My wife and I were staying in the area and we're delighted to find this place through Trip Advisor. The host was a charming man, the ambience very relaxing and the menu very reasonable with great selections. We had the added bonus of a musician who played choices on guitar or saxophone at a mellow volume. We actually went there... More

My sister had recommended Evedar's to me, so I took my parents there for lunch. They both had the potato and leek soup, which was excellent. I had the chili with homemade corn bread, which was yummy and really filling - good for a pretty miserable wet winter's day. The staff were very helpful at what was a quiet time... More

We really enjoyed ourselves tonight. My girlfriend had the Stuffed chicken breast and I had to Peppercorn steak, we started with a Caesar salad and red wine. Lynne had the Shiraz from BC and I had the Shiraz/Merlot from Australia. Both were good. Robert K and his wife, Margaret were fun, taking requests for over 300 song titles with Guitar,... More

Just finished a bowl of amazing chili , with cornbread. Perfect on a winter's day. Staff are so friendly and accommodating every time we come - which is probably why it's our go- to place for lunch. Yum!!!!

Order and pay at the counter, food delivered to table. We chose soup and sandwiches. The filling was plentiful, bread fresh and served with a very small but delicious cup of soup. Comfortable and clean. Service was quick and about $38 for three meals.

This place is a complete GEM. Beautiful ambiance, and live acoustic music, not overwelming the room. Everything done well! The color, romantic vibe, great decor. We had Farin serving us, she was awesome, attentive, and great timing. The food is excellent. Mushroom caps to die for and great wine and food selections. We are thrilled to find a new gem... More

Went for lunch with friends for the first time. We had been in before but just for coffee. The menu was okay and the food arrived promptly. My friend ordered a Panini and instead received a sandwich. I twice asked the same girl for coffee refills , which never came. I went to the front counter and asked again about... More

After a rather scathing review several months ago, to which the owners responded immediately to apologize and invite me back, I finally decided to return with the same person I had been with previously. Mark, the owner, was wonderful, courteous and understanding. We were given a choice of seats where we could appreciate the live music. Menus in hand, water... More

I've only ever been here for dinner, but I hear lunch is fantastic. The food is extremely high quality, but with larger portions than most "fine dining" establishments and more reasonable prices. They have decent wine list and great service. Live music is kept at a reasonable volume to allow conversation.
