One of the best meals I have had in years. The butter bean soup with shrimp was absolute perfection. The baked red snapper was delicious. The wait staff made you feel welcome, attended you every need professionally, but never over doing it.

Elizabeth’s continues to be my favorite special occasion spot in Savannah. Fantastic service (always), and I’ve never had a bad meal (beef tenderloin is A++++, will never get anything else). AND their Savannah Cream Cake is one of my top three desserts in town.

This place is amazing! My husband and I care here to celebrate our last remaining weeks just the two of us before we become parents and we were blown away by the experience! The house is gorgeous, staff is on point and works like clockwork, and the food was to die for. I had the steak which I highly recommend, and we shared the scallops as an appetizer - they were mouth-wateringly good. Definitely not a place we could come to often (and probably won’t for another 18 years), but an absolute must if you’re visiting Savannah and want a fancy night out.

This is a beautiful, truly Southern restaurant! The service was wonderful, the presentation perfect and the cuisine very good. It was, however, over-priced for what it was and we think it was a bit hyped! We travel a lot and eat out often. We would not put it in the 5 star category. There are other restaurants in Savannah that compete in every area and are a better price point.

We have dined here a number of times and always enjoyed ourselves. This time, however, we noticed a rather "musty" smell and the furniture all look worn and frayed. Service was terrific and the food was quite good. We dined with friends for whom it was their first time at Elizabeth's and they were unimpressed.

One entrée was fabulous. The other entrée was a fish dish that was slightly over cooked. The other food items were wonderful. WE received a complimentary oyster (one each) and a complimentary salad. The bartender did not know how to make manhattans. We had to send it back and tell him what ingredient was missing which also affected the color. A well-established restaurant should know how to make a common cocktail. We did mention it was our anniversary on the open table reservation but apparently it did not get to the restaurant. Overall it was a very nice evening and worthy of a recommendation.

Elizabeth on the 37th was perfect for our anniversary! We made reservations ahead of time and when we got their the staff was amazing from beginning to end. I’m the middle of our dinner the electricity went out due to an accident down the road. The staff immediately brought out candles and we finished our dinner by candlelight. Everyone was so apologetic for the “inconvenience” but honestly my husband and I loved the candlelight dinner even more! It definitely gave off the romantic yet spooky vibe din d it was October 29 that we were looking for.

Also, the food was great! We will definitely come back when we get the chance to visit Savannah again!

Being a Savannah Native , I might be biased but this is One of, if not, the best Dining and food experiences in Savannah! The Grouper Celeste melted in your mouth. The appetizers we had were on the special and were amazing. The red rice and shrimp ( seafood jambalaya) rivals any we have ever had . We will be back for many special occasions to come! There is a reason they have won so many rewards of the years and continue to be a staple of fine southern cuisine!

A real disappointment. I don’t know if the restaurant was overwhelmed or what but our service was not good. One of our party was lactose intolerant (which we told the server up front); she was brought a salad with cheese (twice! They replaced it with another one that had cheese on it!) and ice cream. The wine suggestion was poor. My meal (grouper with peanut sauce) tasted like its ingredients were picked at random. And it was very expensive. I think it’s floating on its reputation. There are far better restaurants in Savannah.

When looking for great service and excellent tasting, quality food, this restaurant is superb. The beef tenderloin was done medium rare to perfection and the roasted chicken was superior.

Parking wasn't an issue as we went one block south. The inconsiderate party of four who thought everyone in the restaurant needed to hear their entire conversation was the only issue.

Its probably a bit biased if I write a review once or twice a month for Elizabeth's but as a foodie I permit myself the best biases and I will say it again, this is the restaurant that others want to be when they grow up as far as the overall experience. Kim (guy) was our waiter per usual. Ask for he or Aly if you can. The St James' oysters were to die over and the tenderloin this night was so mouth decadent that I'm not sure if I've ever tasted one finer and I've eaten many. Kim also presented us with the encrusted flounder to split and hoped that we might love it more, and as amazing as it was, the tenderloin still won the evening. The pumpkin cheesecake made for a great seasonal option and if you're wise? Ask for Kim to do you a chef's table and make it easy on yourselves in that sense! Tell him or Aly that Shannon sent you!
