If we could give more than 5 stars we would. We went to celebrate my mother in laws 70th birthday and they went above and beyond. The food was all delicious but the service was just out of this world. Will be recommending Elizabeth on 37th to everyone I know going to Savannah for years to come!

With the challenges the restaurant industry is facing right now, Elizabeth’s staff was stellar. They worked together flawlessly, took the time to engage with us, and new the menu intimately. Kym and Haley added to our experience.

We chose the tasting menu because there were so many choices we couldn’t decide. Then, of course, we added the wine tasting to go along. A great value. With each glass Kym told us how that particular wine was paired with our plate.

The food had so many layers. Fresh scallops seared perfectly with a butter bean hummus that was creamy and garlicky. Fish with a crab fried rice and a tenderloin that just melted.

We tried to pass on dessert but so glad we didn’t. The Pecan and almond pie was amazing and my husband had the chocolate pecan pie and barely shared.

The only downside was our table wasn’t intimate awkwardly sat on opposite sides of a oblong four top. My husband slid his chair to the side and it worked just fine.

Absolutely recommend.

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner with excellent service. Each course was delicious and served beautifully. From She Crab Soup to the Fruit with Sorbet for dessert, each course was better than the next. This is the best place for an elegant dinner in Savannah!

Kym and Blair took care of us in the best way. Very accommodating and friendly.
The food is the star of this show. We all had fish with seasonal sides and it was one of the finest culinary experiences of our lives.
There was a delightful Amuse Bouche prepared by Blair who is also an amazing Pastry Chef who shared some extra goodies with us.
Haute Cuisine is here and thriving!

Elizabeth’s on 37th is a lovely restaurant in a wonderful southern styled house.
The food and service was top drawer as you would expect.
One note. The rules on “business casual” have relaxed. We saw diners in shorts and in jeans. This is not a criticism and it did not take away from the dining experience. However, it is worth noting for anyone coming in from out of town.
In short, we would recommend this restaurant.

We have been going to Elizabeth's on 37th Street for 20 years. The food and service is outstanding and the only 5 Star restaurant in the surrounding areas. The ambiance is fabulous and we never miss an opportunity to have dinner when in Savannah. A must for all to experience.

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Elizabeth on 37th on our recent visit to Savannah. We ate at several of the most popular restaurants and this was our favorite by far. Everything was excellent! We did the tasting menu and it was the best we've ever had. I highly recommend it. The owner and his daughter were delightful and so informative. It was fun to hear the history of the restaurant and see the family all working together. (We were the ones asking questions and wanting to know about the restaurant... they did not interrupt our dinner to chat) They were extremely professional and the food came out at just the right time. If you want to go, make a reservation early. I tried to move our dinner up once we were in Savannah and there was absolutely nothing available. We will go back whenever we return to Savannah! It is one of the more upscale restaurants in Savannah. Make sure to book early and have fun! Wish we could join you:)

Nothing on the menu was explained. The staff were ready to go home, cleaning up while we were at our table, which greatly diminished the experience. Just moving cattle to the slaughterhouse. The quicker the better. Expensive, average food, poor service.

Husband had the pork chop, and it was tough and a little overcooked - yummy macaroni accompanied it. We shared a delicious appetizer with scallops over butter bean hummus. I had the flounder with wonderful crab fried rice. Service was great! Sauvignon blanc wine bought by the glass was not chilled enough. Basil martini was fabulous! So, sort of a mixed bag food and drink-wise. The room was not quiet - a larger group dominated the sound waves and diminished our opinion of the restaurant -- they need to think about making changes for room acoustics.

Wonderful food and service! Even as obvious tourists, our server was very helpful and kind. There is an unofficial dress code of business casual, but you can still wear anything as long as you're comfortable being around other guests who are dressed much nicer.

We enjoyed ourselves immensely at Elizabeth. I would like to caveat that statement with a disclaimer, however: we were originally seated in the side sunroom, and although our bussing attendant was very attentive with the water and biscuits, we had been seated for over fifteen minutes without even being greeted by our waiter. Because of this, the poor table we had been given, and the pricing of the restaurant, we felt comfortable enough to request a different table, which was quickly accommodated.

We were then seated in Michael’s section, who provided us with truly exceptional service that evening. The fish was freshly caught and beautifully cooked, and we were served several amuse-bouches, which were greatly enjoyed.

I would absolutely return and recommend to friends. I just would request Michael next time.
