Eli’s Table was first established in 2006, but due to real estate issues, the original location was forced to shut down, and the new location was established in 2018. This restaurant is decorated, with a big beachfront mural on one wall, while the opposite wall is painted black, has the TVs and menu written in white chalk.
There are simple wooden tables and chairs, exposed ductwork ceilings, interesting industrial lights and stainless steel kitchen accessories in the semi-open kitchen and otherwise plain interior. A large Canadian flag hangs above the counter. There is no waiter, and patrons get to select and take their food at the counter.
The menu is the traditional Mediterranean, with influences from all Mediterranean countries. There are appetisers, or mezze like grilled calamari, shawarma poutine, shawarma quesadilla, mezze platter, and fresh-cut sweet potatoes fries.
Most Mediterranean cuisines have fresh salads on their daily menu, and this place serves tabouli salad, all bean salad, pasta salad, potato salad, grilled vegetable salad, fatoush, kale, and coleslaw. There are pitas and burgers like falafel – the vegetarian option, chicken or beef shawarma, chicken or beef souvlaki, homemade cheeseburger, homemade chicken burger, and Lebanese sausage. There are entrée dishes on the menu that are served with rice, potatoes, and salad, like a vegetarian plate, chicken or beef shawarma plates, and chicken or beef shawarma plates, and the Mediterranean seafood platter.
Almost all the meals are served with their homemade garlic sauce made from fresh garlic and other ingredients. To finish off a meal, patrons can select traditional Mediterranean desserts like baklava, maamool with dates or maamool with pistachios.
