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.

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.

I would like to start by saying I absolutely love St. Eve's. I have been there on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is always sensational - fresh and perfectly prepared. The issue this time was with the waitress - she had no personality, unfriendly and barely stopped at our table, which is so unlike any waiter or waitress I have ever had at St. Eve's. The other wait staff who came to our table were terrific though which sort of made up for the lead waitress. Maybe she was just having a bad day.....

The food was great. We ordered mussels with a delicious broth and asked for some bread for dipping and we were told they were out of bread (not true as we saw bread being delivered to other tables!). The service was very unfriendly and curt. We will not go back because of it.

We have been to St Eve’s many times but the past few experiences have left us just blah. We always book at least a week in advance, and usually request a particular area of the restaurant. They’ve been unable to accommodate that request the past few times for reasons that aren’t explained, despite tables in that exact area sitting empty the entire time we were there. I always order the same dish, which has been inconsistent our last few visits (either dry, lukewarm, inconsistent portioning, etc). Hopefully it was just a few “off” nights for them.

Food and service were very good. Some minor issues, such as tables are small and few beets in the "beet salad", but these did not deter from an overall very good experience.

We have been to St Eve’s many times and this was an unimpressive visit. The waitress seemed to be bored and uninspired. The meal was interesting but not served completely hot. If it was the first visit, I don’t know if I would be in a rush to go back. My expectations based upon previous experiences fell short

The food was exquisite! The portions were generous for such an upscale place! And looked beautiful on the plate. The staff was very attentive. (The only downside, if you want to call it that, is that I was not able to have a cocktail prior to my meal since it is a BYOB)

It had been awhile since I ate here, but needed a spot for Mother's Day and immediately thought of St. Eve's. No matter how many times I've come here, it is always consistently top-notch, and this experience was no different. Friendly, competent staff, great food, and they were more than accommodating when we had some last minute changes to the number in our party, which I know is difficult to do on a holiday.

St. Eve’s is a truly special restaurant. The food is always amazing. The service is attentive but never intrusive. The staff are always happy you’re there. It’s a true gem.

The only problem I ever have here is deciding what to order, because there are so many fabulous options.

This is one of the best places you’ll ever find to enjoy a tasty, beautifully-prepared meal.
