I chose Eveleigh because of the pictures on the website. I primarily needed a quaint, casual and romantic place and I didn't want to go to the "we go here all the time" spot. As soon as you walk in the mood was inviting, decor was interesting and staff were friendly. Definitely give this place a hi-five for the food. It may not be a big menu but its delicious, drinks were awesome (& consistent). We shared 7 dishes and 2 desserts between 4 people. I was introducing a couple of friends on a blind date, and let's just say, things worked out just fine. Well done Eveleigh, well done!

A place to hang
My husband and teen girls were only in LA for 2 days and wanted to go somewhere newer with good food. We heard from a friend about Eveleigh, and we were so happy that we went there. The food was amazing and the menu of farm to table variety was great.
The atmosphere and vibe was very energetic and the waitstaff extremely attentive. We were so impressed, we all decided that Chicago needed this type of restaurant too.

Food, drinks and atmosphere were perfect. A little pricey for the amount you get, but overall outstanding.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I really cannot think of one thing wrong with this place. I loved everything about it. The food, the service, the atmosphere, the decor, the way they treated our two young children (it was an early Saturday night out for the family) were are top notch. This place has such a great feel to it. I highly recommend it and will go back without a doubt.

Really enjoyed our dinner
Really enjoyed our dinner at Eveleigh. I loved the garden ambiance and the food was divine. The kitchen got backed up and we waited almost an hour in between courses, but fortunately we weren't in a hurry. I would definitely go back!

Great for Drinks
The drinks here are pricey, but delicious. If you like tequila, I recommend the Poor Carlito, one of the best margaritas I've ever had.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
the food is overly priced
the food is overly priced and very small portions.
the atmosphere is great and the bar is lively and the patio is nice overall I would go back for drinks but not to dine.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing place to dine and bring guests for business or pleasure.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place always has delicious food! The downside is that they change their menu often so when I return back and crave something I had ordered previously - they no longer have it. (For example, the chicken schnitzel). However, anything I order is still yummyyyy!! Another thing that has surprised me is the quality of customer service. I remember coming here when they had just opened and everyone came off snobby. Now the whole staff walks around with smiles on their faces and coming back frequently to check up on us. Oh yeh and the drinks- hands down. Can't complain! Each one I've tried is delicious!! They also have the best rose champagne on town!!

Trendy but friendly
reading some of the Yelp comments I thought going in that there might be a high snob quotient at this place and the scene would overshadow the food. I was pleasantly surprised that the food, service, and scene were equally excellent. We had a great, very accommodating waiter, cant remember his name that made solid recommendations. The drinks were very good too and I liked the option for the wine carafes. Some really good dishes included the squid, the salmon tartar, skirt steak, and heirloom tomatoes. The food was clearly using good ingredients as they advertise. Only minor quibble; trying to get a drink at the back bar was challenging; only one bar tender,( nice guy by the way) with many people ordering complicated drinks.

Great place for wine and small
Great place for wine and small plates after a movie. Casual/hip ambience, terrific knowledgeable staff, and good food. Lamb meatballs were a highlight. Short ribs were a bit tough and overdone, but that was the only miss for our meal. Will definitely be coming back.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The only thing that I found
The only thing that I found bothersome was in presenting the evening Land specials by price per ounce - leading one to assume portion control was possible. Sadly as the staff know all too well, meats were pre-sliced and as a result any attempt at a tasting of items, or price moderation went out the window.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The decor is rustic elegance with weather-worn wood and pillows. The food was good and the service excellent. Our server John, in particular, was very war, friendly, funny and efficient. The open feeling of the interior was very nice. the back walls are actually windowless and just open to the breeze, which was delightful.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always an experience
Farm to table freshness. Lamb meatballs are amazing. Service is hip but not pretentious.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food, desserts amazing
Desserts are superb! The service is very welcoming

Delightful. A hidden gem that only locals know about! A must for the farm to table connoisseur.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the place to go if you want interesting, delicious food, great service, relaxing surroundings and a fun evening. Every time we have been here our waiter has been terrific...really interested in your experience, asking the right questions, making thoughtful suggestions on food and wine. Way better than other name brand places.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I made reservations through open table and called to see if we could reserve a table in the open patio in the back. I was informed that while they do not reserve outdoor seating she would make a note of it for us. Sure enough when we arrived (they have Valet that I highly recommend!) we had a table for two waiting even though the area was not empty. The decor was nice, above average I guess, but the sunset was amazing. Get there early and you can have beautiful lighting throughout your dinner. The attentive waitress recommended 2-3 plates per person for a full meal. We happily obliged and began ordering accordingly. Food was great, the highlight being the bone marrow. The peppers and Choc-chip cookies are also a must. Wine is $$$.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, awesome service
Great food, awesome service and the location is amazing on sunset weho. I'll be back,
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our meals, interesting cocktail and pretty nice beer selection. This is a charming and romantic place but bug groups would have a great time here too!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The meal was very good. I
The meal was very good. I found the menu to be inventive and beautifully prepared. The table we had on the back patio was fabulous. The only slightly dim situation was with our waiter who barely had a friendly moment with us and seemed to be doing his best to do his job and get through the night.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Out of our comfort zone
We stick to Silver Lake, Echo Park and downtown because we are lazy. However, the cocktail program at the Eveleigh finally lured us west. The cocktails did not disappoint; I would make the drive again for another round.
The food didn't knock me out. It was tasty but I've become tired of the current emphasis on using the whole animal. And I prefer a menu with more vegetables.
The outdoor patio is where you need to be seated both for atmosphere and noise level. I'd also recommend going on a Sunday or weekday night instead of getting caught in the scene on a Friday or Saturday night.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Eveleigh has really knowledgeable waiters, which really adds to the experience of dining there. The wine list is carefully constructed and matches the very good food. The rear deck feels very rustic and stylish at the same time. This was my 10th visit there and it will not be my last.
9/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent service and great food
Recommended by a local LA and didn't disappoint. Menu was diverse and interesting, service fantastic. Highly recommend.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Second time around is still a charm
Our server was attentive, knowledgeable about the food, and just really personable. He suggested our food arrive in two groupings based on the different plates we ordered and it turned out really well. The outdoor dining space would be ideal for a private event as it is on a terrace overlooking the city. The place has an upscale, rustic charm that is inviting. On this visit, we had the stone fruit with burrata, prawn, and squid in the first serving. For the second serving, we had the corn and pappardelle with boar ragu. My friend and I also enjoyed a couple of cocktails and ended our dining experience with the rhubarb cream puff. A must-visit if you are in West Hollywood. Hmm, yeah; even if you're not in West Hollywood.

Dinner at Eveleigh
They've expanded the front patio area so its not as intimate as it once was and there were too many people mulling about. But the food is still amazing.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food fresh. Service
Great food fresh. Service was excellent nothing a problem

What a gorgeous surrounding with amazing waitstaff and the food was to die for. You couldn't have asked for a better way to spend Sunday brunch relaxing in the sun and taking in the cool vibe that the eveleigh has. A must!!!!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The everleigh on w
Great night, service and food. The place had a great vibe with quick service and friendly staff who went out of their way to make our night one to remember. The restaurant was in a great area and easy to get to from downtown Los Angeles.
Will go back if in town
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was beautiful at Eveleigh, the food, the view, the decor, the people. Will definitely be back for a special occasion.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
come later in the day
I came in for an early brunch at 10am and was sad to see the entire restaurant was empty! The valet wasn't even set up yet. Two other tables arrived during our meal, but I would've taken my Dad (visiting from out of town) somewhere that was already busy (like urth) if I had known it'd be so dead. But it's certainly gorgeous and the service was great.
Also, the burger wasn't bad, but it did fall apart as quickly as my 2nd and 3rd bites, so I'd recommend ordering something else
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
good but pricey
Eveleigh has a great vibe, casual elegance, delicious food but it ends up being a bit pricey, the cost sneaks up on you because the plates are inexpensive, but you get a tiny amount - very small plates which is the trend, but then you need to order a lot of them.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outdoor dining at its best
Although the menu was small... It was delicious and the gorgeous ambience made it perfect.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and great ambiance
Short and sweet menu, to the point. Everything is fantastic. Highly recommend the Bubble and Squeak, the burger, and the avacado toast.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
AIA design award + excellent food
The Eveleigh feels like a bit of Brooklyn transplanted onto Sunset Boulevard. I wanted to check it out because it was nominated for an AIA design award, and it really is beautiful. The food was so fresh and the flavors so vibrant, I was amazed. I had the apple, fig and burrata salad with salted almonds and the best olive oil I've tasted since I visited a friend's olive grove in Tuscany. I highly recommend it.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a pleasant dinner for two and the staff was friendly and cordial. Friends were meeting us later there for drinks and unexpectedly we ran across a few other friends who were able to dine with us at our table which was great since the books were very full that evening. We were able to get a larger table when the rest of our friends arrived for drinks so all-in-all it was a very enjoyable Friday evening.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the Eveleigh!
This place is just so beautiful, kind of like a rustic french countryside home. Great food, beautiful atmosphere.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved this restaurant! Usually places that look this cool don't have food and service to match!!!! Food was amazing and service was great!!!!
Run don't walk !!!!

Never Lets me Down
Eveleigh is always delicious. The service is great. This place never fails.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Restaurant feels tucked away on Sunset. Cool atmosphere. They serve mainly small plates. We chose 5. Burratta and Mission Figs were probably the highlight. Heirloom tomatoes were nice but nothing out of the ordinary. Parpadelle was decent. It had a spicy sausage that was well made but otherwise not super flavorful. The monterey squid was good and surprisingly large in portion. I liked the place but I'm not sure I'll be back with so many great places in LA.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent service and food
Waiter was so informative and made the evening more fun.
Attention and warm friendly manager was very impressive to us first timers.
Suggested all my friend go there!
It was our daughters birthday and they made it special!

Magnificence on Sunset
Coming in, I knew the place was going to be beautiful because of the pictures I had seen prior to making my reservation, but I was surprised and amazed on a while other level when I walked in. This woodsy Hollywood gem is now my on my list to take everyone to. Aside from the ambiance, the food was flawless too. My boyfriend had the squid, while I had the salmon - both being delicious and outstanding. Totally giving both plates 5 starts. The Eveleigh is romantic, girls night friendly, as well as a mom and dad breakfast date. Can't wait to come back! Loved to more than words!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We always complain about how much we spend, but we continue to go back so shame on us. Food is good, but you're paying for the view and the ambiance. Service is hit or miss and rarely hospitable. Your OT res means nothing if you don't return their call to confirm. On this occasion we were told an egg couldn't be cooked longer because they didn't accommodate modifications- I didn't realize cooking something to a requested temp was a "modification". Surely at $100 for brunch for three, the professionals preparing the food can keep track of "Oh this egg needs to be medium instead of easy". It's just an arrogant approach to customer service; when the person who makes this rule is buying my meal, they can tell me how I should have it cooked.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, location, wine list. All you need to bring is good company to share an amazing dining experience

Brunch with my wife
Everything was amazing. My second time, my wife's first. From beginning to end my wife was enchanted - we live in Pasadena and do not mind the drive. The only problem encountered was that we had to eventually leave and go home. It is our new mos favorite place to escape to. Thank you for a place that feels like home.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Brunch Fun with a Friend
Really enjoyed the ambience, food, and service! Excellent menu. The brunch cuisine is excellent and the mixologist is amazing as reflected in the very creative cocktails, that can also be enjoyed in carafes! Great experience!
Only suggestions, the staff was a bit rigid, & cautious in their interactions with patrons. A restaurant like Eveleigh will shine most when the staff's attitude matches the wonderful ambience. Understand the need to restrict a high volume of substitutions, however, less rigidity would more match the incredible cuisine and ambience.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is the second time in have dined at Eveleigh. Perfect for a small to medium size group. Great food and portions.
We started with the cheese board, pickle plate, and meat board which was soo delicious. Moved to a salad and shared two main courses- squid and steak. Everything was delicious except for the steak that was overcooked and lacked flavor. Bummer,
Drinks were amazing as always. And hostess/ servers super nice.

Great food - probably one of the best meals I've ever eaten in LA. The service and ambience were great - an overall top notch experience!

Eveleigh remains one of my favorite restaurants. i have been many times - the bartender on this night was not as friendly as the person there on Friday night, but the cocktail was delicious.

Brunch at Eveleigh
Everything was delicious. Much better experience than when we went in just for drinks. The only odd thing was the sound system control is behind one of the booths and we kept getting interrupted. My guess after the 4th time were a little annoyed. Hostess did apologized and offered some free drinks which was nice. But I think the location of those controls should be re-visited!
