    I was really disappointed in that I'd let the restaurant know in advance that this was my parents 59th wedding anniversary and I'd like them to have a wonderful table and a very special evening. My parents greeted the receptionist as I parked the car (no valet and very restricted parking in their parking lot meant I had to find street side parking). When I entered the restaurant, I found my parents seated in an empty room at a meager table flush against a wall and close to the kitchen. (I later saw other tables in a far more elegant front room where I had have thought we'd be sat). There was absolutely no mention of my parents' anniversary until shortly before the bill arrived when one of the waiters saw the anniversary card on the table. The waiter did apologize for not acknowledging earlier that it was their anniversary. Although the apology seemed sincere and heartfelt, it also actually made the moment more awkward as we were trying to make him feel better for the oversight. I really hadn't expected the waitstaff to acknowledge the anniversary but I had really wanted a special table and was sorely annoyed at the awful table and the underwhelming ambience that killed the evening. More generally, the exterior of the mansion is beautiful, but could use landscaping and the interior is in desperate need of renovation. The holiday season is here but there wasn't a decoration in sight in what could have been a beautiful venue. The food and beverages were delicious, but the ambience was poor and the service lacked the sophistication and polish that a restaurant at this price point warrants. A disappointing evening on what was meant to be a special night.

    Service was good, the environment was nice. The biscuits were dry, hard, inedible. The salmon was mushy, potatoes over salty. The tenderloin was butterflied, not worth the price. Very disappointed. Will not return.

    Best meal we ate in Savannah and it wasn’t even close. They started playing music halfway through the meal and that added to the atmosphere, which was a little too quiet for my liking when we first arrived. We were seated uncomfortably close to our neighboring table when we arrived and it was initially so quiet that we had to be mindful they could hear our every word. The music helped lighten the vibe. The food and cocktails were outstanding. Loved it!

    Unfortunately for us the restaurant failed to manage the previous dining party effectively and as a result we didn’t sit down to dinner until 45 mins past our scheduled time. Whilst generous in their complimentary drinks and I will recognize the efforts of certain members of staff to appease the situation, the delay did have a negative impact on the evening and my 50th birthday celebrations. The food itself with the exception of my wife’s meal was good and service once sat attentive.

    First timer in Savannah & this place did not disappoint. I was recommended a Elizabeths on 37th from a friend, our reservation was at 8pm we got there 30 minutes prior and they sat us right away. Josh our waiter was the true meaning of southern hospitality, I hugged him on the way out! For dinner I ordered a glass of the Pino noir and the pepper crusted beef tenderloin, which was cooked perfectly and absolutely delicious!! This dinner was exceptional, from the service to the ambiance! I give it a 5 star! Can’t wait to return!

    The hose is beautiful. Seating is spaced for excellent conversation and visual enjoyment. The service was just first class. We had the soup of the day. Fresh local crab with the most delicious and flavorful base. Next oysters roasted with the best flavor you could imagine. Entrees were so soecial with a grouper, a snapper and perfectly prepared filet. Finished with two delicious deserts. And then there was the wine. Trusting Michael we were treated to a buttery Chardonnay and a rich and full flavored Cabernet. The brothers Butch with their kindness and knowledge made for the most perfect evening Memorable in every way in a good way. Thank Gary for the conversation and his generosity.

    We ordered an appetizer (never got it), another appetizer (they brought the wrong one), and a cocktail (also got the wrong one). Food was fine. We’ve loved Elizabeth’s forever. But it seems to be going downhill in food quality and service.

    A mixed review as overall food was very good, service was professional, ambiance good but noise level for a fine dining restaurant was TOO noisy. Hard to even have a discussion over the other conversations of other diners in the dining room. That was disappointing. Your review said energetic - it was not energetic it was distracting. The noise took away from the ambiance, Too crowded in the dining room for the acoustics,

    I’m sure this place was something in it’s time but that time seems to have passed. What’s left is overpriced yet underwhelming food, average service, and a beautiful gothic mansion. Too bad we didn’t get to see more of the house…it was definitely the highlight of the visit. Much better restaurants in Savannah. Pass on this one.

    We very much appreciated the front desk staff accommodating our late arrival due to a traffic accident. We called to inform restaurant we were being delayed. The waiter seemed inexperienced which is very unusual for Elizabeth’s. He tried to take my friend’s salad when she had not even eaten half of it. When the entrees were served the waiter came by at the same time, before we could eat a mouthful, to ask how our meals were. This was not the typical seamless service at Elizabeth’s. The food was excellent as usual.

The food was delicious from appetizers to our entrees. We were to full for dessert, however they were very tempting. We asked Gary to pair the wines with our meal which competed a perfect evening.

    Wow. After all these years, Elizabeth remains one of the South's great restaurants. Still amazing cooking, still flawless service, still elegant atmosphere. Roasted oysters, butterbean soup, flounder with fried rice, snapper with spinach torte, great wine list -- everything was just perfect. As you would expect, it's not exactly a cheap evening out, but worth every penny.
