Frequently Asked Questions
How long have you been open?
We opened September 4, 2015. So ... someone do the math.
Where did the name Eden Hill come from?
Queen Anne Hill wasn't always called Queen Anne Hill - some of it's previous names include Galer's Hill and Eden Hill! It's a tribute to our neighborhood.
Are you Australian?
Nope, but Chef does a pretty great Australian accent. Ask him about it.
Who is the Chef?
Maximillian Petty. You can read about him here.
You guys also have Maximilien restaurant, right?
Nope, Chef just shares the name. But it's spelled differently. Eden Hill is our one and only restaurant.
Tell me about the wallpaper.
It's pretty great, huh? What do you want to know?
Can I buy a gift card?
Yes! Click here to purchase a gift card online, or call us at 206-708-6836 or email at email@example.com.
eden hill? i've never heard of it.
ok, so tell me about the food.
How often does the menu change?
The menu is printed daily and there are minor tweaks every day. Through the course of a month, you'll probably see 40% of the a la carte dishes change. The tasting menu changes with more frequency.
Are you tasting menu only?
Nope, we offer both a tasting menu and a la carte menu nightly. From the homepage, scroll down to the "Menu" section to read our a la carte menu.
I'd like to do the tasting menu. Do I need to tell you in advance?
We appreciate the notice but no, you don't have to.
What kind of vegetarian/gluten-free/dairy-free/etc options do you have?
Depends. The menu changes with such frequency, it's hard to say what's going to be on the menu that night to meet dietary restrictions, but there will be something. In these instances, we highly recommend the tasting menu to allow the kitchen flexibility to put together composed plates to meet your needs.
I saw a picture of salmon/gnocchi/spaghetti/etc online. Can I have that?
Perhaps! Sometimes we have just enough extra to make you a dish. Doesn't hurt to ask but if it's not on the menu, we probably don't have it anymore.
What's on the Chef's Blind Tasting?
What's the fun in a blind tasting menu if you know what's on it? 99% of the time it's all off-menu, but we'll always ask about dietary restrictions and preferences before you begin the meal. If that scares you, we suggest sticking with the a la carte menu.
No but really, what's on the menu?
Do I have to wear a blindfold to do the Chef's Blind Tasting?
Nope, but we can arrange it if you'd like to.
Do you charge a corkage fee?
Yes, $25 per bottle with a two bottle maximum.
HM, SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD. LET'S TALK ABOUT MY VISIT.
How do I make a reservation?
Do I have to make a reservation?
Nope, you can chance a walk-in! We make all seats in our restaurant available for reservations; however, we aren’t completely booked every night. Your best bet is bar seating just outside the prime hours (6-8 pm).
Your reservation system has a lot of options. What am I looking at?
Good question! We offer tickets for our Grand Tasting menu available to purchase through Tock, and regular reservations for the remainder of our seats through OpenTable.
What’s the difference between a ticket and a regular reservation?
A ticket is a pre-purchased multi-course tasting menu. Tickets are refundable up to 48 hours in advance of the date selected and only available for the Grand Tasting menu.
A regular reservation secures a seat in our dining room for your choice of either the a la carte menu or the Chef's Tasting menu. We take credit cards to secure reservations and will assess a $25 per person cancellation fee for reservations cancelled within 24 hours of the reservation.
What are the terms and conditions of my ticket?
Tickets are refundable up to 48 hours in advance of the selected date. Within 48 hours of the selected date/time, the ticket becomes transferable to another guest but the date and time cannot be changed. We cannot coordinate/assist with ticket transfers.
What’s your cancellation policy?
Reservations cancelled 24 hours in advance are subject to a $25 per person cancellation fee.
Tickets become non-refundable up to 48 hours in advance of the dates.
I want to make a reservation for a party. How do I do that?
Please give us a call at 206-708-6836 or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm coming in for my/friend's/husband's birthday/anniversary/graduation/etc. Can you do something special?
Congrats on your celebration! What is it you have in mind? If you tell us when you get here you're celebrating a birthday, we can put a candle in the dessert you order. Beyond that, we don't have a standard practice for celebrations but are open to helping you make your dinner special. Just let us know what you're thinking at the time of your reservation.
Can I bring my kids?
Perhaps! We're parents too and love children but understand that our restaurant isn't always the best environment for little ones. We welcome you to use your best judgment knowing that we cannot provide high chairs or booster seats and most diners spend at least two hours with us.
Do you host private events?
Yes! Call us at 206-708-6836 or email at email@example.com.
Do you have a private room?
Nope. A 24-seat restaurant doesn't have extra rooms.
What's the parking situation like?
We don't have a designated parking lot but there's plenty of free parking along Queen Anne Ave and Boston streets.
I'm on Queen Anne Ave and Boston St but I don't see you. Where are you?
We're at 2209 Queen Anne Ave N, sandwiched between Have Good Nail, Caffe Ladro, and Swedish Hospital. If you see How to Cook A Wolf, we're directly across the street. If all else fails, walk the west side of Queen Anne Ave between Boston and McGraw streets and you'll see us!
Do you have a dress code?
Nope. We like to think we're pretty approachable and that starts with feeling comfortable. Use your best judgment, please.
Can you change the music?
