Elia has done a great job adjusting and the tents placed outside and the ambience were beautiful. We felt distanced from other parties and the overall environment was comfortable yet buzzing!

Outdoor dining here rivals no other... absolutely stunning surroundings and very comfortable. Very nice wine by the glass selection with a fish and seafood menu that has so much to offer. First time here, just moved into the area and will definitely go back.

Went to dinner for my bday with my husband. It was excellent. Food and service were lovely. It was a bit overpriced but since we haven’t been out to dinner in over 3 months we didn’t care much. Overall great experience.

Overall it's a beautiful place to have dinner...prices are higher than most restaurants with similar menus. I also was a bit disappointed in the owners response to having us wait outside in the driveway until the rest of the guest show- considering circumstance maybe try being more respectful.

This place was a piece of paradise! We partook in their outdoor dining due to COVID-19 and they really went above and beyond with their outdoor tent and outdoor chandeliers. It felt like we were on vacation. The food and service was outstanding.

Outdoor setup was really well done. Food and service were great.
Pita bread with Greek spreads was really good. Did not care for the Baklava, it was very dry.

The place is great and food is very good but the service is terrible. This is the second time I have been here and the service has not improved. They take a long time to service you and even longer getting the food. I do not understand why it takes so long to get drinks. There needs to be a serious training session for servers

Did not disappoint!!! Absolutely gorgeous. They made out door dining feel like I was on a Greek island. Service was excellent and the food was delicious from appetizers to desert. Drinks were great as well. So glad I chose this place for one of our first nights out in some time.

Always my favorite place to go, and of course they did not disappoint! With out door dining they did an outside job, it looks beautiful! The ambience and feel is just as great as inside. I try something different every time I go and the food is always on point. I promise if you go, this will be your new favorite place!

First real dinner since Covid! Elia is amazing. The food delicious. Fresh. Creative and a stunning presentation. The outside decor and seating was outstanding. A little slice of South Beach in my backyard. Made me forget all the craziness that is taking place in the world. Thank you!

Elia did a wonderful job creating an outdoor oasis despite COVID. Tables are spaced apart, and the atmosphere is simply stunning - it truly transports you to the Mediterranean. As always, the food was fresh and delicious! Highly recommend and will be returning very soon!

The food is delicious and the outdoor seating is beautiful. It wasn’t too hot and it’s walled off from the street. It’s fine dining so it isn’t a bargain, but great for special occasions when you are willing to pay for a great restaurant experience.

I’ve been here twice since restaurants opened back up in NJ. Our first time was wonderful so when we returned, the service was too slow. The waiter was very kind but it was tough to get his attention. We will be going back, hope the service is more aware of the guests that’s all. Food is always great.

We were able to get outdoor seating for our anniversary. The setup of outdoor seating beautiful. Spaced 6 feet apart from tables. I would hope they will always have this setup in the future. The food as always was excellent. A bit overpriced for the shared whole seafood. Otherwise excellent service and food! Will be returning!

Under the current COVID environment Elia provided and exceptional evening. While all precautionary measures we in place, the kitchen and wait staff provided outstanding presentation and service. I am confident that as safety protocols are lifted Elia will be even more magnificent!
