First our server, Mitzi, was about the most pleasant server we've ever had. Limited outdoor seating but we were able to get one of the three outside tables. We also enjoyed speaking with one of the owners, I think from the east coast of mainland US, and appreciated his drink recommendations. The food was very good. My wife and I... More

This place is fun. The decorations are crazy, with very simple shared long table seating. The bar is definitely the focus. Nice large cocktails and well made. The staff and husband/wife owners seem eager to please and make your visit enjoyable. One note...the floors are wooden and move, so suggest you sit near the back where not as much traffic... More

Despite a very long wait and extremely rude waitress, the food deserves a 5 star review. We had the mussels as an appetizer (super yum) rum punch throughout the night (and we were there for 3 hrs so quite a lot of it), and the 1) chicken stuffed with mushrooms/goat cheese and 2) lobster as entrees. Plus 2 kinds of... More

Red sangria was good. I was able to order something that wasn't seafood because I personally don't like seafood. Rice and beans was awesome. Gnocchi was good.

Dinned here a few times over the years. Food is consistently good. Good staff too. Only open certain days of the week, so call ahead and its very popular with the locals so make a reservation early.

You know when you start eating and just can not stop until plates are empty? This is food from the heart made by the proud owners. The saffron lobster risotto accompanied with a lobster was outstanding. The fresh fish and grape-chorizo risotto also excellent. Pasta also very good. All paired with a good wine selection - unforgettable and will give... More

This is our second time in El Eden and the visit is always excellent. The Lobster Risotto is to die for and the seafood will never disappoint you. The food is up in the fine dining experience but the atmosphere is casual and very relax. The owners are always there making sure your experience is the best and the team... More
