I enjoyed a fantastic meal at EVOO on a recent trip to Boston. The farm to table food was prepared very will, with quite a few unique dishes. The chinese box was particularly good. The serve and atmosphere were also outstanding.

I had not been to EVOO since they moved 4 years ago from their Somerville location to Kendall Square in Cambridge. I was a little worried that it might have declined in quality, but my worries were unfounded. We ordered 3 small plates and 3 dinner plates, and all of them were excellent - beautifully prepared and presented. The pollack... More

The country pate was nice. The jalapeño cornbread coleslaw was nice. The service was fine. But the rabbit empanada with apple salsa was amazing!!!

EVOO is a nice choice in this restaurant row area of Kendall Square. The décor is quiet and utilitarian, with the open kitchen in plain sight. Our waiter was friendly and responsive, so our experience was very comfortable. The wine list offers a nice selection of choices from multiple national and international vineyards. The menu identifies all the suppliers of... More

We had a really terrific dinner here recently with a large family group. Outside patio seating on a lovely evening set a wonderful stage for a fun night. And our server Dan was just great, anticipating our every request. The food was very good, starting with the bread basket chockablock with skinny, salty breadsticks and delicious bread to dip in...

We ordered corn on the cob , salads and chips to share, then each ordered a large or two small plates for a main. We all agreed this was too much food but wanted to try most of the menu-- there were six of us. Strongest dish-- the eggplant, weakest-- the steamed chicken,

We were visiting Boston and went on a quest to find a farm-to-table experience for dinner one night. We found it at EVOO. There were 11 of us and they graciously accommodated our huge party at the last minute. Everyone ordered something different and it was all delicious. Highly recommend!
