Everyone should dine here at least once.

If for no other reason than to experience a multi-course meal so delectable you'll never think of vegan cuisine the same again.

You'll dine in elegant surroundings where each culinary work of art placed in front of you is only rivalled by the exquisite artwork hanging on the walls.

My only regret is not having ordered the wine pairing flight as well. Not a mistake I shall make again.

Elizabeth is a wonderful culinary tour guide and each supporting staff member was without exception, perfect.

Treat yourself to a delightful dining experience including a delicious gourmet dinner, that just happens to be vegan.

What an amazing experience. Plant based vegan food tasting better than any other food. The wine pairing, service and presentation could not be any better.

We met the owner Elizabeth who is an amazing and talented foodie.

Food was very disappointing. We are vegetarians and love most any vegetarian and vegan food. As pricey as it was, there was nothing special about the food. Little flavor to most of it.

Slow and inattentive service throughout the night. Took over 15 minutes to get our cocktails each time.

Server did not come over to us until we had been seated for 10 minutes. We asked for information about the wine pairing and nobody ever came by to tell us more about it.

Quite the unique experience. The people with me often can't agree on one place to eat as they have widely varying tastes in food. But everyone in the party agreed that this was an exquisitely well done meal. Not one to be repeated frequently, but nevertheless quite special. Satisfaction all around. Almost every course of the tasting menu left you wanting more, and the wine pairing was near perfect. The room was cozy and warm, like eating at a friend's very nice home. By the end of the evening we were comfortably full, and more than a little pleased with ourselves for being willing to try this experience.

The highlight of our get-away to Washington DC. We had read about this fine establishment in many dining magazines and we were dying to try it. It did not disappointment. It was like being inside an episode of chef’s table, the service, the music, the lighting, the sheer showmanship was incredible. It was just as entertaining as it was delicious. The owner/create of the establishment was even stoping at tables to clear them, and ensure each table had the experience she intended from the moment they stepped in the door.

Don’t think! Reserve a table!

Been wanting to come here for awhile and so glad I finally did!! From the moment we arrived on through departure we were made to genuinely feel like we were both royalty and family. Service was impeccable. Absolutely nothing was rushed. Two of our four chose the wine pairing along with the dinner. Our server and the sommelier explained the food and wine in detail at every course. Each course was both a work of beauty and sensational taste. All around a wonderful experience. Will definitely be back for special occasions or just to splurge.

As a vegan, Elizabeth's is my happy place. I don't have to make decisions or ask a million questions or be 'that person' at the table. I just float in and get taken care of. I can take my friends who don't have dietary restrictions and they're as happy as I am. The staff is so friendly and attentive, the food is out of this world, and the atmosphere is posh but approachable.

Best dining experience I’ve ever had. Elizabeth herself served us! I went for my birthday with 6 friends and wow. I’m blown away and so incredibly happy that this place exists. The food is incredible, the ambiance is perfection, the service impeccable. Even my omnivore friends were thoroughly impressed. I can’t recommend this place enough.

I almost hate to rave about this relatively unknown gem, but I certainly want to ensure it stays in business, so will just add my voice to the chorus. Our dinner was intriguing, delicious, filling and guilt-free -- all for a reasonable price in a beautiful venue! Love the dishware, the glassware and the attentive but unobtrusive service. Could pretty much live on the kale chips.

Our third visit to Elizabeth’s Gone Raw and we love it as much or more each time. We make a point of reserving a table when we know we will be in DC. An elegant and special evening without being fussy. Presentation and service is flawless and the food boggles the mind. Delicious beyond description. You won’t believe it is all vegan and raw.

Our second visit did not disappoint. From the innovative cocktails with the addictive kale chips at the bar to the fantastic fig ice cream finale, this was a wonderful experience. The plates are small but beautifully presented, so that at the end of the seven course meal we did not feel overly full. My husband tried the optional wine pairing with his meal and all but one of the wines were a perfect match with the food. The exception was a red wine with the turnip dish that just didn't seem to work. We love that the menu changes each month - can't wait to see what they come up with for next year.

This restaurant was INCREDIBLE. The ambiance, the service, and the FLAVORS. At first, I was skeptical that the portions would make me full but I walked away, ready to burst - but not in a sickening way. All of the food was so carefully crafted and beautifully flavored.

ALSO - i should mention that I took my omnivore boyfriend here and he was more than impressed. I'm not a raw foods vegan in any sort of way and I just absolutely was blown away by everything. AND THE KALE CHIPS. I hate normal Kale Chips. These were amazing.
