Brought foodie-friends visiting from Seattle. They were blown away. We were like “yeah, that’s right, this is Salt Lake”. We couldn’t have been more proud.

First time visit to Eva and sat in the back enclosed patio. Great ambiance with the fire going, and quiet area. Friendly service and delicious small plates. Had the brussels sprouts, beets and split the pear & walnut pizza...all very tasty!

Went here for our anniversary. We were seated so close to two other couples that we felt bad when we spoke because it seemed like we interrupted their conversations. We had to totally lift up and move our table when I needed to get out to go to the restroom. Food was outstanding, portions were small, service was fine. It just wasn't the quiet intimate evening we were hoping for.

Second time at Eva. Food is excellent, service is fair, but the freezing cold room in the back is unacceptable. The floor is clearly suited to an exterior dwelling and needs a carpet or proper heating prior to being used for seating.

Food and service were, as usual, very good. However the recorded music they play is annoying as hell. Incredibly awful. You cannot have a conversation, “get ‘em in, and get ‘em out” as fast as possible.

The 2 dishes we had of 4 ordered were good, but our server had to have forgotten to submit the orders to the kitchen. We arrived at 6:30 PM right before a big rush and one dish was out within 5 minutes. But at one hour and 15 minutes later we had to get to the Billy Joel concert at 8 and the other two dishes were still in cue to be fired! In the mean time, other people who had been sat well after hour arrival were getting orders. The food was very good, but we fell victim to a lost order, which as a former server, happens now and then. Unfortunately I didn't get dinner that night, just a few bites of more of an appetizer portion.

The menu selection is quite broad and offers delicious choices for about anyone's pallet. The portions are fair size for Tapa's style dining. The servers were very attentive and friendly. This is a good place for a small meal before a show or ballgame. We will be back.

Three of us shared the fries (mediocre), steak brushetta (boring), corn (pretty tasty, very spicy and messy - there is no good way to eat this), fig and pig pizza (too much fig puree, argula pesto too strong) and calamari. The calamari was by far and away thru bright spot of this meal (and quite frankly of all the food I've had in SLC). I would order it as a meal and not share! My pot de creme was a really nice ending. Service slow in terms of drink refills. Also, it would have been nice to be offered extra plates for sharing so we didn't have to keep reusing the same plates.

When my wife and I can’t agree on anywhere else, this is where we come.

From the drinks to the small plates this is a great place to go enjoy a romantic evening together. Our palette’s are always surprised by the creative dishes put together at Eva.

If you enjoy unique cocktails, creative and locally sourced tapas; this is the place to go.

I've heard great things about Eva and my experience lived up to the expectation. Surprising flavors, multicultural influence and a great, yet compact wine and beer selection, I was thoroughly impressed with the food and drinks. The staff was friendly, fairly attentive for a busy Saturday night, however I do wish the specials were described as our server didn't give us any insight into what they were.

Food was fantastic, good recommendations by the server. We tried several different dishes and all were hits! The open air patio was quiet and romantic, but as we were leaving thru the inside dining room it, was very loud in there. We were glad to have eaten outside. We will be back!

Quaint, trendy. Good service, slow kitchen, understocked bar. Expensive, not very good value for food; that being said, very good food. I would return much more often if their prices dropped by 30 -40 %, but as it is : 4 (small) drinks, and 4 tapas was 87$ before gratuity, a bit overly pricey for 2 people conidering the area.

Excellent selection of tapas or small plates that actually all blend together well; none of the typical "oh this is really good but it doesn't really mix with that one you ordered" going on. We had 3 people at dinner and ordered 4 small plates and the 2 desserts and all were very well plated, creative and absolutely delicious!

Eva never disappoints. They make the BEST sauces in town, which I find to be quite impressive. We've been here several times. Best sangria in SLC. The spinach gnocchi is what dreams are made of and the street corn was the best I've had. Service always great! Can't say enough about Eva.

Eva was a lovely little restaurant that provided the perfect atmosphere for a casual date. The gnocchi was a favorite at our table, as was the asparagus plate. Definitely would recommend and left extremely satisfied with our service, the food, and the overall experience.

After looking through the menu, we were really excited to order and eat. We ordered 6 small plates. While the descriptions on the menu were mouth-watering, the execution was par. Nothing really stood out, and there wasn't one plate that had us thinking: "We need to come back and have that again." Nice atmosphere, par food.

Eva's steak and trout outstanding. The gem lettuce salad was shredded/finely chopped, very fresh, lightly dressed. Dressing light enough it did not interfere with he taste of wine. Sauces and rubs work. Just enough spice and heat. Great textures, nothing over-cooked. Small plate approach really works here. Very affordable.

Delish!!- wonderful cuisine and atmosphere. Small plates, shareable. Party of 8 before Book of Mormon - we loved it!
We ordered one of almost every dish on the menu and duplicates of certain ones +
a blend of specialty cocktails, a bottle of wine and corkage on a special champagne.

I would certainly go back over and over!
