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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

2nd to none! Expensive but service is great and the food fantastic. Great way to show special folks you want the best for them.I would recommend adding some wines both red & white options in the $25-30 per bottle price range. The majority of the wine selection is in the $75 up per bottle range.

We just had a wonderful dinner at Elizabeth on 37th.
We had the grouper Celeste and the special for tonight, the red snapper. Not only were the main dishes tasty but the potatoes and the vegetables were too. Everything was absolutely delicious. Our server Kim was knowledgeable and extremely professional. We enjoyed listening to him describe wines and pairings and dinner options. Kim’s whole team did a great job.
We will definitely be back on a regular basis.

A mixed bag. Tasteful decor, cozy setting. Service quality one of the best in town. Vegetarian soup very good. Entrees came very (almost too) quickly. Flounder special rice had very little rice. Fish was uncharacteristically over moist. Triple chocolate cake was excellent. Noise level became unusually loud, courtesy of a large table in the middle of the room...girls night out, complete with ringing phone.
