What else can I say? We came here for the first time a few years ago, and it just keeps getting more crowded, for good reason. Usual Greek specialties don't disappoint, and are generous. Prices are reasonable. Friendly hostess and waitstaff. House wine is fine. You'll feel welcome and well-fed. Sorry for sparse menu information; I usually go for the... More

The best, the best.....did I say "the best" grilled octopus you will get anywhere. We have a family member who is a fine chef who lives in Florida and travels extensively. The first time we dined together there, he was hooked! He never visits us without wanting to eat at Elia and he does not want to share his octopus... More

This was probably our 15th visit to this restaurant. Consistently good food, large portions, and BYO with no corkage fee on Mon-Wed. Great tsaziki, moussaka and a variety of vegetarian dishes. Really nothing to criticize. Great local find!

We frequent this restaurant often, it is our go to when I don't feel like cooking or want to keep local. It is always consistent!!! The grilled octopus is a must and rivals high end NYC eateries. Adan is an amazing host/server and will quickly become a friend!!! Enjoy

Very casual place with really good, fresh food, reasonably priced. The owner is so attentive; we went twice when our cousins were visiting (they liked it a lot), and on the second visit (I had mentioned that they were from out of town) he sent over a complimentary dessert and was genuinely concerned that they enjoy their meal. Very reasonable... More

We stopped in here for dinner during a long road trip recently- my husband, 2 children ages 8 and 5, and me. Although it was prime time on a Saturday night and the place was packed, the hostess was very gracious and found a spot for us. We had several appetizers for our meal- the feta, grilled octopus, falafel, one... More

Me and my husband decided to spontaneously have lunch here this past Saturday and we were pleasantly surprised. The service was quick and efficient. They brought us warm pita bread with olives marinated in olive oil and garlicky seasoning. I didn't have any of it but my husband was raving about it. Since we aren't very familiar with Greek food...

One waiter & one backup - Very had to get his attention to order or for anything. Gyro was okay, not like it used to be. I had heard the place was sold to Crotians, not sure if this happened yet or not.

I relive my Greek vacation when I eat here. Mike is the nicest guy. The food is always fresh and delicious! I love the paphos salad. The branzino is delish. There are no bad choices on the menu. Yummy!

I cannot rave about this place enough. As a pescatarian, I have many eating options here, but I always get the same three things. Grilled Hallumi with tomatoes. This dish is the perfect balance of the two. Their hummus, which is thick and flavorful, and for my main course I always get shrimp souvlaki. Typically, you never see shrimp. It's... More
