We went to Elia's to celebrate my birthday. We had a great time. The wait staff was wonderful; the food generous and delicious. I had the grill sampler; she had the giro plate. We also had the hummous with veggie appetizer. It all was great.

We were pressed for time before a ND game so we ordered take out from this place. It was good, everyone enjoyed what they ordered from combos to grape leaves with and without meat. Good stuff!

I saw an article in the paper about this restaurant, so my husband and I decided to try it.The decor is very interesting and the place is clean and well arranged. The ingredients are touted as fresh, and everything we ordered was good. It bothers me when we are the only people eating in a restaurant and this was a... More

We have had two very nice meals at Elia's with friends that eat there frequently. By far some of the best hummus and babaganoush in the region, rivaling any restaurant in Chicago. The kibbeh and falafel were to die for. The garlic spread was fantastic as well as the sauces served with various dishes. The mixed grill was delicious as... More

We've made Elia's our dinner destination of choice on our annual trips to Notre Dame. It's the perfect spot to hit after a Friday evening pep rally, especially if you've made a reservation. (However, the host hooked us up during our last visit, sliding us into a table that opened up early so he could honor his other reservations.) The... More

Based on Recommendation by visitors on Trip Advisor, I felt this would be a Win win situation. Nice ambiance with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Pita Bread was cold and tough. Salad was fantastic. Generous portion and very flavorful. Steak Kabob: Wrong choice as the Filet Chunks were very small and overcooked. My request had been for Medium. Rice was... More

Fresh food, nice selection, including gluten free choices. Love the garlic spread so much! Tasteful but simple decor.

I've been going to Elia's since before they moved to their beautiful new building. I kind of miss the small, family-owned restaurant feel that it had before but the new location is spacious, beautiful, and very atmospheric. Their food is consistently amazing. The owner is extremely gracious and a joy to chat with. If you have any allergies or dietary... More

From Chicago visiting family and was very pleased with freshness and flavor of all salad and meats. The mixed grill was delicious. The houmas and tabouli was as fresh and favorable as we have ever had. Service was very good. Beer and wine only. We will be back for sure!

Absolutely freshest possible ingredients make for great food. Obviously family run, you cannot go wrong here. Falafel is as good if not better than NYC. The only song is I'd like to see the gyro meat come off a spit rather than prepackaged strips. Didn't matter through the tatziki was exceptional. Don't hesitate
