Elixir Ratings and Reviews

Every time we go to Elixir we seem to have a great experience and it keeps improving. We met friends who were going for their first visit to Elixir. We ordered drinks and an order of delicious frites to share. Our server, Brenna, was very attentive and offered the specials, and we all chose the dinner special. Veal Saltimbocca. It was served with a potato gratin and asparagus.......in a word, the dinner was superb ! We had a bottle of nicely priced zinfandel
and topped it all off with two desserts for the table which we shared. It was a busy Friday night, and there were several tables that turned, but it was never distracting. Great service with great food......it explains why Elixir is so popular and why you should always make a reservation or else you will be waiting to be seated.

It is just a wonderful eating place with always a warm welcome from the Owner.He has taken an old railroad warehouse an made it a place for dining, excellent food, fun atmosphere, with bar and comfortable table settings . The waitstaff are there with great service and all the service you need. You must go there to see for your self.

We had a lovely evening. Food is always fabulous and our waitress was wonderful. One recommendation: it was cold by the windows. You may want to consider window treatments especially for winter. I did notice another couple close by had to wear their coats too!

Elixir is great! From the minute we walked through the door and were seated we were treated like special guests. Wine list was very affordable, service was timely and allowed for an intimate dinner. (We are locals and I highly recommend the mussels...and the French fries with aioli.) But tonight we came in pre-performance for the theater and I had the salmon. Perfectly cooked and wonderfully plated. My date had the scallops. Many oohs and aahs. I highly recommend reservations as it is usually very crowded. You will not be disappointed.

I just love this place. They did make a mistake on our order, but quickly brought out the right dish within a few minutes. The waitstaff are great and you can tell the owner really loves the business. He is courteous and available. I wish I could go there everyday!

We could not have been more pleased. I have difficulty hearing in most restaurants, but my wife and I were able to carry on a conversation even though the restaurant was nearly full. Food was excellent, I especially liked the chicken, and my wife loved the risotto, including the leftovers we took home and ate for lunch the following day. We shared a delicious appetizer of prosciutto, pears, and cheese. Wine list is extensive and fairly priced.....several wines I enjoy at under $7.50 a glass. We loved the decor and mentioned that to Skip when we left. He proceeded to give us an interesting short tour of his part of the restored freight house. We have been there twice in the past few months and will be going more frequently in the future.

We were heading to a show after dinner. The owner greeted us, hung up our coats and asked if we were heading to the show. He said he'd let our server know so we'd make it in time. The meal was delicious and we made it to the show with time to spare!

Elixir has consistently good food and wine at reasonable prices. This time had a two specials, pork belly appetizer and short rib entree, which were both comfort food but delicious. Service was excellent and friendly even though it was a busy Saturday night.

Great food and location
Although parking is a bit limited,don't let that stop you.
They have a wide variety of food for all tastes and a pretty good wine and beverage list to choose from.
If I'm ever back in WRJ Elixir is the place go be.

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a wonderful restaurant in White River Jct! We were immediately asked whether we were attending a show (which we were), and the food service was timed appropriately. Drink selections are extensive and inexpensive. The menu features a variety of dishes. We tried the salmon and the steak, and both were excellent. I highly recommend Elixir! Great atmosphere and good service in addition to excellent food.

This restaurant knows how to serve you a wonderful evening of great food and service. I went with the truffle dip sauce and fries for a starter then pan seared scallops with truffle mashed potatoes. It was SUPER and served hot and timely. Do yourself a flavor and try Elixir out, you won't be disappointed. The owner greeted us and was sure to say comeback next trip, We will make a return trip.

A little difficult to find as it is set back from the road but what a find! Our meals, a filet and shrimp scampi, were excellent. The shrimp scampi was different than usual but excellent. The filet was perfect. Owner is very pleasant to talk with. Brenna, our server, was outstanding. Excellent wine list with reasonable prices. I wished I lived closer.

The menu was nothing like the menu listed online, leading to a rather down date. When we walked into the restaurant, we were told to wait. Not offered a seat at the half empty bar, just told to wait at the door. We could clearly see at least 8 empty tables and even though we arrived 5 minutes before our reservation time, we were forced to wait over 15 minutes as walk in customers were seated before us. When we were finally offered a table, it took nearly 20 minutes before they even asked what we wanted to drink. The service was absolutely abysmal. We ended up splitting 6 desserts because the menu we were given was extremely pretentious and came across as unappetizing to both of us. The bread pudding was okay at best, while the other 5 desserts were barely touched. We stopped for fast food on the way home, it was infinitely better. We were later informed that only hipsters and self important vegans eat at this restaurant. We will NEVER return nor will we ever recommend that even people we dislike eat at this establishment. Pity, the original menu we read sounded delicious. Don't be fooled by fake reviews, we were.

We went to Elixir before seeing a play down the street at Northern Theater. We were seated right away, which was nice because we were on a bit of a schedule. The service was extremely efficient and pleasant. The food was very good. Highly recommend it!

Fun and festive for a birthday dinner. Service was friendly and attentive. Lively atmosphere. Many older patrons, probably going to the theatre nearby. Appetizers were good and fun to share. Filet mignon and Scallops were particularly delicious entrees. They comped the birthday boy's dessert. Good wine. Cold cappuccino was the only disappointment. Worth the drive from Hanover or beyond. We will be back!
