Always a treat, I love the mussels in the Thai coconut curry. This a well run restaurant, the owner Skip is always there and sets the culture as a very professional operation.
We will return.

From the moment we entered we were greeted warmly. Our waitress, Tara, was a pleasure. She brought us the best bread with seasoned oil. We started with the truffle fries, which was a cone of delectable julienned potatoes. I enjoyed a glass of a reserve sangiovese wine with dinner. Both meals were outstanding, salmon and veal. A great experience and we will definitely return.

Nice little bistro with wonderful staff. The fog and blue cheese appetizer was to die for. The mussels well cooked and presented. Truffle fries - yum! Very impressed with the menu and attention to detail. I was so surprised by the low bill, I thought there was a mistake (mind you - I’m used to DC prices). Will most definitely be back.

Have eaten many times at Elixir before heading to a show at Northern Stage. Makes for a great evening. Food is always excellent and their "elixirs" are creative and affordable! The owner has always been there to greet people which adds so much to an always wonderful experience.

Elixir, once again, exceeded our expectations. The menu was a delightful mix of our classic favorites and some new selections. The Vegetarian Risotto was one of the best I’ve ever experienced. The service was also exceptional. Tara anticipated our needs from beginning to end. We will be back very soon!

I had the wonderful Truffle Fries followed by a Caesar Salad and a delicious Sea Scallops Special with a French Chardonnay. I highly recommend these choices, they were very good. Elixir continues to provide an excellent dining experience in downtown White River Junction, VT.

Our waiter was outstanding! My mom has some food issues (acid reflux) and he communicated these perfectly to the kitchen (who was also accommodating!). Food was delicious, well presented and VERY reasonably priced. Thank you!

The food was excellent, with really interesting flavors, and the server was friendly and very competent. The menu is limited (easily visible online, so you can look and see if there are options you'll like), but we each found an entree we enjoyed very much (shrimp/filet mignon). Portions are good but not huge, and prices are a little high for Vermont (more than we usually spend), but not unreasonable. Ambiance is fine, though kept a little chillier than we like. Great experience overall!

Elixir has a solid and reasonably priced drink assortment alongside a focused, tasty menu. I had the rotating vegetarian risotto and was not disappointed! The old freight house venue has a laid back vibe to go along with its history tied to the railroad.

I was shocked that I could find this excellent restaurant in the middle of Vermont. Really enjoyed the fig cheese and bacon appetizer, the curry mussels, and the lemon veal. Very impressive!

This is a family run business, and it’s run really well. The service is pleasant, the atmosphere cozy, the bar nice if you only want a drink, and the owners are there making sure it works. Food, wine, drinks all very fairly priced, good value. This is our second visit, hardly our last. A definite must if you’re in the area. There is a base menu and then specials; so for example, we had the vegetarian risotto. We’re not vegetarians but it was really tasty, rice perfectly done, served hot from the kitchen. My partner had the petite filets, done to perfection. Nice desserts but we controlled ourselves, this time. :-)
