A great place to relax and have a nice meal. The smoked salmon appetizer was the highlight of our meal, but the eggplant was also quite tasty. We also received an enormous plate of complimentary garlic bread. By the time our main courses arrived, we were almost full; we should have ordered only one entree! We packed up our tower... More

We went to Elixir for dinner before a show and we were blown away with the food and service. Everything is made to order, so no prepared food, just the best quality and freshness you can get. I recommend the escargot and Cox au Vin! Delicious ❤

One of them seemed to be friends of the people that worked there. So there was a lot of time spent at that table. The food was very good, I had the... More

This is definitely one of our fav spots to have dinner. The food and flavours are wonderful. Must try's: Escargot is our favourite appetizer.. Nobody does it like Pirooz. Fav entres are his Duck Confit, Lamb & Veal Marsala dishes. The owner is so friendly and always takes the time to come out of the kitchen to greet us... Love... More
