I can't say it enough how good brunch was at Sustenio. From the moment I arrived I was treated with class. The valet crew was so kind and pointed me in the right direction, with a smile. The hostess seated me quickly and the wait staff was tops. The food! OMG great omelet bar. all of the ingredients were laid... More

Friendly staff. Only one bar tender on our visit which made service a little slow. Happy Hour runs to 7 pm and include drinks and snacks. Very nice establishment. I have included a Valentine's day special for 2017.

We had dinner there to celebrate our anniversary and Becca made us and our evening feel truly special. She was a great help with food and wine selection and treated us to champagne and dessert to add to our celebration. At our breakfast,... More

Four of us had dinner at Sustenio on Christmas Day. We all chose the prime rib on the prix fixe menu. One person had to send her plate back, because her meat was served cold. My prime rib was just barely warm. We asked for bread and were told it was not available. Our server was very pleasant and efficient,... More

The food was excellent! The servers, EDDIE and NANCY were cordial, pleasant, and on top of everyone's needs. I wish to thank pastry chef, SOFIA, for my delightful and delicious butterscotch pudding and gingerbread cookie! My husband and I made reservations for brunch on Christmas day. We decided to make reservations after our dinner experience. Looking forward to it!

We had our annual office Christmas Party at Sustenio at the Eilan Hotel this past weekend on Saturday, 12/10/16. The hotel and restaurant served as a nice backdrop for the festivities and Nancy and Eddie were terrific servers for the evening. They were attentive with the dinner service and no one had an empty glass all night at our table.... More

Sustenio is located inside the Eilan Hotel. Elian is a family hotel, yet I was very surprised they do not cater to children. They do not have a kids menu or kid friendly items. We tried several of their dishes. My favorite was the Tuna Ceviche, it was delicious! They had other items that were not bad but I was... More
