“Spectacular! Dinner, performance and culinary class all in one!!!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

This "performance" dinner is 5+++ and if it's in your budget, not to be missed. Reservations are a must--preferably 7-10 days in advance. The monthly fixed menu is based on seasonal local specialties and chef's preferences. Chef Bob prepares dinner right in front of you, teaching as he cooks, sharing tips and answering your questions. The highest quality ingredients and superior culinary techniques combine to provide an unparalleled dining experience. Food allergies are gracefully accomodated. The emphasis is on flavors, ingredients and technique, not on recipes. Absolutely the highest quality dinner and total experience!!!

“Fun with Food on the West Coast”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

What fun! My husband and I can't remember a better dining experience in Cannon Beach. Bob and Lenore make guests feel welcome, relaxed, and convivial. Besides the excellent several course meal with wine pairings, we really liked getting to know our table mates. Being the main cook in our home, my husband came away with some useful tips and techniques. He's primed to start using his home-grown herbs and spices in new ways and to start cooking salmon and steak in new ways, as well. This restaurant has it all- great food, great wine, great cooks, great atmosphere, and great culinary strategies. Recommendation- Reserve way in advance. We were lucky to get two seats four days out.

“A cooking lesson and fabulous dinner!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

We went with 2 other couples ad learned how to cook about 6 dishes, and then ate what the chefs prepared. Matched with wines, the food was fantastic and it made for a great experience.

“You won't find this anywhere else”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

EVOO does a wonderful lunch every day at an appointed time. Guests are invited to sit together at seats around the cooking area (there is also outdoor seating). Everything is made on the premises. The offerings are high-quality, gourmet meals, with fascinating conversation and a relaxed atmosphere.

“Fantastic Dining Experience”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

We attended the farmers market dinner show - the hosts (Bob & Lenore) create a great meal made with a number of fresh fruits and vegetables obtained from the market that day. All other items (we had Pork) are obtained from local farms. We enjoyed a 4 course dinner that was simply fabulous. You can purchase wine or non-alcoholic drinks prior to the show.

You are seated around the prep area watching two trained chefs create a meal directly in front of you (the room can hold about 16 people). You can ask questions as things move along and the banter between the guests and the hosts is great. If you enjoy fine dining, culinary instruction, with a great atmosphere this is for you. We would highly recommend EVOO cooking school if you are in Cannon Beach...something we will definitely do again next time we are visiting. Exceeded my expectations!
