Garden of Eva is the Best! 6/9/2011

I have been a customer of Garden of Eva for over 15 years. I have ordered flowers for almost any occasion from professional to personal, I must say that Eva always delivers fresh, beautiful flowers and never disappoints. I have received flowers over the years from other florist that have not met the standards that Eva has. more

Valentine's Day Letdown 3/30/2011

I received the most pathetic ""arrangement"" I have ever seen - on Valentine's Day, no less. I know floral shops are busy today, but wow, the rose stems are cut down to 4"" and there is one little sprig of greenery in the ""bouquet."" I am actually embarrassed for me and my husband (we're newlyweds, to add salt to the wound) to have these on my desk. I wish I could post a picture. The card from Garden of Eva says ""It was a pleasure to give your order our personal attention."" Really? This makes me want to cry. Thanks for ruining my Valentine's Day, Garden of Eva. more

Best Florist for Lowest Price 10/24/2010

I highly recommend Eva as a wedding florist. My flowers were GORGEOUS, and she was far less expensive than anyone else I consulted with. In fact, her price was so much lower than others that I worried the quality of her flowers might be lower (another florist suggested to me that this must be the case given her prices) - but believe me, this was not an issue. She has very high quality flowers delivered for weddings. They were fresh and nicely arranged: I absolutely loved them. I told Eva what flowers I wanted, even giving her pictures of what I wanted in some cases, and she delivered exactly what I wanted at a low price. She also allowed me to make several changes along the way, and even converted a pin-on corsage into a wrist corsage on the spot at our wedding when someone changed their preference. Go to Eva for a great value and beautiful flowers. more

Minnesota's Best Florist - By FAR 1/18/2009

I have to say that my experience with the Garden of Eva was TREMENDOUS, and if you are ever needing a florist for ANY occasion, you would be crazy to go to anyone else! I was a walk-in, just looking to order some flowers for a friend, and it was Eva herself that waited on me. Not only did she help me hand tailor my order, but we got to talking about my upcoming wedding. She took the time to discuss floral options to consider, as the day is still very far away. She simultaneously helped several other customers, while continuing to check back with me as I perused her pictures from previous weddings. She is a GENIUS when it comes to arrangements, and through talking with her, she helped me make a decision for a bouquet! She offered me all this knowledge and support without expecting my business!! Her pricing for a complete wedding was WORLDS less then quotes I got from other florists for just the bridal party alone...plus, she pulled together an impromptu bouquet on the spot as an example for how it would look, and it was perfect!! So naturally, I booked her services for the wedding right then and there. Pros: Atmosphere, Service, Flower Quality, Overall Experience Cons: Parking was a little difficult more

STRESS FREE SERVICE!!!!! 3/9/2007

I recently helped my sister plan her wedding. I was stunned when I read the bad review posted by aschmidt, as the service we recieved was outstanding. When we called for an appointment, we were asked when it would be most convenient for us to come in. The person on the other end of the line was friendly, and curteous. My sister, my mother and myself all went to the consultation Eva met with us herself. My biggest complaint is we had to wait about 5 minutes while she finished up with another customer before she could sit down with us. Eva had excellent ideas and suggestions, and somehow managed to bring all three of us together, as my family members all had different ideas. To help us stay within our budget we decided to use many of our ceremony decorations at the reception also, suggested by Eva, such as flowered garlands, and floral pew decorations that also served as table decorations. We were able to rent mirrors and votives as well. For a small fee we utilized Eva,s ""Stress Free Service"", her staff delivered the flowers to the church, set everything up beautifully, stayed and pinned on the corsages and boutonierres, waited until the ceremony was over, quickly and efficiently took down the decorations , transported them to the reception, and they were set up before the guests started arriving. Talk about SMOOTH!!!!! The flowers were superb, and the service was spectacular. I would highly recommend The Garden of Eva for any occasion. They made our day worry free. more

open letter to lindsk 1/18/2007

First I would like to apologize to you for the experience you had on January 12, 2007. I do not have more

phone orders 1/12/2007

I called to order flowers for a friend whose grandmother passed away and the person who answered the phone, while extremely polite, clearly didn't have a clue--he didn't even give the name of the shop when he answered the phone, just said ""flower shop."" He asked me what I wanted and when I told him I wanted a small arrangement with a couple of white roses, he told me I could get some daisies with herbs. When I told him that was not what I was looking for, he couldn't think of anything else. He said he wasn't sure what I wanted--even though I'd told him EXACTLY what I wanted. I read the other reviews and I was expecting A LOT better service. Unfortunately, I don't live close enough to just go into the shop and pick something out--I picked it because of the reviews and the proximity to my friend's home. I didn't give them my business, but they gave me a headache! Think twice before calling this store!! more

Exceeds your expectations 12/15/2006

I've been to garden of eva for every birthday, anniversary and major holiday this year. I am always welcomed with warm smiles and courteous customer service staff. I know Eva is a busy woman, but she helps me with my specific requests each visit. If this rating were for woman of the year, she would be at the top. Thank you again Eva for making each gift special. Pros: style more

The Only Florist I Would Consider! 12/5/2006

I have been using this florist exclusively for the last 16 years and there is not other that I would consider! Eva's customer service is outstanding! She employs responsible and reliable staff who are friendly and very helpful. My orders have ranged from personal to business and I have always been very pleased! In fact, Eva's creations have always exceeded my expectations. She and her team have a good eye for creative arrangements and innovative ideas for solving unusual occassions. Pros: Very friendly service that can always be depended on and delivers the best product for your money! more

...and I thought buying wedding flowers was going to be stressful, not so at Garden of Eva! 11/28/2006

I was very impressed with Garden of Eva. Eva listened to my ideas, made excellent suggestions and was very easy to work with. She clearly knows her stuff! I was clueless and nervous about buying wedding flowers and Eva took the time and really worked with me to create beautiful fall wedding flowers. She is kind and genuinely cares about your wedding. She went above and beyond my expectations. Go see Eva, you won't be disappointed!! more

Best Customer Service 11/17/2006

I always write with a green pen and Eva went out and bought a green pen so she could sign all of the bouquets I sent to friends in green ink. She always puts a white daisy in all of the arrangements as my trademark. She has the freshest flowers and tthey last the longest.. more

18 years of excellence 11/16/2006

I have done all of my floral business with Eva for 18 years and have referred my business clients and friends to her for all of their special occasions. I have been more than satisfied with all aspects of her business and have received heartfelt thanks from customers I have referred to Garden of Eva. I highly recommend Eva and her staff at Garden of Eva for the highest quality of creativity and service. more

The One and Only Flower Shop! 11/16/2006

Garden of Eva is the one and only flower shop that I recommend to eveyone I know. Eva has superb arrangements and a very friendly staff. My family and I have used Eva's amazing arrangements for years and we would not go anywhere else. If you are looking for premium service and extraordinarily beautiful flowers, then Garden of Eva is for you!- Emilia Ramirez Pros: Elite Service and Gorgeous Flowers Cons: That there aren't more floral shops like this one more

Most beautiful arrangements, great service 11/16/2006

I am CEO of a St. Paul business. I have used Garden of Eva for years for my corporate clients and have received nothing but rave reviews about the floral arrangements she has done for me. Eva goes out of her way to be sure that my business is represented beautifully in the flowers we send. Garden of Eva was also used for my daughter's wedding reception. The floral arrangements were exceptional and the wedding cake adorned with fresh flowers was the most beautiful I have ever seen. A great shop, talented and caring staff- the BEST! Pros: Most artistic arrangements I've ever seen more

Awesome Service and Design! 11/16/2006

Eva Rocks! She did the flowers for our wedding - and after visiting 4 other florists - we knew she was the one to go with for that all important day. The time she spent with us showing us exactly what we'd see on our wedding day and reasonable pricing - put her over the top of the other florists we had visited. I have also used Eva professionally and personally. I have lost count of the number of compliments that I've received on the arrangements that Eva has done for family, friends and co-workers. Whether you need flowers for your wedding or any other ocassion - Eva does an awesome job - you won't be disappointed. Pros: Eva and her staff are great to work with for any occasion. Cons: None so far.... more

Great customer service 11/16/2006

Garden of Eva stands alone in its customer service. It's reminiscent of the quality you once knew decades ago. Their timely service, quality products and comparative prices makes it a stand alone gem in the heart of St. Paul. If you want to be treated as you and your loved ones deserve to be treated, stop in and see the team at Garden of Eva. You won't be disappointed. I've been a loyale customer for more than ten years and I don't live in St. Paul! I've ordered flowers, plants, candy, decorative home goods and even fruit baskets. And all have been prepared with great care and consideration. Garden of Eva has stood behind every product. If roses were sent and didn't open, I never had to ask if they would replace them. They stand behind their product and go the extra mile to ensure customer satifaction. No matter where I travel, when a florist is needed I don't log onto the internet, no, I call the best and I get the BEST! more

Highly recommend Garden of Eva Florist 11/16/2006

isu boy maybe should make an appointment for his wedding plans instead of walking in off the street and expecting the world to stop for him. Eva has many friends who love her work and special attention to service and creative design. more

Stay out of Eva's Garden 10/27/2006

My fiance and I stopped by Garden of Eva to get information about flowers for our wedding. After being forced to wait for several minutes Eva herself finally appeared and told us that there wasn't a ""wedding specialist"" working and that she was too busy to help us. I'm not sure what she was too busy doing, as we were the only people in the store. She did show us a couple of photo albums that looked like they were put together in 1985. There was a very friendly young woman who was working at the counter though. I found it odd that a teenage sales clerk had better people skills than the owner herself. Pros: Friendly sales clerk Cons: Eva was very rude and unhelpful more
