The only way I know that is like Fireworks is a plug in called Phantasm which offers even more options.
The adjustments made by Phantasm work on vector and raster images placed in Illustrator, has Curves, levels, saturation, etc
and lots of other things. It cost money but it is powerful.
This is a one off thing so i dont really want to spend money.
Thanks for your answer though.
Copy the image in front of it and set the top image to Multiply in the Transparency Palet, then adjust Opacity as necessary.
You could try duplicating the gradient and then playing with the blending modes... for instance, change the duplicate layer, now above the original to 'Multiply'. Adjust the opacity to suit the degree of darkening.
For a one time only solution, you may see whether Transparency dropdown>Multiply does what you want, or you may try to add a few % K (identical or possibly different values) if the document is CMYK or reduce values if RGB.
Edit: Hi Shunith.
You could use Live color for this.Click the "Recolor Artwork" button in the Control panel, turn the color mode sliders to "Global Adjust" and adjust as you like.
