Our meal at St. Eve's was very nice the flavors were excellent , and they do have some interesting dishes. It is a BYOB so that helps keep the cost in check. We loved the fig appetizer!!! The the herb chicken is one of the best.
The server was friendly and knowledgable. The food was very good and the presentation was very nice. This was my 4th visit to this restaurant and I've never been disappointed with the quality of the food or the service, but the portion size is quite small for the price.
Fantastic food and service at a friendly, sophisticated restaurant.
Great food, great service. What more can you ask for!
My wife and I were out with our neighbors for a Saturday night dinner. Based on a previous visit to St. Eves I wanted to share the great food and atmosphere and service with my neighbors. Happy to say they did not disappoint.
Food is very overpriced and the menu is very limited. Waitress was rude. 0/5.
First rate in every way. The menu is varied and intelligent. The preparations are well executed. Everything was delicious. Our group went home very happy.
They gave us a table for four even though it was just the two of us. It was nice to have the extra space. Service was good and I appreciated that the food being served was not rushed. Nice variety of options and the food was delicious.
Excellent experience as always! St Eve’s never disappoints.
A wonderful dining experience. Once you visit....you will want to comeback again soon. Great atmosphere. Tasty, more than ample dishes. Weeknights are relaxing and easy. A great local find..
Memorable food and service. Great value and BYOB! Even printed a Happy Anniversary menu for us.
Beautiful restaurant, charming. Unfortunately the food is disappointing. Too many ingredients/components in one dish. The swordfish was covered in an excessive amount of salty olive tapenade and placed on top of messy caponata. The parmigiana crusted chicken was anything but that. The desserts were very good.
The food is consistently good here. It was quiet as we sat outside.
This was the best dinner I have had since the last time I ate at St. Eve's. Sitting outside in their little courtyard was beautiful. The added touch of putting "Happy Birthday Diane" on the menu was so lovely and made my sister in law very happy.
Definitely a pleasant surprise and a great dining experience. Great food with even better service.
We had an incredible dessert- pina colada panna cotta. Wow. Different and delicious
Make sure you ask for the pricing of specials before you order there over-the-top expensive and not worth it
Food was excellent as always. We had the Swordfish and the Salmon entree and both were excellent. We sat outside for the first time and it was nice. It is a bit busy out there so if you want a slight less busy atmosphere I would sit inside.
What a night to dine al fresco and enjoy three delicious seafood dishes that enclosed a lobster and crab mousse with salad, soft shell crab tempura with refreshing setup Caesar and tomato salad, and crab crusted codfish. We managed to save a little room for berry pavlova meringue tart. Service was great and gracious. And to be sat in the outside corner enjoying the sunset at this little outside dining gem...not to say the inside is beautiful too along with tonight dishes we sampled. Go make reservations here...everyone was happy this Sunday evening. Thanks again.
I was dining with a friend, who implored me NOT to say anything to the server. Personally, I always feel it is better to say something when you are having the bad experience, and it should be said directly to those responsible. But, friendships need to be valued and nurtured, so I said nothing.
With that said, I'm one who relies on Open Table with all its reviews. St. Eve's, as you can see, has wonderful reviews. 4.7 stars! I was terribly misled, and since I do not want any other member to be so misled, here is my honest review.
The service was very good, yes! Our server was personable and very professional. And the décor of St. Eve's was cozy and inviting, yes! And don't most of us appreciate a lovely BYOB dining spot? Unfortunately, that is where it stopped. Sadly, and surprisingly considering the great reviews, the FOOD was NOT GOOD. Not enjoyable at all. I wish I could think of something more creative to describe our meals, but I think "not good" and "not enjoyable" are sufficient.
You may read this and think "well, every place can have an off night". And I would agree, except this was my 2nd time dining at St. Eve's. I dined for the first time in June 2019, and thought that was the "off" night. I can honestly say this experience was more disappointing. In the dining world, I think 2 strikes and you're out applies (serious foodies would only give 1 strike!) The service is important, and the décor too, but if the food is "not good" or "not enjoyable", then the restaurant is not worthy of 4.7 stars.
We keep going back to St. Eves for the delicious food and the great service
We always enjoy the friendly casual atmosphere of this restaurant, where we have been going for many years. The food is always good, sometimes imaginative, and well-priced.
Very pleasant, good menu choices, everything seems carefully prepared
Never disappoints! One of the most consistent restaurants in regards to food and service. Definitely a big favorite of mine!
We had not been to St. Eve’s in awhile, so we decided to go there with friends in a Saturday evening. It was nice to see the extraordinary standards have not changed. Our table enjoyed lobster ravioli, short ribs, salmon, swordfish and opah. We also indulged in perfederrols for dessert. Everything was wonderful!
I always have a great meal here. The food is outstanding and always had excellent service. I also like the ambiance.
It was our anniversary and everything was great
St. Eve’s is one of our favorites. My husband and I have never been disappointed in the food or service.
Excellent food and service. Not a huge menu, but something for everyone.
Great experience for celebrating my husband's birthday. Mussels were REALLY good, we asked for extra bread for dipping into the yummy sauce and got it. For dinner I got a single soft shell crab, which was excellent, crisp but not crunchy, just right..... My husband got the short ribs, probably more of a fall or winter meal, but he enjoyed it very much, sides were good with that, carrots, mashed potatoes and a lovely sauce.
We were happy with the service, the meal and the noise level (but it was not a full house, which would feel cramped I think)
Good meal $100 with tip, BYOB
The food is always top notch and consistency is very hard to maintain in the food world. Bravo to St Eve’s
We had the filet mignon ravioli as an appetizer, and the Hangar steak and lobster ravioli for our entrees and everything was absolutely delicious. Our waiter was fantastic and we didn't realize how late it had gotten, and no one even gave us a hint that they were closing and we needed to leave, which we felt bad about, so all around great service and lovely people.
St. Eve's is consistently good. The Pecan Chicken is my personal favorite!
The food was fantastic! Service was friendly and efficient and never intrusive. Will definitely be back.
We always have a wonderful experience at St Eves. Great service delicious food selections from apps to desserts
From the wonderful bread that appears to start the meal, the food at St. Eve's never disappoints. The menu changes seasonally, though regulars may recognize some of the restaurant's standards (e.g. mussels app, or pecan crusted chicken entree). The apps are often so good that I'll have 2 apps and call it a night. This week I chose the lobster & crab timbale (which was not exactly what I was expecting, but excellent), followed by a single soft shell crab, crispy tempura-style crust, served over Asian slaw. If there is a weak link in their food chain, it's the desserts. They're ok, but few standouts. Best are the Pavlova & the cobblers which are usually featured as a special. Changing up the desserts would be a positive change, but otherwise, St. Eve's food & service always leaves us satisfied.
Food was delicious and made fresh. Perfect portions.
