Description: Restaurant Eve has one intention: to bring everything together in perfect harmony-ingredients, cooking techniques, presentation, and that ephemeral, indescribable characteristic that we call soulfulness. We purchase from farms that share our values of quality and sustainability, and showcase the best hand-fed, farm-raised, organically grown bounty Virginia and the surrounding countryside have to offer. Herbs and fruits are gathered from our own garden and everything on our menu has a story, every ingredient is special. From the various offerings of house-made products (which include 7-9 various breads baked daily and artisanal cheeses); to the roster of craft cocktails, by cocktail authority Todd Thrasher; to our carefully chosen ingredients, everything signals a seriousness and reverence for the farmers, crafters, and all the culinary professionals who wish to bring you beautiful food. Restaurant Eve, named after the husband and wife duo's first child, is located in Old Town, Alexandria, listed by many travel sites as one of the most romantic towns in America, 10 minutes from Washington DC, Restaurant Eve is housed in a late 1800's historic warehouse that has been converted into a charming and sophisticated destination. The cobblestone path leading to the restaurant's entrance is lined with candles that set the tone of what is to come. Inside, the space is simultaneously stylish, cozy and refined-a place where special occasions are fondly remembered.

“Always delivers!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

My wife and I have been to Eve many times. Although once to the Bistro area if you want the experience of a lifetime definitely book the tasting room. We have always gone with the Chef's Tasting to include wines and have never been dissapointed. We are both from NYC and Chef Armstrong and his flagship rank amongst the best if not better than many of the highly rated NYC establishments. Prepare to spend big bucks, but hey, for those special occasions you can't beat Eve.

“Absolutely Wonderful”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

A truly amazing, inventive dining experience. The price may be steep, but you get a truly creative evening of dining. Expect this to be a 3 hour dinner with many courses. We ordered the five course tasting menu, but in actuality it was more like 9 courses. One of the best places to eat in the DC area.

“Excellent Food and Service”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We came here in May to celebrate one of our closest friends belated birthday. The food was amazing, the service was delightful, and the atmosphere was fun! It's in Del Ray and sometimes parking can be tough. The food is American with a flair. A must try.
