Elisir is a chic and classy dining spot. My friends and I dined at the bar for lunch to celebrate one of my friends’ birthday. [Please note: The BAR lunch menu and the lunch menu are different.] I was impressed with the service we received from the bartender and the other servers (and even the manager). I was also pleased that the prix fixe lunch menu had several, distinct options, including exciting vegetarian options. I ordered the spinach and cheese stuffed cannellone and ate every bite of it! Both of my friends were quite satisfied with their salmon. My favorite part of the meal was probably the delicious pear and rosemary Italian soda that the bartender made while we watched. It was even better than the mixed berries with pistachio zabaglione I had for dessert! And in case you’re wondering what a “zabaglione” is, it’s a light custard. If you’re wondering how to pronounce it, I can’t help you. I just pointed to it on the menu. The only complaint I have about my Elisir experience is that our entrees took too long to come out. The bartender inquired twice with the kitchen about the status of our food and the servers apologized profusely for how long it took. It was very puzzling given the reputation of this restaurant, the particular entrees we ordered, and the fact that the restaurant did not appear to be very busy. Bottom line: Great food, good service, slow kitchen. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I return will soon…when I have a lot of time on my hands.
Great! Would highly recommend! Very friendly and responsive to all of my questions. Amazing food too!

My daughter and I saw Ruben's website and were pleased with his website gallery and with the prices of the wedding packages. Ruben responded immediately to all our emails and phone calls, he was always professional, courteous, and was ready to accommodate our wishes. On the wedding day, Ruben arrived well before the ceremony, made sure we knew he had arrived and then, after that, my husband and I were hardly aware of Ruben's presence in the Church. The wedding was in a Catholic Church and Ruben discreetly positioned himself during the ceremony and didn't distract from the reverence and sanctity of the rite. Even our guests didn't seem to be aware of a photographer. This was in sharp contrast to another photographer who we had contracted for our eldest daughter's wedding and who was disruptive during both the ceremony and reception. Ruben quietly and professionally did his job. It was wonderful. The photographs turned out beyond our expectations, each one with such beautiful color, composition, and lovely natural looking poses. Everyone who has seen the photographs comment on the beautiful pictures and the wonderful romantic feel to them. Ruben finished the photographs quickly so we were all able to enjoy the wedding photos soon after. I can't say enough about Ruben's skill as a photographer, as an artist, and as a businessmen. Any bride and groom would be lucky to have Ruben as their photographer, he exceeds all expectations. We highly recommend Ruben.
Excellent work Ruben! We are so impressed by Rubens artistic eye! He captured so many details of our Wedding. We had an outside wedding by the water and the weather was wonderful. I feel so good to have chosen Ruben for many reasons; He was easy to work with when we asked for certain pictures we wanted. He managed to be unobstrusive during the ceremony and reception but also visible enough when we needed him. I highly recommend the coffe table album. Quality is great! We'll forever thank you for working so hard that day and capturing so many wonderful moments! Cat and Ralph
Don't party without Shirley, that is what one of the employees told me. Hahahahaha. His name is Jay. He is funny and nice like the other people from Shirley's that have been doing my annual Holiday Party for 12 years. Highly recommended!!!
