Tonight my boyfriend & I visited Evangeline's for a belated Valentines Day dinner. Our server, Carson, was great! We got an excellent bottle of Sauv. blanc, Brie as an app, salmon, the fall salad, and crab cakes as entrees to share. Topped of with the creme brûlée for dessert, which was pink & perfect- in honor of Valentines Day. Thank... More

Before my dinner last night (January 5, 2017), I counted Evangeline's as one of my favorite restaurants in Tuscaloosa and my number 1 choice for entertaining guest speakers at the University of Alabama. This romance for the past several years ended abruptly last night. First, we had to wait approximately ten minutes at the entrance before the hostess noticed us--the... More

Love this restaurant! We dine there quite often. Best in Tuscaloosa for quiet date nights, out-of-town guests, special occasions, or even a quick appetizer. The food is always excellent and very creative with a variety of selections! The service is fabulous!

This is a very nice local Italian place in Tuscaloosa. They do take reservations and the setting is nice inside. It is in a strip center across from Indian Hills CC in Northport and when you drive by on McFarland you would never notice it. It is beautiful inside and the service and food are wonderful. Probably one of the... More

There were seven of us that met for lunch. The waiter took our order about 10 minutes after we arrived but we did not get our food for another 50 minutes. We got our bill one hour after the food was served. It took another 15 minutes to get our change or credit card receipt. The food was good but... More

Homecoming Weekend in Tuscaloosa means restaurants will be crowded, although the bonfire on Friday night does make it possible to get into some restaurants for dinner that night that might otherwise not be possible. My wife and I were in town for Homecoming, but more important to us was the fact that Friday was also our 50th wedding anniversary -... More

My family visited back in March for sorority parents weekend and had a great time. We decided to return this past week after they moved me in for the first week of school. Evangeline's once again exceed our expectations. My father had a wonderful Halibut dish and my mom and I enjoyed the Parmesan catfish. SOOO good. The slaw on... More

Items were not prepared as stated in menu. "Roasted broccoli" was flavorless steamed mush. "Angel hair" pasta was a gummy spaghetti. Shrimp and grits- really more jambalaya with zucchini etc. We were really looking forward to dinner and appreciate good food- regardless of price. Over priced and not good!! We will not be returning.

My wife and I go here quite often and I have done a review a couple of years ago. I just figured it was time to once again say that Evangeline's never disappoints. The manager, David, is so friendly and so eager to please. Our usual server, Colby, is fantastic. The food is some if the best around and I... More

Everything about Evangeline's is spot on. The décor is charming, the wait staff is excellent and the food is wonderful. Megan served us and she was absolutely delightful. Took the best care of us.
