My wife and I were in the area for an event, and on a very snowy night made reservations using Open Table and got in about two hours before closing on a Saturday. We were so happy with our meals and service we came back the next morning for breakfast.
When we arrived we made mistake in parking. The restaurant is at the corner of Chandler and Dewey Streets, and we thought the front of the building was where all the parking was (Chandler St side), but there's a lot in the rear on Dewey Street with what looks like more space. You know you are in the right place when you see "Living Earth Natural Food Supermarket" which is in the same building as EVO. DO NOT GO BY THE GOOGLE IMAGE you will find if you Google the address -- it is before renovations and will make you wonder if you got the right place.
We were greeted promptly upon entering, and seated within seconds, both times we were there. The service was excellent, and the servers seem to have the right attitude: make this the best meal you will have that day.
For dinner, my wife and I had a chicken and a stir-fry dish, respectively. The stir fry was just delicious, though the vegetables were undercooked (the cabbage was still a bit chewy). But the flavors were there. When we got our check, our waitress said, "until we meet again... take care" which my wife and I thought was the best thing waitstaff ever said to us in decades, which got us into thinking about coming back for breakfast. And so we did.
We were the first to come in the next morning as we had to get to the event early. We were promptly seated, the waiter said he had nice fresh, hot coffee for us ready if we wanted it, and in seconds it was in our hands. We both had the Italian bread french toast with bacon, and it was very fresh and delicious. Service was similarly excellent.
If you like to find those "mom and pop" local jewels that are bravely looking to make a name for themselves, this is a "must try." EVO impressed us both with their service and with the freshness/flavor of their offerings. When we come back to Worcester, we are definitely coming back to EVO.
