Historic house = 1 limited, cramped parking 2 not handicap accessible 3 dining room got progressively louder as tables filled. Food was excellent and service was impeccable, but factors above would keep me from a second visit.

Great place! Went there on a dinner date for 2, ordered the filet mignon. Most perfect filet I've ever had in my life. Dessert was amazing as well. Had a 3 course and an alcoholic drink a piece and the bill was about $150. I'd pay that again for another special occasion hands down.

Visited on a Saturday Evening, celebrating our Anniversary, and seated in the perfect corner table. After hearing all the specials, we opted for the Tasting Menu with wine parings, which is essentially all of the specials of the evening. I won't go into the specific courses, but from the amuse-bouche through to dessert, everything was excellent. The wine parings were custom selected by Gary and were very well done. Both Gary and Aly provided spectacular service. Elizabeth is a little off the beaten path in an historic mansion in a primarily residential area. Street parking was plentiful and free. It is not to be missed!

A fun night meeting a friend for dinner. Food was amazing as was the service. We were so full from dinner we did not have room for dessert. Next time I will definitely leave room for dessert--even if it means taking home some of my delicious meal.

Our evening at Elizabeth's on 37th was beyond on expectations. The ambiance was perfect for a historic southern evening and romantic dinner. The staff anticipated all of our needs and assisted us throughout the whole meal. The chef prepared quite a culinary experience. Everything was prepared and presented to the highest standards. This rates as one of the best meals I've ever enjoyed. The scallops were amazing. The side dishes were delicious and complimented the main fish entree very well.

The food was exceptional, but the real surprise was the incredible service. Our servers were warm and professional. We were treated like invited guests. This was a very special evening for us as my mother bought the cookbook written by the original owners about 20 years ago. Since then it has been a dream of hers to eat at Elizabeth on 37th. Sometimes reality does not live up to a dream. This time it surpassed it. Thank you.

It’s a true Historic restaurant but no parking or valet in a not-so-nice part of town which is a bummer. The food was great and service was outstanding. A great place for a special occasion or date.

Went solo for an early dinner while on a trip through Savannah. Have dined here many times. I was seated in a small, front facing dining room which has been my good fortune on many evenings here. But this night the restaurant plopped an eight topper in the middle of the intimate two toppers which are the character of the room Then filled it with Asian and American business people who loudly worked at impressing each other with their joviality and conviviality. So loud I left without dessert. Lesson; always ask for the quietest room, and if you see even a six topper, ask for another room!

Overall, I thought my experience was okay. I have visited this restaurant and the comparable “The Pink House” and found that the overall service at the Pink House was much more friendly. I reserved and left notes about it being my fiancé’s and i’s anniversary, and asked for something to be done in commemoration of it. Nothing was done in regards to the meal or service . The host did mention “happy anniversary” to us when we came in, but I wanted to surprise her with an act of kindness during meal time. The waiter was professional, but not very kind. He did not ask us anything, attempt to spark conversation, nor do anything courteous other than ask if we wanted more water an additional time. I was very disappointed, because I dined here in order to have a fun and romantic anniversary, and I believe this restaurant fell short in relation to the glowing reviews. Dine here, the food is good, but the “above and beyond factor” that I had read about isn’t true. Celebrate your anniversaries at the Pink house. We celebrated there and it was outstanding, we were even given a tour! I left a 25 dollar tip on a 112 dollar tab here at the Elizabeth because I support waiters and waitresses, but I was severely disappointed in the lack of courtesy for our anniversary.

We had one of the most memorable nights BECAUSE we had Kym as our Food Intuitive. He literally suggested what we eat and in what order and we just loved every bite. He was such fun and the food was fabulous. We'll be back again whenever we're near Savannah! Thank you Kym! So grateful to you!

WOW! I took my mother here for her birthday. We had two alternating servers and they were very kind, knowledgeable and fun. We ordered the tasting menu, which was very delicious and filling. My mother and I enjoy food; we can put away some good food and even we could not finish it. We also spent about 2 hours here so clear off your evening—it’s worth the time spent, so bring someone you can stand talking to for 2 hours. The red snapper was divine and I could’ve raided the kitchen for more of those cheese puffs. If you like a flavorful take on caprese, PLEASE order the fresh mozzarella. Tomatoes are very good around this time. The only down side is that other tables can get very loud, which can take away from the setting. I will recommend this to anyone that can afford this experience.

Whenever I have a special occasion to celebrate, I go to Elizabeth on 37th because I believe it is the best place to eat in Savannah. The food is alway innovative and of excellent quality. The staff are very attentive and knowledgable about the menu. The owner are always there to meet the customers, interact with them as they dine, and help the staff out if they see something needs to be done to provide the best service possible.

We are at Elizabeth’s to celebrate our anniversary. Both of us had one of the specials for the night: Gullah fried rice with crabmeat and flounder. The food was excellent as was the service. We were seated at a corner table which was great for carrying on a conversation. The noise level was just right to allow us to hear one another without feeling that everyone in the room was listening as well. Perfect evening!

Some of the best food we have ever had. Been there every time we visit Savannah and never disappointed. We have been to a number of the top restaurants around the world and this ranks up there with any of them. Chef does not go overboard trying to be overly creative, just serves great food, just fabulous.

It was the last evening of our holiday in Savannah and this restaurant turned out to be a perfect choice. Food is inventive and excellent - waiter and sommelier’s advice very good. Waiting staff friendly and professional. It’s a bit of a walk if you are staying in the historic district but definitely worth going to. It feels a bit less touristy and more authentic than other fine dining places we have tried in the city.

Elizabeth on 37 is my very favorite restaurant in Savannah and I go there every time I’m in the area. The noise level was very low at the beginning of our meal but a large group got louder as the night went on, but it was still not anywhere near most other restaurants. I absolutely love the beautiful old house!

Almost 40 years in business and you can taste every minute but like its 40 years fresh! They could stand to warm up the booth corner lighting as the bulbs make it feel static and drs office like but ask for corner with warmer lighting if going that way.

This restaurant is one of my favorites anywhere - any time. The food is amazing! The menu is focused on local items, surprising combinations, and memorial meals. I have never been disappointed, and in this case the snapper I had was, perhaps, the best fish I've ever enjoyed at a restaurant. Couple exceptional food with an amazing staff, and the experience can't be beat. Kym, Greg, Aly, Chuck... are all incredibly kind, knowledgeable, helpful, attentive, fun (and I could go on!). My recommendation (and what we always do), is skip the menu and let the team bring the food and wine pairings that they recommend for the night. They never let us down! We'll be back!
