    Many herbs and some vegetables are grown in the restaurant's own garden; the front desk also has a list of recommended farmers’ markets in the area. Via Read more

    Love their tasting menu - you can't go wrong with this and their wine pairing (5, 7 or 9 courses) for a big date night out. I'd recommend the 7, as with bread and amuse bouche it is a lot of food!

    The corned beef and cabbage sandwich they do for St. Patrick's Day is phenomenal. The rockfish, Irish smoked salmon, and cream cheese cake with blueberry sauce were also great.

    Highly recommend the Chef's surprise menu! For 7 courses, it's worth it if you're already considering the tasting menu. Chef's surprise menu is $125 per person while tasting menu is $100.

    Tempura mushroom salad (off menu-item): "I spoke to the waiter and we created a special vegan dish. [They modified an existing salad...]" --Sheila Johnson (NVM's January 2013 Eat This Now! issue)

    "Harissa brings spunk to a pork belly rillette, curled into the shape of a football, sitting on a fried sweet potato disk. Pork belly never tasted more like butter."

    Chef/owner Cathal Armstrong likes to keep things fresh, so this tasting room/bistro/lounge is a constantly evolving mash-up of his Dublin upbringing, French technique, and New World sensibility.

    Both bistro and formal dining room are culinary delights. Gnocchi is a masterpiece, and even tripe is high-end here, served with citrus zest and lamb sausage. Be sure to sample the fanciful cocktails.

    Grab the table by the fireplace if you can. The bitters and tonic are made in-house, and the sweet potato soup is a quintessential starter. For lunch, take advantage of the Lickety Split menu. Read more

    Food magazine snobs aren't the only folks who eat here. Try the "lickety split" lunch in the bar on weekdays, and just order whatever the specials are; they're always amazing.

    **** stars in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. (Tom recommends the sweet lobster poached in bacon fat and the sweet potato gnocchi.)

    Try the bar for their more reasonably priced lunch - choose from lots of good options, including wine & the famous birthday cake!

    I like it when they stay in their lane but the take on Filipino & Asian cuisine wasn't very well conceived

    Overrated and unimpressive. Restaurant Eve has done an excellent job with publicity and marketing and that is all. Continuously giving them a second, third, and fourth chance, I've learned my lesson.

    Restaurant Eve is several things at once: a tasting room, a more casual (yet still pricey) bistro and a bar. Order a cocktail from mixologist Todd Thrasher.

    Weekday lunch at the bar - the Lickity Split Lunch - is quite possibly the best deal in town.

    Overhyped. The sirloin was good. Had the tasting menu, and have to say that we weren't impressed. Great wine selection, friendly professional service.

    Horrible service at the bar here tonite. Our bartender was busy catering to 2 schmucks sitting at the bar who ordered 7 course meals. Seriously? When u pay $13 for cocktails u expect better treatment.
