Firstly I'd like to say that the day we visited the food was really good and the portions are for a healthy appetite, which was great. The waitresses that served o our food were subtle and knew exactly how to handle the customers, being attentive we needs be without making you feel harassed. However near the end of the meal one of the waiters gave us a 'Review Us' card and asked 4-5 times to give him a review. I agreed the first time as we thought the experience till that point was great. However he persisted a few more times and said he would give us free stuff which politely declined. He said that he was being paid on commission.
If the management (or the waiter) are reading this review and have asked their staff to push for review please ask once :-) I would have given 5 stars however being too pushy can be counterproductive. A bit of subtlety would go a long way. All in all great food and mostly a good experience.
Loved the service especially from Kyle and the food is great!! Would definitely come another time. And would recommend to my friends
I was at a conference and a group of 3 of us were looking for a restaurant that could satisfy a vegetarian, a halal meat eater, and a normal meat eater. This restaurant satisfied all of our requirements. The 2 meat eaters had a platter for 2, which was sufficient for three people. The vegetarian enjoyed his meal and it all was good value for money.
I will visit next time I am in Liverpool. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a place that has a problem finding a meal for a variety of problem eaters.
Called in for lunch and the place was packed. Always a good sign! The staff sat us quickly and even offered to move is to a bigger table when other diners left, which we declined as there were only two of us and we'd rather the table was available for a bigger group. A fantastic gesture none the less.
Ordered 2 courses each of the lunch menu and they brought us enough food to accommodate the table of four we were offered! We watched the chefs cook most of it on the grill in front of us, the rest - bread, salads, sauces etc, were beautifully prepared, fresh and tasty. Amazing that somewhere so busy can still be a hidden gem, but Elif manages it! Will definitely return.
I just wanted to respond to a strange review in here talking about a sleazy waiter trying to bribe them with free dessert. This is my local Turkish restaurant, I’ve eaten here at least 60 times. I have never ever experienced anything like the review you left. This just doesn’t happen. The waiters don’t need to beg for reviews as the restaurant is always full to the brim and they’re so busy providing huge portions of delicious fresh food that they don’t have time. Shame on you. You must have a rival place nearby.
Fresh food and good service
The food is cooked as wait. Table service is great with plenty to choose from the menu
Wine, beer and most other drinks
Stopped off here on impulse during a recent trip to Liverpool. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a lot of choice on the menu. We each had a two course deal which was very reasonably priced and the food excellent. I’d fully recommend a visit and will eat there again when next in Liverpool.
Absolutely fantastic place. Woul definitely recommend. Decent portions and the early bird menu is excellent value for money. It's busy every single time I walk past, so it's not just me that thinks it's good. There's a lot of places to eat on bold street, but you won't be disappointed of you choose here
Food was good, the staff were really nice, would recommend if you’re visiting Liverpool or even if you live you should definitely try it!
Restaurant busy but soon rearranged tables to seat our party of eight together. Lovely food, I had chicken thighs with rice and husband had lamb and rice. So tasty and lots on your plate. Service was excellent even though it was packed busy. Would definitely recommend - 5 stars ×××××
There has never been a day where I’ve missed out on elif if I did not like this place the title would of not been “here everyday” it’s just amazing best food in Liverpool with out a doubt and the food is very cheap what can fill you up for a massive portion of food, and the staff are outstanding there here very fast when I need something thank you elif
Visited with friends Delicious food freshly cooked ,with friendly first class service very busy would recommend booking
Hands down, the best restaurant I’ve ever been to. Absolutely fantastic. Food was beautiful, the meat cooked to perfection was succulent and moist. The cold meze to start was a delight and the baklava you’re finish was delicious. Service was spot on too! Will definitely be making a special trip to Liverpool to come back.
Our dinning experience at Elif Restaurant was great, the food was freshly made to oder, rich in flavours and very well presented; moreover, the ambience of the place was welcoming, with lovely background music, and the service received from Luis was very professional and friendly.
Visited last night with friends. Very busy lively restaurant service was brilliant atmosphere buzzing. Food so tasty and great value for money. Sharing plates spectacular. Can't wait to go again. Thank you.
Omg, best Turkish restaurant in the UK!
We have tried many with husband being from Turkey and this is our favourite by far !!!
Definitely would recommend the mix grill
Can’t wait to go again
We have eaten twice at Elif and found the atmosphere really good fun. Although it was very busy the service was very good and the food was really tasty and the portions were enormous. We also discovered their Pino Noir was an excellent accompaniment to the meals. Expensive, but well worth it.
We've been to Elif before and we will definitely go again. The service is great, with friendly staff. And the food is second to none. The chicken thighs are the best I've had, but everything off the grill is worth having.
Amazing food!!! Amazing drinks!! Amazing service!!! Would recommend to anyone!!!! It is honestly the best atmosphere
