  • The best meal in Savannah
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    Located outside the populated streets of downtown Savannah sits this gem of a restaurant, situated in a turn of the century mansion. The ambiance is fitting for it's time period in a well kept manor and fitted with period décor. This was just the beginning of our experience. The staff was informative, polite, and extremely accommodating. The food, including all "in-between course", was incredible. The tastes of each meal were tied together and perfectly complemented each other, finishing off with a dessert one could only dream of. Thank you so much for being the highlight meal and experience of our trip to Savannah.

    We had not been to Elizabeth's in awhile and were nervous since she no longer owns the restaurant. We were more than surprised, it was terrific. The service was amazing and Gary, co-owner explained the meal better than I have heard any restaurant do in a very long time. Devon, young girl learning the business made some excellent choices regarding dessert. We will be back again and again

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    We ate at some fabulous restaurants in Savannah, but Elizabeth on 37 was a cut above the rest. Every dish that was brought to the table was executed to perfection. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, warm and friendly to my wife and I. We'll definitely be back for sure, the most memorable dining experience I've ever had. They made our 15yr wedding anniversary extra special!

    First of all, I want to thank the chef for the quality and the diversity of the food presented. I've tried the chef's tasting menu. I liked the touches of southern cuisine. I'm from France and like to discover new flavors of my country of adoption. The restaurant was very noisy that night and I had difficulty to talk to my wife. The tables are very close to each other. We expect more intimacy In such a place. The food was great but I have to recognize that I expected better flavors. I guess it is a question of taste. Anyway, globally, it was a good experience.

    Fantastic food. However, I had the high expectations of this restaurant to be an elegant gem. Environment and decor plays a great part for a wonderful dining experience, unfortunately, Elizabeth lacks plenty of it. Sad flowers, plastic wicker bread basket, patrons in shorts and sandals for dining. Although, I was told on the phone that the dress code was business casual. The restaurant was so disjointed.

    A lovely dinner and our waiter was superb; he described the specials in such poetic detail that we were all enthralled. His descriptions were accurate, the food was delightful, fresh with delicate fresh seasonings ..the wine was fine. We four foodies from South Carolina were very pleased and will certainly return.

    Elizabeth's is a fine dining experience. We had a great corner table (for 2) which was very adequate but just the right amount of "cozy". The waiter and waitresses were wonderful. Great wine suggestions. I would definitely recommend Elizabeth's for that special occasion.

    We have eaten at Elizabeth's a number of times and most recently August 4th my wife's birthday. Food, service and ambiance are phenomenal. Kym was our server and he had many great suggestions for wine and food selections. Every single dish was great. And, they give you some surprise goodies to try But, unless you have an unlimited budget or expense account, plan on $200 per couple to do it properly...and that is with a wine less than $70. Well worth it for special occasions in our opinion

    I have traveled extensively around the world and in the USA, Elizabeth's is by far one of the best restaurants there is and to find it in Savannah, Georgia, is a real plus. We were there on my daughter's 29 birthday and as usual, the food was specular, service second to none, and the evening was a triumph. I had the grouper, my daughter and wife had the red snapper. All were perfect, moist, and served with the freshest sides possible. I can't recommend this restaurant enough. Gary and Greg will go out of their way to make you feel at home and provide a really grand dinning experience. Thanks guys. Very well done.

    The restaurant itself was nice. The staff were all polite and well mannered. Our only complaint is not being warned that our salads would be mixed with cilantro. Not much of a serious complaint though. The food was excellent. The appetizers sounded like entrees. The portions were also nice and filling.

The food was delicious and fresh, the service was also amazing. We love that the restaurant is in a real house; this adds to the overall charm of the place. We'll be coming back soon, ya'll!

    I've eaten here maybe half a dozen times in the past 15 years. (It would be much more, but I live 900 miles away!) It has always been amazing, but this time was even better than in the past. The ease with which they accommodated the eclectic group of diners I was with was impressive. And yet, everything brought to the table, including complimentary side dishes, fit the tastes of everyone at the table. Dinner at Elizabeth is an experience to treasure. Anything you order is sure to be delicious!

    It was our first time in Savannah and we were told that we must go to Elizabeth's. First of all the servers were so courteous. We had walked there and they allowed us to sit inside though they weren't open yet. The food was absolutely wonderful - right up there as one of the best dining experiences I've ever had in the US.

    Being originally from the midwest my wife and I love the "farm to the table" philosophy the food was fresh, and the entree I had (the grouper) was probably the best seafood dish I have ever had, so moist and tender and the beef tenderloin my wife had, was also very enjoyable. The next time we are in Savannah, we will definitely dine there again.

    A wonderful dining experience - great service, notable wine, and delicious, local food. Wife had flounder with basmati rice, butter beans, bacon, and vidalia onion.... she ate every bite; I had red snapper served over a tomato, butter bean, onion salsa - memorably delicious. We both said that it was the best meal we've had in quite some time. Would recommend to anyone.

    We do not get to Savannah often enough, but when we do we are sure to get a table at Elizabeth on 37th. It is a must. This year we celebrated my birthday and unfortunately we did not get dessert as we wanted to go to Leopold's while in town, but the line there was crazy. We now wish we had chosen to eat dessert here!

    This was our first time to dine here after several trips to Savannah. Glad we finally tried it. Food was very good. Don't be afraid to try the specials of the day. Almost everything we got was not on the usual menu. Loved the Gullah Fried Rice topped with red snapper. Our server was very cordial and made our visit a good one. Although it was nice and quiet, I think we might have enjoyed sitting in one of the main rooms rather than the sunroom, so you may want to ask about where you will be seated when you make reservations. Overall, it was a very good meal!

    It wasn't quite a tourist spot, but it was remniscient of restaurants in NY, SF, Atlanta where you need to go one time (only), if for nothing other than to say you've been. The food was very good, the service could not have been better, but I've eaten in better restaurants (primarily food-wise) in larger cities at lower cost. In fact my only complaint might have been the prices, which I don't object to on the face of it, but do regarding the food. The food was good, even very good, but I've eaten better, more original dishes, where the ambience was better for less. All in all, I'd not say stay away, but there is better food and atmosphere in Savannah for a bit less money than Elizabeth's.

    Made reservations with the highest of expectation because the restaurant was referred by several people. Elizabeth's was ho hum at best. Lots of service staff scurrying around but we still poured our own wine. Quality of food was good but little inspiration in preparation or presentation. Boring to the palate best describes our experience. Not a do over.
