Very please with the food and service. Nice views of the river and easy to park. I would definietly eat here again.
This place is great! It’s a hidden gem. Great food. Great staff. Love the vibe.
Our server Gabriel was fantastic
I was expecting more after reading the reviews. Our waitress was great, but the busboys continually harassed us and would only pick up one plate at a time. The food was ok. Best part was the combination hummus, baba ghanoush appetizer. Veggies that were included with the meal were one thin slice of zucchini, a sixth of green and red pepper. The basmati rice was good. I had the salmon which again was ok. They kept running out of drinks (sangria, coffee). The baklava was small and very stale. I’ll go to Just Kabobs down the street, if I want Mediterranean food.
1st time dining here. Celebrated a birthday and was incredibly enjoyable! Everything was delicious and the staff was very friendly and on top of their game. Now they just need to add pastitsio to the menu and I'll be head over heels!!!
Fresh and delicious food, excellent mojito!!! Fun to dine outside next to river, server was superb👍
Food was not tasty and value was low. Too pricey for the quality of food
The food was excellent! The server could've been more attentive. I asked for a straw 3 times before he brought one. We had to ask for bread. Owner came over and said hello which was very nice. We left before the music started, but I'm sure it was good. Loved sitting by the water. Thought the wine prices were high though.
Confusion over limited table cloices. Did not want a high top. Few tables for 4. Had to be seated next to live entertainment but fortunately we finished just as they finished setting up.
Had a group of 14 set up at the next table with many small children. Our friends enjoyed the bronzino. My kabobs were not as fresh as I thought they would be. Might be worth trying and possibly sitting outside. Even though we had an early reservation we would have had to wait for a table.
We sat outside and it’s just so beautiful there. We all enjoyed our meals. We shared the board appetizer with a variety of hummus and cheese and pita bread. Delicious!
Food was average at best... Kabobs server with one slice of pepper, one slice of squash, and one slice of some other mushy veg... not great. Meat was cooked properly. Appetizers were okay.
We asked for butter and were told the restaurant did not have any?
MANY times a young "helper" came to the table and asked if he could clear our plates while we were clearly still eating???
Always a fun place to go for dinner. Great food and entertainment
The appetizers were better than the entre. I ordered the half chicken, and seemed to be half cooked. Warm at best. Service was slow.
Enjoyed the food. Will be back!
I really enjoyed this place but the live music was way too loud. It was hard to have conversation so I would suggest not amplifying the music. I liked the music a lot and thought the musicians were very talented.
Wrong food order, salads not delivered. Menu is nothing special
Eden on the River never lets us down! The food is fabulous! We didn't come for live music on this last visit but the live music is fantastic! World-class musicians.
Over cooked food, slow service and seemingly understaffed for a Saturday night.
Food is excellent but the service is terrible. If they don't fix it, this place will close like all the others before them in this spot. Such a shame because STC is in need of diverse ethnic cuisines!
We were seated inside and they would drop the dirty dishes in the cart near our table. Very noisy and difficult to carry on a conversation
Sat by the river, the evening was delightful
Sat outside. Great ambiance. Food was great as well, and reasonable. Check it out!
First time eating at this restaurant and it was fantastic. The food is great and on Friday’s, they have live entertainment. We had a great evening! Will definitely go back.
If you want Middle Eastern food ... go! Nice space, great service, perfect location on the river. Great service and fabulous food (authentic Syrian..if you’re not familiar, think halfway between Lebanese/Palestinian and Iranian). Met the owners...wonderful people!!
Great food, great view and we will be back!
Our first time and it was a great experience. I hope they keep it up. We will be back soon.
Nice place for a pleasant evening.
Why the requirement for at least 50 characters. Short and direct works for many people?
We had a wonderful and extremely flavorful dinner right alongside the river! Our first time here- service was great, flavors were amazing, and owner personally stopped at our table. Love the decor and Mediterranean feel. Would love to come back to experience the live entertainment.
The atmosphere was cozy and the food was great. I went to listen to an amazing Brazillian Trio play. The owner even sat in and played some great drums! The waitstaff were some of the best I've met. They were friendly and attentive. I would definitely go back. Highly recommend this place.
First time trying this restaurant but was looking forward to some good Mediterranean food. This place did not disappoint. We had the sampler appetizer, Chicken Shawarma and salad. They were all very very good. I’ve had chicane shawarma many places, but this was the best I’ve tasted. The outside pita was grilled and crispy and the filling was crazy flavorful. Also had their baklava and that was fantastic. All were home-made and very authentic. This is a must to try!
Delicious food, great service, good atmosphere. Enjoyed the appetizer platter.
Food superb, entertainment superb, owner and staff welcoming and attentive...
Recommendation for a family member and the results were outstanding as always!!
We had an early reservation (6 pm) so there was only quiet background music and conversation. The service was prompt and professional. I had the fish and my wife had the kebab. Both were very good.
Everything was perfect!
Eden on the River is overrated and over priced for the quality and portions of food served. If you want great authentic middle eastern food, go to Jamrah in Sycamore. They have much better prices, portions and tastier food at Jamrah. It's well worth the drive and your stomach and wallet will be full after visiting Jamrah. It's family owned, very clean and they have great service.
Our experience at the Eden’s is always amazing.
The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable of the menu.. Mo our waiter was super kind and always there when you needed me.. He greets you with a smile always!
The food was so good and tasted so authentic..
The band was setting up and got the whole restaurant in the mood with dancing and in good spirits!
We love coming to this place because the experience is always superb!
Great staff!! Amazing food and wonderful entertainment!
Can’t wait to use the patio in the Summer!!
This was our third time dining at Eden. They graciously accommodated special menu requests. Owner, wait staff, and even bus boys recognized us and welcomed us back. The food is delicious, service is great. We plan on becoming regulars here!
Omar was great with menu selection. First time and will surely be returning.
