    The restaurant, food, staff and ambience are all first rate. It's farm to table fine dining at its very best. Highly recommended. Our only minor 'criticism' stems from the fact that online menu prices for main courses did not match up with in restaurant pricing in some cases, which was greater. Also, the suggested tip amounts were based on the total taxed amount rather than the total untaxed amount before taxes.

    Cool spot and the food was good.....expensive appetizers and entrees and while the food was good, I left hungry. Portions were on the small size for the price. Don't think I would return

    An enjoyable , high quality meal featuring local/NYS ingredients & NY drink choices. Service was professional & attentive, but calm & friendly. For many this not inexpensive meal would be a special occasion & not really a “value”, but for the quality level the cost is fair. Unique, not really anything else like it in Syracuse.

    This was an interesting experience to say the least. My girlfriend and I have been to Eden several times. Generally the food is excellent and the atmosphere is unique. When spending the money at an upscale establishment such as this (it's not inexpensive), one would expect not to be rushed. After an appetizer, dinner, desserts and while enjoying a cocktail, we were confronted with "I have a problem. I need a table and it would help if you could move to the bar. Or you can just stay here." Very strange and unusual that this problem was suddenly thrust into our lap. Why couldn't the maitre d'/waiter have offered the incoming guests a seat at the bar instead? I'm sure there were other solutions, but this is one that immediately came to mind.. Feeling awkward and pressured, we decided to move to the bar. We finished our drink, paid and left, with our perception of a once favorite establishment now tarnished. The food at Eden is exceptional and in many cases exquisite. The atmosphere/ambiance is inviting and very cozy. The service needs refinement in order to reflect these attributes and to allow the place to truly flourish. We used to go here as a treat on a limited basis. We won't be returning for some time.

    Once again dined at Eden and the experience was amazing as usual. Food was prepared perfectly and service was beyond comparison. Excellent staff from front to back with not a thing to complain about. Small plates as well as large plates left us completely satisfied and the chocolate mousse dessert was so so good. Wine menu is so extensive it is hard to choose from the wonderful choices. One of the best meals we have had in a long while. Wonderful!!

    Very limited menu - 4 starters to pick from, 4 or 5 main courses, and only NYS wines (which I don’t prefer). The food was prepared very well and delicious but the limited options will keep me from returning often. Surprisingly there are no salad or side options we could order. We were served a salad before the meal which was a small plate of Bibb lettuce with vinaigrette. After waiting a bit for our food, the lettuce was brought out maybe a minute before our entrees, requiring I push it to the side and finish eating it after my main course. Also the comes right into the restaurant, maybe just a few feet from our table, so it was very loud with the group that was in there. I know people love it here but it’s not for me.

    We went out to celebrate with our friends who are moving out of state. My friends one request before she moved was to eat at Eden and have the steak. We did just that!! The ambiance, food and service were all wonderful! Brian, our server, took great care of us! We love coming here for a great meal and wonderful service!

    Our server Tyler was prompt, professional, polite and knowledgeable. He had a great understanding of the menu and ingredients and had well timed table touches. The food was great. There were a few minor things we noticed that could have upgraded us to 5 stars. Although the poached egg on the mushroom toast was over cooked and had a hard yolk, it was still our favorite dish. The oysters with the lemon ice went hard! We loved adding some bone marrow to our oysters! Our filet was cooked medium, not medium rare as we ordered but the buttery potatoes redeemed the dish. The lighting was abrasive at our table in the lower level seating, and there was no background music until our evening was almost over. We would have loved a little background music and the lights to me dimmed to match the smoky and sultry setting. The cocktails were outstanding. The clarified gimlet was a shining star but we enjoyed all of them equally.

    It is hard to find at night because there is only a small sign on the door and it is very small but that is part of what makes it great. The food is unique and delicious and the cocktails were great too. Small menu but everything we had was delicious- especially the steak and chocolate mousse.

    Superlative. Possibly the best Restuarant I have ever eaten in. —Service was exemplary. —Located in what was a scenic town center. Made for some pleasant walking after diner to view the monuments, fountain, and an entertaining mine. No graffiti. Pleasant. Entrance was small. —Bartender definitely the most entertaining I’ve ever witnessed. This guy has tremendous style/flair. He made me want to order a mixed drink—which I never order. And didn’t last night either. —Wine: A bit pricey, but good. Extensive menu. We chose one of the least expensive reds: Cabernet Franco for $50. Very nice. Split this bottle with the couple who came with us. —Food. This is where they really nailed it. The Eden team is a well oiled machine. Everyone working together to put on a top notch experience. Style and flair was evident everywhere. Started with the complimentary bread bites. Very impressive. Ordered a tasty cucumber salad ($18) that also stood out as “not your ordinary salad.” Full of Colors—great presentation. Perfectly dressed. All four of us were served a delicious and perfectly dressed small house salad that came with our entrees Followed by an 8 oz tenderloin (medium rare—I added mushrooms) that was nothing short of outstanding. Came with smashed potatoes, and a smattering of vegetables and sauce. The perfect plate. $60 My wife had the halibut in a bed of delicious chickpeas. She was very pleased, but liked my plate better. Two choices for dessert. (Had to see what they would do next!) We chose the chocolate moose. An excellent dish—good to split, and very good presentation lol everything else. $180 + a generous tip made for an expensive evening but I would go back several times a year if they were in my town—and my wallet feeling flush. Great experience. If you watch food shows—THIS is what the competing chefs are attempting to do. Also—a rather heathy way of cooking. Felt good. Not loaded with guilt. Ten Stars and my highest review ever for Eden. Reserve!

    Had a yummy dinner here with me and my friends. We enjoyed all the appetizers and ordered everything off the app menu as we wanted to have a light dinner. Thought the apps were kind of repetitive as they were all served with some sort of the same bread/crostini. It’s good but didn’t think all dishes needed it! The server was alright, he was kind of annoying and joked about eating our oysters and told us it came with 6. we actually got 5 oysters and was questioning if he really did eat one but he said he didn’t.. would come back again and try their entrees and steaks. Perfect for date night here and dinner with your friends

    One of the absolutely best meals I have ever had in a restaurant. Great concept restaurant for farm to table local vendors. We had a reservation for four and tried one of each of the large plates and had 3 of the small plates and all were absolutely perfectly cooked and so delicious. The mushrooms on toast points was so good everyone wanted more. The buratta was delicious and the tomato and cucumber salad was so fresh and delightful. The steak was cooked to perfection with an amazing chimi churri and the halibut was divine with a perfectly paired chick pea salad. The pasta which was so unique was beyond compare. Chicken was so tasty and beautifully prepared. We enjoyed a wonderful bottle of Semi-dry Reisling by Herman J Weimer winery which satisfied palettes from sweet to dry. And can I just say that the desserts will surely satisfy the sweet tooth in us all. Chocolate mousse paired with whipped cream mandarins with the most amazing brittle and their own personal in-house prepared short bread rivals the best sold anywhere. The service is on point and maintains a professional yet very friendly vibe. Our server Tyler did an excellent job and Noah behind the bar even prepared a special lemonade for us from scratch which was really tasty. Will definitely return to this restaurant often as there are always new and wonderful surprises on the menu. Bravo! Chefs take a bow!
