This garden restaurant is in a valet parking, which is great in downtown Portland. Environment was perfect for quiet lunch with friends or business meetings. A nice oasis from tourist chaos. Food was very good although stark with no garnishes or extras on plates. A good find for us.

The title says it all - fine atmosphere, attentive service but food that is simply bad...

Found this place by accident and it was fabulous! Sat outside by a small fountain for a quiet dinner. Food was absolutely delicious from the grilled romaine salad, tender short rib and luscious tiramisu. Waiter was helpful and friendly. Would recommend this restaurant highly.

Based on other open table reviews, I expected much better food and service at a fine dining establishment. The lounge area is essentially in the small dining room and dining outside was out since it was raining. The lounge makes the restaurant noisy. The food was good, but swordfish entree had odd seasoning, especially curry on risotto which tasted like curry powder was sprinkled on it. Appetizers on the other hand were quite good, especially burata salad and fish chowder. The best part of the meal were the desserts. Service, on the other hand, was fair. We were treating our friends whom we were visiting; and though they enjoyed it, it was not up to my standards.

Everyone here was so warm and friendly and accommodating. We had hoped to eat in the garden but it rained so we sat next to the window looking onto the garden. The food was wonderful, service was excellent and we had such a great evening there.

We needed a restaurant for dinner on what turned out to be Friday night of "camp week", when families bring their kids to Maine for camp, and go out for one last dinner together. None of our usual choices in Portland were available, so we chose Eve's. Expectations were modest, since, well, it's in a hotel.

Weather was nice so we ate outdoors in the courtyard. Everything was excellent. Great food, served promptly. Attentive wait staff - there when we wanted them, and out of the way when we didn't. Plenty of choices on the wine list, by the glass or bottle. And the prices were not as inflated as a typical hotel restaurant.

We'll be back.

I live in Portland, and am frequently guilty of forgetting about Eve's great patio. Inside, it's your basic high-end hotel dining spot, but it boasts a cute enclosed garden patio, great for lunch and (I assume) dinner. The menu isn't lengthy, but provides a number of great options for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike. Upscale enough for a business meal, but not stifling--great for enjoying the lunch hour during the workday, too.

We had a very nice dinner at Eve's. The wine was excellent. The salad and main course were well prepared and presented. Desert was particularly good. I suspect eating outside would be particularly good, but the weather would not cooperate the night we were there.

Eve's at the Garden is located in the Portland Harbor Hotel. The outside is not open yet, but when it gets warmer, it will be a great outdoor dining experience. The food was great and the servers were knowledgeable, although a bit busy. All four of us enjoyed our meals, which were excellent. Will definitely go there again.

Food and service were very good and the ambiance was excellent. Would like to go back for drinks…
Front of house lacks polish and finess. Was taken aback when hostess said she had no record of reservation though I confirmed on Opentable. There was plenty of room, but still not the best way to handle it, especially in front of my guest who was less than impressed. Didn't bother to correct herself either. Polish should be part of the deal at this level.
