“Loved this place! Nice decor and great food”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We loved our dinner at E&O! We were there on a Saturday evening, made reservations first. We were seated near the kitchen, it was nice to see the cooks perform their magic :) We loved the decor, it was modern and asian, great vibe.

We had two vegetarian dishes, one was the pad thai and the other one was a spicy Japanese dish if I remember correctly. We loved it.

Plus, the service was perfect! Will go here again when we return to SF.

“The calamari was excellent”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Recommended by the bartender at Rex. Portion to price ratio isn't great but the kitchen didn't disappoint. The list of wines by the glass was international and creative. The ambience was adequate.

“Excellent All Around”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I love this restaurant - the service is impeccable and the food is fantastic. It was also wonderful that they were able to accommodate my many allergies (gluten, soy, dairy, etc). The drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, were delicious. Great location, decent prices, and a great night out.

“Same great food!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We had trouble finding this place as they have changed their name since last year. We thought they had closed down! We stopped in one evening and would have to wait for a table, but decided to sit at one of the "community tables" which was fine with us. We loved the tuna tartare and brussel sprouts! Would eat here again!!!

“More hype than substance”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

E&O presents an interesting concept, and there are some interesting and unique flavors of Asia- that is undeniable. But value? Terribly small portions at high prices. Trendy? Perhaps, but the trendiness of pitch dark dining areas doesn't do much for me or my family. Wine list is interesting, as are the specialty cocktails. Our server seemed smart and knowledgable, and kept us abreast of our orders, but did not exude a lot of warmth. The front-of-house in general puts off an aire of lackluster attitude and concern for its customers as well. They do churn through a large volume, and keeping up with the flow seems the main priority, not the satisfaction of any particular customer. To be honest, we had a fantasticly tasty meal at PF Changs the next day, and saw quite a contrast in customer service and value. This place is the definition of Average.
