Eve, in Ann Arbor, is an inspired eatery serving modern American fare with global inspiration in its charming and inviting restaurant. The crunchy conch fritters with cilantro salsa and crème fraiche and the curried mussels in creamy broth served with crusty bread make stunning starter selections. Some of Eve's specialty entrées include the wildflower honey and lavender rubbed lamb loin chops with mustard cream, the braised chicken with goat cheese polenta and spicy tomatillo salsa and the filet of beef chimichurri with coconut ginger rice, as well as a selection of family-style platter “feasts” for large groups. A full vegetarian menu with unique and perfectly prepared dishes is also featured. Popular veggie dishes include the Moroccan lentil purée, the spiced and roasted local yokel potatoes and the creole ratatouille. For a sweet end to your meal, enjoy Eve's triple chocolate pots de crème, ideal with coffee.

    All the dishes we hd were seiously spicey and not very tasty. This was the first time we had ever seen a 6 oz pour for a hard cider which you usually get the bottle and they charge $6.00 for that pour.

    Still hasn't disappointed. Cocktails were good as usual and we still love the crudites and brioche which is really just an excuse to eat the butters, although that makes it sound like the brioche isn't any good when it's delicious on its own. We had the simple steak again, wagyu filet, and tried the summer pulled pork open faced sandwich. Loved both!

    The food is outstanding and very spicy. It is presented beautifully. You must place your full order together (meal plus apps) so they time everything right, but when we needed the bill we waited forever. We never did get our leftovers to go. Otherwise this place was top notch. Every bite was unique and wonderful. We all loved it. The pancakes for dessert are to die for!

    Pleasantly surprised with the great taste of all dishes. Very flavorful. Had never been to the original or this Eve before and had heard mixed reviews. Cocktails were very good. Disappointed that we weren't able to order appetizers prior to ordering our dinner - our server made us order all food at once.

    Food and service was excellent! Ambience was good except for the lighting, the overhead lighting needs to be dimmed a bit to make it more romantic. The inspired nachos was really good but maybe lessen the oil because the wontons became soggy.

    Lovely, fresh modern feel. Comfortable and unpretentious. Exciting cocktails and a great wine list! The food was fabulous and I would order the heirloom tomato salad over and over again! My friends and I enjoyed every course and one of us ordered seconds of the sour cream cake with berries and whipped cream! The waitstaff is friendly and attentive. James, our waiter was especially nice and took care of us well!

    Great experience. The menu is creative and offered a wide variety of options, and the wine list with everything under $30 is great. It really feels like it should be a much more expensive experience, which makes it that much more enjoyable. The service is excellent as well, with a friendly/helpful waitstaff.

    Our food was wonderful. The service was not as we would have hoped. We made reservations weeks ago and the table they offered us was next to the restroom. We waited for another table and they were in no hurry to set it. The bartender ignored us while we waited. Our waiter was good, but brought us the wrong wine. They were very reasonable in adjusting the bill. I would go back again for special occasions.

    This is an upscale venue with a modern decor. The menu had a nice variety of items. We had the feast to share among all in our party. The food was delicious, served by a very friendly and capable waitress. The two entrees and four sides made it feel like a tapas meal, which we enjoyed.

    The restaurant is beautiful and unlike any other in AA. The food, while tempting from the menu description, didn't meet our expectations. The cocktails were delicious although the quantity seemed very stingy. I so wanted to love this place, but sadly cannot say that I do.

    We went to re-discover eve in its new location and were hugely pleased with the results. Food was terrific, and waitstaff were awesome. At one point there was a small glitch because a friend had called ahead to send over a nice bottle of wine to the table. The message didn't get conveyed. When the mistake was discovered, the folks at eve were beyond accommodating. We ultimately received the wine and much much more. We got pampered, and left feeling very special. We'll be back for more of this inspired food too!

    Another great dinner at Eve. The food has not ever disappointed us. We had the simple steak (wagyu) and harissa sea bass. The sea bass was as tasty as and melt-in-your-mouth as the first time we tried it and wagyu was one of the best filets we've had. We've never had wagyu before but it was worth it and cooked a perfect medium rare. The complimentary crudites and bread with butters are so good we never feel the need to get appetizers. We had the tequila old fashioned and basil malloy cocktails and enjoyed those. The chocolate pot de creme was a great way to finish with some coffee. Our server was attentive and helpful with the couple questions we had. We'll still be back!

    The food at eve is always excellent, and this night did not disappoint. The halibut, the lamb chops, the inspired nachos - all so yummy. The drinks are good, but don't dazzle, and are fairly small for the price. The service was far below expectation on this last visit. The waitress was pleasant enough, but not very helpful when offering suggestions or knowledge of the menu. Far worse, however, was that she completely ignored us a good part of the night. It was nearly 20 minutes after we finished dessert before we saw our bill. And then after another 25 minutes we had to flag down another staff member to have our bill picked up to be paid. Still, this is not the norm at eve, and we will continue to go back and enjoy the wonderful food.

    My very first romantic date with my now husband happened at Eve when it was located in Kerrytown. So, needless to say, the old Eve held a very special place in our hearts. We thought that spending the last night before we had twins at Eve would be a perfect way to celebrate. Unfortunately, the new Eve leaves much to be desired. From the layout (we were seated by the cramped service entrance and exit) to the food (even old standbys like the simple fish were overspiced, salty, and overpriced (entree of 5 shrimp plus two sides was $32) we were just. . .disappointed. When Eve closed, we were forced to look elsewhere to find a new "special occasion" place. We found the Sardine Room in Plymouth. Not only is the food fresh and inventive, the flavors are subtle and nuanced. And for a price that runs about 15% less than Eve, you will find us driving to Plymouth when special occasions call, rather than downtown Ann Arbor.

    Had an amazing birthday celebration dinner here last week. This is the perfect place if you're looking to celebrate a festive occasion (or just an amazing farm-to-table type meal) but looking for something hipper (and tastier!) than the Gandy Dancer or more elegant than Mani. We had the "feast" option on the menu, and it was both delicious and so much food that we needed about 3 boxes at the end. And while it was great for a special occasion, I'm also planning to go back for a cocktail and wonton nachos at the bar. Yum! My only disappointment was the lack of candle or otherwise festive birthday marker in the dessert at the end of the meal, even though they did comp our (yummy!) summer sundae in honor of the birthday. Thanks Eve for making our celebration perfect!

    Fabulous food!! Chef's creativity is palpable in the perfectly spiced and cooked novel recipes that will certainly please your taste buds. The bounty selections are unique and go very well with the entrees (esp when ordering a feast). Will make you want to come back and try the rest of the menu. Cocktail wise nothing strikingly different. The complimentary iced salad with mustard sauce and the bread with 3 types of butter will straight up impress you! Special occasion place with a rich ambiance.
