Elizabeth on 37th
Parking can be a challenge, like every other place in Savannah, but it’s well worth it. Charming restaurant with great service and outstanding food.
My wife and I went here for our third anniversary and it was easily the best so far! We both got the 7 course chef sampler and it was definitely worth the price. The food was excellent, the service was possibly the best I've ever experienced. The staff were not only very knowledgeable but extremely on the ball. It's too expensive for an every day affair but for special occasions this is easily the best. I was told by a coworker that this was the best restaurant in Savannah, and after eating here I definitely agree!
Service was beyond extraordinary and the food left nothing to be desired. A true gem in dining.
The food was amazing and the service impeccable. We went for our anniversary and had a wonderful time.
Awesome food, awesome service
We were celebrating our 50 years of marriage. We were seated in a room with 8 of the loudest people ever. The table ruined the dinners of the 5 other couples seated separately in this room. Owners of Elizabeth should have been aware of this problem and sat their diners in other areas ( which were not full ). Will not return.
This restaurant is in a very old home and had a very traditional ambiance. The house seems worn and tired not what I was expecting from the reviews. Gone of the days of grandness. The yard of the home and the entry need some love. I did find that the food made up for the atmosphere. My husband and I both ordered the tenderloin and it was amazing. The beer list was limited but ok. We were enjoying an anniversary dinner and had made note of that on the open table reservation but it was not mentioned by the staff. Overall we had a very nice meal in a very old home.
Very good fine dining experience. Food and service was excellent. Very attentive but not hovering service and creative, tasty food. We were seated on the enclosed porch which was ok but a loud party of 6 also occupied an acoustically challenged space. They did quiet down once they started eating. Definitely will go back.
First time at Elizabeth on 37th, and it was disappointing. The restaurant has no dedicated parking, so parked on the street nearby in what clearly is a neighborhood on the edge. The restaurant is housed in a once grand home that, unfortunately, has been allowed to fall into disrepair. The grounds, particularly on the sides of the home, are unkempt, and even those at the front, although better maintained, need some TLC. The garden hose that had been dragged across and left on the front lawn is an example of a lack of attention to detail required of fine restaurants.
The inside of the restaurant is much like the outside. When my wife and I walked through the front door we were struck by the strong odor of mildew which, as it turned out, permeated the entire restaurant. The dining rooms and furnishings are badly worn and need to be completely renovated.
The real disappointment, though, was the food. I started with the wedge salad. It was not a traditional wedge of iceberg lettuce, but consisted of what appeared to be two heads of romaine that were probably the most bitter lettuce I have ever tasted. The dressing which was close to inedible was a watery, vinegary concoction with blue cheese sprinkled on top. My wife chose the wild mushroom soup to start. It was a thin gruel, totally without flavor. I had the snapper for my entree. It was overcooked and topped with dry and tasteless breadcrumbs. My wife had the chicken breast which she said was fine, her word for just OK. We finished our meal with coffee and triple chocolate cake. Both were good. Service was also good. In fact, the entire staff were accommodating, friendly and attentive.
Can't understand the rave reviews or the four and five star ratings. Based on our experience none is warranted. In our opinion Elizabeth on 37th needs a lot of work and in its current state is a far cry from a fine dining venue.
Tried the chef menu and it was perfect. Got to tried a bit of everything and every dish was amazing.
Always looked forward to here but after our last visit I’m not sure we will be back. Double cut pork chop looked wonderful but was severely undercooked, which I mentioned and showed to our server, no manager stopped by the table to discuss and no adjustments were made to our check.
Elizabeth on 37th was one of the best fine dining restaurants we have found. From the ambiance of the historic home, to the warm welcome, we had a great experience. We were early and while they could seat us, we opted to sit on the front porch and sip cocktails. Then, we were shown to our table and one of the owner's shared the evenings specials with us. The wait staff was exemplary - there were three serving the small room we were in, and all of them stepped in to help with questions and small details as needed. I felt that we had a team working for our comfort. The food was sensational - from the Amuse- Bouche, to dessert. You pay for what you get, but it was certainly worth it for my husband's 70th birthday!
My daughter and I had dinner here for my birthday while on a long weekend visit to Savannah. Everything about the evening was perfect! The location was beautiful, the service was exceptional and the food was outstanding. For us it was a splurge but worth every penny, we would highly recommend it for a special occasion.
Gary and staff provided an excellent experience as usual. Fantastic night with a fantastic meal!
The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and the wait staff is pretty good when they are paying attention to you. Although the food was competently and properly prepared, I did not think that its presentation or composition warranted the expensive price tag.
It was fabulous!!!!
Great food and service!
We will be back!
Great spot, enjoyed the service, food and location
One of my top five fine dining places to eat in the lower 48 states! Great service a King with top notch seafood. I really enjoy eating here every time. It’s away from the hustle and bustle of the waterfront.
Top Tip: take a taxi or ride Sharing service almost no parking!

Amazing food and amazing service! Highly recommend this beautiful place to everyone!
Amazing! Great place. Food is beyond!!
Our party of 4 were seated in the worst restaurant traffic area imaginable with wait staff hurrying past our table at a dizzying pace. They must have seated more customers than they could handle. The word frenetic should not be part of a dining experience. And to top it off there were 2 large loud groups in rooms behind us and to our right. Our waiter was a kind young man who did all he could and that was a plus but he and the head waiter (apparently) offered a not so heartfelt "I apologize". We have been to Elizabeths before. They can do better than that. Don't be greedy.
Dinner was outstanding! Best dinner restaurant we ate at in Savannah!
My husband and I made reservations for our wedding anniversary. We ordered the chef’s tasting menu with a wine pairing. Everything was absolutely superb- each course offered a distinct flavor and the wine was perfect. Kim is clearly a very experienced and well spoken server- his introduction of each menu item and each wine was extremely accurate and knowledgeable. A younger gentleman also helped wait on us- I regret I didn’t catch his name. While not as tailored as Kim, his enthusiasm to provide excellent service was delightful.
The entire evening was a memorable experience and we could not be happier.
Perfect birthday dinner- beautiful antique building- soft ambiance, impeccable service, and delicious food! I could not have asked for anything more.
Great place for a quiet romantic dinner. We try to stop when we are going through Savannah.
Terrific food. If you are looking for authentic Savannah cuisine prepared and served by a world class team, this is the place. Really an outstanding meal set in a historic manor. Highly recommend.
We've been to Elizabeth's many times over the years. While it is consistent, this time we found that
it has gotten 'played'. While there was nothing overtly wrong, there was nothing extraordinary. For first time diners, it might be rated higher; for those who've been there and around, it is now nothing special.
Service was elegant even though the waiter was a tad subservient, whispering in our ears and 'hovering';
my wife found him downright 'creepy'. It will be a long time before we venture there again from Hilton Head.
After living in Savannah for four years now, we decided to go to Elizabeth's on 37th to celebrate our 42nd anniversary which was on a weeknight. We were seated in a dining room with only other two tables occupied by other diners. (There was one other pair of diners in another room.) While the nearby twosome table conversed quietly, the racket from a table of eight diners having a business dinner was a "surround sound" experience that was extremely annoying, overpowering my husband's and my own conversation. (That is not the fault of the restaurant.)
The service at Elizabeth on 37th was exquisite and polished, provided by a very knowledgeable staff. The food was also very good ... excellent, in fact. However, there was nothing on the menu that was innovative or exciting in any way—strictly classical selections from decades ago, which is why we had put off dining there before. My husband and I both ordered the beef tenderloin with an au poivre sauce which was perfectly cooked to our specifications, as I like mine "moo-ing." But thank goodness we did not order an appetizer, as the main course was so rich and filling that we could barely finish it. We ended up sharing a single dessert.
Since we knew in advance that the offerings were neither novel nor inventive, the restaurant met our expectations of classic and rich Southern cuisine. But if you go, bring money, because the prices are exceedingly high—especially the wine list. We are glad that we went once, but now that we have checked Elizabeth's off of our bucket list, there is no need to return.
Was skeptical about Elizabeth’s being worth the $ but it was well worth it. The food was unique and well done without being pretentious. We tried many fine dining restaurants while in Savannah for 4 months. Elizabeth’s has the best food though not the best ambiance.
This place is a must if you are in Savannah. Everything was delicious. We did all the specials and let our server Kerri handle the wine pairings. She and Ricky were fantastic servers. The chocolate dessert was decadent and worth the calories. One of our most favorite restaurants of all time.
Our first trip to Elizabeth. Great food, farm to table type freshness was obvious. They made a special vegetarian option for my wife. Pork chop was best I ever had. Well worth the price for the experience.
Excellent dining experience. Would definitely dine there again when in Savannah. Food preparation was perfect and service was great.
We were in Savannah sightseeing & I found Elizabeth’s had high reviews so I decided to make a reservation. It did not disappoint! The Serv was spectacular as was the food.
We enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Elizabeth's. So very glad we booked thru open table where I could express our desire for a quieter table. When we were first seated I was disappointed we were put in a direct path for the wait staff and near a large rather loud table. I would not have complained but the hostess or waitress had seen my request from open table and immediately corrected the oversite without me having to say anything. So nice. The food was excellent and creative I thought. Very attentive wait staff.
We had a lovely meal. Ordered the seafood special appetizer in a parmesan crust basket. Delish! The “dirty rice” with crab & flounder special entree was absolutely wonderful. Everyone at our table loved their food. The steak’s sauce was delicious, the honemade pasta with vegetables & cream sauce. Devine. We even had a glass of unique effervescent Moscato (Italian). It was so good. Do eat here.
The food was outstanding. We were a large party with two children, even though the restaurant does not have a children’s menu they were so accommodating. They offered to make anything the kids would like. Most of my group ordered an appetizer, the ones who did not were brought a small sample of soup, and the children were brought fresh fruits and cream. The meals were perfect portions and delicious.
Food was mostly delicious! Only downside was the seasoning on the pork chop—the rub had cinnamon in and and my husband wasn’t really a fan. I just wish they would have mentioned that in the discription somewhere. Everything else was excellent!
