We've been to Elixir dozens of times and never have we had a bad experience. Service is always friendly, food is top quality and the owner is almost always the friendly face that greets you at the door. This is one of the few places I would say try anything on the menu I you won't be disappointed.

We stopped here on our way up to Montreal. Unbelievable dinner- and the waitress was so wonderful. We got the fall harvest salad, chicken liver mousse, and shrimp scampi. We split all three and the kitchen put everything on to two plates for us- just such an awesome touch. To finish it off we had the chocolate lava cake. Delicious... More

Let’s cut to the chase – we had an outstanding meal at Elixir, I cannot recommend the ‘Cocoa Dusted Petits Filets Mignon’ highly enough (and I know my steak…), it's excellent value. We called in on a very quiet Tuesday evening in early November. It’s a fairly discreet building from the outside (in the old train yard), so trust the... More

Business dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the sophistication of the food. The building is old and is a juxtaposition against such amazing food. Highly recommend. Casual atmosphere with a sophisticated menu. Preparation and service were impeccable.

This restaurant was suggested by the innkeepers where we stayed and it was a great one! The building is a former train depot so it was a great atmosphere. It is set back from the street so easy to pass by. We did have a reservation which I would recommend. Our food was delicious! I had shrimp scampi which was... More

Found this restaurant on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The menu is limited, but has excellent options. The food was well prepared and delicious. We did not have a reservation on a Saturday night, but the owner was able to fit us in. It was quite busy, so reservations are recommended.

Certainly this is the best restaurant in the city. We sat at the bar 2 nights for drinks and the bartender was great. This was a great respite from our horrible stay at the Hotel Coolidge. The food looked fantastic and we would definitely come back to this restaurant.

Dinner was both well presented and flavorful. My wife had the Filet Mignon and I the Pork Tenderloin. In both cases the meat, the vegetable, and the accompanying sauce were perfectly done. The Bananas Foster Bread Pudding with Roasted Cinnamon Ice Cream will cause me to try to duplicate it at home. A well balanced and affordable wine list and... More

Based on great reviews, I expected much better food and service than we experienced at Elixir. First, the host (dressed nicely and wearing crocs) seated a couple without a reservation before us without explanation. Second, the menu was odd (although good for gluten-free options). Six of the four mains came with a side of potatoes, although each side of spuds... More
