Seriously SO GOOD! Everything we ate pleasantly surprised us. The food was cooked so well and was so simple that it really brought out the talents of the chefs. The baby beet salad may end up in my dreams.

Ambiance and food were spectacular! We also had multiple people wish us a happy anniversary, and they treated us to a dessert (accompanied with a dessert wine) and a card signed by the whole staff. Amazing service and food... will definitely visit again!

We just love this place! My wife and I were thinking of what to do for NYE. Just looking for an early(Nice!) dinner close to home. We had just been to Eden a few weeks prior for a low key date night and I figured it would be the ideal spot. Invited a couple who were looking to do the same thing. Early dinner, great place, head home! Only one of the couple had been before. Once again we were not disappointed! (That sounds odd. Why would we expect to be disappointed? Well, you know what I mean). The food was phenomenal as always. Service was friendly as always. The manger bought one of us a drink because he misunderstood that she wanted another. (Who does that? THAT is knowing how to treat people!) The wait person was extremely patient considering the long night ahead. Bartenders were as helpful as ever. And calm considering we were the first people in. The thing I really want to compliment on are your host people! They set the tone and they always get it right. They smile, they acknowledge you, they're helpful! So many places today don't understand how important those people are! You always get everything right, but I needed to put a little extra emphasis on your host staff!

Eden attends equally to food and environment, producing nothing short of delight. If you haven't tried Eden, Go. You will not regret the experience and will wonder why you hadn't gone sooner.

We went for our anniversary and the waiter was knowledgeable and cool. He brought us a card at the end of the meal signed by the staff. Maybe they have these pre-signed for these types of occasions, but what the hell, still nice. The food was exceptional. The ambiance and decor added to the great experience. Highly recommended. AND there’s parking!!!

On-site free parking lot is a plus, and a distinction from the West Randolph Restaurant Row establishments to the east.

The space is brightly and attractively furnished, not plush, but not spartan, either. Tables are close enough together that you are very aware of all of your neighbors, none of whom were too boisterous during our dinner.

Our service was excellent from the moment we arrived, from the hostess to the bussers, runners, and server. All were personable, attentive, and helpful.

Food was great, including starter and main courses, plus dessert. Cocktails were excellent as well.

Price was less than I might have expected for the quality of the experience.

Each food course was excellent, as were our cocktails.

We were dining early before a Blackhawks game so it was not crowded and if full I'm sure the noise level would be higher but what a fantastic restaurant. Service was great and the food was phenomenal. What a great find. We also found it easy to park and just walked to the United Center only slightly further than any off site parking.

Next time I won't need a game to visit Eden. I was very happy with everything about it.

Great drinks and service. Mostly great food. The portion sizes on the main dishes was extremely small. I had the seafood stew which was a tiny tiny bowl containing bread and 5 mussels. The description said there was also crab and fish in there, but if there was, it was tiny cubes that had the exact flavor and texture of a potato. Rest of the food was delicious!

Second time we’ve been back in a month and we loved trying different dishes on the menu such as the burger and omelette which were fantastic! We were well looked after even with our fussy 18 month old by the entire gracious staff who were very understanding - thank you!

The appetizers were good skip the barratta appetizer definitely get the wild mushroom flatbread.

For the main dish is the branzino was good. The chicken was a perfectly cooked but tasteless chicken. The truffle pasta came swimming in water and was very tasteless. The beef short ribs were nothing special at all.

Why come here again if within three blocks there’s a dozen great restaurants that do a much better job? Very disappointed for my birthday dinner.

What makes a restaurant stand out? I think its creative, inventive and delicious cuisine. The food at Eden was all that. And we had delicious wine and cocktails. Eden is on the western edge of the west loop, near the United Center. It is so cool to see an old industrial building revitalized into such a beautiful space. Come here if you like new experiences.

We were WOWED by the chef’s attention to the amazing flavor combinations and the beautiful plating of each delicious dish served! In particular, we were blown away by the burrata, roasted brussels sprouts, berkshire pork chop and fallin’ apple. I cannot wait to explore more of the menu next time!

Wow! That meal was simply outstanding and the service was unbelievably good. Best dinner we had in Chicago. We had the Burrata, Roasted Mushroom Flatbread, Roasted Baby Beets, Black Truffle Ravioli, Ricotta Herb Gnocchi, and the Crispy Fried Chicken. All of them were amazing, if I had to pick a favorite I think I would go with the flatbread.

Loved, loved Eden! Fresh and amazing ingredients with so many more things to try. We especially loved the buratta, beets, and Branzino dishes. The whole fish was deep fried which made it so incredibly moist and absolutely to die for. Can’t wait to return! Oh... the parking lot, a major plus for us!

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.

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.
