Food was expensive but just ok. Only 1 server on duty and she was clearly overwhelmed. We don't blame the server because it was not her fault but made for a poor dining experience. Mentioned we we celebrating birthday(actually 2- the 11th and 9th) when I booked through open table and even mentioned our friends' birthday several times in front of our server and nothing was acknowledged. Better choices elsewhere. Regrettably we won't be back.

Spectacular restaurant. Our fourth or fifth visit - it just gets better every time. Two small issues, but everyone knows about these - noise just gets high when every seat is taken! Vigorous crazy atmosphere on Saturday nite!
Also, our server was efficient, and not as personable as the previous servers we have had here. But you can chalk it up to the really busy atmosphere. We always prefer a waitperson who takes a few minutes to chat. Just not possible when the place is full. Despite the craziness the service was perfectly timed and provided!

Cappuccino was our dessert but there were many really yummy desserts to choose from.

Not impressed. Food was okay but not for the price, needed flavor - no salt and pepper on the table. Noisy, tables too close together - I could hear the conversation better at my neighbors table than at my own. Disappointed.

My wife and I had been to St. Eve's a couple of times prior to Thursday evening and decided to host a family dinner at the restaurant on the occasion of our birthdays. We enjoyed appetizers, pasta, entrees and dessert all paired with a fine wine. From start to finish we all enjoyed an outstanding meal accompanied by Christine's excellent service. Our opinion was shared by our adult children and their partners. We highly recommend St. Eve's, bon appetit!

Menu and specials never fail to please. Very creative chef. I would never have considered putting a Thai spin on mussels and they were sublime. As always, Anik welcomed us with her smile and warm approach. Our server Christine was knowledgeable on the ingredients and preparation procedure of each dish. The kitchen is always willing to omit something or tweak a dish to your needs or preference.

Noise level very high. Difficult to hold a conversation. Appetizers were the goat cheese fritter which was good and the shrimp remoulade which was not good. Shrimp were fishy and the remoulade was unlike any remoulade I’ve ever had. Definitely a dish to avoid. The swordfish was mediocre and the chicken just fair. The apple tart was good but the cinnamon ice cream did not have any taste of cinnamon. Given the prices, sound level, and mediocre food not a place I could recommend.

Nice environment and decent food. The problems were a. way too loud environment (have to shout to be heard) and b. snooty chef: when my wife complained that her steak was not MR, instead of bringing a new one they insisted that it was cooked to her liking...not very accomodating and we were still charged $38 for the entree.

On a recent Friday night, the food and service were both very good. The only problem is the noise level in the main room once it fills up. Wish management would install some carpeting or sound-absorbing panels to help with this!

Good service and nice ambiance. Having Type 1 diabetes, I ordered my dinner with sauce on the side. It arrived with sauce on the salmon. I didn’t want to delay my friends whose dinners had also. arrived, so I did not send it back to the kitchen. Everyone enjoyed the food.
