Extremely disappointing to witness Elevator not adhere to the red zone procedures. Over 20 people dining and majority of staff were not wearing masks. When asked if they were aware that they were in violation, the server said the manager is best to speak with and that the city has given them a free pass.

We were happy to see you enjoyed the evening. Unfortunately we are a small intimate setting and when we rotate seatings at 8 pm , there are times when this does not execute as smoothly as possible. We are trying. As for the bi-law, we adhere to it and the exemptions that fall under its guidance. It would help if everyone read the bi-law and come to terms with its intentions. I also suggest that if you feel you need to ask questions you do so with a manger who can explain the by-law to you. To suggest we spoke with the "City" and have a "free pass" is pure folly and misdirection. Its one thing to discuss a situation that you encountered with management, its another to stay a few hours, enjoy your evening, then slander with a comment that is based on your opinion of facts. I am sure you felt safe doing that.

Well if two Anonymous reviews were not enough, I suppose socially shaming our staff, perceived owner and the hard working back of house staff makes you feel ..... "covid friendly" ....whatever that means ? To be frank, there are By-laws that are intended to give you the perceived notion of "safety". We adhere to them. The Health Ministry advises you go out only for essential services. A proper dining experience is not something that falls into that category for someone so at risk to the current pandemic. Socially shaming people is something that needs to end now, and its equally as harmful, selfish and irresponsible. You need to take care of yourself and stop blaming others for everything that is bothering your well being and your "safety".

I was disgusted with the lack of COVID safety measures taken at elevator bistro. Only 1 staff member was wearing a mask, tables were not distanced, and more than 10 people were sitting inside. This shows a complete lack of understanding of the severity of this pandemic and not taking responsibility for patrons safety. So selfish and irresponsible. Needless to say I will not be returning.

Terrific dining experience! Atmosphere was welcoming with friendly servers and great music. We sampled a bunch of different menu items and all flavours were excellent! Well thought out menu with prime ingredients and attention to every detail. Pizza is a must-try! One of our favourite restaurants in the Hamilton-Burlington area! Thanks Elevator!

There was many uncomfortable situations. No face masks on most servers, a few tables were not 6 feet apart. At one point there was more than 10 customers having dinner. During a pandemic, was very uncomfortable to be in this restaurant. Many customers came in without masks. I will not be returning.

We understand the by-law and we follow it. The bi-law allows for exemptions and some of our staff partake in these exemptions as do many patrons. There are times when a table is leaving and another seating. This does not mean there are 12 diners in the restaurant. The notion of an anonymous social shaming post is very damaging. More so than the pandemic is. Communication and open dialogue are important elements at times like this. You should have approached a manager and explained your level of comfort. Ultimately its up to you to "feel"safe, to understand what the Bi-law states and to educate yourself adequately.

The flavours of the food were very good however the portion sizes were very small, I didn't expect a lot of food but even down to the bread starter was 1 slice of bread cut in half for $6. I also found the dessert menu limited to ice cream and liquor. it would have been nice to have at least a couple of other choices.

This is definitely my new favourite restaurant in Burlington and it's exactly the establishment we need here. Everything about this place screams amazing! The food is spectacular - portions are on the small side but you can't beat the quality of ingredients and painstaking preparations. The cocktails and wine are incredible and it's always icing on the cake when the staff are so knowledgeable about the wines they are curating with their menus. Everything is meticulously thought through from the lighting, the seating, the music - you can't go wrong with a single thing on the menu. I've dined here a handful of times and already feel like I'm a valued client. They do a great take-out business (which is especially important now). Stay local, my friends. There is no reason to go anywhere else for a great dining experience! Safe, friendly and incredible!

Always a fabulous experience! We are so grateful for the attention to detail and quality in all elements of our dining experience. Also, lighting and music is the perfect vibe. Not many places get that right and Elevator is perfection. Staff so friendly & attentive. Even your hand soap and moisturizer is the best of the best. Food, incredible and love the occasional changes to keep us trying new things while always having our fave pizzas as the finale to our meal. Many thanks And see you soon:)
