Needs a little extra work in the kitchen to return to its pre-pandemic 5 star level but still very enjoyable.

We love St Eve’s. They aim to please all around, from the arrive, food and ambience. It is our go-to place as we do like the atmosphere very much. We have been taking family and friends for a few years now, and everyone has enjoyed it. Last friends we took not only enjoyed their food but remarked how we could talk and hear each other!! Everyone who works there is pleasant, professional and focused on giving you great service.

The last dinner we had in a Bergen County restaurant, pre-pandemic, was here. It was only fitting that we celebrate our anniversary at St. Eve’s. You cannot go wrong with any of the salads. The Goat Cheese and Beet salad was tasty and attractively prepared. You cannot go wrong if you have the Salmon entrée or the Short Rib entrée, which are outstanding. For dessert, I suggest the Pavlova. Thank you Michael and Christine, for your attentive service!

I have been to St. Eve's several times over the years and have enjoyed it each and every time. Food is superb, service is attentive and efficient and ambiance is comfortable. My only suggestion is that the dishes we ordered, while delicious, had a fall feel to them in terms of ingredients, presentation and taste. Perhaps they could add some summer dishes to the menu with more seafood options and lighter preparations.

Disappointed because they had run out of their mussel appetizer and we only found out as we were beginning to order. Otherwise good was very delicious.

This was the first visit to St. Eve's (took out last year). The food was wonderful and the service was impeccable. Questions asked were answered in a detailed yet easy to understand manner/ I would highly recommend St. Eve's either for a special occasion or just for a very nice evening out.

The food, service and atmosphere were all impeccable. We had the blood orange salad and duck confit salad before, both wonderful. For main we had the duck breast with blueberry sauce and the flat iron steak with panzanella. Both entrees were cooked to perfection and enjoyed thoroughly. A fabulous night!

Very rarely do I post negative comments. But, at a restaurant I go to at least once a month especially through the pandemic- I was very disappointed with the Head Receptionist. We were seated at 5:45 - party of 5 at a Table for 10 people. When I made the reservation I was told that I had to vacate the table by 8:00 for a party of 10. Now there were other table they could have put together for us. I said no problem, we would. At 7:45, we paid our check and I went to the Ladies Room to help my Mom. As we headed back to the table at 7:52- the Receptionist said to me, remember I told you that you had to vacate your table by 8:00. Not thank you for coming and spending $400.00 and tipping your server 20%, and supporting us during the pandemic. The rest of the table was already up and heading towards me. So as delicious all three courses of dinner we had, the parting words were “Remember I told you you had to vacate your table by 8:00 for a party of 10. I think the Owners need to know this because it left a very bitter aftertaste.

Great little gem! The decor reminded me of a 1930s living room and I'm all for it! The lighting was a bit dim which the manager insisted upon. But the food was outstanding! Highly recommend the duck spring rolls and mussels to start! The filet Mignone ravioli was mouth watering. Also don't forget the ice cookie sandwiches. Loved this place!

It’s always a treat to dine at St. Eve’s. The only problem - the menu is so good that it’s hard to choose. Our dinner was perfect from the appetizers - blood orange salads, endive salad, and softshell crab tempura style - to the main courses - lobster ravioli with shrimp in a buerre blanc sauce, king salmon and grilled flat iron steak, to the desserts - pistachio creme brulees, chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich with mint chocolate chip ice cream and warm apple crisp with homemade vanilla ice cream.
The service is wonderful and the atmosphere is most pleasant.
We were having such a great time that we were the last to leave.

Absolutely delicious as always. The soft shell crab appetizer was great in addition to the halibut and John Dory special. We finished off with the peanut butter and chocolate semifreddo. Service is very professional and outside is very relaxing and calm to make dinner a wonderful evening. Thank you once again.

We dined on a Saturday and were seated at 8 pm. There was a moderate crowd so good buzz without being loud. The food was really excellent. To start, I had mussels and my wife had endive salad. Our entrees were the flatiron steak and the veal chop. The cef didn't put a foot wrong. Our waitress was lovely, knowledgeable and attentive without hovering. In all we had an extremely enjoyable evening. Highly recommended.
