Elixir Ratings and Reviews
We loved our dinner here! The service was phenomenal, the drinks were delicious, the food was lovely. When you first drive in you may wonder if you're in the right place but once you're inside you know it's the place you were looking for! The next time we are in the area, we will definitely go back.
Food was great. Loved my salmon dish; although this time of year, it was a tempura scallion not a ramp. (Still delicious though!) Our server was super attentive and very friendly.
Thanks so much for a lovely date night while we were on vacation!! Highly recommended!
We arrived early for our reservation time but were able to grab a seat at the bar for a drink. Skip promptly came to get us as soon as our table was ready. Choosing our meals was difficult as everything on the menu sounded wonderful. Unique blends of food and seasonings that I never would have thought of. After we made our selections we had some questions about the wine list and again Skip came to our aid. Great recommendation that went well with the veal saltimbocca and seafood ciopinno. After dinner we opted for a taste of grappa after chatting some more with the host/owner. A very fun evening of tasting and visiting. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere very warm and inviting. Don't pass up the opportunity to try this great restaurant. We will be back soon!
You have to be paying attention to find Elixir. They have very little outside signage, but it is worth the effort. They've been there nine years housed in an old railroad freight yard brick building in White River. The menu is short and doesn't vary a lot, but the food is pretty close to fine dining and closer than anything else we've found in the White River Lebanon area. The wine list and cocktails are also up to the task. When we go to a show or performance in the area, Elixir is our first choice for dinner before the show.
On Tuesday, July 18, 2017, my wife, our two friends and I had dinner there. It was excellent. The two owners are very friendly and effective. They pay a lot of attention to my request for a quiet table. The service is very good. The food is perfect. We have been there many times.
We have visited Elixir many time now and we always find the food to be excellent, the staff to be superb, and the ambiance fun. As it the past we would certainly recommend Elixir to any and all for whatever occasion might present itself. This restaurant is SO good that one should not wait for any special occasion - just get a reservation, go and enjoy.
Skip and his team always put together an amazing experience at Elixir. Whether it is an anniversary, birthday or just meeting friends for dinner, Elixir delivers the right experience. The food is great, the ambiance and environment is inviting and fun, and they even have a separate back table if you have a larger party wanting some seclusion. It is a great place and I cannot recommend it enough!
We have dined at Elixir several times and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. When it's busy, which is often, it can at times get noisy but don't let that discourage you; the food is worth it.
The noise is the only negative I can think of and sometimes wish they would spoil the "old freight house" ambiance for some sound deadening features.
Excellent choice of cocktails and our server was very good. They accommodated my food allergies. The salmon and lentils is my favorite. Nice place for dinner and not too loud. One of the few great food places in the upper valley. Definitely make a reservation!
LOok no further...this place is wonderful!! We were passing thru from Maine & found this on Yelp & TripAdvisor. It is outstanding, very creative menu, warm friendly service, good healthy choices, very reasonable. Even had wine specials by the glass!! ELixir salad was superb, filets done perfectly, tiramisu was small but Divine.
Just an altogether delightful experience. Food, server, wine recommendation all great way to begin the evening that was followed by a Judy Collins concert right down the street. Elixir was an early and continues as an important part of the burgeoning White River Junction "scene".
Great place! I'm not big on ambiance but it's got a cool vibe. The back room is quieter than the main dining room. My wife and I were there for the food. I was a professional chef for 10 years, in the nearby area. You will have a hard time finding a comparable restaurant anywhere close. Creative food, without crazy foo-foo menus and just plain delicious execution! Clean, bold flavors in every dish!
Waitstaff was totally professional. Everything was spot on. Highly recommended a visit.
