They serve poor quality of food and ridiculously overpriced. I was celebrating my birthday and was a terrible experience. The service is good and the ambiance is nice.

I had the salmon & my husband had the chicken kabobs. Both were so delicious. The Muhammara is awesome! The staff was attentive. The food was served quickly. The patio is beautiful with a view.

Stopped in for lunch between family reunion activities and so glad we did. Everything was wonderful. The ambiance on the patio, the service and of course, the food. Tried a number of items from the calamari, to the wonderful potatoes, to the different flat breads....The absolute best was the pear, blue cheese flat bread. If you like blue cheese this is a must have. Don't know if I will ever be in this area again but I would surely put this on my must go to list.More

Lovely atmosphere. Hummus was delicious! We dined on the patio and the May flies were horrible . It was our first visit , probably won’t return.

Enjoyed the outdoor space along the river. Good cocktails. My husband had the Mediterranean Fried Chicken. First impression it looked burnt but it was Not. He said one of the better fried chicken eaten. It was crispy but very tender and juicy with a hint...of lemon. I had the Grilled Vegetable Plate- everything on plate was delicious!! We will return when back in the area visiting friends.More

A family friend of mine suggested this restaurant as I wanted to relish Middle Eastern food- the Baba Ghanoush was Syrian style which didn’t make upto the mark, and the Hummus was average. The half-chicken which was grilled was also average with the ok garlic...dip.More

Four of us decided to give Eden on the River a try. We were glad we did! Claudia, our server, walked us through the menu and made great recommendations. We started with the sampler platter -- plenty here for the four of us to try...and enjoy. Everything was delicious, but the babaganoush and hummus were both the best I've ever had. We did order an extra basket of pita bread to go with it (one basket was not enough--the pita is served warm and melts in your mouth!). For the main course, three of us ordered the combo plate (Damascus version) which all pronounced amazing (Chicken and steak were the favorites). One person ordered the hamburger and said it was yummy (nice that they had this option for the less adventurous). We were too full for dessert, but enjoyed a cup of coffee and the flamenco guitar music and dancers -- unexpected and so fun! Saw the great patio dining overlooking the weather -- that would be awesome in the summer. We'll be back. Thanks for a great experience, and thank you, Claudia, for making our first visit so lovely!More

Go for the food even if the riverside patio is closed. I ordered the lamb shank and it was so good! We dined on a Friday night a while string quartet played, creating a lovely ambienc. Great bar, too!

This was our first time here (we were a party of 12) and absolutely loved it. We were a large enough group that we ordered virtually every food item on the menu. The food is authentic and delicious and reminds me of my childhood. The...portions are generous and the service was attentive. We sat outside and were able to enjoy the views of the river. Check this place out, you won’t be disappointed. We will definitely be back.More

We were disappointed in this restaurant. The lentil soup was very thin and watery. It was tasty but there was not a lentil to be found. There was also no pita bread served with the meal which we are accustomed to at most Mediterranean restaurants....The chicken kebabs were very flavorful but the side of rice was dry. The fattoush salad was good and fresh but the dressing was very sweet. The highlight was a cello player who was very entertaining! We are from south east Michigan and this is not the Mediterranean food we are used to.More

The staff was immediately friendly and helpful throughout our dining experience. The food had amazing flavors always delicious and definitely unique. The portions are on the large size, a good amount for the cost. Friday and Saturday nights there is excellent live music! Definitely will...return especially to sit on the patio and enjoy the view of the beautiful Fox River.More

My wife and I have been eyeing this restaurant for a while and finally got the chance to go in for dinner. There was no problem seating us even though it was a Friday night and we do not have a reservation. After being seated,...our server promptly came and asked us if we would like to order some drinks, which we did. After our drinks came in, we already ordered our meals. We got entertained by the singer in the band and only realized that it has been more than an hour and our food has NOT arrived yet. We called our server and we asked about our food. She checked with the kitchen and she came back saying that the food is coming soon and she apologized for the delay. Ten minutes later, the food still has NOT arrived and we called our server and again she apologized saying there was a mixup with the order. We've had enough and just paid for our drinks and left the restaurant.More
