Very nice upscale dining experience. Appetizer, Ouso Bucco and dessert was superb. Had reservations for 8PM, arrived early, was told 15 minutes, waited 40 minutes, as we were leaving an open table was found. The steak was sent back. Tough and raw. The staff made amends for their errors. Will go again but we will be more aggressive about reservation and wait time

Good server. Nice menu. Ribs had more spice than flavor. Scallops had a nice sear but we're overcooked and chewy and over salted. I can only surmise that microgreens on top were charred by the dish being left under a broiler. Risotto was gummy. The most bizzare was the "panna cotta" made from milk "strained through gluten free Coco puffs". The gelatin content further ruined the dessert. Who puts gluten free Coco puffs scattered on a polished dessert plate?--- it looked like rabbit pellets. Meh....

When full, the restaurant is way too loud. Tonight’s meal was a total bust. None of the 3 in our party enjoyed their selections. Wine I ordered with meal never came. 2 tables of bachelorette celebrants ruined the evening. This was the last of 5 visits to this restaurant.

Eden is one of the most reliable restaurants in Rehoboth Beach. In more than 20 visits over the year, they have been consistently very good or excellent. The ambience is excellent, the seafood is superb, the wine list is very good, the service is usually top notch, and the desserts are outstanding.

Wednesday Night Off!
Eden is one of our - perhaps most - favorite restaurants in town. We went with family at 6 pm on Wednesday, September 5, 2018. The service was excellent, but the food was unfortunately not the best that night. Chef's night off perhaps? Anyway the corn and crab fritters had been fried too long and had an unpleasant taste. The rockfish was also over-cooked and not good. Finally, the "margarita pie" was just the key lime pie off the regular menu and was nothing special. All in all, a disappointing meal at an otherwise fine restaurant.

The menu was very good - the dishes were interesting even if a bit too intent on multiple flavors. The service was acceptable. Our server was somewhat condescending, which is a joke in a beach town populated by East Coast vacationers. The restaurant was not the least bit interested in trying to accommodate our request for a different table. But if your main interest is the food, Eden is probably worth a visit.

First to start i picked this restaurant because reviews say its the most romantic and from the pictures i saw it did look romantic and nice, it was my girlfriends birthday wanted to impress her with the atmosphere alone, well that changed soon as we started walking through the restaurant only the booth tables appeared to be a little romantic but not really and there weren't very many at all, so they skipped all the booth tables and the whole nicer looking downstairs all together and took me to upstairs hell the table was by the window not bad looking out at the town but right next to a big Greek family that was very drunk loud and obnoxious . table was a hard circle outdoor table hurts forearms when rested upon to long,food definitely over priced for the quality this restaurant is definitely MISLEADING AND DEF NOT THE MOST ROMANTIC AT ALL IF YOUR LOOKING FOR ROMANTIC DEF DINT GO HERE SERIOUSLY A LET DOWN AND THIS IS THE FIRST BAD REVIEW I HAVE EVER DONE IN 26 YEARS JUST VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE ATMOSPHERE! NEVER GOING BACK HEIRLOOM IN LEWES IS MORE ROMANTIC AND SAME MENU BUT BETTER!

Tomahawk veal chop was superb! Crab and watermelon salad delicious and refreshing but sparse on crabmeat. Service uneven, drinks came after appetizers and our entrée arrived before we ordered wine, yet server checked on us frequently. Romantic atmosphere, server noted our anniversary but provided nothing special. Good value for money.

Some of the worst food I have ever had in Rehoboth. Many great restaurants in Rehoboth. This isn’t one of them based on our experience. Our fish was over cooked and had the consistency of saw dust. We sent our meals back. More disappointing was the fact that the manager was sitting at the bar and couldn’t be bothered to walk over to the table and speak with us. The server did remove the meals from our bill. Try blue moon or back porch for a great experience and avoid the eden establishment.

The filmy-curtained booths in Eden are romantic, but the space is mostly open tables and somewhat noisy. Food was quite good - grilled scallops on creamy spring vegetable risotto and halibut with tomato jus and vegetables- but grilled Caesar salad needed more char. Service was excellent - attentive without being obtrusive.

We loved the look of the restaurant when we walked in, nice breezy curtains and stylish decor. We started with the lobster crab appetizer & the chicken Alfredo flat bread—both delicious! Next my husband had the venison chop as an entree, and I had the watermelon cucumber gazpacho as well as the watermelon and arugula salad—-so delicious! Great food and service so it being on the pricey side was acceptable because of that. Delicious dinner and drinks with good service—we will be back!

If you are looking for fine dining in Rehoboth,there are only a few choices. Eden has to be on that list ! I have been coming here over the many years, since it opened.It never disappoints & my last dinner there 2 nights ago is why I continue to return.
The atmosphere & setting is like no other RB restaurant. The food is always fresh & creative.Although I must admit the crab tower might need a bit of an up-date after all these yrs..Think hearts of palm underneath & some cocktail or other sauces to go with it.
The service is always the best, in the area. We had a young, tall male waiter who just made the evening so much better with his service, knowledge & friendly personality.

We hadn’t been to Eden in a while. The food quality remains excellent. We started with a lobster, crab, avocado “tower” that was delicious—chunks of lobster and crab meet, avocado and mango. For mains, my wife had scallops with risotto. She loves v d the scallops but said that the risotto was a bit dry. I had wasabi crusted tuna, that was done perfectly.
Service was fine, although our server seemed distracted by so many tables.

Overpriced even for the Beach. The restaurant wasn’t nearly for but the staff couldn’t be put out even for the smallest thing. How hard is it to toast or throw some bread on the grill? Gaps in service as well.

This was a welcome respite from all the fried-food dives near the beach--serious, grown-up dining experience. The charcuterie & cheese plate was quite good, my wife's filet mignon was outstanding, my venison chops were very good, & they had a terrific wine list & great service. Great place for a date night!
