My friend had posted numerous times about eating here, and it always sounded so good. Tonight did not disappoint. Friendly, attentive service, good drinks, and a fun, imaginative menu. Their weekly specials menu changes every Thursday. Good wine and beer selection, as well, but tonight...More

I've had several good meals at this restaurant, but I feel like they haven't maintained the same quality over time. On one occasion brunch was absolute perfection (with hollandaise to die for) but on the next visit everything was over salted. Most recently I had...More

We had high hopes because we have eaten at Eli's other location in the past and that was excellent. This was just "okay". The food was nothing special. Chicken Marsala was a letdown. The service was average as well. We will skip this location in...More

I first stopped at Eli's for lunch because it is close to downtown Minneapolis and has convenient parking. The reason I have gone back three times is the food! I love their bacon and egg sandwich on grilled sour dough. The sides are just as...More

First time at Eli's and no wow or cool factor noted. My dry cider was lovely, but I could have had one at home. Decor needs to say something about what Eli's is about but doesn't. Asian taco dominated by thick, heavy fried wanton shell,...More
