We had a really terrific dinner here recently with a large family group. Outside patio seating on a lovely evening set a wonderful stage for a fun night. And our server Dan was just great, anticipating our every request. The food was very good, starting with the bread basket chockablock with skinny, salty breadsticks and delicious bread to dip in...

We ordered corn on the cob , salads and chips to share, then each ordered a large or two small plates for a main. We all agreed this was too much food but wanted to try most of the menu-- there were six of us. Strongest dish-- the eggplant, weakest-- the steamed chicken,

We were visiting Boston and went on a quest to find a farm-to-table experience for dinner one night. We found it at EVOO. There were 11 of us and they graciously accommodated our huge party at the last minute. Everyone ordered something different and it was all delicious. Highly recommend!

This was my fourth time dining at EVOO and I am not sure there will be a fifth. The food was good but not as unique and flavorful as it had been on my previous visits. The service however, was a big disappointment. Our server appeared rushed and did not take the time to appropriately greet us, answer questions or... More

I went here as part of a women's mentoring session - and we. dined. well! Great wine list - and we all loved our entrees. We passed on the appetizers, but I had the beef tartare (a little creamier than usual, but I liked it) and fiddlehead ferns were in season, so I enjoyed sautéed fiddleheads. The upside-down bento box... More

EVOO is one restaurant in Kendall Square clearly worth a visit. We were a group of friends visiting for lunch and had a great time. We all went for the Herb Marinated Baked Haddock Fillet and were very happy with the choice, super tasty and great presentation. The service was nice, friendly and accommodating. I could go back for this... More

Quite disappointing experience. I will not come back. FIrst, the terrace is very nice, but the inside is not very appealing. Noisy, dark and somewhat packed. We also had a table right by the entrance, which didn't help. Service was speedy and fairly disorganized. Worst Gin&Tonic ever. The food was a strange mix: my tenderloin was tasty and well cooked,...

Awesome bread sticks and bread are worth the trip but great salad, port special and chocolate desert with toasted marshmallow made the dinner memorable. Must go back soon.

I ordered the burratina salad and a chile relleno with unusual ingredients; my wife ordered a green salad and short ribs. She also ordered a nonalchoholic mojito. The food was well prepared and tasty. The service was good. The restaurant gets extra points for an unconventional menu.

I had never even heard of EVOO when I joined friends there. The food was excellent and only trailed the service. It was informal, quiet enough to carry on discussions, and friendly from reception to departure. The Chinese Box - small version -- was absolutely fantastic and definitely more than enough for the meal. We will go back and glad... More
