    This is my second time dining at Eden. The experience is a joy each time, and I long for the opportunity to go back. It is fast becoming my favorite restaurant in Syracuse. The staff is great at attending to you without fawning, and the food is delicate without a hint if pretentiousness.

    I love this restaurant and was very happy to see a good sized weekday crowd. Small, simple and maybe best salad ever - simply exquisite. Hors oeuvres - think of offering a vegetarian option. Brian is lovely and for the bartender to remember me was an amazing, very cool surprise. I will return again and again.

    Eden is one of my favorite restaurants in Syracuse, it never fails to be a great experience. The small menu makes up in quality what it make lack in size. Every step of the meal is well done from the ever changing amuse to the simple but delicious salad, ti whatever entree you choose is well executed.

    "Ruth's Chris prices - grocery store meat." Also, very hot restaurant wear summer clothes there all year! The ny sirloin off the menu was below average for a high quality steak house and unseasoned. Doubtless because of the freshness of the meat. However the drink mixology and service is superb... sit at the bar away from the wood burning ovens.

    Excellent craft cocktails and very attentive bar tender and wait staff. Requests for creative cocktails off menu were happily accommodated - tasted some excellent housemate spirits. Posh/NYC style ambiance. Beet salad app and sirloin were exceptional. Halloumi (sp?) cheese app was a little bland but still very good. The prices are not cheap but you get a reasonable amount of high quality food for what you pay. A fun date night. We will be returning!

    Eden called and informed us the OpenTable app booked us an outdoor table in error. They were implying that they had no service outside, I asked if they would serve us since it was booked for a graduation celebration, they agreed to it, though it seemed reluctantly. We arrived on time and we’re escorted to the front patio where there were several outdoor tables; all tables outside were Unoccupied at 7pm. Immediately the server asked us if we could place the food order as we received our first drinks because the kitchen was “very busy”. We quickly ordered on his advice. Surprisingly our appetizers arrived 5 minutes after putting the order in to a “very busy” kitchen, a palette cleanser arrived a minute after the appetizers. The entree arrived 9 minutes after that. This was an intentional speed service overload at the table by our server. (The server was the one on the phone encouraging us to not keep the reservation). He was determined to ruin the graduation celebration because we kept, in his mind, the questionable reservation. I have never witnessed this psychotic behavior by a lead service person. He tried to apologize but he was not sincere and unconvincing since intentionally slamming the table with all ordered items after 15 minutes of being seated. This is not an exaggeration, we were there for 15 minutes and the table had appetizers, a palette cleanser, and our entree in addition to our first drink order. It was shocking to all 4 of us to say the least. I asked him why he is treating us in this fashion, and was it due to the an OpenTable malfunction, he responded in weird whispers while heavily perspiring. I firmly explained to him his fully intentional behavior cannot be forgiven. The restaurant food was ok, we made the best of it, however, this server just got off the bus from crazy-town.

    The menu was varied and eclectic, from the amuse-bouche of crostini with goat cheese, beet and chive, to the halibut with white bean cassoulet and Daikon radish. Portions were adequate without being overwhelming and left just a bit of room for delectable desserts. Our kid lucked out that there was no kids menu, so they enjoyed the hand made goat cheese tortellini! The tenderloin was also cooked perfectly. The service cannot be overlooked - it was also amazing. I will certainly reserve a table next time I am in Syracuse.

    Another perfect night at Eden!! If you’re looking for a fantastic date night with the perfect atmosphere this is the place to be!! We started with the mussels small plate (not pictured). My fiancé ordered the most tender melt in your mouth chateaubriand cut steak I’ve ever had! I ordered the handmade in house tortellini in a decadent brown butter sauce paired with parsnips 🤤🤤 THEN!!!! The panna cotta 🤤🤤 years of watching food network and I finally tried it and have been missing out this entire time You really couldn’t ask for a more well rounded restaurant… the staff any place would be lucky to have… the food top notch….the drinks(I hope the sommelier never leaves) overall 10/10 keep doing what you’re doing

    Eden is a hidden Gem! Our experience was excellent from beginning to end. Our server, Brian, was friendly and knowledgeable. The bartender was exceptional, and the Chefs were outstanding. Working with only an open fire, these three men created masterpieces! Our meal began with mussels in a broth made from heaven! Next, a delicate plate of baby bib lettuce with a burnt orange dressing and a hint of sea salt let us know we were in store for a memorable meal. My husband had the strip steak topped with a compound butter served with roasted potatoes and a ribbon of Chimichurri Sauce. Presentation and flavor were flawless. My dinner was halibut swimming in a tangy, light pool with white beans and fresh herbs. Delicious! Brian recommended a signature cocktail, The Sleeper. Lets just say, one tasted like two...If you have tried Eden you are missing out on this treasure. I would say reservations are a good idea since the space is rather intimate.
