Food was very yummy. We had the foie gras, oyster Rockefeller, and duck and would recommend any of them. Atmosphere and service were just ok, a 3. But we will go back again for the food.

My husband and I dined here for a special celebration, and Elaine's made it special indeed. We both ordered a 3 course price fixed menu that came with our choice of appetizer, entree and dessert along with a wine pairing with each course. We had...More
