My friends and I came out together after a hard day at work and had such an amazing time. Carol was waiting on us and she was amazing! She was sweet and very on top of it, gave us the best recommendation for drinks and food and we truly enjoyed everything! We especially enjoyed the sides! Definitely recommend!

Food was amazing, but the waitress was horrible with checking our table, also my bull came to 115 which was ok but when i received statement waitress gave herself an extra 15$ tip, when her tip was already in gratitude.

Sadly EV has declined recently. The food is not as good, with a more limited menu and lower quality ingredients, and the service has declined markedly as well. I hope they are able to bring it back, as otherwise they are just another brunch place in the west village.

Met friends here for a catch up dinner. We got the Mac and cheese tart to start, I had the rigatoni bolognese which was great. I would go again as a back up plan, everything was good but nothing blew me away.

We had gone there for a friends birthday and everything was spectacular ,and wasn’t a dish we tried that wasn’t delicious. And the dessert as well and the apple pie and vanilla ice cream was one of our favorite.

Had a reservation for 3 indoors. Arrived an hour early and asked the host if we could grab one of the two free tables outside. They said no as they were being held for reservations. We came back an hour later (at the time of our reservation) and those same two tables outside were still free. We asked if we could have one of them, and they offered us a small, cramped, reject table at the end of the outdoor seating area (partially in the rain) instead of offering us one of the nicer free tables that have been sitting open for over an hour now that we had specifically asked for.
We complained, manager finally moved us to one of the nicer tables, and then we proceeded to eat as we watched more and more outdoor tables becoming available. There was clearly no shortage of tables…
As a former maître d of a restaurant that would constantly overbook, seating 500-700 people per night, the lesson here is to always find a way to upgrade a table unless you know with 100% certainty that you are going to screw over an incoming reservation. Instead, you screwed over my party unnecessarily and gained nothing but a bad review.
Also, very shady that this restaurant has added an automatic 20% gratuity to all the checks without an obvious call out on the receipt that the customer is asked to sign. They even left the Tip line so that you accidentally double tip.

Upon arrival, the restaurant was full and looked overbooked. Reserved indoor seating but our table wasn’t ready until an hour after our reservation. Host offered outdoor seating as an option but it was 97 degrees out and preferred to be indoors. Portions were good, sea bass was tasty, outstanding hanger steak but the mahi-mahi was dry. We were confused with the steady service that our drinks arrived warm. Service was okay.

The only major negative was they placed us at a really long table where people could only sit on one long side of the table with one person at each end, which was completely not ideal for our large group. This is not a table they should ever place a large group at (without asking first if the group is ok with it, which they didn’t) because it was like the head table at a wedding where you could only talk to the person next to you. We had people trying to get to know each other and this awkward table setup negatively impacted our experience.

WARNING. THE GRATUITY IS AUTOMATICALLY ADDED EVEN FOR SMALL PARTIES. Really enjoyed the food and service but was disappointed to notice (almost too late) the gratuity was automatically added. The dining room is very dark and I didn’t notice it on the bill. My friend noticed it. If a restaurant is going to do that, they should be more transparent about their policy. We were a party of 3.

This was a REAL disappointment. Right from the start, the host was extremely rude and short with us and in about 3 curt words told us to wait outside even though we had a reservation. When we finally got in the restaurant was SO loud we literally had to shout to one another just to hear ourselves. And btw the music was really bad — like loud club music from 2016?? The service was so slow and extremely inattentive— took about 25 mins for 3 basic cocktails. And the worst part was the food — wow. It tasted like something you’d get on an airplane on a budget airline. It was almost certainly frozen or reheated. Just really gross— almost inedible. And to top it off it was so overpriced for what it was. Will actually never go back. Haven’t had such a disappointing dining experience from A-Z in a long time but this was BAD.

I am a fan of Extra Virgin’s food - the majority of the menu is both healthy-ish, and delicious! However, the service really ruined the entire dining experience for our party. It was a 20 min ordeal to even receive water and drinks, and after that we weren’t able to get a water refill or another round until we were done with our food. 2/5 meals came out incorrect, just missing items that were apart of the dish. I was embarrassed for picking this spot because the service was so bad.

The environment was beautiful and very sweet - outdoor seating was comfortable and the heat lamps worked wonders. Food was delicious and service was speedy given how crowded the restaurant was. Would recommend to anyone looking to eat out in this neighborhood.
