Everything on the menu is delicious and made to order! Hands down the best food I have ever had. The service and ambiance is on point, as well. It is my favorite spot to go in this area. I highly recommend the calamari, Brussel sprouts, and short rib ravioli! You will not be disappointed with anything you try!

Stumbled across this restaurant while traveling. Met the owner Elias and were immediately impressed with his personality, tour of the facility and family pictures. A hard working owner with formal culinary training. The menu is ambitious with many unusual selections and some comfort items. We only did lunch so far that is why we gave it 4 stars, but can...

First time at this out of the way gem. It WON'T be the last. Apps were great, salad too much to eat but too good to leave! Entrees were out of this world!!! Desserts too sinful to miss! Service was exceptional including the owner/chef visiting the table to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. Jen, the waitress was a joy.... More

Every time we have been to Ellias there is always something special on the menu you can not find anywhere else. First class food, service and worth the money.

Love this place. Food and service are exceptional. You have to order the Brussels sprouts. We travel an hour and a half from Dallas, Pa to enjoy a visit with Chef Elias. We often meet our two children and their spouses at the nearby Brook Hollow Winery and then have dinner at Ellias Restaurant.

We ended up here by chance after passing up our more casual destination because it had a long wait time. We were welcomed in by a very friendly hostess. The decor was beautiful and the room was dimly lit. My boyfriend and I thought their bread was possibly the best we'd ever tasted, and we loved our calamari appetizer. We... More

My husband and I ate here last night. It was a bit of a drive but worth it. The pork chop was tender and juicy,fried calamari was tender and crisp. I enjoyed the broccoli rabb ravioli. Food was not overly salted like most restaurants, that was refreshing. Wait staff was genuine and friendly and not "too" attentive even though it... More
