Fantastic anniversary dinner at Eden Hill. How had we not discovered this small gem sooner? The tasting menu was exquisite. They accomodated the combination of a meat eater and a vegan beautifully and seemlessly. The premium wine pairings were truly unusual (e.g., a nine year old Sancerre that had the sensation of a fine Burgundy), extremely interesting and delicious. The service was friendly, attentive and very informative about each dish and the wines. A very small restaurant so prepare to be cozy. Although expensive, very good value given the quality of the tasting menu is on par with restaurants that charge more for their tasting menus.
Celebrated my boyfriend’s 31st birthday here as a special dinner date. The food was great and service to match. We actually sat at the bar as the table before us went overtime and we were flexible to be seated at the bar rather than the table. They showed their appreciation by adding a glass of rosé for us as well as a couple tasting menu items as a gift. Phenomenal experience just like our last time here last year.
Amazing tasting menu. The ambiance was great, server was friendly and knowledgable. A Seattle favorite! Would highly recommend eating here.
The chef clearly has an imagination, pairing foods you might not expect. Not a place for nonadventurous diners
Awesome. Simply awesome from start to finish!
Incredible tasting menu, knowledgeable and friendly service. Every course was imaginative, well presented, and delicious.
We had a special dinner with friends and family. Beautiful creations were enjoyed by all.
One of the best meals I’ve had. Ever. I’ve eaten here before, and it was always great - but you can tell Chef Max has increasingly honed his craft. We were celebrating my brothers birthday, and everyone had an unbelievable time. Highly recommend.
My boyfriend and I like to try new, different food experiences. While traveling to Seattle, we decided to do a tasting menu at a restaurant in the area. Eden Hill had amazing reviews, and after reading that the chef was a James Beard semi-finalist, we decided to make a reservation. We were not disappointed.
We choose the chef's tasting menu, which is a blind seven course meal. I ate food I'd never tried before- duck mousse, sea scallops, lobster, rabbit, and lamb (which was my favorite). The veggies they served along side the meats were cooked to perfection. Each dish was creative. My favorite, creative wise, was the duck mousse. It came in a box, filled with smoke, that looked like a cigar and even had an "ash" with it. The desserts were decedent.
The wait staff was very friendly, making sure that everything was to our liking. The chef even came out for the second course, which was a nice surprise and personal touch.
I highly recommend eating here. You will definitely need to make a reservation, but it's totally worth it.
The restaurant was cozy, cute, and intimate. The décor was beautiful, the wait staff were incredible and funny. It seems like a place that would be very hipster and stuffy but we didn't find that here. We had a wonderful experience on top of an unbelievable meal. The tasting menu was scrumptious and clever. It is hands down the best restaurant in Seattle. It hit all the marks for us, being quirky and fun, delicious, and friendly all at the same time.
Had an amazing experience. Ambience and service were first class, and the chefs menu was innovative and perfectly portioned. Really well done.
Lived in Seattle for over 3 years now, and this was by far a Top 3 meal we've ever had here!!! Will come again. Very interesting, creative, and exciting menu.
This is our favorite restaurant in Seattle. It's always a wonderful dining experience. Innovative, unpretentious and of the highest quality. Our server, Chauncey, is friendly, knowledge and a true professional.
The tasting menu is always one of the best dining experiences in Seattle. The food is so clever and creative and delicious!
Great food -- especially enjoyed sharing creative Tapas plates. Attentive Service. Very good wine list, suitable range of prices appropriate to fine dining. I'll go back.
Had an AMAZING dinner! Food unique and delicious, ambiance friendly and neighborhood-like, service spot on. Owner/chef is super personable and made us feel right at home. Highly recommend!
Been here a couple times and everytime Its always amazing service and even more amazing food. The Chef is so kind and so generous, I always recommend this place to anybody looking for a great restaurant. Only downside is the plates are shareable only unless its a tasting menu so just means I have to share instead od keeping all the amazing food to myself
Wasn’t happy with the tasting and wine pairing menu. Did not see the value in $250 bill
We arrived right on time for our reservation. The table they had reserved for us was still enjoying the experience so we had to wait. While waiting we were kept up to date on the table's status and the team kept us happy by supplying us with wine, free of charge. We loved the fact that the server was also a Sommelier. Given this, the food pairing with the menu took the experience to another level. Well done!
Best Meal I have ever had what an experience
the creative flavors and textures wow
In the nearly 15 years I've lived in Seattle, this has to be one of the best meals I've had here. From the exquisite micro vegetables, to table smoked potatoes to all the other courses. The wine pairings, while they would have been great stand-alone choices, were thoughtful and very complimentary. The service was great, as expected and Chef Maximilian even made an appearance to check in with all his guests. If you have the chance, don't miss this place.
Great great service ... fabulous food ! Wonderful bartender.. great Manhattan! Atmosphere, furnishings could use a little help . One of the better dining experiences in Seattle.
We were looking for a small intimate restaurant with a unique menu. Found it in Eden Hill. We chose the pre-fix menu and loved the surprise with each course. Quite the molecular gastronomy experience.
We loved it! Cauliflower chilaquiles and pork risotto were amazing!
Best restaurant in town, no question. I would consider myself a regular, but enjoy trying new high caliber spots around Seattle as frequently as possible. Yet every time I try a new spot, I wish I had just spent that money at Eden Hill.
The tasting menu is way over priced for what was served. When you leave a place after dining for an hour and a half and spend 536.00, that is a rip off. The server was blatantly rude and the food was just okay. We literally went home and heated up some left overs.
STAY AWAY from this overpriced place.
We ordered the tasting menu. The first course was a pretzel bread roll with butter, mustard, and a caramel sauce. The roll was delicious and accompaniments decent. The next course was a largely forgettable and flavorless sashimi plate. Next was an adventurous dish: pig brain souffle. My date's English is somewhat limited, so she didn't know what the course was. The smell and flavor were both slightly off putting. I tried a few bites and gave up. My date did as well, but I didn't tell her what it was until after she gave up. Next was a forgettable spicy fried cauliflower dish. Next was a delicious chicken dish with three sauces (mushroom, beef, and parsnip puree). After was an intermezzo palate cleanser ice cream dish. The main course was sous vide beef and foie gras. I enjoyed it, but my date said that it was too salty for her palate. I guess that makes it a toss up. The desserts were fine. Nothing to gush about, but not bad.
Overall I'd say the dishes were inconsistent. The bill (including 2 drinks) came to over $300. I could probably get a significantly better meal across the street for less than half that price.
Awesome food and experience
We went to Eden Hill for a special occasion and it was that. We chose the Chef's Tasting Menu and most of the dishes were wonderful (chocolate dessert), a couple superlative (the beef short-rib), and a couple meh (the duck egg). Service was good - well paced and timely and responsive.
I have two criticisms.
One, we requested to share the wine pairing for the Tasting Menu and a) I think they should give us two classes with 1/2 pours so we can both experience the taste at the same time - they gave us 1 glass for each wine and b) some of the pours were so short that you could barely share it - I can't believe those were the full pairing pours, it was weird.
Two, the dinner was so expensive it was crazy. $450 for two people. It was a lovely dinner with a very light wine pairing. I could see $300 or maybe $350 but there was no way it was worth $450.
Absolutely phenomenal. Creative, incredibly tasty without any pretentiousness!
We visited Eden Hill for my birthday and were incredibly happy with the chef's tasting menu. We both felt it was one of the best meals we've ever had in Seattle.
Cozy restaurant. Service was excellent. Someone available for questions about wines and food. But always nonintrusive.
Tasting menu each course delicious and unique.
The food was amazing! I went with a group of 3 others to celebrate a belated birthday and the service was impeccable. We didn’t do the tasting menu (seemed a little pricey) but did order one of everything on the menu and we loved pretty much everything. Someone who isn’t a fan of seafood even liked the seafood dishes! One round of drinks did take a little long to get to the table but otherwise our service was great. Amazing food, cute little spot, definitely would recommend. If the tasting menu price was lower I’d probably be more interested in trying it.
Possibly the best meal of my life. Certainly the best beignet of my life, and I lived in New Orleans. And it was a crab beignet. In a sauce made out of lovage. But that's only two out of seven parts of the dish. How the... what the...
I took my wife here for her birthday. I did not know the chef, Maximillian Petty, had been nominated (or won?) James Beard awards when I booked it, but it explained a lot about the meal when we saw it later.
Get the chef's tasting menu. It's worth it.
Also, the wait staff is tip-top. Listen to her. She knows. And tell her if you don't like foie gras. She can you help you if you trust her. Trust her.
We tried the blind tasting menu last weekend. The food was well prepared and beautifully presented. Some of the creative cuisine was not to my personal taste but it was fun to try. Portion sizes were larger than many tasting menus and there are 9 courses so come hungry.
Service was excellent. We had 2 folks serve us and both were informative, attentive and very gracious. This was consistent throughout the more than 2 hour meal.
The only downside is the space itself. It is very small and tables are close together. We had to pull our table out to seat ourselves and the table was wobbly. When guests at the adjacent table got up for any reason, they had to do the same. On the plus side, we did get to make some new acquaintances and share in all of their conversations given our proximity. This won't prevent us from returning but we'll plan for a shorter dinner off the ala carte menu.
Food was very good, presentation was gorgeous. We did not do the tasting menu, but I’m sure it would be amazing. Biggest downside was that I felt like it was pricier than it should have been. You could easily spend $150 per person and leave hungry.
Truly wonderful food, creative (but not over the top) preparations, delightful wine pairings with global sourcing, appropriate portions, attentive and intelligent service at the bar. It's obvious why the chef is a James Beard Rising Star Chef of the Year semi-finalist. It reminded me of a 1-star Michelin restaurant in Chicago. What a treasure!
Everything was amazing from the Atmosphere, service and every course was delicious, we didn't feel rushed and it is a very cozy spot for date night. The chef was very accommodating for diet restrictions. The entire staff was friendly.
We had the best time. The staff is exceptional and very friendly. The food is amazing. The chef knows how to bring out the flavors in local ingredients in a very creative way. He doesn’t use off the wall ingredients just for the sake of using them. If he does, it is with a purpose. The chef’s tasting menu is the way to go though. We were definitely full, more than enough food for the two of us. Highly recommend.
I really enjoyed the amazingly well prepared and tasteful dishes at Eden Hill. However, the price is very high for the quantity of food served. Be prepared to spend a fair bit of money to truly enjoy the amazing food. The total bill was $180 and included several small dishes, 2 drinks, and some pelligrino sparkling water. We left feeling satiated. I would highly recommend, but just be prepared for the final bill.
