    I would take a trip to Savannah just to eat at this wonderful restaurant. Set in a gorgeous old home, you truly feel like you have stepped back in time. The ambience is relaxing without being stuffy and the waitstaff attentive, engaging and timely. But the true reason to go here is for the food. From the smoky tomato aioli mussel first taste followed by the roasted curry oysters and puréed eggplant in shiitake mushroom broth to my colleague's and my main dishes of flounder seasoned with pumpkin seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds and crushed almonds served with a scrumptious sauce that did not overwhelm the delicate perfectly cooked fish roasted cauliflower and a small dollop of spinach and Grouper Celeste off the menu were to die for! Finally the coup d'état was the pear, apple pie topped with cardamom ice cream. Would I return, yes! yes! yes! Wish we had a restaurant like this in Tampa.

    my husband & I were visiting Savannah for a 3 day getaway. Elizabeth's was on the recommended list from our hotel. After reading reviews we decided to book Elizabeth's for dinner on our first night. We were given a wonderful table. The servers were enthusiastic and outstanding- the meal was outstanding, so much so that we decided to go back again for our last night. That meal was as good, if not better, than the first.

    While the 90 dollar price point may seem a bit high for the seven course tasting menu, it is well worth it. Portions are quite large and you get to sample a number of both their daily specials as well as standard menu items. My favorite was the nut crusted flounder, beef tenderloin and the shrimp "taco". Lovely wine list. Service was perfect. Probably not a good place for children at least during the dinner seating. I would strongly recommend this to friends and family and will plan to retun on my next trip to Savannah.

    The diners sit in the downstairs of a handsome old residence, with original beautiful woodwork and period decorative artwork. The specials are explained - rapidly but expertly - and you're off to the races! The food is complex without depending on obscure ingredients or novelty techniques. I had a pumpkin-seed crusted flounder and a remarkable eggplant soup, but it looked as though you could not go wrong.

    We arrived early on a cold evening and were invited in to sit by the fire and enjoy a glass of wine until the restaurant opened. The selection was abundant and decided to opt for the Chef's choice; 7 courses of delectable goodies. Service was very smooth and we were well cared for. I highly recommend Elizabeth's.

  • Elizabeth does not disappoint

    Dined on 11/14/2014
    Elisabeth on 37th is probably our favorite restaurant in Savannah. For past four years it has never disappointed my wife and I. We usually go with whatever is on special. We split ouster’s appetizers and followed it by a main course. I went with almond crusted flounder on a bed of cauliflower and my wife went with mushroom souse scallops. House chardonnay accompanied both meals. In general I am not a big fan of chardonnay but this one was not too oakey and nicely complimented the meal. For desert we shared apple peach pie with vanilla ice cream. We usually try each other’s meals so we can have the best of both worlds. I loved my flounder but I must say my wife’s scallops were out of this world. I do not know what and how Elizabeth does it but the scallops were the best we ever had. I think each of us could have had our own oyster appetizer but one shared desert was certainly sufficient to complete the meal. The service was impeccable . Total bill was for $170. We will definitely come back.

  • Can't Stop Thinking About My Dinner!

    Dined on 11/14/2014
    I can't say enough about how wonderful our entire experience was! Kim Teddleton knows his stuff and made, what would have been a great dinner, fantastic. He chose our wines with each course and each sip was perfectly paired. Our spicy mussels, eggplant mushroom soup, shrimp in a crispy parmesan shell were only amazing teasers for the show stopper. My seed encrusted, baked flounder was the so incredible that, although I was pretty full at this point, I ate almost every bite. I think I had a tear in my eye when I finally relinquished the last few bites. It was, by far, the best dining experience, from beginning to end, top to bottom, that I have ever had. A huge thank you to everyone but especially to Kim. You all made my birthday dinner one that I will never forget. See you again in see you in 362 days! or maybe sooner!

    My wife and I came for our anniversary. We had high expectations from reading other reviews and they were all met or exceeded. The staff was very attintive and the food was amazing. We had the spicy Savannah red rice with shrimp and the Berkshire pork chop. The pork chop was the best piece of pork either of us have eaten. The shrimp and rice was a seafood lovers dream. I would highly recommend trying this place if you enjoy fine dining and wonderful food.

    This is the third time we have visited Elizabeth on 37th. The food has consistently been creative, presented with flair and excellent. This has become one of our "go to" spots whenever we are in Savannah. We rarely order an entire bottle of wine, so it is nice that they have some good wines by the glass.

    November 1, 2014 found 6 of us dining at Elizabeth on 37th. The food was good but not outstanding like previous visit in 2013. Best item both trips were the mussel tasting, as the flavor profiles were unique and imaginative. Balance of the entrees were very good but safe.... just didn't have a wow factor. Please don't misunderstand if you like safe predictable meals then you will not be disappointed, and it is one more place off your bucket list. In 2013 I would have rated Elizabeth ahead of The Olde Pink House. Did not eat at The Olde Pink House this trip but can tell you 2014 best flavors goes to Alure on Congress...

    My husband and I had a delicious dinner at Elizabeth on 37. We each had a seafood dish that was fresh and very well seasoned. Our server was knowledgeable, professional and attentive without hovering. The setting was a beautiful restored 100 plus year house that lent itself to a true Southern experience. The only drawback was a very noisy table in our particular room. This of course was no fault of the resturant. Would return in a second and will recommend to friends if they travel to Savannah.

    We discovered this restaurant through Trip Advisor. The people gave it good reviews, but I believe it should be rated number 1. The service was the best I have ever had (and I dine in NYC and around the world). We had multiple waiters and waitresses, but our main waiter (wish I had gotten his name) gave us detailed descriptions of each dish. He also recommended which appetizer would go best with our entree. He was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. This was our first trip to Savannah and he treated us to what the "old south" must have been like living in a beautiful mansion. The food was excellent and creative. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Elizabeth on 37th has stood the test of time. Service was somewhat lacking, with water glasses remaining unfilled and super-long pauses between courses. The food was, however, stellar! The Grouper was perfectly cooked, moist and flavorful. The beef tenderloin was like butter inside and was perfectly seared. Both the garlic mashed potatoes and roasted potatoes were to die for!

    I got the grouper, and it was fantastic. I requested a special table to celebrate our anniversary; but was really disapointed when out table was next to another table, where I shared the bench seat with another couple. Would have been nice if they'd at least set us in the room with the windows looking outside. The service was very good.

    We were lucky to celebrate our first anniversary at such a good restaurant. Set in an old Southern mansion, the meals include local and organic ingredients. Everything we had was very good, including the cocktails. The thing that really stands out is the service. I'm not sure we have ever heard quite a lovely story about possible selections for a meal. And when we mentioned how great other items sounded, the servers brought out small tastes for us to sample! Luckily this was only for one appetizer and one dessert, otherwise, it would have been way too much to eat. We would definitely recommend going here the next time you come to Savannah!
