    Elizabeth's is elegant but cozy, a hidden gem and a local icon...the owners see that everyone receives the most attentive service, delicious, unique dining experiences tailored to their tastes and restrictions (coming from a gluten/dairy/garlic free person, this is a must!) paired with brilliant wines and delectable desserts. Dining at Elizabeth's is a magical experience, perfect for Savannah.

    We came for the food and we were not disappointed. Having said that, we felt the service to be almost indifferent - a little warmth would help! We also found the number of helper rushing around the room, going to and from the kitchen, to be distracting and annoying.

    9 course tasting menu was exquisite! We loved everything about the restaurant from outstanding artfully prepared food to ambiance and service. We had a lovely banquette corner window table which made for a romantic intimate dining experience. The amuse bouche with 2 seafood selections and petite choux were divine. The staff did a great job pacing the courses and paid attention to detail. If we are ever in Savannah again, we will dine here.

    Our waiter had been there since 1983 and was very knowledgeable and helpful. The service was outstanding. The food was excellent if a little pricey. My only complaint was that we were seated in what was once a side porch and so the ambience was not very good. I advised the restaurant beforehand that this was a special occasion for us (36th wedding anniversary) so it would have been nice to be seated in the romantic part of the house rather than the addition. Cannot fault the service and food though....wonderful.

    The service at Elizabeth on 37th is flawless. Everyone was wonderful, from the host to the multiple waiters who helped us. The atmosphere is very quiet and peaceful. The diver scallops with chanterelles and beurre blanc were amazing. I would walk over hot coals for them. The seafood with red rice was tasty, but nothing remarkable. Our appetizer, a special of roasted oysters with curry sauce, was hugely disappointing. Gritty, miniscule oysters swimming in sauce, half of them sitting in broken shells, arranged haphazardly on a plate with wilted greens. I love oysters, and I expected much better from such a lovely restaurant. Given the high prices, I would have hoped for more dishes like the scallops.

    We Went to Elizabeth's on a recommendation from a friend. The setting was amazing! It was a beautiful old home in a lovely area. There were so many items to choose from on the menu that looked incredible and that did not count the specials. Each of us ordered a different menu item and none of the three of us were disappointed. We shared a wonderful chocolate pecan torte for desert that also was delectable. As far as the service, it started out excellent but then I think the Captain forgot about us for a bit. After that though, the service caught back up. Overall it was a wonderful experience with amazing food! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Savannah.

    I wanted to take my wife to a very special place for her birthday on our trip to Savanna. Looked up reviews of different locations and found that Elizabeth on 37th was highly recommended; it was described as a very nice restaurant, we were not disappointed. The food was served in a way as not to rush the dinner, the Sommelier, or Captain, was fairly knowledgeable. Food served was excellent and we will do our best when in Savanna again, to visit Elizabeth on 37th again for another unforgettable experience.

    I brought my friends from out of town here since they requested "very nice". I had been to this restaurant about 10 years before so knew it is "very nice". What I didn't expect was how incredibly fun it was too! The waiters made it a party so not only was our dinner delicious, we ended up closing the place down and had a blast! Thank you to the wait staff for such a great experience!!!

    My husband and I were in Savannah for five days and dined here our last night. It capped off our entire Savannah experience: a beautiful historic home, gracious southern hospitality and beautiful, delicious food. We asked for a candle for our table, and our server brough NOT a tea light but a candlestick. Within half an hour, three other diners also had candles on their table and the diningroom was cast in a romantic glow. I highly recommend Elizabeth's!

    We had high hopes for Elizabeth's. The low lights, however, were so extreme that it colored the entire experience. A $40 filet entree, ordered medium rare, should never be served well done. And when it is, the waiter should be on top of the correction. Ours was not. Not only did he disappear after the error, he dispatched the back servers to our table for the rest of our dinner. My entree didn't reappear until after everyone else finished their dinners. There were apologies offered, but not as much as a complimentary dessert or glass of wine. Our waiter literally disappeared while 3 others filled in, bumbling over each other. It took 3 tries to get someone to recite the dessert menu.

    Really nice restaurant. Came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Had a party of 8 that went to 9 at the last minute, staff seamlessly set an extra place. Tasty mussel dish prepared by the chef, came out first - YUM. Oyster ap was awesome. Had the snapper special, delish. Everything was great. Waiter was adorable. Would go back tomorrow.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Elegant setting with a knowledgeable and seasoned senior waitstaff. Elizabeth's interprets Southern classics w a modern twist. After we indicated to our captain we were both interested in the Carolina red rice seafood jambalaya - he asked how hungry we were. We said moderately. He suggested that we share the main dish and share two appetizers which we did. We so appreciated that! The resulting portion size was pitch perfect. We had the sublime curried oysters, followed by the soup of the evening- a puréed mushroom soup topped w forested mushrooms. Simply delicious. We then had room for their signature angel food cake- their riff on an English Trifle. If you're looking for a fine dining restaurant - a must

  • Elizabeth on 37th: best of Savannah

    Dined on 10/5/2014
    My wife and I were visiting Savannah for a wedding. The two big places to eat a nice meal in Savannah were the Old Pink House and Elizabeth on 37th. The Old Pink House was like a Cheese Cake Factory and I mean that in a good way. On the other hand, Elizabeth on 37th is what you would expect from a top tier restaurant. It is set in a beautiful old southern home and the service is unparalleled. The restaurant is quiet and stunning to look at. This was the best meal we ate in years. Both my wife and I were amazed at our dishes. I can say this was the best pork chop I've had in my life. They also brought us little extras that were great. We had a tasty mussel to start our night out. Goto Elizabeth on 37th and you will be ecstatic that you did.

    The grouper and the scallops were wonderful. The clam appetizer was excellent. However the noise level was high and the service not great for this high end restaurant. It felt like the wait staff each had too many tables to take care of. They had to be reminded that they had to pour more wine into our empty glasses.

    My husband and I recently dined at Elizabeth on 37th and intentionally made a later reservation to allow us time for sightseeing during our trip to Savannah. After trying to get us to change our reservation to an earlier time (via a phone call offering a "found" earlier reservation), the staff proceeded to rush us through dinner with every course arriving as soon as the prior one left the table. The entire dining experience - which covered 4 courses - took only an hour, which feels like a more appropriate pace for fast food. And the food, while decent, is certainly not worth the $35-40/entree price point they charge. Overall, an extremely disappointing experience.

    My wife & I celebrated her birthday last night at Elizabeth's. This was our first time here. All in all, our evening was very good. The ambiance & service makes Elizabeths special. The special soup, Mushroom soup was outstanding, however, at $16.95 one didn't get very much of it. My wife got the almond/sesame crusted grouper which was fabulous, should be at nearly $38. I ordered the most expensive entree, filet at $41. The only downside of the whole evening was my filet. The sauce was wonderful but the filet? Was not good. For a $40+ cut of beef, one would expect a little bit more in quantity and of better quality. We wanted to make Elizabeth's our go to place for special occasions.

    Took my mother here for her 76th birthday. It was a Monday night in Savannah and the restaurant was packed! We had excellent service as usual. We started out with a soup that was featured... cremini mushrooms with shaved parm, it was delicious! Next, we both had mixed green salads with sliced apples, bleu cheese crumbles and a vinaigrette. I had the seared scallops for my entree and she had the grouper, both were done to perfection. We love this restaurant. They pride themselves in doing everything to perfection and trying to make your experience at Elizabeth's one you will not forget!
