    Usually on notre same st restaurants are noisy to the point of uninteresting. Evoo is paticularly quiet with tables well spreaded out. Service is professional. Food is unusual and tasty. A few recommendations are to expand the main course selection and define the wine list differently. This is the dinner portion that left me cold

    This was one of the best meals we've had in Montreal, 2 local foodies + 2 from San Francisco on a business trip to Montreal ( all global travelers and accustomed to fine dining). Exquisite presentation, great service and the taste and the quality of the food was outstanding. Locally sourced meats and veg. And the best part, great value for money! We are coming back. Thank you EVOO!

    Having lived in Montreal for 10 years, was nice to return two years later and find innovative cuisine is still around. As many have mentioned in reviews the ambience and name are not great, the focus is on the food as it should be. Fantastic balance of flavours and textures for all three courses. A weakness is that there was only one wine available by the glass, but the server offered to open a bottle if I wanted something different. Highly recommended,

    Although for some reason when I dined there with my friend it was not busy at all (especially for a Saturday), I enjoyed the ambiance, up-tempo jazzy music, and good service. I am a vegetarian and they were able to accommodate me with a dish that was delicious! Save room for dessert - deeeelish!

    We booked last minute on the Saturday night before Xmas. I have read some very good reviews.It was pretty empty and lacking atmosphere so we almost didn't go in - I assume it was due to the time if year and terrible weather outside rather than anything else. We did stay and the food was very good but it is a very complex French menu and may not please all palates. We were happy with our food and the service was excellent. A little overpriced maybe.

    This restaurant surpassed our expectations. I had the best duck I have ever had in my life, and my two dinner companions were thrilled with their choices too (ravioli and rabbit). It is a good sign when folks say that they would definitely come back and order the exact same thing again! Service was a touch slow, but pleasant. The only thing - when it was time to order, we were told that one of the items we had chosen would take 25 minutes to prepare. This information should either be on the menu or told to us BEFORE our menu deliberations to avoid having to choose something else at the last minute. A small point though. Don't miss this restaurant.

    I went to try out avoid for lunch on the reccomendation from a friend. There were 3 choices on the prix fixe the lunch menu. I was not in the mood for fish on a freezing winter's day and the other choice was pork , which I try to avoid.. So , I went with the homemade pasta dish. It was good but not mind blowing. My starter was the cauliflower soup , which was nice. I suspect that the food is more interesting at supper. The service was attentive and the decor modern, making it a nice addition to a neighborhood going through gentrification.

    Dined on 11/16/2013
    I live in Montreal and rate this the worst Saturday night restaurant in Montreal. The food is bland and downright weird. The amuse bouche of frozen tomatoe and cream left a sour aftertaste. The fish dish was bland and all the food on the plate was white. The dessert of ice cream and olives was weird. It was sprinkled with boxed crushed chocolate wafers. No wonder most of the restaurant was empty at 8:00 pm. Do not eat here if you work hard for your $$.

    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... A +

    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.

    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.

    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. Fantastic!

    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.

    We were there to celebrate my birthday. Everything about our dining experience was great, except for the food. We had the menu for the MTL A TABLE festival. The main course was outstanding, but the entrees and desserts failed to impress. Nobody at the table liked the tomato sorbet, although we think that having something to clean the palate is a great idea.

    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!
