The place: Eva (website)

What we hoped for: slightly finer dining at a reasonable price.

What we had: 
Slow roasted tri-tip "bruschetta" and the fig and pig baker's pie
For dessert: doughnut holes and banana cake

Our friends tried Eva's pie and shrimp and grits

The Pros: Truly tasty food and unique flavors on each dish.  Friendly staff.  Felt like a nicer restaurant than our usual spots.The Cons:  We know it's known for it's small plates, but we could have used some larger portions.  Fairly limited seating, so you probably want to get reservations if you're going at peak times.What to get:  It all was very good and you probably can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but the fig and pig baker's pie was fabulous.  It was the right combination of sweet and savory.  Against our general recommendations, splurge and get dessert.Rating (1-5 mo-mos, 1 being the worst, 5 being the best)Atmosphere: 4 mo-mos: Very nice, charming restaurant.  It's a little tight but cozy.Price: 2 mo-mos: It was a good price for upscale food, but more expensive than we generally like to pay.Food: 4 mo-mos: It really was very good.  Very flavorful, nice presentation.
Will we be back? Yes.  Interested in trying the lunch menu.
