    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

    Wonderful experience with my wife. Went for her birthday and wrote it here, but there was no birthday song or anything special. We had a great time and I forgot to remind them. Next time. Otherwise, it’s still 5 stars!

    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.

    I really wanted to like this place. We ordered steak, chicken and duck - all of which were overcooked. The apps were fine. I wouldn’t go back - it’s not worth the very high prices. Try somewhere else.

    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’ 😂

    It was a very need place. One thing that I would appreciate is that there would be a market value price under the meat choices. We were thinking it would be the list price and it was $121.00 for the meal. There was nothing stating a market value. There was also a draft and I never took my coat off. The people were very nice and friendly and the food was very good.

    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.

    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!!

    The food was outstanding. They don’t have a big menu but we had the halibut and the rib eye steak and they were both excellent. The service was excellent and we loved the warm and friendly atmosphere.
