Great food and service! The location feels like your eating in an ancient ruin, but in a good way! Open and airy rooms with tons of character. This is a neighborhood gem.

I ordered the Filet Shish-kabob. The Filet was tender and delicious but they skimp on their vegetables. For the price, I think they could do a better job with providing more vegetables.

This is an exquisite remodel of a classic Pasadena landmark building. I remember its previous use, so I can say this is very nicely done. The hostess and our waiter seemed harried and a little confused (maybe just a bad day?) but the attentive "busboy" seemed confident and relaxed. The food was relatively OK, the decor is exceptional, parking is ample.

We so enjoyed our first visit to Eden Garden! The servers were so friendly and helpful with food suggestions. Loved the Halloum appetizer, and the Kefta Kabob was super tasty. Everything our party had was deliciously prepared and presented. The Arabic tea with mint leaves was a great addition to the meal. Will definitely be back for more!

The food was no better than average and the hookah activity in the next section really turned us off. It's a lovely setting for a restaurant but drafty and on the cold side. We will not be returning.

We went for Valentine's Day dinner before an 8:00 pm show. Service was a little less attentive than I expected, since we were there early in the evening and the place had only a few table occupied.
Servings were quite large and of acceptable quality...not great...but very good.

It was Valentines Day, and we were so excited about trying this place out for a special evening.

We carefully reviewed the menu online and were thrilled that there were so many vegan options, as you'd expect from a place specializing in Mediterranean Cuisine... baba ganoush, stuffed grape leaves, falafel, eggplant... Yum!

But not on this night. (A vegan diet is not a fad for us; it's kind of a medical necessity.)

When I spoke to the restaurant confirming our reservation they assured me that, even though there would be a limited prix fix menu that evening, the chef was preparing an exciting vegan alternative selection.

Turns out that would be a pretty sad plate of fettuccine -- lacking any of the character or flavor this place and its cuisine promised. Even the waitress seemed a bit confused, and slightly inattentive; actually serving un-ordered ice cream desserts after a pleasant but direct conversation that vegan meant not eating dairy as well as meat.

I don't blame a restaurant for changing its menu on special occasions... but I don't appreciate being lured into an expensive evening on the false representations of the restaurant, compounded by the mis-understandings of the wait staff.

I'm sure that on other nights the food would be perfect (or at least as advertised) but with so many restaurant options in Pasadena, why would anyone take a chance here spending lots of money??

Yeah, the salad, pita and pasta for two came to over $100...
so they added an automatic tip for themselves of 17%.
Nice.

Oh, they also allowed the table right next to us to enjoy a hookah throughout the meal
in the enclosed dining area which is, of course, against California law.
They must have an “in” with City Hall, around the corner.

As always, this is the place we go when we want to spend good company and long hours past 10pm. Amazing music and food, no hidden extra charges. Super friendly waiting crew, very friendly owner who cares about his customers.
Delicious middle-eastern and mediterranean combination works so well for this place and if you love hookah then you can't stay away.

Eden Garden is amazing for family and friends get together. You have great menu with very reasonable pricing, great selection of drinks, and live music. You can relax and have fun with friends till late late night (which isn't common thing especially in Pasadena).

My experience at Eden Garden was really disappointing. The restaurant was empty, which was our first sign of trouble, and we ordered the vegetarian falafel plate which seemed safe. The falafel was decent, but the hummus, moutabal, and dolmeh were all clearly from a can. The pita bread was store bought. It was really a let down.

The confluence of flavors was absolutely wonderful. FRESH ingredients were evident. We had a mixture of vegetarians and meat eaters, we all shared plates, and there was enough variety to satisfy all very well. We really enjoyed our time together there.

This restaurant is a great find! The ambiance is wonderful and welcoming. The staff was warm and friendly -- it is a very welcoming atmosphere. The food matched all other aspects of the restaurant. The Pita was warm and fresh and the salmon was cooked perfectly. Overall this was a spectacular experience.

One of the worst dining experiences I've ever had. Wish I could rate the food but sadly we never got to that point. The restaurant was empty with about 4 tables seated. They seated us in a far back corner with a portable ac blowing wind and noise at our table.

Upon waiting 15 mins 3 waiters visited the table next to us, one of which spent about 5 mins flirting, discussing school, the heat wave and more. Not one single server stopped by to our table. No one offered us water. No one took drunk orders. Nothing. Not a single word to us. Despite passing us over 10 times.

Incredibly rude service from the start. Was it due to us being the only white family there? Not sure, but it was disrespectful.

My first time. The food was disappointing. The entertainment started late. When we asked that something be replaced because it was overcooked we were told we just did not know how it was supposed to be cooked. Very disappointing. But the place was cute.
