Food was abysmal - lunch of rubbery chicken paillard and tasteless overdone salmon. Salad dressing tasted strange. Lovely server - not her fault at all.

We were pleasantly greeted on a busy holiday Saturday. Our party of 6 had diverse delicious dishes over the course of ~2 wonderful hours. The beet salad and goat cheese stuffed bacon wrapped fig salads were tops as appetizers though our son thought the spring rolls were the best. The duck entree was sublime, the short rib raviolis scrumptious, the Flintstones sized lamb shank was fork tender and melted in the mouth, and the fish dishes were tasty too! The ice cream cookies and apple crisps were fab finishers for the meal. Of course, St. Eve’s is a byo and since the food here is so divine we paired the food with top bottles from our cellar. Chef Christianson- thank you for a wonderful evening!

We have been to St Eve's a number of times and this visit did not disappoint. The oyster special was one of the best oyster dishes I think we've ever had - oysters with salmon a seaweed salad and mignonette. It was amazing! Our main courses of salmon and tuna were both cooked perfectly. We opted for dessert and coffee to round out a wonderful dinner. Our server Kane was very good as well - friendly and attentive. We will of course be back again soon!!

This was our second time at St. Eve's, and although the food was good, it was extremely over priced and the restaurant was very noisy. It was difficult to hold a conversation. The presentation of the food is nice, but definitely not worth the money. There are many other restaurants with the same ambiance and quality for a lot less.

Our friends got together to celebrate one of the girls’s birthday. The greeter welcomed us warmly & asked if we would like to check our coats. Our server promptly came over to introduce herself and asked if she could get us some water, tap or bottle. She gave us plenty of time to look over the menu & he went over the specials. The four of us shared 2 appetizers , the Thai egg rolls & salad & the figs stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in bacon over a very light salad. Both were de-lish! Our four entrees were very good. I had the butternut squash ravioli which was good but the root veggies & Brussel sprouts in the dish were a little too hard.
They shared the Pavlova for dessert & said it was very good. Overall, we would definitely go back again & highly recommend it. (Even though it was my 5th time there.)

All4 people had different dishes and each of us loved what we had. The waiter was helpful and asked the chef to make a house salad with blue cheese. It was exactly what he wanted. Desserts were very good as well. Will definitely come back.

I like St Eve atmosphere and the food is good. One comment I would make however is they need to change the menu more regularly. It seems to be the same dishes all year round
Other than that, nice place for sure

Once again, we had a terrific meal. We reserved via Open Table and they read the comments closely and were very accommodating and noted our anniversary. I had the venison special and it was great. My wife ordered the 5 spice salmon off the regular menu and it was equally as good. Their service is top-notch and well-paced. I booked another reservation on the way out the door as this is becoming our go-to place for special occasions.

I’ve dined here several time and every single time the meat (regardless of type of meat) has been over cooked and dry. The same held true last night when I ordered the duck breads medium rare. It was beyond medium. Very disappointed. The service and atmosphere is great but the don’t know how to cook meat dishes. I’ve had pork and beef there as well. Same result.

Food was unique and outstanding. Service was flawless as dishes were cleared promptly but not rushed.

Seating arrangements were a little awkward as we were seated against a wall in between 2 other couples in an otherwise empty room. The room filled up an hour later but it clearly made the couple to our left uncomfortable. The filet ravioli was outstanding. All the dishes came out hot and clearly were not under the lamp waiting. Can't wait to go back.

Unfortunately the food was fair and the service was bordering rude. We always had a decent meal here and went back because it is a beautiful restaurant. Not sure it’s worth the price just for the atmosphere.

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.
