We ate at Eden on a Saturday evening with a reservation for 7 PM. We have eaten there several times before, including weekend lunches.
The food here is consistently excellent, and it was on this occassion. The service was good, though not exceptional. But the noise level was so loud that we had to shout at one another to be heard. It got worse as the meal progressed.
The restaurant manager came over to us at one poing and cheerfully asked whether we were enjoying our dinner. I told him, tactfully, that while the food was excellent, this was our last time to eat here because of the unacceptable noise levels, which i pointed out were ate persistent levels that were harmful to hearing and the need to shout ruined an otherwise excellent dining experience.
He pointed out that they were planning to do something about it which I found ironic since this has been a problem for three years. It is my habit to measure noise levels in restaurants using the app "Soundprint". I took four readings throughout our dinner. See the results at the end of this review.
As we were leaving we spotted people we know and one of them jumped up to say (yell) hello) and commented that this was a great venue if only "we didnt have to scream at one another."
Soundprint results:
7:02 PM Avg. 77 db Max 91 db
7:30 PM Avg. 86 db Max 91 db
7:50 PM Avg. 91 db Max 91 db
8:29 PM Avg. 90 db Max 91 db

The ingredients were fine and the menu is transparent about the Eden's aspirations. But the execution was fairly bland. Also, they steered us to the tasting menu, but the portions are simply enormous. They don't modulate down the size of a plate when they make into part of a five course meal.

Chef Bryan and our waitress guided us through the menu and helped us pick the perfect meal for our dinner! The food was delicious and everyone was super friendly. We got a birthday card signed by the staff and a piece of cake at there end of our meal

Great food. Amazing service. Beautiful room. However Aerosmith and Thin Lizzy (while both awesome) wouldn’t have been my first choice of music.

A gastronomic feast! I had the Tasting Menu with the wine pairing while my friend had the Vegetarian Tasting Menu (which is a nice option). Both were incredibly well prepared, with just the right blend of flavors. Each course was beautifully presented as well. The wine pairings were excellent, not too heavy and perfect for each corse. The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. I must say that the food, service, and pairings were equal to or better than those of a 3 Star restaurant which we recently attended in Chicago. Eden is definitely one of my top picks for restaurants.

We were seated immediately and moved to a quieter area without any problem. The service is very efficient and anyone can add or modify your order with no difficulty.
The menu for brunch is short but varied enough so you don’t feel stifled.
Our food was great tasting and beautifully presented. This place is an out-the-way gem with its own parking lot.

Food was excellent, ingredients tasted fresh and had good presentation. Very nice atmosphere and ambience. The service was spotty at times, as it took awhile for us to get our orders in and receive some items.

This was my fifth time to Eden, but first in over a year. Had a great experience with the food the last few times, but this time the taste just was not there, not even for a single item. I'm not sure what went wrong but something in the taste department was definitely lacking, which is a pity at a restaurant on the higher end of the price spectrum.

We loved our drinks. I had a Pisco drink that was so good my husband actually switched over to having one as well. We had to get the bread and it was delicious, then we had Brussels sprouts which were a little different than the typical and were very good. We had the hamachi which was light and refreshing and my husband begged to get the fried chicken and under the influence of two drinks I went along and it was really delicious. Then we had to run. Service was quick and efficient.

First of all, Eden has their own parking lot. In Chicago this is a huge deal. Yea! They also have a green house. We loved the food, atmosphere, and service. The Berkshire pork was the best I had ever had. The plates were presented beautifully. My dining mates loved the the 2 swordfish and tamale entrees. The bread is so good. The Burrata was my favorite starter. Ian, our waiter, was so personable and gracious. My only critique was the noise level made it hard to converse. I really look forward to returning and trying other dishes on the menu.

We thought Eden was a gorgeous venue, perfect for a date night or small group dinner. The wait staff was beyond helpful and kind and we thought the restaurant really went the extra mile to make sure my husband and I enjoyed our meal. We will definitely be back - and next time hopefully with others who have never experienced Eden yet!

Simply Amazing. We had a party of 7 for my boyfriend's dinner and had a private room. The food was top notch and the service was incredible. Each person in the party tried something different from the menu and everyone really enjoyed their dish. The staff goes above and beyond to make the experience memorable. We will be back for sure!

This was our second visit to Eden. The broccoli spaetzle was great, and reflects the unique combinations of flavors typical at Eden. My husband particularly enjoyed his steak, with herb sauce and figs. We were blown away by the unassuming yet tremendous service, from the hostess who sat us to the busser who offered to get more hot water for my teapot.

Second visit to this great restaurant- everything was outstanding but MOST especially the new Swordfish dish- it was incredible.
Service is always excellent- Chef Devon Quinn always attentive and explains what is in every dish- price VERY reasonable for the quality of food- the taste and the presentation.
He is top notch! Will definitely be back!

Excellent fine dining food that was also fun. Entree portion sizes were large. With fine dining, I'm sometimes hungry after the meal. That did not happen here. Fine dining options with great herbs from their onsite greenhouse. You can tour the greenhouse. The menu was fun. Fine dinning choices and they also had french fries with different dipping sauces. Great choices on the menu to be healthy, vegan, or have meat and fries as you see fit. Wine recommendations were excellent. The room is very loud. Service was a bit slow a few times yet was very friendly. Overall I really enjoyed the meal. It was a fun experience. I'll be back.

They say they use fresh, local ingredients and they do! You can taste the difference. Service start to finish was excellent. Our server was very gracious and accommodating with my dietary restriction. Interior has a worldly yet peaceful vibe and we enjoyed reading more about it in the drink menu. Speaking of drinks, try the one with earl gray tea! In sum...highly recommend!

Really incredible food with equally incredible service, had an amazing night out for celebration and it was an incredible value with top notch service. They apparently have brunch which I can’t wait to try but they had a truly amazing wait staff and service coupled with local amazing food options. I can’t recommend this place enough.

Great vegetarian options and the chess pie was so delicious. And they have parking which is so hard to find in the city. The Albarino white wine was delicious. Great service. I went for dinner but I bet it's great for lunch. It was my birthday and they gave me a card signed by the staff which speaks to the thoughtfulness I noticed throughout the meal. It would be great for a date or a girls' lunch/dinner. I don't think it would be great for families with small children.
