First time. Inviting atmosphere as you walk in. Very friendly host. Attractive bar and dining area in the same room. Lots of wood, well done.
Extensive wine list with some real bargains. The food was excellent. Two clean plates. The desserts were excellent. Two absolutely clean plates.
Service was friendly and efficient.
It was a cold night. We sat next to an out side wall. We were warm and comfortable except for our feet which were a little cool. It’s an old building with heat circulation issues I guess.
It was a great meal and an excellent experience. We will be back.

Elixir has been our go-to restaurant for special occasions and date nights for years. We are always greeted with a friendly smile by the owners, and the servers are always terrific. The seasonal rotation of the menu is creative and takes advantage of local ingredients. The food is delicious. Our favorite appetizers are the mussels in curry sauce and the truffle fries. The salads are always fresh and unique. Amazingly priced wines. Accomodating to gluten free diets, including gluten free bread. Delicious desserts. Can't say enough good things about Elixir!!!

The service and the food were great. Scallops is a rare treat, and nobody does them better. The lamb shanks were very tender, with the meat literally falling off the bone, juicy and nicely seasoned. Bravo.

We have eaten here many times and always had a great meal. Service was solid during this visit but our server was spread thin and never poured our wine and only checked in on hour our meal was as we were finishing.

Parking is really an issue so be prepared.

Highly recommend.

Went to Elixir for our first time and found the entire experience memorable. The food was excellent, whether the starter course, the main course, the sides, the dessert, everything. Service was attentive but not overbearing and bartender mixed me a custom drink and delivered it to the table in a couple of minutes despite a busy night.

Elixir is our favorite local restaurant, so it was an easy choice where we could celebrate our anniversary.
The calamari was a bit spicy, but we were warned about it when we ordered. We had scallops with a delicious sweet potato hash, and the lamb shank served on mashed potato and a delicious sauce. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and wonderfully presented. We topped off the meal with a delicious warm apple crisp with ice cream. The wine list is extensive with a lot of variety. Best of all, it is priced fairly ! Jane and Skip have created a wonderful restaurant with imaginative cooks and a serving staff that is attentive, friendly and efficient. We recommend Elixir highly, but do make a reservation so you won't be waiting to be seated.

We were treated graciously when we arrived by the host with even a tip for parking on weekends. Enjoyed the wine list even good french wines. Food was excellent. We were going to the theater and our entrees were delayed and the host gave us 2 complimentary entrees for our next visit. Totally unexpected but appreciated.

Everything was perfect. The service was attentive without being overbearing, and very considerate of getting us out in time for the theater. The entrees were delicious, and none of us left any food at all on our plates as the portions were just right. The sound level was a bit loud, but we were still able to talk comfortably.
