                      Awesome experience! Food as performance art - most enjoyable if you are non-vegan. The Shrimpish Creole is mind blowing, as is the Vegan Caviar. Service was exquisite. Great experience.

                      An amazing experience. Truly. Knowledge staff. Delicious cocktails and filling, vegan creations. Truly artwork. Every detail was considered from offering to take coats to carrying drinks for us from the bar to our tables. The presentation by the staff of the dishes as well as the presentation of the dishes themselves, were outstanding. A talented chef and sommelier. An experienced and engaging bartender. Courteous and passionate staff. I learned a lot and tasted so many unique, pleasing flavors. Talent exudes. I will return.

                      Best restaurant in DC! The theme of the night was Italian seafood, and while it was all plant-based, much of it was gustatorily and even visually indistinguishable from the real thing - but way better for the ocean and the animals in it! Loved it.

                      SO GOOD. We got the tasting menu with the wine pairing and wow it was exquisite! I was especially impressed with the “shrimp” and grits dish. The shrimp both looked and tasted so realistic and the grits were creamy with just the right texture. Wonderful experience- I will definitely be back to try the next menu!

                      Outstanding food! My partner (non-vegan) and I (vegan) ate here for our birthday dinner and he was really impressed. He said the sausage in the Shrimpish Creole was indistinguishable from meat. The wine pairing -- especially the dessert pairing-- was sensational.

                      We wished there was more straight forward non gimmick vegetable dishes. Main dish was excellent and wish more of that approach to others dishes. Caviar was sad. Non of elements worked. You shouldn’t offer. Pancake was medium rare and doughy at center. Cheese plate, need to be work on texture and imitate hard cheese. Over all, it’s tough business as value. I know and you know that you can make much more tasty dishes but you think you cannot charge double for simple vegetable dishes. But I think you can charge double as long as dishes makes people “wow, vegetables are so sweet, tasty.” Feels like even Elizabeth’s…. Moving trend of crafty gimmicky food like main stream. I don’t find valuable on all popular new restaurants in the DC. Annabelle, contemporary American (public), to me America French is one of a few places never disappoint. There food is not gimmicks.

                      Wonderful and superb fine dining experience. The vegan food was out of this world and the support staff was on point.

                      For a special occasion, I can’t imagine a better place for vegan cuisine! Everything was made to feel like an art piece and we were amazed to have tried so many delicious, innovative dishes…. The service was INCREDIBLE and once of the best aspects. Just know— it’s pricy. Not a complaint, as this is a true “experience,” but be aware that you’ll be paying for the best.

                      We hadn't been to Elizabeth's in a few years due to the pandemic and somewhat uneven quality in a very expensive tasting menu, but thought we'd give it another try. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that a new chef had been brought in and the food quality was now consistently excellent: the dessert in particular was among the best I've ever had. My only suggestion would be for the clearly talented chef to venture beyond mimicry of animal-based foods for future tasting menus: the chef made a very convincing and delectable plant-based egg with yolk, and the optional "caviar" appetizer seemed intriguing enough, but why reinforce and retread such a conventional animal-based paradigm when the money and the talent is available to create gastronomic experiences unique to the vegetable kingdom?

                      This was one of the best dining experiences we’ve had! My husband and I went for date night, and it was perfect. The food was delicious and the chef is very talented! Vegan or not, this restaurant is a MUST try!

                      Seriously one of the best meals my husband and I have ever had. So many flavors and creative fusions, I loved hearing each description. Lots of good drink options as well. Such a good experience. Their menu changes monthly so I can’t wait to go back.

                      Celebrated my daughter’s birthday by going to the most extraordinary vegan restaurant. I was staying in town near by and just happened to notice the listing on OT. It was an amazing experience. If you want to slow down and experience exquisite service and culinary delights, Elizabeth’s is the place. Loved the selections on the pre fixe and the wonderful wine parings. Only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Be prepared for a 20% addl fee but well worth it.

                      This last Christmas I decided to give my kids and their spouses a gift of a meal that would have the same meaning as a cherished present. After a long covid lockout a fine dining family experience had new meaning and appeal, and being able to help the industry recover seemed the patriotic thing to do. I didn’t need to think twice about where we should go. If you haven’t been, you are in for an “experience” in the culinary arts. Forget the fact that it is a vegan restaurant and get ready for a five course meal that will span 2 1/2 hours of amazement. Each dish is a complex use of astounding ingredients, amazing technique, and photographic beauty. As impressive as the detailed written descriptions of each dish are, the insight and complete detail provided by your server makes you want to take notes. And this is after the dish has been presented in choreographed synchronization to each in your party by their own server. For one lucky member of your party their server is likely to be Elizabeth herself who is as gracious and sharing as her staff. I knew I made the right choice when my son and son-in-law, who are traditional carnivores, were just as thrilled with the gift. Enjoy your experience!

                      Their 20% house service fee (not the server’s tip of 20%) was a surprise. It should have been clearly listed on the menu and online.
