All in party had the tasting menu with pairing, which was very enjoyable. It was one of the best tasting menus I have had in Seattle are restaurants. Space is small and fairly intimate, worked well for our party sine there where only three tables during our time in the restaurant. This would be a place I would bring my significant other back to for an intimate/romantic mean.

I can’t recommend Eden Hill and its staff highly enough. We sat at the bar and had wonderful evening. The food was outstanding (especially the short ribs and the cauliflower), the staff were charming and helpful, and the whole night was a highlight of our trip to Seattle. We will definitely be back?

We ordered from the ala carte menu (I sometimes find tasting menus to be just too much food) and it was wonderful. Every single dish was perfect and came out of the kitchen with good timing. I love the small size of this restaurant and how convivial everything felt. Portion sizes were also a little more than we expected based on similar types of restaurants (so we didn't have room for dessert, alas.) Especially recommend the waldorf salad (not usually my favorite salad, but such a good version), the korean oysters, and the braised beef. We'll be back.

As each course arrived I began to contemplate the large number of unique elements contained in each dish... And the care and thoughtfulness within each element... And the seamless way the elements combined to create a magical, flavorful whole... And I thought how nice to have a meal that feeds the mind as well as the body.

Cute place and love the concept, especially for special occasions, but the food wasn't memorable. The flavors didn't wow us and most of the dishes needed a touch of salt or acid; it was good but didn't meet our expectations at the high price point.

The food was so, so good. I can be a bit of a snob. My sweetbreads and pork chip exceeded my expectation. It is a small venue, hence a touch noisy and in winter when the door opens you know. The chef rocks, our waitstaff incredibly attentive. Four longterm girlfriends meet for dinner for times a year. We try to go someplace new but we may have to come back.

I am on a tour of Seattle’s tasting menu restaurants. Would not return to Eden Hill. Paying as much as we did for the tasting menu, we were disappointed in flavors of foods. Service was odd and didn’t make me feel welcome. Originally called to make reservation and was told they were too busy and to do it via Open Table. Should have not gone through the trouble. Had a much better experience at Canlis, Vendemmia, Art of the Table and other tasting menus in Seattle.

Chef's tasting menu is not worth your money. Food is good, portion is not equal to the price you pay. Ordering a la carte would have saved $100 and we would not have had to stop at Dick's drive in for a cheeseburger so we weren't hungry.

Easily among the top restaurants of Seattle and our favorite place to celebrate. The menu changes daily and we are always surprised and delighted by the flavors, creativity, and imagination from this kitchen. The service was great and everyone on the staff, beginning with Chef Max, work to make every visit a friendly special experience.

Eden Hill is a wonderful unique restaurant. The 7-course chef's choice meal was filled with creative presentations and combinations that were perfect gems - pumpkin risotto and shrimp salad; quail and scalloped potatoes; peanut butter ice cream bar on dry ice, and much more. Spreading it out over two hours made sure that we didn't get too full. The waiter was incredibly knowledgeable about wines and all the details of each course. Would definitely go again for a special occasion.

Phenomenal food. We did the 7 course chef's tasting menu and every course was an absolute treat. Loved the crab salad, smoked foie gras (served over incredible local sourdough), and Wagyu "Wellington Katsu" - fried and perfectly crispy. I never write reviews but I needed to here; the food was that good.

Some dishes we likely wouldn't order had we read a description beforehand - which is perfect, because it made them both unexpected and delicious.

Wine pairing was on point, and the pineapple/rum cocktail we ordered was excellent.

We left feeling perfectly satiated and not uncomfortably stuffed. Tasting menu was well worth the treat for a celebratory occasion. Can't wait to come back and try the other menu items.

We did the Chef's tasting menu and it was a great time. It was fun to see what surprise dish was next for us. The dishes were on the small side, however we left totally full. The foie gras cake batter dessert was amazing and the pineapple and spice cocktail was one of the best I've ever had. Next time I would choose to sit at the bar, but the standard seating wasn't too bad.

A very great evening! Would recommend the Chiefs tasting menu. Every course was truly unique and impressive in preparation, presentation, and taste.

Be prepared for a little pricey dinner, served at a slow pace to be enjoyed but worth every penny. Something that was that good is well worth it

A great place for any special occasion or a date night.

We will return soon
