EDEN EAST Ratings and Reviews
We went to Eden East to celebrate a bachelorette weekend. The food was amazing (foodie-friend approved!) and the atmosphere was so beautiful. We walked the grounds with spicy cocktails in hand. Our waiter, Mark, was very accommodating and helpful...not to mention entertaining! The experience was so special and I recommend going here for a special event or romantic evening.
Hubs and I escaped the kiddos for a lovely dinner out and we decided to try Eden East. It was a good choice. It's a bit pricey, $70 for a 5 course, prix fixe meal, but they do include complimentary cocktails and they do allow you to bring your own wine or beer. The food is all local (or as local as it can be) and it was really delicious. The only course that we didn't like was the dessert. It was supposed to be a citrus creme brulee, but it was not creme brulee. The texture was more like jello... it was just wrong. But it had a yummy sauce and some fresh figs which were delicious. Also, I had a cocktail and it was really good as well. We were afraid it would be hot, being July 1, but it's totally shaded and they have fans. There was a nice breeze, so we weren't hot at all. I did put on bug spray before I left, and I was glad as there were lots of mosquitoes. We would definitely go again! It's so beautiful, quiet and romantic. It was the perfect place for a quiet date night.
Eden East has never be less than amazing. The freshest meal I've had in Austin. You can literally walk amongst the garden that you'll be eating from. Your meal is served at your own pace, whether it takes one hour or three. They are also very conscious of dietary restrictions, and they don't skimp on the vegetarian portions by simply removing the meat. Every course is perfectly crafted and portioned just right so you're always left wanting just one more bite. Bring your own wine and share a glass with your server!
I have enjoyed some of the country's finest restaurants and my experience at Eden East was definitely unique and surprisingly delightful. The super fresh ingredients, magical evening weather, very attentive staff, and delicious meal made my visit with my time with my family very special. Thank you Eden East!!
this was our second time we came to dinner. Our first experience was fantastic....loved the fun, the place the experience as well as the group with us. this time we were all disappointed with the food amount. first time, about 6 months ago, the plates were plentiful with a very reasonable price, now the prices have gone up dramatically and the quantity of food has dropped dramatically as well. I felt I needed to go home and have a meal to be satisfied. this was mine and others in the group feelings. we all love eden east, love your space and what you stand for. I am in total support, but not sure if I will return or recommend with out my hesitation. I m sorry about that.
We really loved the setting, the service was very good and friendly. We ordered the vegetarian menu, which meant we got everything but the protein, somewhat typical of many restaurants, but a little disappointing at this price point. Vegetarians need protein, too… Would probably be a great place to come with a small group of people.
We celebrated my big 4-0 birthday at Eden East and had a wonderful evening! From the beautiful outdoor setting at Springdale Farm to the outstanding seasonal menu and the airstream bar featuring free cocktails from Deep Eddy, it was a great night! I would highly recommend Eden East for a unique dining spot wtih friends or a romantic night for two.
What an interesting restaurant... more like a destination... it is certain each time they are open, the environment will be unique together with the menu!... it is like a big picnic with friends, but the food is made on site by a wonderful group of people and served by a fantastic staff... without any ants! If you enjoy a well paced 5 course gourmet meal, explained in complete detail by the staff, then this place is the destination for you! Make sure you check the menu before bringing your wine for pairing, but other than that, just enjoy the experience!!! Could not have had a better time, it was exceptional!!!! (OK, it was a tad warm but when dining under the stars, you get what you get that day). Hope they add a Sunday brunch!
Yes, farm to table, but this place is more. It's a quaint gem nestled in East Austin with great service, atmosphere, food and information. We dined with several food allergies in or group and they were very accommodating. Fresh makes a difference and at East Eden they properly show you how much of a difference. Menu is limited so picky eaters beware but do try... Will be back there very soon and taking out of towners any chance we get. Oh! And they have a farmers market twice a week.
Eden East was the most charming place I've ever eaten. The only reason I gave the food four stars is because the fish in our main course was a tad undercooked. The waittress assured us it was cooked through but it was mushy/raw in the middle so we weren't sure! Otherwise, the food was perfection, the ambience was charming and unique, and the wait staff was wonderful and attentive. I would recommend to anyone celebrating a special occasion, girls night, or just a romantic date with your significant other!
The entire experience was fabulous, from the marvelous cocktails we sipped as we wandered the farm and unwound, to the fabulous dinner courses, and the company of new friends seated next to us at the picnic table. I am not from Austin, but will return if for no other reason than to bring my family back to enjoy dinner at Eden East.
The food was unique and much more approachable than I expected from reading the ingredients. Sharing space with others at the table created a communal, European dining atmosphere. Being able to walk around the property and explore was a much more enjoyable way to bookend dinner than your typical car to table to car experience. I'll definitely go to Eden East again and bring friends!
The ambiance, music and farm space made fore a beautiful dining experience. The staff were on top of everything, approachable, funny and made the experience all the more relaxing. We never wanted for anything, and they even allowed us to slow down the courses so we could continue conversation under such lovely hickory trees. The queer thing was the food was the low point (except that fig panna cotta, wow!) and that "low point" was still 4 out of 5.
This was our second visit to Eden East and we know we will return again.
If you are looking for a unique dining experience, featuring farm to table ingredients, imaginative food in a beautiful setting Eden East is the place for you. The friendly and knowledgeable wait staff add to the overall experience.
For those who know and enjoy excellent food and food prep, you will love end East. For those who simply appreciate really good food in a lovely setting, put Eden East into your mix.
Eden East is a lovely setting to celebrate a special occasion.
We ate here last weekend and had a great time. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. We arrived early to walk around their lovely farm and have a cocktail, it feels like another world.
One small hiccup, some of the dishes didn't totally make sense. For example, dessert was described as a ice cream sandwich, but the presentation was a single cookie with ice cream and nuts on top. I understand taking an expectation and putting a twist on it, but a sandwich has pretty clear components, so I'm not sure it worked. But I am open to the idea that the dish was exactly as conceived and I just didn't understand it.
Anyways, overall we loved it, would recommend the experience to anyone and will definitely come again.
This place is so unique it's hard to categorize in a way that will truly convey how magical it is. Everything about it feels ultra hip and of-the-moment without for one unite being forced, fake, pretentious, full of itself. It is a genuine expression of talent, passion and creativity. An absolute MUST in Austin. And make sure to buy some produce on the way out.
We were a group of four friends celebrating birthdays. We loved taking a walk around the farm with a cocktail prior to dinner. The meal was excellent, very fresh and flavorful. We were not rushed but didn't have to wait too long between courses either. Service was impeccable, helpful but let us chat and enjoy ourselves. I definitely plan to go again!
I really enjoyed this dining experience because it is just that - a beautiful dining experience. Outside, under the trees and the stars, communal tables (but don't worry you're not eating family style or something like that), BYOB, Charming, charming wait staff that seem to really love being there, and good food as well...can't beat that. I won't go into much on what it's like because you can find that on-line, I will give a few reminders. Summer - mosquitos (prepare!), Summer - red wine should not be 76F (prepare!), Heels - ok but no spikey heels ladies, it's grass, Skirts and dresses - remember, you may have to get in and out of a picnic bench in the middle! Again, it is lovely but be prepared.
We enjoyed the ambiance and the food! This was recommended by a chef friend in Arkansas. I'm not usually comfortable with sitting alongside strangers, but the outdoor atmosphere was so comfortable, we had a great time sitting on the family style tables! Food was outstanding!
This place was like no other dining experience. The food is all farm to table and so fresh and delicious. We all loved everything but the dessert. Even though it was a 5 course pre fix menu the portion sizes were perfect. It was great eating outdoors but it was a rather warm evening. I wouldn't suggest this for kids or picky eaters but definitely good for foodies.
The venue, meal and staff were all perfect. Relaxed and casual setting, dine outside in style while enjoying your own beverage (BYOB) or tastey Deep Eddy Vodka drinks they show cased that evening. Great for a romantic dinner for two and since you dine family style it would be fun to book a whole table or possibly the whole place. Definitely a must visit.
Imagine fine dining under the stars and trees....that is Eden East. The five course meal was more than expected and everything tasted like it had just been picked! You can even take a walk thru the farm after dinner. A couple of helps: 1) It's a farm....dress accordingly and 2) BYOB. Very unique experience. Highly recommend for an out-of-the-ordinary dining experience.
Eden East has been on my Austin list of must dos since discovering Springdale Farms on a bike adventure a little over a year ago. Last week was my last in Austin and my friends and I gathered for a last hurrah. The staff was amazing from before we even arrived - I love the text confirmation of reservation. We updated our numbers the day of (adding one to our party) and we even adjust our dietary restrictions just hours before we arrived with no fuss. Walking into the garden restaurant was like being transported to a magical alternate universe - the design is simple, yet stunning and even more impressive, the food matches. We've all been to places that are scenic and charming but the food isn't great - Eden East is perfect!
went here for my birthday. I never stopped smiling the minute I stepped onto the grounds. This place is so special! The food was wonderful and the complimentary cocktails are great. I love that they have a wine shop right down the street that does wine pairings. Just the ambience itself if worth a trip. The only negative I have is that we had to wait quite a long time, about 30 minutes, between one of the courses. I really enjoyed walking around the farm and the live music. But of course, it's a restaurant, so the food actually does matter in a review, right? It's very worth it. Go for the food and the ambience. You won't be disappointed!!
AMAZING! The restaurant & farm looked like a photo shoot straight out of BonAppetite. Arrive early to roam the farm and take in all the surroundings. The food was delicious and the portions were the perfect size. The staff was extremely friendly & made our experience that more special. I felt like I was in the countryside tucked away in a little piece of farm heaven. This is a must visit when in Austin. Definitely a one-of-a-kind farm to table open-air experience. Would also be an amazing place for a wedding reception!
We celebrated my son's high school graduation at Eden East and thought it was fabulous. The group of family and friends included a large number of foodies with food sensitivities and they all were happy content folk by the end of the meal.
We particularly enjoyed bringing our own wine.
