Management don't care about you they only try to accomodate as many people as possible. Waiters are not coming to check if the food is ok and when you talk to them they kind of ignore you. They clear the plates even if the others are still eating. You have the feeling that they want you to eat fast pay and go you don't even have to ask for the bill and it is on the table Never again Ronit Dinour

Great neighborhood restaurant undaunted by the 2nd Avenue Subway. Food is great. Service is great. Crowd is great and the noise level is what you would expect......high energy. Dale loves the risotto. I think the liver with sauteed onions is best in NY. We brought one of our 24 year old friends and she was very comfortable with the mix of generations.

A masterpiece of hubris and conceit, Elio's caters to the rich and famous, which means they couldnt care less about the rest of us. There are at least a dozen places in the neighborhood with better cuisine, and decidedly friendlier service. Go to see Matt, Woody, and Tom, but dont expect a warm welcome or anything resembling a good value proposition. Hey look, theres Katie BFD.

Elio's hasn't shared anything with you.
