Just OK food.
This is an excellent restaurant!! My whole family loves going there. Wonderful food and great service!
As always... food and service are very good... very consistent place to go
We had a 7:15 reservation that we arrived for at 7:10. We checked in and the hostess told us it would be 10 to 15 minuets so we took a seat in the waiting area. At 7:30 I went up to check if we were close to being seated, after noticing people that got there after us were being seated before us. At 7:30 the hostess told me there was 1 more table of 2 in front of us then we were going to be seated. We watched 3 more groups of people that arrived after us be seated before us. We got up and left around 7:45. We went across the street to Blue Agave and were seated immediately and had some of the best service. Blue Agave has good food, atmosphere and is quick. We probably will not go to Elizabeth’s for a while.
The pizza and Stromboli are always great! I had Chicken Parmigiana this time, and it was really tasty, though it was a tad too salty. My husband had Linguine & Clams with white wine sauce - he thought it was bland and wasn't a big fan of the white wine sauce (thought it would have been better with marina sauce). However, we will definitely be back. Awesome.
I'm not usually one to leave a bad review, I usually just chalk it up to experience and avoid that restaurant in the future. But, I've had good experiences with Elizabeth's locations elsewhere. I have no ill will toward Elizabeth's but somebody really needs to pay attention to the training of waitstaff on North Battleground, so here goes.
I got together with old friends who I hadn't seen in a while, they live in Greensboro, I live well north near Belews Lake, so North Battleground Elizabeth's seemed like a good fit. We arrived and were seated immediately, I had a reservation but none was needed as the restaurant was half empty on a Saturday night. Other than this, first hint that something might be amiss was seemingly minor. We ordered cocktails and an appetizer. I ordered vodka tonic with lime, call vodka, Ketel One since that's what they had. Server mispronounced it. Same with the appetizer ordered next. Caprese, that was a little more annoying because it seemed as if she thought she was correcting me in calling it "Caprice."
But, the really irritating and disappointing thing was, I splurged a little and ordered their filet mignon special. I tend to like a sort of Pittsburgh style, seared on the outside, mid-rare within but that seems to stymie a lot of people so I just ordered it mid-rare to medium and asked that it be lightly seared on the outside. She seemed to understand. But, then the food arrives, the filet was not prepared in the manner requested, it was butterflied and medium well at best, not seared.
Very disappointing. Given the apparent ignorance of our server (despite her being a seemingly bright person otherwise, sort of mystifying), I blame her and not the kitchen.
Whoever is responsible for training waitstaff there is falling down on the job, she did not seem new. I think I understand why that Elizabeth's was half empty on a Saturday night. None of the others I've visited would have been.
Apologies, but I felt it was necessary to write this.
Our waitress needed additional training. Didn't bring enough plates for the number of people at our table. She reached in front of us to serve others. Again, not enough plates for entrees and when she finally brought them, after talking with others for awhile, the ones she brought were very cold. Asked if we needed anything, but kept on walking past us. Embarrassing for us as we had guests with us.
Went for a lovely Mother's Day lunch. Wasn't too crowded. Service was excellent! Food came out hot and very fast!
Our food was delicious that night and as leftovers the next day. Service was great too. The owner or manager is personable. Love this place.
Food was good. They were very busy with lots of families. Good value for the price point. Huge portions.
Great service and uniform, true team effort!
Not enough time between salads, appetizer and entree. Was in town for family weekend and was not really interested in a quick meal. We all felt rushed.
We were there in a party of 8. Just one person didn't like the food. The eggplant wasn't good.
The caring and hard working staff is a constant. The quality of the food is excellent and consistent. Mario runs a welcoming and truly wonderful restaurant.
Food was excellent. Service efficient and friendly. Mario, owner, visiting each table was impressive. Definitely will return!
Good menu selection. Pizza was very good. Linguini with shrimp was very tasty. Bread not up to snuff. Should have a crispy crust.
We had the neapolitan pizza and wings and it was great. We just shared a pitcher of beer and had a quiet casual meal on a saturday night. Service was speedy and food was tasty!
Very disappointed in the food and service. We were there on a busy Friday night and our waiter was so stressed. He didn't know what he was doing most of the time and had no manners towards his guest. Very unprofessional. The food tasted like it was out of cans or frozen section at the super market. So flavorless and bland. Nothing good here...skip it.
Elizabeth's pizza is a small town local joint. It's fun. We wen with our family of 12 after a day at the waterpark. The pizza was amazing. The wine list can be improved. I was given a glass of wine that should have been dumped after 3 days in an open bottle.
As usual, great food, good service. However, on this visit, the place was frigid...we sat, inside, with our jackets on throughout the meal. I know the kitchen gets hot but this was just too cold!
Always one of our favorites! Outstanding menu choices, food and service.
Always good and delicious. Friendly and comfortable. Large portions.
Elizabeth's is a great place for good Italian food at reasonable prices. Their servings are huge so bring an appetite, a friend, or plan on a to-go box. This is a good place for families with numerous large tables and a children's menu. All of the classic Italian dishes as well as pizza by the pie or slice.
It was good
Service was good and attentive; friendly. Salads and soups were good. But our entrees were not satisfying. My wife and I each selected a Stromboli or Calzone. In both cases the menu should offer only large or extra large as the "smalls" we ordered were huge. Mine was to have meat in it but there was SO much cheese there seemed to be little room for the meat. I love cheese but it was ridiculous. Mostly both were dough, cheese and a little of the advertised filling thrown in. Basically oversized cheese bread. Disappointing.
A real good experience. We still had to wait a while even with reservations.
Service was great and food came out really fast and hot. Great for lunchtime! Our table was set and ready for us with our Open Table reservation. Very nice.
To begin, I requested on my reservation via, Open Table, a table for 4 near the fireplace and in front of a TV. The reservation was for 630 in the middle of the dinner rush. When we got there, they sat us right away. The table was in front of the fireplace and TV. The hostess was incredible and polite. The waitress was very very friendly and very responsible. We were joking and having fun, and she was just going with us. She was pleasant and got us everything we wanted and needed and very quickly. The food was also very good. I would recommend this place without hesitation.
Service was slow and ineffective. The food was mediocre. We made reservations and the hostesses were thoroughly confused about the reservation and where to seat us. We had to ask to have the table cleaned. We will not go back.
I wanted a casual pasta place for dinner. I really made a rare mistake in my restaurant choice.. I ordered Shrimp Scampi and the plate looked like it was filled with melted butter. Scampi has very little butter and should be mostly olive oil. It was tasteless and the past overcooked. I put hot sauce and red pepper and salt on it and ate most of it because I had not eaten all day. The wine was lousy too. The only passable portion of my dinner was the small side salad. I was also seated in the middle of a large group that was having a presentation behind, in front and to my right. This place is not really an open table restaurant in my opinion.
I always go to Elizabeth's, but this was a very special event, my 50th birthday. We had a great time ( as always ). Family, food, and fun what more could we ask for.
My husband and some friends celebrated his birthday at Elizabeth's, the staff were wonderful - so helpful! Thanks so much Mario! The food as always was outstanding!
We eat at this restaurant at least once a week and sometimes more. We have never had bad service and the food is always very good. We have also used them several times for group catering. It feels like home when the owner makes his rounds to check on his patrons. The environment is great for groups, a place to catch up with friends, to grab a seat at the bar when dining alone, and even for a romantic dinner for two with some good wine.
Our group has met several times at this Elizabeth's Pizza. The service and preparedness of the staff and restaurant is always exceptional. We feel welcome and ready to have our discussion and complete our business. The food is promptly delivered to the table and the staff is very attentive without interrupting our conversation. Thank you of helping my group to have a nice dining experience and to be able to socialize.
The menu has a wide variety of selections for large appetites and small appetites. Food is very good and warm or cold depending on the entrée.
We go at least two times a week or use the take out pizza special on Monday night.
As regulars, my wife and I, and many of our friends, enjoy having lunch at Elizabeths on Battleground. We have become very comfortable with most of the wait staff and they always greet us with friendly smiles and brief conversation. The food is outstanding, especially pizza, cheese steak, and chicken parm. Whenever we have out-of-state visitors we always make it a point to have lunch there. Actually, it's usually at their request.
Elizabeth's was ok. The ambience was satisfactory but not stellar. The restaraunt was cold and a little too loud. There was not much intimacy. The waiter got our orders correct but was not personable or likeable. The food was on the expensive side and tasted o.k. but not great. My garden salad had boring ingredients (almost like ingredients you would get in a cafeteria) and my wood-fired pizza was doughy and slightly undercooked. Overall, I've had nicer food and a better atmosphere at Wolfgang's Pizza Bar for only a little bit more money.
Great local place with great food and service. The owner, Mario, is quick to make the rounds to the tables to make customers feel even more like family. This is our favorite restaurant that offers a goods time when the kids are with us, as well as a nice little getaway for just us.
The hostesses were great. They took our drink order, brought bread, checked in on us a few times, and tried to make sure we got some service. Unfortunately, our server was less attentive. His most endearing trait: while walking by at full speed, barely turning his head our way, he'd say, "OK, guys, everything OK? Great, great" and keep moving. After doing this twice, we just quit responding to him, to see if he'd stop. Never bothered.
Yep, it was 7PM, and it was busy. But all the tables in his area complained; some were quite vocal in their complaints.
Elizabeth's is good, but avoid this particular location. We'll probably dine again - on Lawndale, not Battleground.
