“One of the best learning and eating experiences.....”
Reviewed 11 December 2011

EVOO ROCKS! It is a small intimate learning/dining restaurant/school. Bob and Lenore are truly wonderful chef's and teachers. Their knowledge and expertise in preparing delicious meals while teaching short cuts, brilliant ideas, hints/tips for cooking is second to none. And, all the while preparing scrumptious food is a delectable experience that will want you to return often. Bob and Lenore are such a team, as well as their kitchen staff. They are so well organized, and the setting is friendly and welcoming. They prepare 3 main courses paired with wines, and then to top it off with a dessert you will never forget. It is my third experience and my husband's second one. He loves it. We took friends with us this time, and they too, were "wowed away" You will be, too. DO NOT miss this wonderful opportunity to have a heavenly 4 course meal in the most fascinating venues!

“The Best Meal (and Show) on the Oregon Coast--Bar None”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

Bob Neroni and partner Lenore Emery have the most amazing business model: they entertain you with their wit and joie de vivre, teach you some amazing cooking techniques, and ply you with four courses of heavenly food and wine. The "Dinner Show" is an evening you will never forget! Don't worry --no participation required at this cooking "school." A small intimate group of 20-24 guests, all seated comforrtably around the prep area and stove, watch Bob and Lenore and staff turn out spectacularly beautiful but even more mouthwateringly delicious meals. Four courses! And these are not "small plates" so make sure you starve yourself the entire day. The ingredients are local and fresh---their trademark. Their style of cooking is eclectic and varied....there is not one iota of boring in what they serve. You will experience combinations you never dreamed of, and they all work! At the same time, the food is not precious. There is no piling of things upon things just to create little towers of miniature ingredients. The food is hearty, bending toward Bob's Italian and Jewish roots. For those with food allergies, unique taste requirements, or other special needs, they are extremely creative in offering the same wonderful, rich food experience as their planned plates. I swore I would never eat oysters, lamb or sweetbreads (and don't get me wrong, these are not staples on the EVOO menu) but when they have been prepared by Bob and Lenore, I invariably love them. The four courses come with three wines and some delicions coffee. When you consider that the price includes three entrees, one desssert, three wines and gratuities, it is not only the best food on the Oregon Coast it is also the best bargian. OK, confession time, my partner and I have eaten at EVOO every single time we have visited out beach cottage in Cannon Beach, so we really qualify as regulars. But, as with all places we tend to habituate, this one really nurtures us, fills us, entertains us, and makes us feel redolent and alive when we leave. This is an experience not to miss. If you are within 45 miles of Cannon Beach (or even further), detour to EVOO. You will not be sorry.

“One of the best dining experiences. Period.”
Reviewed 13 October 2011

I've dined all over the U.S., Canada, and France and EVO at Cannon Beach was one of the most enjoyable and memorable dining experiences ever. I can't say enough about how wonderful Bob and Lenore's business is. Go there and you'll see, taste, smell, and ejoy for yourself. If you love good food this is YOUR PLACE.
