Eden East Reviews & Ratings
Had an amazing dinner here a few weekends ago, the atmosphere is perfect as long as it’s not too hot and you can also walk around the farm as well. The dishes served are simple and straightforward but everything is incredibly fresh and put together well. It’s also BYOB, which I enjoy because you end up saving a lot of money on wine at dinner!
We went to East Eden for it 1 year wedding anniversary and it was perfect mixture of rustic and romantic! Having the farm right there next to the seating area transports you out of the city limits and takes you country side. Since we went during the evening we had the 4 course dinner and everything was delicious! I will say though, my husband was still wanting more to eat after the dinner since the portion sizes aren't exactly generous but nothing a pit stop at the food truck for slice of pizza didn't fix. I would love to come again and see what the chef has put together for the winter.
Y'alllll, I love this place. I've been a couple times now, both for the full experience, but also for Thursdays on the Farm and I have yet to be disappointed. First off, this is a great date spot. Come around sunset and do a quick walk around the farm before dinner. The full dinner is especially great for a celebration ($$), whereas the Thursday night might be better for a casual night. Second, the food and service is great. All the service staff were super friendly and every dish we tried was delicious, farm to table goodness. No, it's definitely not an all-weather location, but they were nice enough to give us hte option to bail without a charge when a cold evening swept in in early spring. We chose to stay and they provided us with some nice blankets that definitely helped! Oh, and be sure to bring a bottle of wine or cooler as this place is BYOB, and enjoy!
I was really looking forward to our dinner at Eden East, but ended up disappointed. The price of the food didn't even come close to matching the quality of the food. I'll start with the good: The atmosphere is nice. There's a unique feel to the outdoor, small farm style that you can't get at many other restaurants. On a beautiful day, Eden East could be a nice spot for a date or a fancy family get-together. And now the bad: First and foremost, the food quality was far from great. The tenderloin I ordered was so tough that I had to cut it into tiny pieces so I didn't have to spend the whole night chewing. Everything was just a little overly seasoned and, while the flavor choices were certainly unique, everything tasted just a bit off. In particular was the overuse of mint. I love fresh mint, but there's something a little off-putting about having mint in my salad, on my steak, AND in my desert. It made the taste run together. By far the most disappointing part was the freshness of the food. At a farm-to-table restaurant asking for such high prices, I expect every course of the meal to be as fresh as the last. The salad was wonderful, but it only went downhill from there. For desert I had the shortcake, and the tough, chewy texture gave the impression that it had been made the day before and left out. Overall, Eden East is just not worth a visit unless they address the issues with their food quality or lower their prices to match the quality that they're currently capable of. I am aware that this restaurant works out of a limited kitchen with limited, seasonal ingredients, but I've been to similar farm-to-table restaurants elsewhere and have had much better experiences.
Fantastic! Food so local you see where it grew, a creative menu that changes with the seasons but always gives pleasant surprise. All that with free drinks from local brewreys and live music? You can't beat Eden East.
