“Once in a lifetime meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We had an extraordinary meal at Eden. The staff refer to you by name and make you feel very special. Each course was fantastic - most memorable were the foie gras "lollipops" on a real smoldering log, and the savoury high tea with thyme broth. The kitchen works some wonderful alchemy with all of the dishes. Very special. We had the wine pairing with each course which was lovely. Great view out of the huge windows of the setting sun and the mountain peaks. Cozy, quiet atmosphere. As we left we were given a gift bag with some fresh baked banana bread to take with us! Lovely touch.

“What a 'Joy'!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We were absolutely enthralled with this place, the views were stunning, the service amazing. It really was a total dining 'experience'. We were served by at least eight staff members who were both professional and highly engaging/ entertaining. Thank you Gustavo for the welcome, Julie, Julian, Gabrielle, Christopher, Chad, etc for such warm hearted service, sorry if we left anyone out. There were so many nice touches where they went above and beyond expectations. Thank you for such a memorable experience. Hopefully we will be back again soon.

“12 yr. Anniversary Celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Well, it was worth every penny. We each had the chef selection with wine pairing. The 11 course meal was fantastic, wine servings were geneous and the service (Chris Joy) was excellent. We are by no means wine afficiandos adn quite casual diners and the server was in tune with us and waited on us appropriately.

Over the top but hey - you only have one 12 year anniversary!

“Service and food is outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We went to Eden to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We expected the service and food to be incredible based on what we had heard, but had not expected the food flavors to come alive in our mouths. It was so amazing to experience my tastebuds literally 'popping' awake!
We started with champagne and did wine parings during the meal. They were wonderful and enhanced the flavor of every course. If you can splurge, this is worth it.

“Fantastic and deliciously outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I chose Eden to celebrate my birthday this weekend and we couldn't be happier that we did so. They called me a couple of hours before our reservation time to confirm the reservation and when it told them I was sensitive to gluten they told me the chef would be able to accommodate that to anydish on the menu. We have eaten in great restaurants but eden surprised us. The service, the food and the ambience were outstanding. We felt being taken care of without feeling overwhelmed with attention. The dishes had an exquisite combination of flavors and a impeccable presentation. They provide us treatsthrough all the courses and even gave me happy birthday desert. It has become my favorite restaurant.
