Business Description
Edendale is open 7 nights a week for dinner, wine and cocktails. We also serve Sunday Brunch from 11am until 3pm. We feature an exciting cuisine called "Com-fusion", which is a fusion/blend of comfort foods from around the world (especially western Europe, eastern Asia and the southern part of North America). Essentially, it's the best feel-good foods that people everywhere love. The restaurant is located within a restored firehouse that was originally built in 1924. We have a separate full bar and a large outdoor patio for drinks or dining. We specialize in excellent service and quality food. Edendale is located in Silver Lake, close to Hollywood, Glendale, Downtown, Pasadena, Los Feliz, Eagle Rock and Echo Park. We look forward to serving you!

Love that this place is situated in an old firehouse. They have a really pretty front courtyard for al fresco dining. The dinner menu is a little stodgy for me (and pricier than I'd like), so I prefer to sit at the bar and just nosh on appetizer items there.

Decided to try something new the other day and stumbled up on Edendale on YP.com. Easy to make reservation (via opentable integration on YP)... got in/seated promptly. The atmosphere was excellent (end of day, sunlight streaming through the big windows; outdoor dining also available). Had a nice glass of wine and enjoyed the comfort food! Appetizers of almonds, olives, cornishons - bread upon request. The meatloaf - very scruptious. The steak fritas - yum. If you want something new and different, try Edendale!

Awful experience!!!

Sorry, the place looks nice, the food isn't terrible, but it's ridiculously overpriced and after two visits, we have had consistently bad service. To start, I NEVER tip less that 20%. It would take a terrible experience to make me tip less because I used to be a server. However, our server actually complained to us that we were making things harder for her because we needed help having her cash out our part of a larger check. We had asked for a separate ticket, but they have that unfriendly policy that does not allow such things because with tables of six or more they charge an automatic 30% gratuity. I'm a big tipper, but being forced to tip 30% when our idiot server insisted we have to figure out our own items of a huge $600 ticket, use our calculators to figure out the tax, then run tickets separately, with 8 people trying to do this it took 20 minutes just to figure out. She had to make 5 separate trips to run people's cards and then return with a new ""updated"" check. Letting us have our own check would have been 100 times easier, but she finally said, ""well this is easier for us"" showing that their fear that someone may not tip enough outweighs their desire to make sure their clients enjoy their dining experience. A terrible server made sure she got her undeserved tip, but I can say with certainty, I will never go back or recommend this over-rated snotty place to anyone.

its not like i remember it

don't mind spending money for a good meal, but what a waste of $100. mediocre food (altho the meatloaf was good) disinterested (and largely unavailable) service and the dining room smelled like cigarettes.... what's that about ? the menu was uninspired and uninteresting....not at all like i remember it from about a year ago or so.... the physical setting is great...but its not enough to get me back.

Great patio. Great food.

I didn't read the reviews. A friend recommended and that was enough. Had the shrimp/cheese pastry thingy appetizer. Really good. Fish - I forget what - and broccoli side. Really good. Patio very nice. Comfortable with only a bit of road noise. I didn't go inside except to check in for the reservation. The bar looked like a bit of a scene. The dining room looked nice. Very friendly staff and service. Will recommend and go again.

Horrible

This place is HORRIBLE. The crowd is loud and drunk, and the food is REALLY bad. My friend got sick from it. I do not recommend it at all.

A Big Disappointment

I want to love Edendale. I've been there at least a half a dozen times. It has a great vibe and SHOULD be a Silver Lake gem. Unfortunately, the food is average AT BEST, the service is mediocre, and it is way, way over priced.


The last time I was there--and I do mean last--I had a cocktail, ordered a Caesar with grilled shrimp and a glass of wine. The lettuce was bitter, there were maybe 3 medium sized shrimp, and the wine stunk. It would be almost ok if the bill didn't come to $42. Yes, $42. $12 for a glass of wine that tasted like it came from a $6 bottle, $6 for 3 grilled shrimp, and $12 - $14 for bitter lettuce. (The balance was for the drink.)


Now before you think ""Ah, another long time Silver Lake Bohemian complaining about prices,"" I have no problem paying $42 for that amount of food if it's worth it. Even if some of that money goes towards maintaining the atmosphere. But in this case, about 95% of the bill went towards that atmosphere. Tough to swallow.


After I ate, I went through the menu. At the Edendale, in Silver Lake, they had a $32 steak on the menu. Fantastic! IF it tastes like a $32 steak. But considering the chef couldn't pick decent greens, I can't imagine the steak was going to be on par with one at , say, Maestros. (Only an unfair comparison if you're not charging close to Beverly Hills' prices.)


I really want this place to succeed. It could be a great neighborhood staple. In fact, I went to the manager the next day to let her know about my experience and told her how much I hope they turn things around. She was pleasant, took my number and, well, that was the last of it. Guess I care more about their business than they do. Hopefully the next owner will hire a decent chef.

Going back for more.

This place is a hidden gem. I live not too far away and a friend asked me to meet her there. ""Mixville""? I was like, what kind of name is that? It sounded creepy but when I saw the place I was like ""oh yeah, I get it."" It's kind of a random place that's kind of cool. The ""Mix"" part has to do with an old movie star, not ""drop your keys in the bowl at the end of the bar."" (Though there's a pretty cute crowd...). We got there at 7 because we were meeting friends later. Well, of course, they called and we told them to meet us there, and four hours and some margaritas later, that's where we stayed. The crowd was pretty fluid and people were going outside to the back garden and using this old photobooth. The vaiet guys were super sweet, the bartenders were pros. Waitress hotties. The best thing by far -- the freakin' burgers. Sorry to have ""food"" outrank ""people"" but we were starving and they were GOOD. Going back.
