this place is such an upset. the food is unremarkable and the place just leaves you wondering what on earth people who left positive reviews were thinking. a lot of the dishes have some play on curry flavors and really reduce vegan cuisine to just that when there is so much possibility. The place seems to be trying to be super fancy as they do make a big effort to have good presentation and service. There is a set menu ($80 pp + 20% service charge) without any concern for preference or dietary needs. I left having severe acid reflux symptoms because of the tomato water starter (which is honestly gross) combined with some of the other dishes. The almond soup dish was very bland. The dessert was actually fine.

This place is worth every penny. Omg so incredibly creative and delicious.

You’ve never eaten anything like this before — it is a culinary experience that dazzles your tastebuds.

Imagine eating the best kale chips of your life — and that’s just what they offer instead of bread.

The menu changes every 4-6 weeks and each time they come up with spectacular dishes

LOVE LOVE this place.

I am not a vegan and I truly lived all of the food. They do a really great job, it is somewhat expensive for a meatless meal, but there is nothing else like it anywhere in the tristate area so I feel like it is well worth it. Thanks Elizabeth’s, I’ll probably be back next season.

Innovative food, brilliant dining experience, perfect way to spend a special occasion. The food was surprisingly filling for vegan / raw food but more importantly incredibly delicious! Thank you Elizabeth and her head chef and staff for the lovely experience.

My wife and I were absolutely blown away by the quality of the food and service at Elizabeth's Gone Raw. We celebrated our anniversary there and could not have chosen a better spot. It's incredible how much flavor the chef is able to get out of simply ingredients, especially when they're all vegan. The knowledge of the server and her team's attentiveness to us was exceptional. We can't wait to go back again!

We experienced the last night of the summer menu. The very best of the last tastes of the season. Each course was finely tuned with complementary - not competing flavours. From the zinging lemon zest powder on the amuse bouche to the hint of cinnamon within the purple cauliflower cappuccino, and the magical pairing of beets and strawberry ice cream, the chef knows how to tease your tastebuds. The wine pairing was exceptional and took us across the globe with wines from Sonoma, France, Italy and Australia. The wait staff were exceptionally talented as they quietly and discreetly went about their work. A true ensemble. Thank you all for a wonderful end to summer.

Elizabeth's couldn't have been a lovelier time. My husband and I got the tasting menu for our anniversary and had a ball with the creative cuisine, the beautiful ambience, and the best service I've ever had in DC, and nearly my life! The waitstaff was so well trained, courteous, and knowledgeable, and the food was beyond compare. Couldn't recommend more highly!

When dining vegan, it is rare to find a restaurant that caters to you that is also very upscale, and even offers creative cocktails. I mean, just because you forgo eating animals doesn't mean you don't have the palette for a handmade drink. My dining companion is allergic to cow dairy and was relieved that he didn't have to discuss it with the wait staff. The courses kept coming, one more inventive than the next. I only have one complaint. Here, much effort is put into creating the taste of cheese, cream, fish and meat. The kitchen succeeds, but I actually like the taste of vegetables better. Still, it was a treat, and yes I would go back!

Absolutely incredible experience! Thank you to the entire staff! It was one of my dreams to visit this restaurant after an interview I heard with Elizabeth and Francisco a couple of years ago. I live in Seattle so wasn't sure how long it would take me to make it to DC for the first time. Fortunately, an important medical conference lured me to DC so I immediately booked my reservation for my husband and I. Plan on coming back next year!!!

I enjoyed the wine pairing with the tasting menu, and my husband ordered maple bourbon old fashioned x 2 (amazing!!). The food looked and tasted like art. The ambiance was romantic, perfect lighting and good music (Dave Brubeck when we arrived). Couldn’t have been better.

It's pretty amazing what they do Elizabeth's Gone Raw. I must admit I'm a little skeptical of having "fine dining" in the same sentence as "raw" and "vegan." Mind = blown. We will come back again and again. Every dish was inventive and delicious. The cocktails were nice compliments and we appreciated the efforts of the staff to make sure that we had drinks that we were happy with. My compliments to the chef, the owner, and the entire staff!

As the reservation was in my name, the staff seemed to only acknowledge and speak to my
dining companion. Not sure what type of White Privileged Elitism they feel they are entitled
to, but to be completely ignored and disregarded as a human being, dining in their restaurant,
is beyond appalling. I attempted to make eye contact and engage - yet, to no avail.
Very unpleasant experience.

Elizabeth's Gone Raw was a 5-star experience all around. I was skeptical (never having been to a raw restaurant before -- Elizabeth's is mostly raw) but the food was amazing. Very cerebral yet delicious and every dish was perfectly balanced. Service was top shelf -- everyone was incredibly nice and eager to help. Atmosphere was perfect: quaint and very elegant. Perfect dining experience. Elizabeth introduced herself and was very pleasant.

Delicious food and drink in a really cool space. A vegan fine dining restaurant isn't easy to come by, so this is a much appreciated place. Just go easy on the drinks (they are small) or you could end spending twice as much as you had planned. Highly recommend Elizabeth's for vegans and non vegans alike!

Thanks to Chef for his innovative, inspirational and delicious cuisine and thanks so much to Elizabeth for her class and conversation and careful attention to detail! I highly recommend EGR to all who want to dine at a restaurant which has something very special in DC.
