"Paul and Elizabeth's, one of the early mainstays of vegetarian dining in Northampton and now 30 years old, draws people in for its healthy, thoughtfully conceived dishes even at a time when discretionary income is in short supply. "We notice people spending less but still coming," says chef Nate Sustick, the son of the restaurant's founders. Paul and Elizabeth's is known for its daily seafood specials, varied salads and house-baked breads and desserts, and though the cost of some ingredients is going up, the restaurant is holding the line on prices, still offering lunch from $7 and dinner from $10 to $20."

""If you want a comfortable, home-style place to eat, Paul and Elizabeth's is perfect. Atmosphere earns a gold plate for its earthy style, which includes walls of quilts, tapestries and stained glass."

"For dessert, our Diner enjoys the creamy pumpkin pie topped with whipped cream. It has just the right amount of light cinnamon-nutmeg flavor in it. The crust is nice and flaky. The chocolate mousse cake is also wonderful. The mousse has a nice, creamy texture . It's topped with almonds and a raspberry sauce. Dessert earns a platinum plate."

— Billy Costa - NECN TV Diner

"Not to wax evangelical in a non-sectarian newspaper, but we must make a personal sacrament of the roll. The roll, as interpreted by Paul and Elizabeth, is a magnificent oversize whole wheat creation with high side walls and a positively ecclesiastical domed top, lightly crusty with a feathery interior and a yeasty whole grain taste."

— Boston Globe Review

"At Paul and Elizabeth's, tasty breads and exuberant vegetables are preludes to the final indulgence: luscious desserts."

— C.C. Brulée - Valley Advocate

"A cure for the ensuing overstimulation can be found at Paul and Elizabeth’s restaurant (413-584-4832, in Northampton. Its lofty ceilings, tall windows, and dozens of potted plants give off a refreshing, spring-like simplicity. And the menu, with a focus on seasonal specials, fresh fish, and locally sourced vegetables, was at once creative and comforting — and surprisingly affordable. The sesame-seed-encrusted catfish is perfection — light but incredibly flavorful — and my wife doesn’t leave so much as a trace of her organic pasta dish."
