Location and contact

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

Such a wonderful night to enjoy some of the best cooked food I've ever had. 7 courses for the V day menu and my wife and I each ordered something different. Of 'course' we tried each other's dishes and honestly we both thought it was...More

With so many great restaurants in Portland, it's easy to miss a gem like Evo (I walked by the front door without seeing it!). Make a reservation, ask to be seated upstairs, and get ready for your taste buds to be made very happy! They...More

I like the place a lot especially upper level and enjoyed their food - mostly sampling different small plates and red wine. Lovely atmosphere. Would go again.

The food ordered was exceptional - and the menu had others that were equally tempting. Middle Eastern/Mediterranean flair prepared exceptionally well for being in Maine but would be good anywhere. Service is attentive without being overbearing. Definitely will try again very soon.

After a long drive, this meal was a wonderful end to a long day. Portions of the many courses sized correctly. Every morsel tasted very fresh. Just a delight in flavor and presentation.

I greatly enjoyed my first visit to Evo tonight. I decided to splurge on the tasting menu and was not disappointed. Sitting at the bar I was able to watch the chefs prepare course after course of beautiful, creative and delicious food. The service was...More
