My girlfriend and I wanted to have dinner at Evelyn’s before New Years celebrations. I called to confirm the Restaurant hours for 12/31. I was told the restaurant would be open until 7 so I proceeded to make a reservation for 6pm. After trying to contact the restaurant numerous times to confirm my reservation vocally, we proceeded to head over at 5:30 to Evelyn’s only to find that it was closed as expected from our calls not being answered. This is unacceptable, and I don’t understand why whomever answered the phone said they would be open.

They were closed when we arrived for our 11am reservation. I brought 2 clients and was embarrassed. Our lunch meeting was delayed by an hour. Horrible Experience.

The live band was great, the atmosphere was beautiful. Great selection of food. I will definitely be back if I am ever in town again.

Surprisingly, a very nice outdoor backyard space shielded from the hectic street near all the Rutgers buildings an Easton Ave. The food was fresh and very good as we tried a bit of everything on the menu. But, for me the kicker was there was plenty of draft and craft beer to choose from!

Given its reputation, I was expecting more in terms of food and atmosphere.

Good food, terrible service. They are horribly understaffed. I always ate at the bar in the past and would recommend doing that. Takes a half hour to get a cocktail, then food and apps come out at the same time.

It was a corny place. Chicken and lamb was overcooked and dry as hell. I would never go back to this place. Our meal and 4 drinks for 2 people came to $120. Money straight in the trash. I would not recommend this place.
