Had a great evening at Eva after looking at other online reviews. Had to add an extra person to the reservation at the last minute and the restaurant, while busy, was able to accommodate us at two adjoining tables. Great atmosphere, cozy fire in back, love the small plates especially for groups - enjoyed every single one we tried. Recommend highly.
Went here the other night with my lady and the food was fantastic. We tried a bunch of different dishes and I can honestly say that every single one was quite tasty. The soy glaze that comes with Eva’s Steak was so good we ordered the flatbread for the sole purpose of mopping it up. I loved the crispy potatoes and dill in the Pork Cabbage Roll dish. And the Gnochhi was fabulous – pillowy soft with an amazing cream sauce.
The Brussel Sprouts and Charred Beets were very good too, although perhaps the least exciting of the things we tried. But the goat cheese that came with the beets was quite pleasant. We also enjoyed the Fried Trout dish, which was nice and crispy on one side yet flaky and moist on the other. As for dessert, we went with the Warm Chocolate Cake and the Candied Corn Bread, and although I enjoyed both, I though the chewiness of the Candied Corn Bread mixed with cream was the standout.
One thing I really like about this place is that there are so many items on the menu that look/sound good. You can go time and time again, mixing tried-and-true favorites with items that you haven’t tried for a unique experience every time. Lastly, I enjoy this place a lot more at night than during the day. Not because the food is any different, mind you, but the space itself just seems a lot more cozy and warm. I already can’t wait to go back.
Went here for a friend’s 30th bday dinner with a party of 5. We were all initially stoked to try this place as the menu had our mouths watering. The excitement quickly left. Our food was tolerable but not delicious and our drinks were unbearable. We ordered 12-15 small plates which was sufficiennt enough for a light dinner for our group (perhaps it wouldn’ have been enough if we had enjoyed the food though). The drinks all had very interesting tastes. Smokey, sour, strange. We passed around our drinks hoping out of our group someone would like them butnto no avail. It was so bad I politely asked if we could trade them in for ANY other drink so that at least it wouldn’t be a complete wash. The manager would not comp/switch any drinks. We grabbed our checks and went directly to Whiskey Street and Maxwells to save the night. :)
Food was decent, but did not wow us like we had hoped. One starter was okay, the other better, and one small plate was very bland while the other was very tasty, but had so many different flavors going on it was hard to decide what was going on with the dish. The server described the petite beef as "like a filet mignon" but it was definitely just simple flank steak when it arrived. A nice flank steak, but far from filet! We recommend Francks and other places in SLC for better food. We loved the ambiance and our server was great!
Great food and the server helped with surprising my cousin on her birthday meal by putting a candle on the dessert we ordered!
I have always heard great things about this restaurant so I finally went. The food was delicious plus there were so many different options. We had a very wonderful time and experience.
Every item we had was utterly plate licking fabulous! I could have eaten a bucket of fired cauliflower! The dessert - upside caramel corn cake was beyond words incredible. Divine drinks too. Can't wait to go back.
We had a group of 5 so we got to try a LOT of the small dishes, and they were all terrific, really good. Interesting options, and absolutely delicious.
Food was very delicious! Love that my friend could order several small plates and share them. We loved every dish and our waitress was very friendly but not overbearing.
This was the second time I have enjoyed Eva’s. The food is crazy good! So flavorful and beautiful presentation. My main complaint tho is the very loud music!! Sitting close to others we literally had to shout to one another over the loud music.
But that will not keep me from coming back! Fantastic !!
We got the cauliflower, asparagus, shrimp and hominy, mushroom and truffle pizza, and the trout. The cauliflower, pizza, and trout were our favorites. We wouldn't order the asparagus or shrimp dish again...not that they were bad, just not stand outs. Overall, it was a very nice meal and something a little different, but still familiar.
Too small of plates. I paid 15 bucks for two or three bites of Steak, felt robbed. Very disappointing! ONE TIME experience for sure! Date Night Fail. Thanks Eva.....NOT!!!!
Great food and service. Gnocchi was the bomb!! Had the duck and it was amazing.
Very noisy and hard to have a conversation. But delicious food and great service.
2nd time and just as good as the first
Brought foodie-friends visiting from Seattle. They were blown away. We were like “yeah, that’s right, this is Salt Lake”. We couldn’t have been more proud.
First time visit to Eva and sat in the back enclosed patio. Great ambiance with the fire going, and quiet area. Friendly service and delicious small plates. Had the brussels sprouts, beets and split the pear & walnut pizza...all very tasty!
Went here for our anniversary. We were seated so close to two other couples that we felt bad when we spoke because it seemed like we interrupted their conversations. We had to totally lift up and move our table when I needed to get out to go to the restroom. Food was outstanding, portions were small, service was fine. It just wasn't the quiet intimate evening we were hoping for.
Second time at Eva. Food is excellent, service is fair, but the freezing cold room in the back is unacceptable. The floor is clearly suited to an exterior dwelling and needs a carpet or proper heating prior to being used for seating.
They have fun menu , interesting twist on basic dishes. Great bits. We had reservations, they took us right on time. We have been several times, always been up to our expectations.
The gnocchi was delightful and the brussel sprouts were a pleasant surprise. Wonderful food in a darling place
Wonderful experience ! The food was delicious and the service fantastic. A great pre-show option in downtown Salt Lake. Will be back soon.
The food was excellent as always, the service was fantastic and fast. I love this little restaurant and will be back many more times!
Food and service were, as usual, very good. However the recorded music they play is annoying as hell. Incredibly awful. You cannot have a conversation, “get ‘em in, and get ‘em out” as fast as possible.
Great food, love the small plates, reasonable prices. Good wine and will definitely go back!
The 2 dishes we had of 4 ordered were good, but our server had to have forgotten to submit the orders to the kitchen. We arrived at 6:30 PM right before a big rush and one dish was out within 5 minutes. But at one hour and 15 minutes later we had to get to the Billy Joel concert at 8 and the other two dishes were still in cue to be fired! In the mean time, other people who had been sat well after hour arrival were getting orders. The food was very good, but we fell victim to a lost order, which as a former server, happens now and then. Unfortunately I didn't get dinner that night, just a few bites of more of an appetizer portion.
I would have given Food and Overall Value six stars if I could have. Please open a restaurant in Palm Springs, California!
The Fig & Pig Pizza was really delicious. I’m a sucker for a good cheese plate as well.
The menu selection is quite broad and offers delicious choices for about anyone's pallet. The portions are fair size for Tapa's style dining. The servers were very attentive and friendly. This is a good place for a small meal before a show or ballgame. We will be back.
This place is wonderful! Great food and service. Amazing cocktails. You can’t go wrong here.
