My valentine and I were catered to PERFECTLY throughout our first experience at EVOO. Our server (I think his name was Tim or Frank?), the restaurant, and especially Kristen Smith provided us with the exact atmosphere that we were hoping for, catering to our every need (including combining the gnocchi and duck sausage + confit entres-slight up-charge, but WORTH IT!). I have written maybe 3 restaurant reviews in my life thus far, but I felt the need to take the time to thank the EVOO team for helping to create one of the most incredible dining experiences of my life, and though I don't relish the idea of not being able to book a table at a place I so thoroughly enjoyed, it's definitely worth the risk to tout their awesomeness.

We heard that Evoo had great food but we were pleasantly surprised to find just how wonderful it is. Perfectly sized portions so we could enjoy all the courses. Our server was a seasoned professional who took care of our every need.

Valentine Day with my Sweetie
Great choices for dinner, and good wine selection.
The staff is very warm and welcoming.
The special oyster appetizer is “to die for”.
Every dish is given special attention with amazing presentation by an “army” of dedicated, commuted chefs. Their wine pairings are carefully chosen by Dan
And are a great addition to the meal. Highly recommend for special occasions, or a night on the town.

Service was good but the main meal was average and unfortunately cold when served. Dessert was awesome however. Best bread pudding.

The appetizers and dinners were great. The staff was very friendly. Parking was only $3 with voucher! It was out first visit, and we’d certainly go again.

The food was good and it came out in a timely manner. I was the host of the party and the waiter didn’t ask if I was going to drink anything. It would have been better if the waiter had more energy and was more engaging... maybe he was respecting our business meeting.

There were six of us. We all loved it I never leave reviews but this restaurant was so delicious and our server Eileen was so wonderful (and a party of six isn’t he easiest group to manage), and patient and accommodating, funny and kind. You can’t beat the price, the portions were so generous and absolutely everything we ate was fabulous. My new favorite place. Outstanding menu - outstanding everything

I called ahead to ask for a birthday candle to be put on the dessert. I reiterated that it was important. Cake came out with no candle. Told our waitress (who was very nice) and she said “sorry”. Told the desk person on the way out and asked if it had been written down on our reservation. Got another “sorry”. In all the years of celebrations at restaurants, this had never happened before. Called the manager today. Got my third “sorry”

Food was very good but not notably so. Very expensive. Won’t be going back. Too many great choices these days to go back there.

Not an overly large menu but enough tasty options. Parsnip soup was outstanding and the baked Haddock was cooked perfectly in a delightful sweet potato sauce. The staff was friendly and the service was good. It’s a little pricey but I’d go back it’s that good.

The sweet potato pie was a standout. The pig's head was tasty, with a perfectly crisp coating which went divinely with the poached egg. The fettucine was okay but not my favorite. The server was very friendly and helpful. The staff is exceptional at this restaurant.
