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

The salad was delicious although a little sandy. The main course of salmon was perfectly cooked and the desert scrumptious!

Went here for lunch and was a delightful experience. Tasty food, good service and reasonably priced. Sort of fusion but not pretentious or confusing. Recommended

I recently visited EVOO with a small group of six. The waitstaff was most accommodating. We were seated in a semi-private area so we could visit, chat, and enjoy. Our server offered explanations of the intriguing menu selections. The shared appetizers were very good. My beef tenderloin was one of the best I have ever had! Our shared desserts were... More

Evoo has an excellent menu and ambiance and great service! There were so many cocktails that I wanted to try that I'll definitely come back just to try those - my strawberry margarita was amazing. The meal started off with a colorful colander of bread (so cute!) accompanied by olive oil and parmesan cheese. For appetizers my boyfriend and I... More

Dinner at EVOO was excellent, indeed. Following a glass of Prosecco and an assortment of olives and cheeses - the fresh olives were outstanding - I enjoyed a salad of arugula, fiddleheads,feta, and asparagus, and then a nice piece of tenderloin. The warm chocolate cake floating on toasted marshmallow cream was great, and the espresso was much better than you... More
