My family had dinner under the outdoor tent on 10/25. The heaters kept us very comfortable and the tent kept us dry. The food and service were excellent! We will definitely return again.

St Eves was outstanding! The food was delicious , the staff was attentive and friendly. We ate inside but still felt very safe as the tables were spread out and the door was open. We enjoyed getting take out from them in the spring and the food was always inventive and fresh and we enjoyed our special at home weekly dinners. We were so happy to return to eating at the restaurant and will return soon!

Food was great. Waiter was very good. The hostess is the worst. She is always rude and condescending. She alone makes people not want to go eat there.

We had the "special" appetizer, stuffed, bacon wrapped figs on a bed of greens and it was excellent. The entre of King Salmon supposedly on butternut squash with radicchio.
The salmon skin was charred, the radicchio was uncuttable with a knife ANs the yellow butternut squash sauce ? base was like cheese whiz. It was a special occasion that turned out to be a disaster. We were there 2 weeks prior on a Sat night. for a wonderful meal. We went back as a result. It obviously was not the same chef in the kitchen on Wed, 10/21/20.

Fabulous, delicious food and friendly service. The outdoor space was warm on a chilly night with a patio heater and welcoming with a lovely pergola bench to section off the eating area from the parking lot.

We had a 6:45pm table and did not feel rushed to leave.

The COVID precautions were good for keeping folks safe - tables at a good distance, mask observations are required & posted and staff compliant with wearing their masks properly.

Once again, delicious as usual. It was a joy to sit outside on the patio. Service is always gracious too. We had the gazpacho appetizer and duck spring roll. For our entrees, we had the pork chop and fish entree. And to finish off, we had the light refreshing pavlova and some mint ice cream. Always a pleasure to visit St. Eve’s during this hard times. Go and support local restaurants and defiantly put this gem in your list.

A last hurrah of sorts before restaurants in New Jersey close due to the Covid-19 virus. Some friends suggested that I take my wife to St. Eves for a birthday dinner. Our meal exceeded my expectations. For a starter, we both enjoyed the Endive Salad. The Mahi-Mahi Special and Short Ribs Special were outstanding. The short ribs were tender and moist while the fish was perfectly cooked. I recommend the Pavlova for dessert. Lorenzo provided attentive service and patiently answered our questions about the menu. The menu may not be extensive, but the entrees are creative, attractively presented, and flavorful. We will be back!

We could not have asked for more except maybe a table in a corner. The food was fabulous and plenty of choices so that each of the six of us felt like we had to choose among many choices. The service was personal and spectacular. Our every need was anticipated. This doesn’t usually happen. Normally someone has a bad experience when we go with six. We were all so pleased. Thank you St Eve’s. We love the ambiance, the service AND the food!!!

Reception at door was genuinely friendly and helpful. The menu was extensive. The food and wait staff was superior and will satisfy those who appreciate a great chef. The only demerit was the noise level. We went to the earliest (5:45pm) dinner when there were few people and was quiet. By the time we left a couple of hours later the noise level was much higher than we like but not enough to spoil our dinner.

First time at St Eve’s. My wife and I enjoyed the experience. Food was a little pricey , but good. Liked the ambiance, but it did get a little noisy as the evening progressed. Thought it was equal or better than the other area BYOB establishments we frequent. Will definitely return

I have been to this restaurant several times but have never been rushed out before. It was clear when we went for dinner at 6 they wanted us out quickly as the waiter asked for our food selection within 3 minutes of being seated. When we asked for more time the waiter gave us another 5 minutes. The main course came out so quickly we didn’t have a chance to finish the appetizer. After they rushed out dessert they asked us to leave for the next seating. The person who asked us to leave wasn’t even apologetic. It was the Saturday of Valentines weekend but there was no special menu or disclosed seatings. There were also empty tables when we left and no one waiting so why the rush. If you have time limits you need to disclose that. The table next to us was so loud that they apologized but the restaurant could care less. Very disappointing so now we will need to find a new place to have a leisurely dinner.
