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.
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.
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.
On a spur of the moment decision, my date and I decided to do the tasting menu with her adding the wine tasting for herself. The tasting menu was fun, creative, and tasty. They happily and readily accommodated my gluten free request. The only downside, for as much as you can call it that, was that I actually almost felt too full at the end. There were only two dishes that really stood out as having more food than was necessary in the scope of the meal. These were primarily meat courses and it felt as though an overly generous portion was provided. In fairness, however, for a restaurant to serve too little in the way of food would be far worse than too much. So I understand where Chef Max was coming from. With that being said, I really loved the way the food was presented, including the plates or bowls themselves. Furthermore, their first desert course was magical. Easily the best desert I have ever had. It was a sous vide apple, with bold cinnamon and star anise flavors, sitting on top of foie gras nestled next to crushed hazelnuts with apple infused bubbles on top of it all. Stunning.
I would be doing them a great disservice if I failed to mention and comment on the awesome wine pairing. Throughout the dinner I had tasted the wines that had been included along the way as my partner and I ate. My favorite part was that the sommelier really brought a wide variety of wines from different parts of France, Germany, and other regions. As someone who has very little experience with wine, the combinations of dishes and the accompanying wine all made sense. The winner of the night was the Sichel 2010 Sautrenes that was paired with the first desert dish. It is a must buy if you are in a position to get a bottle.
Eden Hill provided a great meal and a great night. I plan on returning.
This is our second time at Eden Hill. We had a party of 10 this time and did the tasting menu with wine pairing. The food was exceptional! Creative, beautifully plated and delicious. Our server was very attentive. The wine pairing was perfect. They were able to seamlessly deal with dietary issues. this is my favorite new restaurant in Seattle.
Presumably uncharacteristically and very unfortunately, Eden Hill was off the rails when we arrived for the last stop on our 8-week tour of Seattle Magazine's "Best New Restaurants 2017" list. Chalk it up to a "bad night?" We arrived for our reservation and waited 60 minutes for a table. When a table was finally ready, it was uncomfortably cramped. We waited another 15 minutes to confirm with our server that yes, we just wanted the tasting menu (I would imagine most diners would have made their meal planning decisions after 60 minutes to think about the menu and wouldn't need an extra 15 minutes of hunger). After yet another 15 minutes passed, when we still had no food, we left, went across the street to Ethan Stowell's How to Cook a Wolf, and ate a fantastic Italian dinner with prompt and outstanding service. I honestly wish I could give Eden Hill more than one star in any category, but everything that could have gone right during our partial dining experience instead went terribly wrong. I give Eden Hill the benefit of the doubt that our visit was very unusual. Still, I don't think we'll be giving them a "second chance"; the cramped dining space alone was unpleasant enough that we can find excellent food elsewhere even if the service is normally substantially better.
Beautiful, creative, and delicious tasting menu. Leave 2-3 hours. We were there for 3+ and are fast eaters but the pacing is slow. The presentation is amazing. The chairs are meh, especially after 2 hours.
Fabulous and creative! A memorable event!
We are foodies we eat out a lot and we were both totally blown away by this restaurant! Everything we had was Amazing! I think we agreed one of the best dinners we have ever had in the city!!
Amazing dining experience, such a great little spot tucked away in Queen Anne. Each plate was divine and had me excited to try the next.
What a fine new restaurant find. We had an event on Queen Anne and wanted to dine after ... Eden Hill was the choice, and a tasty one. We ordered and shared four small plates, plus shared a dessert. Small, thoughtful wine list rounded out our meal. Fine, seamless service and a cozy interior made fir a very fun date night.
Excellent experience of the tasting menu for a special occasion. They were able to accommodate multiple dietary restrictions individualized to each member of our party. Overall, a great evening with delicious food and wine and great staffing/service. Highly recommended and will be returning soon to sample the regular menu
