To ought my wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Eden and they did not disappoint. As always, we were greeted by James and his wonderful personality. As always, the menu was meticulously crafted and if you don’t get the mushroom toast or goat cheese tortellini you are missing out. The grilled halloumi all and mussels entree was also incredible. Eden is a must visit in Syracuse and I am quite certain it is the best spot in the city. Cannot wait for our next visit.

Terrific food, well presented. Attentive service, maybe a tad slow.
Quite noisy, hard to chat with our party. Will be back in any case.

This was our first meal out as a family in a long time. The food, cocktails, and service were excellent. My picky eater some enjoyed the chicken and the rest of us were very pleased as well. The simple salad of butter lettuce with a tangy vinaigrette really highlighted the Eden style.

Great Concept - Poor Kitchen Execution -

Food not cooked to requested temperature - well done delivered - medium rare requested - mussels poorly prepared served mealy.

Simple things to get right.

Positives - the chicken was great and the octopus was the best I’ve ever had.

This is now becoming our "go to" place... LOVE the atmosphere, the intimacy of it and the wood/brick interior with visible wood-fired-oven culinary area; love the funky, casual ambience...Oh! And the food is AMAZING.

Have dined here many times now and tho the menu is minimal, each item is exquisite, beautifully presented and incorporates variables each time I’ve had them. The diner is never bored here. So much creativity is imbued in each offering.

Staff - James and Brian - are so warm, friendly, accommodating…kind and fun! Keenan, behind the bar, knows his stuff and cares that you get something you love.

Bravo to owners and chefs here who make great food and teach smart, healthy and sustainable practices.

All food was meticulously prepared, fresh and delicious. There are only four entrees but this allows the chefs to craft each dish with care. The salad made us rethink our salads at home - so simple and yet so remarkable. The restaurant is small so there is a lot of individual attention from the wait staff. Our waiter was able to suggest a wine suited to my individual taste. Wines like ingredients are locally sourced and I could clearly see NY whiskey behind the bar too. I have lived in Syracuse for 27 years now and have been pursuing great food. There are some excellent restaurants but this one is tops.

We have visited Eden many times, and it just keeps getting better. We didn’t know that was possible! The new bartender is a gem. New wait staff are awesome. And of course, we always love to see Rich and James. Ever thankful for Eden’s delicious food, stellar company, dedication to sourcing locally, and being genuinely good people.

Food was everything I had been told to expect. Perfect. The attention to detail was not present in some house keeping areas. The piece of bread and pumpkin on the kitchen's serving are was distracting. The shelf with cleaning supplies behind my table was distracting. Our server was great. He upsold me and didn't mind at all because his recommendation was on point. Take care of the housekeeping issue and this a pretty awesome restaurant.

We ate our way thru about half of the menu items and each dish was beautiful in both flavours and presentation. Really thoughtful, creative and delicious combinations.
Staff were warm, generous with recommendations and gave great advice on pairings.
Atmosphere is vibrant, cool, sophisticated, friendly and the music playlist was great.

One of the top restaurants in Syracuse.

My husband and I dined for the first time at Eden last Friday night. The quality, creativity, flavor and presentation of the food was out of this world. The ambience is very relaxed and uncomplicated. We absolutely loved every dish we got and our service was attentive and consistent. I love that you can watch your locally sourced food being prepared and the smell of the place was intoxicating. We had cocktails and wine and they were good as well. We will place Eden among our list of local favorites.
