Our server was friendly and attentive. Our drinks were absolutely delicious, as was our food. I definitely recommend the steak! If only we had left room for dessert...

Have been meaning to go here for a while and so glad we did. Service amazing and food was 5 stars. Great creations and flavors and the wood burning grill smell adds to great ambiance.

Eden is heaven on earth! I have been a few times and I have never been disappointed. This night I brought two friends who had never been before and it was such a joy to watch them enjoy t as much as I. One friend is gluten-free and they made changes to meet her dietary necessity.

The chef, Rich Strub, had made a delicious tomato sauce to accompany the sweet corn ravioli with its kale & goat cheese. The sauce on its own is outstanding, but as the goat cheese mixed with the sauce, it was so silky and took on a whole new flavour. It was so satisfying. For dessert they served grilled nectarines over a honey-covered puffed rice with Chantilly cream. I'm not sure what herb was used, but this was a very refined dessert.

From the friendly and professional service throughout from James and Brian to the incredible food profiles coming from the kitchen, Eden is THE place to visit again and again and again.

Birthday dinner. Lovely dinner outside. We had the entire menu and it was all great. Would be a very limited menu for very picky or narrow diners- but for us it was fabulous. Was fun to eat in the middle of downtown on a quiet city park ambiance!

Sculpted food that tells a story of the ingredients. Cooked perfectly and flavors are well thought out. Service was good, but we waited 45 minutes before we ordered. Might be due to COVID, but still.

The cocktail was tasty, though it could have used a bit more bourbon. The wine Tokai (or Tokay) was good after some of the hard chill dissipated. The entree, hangar steak, was quite good. Eden is a good restaurant...unique to this town.

One of the best finds in Syracuse - a real hidden gem that instantly became a new favorite! Farm to table never looked or tasted so good and I highly recommend giving Eden a try. Indoors or outdoors you are sure to have a memorable experience!

We sat inside on a beautiful evening. All precautions were taken by patrons and staff to maintain safety. Wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable, providing recommendations for drinks and entrees. Food was delicious, with just the right portions and all flavors blending well together. Drinks were fabulous! Love the farm to table concept and use of local products.

The atmosphere is relaxing while still being upbeat. Very visually pleasing inside and the smell of the wood-fired grill is incredible. The freshness and the flavors of the food are perfect. One of if not the best meal I've ever had in Syracuse as a life-long resident. This was my first time and I will make it a regular experience going forward.

We had an excellent dinner at Eden in Syracuse with dishes made with farm-to-table ingredients. The chicken with baba ghanoush was excellent as was the pasta dish. We will definitely come back!

Everything was great, and the food was quite delicious! We enjoy supporting local restaurants that get their ingredients from farms all over NYS, and this restaurant is raising the bar on the term “farm to table.” Plus the cocktails were spot on too!

Thank you for making our anniversary a great evening.

Cheers

Eden has become one of our favorite restaurants. We love how they use locally grown products to create innovative and delicious meals with a clean eating emphasis, definitely more healthy than the fried and calorie laden sauces of many other restaurants. James, our waiter, is the best!! His recommendations have never let us down. Loved the outdoor seating, feels more European.

Found out about Eden kind of by chance and decided to try it. So glad we did. Impressed with the food as well as the service. Sat at the bar. Bartender attentive but not overbearing. We order drinks, and he was very accommodating to the fact we were talking and didn’t order food for awhile. Once we did the food was unique and outstanding. Had a few small plates. Was a decent amount of food. Will be back!

Where do I start? We had an early dinner here and everything was top notch. We were greeted promptly, hung up our coats and seated promptly. Without going into detail everything we had was wonderful. Warm beet salad, cast iron roasted chicken, flank steak, and rice pudding with frozen orange and caramel popcorn was the order of the night for us. Everything was cooked to perfection and full of flavor.

The ambiance was great. As soon as you walk in the smells from the wood fired grill invite you to sit and dine. Our waiter, Brian was great! He did a great job presenting the menu, making sure we had everything we wanted and just being enjoyable to be around. Actually all the staff we interacted with were wonderful. Pricing is not cheap but was worth everything we paid. We walked out after having a nice leisurely meal feeling refreshed and relaxed. Looking forward to our next visit.

Our dinner was excellent and our waiter James was great. We enjoyed some nice wines, we had three appetizers; scallops, salmon and beef carpaccio, all were excellent. Our entrees included the short ribs, the salmon and the flank steak. All were very good and everyone enjoyed the meal. Its my 4th time there and we'll definitely be back!!

First time at fairly new place. Food was inventive and delicious. More like NYC fare than typical offerings in CNY. Server was friendly, helpful and attentive. Ambience is OK but a bit ordinary commercial. Hope they are a success. Nice addition to the local options. Likely to return.

Fantastic new American cuisine cooked entirely in a wood fired kitchen! The kitchen is totally open at the end of the restaurant so you can see the chefs work their magic. Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Just a wonderful experience! I’m so happy to have places like this is Syracuse!
