Restaurant Eve has one intention: to bring everything together in perfect harmony-ingredients, cooking techniques, presentation, and that ephemeral, indescribable characteristic that we call soulfulness. We purchase from farms that share our values of quality and sustainability, and showcase the best hand-fed, farm-raised, organically grown bounty Virginia and the surrounding countryside have to offer. Herbs and fruits are gathered from our own garden and everything on our menu has a story, every ingredient is special. From the various offerings of house-made products (which include 7-9 various breads baked daily and artisanal cheeses); to the roster of craft cocktails, by cocktail authority Todd Thrasher; to our carefully chosen ingredients, everything signals a seriousness and reverence for the farmers, crafters, and all the culinary professionals who wish to bring you beautiful food. Restaurant Eve, named after the husband and wife duo's first child, is located in Old Town, Alexandria, listed by many travel sites as one of the most romantic towns in America, 10 minutes from Washington DC, Restaurant Eve is housed in a late 1800's historic warehouse that has been converted into a charming and sophisticated destination. The cobblestone path leading to the restaurant's entrance is lined with candles that set the tone of what is to come. Inside, the space is simultaneously stylish, cozy and refined-a place where special occasions are fondly remembered.

We were there for my birthday - I also have had a couple of events there for my office - but the service is good, the food is good but don't try to send something back that is not cooked to your satisfaction - evidently the "Chef Knows Best" and you will get it the way he thinks it should... read more

I went to this restaurant with a large group that had actually booked the entire restaurant for the occasion. So, I'm not sure how my experience compares to a normal night when they are open to the public. We had a 4 course meal with wine pairing. The plates were small, beautiful & bursting with fresh flavors. I ate every... More

I love going to a place where you can tell the management takes pride in every detail--the decor, the menu and the food, of course. Plus, it's so refreshing when the wait staff knows the menu and can make intelligent wine pairing suggestions. And I really appreciate having meals that I probably won't replicate at home. I have been following... More

This restaurant is situated off a quiet street in Old Town Alexandria. It was very quiet and had a nice selection of dishes. Also it served lots of ''goodies' in addition - a nice amuse bouche at the beginning, and a sip of soup at some point. The service was excellent, although I didn't like the fact that our table...

Restaurant Eve is a well known establishment in Alexandria. The atmosphere is great - its a nice set up and very comfortable. We therefore decided to have our friend's birthday dinner there. Due to the size of our party, 7 people, we were asked to work with the events coordinator, Keva. She sent us a pre-fix menu (which did not... More

Hands down, some of the most attention i have ever experienced dining. My guests and i had the five course tasting menu. We didn't want to miss anything.

We have eaten at Restaurant Eve a few times (lunches, dinners and brunch) and never been disappointed by the food. The service however is friendly but can be very slow.
