Foodie with life-long memories of this dinner! Charnie was great and I’d kill for that Fois Gras! Kudos on everything. If you like great food then don’t miss this place.

Felt like having a good steak and Elk Ave Prime did not disappoint. Was a little surprised by the prices, but after all, it was a 120 day wet aged steak. I had the bone in fillet. OUTSTANDING..... Their creamed sweet corn side was also...More

Great food and ambiance. Perfect for date night or a large group. Be sure to make reservations to avoid wait time. Cocktails were excellent. Helpful wait staff and our waitress was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations.
