After a rather scathing review several months ago, to which the owners responded immediately to apologize and invite me back, I finally decided to return with the same person I had been with previously. Mark, the owner, was wonderful, courteous and understanding. We were given a choice of seats where we could appreciate the live music. Menus in hand, water... More

I've only ever been here for dinner, but I hear lunch is fantastic. The food is extremely high quality, but with larger portions than most "fine dining" establishments and more reasonable prices. They have decent wine list and great service. Live music is kept at a reasonable volume to allow conversation.

We saw this a few times and went on a coffee date in the evening (7pm) to find a stylish restaurant. The meals were $20-$25 but absolutely delicious! I had lamb he had stuffed pork and we were pleased with everythig!

This tucked away Bistro has a fresh menu with a great choice of daily specials. Evenings you can enjoy live music.

We live a couple of blocks from Evedar's Bistro and thought to check it out as we heard that it was great for couples. The server was the owner so the service was spectacular. The crab cakes were incredibly tasty and I loved my halibut. Everything was done with so much care and attention. It truly was a romantic atmosphere... More

My daughter asked me how dinner was, here is my initial response. Think of a mountain. The top is brilliant, fabulous view, senses brought alive....then there is a mini avalanche, stops and goes, fine for a moment only to speed up until it brings you to a sudden jolt at the bottom of the mountain. Alive but dazed. Only the... More

Went there for lunch on a Saturday - surprisingly not too busy. You order at the counter, are given your drinks and then the food is brought to your table. Good selection of wraps, sandwiches, soups, salads, chili, etc. Menu on a small chalk board on one of the standing beams, other menu items located on the wall. Trying to... More

see my title... food is good but the service lacks so badly. It takes a while to get your food sometimes but the service is soooooo poor. All the time.

Have looked at this place from the outside many times and finally tried it---twice in one week. I was right away taken by the decor and layout. Very interesting. Staff makes you comfortable. Coffee is hot and most pleasing. Menu is posted but counter person is helpful if any questions need answering. Lunch was very tasty. Dinner a few evenings... More

We were surprised how large it was, very nice and elegant. Service was fine, slow to bring the bill, sort of forgot about us after the meals. The food looked very good on the menu, originally I wanted the brisket but it was unavailable. Unfortunately the food we ordered was very bland, I had the Cajun snapper and expected some... More
