Mom and daughter night out

I went here on a Wednesday night with my mom. We came in around 6 pm. The restaurant was busy with people, except there was only one waitress working. She did a good job but I felt bad for her because she had her hands full and the manager did not seem to care at all. She was bussing tables,... read more

I've never had a bad meal in all the years I've been going to Evelyn's. My favorite dish is the Shawarma. It remains one of my favorite restaurants. It's the perfect place to kick back and enjoy a nice meal and some wine while watching a live band play into the night hours. I'd recommend Evelyn's time and time again.

This place really went downhill. The drink I ordered was missing ingredients. When I asked the waitress about it she said "the menu is really old". She didn't offer to replace the missing ingredients. We ordered baba ghannouj and got hummus. I ordered the lentil soup. It had no lentils in it and was tasteless. I told the waitress about... More

I have been a customer at Evelyn's since 1994. The food is healthy and delicious. My family always invite guests and visitors, to avoid having to cook for them, and to share the food quality we are lucky to have close to our residence. I cannot say enough about this restaurant and the good service we receive every time I... More

Friends recommended this place . I was a little hesitate because of the type of food but the GYRO plate was delicious. Since there was 5 of us ,the server recommended a platter of appetizers. Surprisingly, I liked most of them even though I had never eaten this type of food before. The outdoor bar area was casual & relaxing... More

Came here for my birthday because my favorite Lebanese restaurant was closed. The service was poor. The food was salty and lacked flavor. I did not care for the drinks as well. I just really wanted to get out of there. Won't be returning.

Three of us went and split a bunch of appetizers so we could try numerous things since everything on the menu sounded fabulous. Could not say which was my favorite- they were all excellent as we're the cocktails. Our waitress (Lotty I believe) was friendly and attentive and helped me pick a wonderful cocktail. And if good food weren't enough,... More

I love going here with my wife. The outdoor area is amazing. Food looks great and it's delicious. Big choices of wine, just perfect! We will return to you soon.

We have been going to Evelyn's for years so I thought it was high time to give them a very positive endorsement. Now that Spring has finally arrived, and the blasted Winter we just had is a memory, Evelyn's offers something that few other local restaurants can offer: an outdoor area in the back. With an ample bar that can... More
