    Food until 1am, VERY friendly and knowledgable service, house cured pastrami, penne and cheese. This place is too good to be true! Pro tip: add pastrami to the hot Italian sandwich.

    Chicken chipotle sandwich is amazing. Loved that it had cilantro, and the chipotle mayo has the perfect kick! Going back for sure - loved the atmosphere!

    You have to try the penne and cheese. It rocks. Pro Tip: add bacon! Great place to meet before a show at First Ave.

    Go to Eli's Food and Cocktail with friends or on a cozy date. Order the cobb salad and get crazy by adding steak to the salad. Exceptional. Don't forget to order a glass of wine from their great list. Read more

    The always delicious, weekly changing specials and local atmosphere exemplified by layout, service and clientele, make Elis a hidden gem in downtown. That.. and the steak sandwich, lighting and music.

    Get the linguini pasta...fabulous. I think it's the tuesday special. The burgers are also some of the best in town for the price.
