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

Great local food restaurant in a new location. We shared a novel cheese appetizer and then the 'Chinese Box'. Great flavors and we liked the spicy jalapeno margarita as well!

Being in Boston this past weekend, a friend insisted we have dinner at EVOO and I am so glad we did! Food, service and atmosphere were all exceptional. The presentations were different but not fussy in any way. We were lucky to be seated at a high top, so we could enjoy watching the food being prepared in the kitchen.... More

I chose this place because it good reviews and the menu looked interesting. My dish was indeed interesting (including rabbit, polenta, fiddlehead ferns, and popcorn among other things) and despite the odd combination was quite tasty and well-presented. Atmosphere was pleasant--not exciting but not stuffy, good enough for a night out of dining and entertainment. Also, loved the chocolate salty... More

The service was very attentive and not in your face. The ambiance is also nice...fairly quiet, modern but nothing out of the ordinary. Food was also good but at the same time nothing that was very creative or new in my opinion. I actually have nothing bad to say about this place, I just wasn't impressed. For the money, I... More

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.
