A true star with stellar food and a meteorically good staff – While in town for an exhausting litigation, I and eight others were in great need of a relaxed dinner. Manager Molly was refreshingly accommodating for our large group, and the waitstaff was equally efficient and friendly. The food was spot on ... my salad was perfectly dressed, beef cooked to order, and strawberry rhubarb cobbler so good that I hated to share it. The dining room has the casual comfort that only works if the food is superb, which it is. Kudos to all at Evening Star Cafe and many thanks for delivering exactly the experience we all needed. I will absolutely return the next time I am in town.
Shining in Del Ray – Once I thought of the Evening Star for special events, now it feels everyday. The kitchen always offers up perfectly prepared selections, and the service is consistently friendly and conscientious. The bar in back is great for meeting up with friends for cocktails, though like the restaurant itself, it is often too small for the crowd it commands. And you'll go back as much for the kitchy decor as the great food.
