EVOO DINING, where food is always in season!

Picture yourself among the guests gathered around the chefs OPEN kitchen-bar as you watch them prepare three entrees paired with three wines, followed by a great dessert. Imagine a lively discussion about food and wine as you savor each plate. In the end, you leave satisfied wondering what you’ll do first—make some of the many new recipes at home, or start planning your return to enjoy another EVOO DINING experience.

In addition, our mission has always been to inspire our guests to cook with whole foods in their own kitchens. We teach whole foods cooking or cooking from scratch, because when eating what you’ve cooked yourself increases your satisfaction and often makes everything taste better.  We are strong proponents of education and once you have fostered the enjoyment of cooking, you never stop learning. Our chefs will discuss how to shop for quality ingredients that are sustainable, local and in season as much as possible, all for best results!  Chefs touch on nutrition, food safety issues, and suggestions for pairing wines. And most of all, our wish has always been to inspire guests to gather with friends and family around their tables at home as we do here at EVOO.

For questions please see the FAQ section on the right hand side of this page. For our changing menus, cookbook, and to keep up with what’s happening at EVOO, we recommend you sign into our ENCORE CLUB  !  The only requirement is that you must first attend one of our dining experiences! Once in, you may opt-out at any time.

Our culinary gift shop and chef HOURS vary during the year. CURRENTLY the chef is in and the gift shop is open 10:30 am to 4:30 pm, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat. and Sun, and always after enjoying a meal with us.

And if you cannot find what you are looking for, or need more information, we welcome your phone calls. 503-436-8555.

TO RESERVE, call EVOO and speak with our representative to ensure availability and to purchase show ticket(s).

Frequently Asked Questions

IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUY A GIFT CERTIFICATE?

YES!  During November and December is the only time we offer this GIFT CERTIFICATE promotion for your holiday gifting. Our gift certificates are only good in the new year.  They can only be redeemed toward Dinner Shows, cooking classes or other experiences, and not redeemable for cash or our store merchandise.  They come in increments of $50, $100, 150 to $300.  Call 503-436-8555 to purchase in time for the holidays! We are always grateful when our guests want to share an EVOO experience.  HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Are you a restaurant?

YES! EVOO offers unique recreational dining experiences where our chefs are creating your meal in our open kitchen. Occasional cooking classes are also available, and at such experiences, participants are treated to a full meal.

Why must I pay in advance for reservations at EVOO?

Each of our experiences are price fixed and our ingredient purchases are precise for the number of guests and the menu we are making.  In addition we buy diet accommodations for individuals who have dietary requirements.  Chef carefully searches for the freshest ingredients from our local farmers, fishers, and ranchers. For some dates we keep a wait list, but a no-show on the night of a reservation doesn't give us enough time to fill in with a waitlisted guest. We appreciate our guest's understanding that this is a necessary, reasonable and sustainable practice.

Is tip included?

Service tips are not included in our dinner pricing. If so inclined your monetary recognition of their professional performance is always appreciated. You may leave cash at the table or after the show on a credit card.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you have to cancel for any reason you may sell your "tickets" or give them away. We do not issue refunds for cancellations. We do understand that emergencies occur. If you cannot transfer ownership to someone else, please let us know and we will try to sell your tickets on your behalf. If we do, you may register your attendance on another date, depending upon availability, and such reservations cannot be extended a second time.

Can you recommend lodging?

We recommend you secure lodging before you reserve your place at our events,  just in the rare circumstance you do not find lodging for the date you desire. If you need help with lodging you may go to these websites: Cannon Beach Vacation Rentals for a Cannon Beach bungalow Chamber of Commerce website  at www.cannonbeach.org  

Guide to Cannon Beach at www.cannon-beach.net

           

May we bring our own wine to a dinner or lunch?

At most of our dining experiences, the wine is already paired to what is being served. The discussion around the pairings can be a large part of the experience.  We have many food friendly wines in our store that can be purchased for a la carte menus and other experiences such as our POP-UP restaurants that do not include beverages in the price.  Chef Bob always gives a recommendation for wines that match all of these menus. Beer is also available as are soft natural beverages. And a bonus, beverages in our collection are priced at shelf prices, not wine-list prices.

Why am I asked to give you my food allergies and diet restrictions?

With advance notice, we can make substitutions and alternatives for most common food allergies (i.e. celiac, tree nuts, soy, dairy, etc.); as well as conscientious self-imposed restrictions such as vegetarian, pescatarian, keto, no pork, etc. Creating these options becomes part of the experience because for everyone attending, we make the substitutions and changes manageable and simple, which reinforces our commitment to "replace not eliminate." In fact, many guests find it interesting how simply adjustments can be made when starting with whole foods and how very close to the original menu item we can make it. We rarely decline diet restrictions when diet requests are made in advance. That said, all substitutions and alternatives are at the discretion of the chefs. In rare instances, our chefs will call a guest directly before agreeing to accommodate his/her allergies/restrictions.

What about seating? Should I come early for a good seat?

Please plan to come 15 minutes before the posted time. For most occasions, we create a seating chart based on the number and size of the parties that purchase seats at our table for lunch and dinner. Since we have a small intimate space, we can only fit a certain number of people into each one of our dinners for best results. Therefore, we are unable to give preferential seating to any party or guest based on their preferences. If there is a special need such as wheel chair, hearing or sight impairment, we will make exceptions, of course. We have many requests for bar seating as well as the high tables behind the bar.  We believe all seats are good seats! NOTE: Parties greater than six often must be split up in deference to our other guests attending. We recommend parties greater than ten reserve the entire date for their private party.  If this is not possible, we may need to limit the size of your group to ten or less and we will not seat such groups together to ensure our remaining guests feel equal at the event.  We also appreciate when large groups reserve their private celebratory actions, such as gift giving until dinner is over.

What about private events?

When groups want a private event, they are required to purchase a minimum of 18-22 seats, depending upon day of the week and time of year. Groups of over 10 must acquire the date of their choice as a private party in most cases, and only if the date of their choice is still available. If their party is less than minimum, the cost to become private is still for the minimum number of  guests. All private events include an additional 18-20% service fee, and if the menu is customized and/or personalized, additional fees may apply. Please call our reservationist (503-436-8555) to make sure the date you want is available. Our chefs, personally, will take it from there.  

What other activities do you recommend in Cannon Beach?

Of course, shopping the many quaint shops lining the main street of town is always a favorite activity when in Cannon Beach. Also midtown supports more galleries and shops like Center Diamond.  We also like the History Center, and the Friends of Haystack who support the city's Haystack Awareness program, so be sure to check them out. ` Here are a few of the many places we enjoy:
  1. CB Theatre Always a treat for a very reasonable price!
  2. Galleries of Primary Elements, Northwest By Northwest, Jeffrey Hull Gallery, Ice Fire Glassworks and many more are available almost every day, making our town one of the best art destinations in the US.
  3. NW Women's Surf Camps If you want to learn this invigorating sport, start here. Lexie brings such passion to the art of surfing that you leave with much more than a great day at the beach.
  4. For nostalgic history, follow the S-curves on Hemlock Street south to end of our little town, called Tolovana Park. Here you find "The Lost Art of Nursing Museum." Open Saturdays 1-4 pm, and by appointment; you are guided by Melodie, nurse, proprietor, and curator of this historic, fun and uplifting place.
`
`And of course if you go to our Chamber of Commerce website you will see lots more activities and things to do in the broader area. A complete guide to CB activities with great photos can be found at Cannon-Beach.net.
