beyond excellent

The food is in this restaurant far exceeded our expectations. The presentation was artful and the taste matched the appearance ... masterfully prepared and worth the price.

Terrific business lunch. Everyone enjoyed a quality, intersting meal and the service was efficient and excellent. The Chinese Box was a hit.

I'm giving a 4 because the food was real good and a bit on the unique side. I'm getting older and more critical when it comes to over pricing. Then Again, Boston/Cambridge,,,, nothing comes cheap, so I may be out of bounds on this. The type of music on the PA was annoying and a bit loud. Not even sure... More

This is a relatively new venue associated with the spot next door called Za (as in Pizza). Both places have a wide protected and south facing outdoor dining area. I went for lunch and had pate as a starter and the arugula salad which topped a beet medley for my main dish. The pate was mild, could have had more... More

Came on business and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Don't think it was cheap, but the menu was interesting and service good.

A really stellar showing of passed appetizers and cocktails...superb wines and then a three course meal served almost simultaneously to 33 people was a miracle. The corn bisque is out-of-this-world yummy, not too filling, and then the beef!! The beef could have been cut with a butter knife it was so perfectly prepared. Dessert was a sweet delight! Portions are... More

If you sit at the bar shared by the side-by-side restaurants Za and EVOO, you can order from the menu at both. This is a nice option if you are getting several small plates. Also the bar has an extensive cheese menu and charcuterie plate. I had the Chinese box, a unique dish of layered Chinese favorites serves in an... More

Great food, great service, strange location with a huge fan exhaust structure along the exterior of the patio dining area.

Not too many restaurants in this part of Kenmore Square--unfortunately. EVOO has a focus on create your own individual pizzas. Dough is ok. Service is ok. Bourbon pecan pie with fresh whipped cream is great! Overal ok-not great.

I really enjoyed my dinner with my co-workers at EVOO. I tried the rabbit mousse someone ordered. That was a little strange for me but not bad. My corn bisque and fried soft shell crab sandwich were delicious. It was definitely not cheap but well worth it to treat yourself after a long day at the office. The service was... More
