Eclectic and yum!

Ate at Elaine's over a work meeting and was pleased by the variety and taste. We ate A LOT of sushi and it was all delicious. Service was good, too.

The food is normally pretty good here, and the service can be spotty. For example, we went for lunch at 11:45, and were turned away because, "we are not ready to open yet." Really? The sign on your door says you open at 11:30. The sashimi is fresh and delicious.

Came here using a groupon. Building is quaint and set back from the street. Parking lot is a half block away. It doesn't say it in the title but this is a Chinese restaurant. Nice selection of items and the prices are in the mid-teens for Entrees. They also have pre-fix but Groupon is not good for this. We ordered... More

Very nice space. Attractive bar ares with lounge chairs and couch. Service was attentive and the food was prepared very well. I would definitely go again. We did not order the Peking duck but another party did and it looked great! Will order that next time.

Basic points here but I will elaborate below: Nice for a date with someone new. Great looking and intriguing design to interior. High quality chopsticks and serve ware. Not the best food though and kind of over priced. I'd avoid taking family for a great meal. (I have other area reviews that might help point you to things for that... More

The drinks are good but very pricey, and for some reason Happy Hour prices are not available in the restaurant, only at the bar. The sushi was average, but was tasty. I was surprised that the chicken satay was breaded since it didn't say that on the menu. It was kind of gummy. I would eat here again, but I... More

I visted on my own and service was ok. I was quickly served and attended to but no one went out of their way to give magnificent service. I hold them to higher standards because of their food prices. All in All the food was good, I had the pre-fixed 4 course meal.

Love this place to go for a quiet drink. There are couches on the side and very quiet. Great for some getting to know you time. Food is ok- there are much better places in Great Neck for sushi and Chinese food. But the drinks are fabulous and inexpensive.

Have eaten here a couple of times and was not impressed at all. The portions are small and not very exciting. Would not go back again

I was in the area for business and ordered in on an ugly night. The delivery was fast, to me door, and courteous. Now the food, just what I wanted, stick to the ribs Yaki Udon with delicious shrimp and a nice avocado salad. I think it had some kind of tasty sesame seed dressing or something, but I can... More
