I was expecting a lot better. The whole fish was excellent. The octopus, lamb ribs and Rib-eye were disappointing. There are a lot of other places I would try before going back. However I would recommend trying for yourself. Service was great, especially the sommelier.

Minus the reservation fiasco, EV always delivers a flavorful and unique dining experience. The duck tongue tacos are phenomenal!

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. We definitely will return to try more dishes. The Ahi Tuna was amazing and the Oysters were refreshing. The table loved everything that was ordered. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.

Spectacular meal with coworkers. We had a vegan, a pescatarian, a meat & potatoes guy, and all were more than satisfied with the food. The service was great. The waitress was very knowledgeable, guided us to great choices on the eclectic menu, and served the food at the perfect pace so we got to enjoy everything throughout a long and thoroughly entertaining evening.

Offering ‘Happy Hour’ on Friday started dinner on a positive note! The meal was a smashing success! Our waitress enhanced our dining experience by going above and beyond; she noticed and fixed our wobbly table withOUT having to ask, (when the bartender was unable to make our drink orders) she came up with cocktail suggestions that hit the spot, and she coursed out our meal perfectly!

Every dish was exciting and lived up to Extra Virgins reputation.

Only negative: the acoustic ceiling tiles do almost nothing for the echo. The restaurant is loud for conversation. (The second floor dining room might be better if you want to visit with someone hard of hearing)

We went to Extra Virgin to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The staff was very accommodating and made a special occasion even more special. The food and drinks were excellent and the weather was perfect for outdoor dining. We cannot wait to return!

It was incredible start to finish. Our amazing waitress made the night even better with her awesome energy and attentiveness. The food was outstanding. Each dish was so carefully crafted and was made even better by pairing it with a bottle of rosé that was half price. Can not wait to go back again soon.

I went here on a casual date and we sat on the beautifully scenic patio. We ordered a half price bottle of rosé that I never had to pour myself. The server was a hawk at refilling our glasses. Each course came out very quickly and exceeded expectation with taste and presentation. The amount of care and passion for the art of food service was more than apparent in all facets of my visit. The manager touched our table multiple times and we were never in want of service. Our experience was expertly guided by the FOH staff. We got our final course and wanted a glass of red. They unfortunately ran out of Pinot noir, but the cab sauv was a stellar substitute. Four courses of gourmet food and a bottle plus two glasses of wine cost me $125. I will be coming back.

The service was very good. The server made a nice recommendation of the beefsteak tomato salad. My chicken livers over bread and my dates rack of lamb were excellent. I recommend the small plates for an interesting and unique dining experience.

This restaurant is a hidden gem. Great atmosphere and the food is unique and in small plates so you can sample several items and not walk away feeling bloated. If you haven't tried this place it is worth the effort!

Such a fun place. A group of four can burn through 8 different plates and never feel stuffed. Highly recommend the chicken liver, paprika shrimp, falafel, duck tongue tacos and hangar steak (so much more but trying to slim it down!).

Great first date spot. It was a hot weekend (temperature-wise) and the restaurant could have been kept at a lower temperature inside. Other than that, it was an enjoyable experience.
