The owner Mike could not have been nicer. Very attentive, careful in description of dishes, took time to tell me about the property. Remembered my request that this was a birthday celebration. Lovely place and one should dress nicely to go there.

It was wedding anniversary and we wanted it to be elegant. We hired a limo and invited our closest friends to join us. We wanted the dining experience to also be elegant and once again Elizabeth on 37th did not disappoint.
The service was impeccable and the wait staff is well informed with entertaining food descriptions. Great cocktails, too.
We recommend for special occasions and even no particular occasion.

Food was excellent. Decor is outdated and needs to be updated. Service was at times good, but several 'mistakes' that shouldn't happen at this price point of a restaurant. Overall very nice dinner and excellent wine.

Elizabeth on 37th was lovely, and the staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. We went for an 80th birthday celebration traveling from two states. We all ordered the chefs specials, which were flounder and snapper. The main courses were delicious with sufficient portions.

I’ve traveled a lot to include both coasts, Europe and the Caribbean. Your appetizers are proportionately overpriced for the portion size. The crab cake and scallop were absolutely delicious, but $17 for one portion was extreme.

One additional comment. An 80th birthday is no small feat. Making my mother feel special was my first priority. Although you said HBD, more could have been done to ensure she felt special.

Elegant, quiet, extremely pleasant place to dine. Wait staff is exceptional. Chef extends several courtesies during the meal, which are appreciated. Very fresh seafoods without any of the odor associated with less than fresh products. We are long term customers (since they opened) and eat there each time we pass through Savannah.

Couldn’t have asked for more or for better in everything. I asked for a quiet table as two of my party had hearing issues and that was well accommodated. Because of the hearing issues it was difficult for one of the members of my party to hear the description of the evening special dishes not on the menu. It would be nice if those specials could be printed as well as verbal. Thank you for any considerations you can give to that suggestion..

This is a charming old house The noise level is different depending on the people seated in each room. We had the mushroom soup which was the best
I have had and scallops with tuna tartare and wasabi cream. For desert we had apple blueberry pie with ice cream. Everything was quite tasty and I recommend the meal.

For four years we've tried to dine at Elizabeth. My daughter graduated this year and we finally made it to the restaurant. It is a very non-descript building with no landscaping of note. The evening we dined, it was pouring rain and there is no off street parking available. Tip: The parking in front is available after 6:00p--be sure to read the sign and take these primo spaces if available. Once inside, everything changes--the interior is a beautifully appointed. My kids (14 and 22) noted, however, that it reminded them of Disney's Haunted Mansion. Service was a bit odd to me. A lovely lady welcomed us and served our drinks and then a stately gentleman provided information on the menu and took our order. Unfortunately, he wasn't very warm to our table and that had an effect on my sense of the restuarant as a whole. It almost felt like we were a nuisance to an otherwise fine evening, or that formal protocol negated any casual conversation. Maybe I'm missing something, but I would've like to get to know him better. The food was spectacular--everything I expected of the restaurant. I had the low country boil special that evening and I have never had a better piece of fish highlighted perfectly by a sausage potato hash and shrimp. The desert menu runs the gamut and all five of us had our desires met by the wide variety--including our gluten free friend. The ambience was perfect for conversation, although the tables were a bit cramped and wait staff had a hard time getting around us; didn't Iike that so much. All in all a definite must do in Savannah, but I think I'll venture to other restaurants on future visits.

Elizabeth on 37th was a beautiful restaurant, and the food was delicious. The service was lacking, which we found odd because we had two servers. We weren’t offered dessert menus and just given the check before finishing our entrees, so it felt like we were being rushed out. We did ask to get a dessert menu and ordered the Savannah cream cake, which was not fresh, and tasted like it’d been sitting in a refrigerator for two days. Other than that, the ambiance was fantastic, and the rest of the meal was delicious.

I first went to Elizabeth's on a trip to Savannah more than ten years ago and remembered it as one of the best dining experiences I've ever had ... and I've had a lot of pretty good dining experiences! Just went again the other night, and no disappointments - still among the best dining experiences ever.

It was my husband’s bday so I booked it far in advance. When we checked in they apparently did not check us in properly because we were declined our Open Table pts. Although we could not eat the cheesy rolls (no dairy) the orange marmalade & amuse buche were delicious as was the greens with watermelon salad. The meal itself was tasty and they did accommodate the dairy-free diet restriction. They only offered sorbet as a dairy-free dessert so we could not finish the birthday meal with a festive dessert @ Elizabeth’s. The service was quite formal (not the Southern hospitality we’ve come to expect) however, they were efficient and not intrusive. The food was quite good but their failure to acknowledge our reservation to Open Table put a damper on what would have been a much higher rating. Beware if you use Open Table to book your table. Make sure they check you off when you go to eat there. (Maybe it was an isolated situation but in all the years we have been on Open Table we have NEVER had this problem.)
