"I had the lobster waffle, which was just ok--too much fried dough not enough of the lobster taste, but the fries were really great. My friend had steak, which was succulent. B Too does its dessert quite well. The World Cup matches were on, and we enjoyed how distracted all the wait staff seem to be, that night, torn between love of soccer and their jobs. It made the place homey feeling."

"It's been a year since we last visited Ceiba, and this return visit confirmed our initial impression that the food is good here, if not expensive, but the entire dining experience is not particularly special. The hostess was not that friendly or attentive at the door. The waiter provided very good service, but the food server oddly brought on our evidently quite hot plates without first removing the existing plates in front of us. So, as he stood over us looking like he was about to drop our hot entrees, he signaled that we should remove our own plates to allow him to put the plates down. That seemed like poor training. My shrimp on a sugar cane was pretty good, but the saffron rice we ordered on the side was undercooked."

The restaurant features three distinct floors, with the first floor featuring a fun, cocktail-driven 20-seat bar. Three unusual “bump out” sections of the bar make it possible to seat a party of four, not side by side, but rather at a “conversation enabling” semi-circle. The bar area has additional table seating for 40 guests. The second-floor dining room features dramatic royal blue floor-to-ceiling curtains, exposed terra cotta blockwork, and tables of tiger-striped granite and reclaimed ancient Chinese elm. Taking advantage of its high roof line, Eventide also features a roof-level dining terrace, which boasts views of Georgetown and several monuments. The rooftops seating is on a "FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE" basis and only has table seating for 2-4 guests at each table. It is open each year from approximately May 1 to October 15, depending on the weather.

"My friends and I had a great time at Eventide. All of our dishes were good: the fried chicken, the steak, and the lobster roll. I like the fact that Eventide seems to change its menu often, so I am always looking forward to trying new dishes. The quiet and elegant ambiance in the dining room allows us to have good conversations without straining to be heard, while the bar downstairs and the rooftop area allow for more lively atmosphere. This is a perfect summer spot."
