Intimate French restaurant on a quiet neighborhood street in Queen Anne. Food and service was excellent. Restaurant is intimate, but tables are quite close unless you get one of the two in the window. Therefore, private conversations can become public with your neighbors. Ingredients are very fresh, including salad ingredients grown in their own garden. Excellent wine choices and spot and knowledgeable servers. I also like the fact that the chef/owner stopped by to check in on us. We'll be back!

We wished we would’ve ordered from the à la cart menu instead of doing the tasting menu. We both felt for the price the food should have been the best food we have had. We both left hungry and a little disappointed for the price that we paid.

This hidden gem at the top of Queen Anne Hill is AMAZING! I have done the tasting meal twice and each dish that comes out in this seven course event is more incredible than the previous dish. They are innovative, artistic, flavorful and the restaurant caters to your likes, dislikes, allergies and food types. My brother was visiting me and claimed, following dinner, that he would fly from Boston just to eat at Eden Hill. He is a big foodie so kudos to the chef! I will be back again with friends and family.

Simply amazing. The food and service is both outstanding. Tasting menu is amazing also blind but they take into account allergies and preferences. A la carte menu is amazing as well. The fact all the chefs get to have an input on the menu is a very cool thing. They’re all very talented, smart and, passionate. 69 out of 10 would recommend.

Gently fried cauliflower simply delightful.
Crabmeat ravioli great presentation; a lot of crabmeat; not necessarily distinctive flavors
Candy bar meat dish (sheep's head was it) interesting, pretty almost too cute; too much deep fat fried
Brisket really nice, flavorful, sweet and not sweet, too much fat on top. By this point, we had eaten too much.

Can't wait for the new shop up the street on our corner!

The food is outstanding, interesting, delicious. This venue is very small, so few tables, a bit cramped, and when we were there, totally full, and ... hot and stuffy. Reservations are a must, as this is one of those very special Seattle places where the food it 5 stars, unique, mouthwatering. The service was top of the line, as well. Consequently, it is rather expensive, but I felt, worth it.

I thought the food was good. The venison especially was very surprising and delicious. I really liked the ambiance and design of the space, and the wine pairings were fantastic. I was caught off guard by the final check, which was edging on something much higher end in terms of food and experience, like a Canlis. I will go back but will likely do the a la carte menu and a bottle of wine next time. It's always fun to do a tasting menu though!

This was our second time at Eden Hill we came back to celebrate our son s graduation as we had an amazing memory from our first experience. Not only was the tasting menu not impressive with little unique flavors but more importantly I am celiac and I must have gotten some gluten despite mentioning this allergy several times as I have been very ill overnight... We are very disappointed.

We went with the a la carte menu, this being our first visit to Eden Hill. The cocktails we started with were excellent, particularly the lemon/honey/gin/Sunshine concoction. We ordered the seafood charcuterie and the octopus was sublime. The other standout dish was the seafood lasagna, with crab and scallops--this was really incredible, with the right balance so you could really taste the seafood, and a delicious broth at the base in which to dip your freshly made brioche.

This was—almost—exactly the sort of food adventure we wanted. The staff was amazing. The ambiance was quaint. And for the most part, the Chef's "surprise" menu was enticing, introducing us to food we'd never have tried on our own. And the wine pairings were great, so kudos to the sommelier. In all these specifics, it was a success. Given that we selected an unknown tasting menu, I can't fault that the meal was like reading the first page of ten different books.

So I guess it comes down to our failure to adequately pay attention, because it's now clear that VERY EXPENSIVE is part of Eden Hill's brand. If you've got the means, then yes: we highly recommend this place for, as first noted, the adventure. You'll love it! But if you're a person of average middle-class means, we'd probably steer you clear. Or, at least offer you this fair warning.

This is a fantastic place for foodies. I have always loved every single dish. The food is inventive and also very simple at times. They do have regular items that are always on the menu like the candy pig head or the lick the bowl (foie gras cake batter) dessert. It is a very cozy restaurant where you can dress up or go casual while having a fantastic meal!

We ordered five dishes and each one was wonderful. Cocktails were also delicious. Did not care for the window seats where one of the two seats would always have their back to the restaurant (a little claustrophobic even facing a window). Timing of second drink arrival was spot on. Wish they had given us new plates between the third and fourth courses rather than between the fourth and fifth.

This is quite possibly my new favorite Seattle restaurant. I felt like I was in Paris at a small bistro. The dishes were highly creative, unusual, and delicious. The chef is a genius with mixing flavors and spices. This is really a Seattle gem comparable to the best restaurants I’ve eat at in Paris, New York, and San Francisco! I will return for more.

The flavors and presentation were quite unique and good. we ate off the small plate menu and really liked the Waldorf salad and cauliflower “chilaquiles,”and the deserts absolutely amazing.
The plating, and how the dishes were served was outstanding.
The bartender/our waitress seemed a bit removed and not happy. Overall the staff was not engaging , or very friendly. They were just accommodating...gave me the feeling they wish they weren't working there.
Too bad for the staff because otherwise it was pretty great place to have dinner.
