recommend.
Had a wonderful experience from start to finish. Staff are very welcoming, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Food was amazing, would highly recommend!
I really like everything about my dining experience. The restaurant is beautiful, servers were on their game. The cocktails were outstanding, starters were amazing and the sides were fantastic but the steak was a miss. Had the Alberta 12oz Rib-eye. It was cooked perfectly medium rare, sliced and presented beautifully but the cut of meat was a total miss. It was tough, had very little marbling. Frankly I have had way better Rib-eyes at the Keg. I did mention it to the waiter and he suggested I should have picked a steak from a different region. I truly expected better.
Myself and 3 friends ordered the tomahawk medium-rare and it was below-average at best. Great presentation but severely lacked flavour and finesse. Waitress was also somewhat inexperienced and maybe this is why we felt she was being rude but when we said we were thinking of getting a red she replied with, "we have a lot of red wine on the menu" ... cool, any suggestions perhaps? Appetizers were great, probably the highlight of the dinner, which says a lot about this "steakhouse". We ordered the baked alaskan for dessert, wish we hadn't. If I wanted a dry flavourless cake with ice cream I'd go to Baskin Robbins.
Our new favourite restaurant downtown. We will be back!
Birthday for my friend’s 22nd birthday! Best steakhouse in Vancouver. Period.
Perfect... favourite new place in town.
Amazing food and excellent service. Our waiter, Luca, was very knowledgeable and made it a very enjoyable experience.
