Great quality and selection

If you like healthier options that are also tasty and creative, EVOO fits the bill. Good service, friendly ambience, nicely crafted foods and extensive drink options. Great that there are options for many tastes--the vegetarian tamale was excellent!

Had dinner at EVOO with a group of business colleagues. We had relaxed and enjoyable dinner there with really good food, easy-going staff and rather casual environment. The restaurant is just off Broadway, right behind the One Broadway building. The restaurant has very casual decor; more like a bar than a restaurant. To match that, there is a large bar... More

Had a business dinner here with some clients. The dishes were very tasty. Service was very attentive and courteous. The portions were adequate and satisfying. The steak tartare was very good. The Chinese Box dinner was filled with flavor.

Attentive server who was forthcoming with his recommendations on the menu. Concise menu with what sounded like fresh and seasonal ingredients. Chicken sandwich and fries were good. The sockeye salmon entree was not so good as the fish was overcooked. We ordered a spinach and root vegetable side dish which was very good.

Came here once again, for a work lunch. Service was annoyling slow. Their chinese box, is to be avoided. Had before, and it is basically just a slimy, stir fry. This time, i went for the fettucine and as i ate it sitting opposite someone who was on the chinese box, i felt like i could be eating the same... More

I ate here recently with friends and loved the food. The combinations were inventive and the flavors were really phenomenal. The service was a bit sluggish on the night I visited but I would definitely return. Also, a very reasonable wine list. We found the restaurant difficult to find (even though we are generally familiar with the area) and the... More

I had dinner here mid-week and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Their meals are made with fresh ingredients and a modern spin. I had a flavorful beet and soft cheese appetizer that was melt-in-the-mouth delicious. For my main course, a grilled salmon with an apple coleslaw and a creamy brown rice base. The decor is casual and modern with the main... More

This is really my go-to spot for lunch in the Kendall Sq. area. Never had a bad bite here. A little bit pricier than the adjoining restaurants, but a value nonetheless.

I met a colleague for a business lunch. We chatted for a bit before ordering. That was a mistake: it took at least 25 minutes for a simple order to come out. I had to eat rather quickly and leave abruptly to make my next meeting. The food was yummy, but I won't go for a business lunch again.

We are going back soon, while the outdoor-eating weather lasts. Our dinner two weeks ago was delicious, just delicious. Everything tasted like what it is supposed to taste like. Why is this so remarkable? Because our food supply is so industrialized that we have forgotten what real food is. EVOO reminds us. When I asked why everything tastes so good,... More
