Evo is a stylish, small restaurant on the street front of the Portland Hyatt. Everything on this menu is worth trying, flavors are intense, most plates are tapas sized. This is a pricier restaurant, more of a splurge for us, but one we’ll keep making...More

I am totally over watching someone prep dinner, and paying for the experience. Was happy to sit upstairs, but I get the vibe is to be downstairs. Chick pea french fries were tasty and different. Served hot and also quite filling. A bit salty. Falafel...More

Description
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.
