This restaurant is filled with wonderful people serving, hosting and overall taking care of their guests. The food is okay, the service is exceptional. I did see a waitress licking her fingers and then plating desserts, so being mindful of the sanitary measures would be my only suggestion. Otherwise, the meal was good, although don't veer from the menu and... More

The pasta dishes were quite good. Owner/woman, way too talkative, and opionated.. I came to enjoy a glass of wine, and a small meal, and she talked my ear off the whole time..

I have come here several years for a holiday party. The food is mediocre and the service is adequate. While I was at the holiday party my wife was at the bar. She told me that the service was awful. Several times she sat there with an empty glass of beer and was ignored for some time before a bartender... More

Stopped in for lunch. Nice varied menu with specials for lunch. Can do soup and or sandwich, or full meal. Service was welcoming and there were many regulars eating here. Food was very good and desserts looked great, but no room. We will return.

I was recently at Elaine's for a special occasion that had specific plans on ordering pizza for our group to keep things simple. We had made reservations for 6:30 at night. After everyone took time to decide on what pizzas to order, the waitress took our order of four pizzas plus salads for our group. Several minutes later, the waitress... More

Brought to lunch after business in Berlin. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. Service was very good. Food was excellent. Options range from typical pizza palace to Italian restaurant. Everyone enjoyed their selections. Onion Soup was very good. If I lived in the area I would return for dinner. Very large place with banquet area.

This was our first visit. It's located on the Berlin Turnpike, and is bright and clean, and has an interesting dining balcony (closed that evening). We had their pizza and swordfish. Swordfish was a bit fishy but good. We went on a Sunday evening and found the place had few diners. Despite that, service was a bit slow. The dessert--creme... More

Elaine's is our go-to restaurant. We eat there more than at any other restaurant. We love the food and the variety. Excellent Italian, steaks and fish. The pizza is wonderful too. Dino, the owner, and all of the staff are great! Service is excellent and friendly. We highly recommend Elaine's.

We found Elaine's by accident as we were trying to get into another restaurant in the area with a 2 hour wait. We decided to find something else. We saw Elaine's on the way and decided to try in. Our server was very pleasant, the portions were perfect, and the prices were decent. It was a nice surprise!
