My June 3rd, 2009 visit to Elizabeths on 37th was just awful. We called ahead and made reservations. When we arrived we were kept on the front foyer for 45 minutes. Others that came later were seated ahead of us. When asked if they had reservations the hostess said no. She asked if we'd like to sit in an upstairs dining room and we walked outside the building and what appeared to be a fire esacape to what appeared to be an old bedroom with peeling pain on the ceiling. We finally sat down upstairs and ordered our food. We were served a cheese plate that was of fair quality and an appetizer clam soup that had sand in every bite. 45 minutes after arriving our main course still had not arrived. At the hour mark we asked if our food was coming and they said it was almost done. Our son began to have stomach pains so I asked the waiter if he could PLEASE get my food thrown into a plastic box so we could take it with us and he promptly brought me my check, but no food. I paid 200 dollars including tip and continued to wait for my food. My wife and son waited in the car. After ten more minutes I asked the waiter if my food was coming. He said he'd bring it to the home's foyer downstairs for me. I went down to the car for ten minutes to give them time to finish putting it in a box. I went to the foyer but there was no food waiting for me. I asked a waiter politely if he would try to locate my food. He said he would. Ten minutes later I finally left with no food. I paid 200 dollars for a skimpy salad, sandy clams and a stale cheese plate. My wife and I eat out at exceptional dining establishments often. This was simply the worst dining experience that I can recall. Everyone was certainly polite, as was I, however I could not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Really, in my opinion, Elizabeth on 37th rivals both Magnolia Grill in Durham and Slightly North of Broad in Charleston. EXCELLENT all around.
The restaurant is in an old house, probably historic. Very beautiful to walk up to at night with all of the lights blazing.
We had made an RSVP for 7:30 but got there around 6:45. No problem, they were not that busy at that point so we were immediately seated. We didn’t care for the first table they sat us at and asked to be moved to a more intimate (and better lit) cozy corner table. It hadn’t been reserved, so, they were able to move us there.
They started us off with cheese drop biscuits with butter and apricot jam and we ordered our typical martinis (they were fine; you’d be amazed how many bars screw up pouring Bombay Sapphire into a martini glass!)
In addition to the regular menu, there were 3 appetizer/starter specials and two entrée specials. We both ended up ordering these. We were not disappointed.
Hubby had a grilled heart of romaine salad with an olive tapenade topped with some sort of grilled Greek cheese. I had local shrimp seasoned and sautéed then drizzled with pumpkin seed oil and covered with a butternut squash soup flavored with orange zest and allspice. Yum, yum, yum.
Before they brought out the appetizers, they gave us a complimentary taste of a Prince Albert mussel in a smoky tomato aioli sauce. Neither of us much care for mussels, but this was tasty.
We ordered a bottle of French white (rare for us but very good; a white burgundy).
Before the entrées were served, they brought us a small salad of local greens and herbs with apple and goat cheese and a maple vinaigrette.
For our entrées, hubby had local strips of flounder stuffed with chunks of lobster and crab served with string beans and leeks and I had local jumbo sea scallops sautéed in a wine and butter sauce served with a goat-cheese and cauliflower flan and pigeon peas (sort of like black-eyed peas).
When the entrées arrived, my first impression was that the portions were too small, but, the chef was right on in the allocations because they ended up being the perfect size (the food was very very rich).
But, very very excellent!
For dessert, we shared an almond-pecan tart that was not too sweet and went well with the espresso I also ordered!
The service was efficient, professional and knowledgeable. It was not exactly “friendly”, but, definitely courteous and respectful.
We’d most certainly recommend this place as a “special” restaurant (definitely not cheap) and will likely return at some future visit to Savannah.
We were looking for the quintessential Savannah dining experience. Every appetizer, every entree sounded exquisite. My two colleagues and I each had an appetizer, an entre and a homemade dessert - for the caliber of this dining experience, I view this as a bargain. Don't miss it.
The atmosphere and food were really great, but the sevice was sub-par. Our servers were not attentive. They took our order and only came back to the table a couple of other times. We had to get up and pour our own wine that sat on a mantel.
Our experience at Elizabeth on 37th was wonderful. The food was EXCELLENT and the wait staff superb and attentive. You get what you pay for and our meal was a visual as well as a culinary feast. Linger at your table with a brandy after dinner, look at all the wonderful decorations and feel yourself transported back in time when dinner was an event. You won't be disappointed!
We lived in Savannah for 6 years and went to Elizabeth on 37th almost every year for our Anniversary. The service is A+ and the food is awesome!
We are visiting Savannah next week to close on our house and will be having dinner there - we can't wait!
