Great ambience and service. Food and drinks were unpredictable. The cocktails were overly sweet,the rockfish and scallops were great. My ossobucco was not tender, lot of gristle and the flavors didn’t blend

We really enjoyed it and the food was great. Our waiter was very nice but the order got lost and our food was VERY delayed. They comped us our drinks. We would go again for sure but just be wary. Will two women somehow, again, not get the best service?

Great waitperson and outstanding food. We dined outdoors on the 2nd floor porch and it was hot as hades but that was simply the sweltering weather that day -- no fault of anyone. There was a glitch in our order that caused the entree to arrive very late, but we were not in a hurry and were comped for the cost of one entree. I would definitely dine here again.

Had dinner with friends to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We always had good experiences at Eden, in fact we had our daughter’s wedding reception there so we expected the usual fine service.

Our Server was great! Entrees excellent, but the baked clams appetizer was at best mediocre.

Hostess (Mattie) was very impolite and inconsiderate. When we walked in we told her that one of our guests could not make it due to illness, she was visibility upset and started tossing the place settings to rearrange the table to seat 5 people instead of 6. I had made this reservation several weeks prior and as the dining room had a number of empty tables I was disappointed to be given the one table in the back right next to the kitchen doorway and directly under a loudspeaker. We couldn’t hear our own conversation so we asked for another table since there were several available. Our server asked the hostess to change tables but she refused our request. This indeed was a new dining experience, so I again asked and the hostess wanted to know why we wanted to move, but finally relented. We thought this was due to expected diners coming in, but that table and several others were still empty upon our departure so why the attitude? There are too many excellent restaurants in this are and I am all too happy to pay and tip well for a fine dinner and service. Accordingly we are not planning to return to Eden anytime soon.

Eden is an excellent restaurant! A focused, but still pleasingly varied/eclectic, menu, backed up by a great kitchen that delivered on every single dish that hit our table, and a charming, & very efficient, front of house team, they are just great, and we can’t wait to go back, would recommend them to anyone!

Bartender was over worked and very grumpy. Set the tone for the night. Found out he was making drinks for the bar and the restaurant but he took it out on the guests. Servers Grant and Fin were very busy as well but very kind.

The food and service was great. However, I had made mention when I made the reservation that there we were celebrating 2 birthdays and asked for a birthday dessert. When we arrived, I mentioned it again to the hostess. We even mentioned to the waiter when he first came over to the table that we had 2 birthdays at the table. When desserts arrived, there was no acknowledgment of the birthdays. When I spoke to the person at the front desk, nothing was done but a half hearted apology. We spent over $700 and it was very disappointing that nothing was done to rectify this situation. We chose Eden specifically to celebrate the birthdays of two people. I have been to Eden in the past, but now Eden is off of my list of restaurants to go to in Rehoboth.

PS 24 hours later - the fact that no one has responded to me from the restaurant - they obviously do not care about returning customers.

Shrimp scampi flat bread was terrible (shrimp had a fishy taste and the flatbread was burnt). One person in our party of 5 ordered filet mignon medium rare and it came out well done and the accompanying asparagus was over cooked. Another person in our party ordered the halibut and when it came our it was over cooked and cold inside so they took it away and it appeared that they reheated it as the halibut was very dry. We would like to think these issues were due to a shortage of personnel during the summer vacation period but despite this we would never go back and will never recommend to our friends and acquaintances who live locally.

Not what I would consider a “fine dining” experience. At arrival we are seated at a very loud corner. I ask hostess if could be moved to one of several other open tables. Was unapologetically refused to be reseated. Asked to speak with manager who just gives rather inept excuse with poor attitude. Then food kept getting served incorrectly and dessert was even delivered to wrong table. When food did arrive the mashed potatoes were over cooked and asparagus too soft. Overall a very bad service with bad management.

Cute place, was highly recommended by a friend who lives in Rehoboth. The wine and drink selections are impressive but prices are mostly absurd (although oddly quite reasonable for some selections, such as the beers and the more simple mixed drinks). The burrata appetizer was the highlight - truly lovely. Otherwise, there was nothing impressive overall about this experience and we left very underwhelmed. The halibut itself was cooked perfectly and was excellent, but the rest of the preparation was very bland. The antelope itself was just not good, although the preparation was. The key lime “pie” was a joke - more of a tart and a small sliver at that. We would give it another shot the next time we are in the area, but would try totally different dishes (and skip attempting dessert).

Having eaten at Eden for many years I was disappointed in the food and service tonight. It was my diet choice to entertain new out of town friends and the mistake was mine not having been to Eden in two seasons.

I hope it was just a fluke.

Wasn’t wowed but it wasn’t bad either. Food and service were fine. Not a very personable experience considering two people in our party were celebrating birthdays. I mentioned it to the waiter several times and they asked on the Open Table app for the reason we are dining. Was not a memorable experience and we will probably not come back even though we are locals.

We started eating dinner at Eden 27 years ago. We had a few year hiatus because we were trying other places. We were back last night and the food was just as delicious as it was 27 years ago. We ordered the grilled Romaine salad, the Ribeye and the Chicken Saltimboca with homemade pasta. I wish I had a bigger appetite because there were so many great choices on the menu. Great cocktail selection. My original Margarita was perfect. Great wine selection. Staff welcoming and accommodating on a holiday weekend. We will definitely be back.

Everything about our dining experience was amazing. Outdoor seating on the too level which was just perfect! Waiter was amazing and we never felt rushed to end our dining experience. Cheese platter was just like dining in France. Only complaint was the Creme Brûlée…..I would not order it again. The topping was perfect but the center lacked flavor.
Overall an amazing dining experience in downtown RB! We would highly recommend.
Overall observation for in the future though was if dining inside downstairs was amazing but the second level inside was way too loud maybe due to larger tables but it was even distracting walking through to get to our table outside.

The halibut was cold and had to be sent back twice. Ultimately did not eat it at all.
