    Had the best time enjoying brunch with my girl friends! We had a wide variety of food from both the brunch and lunch menus including the Brussels sprout salad, fried rice and breakfast sandwiches! The ambiance was amazing, service from Skyllar was unbeatable! My favorite part had to be the drinks the espresso martini and spicy margarita are the best! Could not recommend a better place for any occasion!

    I have frequented the E&O in Hyde Park many times and have loved each visit, so I was expecting the same reaction at the Banks location. I was not disappointed. I was entertaining guests who had no knowledge of E&O and one was a vegetarian with gluten allergies. E&O had eight choices for my guest including dessert! Food was delivered smoothly and service was excellent. Anything that is marked in a box on the menu, is a Chef’s Choice and will not disappoint. Key Lime pie is amazing. Will definitely be coming back to this location.

    Heard alot of good things about E+O. Had a date night with my girlffriend and we went to the Banks location. Restaurant is in good location and easy to find. Nice atmosphere, but it was cold inside, even being away from windows it was still a bit cold. Ordered the Shrimp Ceviche for appetizer, Buddah tuna poke bowl and a Rainbow Roll( i believe). Nothing was bad but just ok. Value was not worth what we had. Could I eat there again ,yes but it will not be on the top of my list.

    Always a greater experience. I have celiac’s so it is so refreshing that the soy sauce is all gluten free. My go to is the steak fried rice and it’s always delicious. The staff is always wonderful as well. Keep up the great work.

    The was an interesting experience to say the least. First we started off by being greeted by someone who I would assume was the manager? Who then told us we had to wait for a host. We proceed to wait 5 minute just to be ignored and have other people sat before us. Service could have been better. Portions were tiny. Food was good though

    We love E&o but last 2 times the service has been strained. Our server was very knowledgeable and personable but the drinks took sooooo long, the last 2 times. We got our appetizers before our first drink, which we ordered first. Last time I ended up having to go directly to the bar because it was about 30min and no drink. If you guys can figure that out 5 stars all around!

    This was our first experience at E+O. We have enjoyed Asian fare at many local establishments. This experience was beyond disappointing. The staff was poorly trained on the menu and drink offerings. The food quality and temperature was very sad. The speed of service was very slow especially given how empty the place was. We definitely won’t be return customers!

    We like the Napa salad. The chicken stir fry was delicious. The steak stir fry had gtound up meat thus lost the taste of steak. Hyde Park served it in chunks like the chicken and it had more flavor. The stir fry is an ample serving. Service was a bit slow and perhaps fuller descriptions of food are needed as one couple needed an extensive discussions on the menu. The place is well decorated and the front tables have a nice view of the Banks and river,

    TERRIBLE service overall. We were running late so I called them just to let them know we would be a few minutes later than expected, I know this is convenient for the staff, but the staff member I spoke with on the phone hung up on me after hearing we would be late. I understand this could be a mistake but didn’t seem that way… The restaurant was practically empty but it took each drink we ordered 15-20 minutes to come out. Throughout the entire dinner, even when the place was almost empty. We didn’t have napkins or silverware after being given our food and we waited 10 ish minutes to get them, while we watched the majority of the staff stand around and chat with each other. It was my birthday dinner, and they specifically asked when I was making the reservation if there was a special occasion, asked AGAIN when we got there, and AGAIN by our server when greeted, then there was nothing to make it different or special from a regular dinner. I understand there is no obligation to do anything unique by the staff… but why ask??????? So weird. I’ve been a big fan of E+O’s Hyde Park location and this was my first time at the banks location but yikes…
