Lively place with a warm atmosphere. Waitress was really friendly and low key. Menu was interesting and "different" and the food was excellent. My wife likes restaurants that are a little "different" and EVOO did not disappoint.

Service was excellent and pleasant. beer and wine lists are very good. Food was decent, but maybe they are trying a bit too hard. For the price and based on past experiences at EVOO, I expected more. Dessert was a bit of a let down.

The food is presented beautifully almost like out of a gourmet food magazine! Not only that, it's delicious and your taste buds are alive and in a happy place! We order from a set menu and everything that our... More

We were looking for a restaurant in an area we were not familiar with and Evoo looked very nice from the outside, so we went in. The interior is very nicely decorated.We had a 2 year old boy with us and we were a little concerned as he can become fidgety and cry. We were warmly welcomed; seated toward the... More

We started with the blue hills blue cheese and fig spread and it did not disappoint. For the entrees we split the Chinese box filled with braised beef and mustard glazed shrimp and the homemade pappardelle. They both were excellent. The shared bar with Za has a great selection of seasonal cocktails. I had to to try the bacon infused... More

Great choice of food and the waiters knowledge of what was on offer was great he guided us through the menu well. My cocktail was great, not something I had tried before but recommended... More

We dined on NYE, thankfully for us the schools were all out of session. We had reservations, sat at one of the high-tops that looks into the kitchen, had some great food and good wine. The restaurants shares a bathroom with the pizza restaurant that it connects to. Very different atmosphere, but it does not intrude into EVOO. It was... More

Even though we arrived without a reservation on a wednesday evening, the restaurant crew managed to fit our party of 4 in, and we had a delightful dinner. Main courses are spectacular, and with fiarly big portions. Definitely a place I will be visiting soon again.

The key to Evoo's success is superb ingredients, beautifully prepared. They understand excellent food and are dedicated to quality. The only problem is that the restaurant fills up, it gets noisy because the acoustics don't favor the art of conversation over dinner. Apart from that, this restaurant is first class, highly recommendable.
