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.

“Overpriced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Very expensive and just not worth it even for a special occasion. I was for a new years dinner and the bill killed any romance it was supposed to of fostered.

“Excellenr”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

My husband took me here for my birthday-it was a real treat. We had a tasting menu with winepairing. It was very good-as it should be for the price. Small portions-perfect-and what a taste!This is a restaurant for when we want to celebrate. The overall experience was very good.

“If you can eat at only one restaurant in Old Town Alexandria, make it this one”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

If you care about price, eat at the bar.
The food is fresh, inventive, and delicious.
Trust the bartender and drink whatever they suggest.
If the clear Bloody Marys are being offered, drink one. They are amazing.

“Best Foie Gras ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Plan ahead to get a reservation or you will be disappointed. The entire dining experience was fabulous, but the Foie Gras was the best ever! Attentive service without being pretentious. Warm, inviting atmosphere. Definitely fit for a foodie and/or a special occasion!

“Wonderful Dining Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

This was our 5th visit to Eve and as usual the total experience was amazing; great service, wonderful food and drink, and a menu that always offers something new. But be forewarned, this restaurant doesn't come cheap. We had the 3 course meal along with a before dinner specialty drink and 2 glasses of wine each and our tab not including the tip was $250 - but was definitely worth it. We visit Eve once or twice a year for a special occasion and are never disappointed.
