Had a lovely late lunch at this place. The soups are excellent and the quesadilla was superb. Good cappuccino as well.

Madison has relatively few restaurants so to say that Elizabeth's is the best is to place it in context. It has charm and a range of prices as well as excellent food. The space is small so the noise level can be disturbing. It's the luck of the draw on that issue. The food never disappoints and the specials really... More

I was feeling under the weather but had a houseguest. We ordered dinners from Elizabeth's to take home. The food was good but so overpriced that I will not go back there ever again. Nothing is that delicious.

We had a fantastic dinner on Valentine's Day, which is harder. The quality of the food was outstanding. My free-range chicken was great. My husband had the salmon, also cooked to perfection. But the desserts alone are worth the visit... fantastic. A very romantic spot, recommended for romantic dinners.

Lovely, cozy atmosphere! I enjoyed lunch here with a couple of friends. The food is quite good. I had a BLT with avocado. The ingredients were fresh and nicely presented. My companion had a quiche and salad she really enjoyed and our other friend had a fantastic clam chowder. My friends dine here a lot, and say the food is... More

While we live 50 miles away, we're often in the area and love to eat at Elizabeth's Café. Before making a reservation last evening, we checked reviews of a number of restaurants. We were concerned about the recent poor reviews of Elizabeth's Café, but chose this proven restaurant. The food was good as always and the service was excellent. Whatever... More

We came to this establishment based on mostly positive reviews. We are not locals -- I think maybe you need to be a local to "get it." We found the service lackadaisical and unorganized, the interior dreary and the food so-so. The menu is old and not in a good way. They do have a to-go counter and it feels... More

Food is decent - we had a well prepared (but slightly fatty) steak. However service is harried -- not a good environment if you want a leisurely meal. We have eaten here several times in three years - you never know service-wise what you will get. Our server had poor communication skills and a scowl. Dark lighting hides run-down interior.
