Ultra sophisticated and sumptuous, this all vegan menu is dazzling in presentation and delightful on the palate. The organic wine pairings just send the flavors through the stratosphere. Impeccable service to boot— just can’t say enough. Will savor the memory for a long while, and dream of returning.
Fantastic food and experience at Elizabeth's Gone Raw. Look forward to returning soon.
Our experience at Elizabeth’s Gone Raw was absolutely amazing! The service from moment you walk through the doors was impeccable! We added the wine tasting to go along with our 6 course meal and I would recommend this for anyone! Also this was our 3rd time back and they had something new to experience, the cheese board! Of course we will be back for a 4th time and beyond!
I met THE Elizabeth, she provided us with excellent service and a beautiful explanation of their custom menu!
Food was absolutely delicious. The drinks were well crafted. Will be back for sure.
A review cannot do this experience justice. My wife and I shared our anniversary at Elizabeth's. Each course of the tasting menu was a new gastronomic adventure concocted from pure vegetables. While some mocked animal proteins (the "tuna" tartare") others merely let the plant based products shine on their own merits. The staff were the utmost professionals and entertained my incredulity ("how do you make a vegan blue cheese?) with their own wonder and discovery.
As the menu changes, we will undoubtedly be back.
Outstanding experience! Wine pairing is completely overpriced, but service and food are just amazing.
As always - probably the best Vegan restaurant on the East Coast, at least, and certainly our favorite.
This was truly the best meal we’ve ever had. My husband and I were visiting from Hampton Roads, Virginia and it was definitely worth the drive. We never knew plant-based food could be so innovative, thoughtful and imaginative. Chef Francisco’s menu is a culinary marvel - even for people who don’t follow a plant-based lifestyle. We felt the service was also incredible. Our server took the time to explain each menu item and ingredient, and shared with us the thought behind all of the dishes. It made the experience so much more participatory and enjoyable. We are grateful that we had the opportunity to dine here, and we will definitely be back.
The food is incredible and we had such a fun evening. It’s great value and we will definitely be back. We’d like to thank the staff for the impeccable service and attentiveness.
The restaurant ambiance is gorgeous, the staff is professional and courteous, the food is always a devine adventure with the monthly tasting menus.
Elegant and ine of the most unique and creative cuisines. Unwxpected flavors and textures and tropes traditional dishes reconceptualized!!
It was a very festive atmosphere. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm, professionalism, spirit, and passion. It was a wonderful experience.
From start to finish everything from the cocktails, food, wine, service, ambiance and decor were all amazing. Such a treat and experience! Wish there could be more places like Elizabeth’s in other cities as they truly set the bar for vegan fine dining for us. Looking forward to our return.
So impressed with EGR! Each dish was delicious and uniquely thought out. Our poor server had difficultly remembering the names and components of each dish, but he was very kind. Will definitely be back!
Incredible dining experience!!! Absolutely will be back soon.
The food is always phenomenal, you can't go wrong with this place.
Exciting food, spotless service, overall amazing experience. Too bad I was visiting from nyc and I won’t have a chance to go to elisabeth’s more often.
I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Elizabeth’s Gone raw. The experience started with Elizabeth herself calling to confirm the reservation. This thoughtful touch was really appreciated. We opted for the additional caviar and it may have been the most delicious thing we ate that evening. The food was some of the finest food we’ve had in dc regardless of whether it was plant based or not. Every dish was beautifully plated which only accented the prominent flavors on display in each dish. I complimented Elizabeth on her Kale chips and she even told me I could email her for the recipe! AND She sent me home with a bag. Ive been on a run of going to prixe fixe meals lately that have been impressive in design but left me with this feeling of being trapped and wanting out of the restaurant with an extended dining time. I didn’t have that feeling at all at EGR. From the front staff, the bartender, our servers and Elizabeth -everyone was professional and contributed to a lovely experience. It was money well spent. I don’t know if ever ever left a review but felt compelled to comment on our great time. Thank you !
Everything about our evening was perfection. We will definitely be back.
What an amazing time. The food and wine pairings were delicious. The plating was beautiful. The ambiance was somehow bright and antique at the same time. The caviar was amazing as was everything else just about. The desert left a little to be desired with the papaya sorbet, but was still full of flavor.
I love that this place shows that plant-based foods can absolutely be elevated and flavorful. It was so nice to be able to eat every single thing on the menu and enjoy it with confidence.
Highly recommend, vegan or not!!
Did not know they update the menu every month, this is our second time visiting and we'll be back for more. Creative, delicious and nutritious!
This is the best Vegan restaurant on the East Coast, if not the entire country.
This was a surprise birthday dinner with my wife, I'm the plant base, clean food one,(husband), have to say my wife really out did herself in finding and selecting Elizabeth Raw, This was a amazing choice, the tasting menu was EXTREMELY NICE AND TASTY, especially since I didn't know a place of this calbair existed, Food was of 5☆☆☆☆☆ quality, Excellent!!! Elizabeth, the chef and staff are very knowledgeable and helpful, we will be returning, kale chips are the best!!!
Kudos to Elizabeth and her staff.
My girlfriend and I came here to celebrate our birthdays, and could not have been more impressed. The food and drinks were top notch across the entire pre-fix menu. Every course left us in awe; we didn’t want the meal to end! The kale chips snack for between courses were especially delightful. The portions may look small but they are filling and we left satisfied. It was also extremely special to have the owner herself serve us and tell us personally about every course. We will definitely be back again!
An amazing experience. Food is out of this world, our third time there and each time we get pleasantly surprised with innovation in food preparation and presentation. While it is not a place one goes to every month since the price is on the higher end, it is well worth the visit more than once.
We had an amazing experience not only was the food delicious but the service as well. We will definitely be coming back!
We came to celebrate my best friend’s 50th birthday. From start to finish, this was the best dining experience we’ve all had. Chef Francisco Hernandez has a gift, and Elizabeth was gracious and attentive to us the entire evening. We’re all still daydreaming about the algae oil caviar, the cauliflower mushroom cake, and the vegan cheese board! Heavenly!
Best vegan fine dining restaurant in America. Recommend getting wine pairing as well.
Best plant-based restaurant in the DC area. Feast of flavors and discovery. The menu never repeats itself. Wonderful ambiance and Elizabeth is the perfect host! Excellent wine and drink selection.
My childhood friend is vegan and I like eating healthy . I thought this would be a great place to celebrate her birthday and life . Every dish was delicious and creative . I learned so much about the transformation of the vegetables and ingredients . My waiter was very knowledgeable and I asked a lot of questions about that flavors . What he didn’t know he asked the chef. Also, Elizabeth was a great host. felt like I was eating in her dining room in her home . I left full and satisfied . I plan to go back for next month’s menu .
Phenomenal food, service, and ambiance. Deserves all the stars and accolades. You won't regret coming here.
BEWARE THE SERVICE FEE! We went here for our anniversary on Valentine’s Day. They had their pri fix 6 course menu which was all delicious and presented beautifully. The wine pairing was also perfect. The service was great and everyone was extremely professional and knowledgeable. The staff acted as a team and were all helping each other out which was awesome. The only thing that was upsetting was at the end of the meal they charged a 20% “service fee” which was not explained prior. When we asked about it to the waitress, she replied it was “for the staff so they don’t make $5.50 an hour” which i completely agree with fair wages. The answer was very vague and did not answer if that was the gratuity or if it was expected to leave more. We were unsure if we needed to leave an additional 20% or not for tip. We are all about supporting small businesses always and especially through this time but did not wanted to make sure not to over or under tip or what the expectation was. We thought that expectation to tip 40% of the meal was ridiculous so we added an extra 10% still making the price 30% of our meal, bringing it to well over $400. We were happy to splurge for this event and to pay for the service we received but the vagueness and the unsure expectation of the encounter threw us off. The website is the only place we read about the service fee which we looked at during this time in hopes to get a more definitive answer. On the website it says the fee is to ensure that staff make a fair hourly wage (i support this!) and that gratuity is optional and left to your discretion. Still extremely vague. Due to this, we were frustrated and when asked by our friends how the experience was, we would bring this situation up frequently. Again, everything was wonderful and lovely and delicious, but make sure to understand there is a fee before dining.
Everything. Was perfect!
Truly a DC gem. A unique and special experience of fine dining and innovative cuisine.
Amazing place, incredible service and food!
We had an amazing experience!! The food was over the top wonderful and unique. A perfect tasting menu. The server was nice but forgot a few things. Ambiance is traditional elegant.
If you're vegan or looking for a fine dinning vegan experience, please come to Elizabeth's Gone Raw. Idk how they aren't on the Michelin guide or have a star!
I've been wanting to come here for a while and have recently become vegetarian. As soon as, I saw they had dinner plans for Valentine's Day, I hopped on Open Table and made a reservation (2 weeks in advance ya'll).
There was a prefix 6 course menu ($85 per person) that all guest had to have. In addition there was an a la cart option of caviar and cheese plate (each $40) . On top of that, my boyfriend and I decided to splurge and get the wine pairing too ($40 per person).
So we basically got all the things and started us off with vegan caviar. Like wut? What does that even taste like? Well it was AMAZING and if they ever had a happy hour with this, I would totally get it again. Honestly, I think it was better than "regular" caviar which is hella salty.
I'll add the menu photo below, honestly it was a total experience and you can't go wrong with anything. I do want to mention the oddest thing for me personally was the sauerkraut and celery sorbet but it wasn't that bad lol. Also, the wine pairing was good BUT I think it could of been better in which is truly was paired to go with a specific dish. There were a lot of international wine but it would of been great to see some regional wines as well.
Also, the cheese plate! You could have these either before the meal or before dessert. What a presentation! Honestly, vegan cheese is....interesting to say the least but this was so flavorful! Also, I honestly never liked Brie cheese but this vegan brie cheese was BOMB.
To sum this review up, come and have a true food adventure and be amazed!
Food was incredible
Service impeccable! Great dining experience. If you have not visited you Must try!!
This is the place for a romantic dinner. The service was exceptional and the food absolutely delicious. The suggested wine pairings are spot on and the presentation of each course is very appealing. I would definitely dine here again.
