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.

This is supposedly the best restaurant in Alexxandria. We were very happy with the food and the service was very friendly if a little confused at times. They kept serving the wrong food to the wrong person, which is not a big deal but for a restaurant of this quality you would just expect a... read more

Impeccable service and ambiance is what sets this restaurant apart. We did a 5 course tasting menu with pairings. Yes it was $500 w/ tip but its more of an experience than just going out to dinner. The courses were larger than a IALW or LaTreque at Nemacolin which are 5 stars. This is the second restaurant in a row... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Alexandria, and in Washington D.C and so far in the USA! We often pop in for lunch, just to the bar for their special lunch menu. The food is always fresh, locally sourced and just so tasty. I love the way the chefs pull all the flavors together and everything on the menu is... More

A group of six dined here to celebrate an engagement. The service was excellent and the food was superior. I would say that this restaurant is perfect for a special dinner. It was classy, but a step above casual. It is great for a celebratory meal. I loved that they don't have ala carte, but instead have several options for... More

This place knows food. Pure and simple. Hands down, this was the best meal we've had in a year of exploring dining establishments in Old Town. It also rivals the best in the District. Each tasting on the five course menu was superb, and the wine pairings could not have been better. Yes it's pricey, but it's worth every cent!... 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.

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...
