OpenTable Diner (Washington DC)

The menu that is on their website is a bait and switch. The menu that is in the restaurant is about 25% of what they actually of what they tell you they have online. The food was good but service was slow, and we were let down the second we saw the menu was not what was advertised. When we asked about the dishes that were on their website, they said they no longer offered those dishes...CHANGE YOUR WEBSITE!

Our evening would have been very lovely had it not been for really odd service from our waiter, Hamid. First he got irritated that - when we said we didn't want sparkling water,, it didn't mean we wanted bottled still water. Then it took forever to take our order and get some wine. He told my friend, when she was prepared to order a full bottle of wine, that she couldn't taste the wine first, even though it was also offered by the glass. She corrected him. Although we all ordered a number of small plates (which means a sort of constant flow of food), they arrived very unevenly. One of us sat with no food for QUITE a long time, while two of us had two plates each. After about 20 minutes, the other plates all appeared.

At the end of the meal, we apparently asked too much when we gave 3 credit cards to split the bill evenly 3 ways. He seemed irritated and overwhelmed.

To be fair/kind, it might have been Hamid's first few days of working as a waiter. But his attitude and abruptness very much impacted our evening. And that's too bad. The food was very good, and having had a pleasant lunch there before, we were surprised by this.

The perfect restaurant to meet a friend for lunch. Very good food with a wide choice. Excellent service. Low noise level. All appreciated.

What an unexpected find. Very unassuming from the outside. Evo is just a jewel of a restaurant. Our food was perfection, as well as the wine. Server was friendly, and accommodating. What more could you ask for? Can’t wait for our next visit!

We attended the Chateau de Saint Cosme wine dinner. A fantastic value at $65, and poorly attended. Apparently there were many last minute cancelations. Everyone that cancelled and anyone not on the restaurants email list should be kicking themselves for not attending. The 4 course meal was fantastic with great wine pairings. For wine dinners, the chef is provided the wines in advance and takes geat care to create dishes that pair well. He is extremely creative and it is an opportunity to sample dishes not on Evo's regular menu. If you get notified of a wine dinner, GO!

reason i rated service fair is because my friends and I wanted to get the happy hour red (because they had tried it before and liked it) but because we were not seated in the bar (even if we wanted to, there was no more room in the bar), the waiter said we couldn't order it, even if we wanted to pay a different price than the happy hour price. That is ridiculous... Disappointing.

As always, EVO does a great job. We enjoyed the Cakebread winery pairing event. The food was delicious: small, just-right portions paired perfectly with the wines. We especially liked that this menu featured courses that even a non-adventurous companion could enjoy. Of course, the wines were a real treat.

Evo Bistro has become my favorite spot in McLean for French bistro cuisine. Friendly service and delicious food.

I always enjoy eating at Evo Bistro. I had tpas - Tomato Tartare, Ribs over mashed potatoes and vegetables, and a Mushroom dish. I am on a gluten free diet and it was easy to find excellent food choices that I could eat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Evo Bistro. Our waitress was Russian and was delightful. I'm sorry I don't know her name. My husband had the Steak Oscar & I had mussels. Both were very good.

The service is the best around. The chef made a custom paella for us. The wait staff is what makes this place amazing. Our waiter made sure everything was just how we expected and was so helpful with the menu. We love this place. Great food and wine.
