Table for 3 booked for 7pm last night. We arrived a few minutes early but were immediately seated. Wait staff were excellent, attentive and friendly. Cocktails and wine were all good. The 3 of us shared 2 appetizers (mussels and beet salad, and we all ordered lamb which was one of the specials, absolutely delicious. Only reason I'm giving 4 rather than 5 stars is that we had a very loud table next to us which was very distracting.

My favorite restaurant in the area. Small but very charming from the moment you walk through the door. Nice menu selection, reasonably priced. Always something new. Good wine list and specialty drink list. Tasty desserts.

The food and service were excellent! The atmosphere is very cozy with small tables very close together and original artwork on the walls. Although not conducive to private conversation, it was pleasant.

Elizabeth's cafe, or perfect parties as it is more commonly known in town, is an institution in Madison. Succeeding in the restaurant biz for more than 10 years is a big deal. Perfect Parties has been around for more than 25 years and continues to deliver a solid fine dining experience in a modest, historic building right on the Post road. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but the quality of apps, entrees and deserts is very high. If you value quantity over quality, Elizabeth's may not be your cup of tea. Service is excellent and it should come as no surprise that the chef and many on the team have been with the owner for more than 10 years. Highly recommended.

This is one of the best restaurants in the Madison area serving the best in food. We have been there a few times and we have taken food To-Go. Slow and inattentive service is the only problem especially on a Saturday night. We would continue to go to Elizabeth's during the week because of the fabulous food and desserts. I would like to try brunch sometime.
