Food was prepared in an original
Food was prepared in an original way, very tasty and very neat; many mixed tastes made it special. Service was very friendly and with just good timing. Unfortunately, that evening not many tables were occupied so it made the atmosphere not so good. Not many choices on the menu but enough to make us happy. Wines were affordable.

A very pleasant surprise
A great addition to the Notre Dame West restaurant scene. Although small, the menu was refreshing and challenging enough to make a decision difficult. Each course was a delight to the pallet and also to the eye. The staff were very attentive and very friendly throughout the entire evening. One did not feel over attended nor neglected. The chef also made the rounds of the room to ensure that everyone understood the food and that they were enjoying their experience. As a relatively new restaurant, it will be interesting to see how successfully it develops in the area of ambience. Although very clean and very modern in design, the restaurant needs to achieve a slightly warmer ambience. A delightful evening nevertheless.

What a find!
This was our second visit, though the first for brunch. The owners and staff were welcoming and highly professional. The food was creative and delicious. Would highly recommend going.

It was our first time at "EVOO". We loved the food. (I had a smoked fish plate and scones- delish!) Service was great- very friendly, very attentive. Would definitely go again.

Adventurous! But food comes first
Simple room, small menu, well thought-out combinations of flavours and textures, beautifully presented.
Many ingredients found in typical bistros, but the prep is very different at EVOO. Rabbit, frogs legs, onglet, ravioli open your eyes to lighter meals with wonderful and tasty preparations. Short wine list is nicely Canadian-heavy , reasonably priced, and waitress was knowledgeable. Great addition to the St Henri gentrification. Lunch some days and weekend brunch also, again not the typical menu for such outings.

I took my girlfriend to this
I took my girlfriend to this restaurant for her birthday after a dance lesson at the Arthur Murray Dance School across the street. We were very impressed with the quality of food, and the service was great. The portions were adequate - I would not recommend this restaurant to someone who is looking to stuff their face.

Delicious food and nice staff
Had a brunch here and loved it! Food was fresh and homemade with great basic tastes! We loved the interior design. Nice colours! We were there early on Saturday and it was not too too crowded which we love. Not sure if it gets noisy later in the day.
By the way, coffee with a side of jam and Nutella (homemade) was perfect! Try it!
You don't expect there is a restaurant to the East of Atwater that worth visiting but this one for sure is a neighbourhood gem!

Evoo is a restaurant that probably would benefit from a better location. This isn't the Old Port.This section of the city is still a bit down and out, although with all the development in the area that is slowly changing. Evoo is not an inexpensive experience but the inventive food in general lives up to the prices. The limited menu works in their favour. Friendly service, nice atmosphere. Worth a try.

Excellent dining experience!
Great work in the selection of ingredients and composition of dishes. Decor could be enhanced a little to provide for a better ambiance.

Great new find!
Inspired cuisine, this new restaurant (open only 7 months ago) is very imaginative and uses local products, respecting the great flavours. The owners are very friendly and I am convinced this restaurant will continue to attract more people as it become better known!

Great spot with simply delicious and unusual food. Would definitely return to try some of the other dishes.

Brunch @ EVOO
What a great experience for brunch! The menu was diverse, inspired, and refined. From a smoked fish along with a fresh and crispy apple and cabbage salad to a Mexican-inspired braised veal with lime crème fraiche (yum!), everyone had a great meal. The only down side to the experience was that we waited a tid-bit long time to receive our food. However, we were a group of ten. In the end, the food was definitely worth the wait!

When a real chef is at work
Everybody can cook. Everybody can open a restaurant. But there is people with special skills, able to transform everything in a piece of art. Evoo is this type of restaurant. The Irish chef is really good. Each plate we had were perfectly balanced, very creative. With a special mention for the desert "Banofee".... I was obliged to order a second portion ! So goooooood ! Sorry about that !!!

I'll certainly come back! However, it's a little bit expensive!

Very enjoyable evening.
Innovative menu, fresh ingredients - well presented with no rush - made this a relaxed and very enjoyable evening. Hope this young restaurant succeeds - so we can return next time we're in Montreal.

I received some out-of-towners, whom I wished to impress and treat to a special brunch. To do so I asked a "foodie" colleague to recommend a restaurant. He highly recommended EVOO. We were all wowed! The food and beverages were amazing! The service was super cordial! When I think of EVOO, I think classic, modern, quality, and I-WANT-TO-GO-BACK!!!

we went to evoo during the taste mtl event. my family and I had a great experience. I would totally come back for their OMG-oh-sooo-fantastic ricotta starter.

The food was good. I enjoyed
The food was good. I enjoyed the little attentions: palet cleanser and amuse bouche. The waiters and staff were attentionate and described every plate. Very good.

From house made rolls to complex unique desserts, everything was original, very fresh and delicious.
Presentation was modern and pretty, good portion size, nice ambiance in dimly lit clean contemporary space, plus -- attentive service (with explanation of each dish).
Would like to try everything else on their menu -- noticed what people were having at nearby tables and it all looked very appealing.

food was good, service was great but the restaurant look little different than photos and pretty small
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The talented young chefs at EVOO really make the extra effort with their food.
Though the menu is short, each dish was elegant and perfectly prepared.
The portion size was smaller but with all the little extras we were served, neither of us left hungry.
While this is not cheap dining; you will not leave EVOO feeling you over paid for your meal.
They also have a number of cocktails that are beautifully delivered with a twist.
Small seating capacity makes EVOO perfect for special occasions with a few friends or family.

A couple of friends and I were looking for a new breakfast place to celebrate a birthday. I happened to find the great reviews in OpenTable, so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed ! We each had a different dish and we all loved it. Even the freshly squeezed grapefruit - strawberry juice was fab. The coffee is amazing... Probably the best resto coffee I've ever had.
I would not hesitate to recommend this to all, and can't wait to go back.
They have a great team working there.

Saturday Night Special
Food Quality was outstanding, as was the presentation. I particularly appreciated the portion size, manageable and not intimidating. The wine list was small and could be improved, in particular the selection of white wines. Our servers were cheerful and professional. We will be recommending this spot to our friends. The area is a little grungy so it is surprising to find an upscale restaurant it this spot, but it is reflected in the cost, very good value.

Best restaurant experience in years
From beginning to end, every aspect of the Evoo experience was top notch. From the cocktails to the food, ambiance, modern look and of course the fabulous service- this place does not dissapoint even pickiest of restaurant lovers.
I had a great night with my girlfriend and parents, but I would recommend Evoo for almost any occassion. Its spacious enough to feel comfortable and have privacy at your table, but the music, layout and lighting definitely gives you the feeling of being "out."
Delicious food with beautiful presentations, smart portions and timing between courses, creative seasonal cocktails...

Although the night we were
Although the night we were there, there weren't that many people, this is a great restaurant. The food is original and excellent. The has a very unique way to prepare food that I found very delicious and simple.

Excellent experience! Very creative kitchen. Wait staff had full knowledge of the food and wine list.
