We had the perfect wedding at Elizabeth's on L on July 30, 2016 with 64 guests. We had two ceremonies (Western and Korean) and the reception here. It was breathtaking and delicious. It was also stress-free and affordable! Breena, our venue coordinator, and Elizabeth, the owner, were two of the most professional, efficient, effective, and lovely people I've ever met! My partner and I were also coordinating a cross-country move that would happen a week after the wedding. The only reason we were able to handle both the wedding and the move was because we knew we could put all our faith in Breena and Elizabeth and not worry about the wedding. We were also on a strict wedding budget. Elizabeth's on L was so willing to work with our budget and exceeded all of our expectations. Our guests were blown away by the elegant venue space and the incredible food. I can't sing enough praises about this business! Highly, highly recommend. Go and visit - you'll find yourself willing to cut down your guest list just so you can make sure you can use this venue!

There are already a lot of 5 star reviews posted here about Elizabeth\'s - which is how I found this venue in the first place! I\'m so glad I did, because it turned out to be the perfect place to host our event. We had 42 guests and both the ceremony and reception at Elizabeth\'s. They worked with us to get the right flow of events, layout of tables and menu to fit all of our guests\' allergies or special requests, which took a lot of tweaking and e-mail communication. Emilie is mentioned in many reivews here - she has recently left Elizabeth\'s, but we did work with her for much of our planning. Breena stepped in to finish planning and to be our point person. The transition was flawless. Breena knew all of our details, handled our music playlists, event order, and she kept checking in with me throughout the night. I think it says a lot about their professionalism that we were able to switch coordinators shortly before the event and I had complete confidence in them, and it went off without a hitch! I can only repeat what others have said - Elizabeth\'s is more reasonably priced than most venues out there, they have delicious food, and their interiors are beautiful! If you are having a smaller wedding and think you can\'t afford to do it right in downtown DC, you need to check out Elizabeth\'s.

We were so thrilled to hold our ceremony and reception at Elizabeth's on L. From our first meeting to the wedding itself, everything was handled with professionalism, grace, and hospitality! We love the mission of the raw restaurant — in fact, one of our first dates was at Elizabeth's Gone Raw — and working with Elizabeth herself, her sommelier Phil, and her wonderful event manager Emilie was a dream. Together, they orchestrated a beautiful day for our small group (around 40 guests total) and helped us make the most of our vision without extravagance or complexity.

More details, for other couples thinking of celebrating at Elizabeth's! For us, the venue made sense since it allowed us to pay only for food, drink, and labor, rather than material or space rental. The decor is already elegant and stunning, which meant we brought almost nothing with us in terms of additional decoration, and the staff even held on to the floral arrangements from Friday dinner for our Saturday wedding! Since there were no events planned for later in the day, we were given the option to extend our midday celebration past the planned ending time — which we gladly seized on the day of. Emilie helped us design the perfect flow of ceremony to hors d'oeuvres to luncheon to toasts, ran all the music from one of our iPods (including processional and recessional music!), and helped us enter and exit the ceremony with ease. She is a real pro, and in addition to nailing all of the logistics she found a way to fill the day with little grace notes, like playing music for a private "first dance" when the groom and I wound up being the last to depart the venue, keeping the bride watered and well-fed (thanks also to Elizabeth on this one!), making sure our paper goods were recycled after the ceremony, and sending a charming thank-you note soon after the day itself.

It was an honor to celebrate with such fine people, and we would do it again in a heartbeat.

We used Elizabeth's on L St as our ceremony and reception site and it was unbelievable. Elizabeth's provided everything - space, food, tables, linens, flatware, glassware, dance floor, bar, stools, etc. The space is gorgeous and didn't need any extra decor, making my job a lot easier. We found Elizabeth's based on their amazing food reviews and they didn't disappoint. They don't do cakes (you can bring on in), but we're not cake people anyways and went with their seasonal desserts - best decision! Also important to us was having an urban and walkable location and Elizabeth's provided just that. In addition, rare in DC, is to find a space that doesn't charge a space rental fee. Our costs included food, beverage, labor, and a couple of floral arrangements to bring it all together. Elizabeth, Emilie, and Phil were amazing to work with in planning our food and drink selections. They even got kudos from our guests the night of! We simply couldn't have had our desired wedding without their help. I'd recommend them to anyone!

Elizabeth on L is a beautifully renovated Federalist townhouse on L street NW in Washington, DC. We had our wedding and reception at this venue, along with a four course sit down dinner. From the very beginning of signing the contract with Elizabeth, we knew the venue, food and service was the right fit for us.

First off, the food and quality of service is Michelin star worthy. Elizabeth has a CIA trained chef who created masterpieces for our dinner. Our guests are still raving about the food. Elizabeth provided a free tasting of her menu items which helped seal the deal that this place was perfect.

Elizabeth's assistance, Emilie Jackson is a rare find. She was on point on our wedding day with contingency plans, helpful advice and such a calm and professional demeanor. Emilie and Elizabeth provided such a fantastic service, listened to every concern and made sure every want came to fruition.

I could gush for hours about this venue, service and food. Within the DC area, you won't find a better place.

Our wedding party for 107 people, at our house, was a huge success, mainly because of the food, service and planning help from The Catering Company of Washington. We are not kids; our friends are fellow world travelers & foodies - our food needed to be top quality and creative. Elizabeth helped create a very special menu that included favorites carried out in uncommon dishes. It worked! Every dish was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. Friends are still talking about her amazing lamb chops, fried green tomato sliders, duck confit on wontons and pâté, among other dishes like ceviche.

The service, starting with manager Emilie, was spot on. Both bartenders knew their stuff and interacted beautifully with all our guests. The service staff really knew how to circulate through the many rooms, 2 levels, and large (outside) deck - they took great care of our guests.

From bidding to planning to set up and breakdown, Elizabeth and her company were great to deal with, and made our very important and special event spectacular.

The staff at Elizabeth's on L provided exceptional service while coordinating and executing our wedding reception. The owner is the most kind and and affable woman. Elizabeth was very helpful during the entire process. She is well versed in etiquette and is a great reference for planning an amazing dining experience. Her rates are very fair and affordable. We would recommend her to anyone and use her services/venue again if necessary.

Elizabeth & Kiley were simply a delight to work with for my unique menu. I wanted to pay homage to my Haitian roots and my husband's southern traditions. I scored PERFECTION with Elizabeth's on L! When I say I went to well over 25 catering companies in the DC metro area and MOST were average tastings that I would not ever chunk down 25% of their asking price. What I got from the catering company was excellent consistent food. Our guests are still talking about it and I only wish I could request an occasional plate when the mood strikes me for a wedding memory. I even required a no greet zone from my wedding coordinator,so we could have OUR dinner in peace for a moment-DELICIOUS. Of all the items I wanted to get done right for our wedding-catering was at the top of my list. Elizabeth's on L-exceeded my expectations!
