We’ve dined here several times but this was not a stellar visit. The salmon was a good piece of fish but the carrot sauce was totally without flavor. The risotto with the scampi was a over cooked and mushy. I think it’s best to stick with the sushi here.

Everything was great except the food coming from the sushi chef was incredibly slow. So much so the server offered us a free round of drinks while waiting.

Generally love this restaurant! Have been several times and the food is always good. Their Brussels sprout appetizer and skirt steak are delicious! This time we went, the service wasn’t great. Slow to get our food and when we did, 3 out of the 4 of us had cold food. My steak was also undercooked. The waitress was quick to take everything back to cook it more and/or heat it up. Try going on a Saturday night in the summer to sit outside. Sometimes they have great live entertainment as well.

We were there 40 minutes before we got our salad. We were served after the people next to us who came in after us. Waitress was good but food was VERY slow. Then we waited another 20 min. To get our food. I think we'll just carry out next time.

This was the first time we ever visited E&O, our service was great! We had the Crispy Broccoli Kale salad - amazing! And the Braised Short Rib with Mushroom Risotto has to be on my list of the best things I’ve ever eaten! Will definitely be going back!

I have been to E & O probably around 5 times. It never fails to deliver delicious dishes. The bar was slow when we just went so it took literally almost 30 minutes before our drinks arrived. Luckily our waitress warned us they bar was moving slowly when we ordered so we were prepped for the long wait. Still, it was a little annoying. However, the food is great. The crunchy kale and brussel sprout salad is awesome. Love the crunch, the spice from the jalepenos and the added bonus of some shrimp in this salad. The skirt steak is amazing and so is the fish. Great atmosphere that makes you feel like you are in the city and not in a suburban outdoor mall. Put this on your list and go. We will again and again.

Had a 730pm reservation and when we arrived we were told they were running 15-20 minutes behind schedule. We had waited 30 minutes and I checked with the hostess and she said it still would be 15 minutes more. The manager came up to us and offered us a drink on the house. We only waited about 10 more minutes and were seated. Waiter Kane was great. Enjoyed the kale and brussel sprout salad and smoked scallops. Nice to see that the manager is aware of what is going on in the restaurant. Have been here several times before and food is always good.

We started our meal with a multitude of small plates and cocktails, which were all delicious! The sushi was exceptional! When the entrees arrived, the chefs special, a 16 oz bone in skirt steak, was tough and difficult to chew. The waiter was quick to respond, took away the steak and told us it would be taken off of the check. We completed our meal and the bill came with the steak on it. The manager then proceeded to tell us, rather rudely, that because the steak had been partially eaten she would not remove it from our check, as the waiter had promised. She took 25% off of the steak instead. I have never seen this level of unprofessionalism from management of a restaurant before.

My husband and I shared several appetizers (snacks), small plates, one entree, and two desserts. Everything was delicious! All components of each dish were made in house. My favorite snack was the corn addiction. The carrot cake was light, yet moist and buttery. The fried chicken is also excellent.

Excellent meal, crispy kale and shrimp salad always solid. Nancy was a very good host as she made sure all our food was delivered promptly and drinks were always refilled; very attentive and made the dining experience that much better. Had deviled eggs and fried potato app. Had crispy pata and pork belly adobo - all were very good. Ended with the mango pudding. It was light and palet cleansing. I did have a gin based cocktail that was very good too! We look forward to going back!

Been here many times and must say every time good food and service. This time the service was really bad. Waitress tried to rush us at every option. Ordered appetizer and it took ages to come out when it did it was ok but not as tasty as usual. Then our waitress brings the entrees out as we were not even two, three bites into the appetizer. She asks if its ok and we said no it was not. She took back to somewhere until we were almost done then brings back. The food was lukewarm and overcooked, I had ordered the gaucho ribeye. At this point I did not feel like I wanted to complain even though we were extremely upset with the whole experience.

Stopped in for dinner after a coworker recommendation. Food was tremendous. Service even better. Highly recommend their small plates. Bone marrow tacos and brussel sprouts amazed. Hangar steak with kimchi fried rice really good. Most tender bites of that cut I’ve ever had.

The manager there (skinny guy with thick beard) was so rude. He gave my wife attitude on her birthday because she said her steak was burnt (she ordered it well done not burnt to a cris). He asked us to leave after I stood up for her. Never going back. Waitress was super kind but the manager is a piece of work who needs to find a different job.

Also, the fried chicken is horrendously bad.

One of us ordered burger and received it 10 minutes before the rest of the party.
My other friends and I ordered Crispy brussels sprouts and kale which is a hot plate but was a room temperature. Complain to a server and got assured that it should be room temperature not hot...little confused because it is listed under Small Plates Hot on your menu.
The decor of this restaurant is modern, new and very nice. The service was OK.
I will come back to try something else. It is a little nice neighborhood restaurant.

Very good service from beginning to end. Waiter did nice job of describing the menu items, being attentive to needs and advising when food was about ready.

Diverse selection of unusual small plates - encouraged by waiter to share. Brussels sprouts salad very good and plentiful.

The salmon was a bit over cooked. Prawns well prepared, tasty. Apple bread pudding dessert tasty but too heavy on the bread - more apple needed.

E&O does not disappoint. Some tips for the beginners:
1. Use open table or call the restaurant directly to book a reservation
2. Use valet - they are kind, professional and quick
3. If you have only two in your party you may be able to be seated at the bar directly (ask)
4. Book the back room for private parties or for more public gatherings consider a hightop by the bar - it's a great scene and at times there is live music.
5. Ask the waitstaff for recommendations and consider ordering several the following are stellar: Corn bites (order two), brussel sprouts and kale salad, It's Like That (sushi), Yes Please (sushi), Oysters on the half shell (if you like oysters these are fresh and well prepared)
6. Save room for dessert (molten red velvet and the carrot pineapple cake are our favorites
7. In the summer they have outdoor fire pits and the bar extends - make use of this. It's great for a night out.
8. One of the owners or higher managerial staff are always present - get to know your hosts... this caliber of restaurant doesn' t just happen and when happened upon needs our support.
9. Go to the bathroom (sounds weird but go - it's beautiful and I think I might install that flooring in our home)
10. Enjoy and return.

My party has been there a few times & this time. The food was tasteless. Salmon - 2 mahi Mahi , risotto & shrimp had no taste- shrimp was not fully cook & mahi mahi was not seared properly.
Did the owner change ?

It was disappointing & this birthday was planned out 2 months ago.
