                    We had a great table with a nice view of the river. It was very quiet because it was at 3:00 for a late lunch. The bottle of red wine we selected was great. We had delicious hummus and pita, spicy meatball, and steak and chicken skewers. We got the fried calamari it wasn’t very good and not crispy. Our service was great and we will come again.

                    We a bit disappointed, didn’t not enjoy the dishes we ordered and drinks were average too. Lamb Shanks - no flavor Chicken Skewers- chicken was ok , rice was dry Veg Napoleon - very very average flavor. Cocktails very sweet Ambiance -superb No complaints on service Overall Not worth the value

                    We had a reservation for 11:00am on a Sunday. At 10:55am, there was absolutely no sign that this restaurant was preparing to open. It turns out that the bartender failed to show up as scheduled. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and server. Preparation of drinks, which were delicious, was a bit slow. When brunch entrees arrived, it was clear that they had been sitting out for awhile. Potatoes (dry, cold, and unseasoned) and spinach frittata (undercooked, cold, and unseasoned) were not worth the $12 price. Portions of both were skimpy. Complimentary red pepper hummus was served. It was fantastic! All and all , a good time was had, but we were disappointed by the tasteless entrees.

                    It was way too loud to hold a conventional. At times we had to sit there because the flamenco dancers foot stomping was crazy loud. The food was good but unlike Lebanese food I'm used to from Dearborn, MI.

                    Short ribs were tasteless, steaks came out cold and server never asked temp on steaks, we were greeted after 10 mins. Place took way too many tables after being understaffed n kitchen backed. Had our reservation at 7 food came out around 8:45. Steaks were comped and had two rounds of free drinks. We didn’t care for the “free food n drinks” we wanted a good first experience. We still tipped out server well. Take care of your staff so your staff can take care of your establishment.

                    Service was really friendly and nice. Good though, both the steak and lamb either had some pieces raw or bloody and was a bland taste. Was pretty disappointed but glad they took half off the price of the food.

                    We were delighted that my hubby and I was given a table close to the river view! We liked the guitar player as well! The baba ganoush, seafood papardelle, and most of all the fried calamari and upside down cake were delicious! I would recommend Eden to anyone and would definitely dine there again.

                    This was our second visit and we really enjoy the ambience of the proximity to the river and the comfort of the room. We enjoyed several tapas and the entrees we had were excellent. Our server was attentive and helpful and I appreciated the generous pour for a martini. Food and drink-wise, it was first rate! We felt the music last night was TOO LOUD! When ome has to speak much louder to communicate with dining companions that means the ambient sound is too loud, especially while enjoying A good meal and conversing with friends. That music seemed more appropriate for a bar, not fine dining. When I mentioned it to a manager she did ask the guitarist to tone it done. He did that a bit. Bottom line, we will enjoy a repeat visit but not if it is also accompanied by loud music. Music should be background, not the mai event. All our best for continued success.

                    This was my and my husband's first time eating at Eden. We wanted to try somewhere different for our date night. We were blown away! The food was absolutely delicious (salmon, beef and chicken skewers, and pumpkin hummus)!! Very flavorful and fresh, just amazing. We had a couple of tasty cocktails as well- cranberry and orange mules. The dessert did not disappoint either- olive oil chocolate mousse cake. Yum!! The staff were all extremely friendly and attentive. Highly recommend Eden and this will become one of our regular date night restaurants!

                    Everything was perfect until the loud mouth woman met a friend and had to share with everyone how it was so great to see her friend and laughed loudly at everything that was said. There are more people in the restaurant so please mind your tone in the future. Other than this, the restaurant was 100% perfect.

                    The service was good, although I would expect it to be a notch quicker given that the place was kind of empty for a Friday night. The Mediterranean style food is decent but not great especially for the price, and the place does not compensate with ambiance. Bottom line: this restaurant is ok, but there are many better offerings in the area, I see no reason to return.

                    Enjoyed the nice setting on the river. Very nice decor inside. Filet was very good but overcooked. Salmon was very good, well cooked and well presented. The live entertainment was excellent and not too loud. The noise level is high. Had a wedding reception going on right next to us which was very noisy. The private events needs to be separated better instead of just using a folding temporary wall. However, very nice restaurant with very good food and service. We will be back for sure.

                    Second time at Eden. Appetizers/Tapas plates were excellent, although one of the appetizers my wife ordered - the Dates - took a long time to prepare and deliver to the table. In fact for last night - we were told that they’d delivered her Dates to the wrong table, elongating the wait. I should note that the restaurant was about half full at the time. Wife ordered Salmon at my recommendation, which I had first time we were there two months ago. What I ordered then was an excellent piece of fish, properly cooked, right amount of crlspness on the skin, right amount of tenderness/creaminess for the fish itself. Fast forward to yesterday. Wife’s salmon had a noticable char on the skin - akin to crust on a bread. Upon first glance - I said to myself this is not going to be good. And it wasn’t. The fish itself was quite dry, devoid of moisture. When I sampled it - my comment was that it should never have left the kitchen, somebody wasn’t doing their job monitoring the dishes going out. Given the time of the evening - we simply had them remove the entree from our bill. We’ll certainly give Eden another try, as the appetizers are wonderful and the entrees can be good.

                    Perfect weather and location for date night. Loved the porch. The food fell short of our expectations based on the price and reviews.

                    My friend and I came to see the show and celebrate my birthday. The show, "The Cover Girls" and the food were fabulous!! AND I got a great piece of warm baklava for desert with "Happy Birthday" written on the plate. The owner came by and gave me good wishes and asked how everything was. Such a nice man and a wonderfully clean establishment. I will definitely be back!

                    Food and service was mediocre. The restaurant was excessively loud even though only 1/3 full. Good quantity of food for price.

                    Started with cocktails, which were very good; bartender gracious and accommodating. Seated on time. We had the Kofta Meatballs, which were tasty, but a bit dense; Tabouleh, Muhammara were both good. Chicken Skewers and Vegetable Napoleon were very good; Short Ribs a little less so. Patatas Bravas was excellent, a bit spicy, but we like it that way. There was music, a tad too loud for us. The owner was very present and talkative; it was obvious many diners were repeat customers. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The venue is exceptional. Overall a good experience!

                    The outdoor seating wasn't outdoor - just in a section with glass walls and no fresh air. Despite state law, the manager and many servers were not wearing masks. Two wrong entrees were brought out to our table of four. The guy serving just left in confusion (language issue), we had to "hail" our waitress. We asked our waitress to wear she mask when waiting on us. She said she doesn't wear a mask because she is vaccinated. We pointed out the state law and informed her that two of us are immuno-compromised. Then she wore it only when at our table. Eden cancelled our reservation after we were in the middle of dining, as a no show, probably to avoid a bad review. OpenTable quickly restored our points and allowed us to do a review.
