Eden Restaurant and Events
Been here a few times and the food is always outstanding!
Menu was different and on the pricey side
Food was good, live music was nice to see and added to the overall experience. Would like to come back again and try more.
Second time at Eden. Appetizers/Tapas plates were excellent, although one of the appetizers my wife ordered - the Dates - took a long time to prepare and deliver to the table. In fact for last night - we were told that they’d delivered her Dates to the wrong table, elongating the wait. I should note that the restaurant was about half full at the time.
Wife ordered Salmon at my recommendation, which I had first time we were there two months ago. What I ordered then was an excellent piece of fish, properly cooked, right amount of crlspness on the skin, right amount of tenderness/creaminess for the fish itself.
Fast forward to yesterday. Wife’s salmon had a noticable char on the skin - akin to crust on a bread. Upon first glance - I said to myself this is not going to be good. And it wasn’t. The fish itself was quite dry, devoid of moisture. When I sampled it - my comment was that it should never have left the kitchen, somebody wasn’t doing their job monitoring the dishes going out. Given the time of the evening - we simply had them remove the entree from our bill.
We’ll certainly give Eden another try, as the appetizers are wonderful and the entrees can be good.
Perfect weather and location for date night. Loved the porch. The food fell short of our expectations based on the price and reviews.
Food was amazing and the service was fabulous!!!
Food was excellent, ambience very nice sitting outside along the river. Restaurant staff were very nice.
Beautiful evening on riverside screened porch. Food never fails to be wonderful, and service was exceptional!
My friend and I came to see the show and celebrate my birthday. The show, "The Cover Girls" and the food were fabulous!! AND I got a great piece of warm baklava for desert with "Happy Birthday" written on the plate. The owner came by and gave me good wishes and asked how everything was. Such a nice man and a wonderfully clean establishment. I will definitely be back!
Excellent food and atmosphere! I eat here regularly.
Food and service was mediocre. The restaurant was excessively loud even though only 1/3 full. Good quantity of food for price.
We had a wonderful date night. Nice table overlooking the water. Wonderful Lebanese wines, flavorful authentic foods and great service. Thank you!
Always a nice night with dinner at Eden. Thank you!
Started with cocktails, which were very good; bartender gracious and accommodating. Seated on time.
We had the Kofta Meatballs, which were tasty, but a bit dense; Tabouleh, Muhammara were both good. Chicken Skewers and Vegetable Napoleon were very good; Short Ribs a little less so. Patatas Bravas was excellent, a bit spicy, but we like it that way.
There was music, a tad too loud for us.
The owner was very present and talkative; it was obvious many diners were repeat customers. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.
The venue is exceptional. Overall a good experience!
Very friendly. Fantastic service. The food and presentation is excellent. Very enjoyable. Outstanding dining.
The outdoor seating wasn't outdoor - just in a section with glass walls and no fresh air. Despite state law, the manager and many servers were not wearing masks. Two wrong entrees were brought out to our table of four. The guy serving just left in confusion (language issue), we had to "hail" our waitress. We asked our waitress to wear she mask when waiting on us. She said she doesn't wear a mask because she is vaccinated. We pointed out the state law and informed her that two of us are immuno-compromised. Then she wore it only when at our table. Eden cancelled our reservation after we were in the middle of dining, as a no show, probably to avoid a bad review. OpenTable quickly restored our points and allowed us to do a review.
Excellent taste and healthy food.
Food, service, and ambiance were great. Mediterranean spin on on classics. Definitely returning.
Amazing food and setting! The hummus and chicken kabobs were outstanding
The food and ambiance was very good. They also had live entertainment which was a added plus. Only downside was that we requested an indoor table due to the heat and humidity outside and they seated us infront of the door that lead to the patio and was propped open so all the hot air was coming directly to our table.
This is our third visit. A few things stood out enough to share. I could tell my vodka martini was made in a shaker that had a different kind of alcohol. Never pleasant. When we asked for pepper for our salad, took some time to have them bring out a diner style salt and pepper shaker set. No pepper mill? Thought that was just odd for this level of dining. The tapas meatballs and patatas bravas were way too spicy. For me inedible. For my husband who can take ALOT of heat, he broke a sweat. Great salads. Wonderful server and bus/runner staff.
When we arrived, there were 4 elderly people waiting in front of the hostess station. There were two girls working the station and one was on the phone. The 4 elderly people, two of which had mobility issues, were standing and waiting to be helped. The girl continued to talk on the phone for about 3 minutes and the other girl just stood there waiting. Neither were talking to the elderly guests. When the girl finally hung up the phone, she did apologize to the 4 guests and then told the other girl where to seat the group. In the mean time, two other parties had showed up behind us. We had reservations so I gave her my name and she wrote it down on a list. Then, while waiting for the other girl to return (5 minutes), she had to ask for my name again before she could seat us. The girl seating people returned and took us to a table in a non-airconditioned sunroom area. It was 87 degrees that day with high humidity, so no air conditioning was not an option. I asked to be re-seated in the air conditioned part of the restaurant. We were placed 2 seats from the entrance next to the bar.
Ordered sangria and that was very good. Then had charcuterie tray as appetizer but variety and quality was sub-par for $27. Later, ordered 3 tapas choices -- meatballs, saganaki and shrimp scampi (?). Shrimp had a good flavor and were large. The meatballs were dry, and flavor was not as expected. The saganaki was too oily. All in all food was mediocre at best.
It was our first time trying Eden and with lots of options in the area, I'll be eating at those before returning to Eden.
We had a great birthday dinner for my brother here.
If you love Mediterranean please try Eden on the River. Amazing service, great food and live music, beautiful river view. Seriously want to see them succeed!!! Let's help them!!!!
A little pricey but food is great and ambiance.
Our wedding anniversary so a special occasion for us. We were very impressed with the beautiful “porch” on the Fox. Unfortunately, last night was too hot for us to enjoy it.
We hadn’t visit Eden previously but had heard it was good. We decided that it would be a. Better spot for tapas and wine rather than for the entrees.
Our server was Olivia and she was excellent—attentive and helpful with recommendations. The music was very loud; why do restaurants have loud music rather than quieter, more relaxing music?
My wife had the skewers and they were tasty but expensive for two small skewers and rice. I had the “lamb chops” which was more like rack of lamb. Lamb is expensive but again a very small portion for $38.
We also tried desserts.
In the future we will plan to visit there with friends and enjoy tapas and wine. That seems to be the restaurant’s focus.
There was a band so the noise level was higher than usual. The band was good. The food is super. The service was great.
Food was great. Love the simplicity of the decor and atmosphere. Service was good. Timely and friendly.
Food and drinks were amazing as well as staff, very accommodating! Will definitely be back.
Eden had a solid menu, clear Middle Eastern influence. The food was good overall. Outside seating was nice.
We dined on the screened, outdoor patio. Very comfortable setting right on the Fox River. The tapas-style part of the menu appealed to us so we passed on the entre' menu and had several tapas dishes. All were very good. The spinach and cheese stuffed filo dough dish (can't remember the name) was ok but the dough was undercooked. Service was excellent. We'll be back.
The cocktails and music are the best part of this restaurant!
Everything was good, we were seated at our reservation time, at a nice table in the new, screened in room. We were given a nice amount of time to order a cocktail and appetizer, and the our entrees, which were delivered very quickly, and the food was delicious. The entertainment was wonderful as well!
Thank you for the nice evening. Good food and drink.
Amazing food. Great staff. Great atmosphere. Can’t wait to go back.
I had a dinner date with my two daughters and they both said it was the best meal they’ve had this year. So Delicious
The restaurant is so nice . The food is very good and the staffs and service so amazing. I really recommend it
Really tasty food, good beer and wine selections, helpful staff and nice views. Two of us split a small plate (bacon wrapped dates—yum), a dip and one entree. Perfect!
