A word from Eva Restaurant
welcome to eva...an intimate and charming neighborhood restaurant ran by husband and wife team alejandra and mark gold. the antithesis of a trendy l.a. restaurant, the menu here is focused and changes frequently based on the seasons and whatever mark gather's from the farmer's market every week. the chef's approach to cooking is to use high quality product based on the height of it's season, and of sustainable nature...pair this with an eclectic wine list and unique house-made libations and you will have an unforgettable EXPERIENCE.

Eva Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners
  • An unsung sensation
    2travelersVIP
    Dined on 3/10/2013
    This simple, unassuming spot in the middle of an unremarkable commercial block on Beverly blvd is something that is very hard to find in a crowded LA restaurant field- a very special experience. The chef (who isn't afraid to emerge from the kitchen and interact with guests) mixes whimsy and imagination with flair and finesse. All in all, a tremendous little place.

    This chef really knows what he is doing! The food is exceptional and beautifully presented in this small and charming environment. It reminds us of dishes we have had in Paris where the food and the presentation only enhance the experience. If you have not dined here you are missing out! And, when you do, you will not be disappointed!

    I've been here twice now, both times for brunch. The food is always lovely, and they are generous with the bottomless mimosa. They never seemed to be packed, even though BLD next door is overflowing. It's definitely pricey. But everyone's nice.

  • Food is Tasty-Service So-So
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/23/2013
    There were 7 of us. All but one enjoyed their entree. Most of us ordered halibut and it got rave reviews It was a small portion, most of us would have liked a little more. One of us ordered the wagu steak and he said it was the best steak he ever ate. We shared an order of 18 oysters and they were fresh and plump. One ordered the duck and didn't enjoy it. The chicken egg appetizer was enjoyed greatly by he who ordered it. We ordered a couple of beet salads. There were 4 smsll, whole, lovely, tasty beets. beautifully arranged on a small plate, we would have enjoyed a few more beets on each plate. We were celebrating a birthday of which the management was informed, but they offered no little dessert to the honoree.

    We celebrated my father's 80th birthday dinner. Our table was quiet, service was perfect. We ordered the lobster, wagu beef, and shared appetizers. Everything was served perfect. The waiter brought us a glass of champagne with our dessert for a birthday toast. Great evening.

    Dined on 2/3/2013
    WE went to Eva on Sunday night, where they have a set menu. While the food was very good, and the service was excellent, I wouldn't have chosen the menu items to order for myself, so you have to be prepared to take what you get. The unlimited wine pouring was a very nice touch.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 2/3/2013
    We came here with a Gilt coupon for a mimosa brunch. My friend was on crutches, but the host did not offer an alternative entrance as he watched her come up the steps. He also did not pull out a chair or try to assist when he showed us a table. We asked a manager about other entrances, and he was a bit dismissive as he gestured toward the back of the restaurant. When we left, no one offered to show us an alternate exit. The server was very friendly and nice. I was confused about the final check. The total before the discount was $108 for 2 starters (salad and fruit), 2 entrees (chicken & steak) and mimosas. Unless the mimosas were $60, I'm not sure how that come out to $108, but we tipped 20% on that amount anyway.

    Got a Certificate to dine here. Came first thing on Sunday morning with my 5 month old baby. They were accommodating to fit our stroller. The food was spectacular, fresh and favorable. Had the French toast and hubby had steak. Yummy, would come back. Mimosa got me a little tipsy, tricky cuz I couldn't taste the alcohol.

    Lovely interior with a great neighborhood vibe. Our waiter was extremely nice, unfortunately, the service was very slow (not necessarily her fault) and the food was mediocre at best. There seemed to be a little bit of confusion on the order of things. Our first course came before our drinks were delivered, and the server seemed to have forgotten that we'd ordered drinks in the first place. Just seemed to be a general lack of organization to the meal and service. I'm not a culinary expert, but I do eat out a lot and lived in NY City for 15 years where I ate at nice restaurants often. It billed itself as a somewhat fine dining experience with a top chef. I'd say this place is too big for its britches.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP

    Eva is one of the best fine dining restaurants in Los Angeles. It deserves to be better recognized for the excellence of its food and ambiance. The kitchen is innovative and soulful all at once. We've had a number of dinners there and all have been thoroughly satisfying and memorable. It's also a very relaxed atmosphere, despie the sophistication of the cooking; which makes it even more appealing than other places that feel pretentious and stiff. Absolutely a top choice for a special occasion, or just a sure bet for a great dinner any time.

  • Poor Service Impacted Food Quality
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 12/31/2012
    Unfortunately, the poor service at Eva impacted the food quality and taste. Based on its reputation, the food might have been good but because of various missteps by the wait staff (and how the kitchen handled orders for its various tables) all of our main dishes were served cold. We don't think that was the intended temperature for both the fish and the steak. We came on a night with a fixed menu so there shouldn't be any logistical issues at all. The restaurant was not at capacity, with no more than 5 tables occupied that night. We had service issues as soon as we hit the second dish of the fixed menu. It arrived 30 minutes after every other table - and we were the first to arrive. It just went downhill from there

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP

    We went for Sunday dinner. We were not familiar with the concept and our waiter did not explain it to us. When we received the menus, we understood that it was a fixed menu but still did not understand that wine was included. We waited a very long time between courses and even though it was a fixed menu, they forgot to serve us one of the entrees. When we pointed out the mistake, the waiter quickly brought us the salmon but it was vastly undercooked. All the courses were served family style in very small portions. We only received one piece of fish for five people. After dinner, we ended up eating from a bar menu at another location.

    Just awful. Took over an hour to get our entrees. And they were terrible. The salmon tasted like baby food -- bland and mushy. I could only eat one bite. The striped bass was overcooked. Tasted like card board. I can't imagine a kitchen that could feel good about putting this kind of food out. And the fact that it took so long to get to the table is simply shameful. Will never go back. There are much better restaurants in LA -- skip this one!

    This place NEVER disappoints. Creative yet unpretentious food, like nothing else happening in this city. The chef somehow manages to make gourmet spins on comfort food without it feeling like a gimmick. This has become my go-to place for entertaining. And if people from out of town happen to be visiting on a Sunday night? There's no better place to go. I almost hesitate writing a glowing review because it kind of feels like a secret right now. But I want this place to thrive, so trust me: go here.

    We have dinner here frequently. The Sunday dinner is a deal. It is a four course dinner with wine for $39. The food is very good to excellent, and the wines are quite pleasant. It is amazaing to have decent wine included in this price. The service is generally good. It is a small restaurant and often very busy, so the noise level is pretty high. Be careful of the parking as the neighborhood just south of the restaurant is posted for only resident parking after 6:00 PM. Park north of Beverly Blvd. or use the valet.
