Big bill, little to eat. I felt like a rabbit grazing from the forest floor. I understand the typical American diet is bad for our health and bad for the environment, but paying $250 for two people for what is basically an extended course of salad (2 glasses of wine)? I felt we were being taken.
Incredible experience. Best Gin cocktail I’ve ever had. Food was sensationally beautiful. I was personally a fan of the ceviche and the sorbet for this months tasting. Although all of the dishes were beautiful.
Excellent experience, phenomenal playlist, and even got to meet the owner!! Worth every dollar !
So I took my wife here for valentine's day since she's a vegan. I figured we'd go to this place since it had some good reviews. First, it was really expensive even for valentine's day. Food and wine was $155 per person but knowing that going in lessened the sting of that. Now the food on the other hand... stung a lot for that price. We had 7 courses of food that tasted almost as if they grabbed the first 10 ingredients they could find in the cabinet to mix into each dish. We only "liked" maybe 2 of the dishes with one being the dried kale that is served the entire time you're there. A few of them we could not stomach and just pushed aside and waited for the next dish. Mind you, I'm sure there were some people that enjoyed their meal but not us and looking around there were quite a few that didn't and some even walked out and cut their meal short. I would not go back here and would recommend a basic vegan/vegetarian place if someone asked.
A really enjoyable experience, as a committed carnivore not the sort of place I’d normally have expected to enjoy as much as I did. The wine pairing was a little weak and featured mostly unexceptional wines, but the food had real highlights.
Excellent Service and Food. Would definitely return .
Amazing food. This was my second visit. Perfect experience.
The food was beautiful and tasty! I'm happy we chose this as an early Valentine's dinner, it was classy, romantic, yet not outrageously expensive. We also enjoyed the cocktails and wine; the bartender did a great job and the overall service was amazing!
Amazing Vegan Restaurant
Loved the creative take on vegan food, which is near-impossible to come by in DC for some reason. Unique space made it even more special. Service was pleasant and attentive, but not efficient. Settle in. Given the number of courses and small portion size this meal should have taken 2 hours. We were there for more than 3. I was ready to leave before dessert if we could have. Not leisurely paced, it was painfully slow. Still, I'll be back for the food and be prepared to spend a lot of time sitting with no food waiting.
This was our second time here and it was just as good as the first time. All the courses were delicious! The kale chips and cocktails were excellent as well.
My sister, a vegetarian, was in town, so I decided to try Elizabeth's Gone Raw with her. It was an enjoyable evening with very interesting food. Every dish was beautiful and the tastes were quite unique. The dishes are vegan and mostly raw. It was just as well to have a set menu because the food is so unique, it would be difficult to choose. If you are looking for a unique experience with interesting food that is well prepared, try Elizabeth's Gone Raw!
My daughter and I had a lovely dinner here on Friday, January 26th. The food is so delicious, beautifully presented and the ambiance is lovely. We also did the wine pairing which was great!
The restaurant is amazing and the tasting menu is awesome. I and my
Daughter came from Brazil to have a dinner in Elizabeth’s gone Raw
Delicious, inventive vegan food. Elizabeth has a very interesting story – ask her about why she founded the restaurant if she's there.
Beautiful ambiance, great service and delicious food! A wonderful choice for special occasions, particularly for vegans and vegetarians. Fine dining for vegans is not customarily available in other restaurants.
The experience at Elizabeth's Gone Raw is quite unique. The food is definitely interesting and different. The service is top notch and the ambience amazing. The only issue I had was the total cost at the end of the experience. I took my two adult children. It is $80/person or $240. I added the wine paring for myself which is $55/person which increased the total to $305. On top of this total they include a mandatory 20% service fee--which honestly should be already included in the $80 fixed fee. This brings the total up to $361. Then on top of this total there is a 10% DC tax increasing the total to $397. So, my $305 experience ended up being about a $400 experience in a matter of a few minutes!
This was my first visit to Elizabeth's Gone Raw and I cannot wait to go back!!! The vegan/raw tasting menu was phenomenal - the chef crafted each dish to be pleasing to every sense, and each dish was a new "WOW!!!" moment. As a vegetarian, it is hard to find good quality vegetarian meals that are not just cobbled together; the Chef clearly put a lot of thought into creating a variety of dishes to please everyone, and he succeeded! The atmosphere is a beautiful home, with wonderful art and the perfect lighting for a romantic meal. The staff were exceptional; this is a fine dining experience where each staff you interact with is knowledgeable, friendly, and anticipates what your needs might be. Elizabeth (the owner) is also a charming host who clearly loves food and people; this was our first visit and she treated us as if we were old friends who were returning to dine with her. This restaurant is a unique dining experience that should not be missed!
Top scores for ambiance, service, presentation, creativity and a cruelty-free menu. Flawless, even. Food was only ok, and for the price, not something I’d do again. The one phenomenal taste was the “bleu cheese” in an apricot.
Warning: Love letter. Elizabeth's Gone Raw is more than a meal-- it's an experience! Not only were the dishes some of the most creative and delicious I'd ever had, but even after 7 courses I didn't feel weighed down. Cheers to that!
Most pre fix- lengthier dinners can feel overwhelming; not here. The staff allows enough lull time between courses so you can digest (and discuss how amazing this food really is).
Another touch which really sealed the deal for me- Elizabeth herself engages with all customers AND clears the tables. I truly didn't want to leave. If you're questioning it- don't! Every aspect was spectacular and memorable.
I recommend trying the tasting menu which changes monthly. My palate agreed with the first dish the most—apricot & blue cheese. I would go again. It was fun.
