Loved the lively setting, service and the bar. The food looked great and it was good to spend some down time there in a relaxed but sophisticated bunch of patrons. Great drinks! Great location.

Went there for a quick lunch with my baby and the staff couldn't have been nicer. The orders were quickly taken and a high chair was provided. I love the choices on their children's menu! And you can order kid's portions of adult meals for half the price. My brown crab and avocado salad was so good that my son... More

Having fallen for too many poor wine tasting around town, let me say that the folks in Ely know what to do it right. Ely is a favourite of mine, being close to my job and not far from home. Everything these folks do, from service to food to events is outstanding. Nothing gets short changed. Ely is celebrating their... More

Nice building and staff who try hard but menu is limited. Service is good but this place really suits large groups / crowds. Our food choice (two burgers) was good and the wine list is fairly good. Overall, we wouldnt be going back there but if you are in the area and want to stay local its not bad.

Not only did the cab driver not know where this address was, neither did the people on the street. We finally found it, but thought it really wasn't worth the trip, mainly because the menu was not to our taste."Irish Modern"??? What's that? Young diners would enjoy this more---hip decor, but too dark for us. Service uneven.

I was hungry and rushing to the meeting today while I've decided to stop for a quick bite at the Ely Bar & Brasserie today. I walked in and there was a Receptionist sitting at her desk. As I've arrived, she looked at me without a smile on her face, I had to say hello first, and I've asked for... More

All looked very impressive and in a good location. In the event the service was OK, getting the order wrong, and the food not living up to the price tag.
