    Eve is one of the best restaurants in town. Sadly, it has closed, but if it ever reopens, it's a must-eat for anyone who enjoys fine food and drink, in an excellent atmosphere.

    Eve is a favorite for my wife and I. The food is always amazing (especially the inspired nacho's) and the service is great. They really go the extra mile. When we arrived most recently, a table wasn't quite ready for us yet, so they gave us complimentary toasts of Champagne.

    We tried eve on it's last week in business, and I must say I wasn't blown away. The tables are too close, so it was a lot like having dinner with the guy sitting next to us and they didn't mention my dinner would contain cilantro, something I detest. The food was great, once I scraped off the cilantro, but the entire night wasn't worth they hype or the money. I don't mind sitting so close to another table, but not when I'm spending $30 for an entree.

    In short, the service was slow and a bit amateur all night. They also did not have enough wine and drink lists. The seating is a bit crowded, it's like moving around in commerial class of a flight that's completely booked. I felt like if my husband and I said anything everyone could every word we said. The only complaint about the food is that my peice of meat was not butchered correctly. Other than that, the food was some of the best and most creative I've had! I'd go back for the food, just at a earlier time so it won't be so crowded.

    We sat by the door so we had a continuous breeze of cold air every time the door open, but otherwise the atmosphere was very romantic and comfortable. The herbed butter and nachos were excellent but the Moroccan scallops were way to salty for me, and I typically like alot of salt. The staff was outstanding and although the experience wasn't perfect I would still go back to try it again.

    The decor was tasteful and appropriate for fine dining, and the service was outstanding. However, the quality of the food did not live up to our expectations. I have to say the bread and infused butter we were served at the beginning of the meal was the high point of the evening. After that we were served an overly seasoned and over fried and greasy lamb appetizer. The scallops I received as my entrée were the saltiest food item I have ever received at a restaurant. Normally we would have sent our food items back to the kitchen, but unfortunately we have come to expect this quality from Ann Arbor restaurants.

    Eve is nice place just for drinks and appetizers. The weekdays are quiet and the restaurant is not packed. The food and ambiance have been great in the past. Prices are high, so not for the budget conscious.

    One of, if not the best, dining experiences of our lives. We have dined at top end restaurants in Hawaii and the food and service at EVE's surpasses all others by far. From start to finish every dish was prepared perfectly. Our only regret is that we did not have room for dessert.

    Eve once again provided a wonderful setting for a special dinner out. The arrival of each plate was timed just right (not too long between each dish) and the bartender thoughtfully split our martini, which we had requested to share. Our server Elizabet(h) was attentive and incredibly thoughtful as well. The Lamb in Brik and Inspired Nachos were delicious as was the autumn seasonal dessert. By the end of the night my fiance and I left Eve with wonderful memories and a delicious meal. We will definitely keep coming back for special evenings.

    Not worth the money if you're really looking for excellent food. The protein portions are creative, but the sides were all nearly all the same (e.g. the seafood and fish dishes came with the same coconut jasmine rice) and all plates came with the same "melange" of seasonal vegetables. These were peppers, zucchini, onions and carrots... the former two not being seasonal in Michigan in December. The appetizers (i.e. conch fritters and pinenut encrusted taleggio) were the highlight, but the entrees were disappointing (i.e. duck and beef tenderloin medallions). They were good, but left us flat in our enthusiasm. I would say the food at Vinology is more interesting, better prepared, and a better value. The service was also very stilted and the s

    Went to eve on a Saturday evening (12/11) after it was highly recommended by some friends. I was extremely disappointed with the service. We had been seated for over 10 minutes before anyone came by to get our drink order - and it was NOT busy. Throughout the night I had to ask several time to have our waters refilled. Finally, the waiter completely forgot to bring the after-dinner espresso we ordered. The food was good but a little overpriced in my opinion. The menu seems ambitious but this not a place for someone who is not at least a little adveturous or has a fairly wide range of tastes. There was no basic chicken or filet mignon.

    The service was great. We had a very intimate corner booth with exposed brick giving it a very good ambiance. Each course had Eve's stamp of unique flavors and textures. She is a big fan of giving every course a "kick" of flavor. The homemade cheeses were wonderful. The wine list was very reasonable and complete. A nice bottle of 2007 Jason was around $70 which is a very good buy. I love that she put her self on the line and did things a bit different. Not for everyone, but I enjoyed the adventure with Eve's special Michigan touch on every dish.

    I brought my Girlfriend there for her Birthday. Our dinner reservation was prompt.Wait staff was courteous. I mentioned the Birthday in my reservation thru this website and they brought a nice surprise desert ending our enjoyable evening without me asking. The food was great. I have read several comments that the prices are too high but I felt the "value" also included the great service, atmosphere and the attention to detail. Overall I would gladly recommend Eve to any of my friends.

    My husband and I live in San Francisco. We are proud of the restaurant scene in our town, and expect a lot when we go out someplace new. Eve brought us everything we hoped for and more. The food was interesting and absolutely delicious. The wait staff was very helpful. We loved the details from the herbs in the vase on the table, to the three different types of butter, to the wine list that included an entire page of wines for under $30 a bottle.

    We've been eating out at least 1-2 times per week in Ann Arbor for the last 5 years and this was the best single meal we've had. Feature NY strip with sweet potatoes au gratin was amazing, Great wine list with tons of $30 bottles that were really good. Definitely our new favorite Ann Arbor Restaurant.
