EVOO report

missL | Sep 26, 2004 10:05 PM

Tried EVOO for the first time Friday night... and unfortunately it was not what I hoped.

We went there at 7:30 - 8:00 and the place was at 25% capacity, which suprised me.

I got the softshell crab special entree, and while it was delicious, even after a salad I was left hungry. The proportion was tiny and there was nothing filling about it. It was 2 pretty small crabs atop a very good "gazpacho", as they called it. But for two tiny crabs in a vegetable sauce, I was left disappointed. I wish they had put a starch in with it, which would have made me feel a lot better at dropping $25 for the plate. Maybe even some orzo mixed in, a few croutons or something, anything!!

My date got the filet, which he liked a lot, the mashed potatoes were excellent and the presentation was lovely.

The service was okay, but since it was so dead in there, they were all sort-of congregating close to our table, which was awkward.

Again, the food was excellent, great presentation, but I expected to leave full and satisfied. So we hopped into Central Square afterwards and got a slice at Hi-Fi Pizza!!! ha! Not kidding!
