Menu was limited and not a lot on the menu however I had tuna that was just lightly seared and was relish. Chick pea fries are amazing and would go back just for them, they are fabulous.

Incredible flavors. I highly recommend this restaurant with the friendly staff, excellent chef and great location. While small, it has large windows to look out to Portland, a nice bar and great food.

Excellent little restaurant. It was packed but we found seats facing the window. It has a lovely mezzanine floor. Food was outstanding! Really great. Drinks were really good as well. But food was great.

We love Portland, ME and many of its restaurants but this is a highlight! The chickpea fries were amazing, as was the heirloom tomatoes, the lobster with succotash and the tuna. Very intense flavors, which we loved. Nice service. Comfortable seating. Friendly staff. Creative decor.

Maine food. Bold flavors. With a chic, energetic vibe, Evo puts an unconventional twist on the traditional. Maine's micro seasons enable our Chefs to play. For you, this means they are always coming up with new dishes and creative ways of preparing the Maine foods you know and love. Immerse yourself in this experience at our open kitchen while the Chefs strive to wow your senses. Evo's dishes are meant to be shared. Modeled after mezze - groups of small dishes that are meant to be enjoyed together - you're encouraged to order a variety of shareable plates. If you're not into sharing, our menu has you covered too. Thanks to our farmers and purveyors, the food in our kitchen is the freshest you can get.
