What a beautifully put together meal. Everything was simply gorgeous to look at and it tasted delicious too. Would definitely recommend. It's also in a very unique setting. Would love to return.

Waking in the aroma is wonderful. Warm and pleasant surroundings. But...ordered a bloody mary - no can do - no tomatoes to make it fresh? Come on. No juice or mix? Service was okay but rather a bit slow. The starters that came to the table - not ours. But when the food et al did come, after a wait,... More

We stopped in and had lunch at the bar. The food is always good, but on the pricier side. The bar is filled with regular clients who attend lunch there virtually every day! Seriously! This makes for interesting conversation if you just sit back and listen to all the local chatter. The atmosphere is good and the bar tenders are... More

Went to this restaurant at lunch, and was initially surprised by the lack of menu choices on the menu. However, ordered the 3 course "price fixe" meal, which was an excellent value (based upon the ala carte prices). The food exceeded my expectations in every way! Was able to "taste" the love put into all courses-everything fresh and delicious. Service... More

Unfortunately this meal was below par on all levels. There was a distinct and unpleasant smell when we entered the restaurant. After ordering drinks I again had an unpleasant experience with the Peruvian drink which smelled off putting. As a group, we ordered the Asian tasting menu and ended up with first course that was a slap of full pork... More

This is a top notch restaurant and Alexandria folk should nurture the amazing cooking of the chef and the attentiveness of the staff. We had a marvellous five course tasting menu with selected wine to accompany the food. Wonderful, simply wonderful. Worth travelling from the UK for!

This is a rating of eating lunch in the bar, from its menu. I had an outstanding meal in the restaurant, but that was over a year ago. You can have fixed price two or three item lunches, at $15 or $28. The food was great, ranging from excellent sandwiches to a "Korean" boulaibasse (sorry for the spelling). If you... More

My husband and I came to Restaurant Eve for our 10 year anniversary. We were hopeful that this would be a wonderful restaurant--and took a tour of it before deciding that that's where we'd eat. There are so many wonderful restaurants in Alexandria that we wanted to make sure it was a special one. However, we were sorely disappointed. Our... More

Description
Restaurant Eve has one intention: to bring everything together in perfect harmony-ingredients, cooking techniques, presentation, and that ephemeral, indescribable characteristic that we call soulfulness. We purchase from farms that share our values of quality and sustainability, and showcase the best hand-fed, farm-raised, organically grown bounty Virginia and the surrounding countryside have to offer. Herbs and fruits are gathered from our own garden and everything on our menu has a story, every ingredient is special. From the various offerings of house-made products (which include 7-9 various breads baked daily and artisanal cheeses); to the roster of craft cocktails, by cocktail authority Todd Thrasher; to our carefully chosen ingredients, everything signals a seriousness and reverence for the farmers, crafters, and all the culinary professionals who wish to bring you beautiful food. Restaurant Eve, named after the husband and wife duo's first child, is located in Old Town, Alexandria, listed by many travel sites as one of the most romantic towns in America, 10 minutes from Washington DC, Restaurant Eve is housed in a late 1800's historic warehouse that has been converted into a charming and sophisticated destination. The cobblestone path leading to the restaurant's entrance is lined with candles that set the tone of what is to come. Inside, the space is simultaneously stylish, cozy and refined-a place where special occasions are fondly remembered.
