Eden is one of our favorite places in Rehoboth Beach. Menu is awesome, and changes frequently, and the food and service quality is always consistently excellent. Perfect for a nice dinner out or a special occasion.

A friend and I decided on Eden to celebrate our birthdays, and we were not disappointed! The staff is very friendly, well-groomed, knowledgeable, and accommodating, and we especially liked our server, Chris. He went out of his way to replace our wine when he discovered the bottle was not at its best. He took our teasing about his good looks with grace and good humor, making two old ladies feel special. The food was exceptional... the proteins (duck and filet mignon) were prepared as perfectly as they possibly could have been. If I had one complaint, it would be the pea tendril salad. It was very hard to eat, as you couldn’t get it on a fork, and the flavor in general was a bit “grassy”. Other than that, the food was amazing.

After all of the years coming to Rehoboth Beach, how did we miss this one? Incredible food, impeccable service, notable wine list, what more could you ask for? The Halibut from the regular menu was delicious. Served with a wonderful risotto and baby Bok Choy base. Other than the fish being slightly over cooked, it was a meal to die for. My wife ordered the special of Arctic Char, served over a spinach orzo that was simply perfect. Needless to say, we both tried each other’s fish . If I had to choose, the Artic Char was best, but my risotto was better than her orzo!
The service was among the best we’ve ever experienced anywhere. Our server, Holly J., was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and a delight to speak with. Her understanding of the processes the chef utilized was a wonderful addition to the evening.
The wine list was very diverse, with many good values. After dinner drinks of single malt Scotch and cognac were quite reasonably priced, and the de-cafe coffee was some of the best we have ever tried.
We will be back!

We ate there the day before Thanksgiving. The setting is wonderful, the food outstanding, service just enough attention and not smothering. Have eaten at Eden many times over the years and have never had a mis-step evening - never.

We went there for our Anniversary and expected to have a wonderful dining experience. The atmosphere was so quaint and charming and the evening started off great.
Our $36 filet was ordered medium but came out well-done. The waiter took it back with no issue. After fifteen minutes, the newly cooked filet could have mooed like a cow it was so rare. To make matters worse, I ordered the grilled Rockfish. After five minutes, the waiter said that it would be pan-seared. That was acceptable but then he came back to inform me that the Rockfish was really Halibut. I was expecting a great filet. When it arrived, it was dry, flakey, and tasteless. In fact the entire meal was tasteless. So disappointing. We could have made a better meal at home on the grill. We will never return. Way over priced.

My girlfriends and I were celebrating our 39th get-together weekend so we are always on the lookout for a good restaurant with excellent food and a nice atmosphere. Eden met all of our expectations. There were five of us and we all have different tastes but everyone was very pleased. The wine recommendation from our excellent waitress was so delicious that we drank a second bottle. The evening was perfect.

We had a very nice meal at Eden. It was a quiet Sunday evening. The server was attentive and responded to all our questions and provided very good recommendations when asked. Food was excellent, portions are generous but not huge. I'm not sure what this restaurant would be like on a crowded Friday or Saturday but we definitely enjoyed our meal, so I would recommend it.

My husband and I loved Eden! I went with the Tuna Poke for starters and the halibut for my entree while my husband went with the Tomato Bisque soup and Ahi Tuna. It was the night of 1/2 off wine bottles so we ordered a red and a white. Dustin, our server, was a trained somalier so he guided us on the best pairings with our food. Wonderful evening!!

It is always refreshing to eat in a restaurant that knows their customers and remembers what they love. We started with a handcrafted cocktail and a beer while chatting with locals and the friendly staff. We were seated on time and started with appetizers. The ceviche was one of the best I have had there, or anywhere, for that matter and the grilled Caesar salad was yummy. We moved on to wine and decided to go by the glass as we each wanted something different. John and Holly both made suggestions throughout the evening and they were spot on. The filet never disappoints and we both chose it for our entrees. The hubby went with sorbet to finish off the meal and I sadly stuck to my diet. The entire evening was perfect from beginning to end, we will be back often!

It was our first experience with this restaurant and we were very excited.We were seated immediately and The waitress was outstanding . She was very knowledgeable about the foods and we had a lot of questions about what we were about to eat. I had my first ever experience with goat cheese and it was amazing. Price was high for the size steaks we received . The steaks weren’t cooked the way we asked and for that one mistake , we weren’t 100% satisfied. The food however was bold and full of flavor. I took home what was left of my steak and let my daughter try it the next day. Even on the next day and reheated she thought it was amazing. Without a doubt , We will be return customers. Thanks for the great night . One more con , not the restaurants fault, the noise from nearby tables talking made it a less that romantic atmosphere as the elegant tables would make you think .

Waiters should be taught that if you order a steak a certain way, the waiter should ask you to cut into it to see if it is prepared the way your ordered it. My waiter came back to the table when we were basically finished our meals. It took way too long to get a first drink and then when ordered a second drink, it showed up at the end of the meal too. Don't these guy and gals know that if you "build" the sale, you will get a bigger tip??

Positive side: great food (when prepared the way your ordered it), very nice atmosphere - but a little noisy.

Sorry Eden, but you have been better in the past.

We were very disappointed in our evening at Eden, especially after reading so many positive reviews on line. We've been visiting Rehoboth for many years and were looking forward to finally giving Eden a try.
After making a reservation several days before, when we arrived, we were offered the best of the worst seats available to choose from.
The wedge salad was not very good. We've had better at many other restaurants. Our main courses, the scallops, and the rockfish special, were both bland and under seasoned. No flavor whatsoever. I can't understand how they've gotten rave reviews.
The cream brûlée was good. The chocolate dessert with a Rice Krispie treat was chocolatey, (good), but strange pairing them together.
The best part of the evening was the attentive wait staff and cocktails.

We have been to Eden many times and always enjoyed it. But this time, on a Saturday evening, was disappointing. Our party of 6 was seated upstairs where an OPPRESIVELY NOISY party of 30-40 made any conversation among us impossible. I could not understand the reason for seating us among this group, when there was a table for 6 available on the much quieter first floor. Finally I confronted the manager and asked to have the table changed, which they agreed to do for us.
The meal was just ok, and thankfully the kids enjoyed their steaks. My son-in-law's venison chop was not up to the standard I had enjoyed several weeks ago, and I was chagrinned having highly recommended it for him. My short ribs were poorly trimmed and tasteless. This meal, might have been worth the $500 which it cost me, if the seating had been more considerate and the food better prepared.
We will think twice, before returning here.
