Wonderful location, inventive menu, great staff

I met some old friends here for dinner on a breezy spring afternoon - although they have a nice outdoor patio we elected to eat indoors. The waitress was super-nice and very helpful in selecting among the local beers, even offering me a tasting platter of several. The menu has some really... read more

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel staff and was close by. Everything was excellent and they took care to provide gluten free options. Busy but friendly atmosphere, did not feel like we were being rushed out the door to free up a table.

First time here. Large group of 9 for business dinner. Menu options were great, service was very good, expecially given the large group.

I have only been to EVOO once, but won't return after ordering the "Chinese Box" lunch. I think it's fair to call it the "Chinese Garbage Pail." This meal is brought out and unappetizingly presented--the whole meal is packed in a chinese takeout box, and served with the box turned upside down so that the box is ceremoniously pulled off...

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

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!
