A friend and I stopped here while driving looking for a place to eat as we were just visiting NJ for a day. So glad that we did! Everything about this place is fantastic from the food to the service. Our server was only on his second day and was wonderful! The spiced risotto was delicious and the pasta as well! My friend said the steak sandwich was just as good. Don't miss out on dessert either! Definitely a must try.

This was our first visit 'post-renovations'. As always, Ellias never fails to delight. Not seeing many 'renovations' the major change seems to be a lean toward the casual. Gone are the tablecloths, but hello to the new comfortable chairs. All of this doesn't matter. The menu has expanded to include more 'bistro' items. Burger, sandwiches, smaller plates. Items from the former menu are still present as well. All in all it comes down to taste and Ellias still can knock it out of the park.
The pork loin was one of the best pieces of pig that I have put my lips around. My wifes filet mignon was done very rare as ordered. Both cuts of meat were perfectly seasoned, accentuating the flavor of the meat, never overpowering it.
Do your mouth a favor and partake of Ellias' cooking. You won't regret it.
Full bar. Reasonable wine list.

Don't live close by but the food has been superb each time i've been there. Wait staff very helpful and owner came out to make sure everything was good. It just reopened after some renovations. Loved the Chilean sea bass! My only negative would be the music doesn't match the food or stmosphere.

With all my food allergies, it can be a challenge to dine in a new place. This restaurant boasts a caring and attentive staff and a chef who knows how to create dishes for people with food intolerances. Great evening.

Ellias Restaurant is a shining jewel in Warren County,NJ. We have dinner here once or twice a week and have never been disappointed. This is fine dining, not fast food,served at a leisurely pace. Everything is made to order. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive. Food is impeccably and artistically presented with attention to details. The atmosphere is upbeat,yet casual with linen tablecloths and napkins. Smooth jazz softly plays in the background to further enhance the dining experience. Ellias is creative in his menu,but will accommodate different tastes. He goes out of his way yo make your dinner enjoyable. The only negative thing we can think of is that the dessert menu needs more chocolate, but that's just us. Linda and Tom
