    We came to Syracuse specifically to eat at Eden and it did not disappoint. The food and service was unbelievable. We had the grilled halloumi to start and the sunchokes made this dish so tasteful. We both had the strip steak and it was cooked to perfection, so tender and delicious. The cocktails were great as well as the New York State wine. Don’t be afraid to order something you never had.

    Eden is a very cute spot with a great vibe and wonderful service. We were somewhat underwhelmed by the food, unfortunately. The steak dish was pretty good. The chicken was overcooked and tough to get off the bone. It was a relatively small portion and lacked flavor overall. The highlight of the meal was the greens salad and mousse dessert. Perhaps our expectations were too high going in but for the price and quality of food we won’t be rushing back.

    Always a great experience! My husband and I don’t get out on as many dates as we would like to, but when we do get the chance we almost always choose Eden. Food and service is always wonderful. I’m pregnant, and they made me a delicious off the menu mocktail!

    Great concept. Farm to table. Very rustic industrial setting. Nicely done. But the screeching metal chairs on the concrete floor make the dining experience unbearable at times. The presentation of the food was 5 star, but the restaurant was quite cold and the noise was too much for me to plan a return visit

    We stumbled upon this lovely spot before attending a show. The atmosphere was great, our server, Brian, was friendly and knowledgeable. We loved the NY Only by-the-glass wine list, super extensive and inclusive. The Halloumi appetizer was the perfect sweet and savory balance, and the added touches, fresh spinach salad and delicious house made sausage were delicious. But it was the Cappelletti entry that really knocked us off our feet. It's not often you have a dish that is so flavorful, unique and utterly delicious...just fabulous!

    We were super impressed with everything. The quality of the steak was amazing. We had no idea what we were getting into having just found the restaurant on google, because it was near the Oncenter. Can't wait to go back. Only thing that was a little disappointing was the lack of liquor choices.

Such a great niche and understanding of flavors. Highly recommend.

    Service was excellent. They feature as much local as possible, but have recently expanded in some areas (ex:wine). Main course was fab. It's easily a top 5 eatery in Syracuse.

    Eden has a very welcoming vibe, host made us feel very welcome and our table was ready for us on time. We were seated promptly and we were immediately paid attention to by our server, Brian. Serviced all evening was attentive and there menu items were creative with plenty of variety. Quality of the beef, halibut and crab and other ingredients were all of outstanding quality however the menu items we had lacked any interesting flavors (herbs or seasonings). The halloumi salad was a great menu item however the halloumi was way over cooked. Not at all disappointed that we went

    Eden is normally a pretty solid experience, however the tasting menu for Valentine’s Day was somewhat disappointing, and was quite expensive with wine pairings for two people. The normal menu is certainly worth the money, however going there for the special occasion was not worth the $400.

    We had an exceptional experience with the waitstaff, the food was delicious, gratis petite fours, appetizer, and entrees were all delicious visually and by taste. Only one party member had minor comments of the outer edges of their steak being sinuey… but the rest of the meal was flawless. Well balanced flavors and acid base balance was consistent throughout. We enjoyed our time and we would heartily consider dining there again. Toddler friendly evidenced by staff procuring and offering many helpful items like a booster seat, and props for a phone playing a soothing video. Highly recommend.

    I took a friend here to celebrate her accomplishments. It had been a while since I'd been here and I was looking forward to having a quiet catchup conversation. The service was great, the food - as always - was good, but the noise level was almost unbearable. It mostly came from a raucous table where people clearly had had a lot to drink. We almost couldn't hear each other through the evening. Such a shame.

    This is a great spot! My husband and I grabbed dinner here after a performance at the Landmark. Service was attentive and so friendly. We really enjoyed the menu - it’s been well cultivated and, though shorter, is very typical for a farm-to-table spot and highlights/focuses on top-notch, high-quality ingredients. The mushroom toast was such a comforting dish. The flavors are simple, but perfectly balanced. The tenderloin was cooked beautifully. Excellent crust and the crème fraiche was a nice touch. The roasted chicken leg was also wonderfully cooked and seasoned. The couscous was light and a nice pairing with the richness of the chicken, but could use a hint more salt or lemon to brighten it up a bit. We booked our next reservation while we were enjoying our chocolate mousse and the blueberry panna cotta for dessert. Looking forward to coming back again.

    We suggest reserving toward the later part of the evening. When booking our dining experience we had only the option at 5:00 PM. Our server and all of the waitstaff were extremely polite, knowledgeable, and attentive however we were quickly aware that their interest lied in moving us through dinner quickly to accommodate later diners. The food is inventive, delicious, and perfectly prepared and it would have been nice to take the required time to savor and appreciate it. When factoring in the price as well as not having the bottle of wine that we selected in house, the rushed evening left us disappointed’ most especially after hearing such rave reviews.

    We made our reservation for bar seating (reservations are required, even at the bar). The bartender was very attentive to us. I had short ribs and my husband had strip steak. Both were very delicious. Overall experience was good. It is quite pricey. Syracuse does not have too many places that are farm-to-table, though. The portions were perfect. Although I did have to eat a few more bites than I would have wanted. I was quite full. Didn’t seem the place to ask for a ‘doggy bag’ 😂
