Can't wait to return!It's easy to miss, but DON'T!! This place was fabulous. We wanted to try everything on the menu. The calamari was the best we've ever had. Just the right amount of spice and great flavor for something that can be so bland. The grilled romaine salad was a huge hit, as were the blue cheese fries (ask for a side of the sriracha sauce that comes with the calamari). Simple roasted chicken was simply fabulous. The showstopper was the salmon. Probably the best preparation of salmon we've ever had -- incredibly moist and delicate. The melange of lentils, carrots and chard was the perfect complement (I could make a meal on the lentils alone and will definitely be attempting to recreate that at home). Next time we'll leave room for dessert. Maybe.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad I finally dined thereI had been wanting to experience a meal in this "old, restored firehouse," for some time and it was a pleasant experience. The atmosphere, the service and the food are first rate. We hope to return soon - the next time with friends.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFun stop on way to show.We stopped by early for a quick bite on the way to a show. Eclectic wine list, the apps we had were great.
Fantastic service! It was early so quieter than other reviewers had experienced.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWish we had sat outsideOur first trip to Edendale (after years of hearing about it from Silverlake residents) was mixed. The food exceeded my expectations. The service was a little bumpy. After a cocktail, my husband ordered a glass of wine, which didn't arrive until he had nearly finished his entree. Oh well. Music was very loud indoors. Wish I'd remembered a sweater so we could dine outside.
Outstanding white shrimp dish. Ahi well prepared.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe reason that I wouldn'tThe reason that I wouldn't recommend Edendale to a friend is based solely on the dish I ordered and received. It was short ribs on a pastry shell, which was delicious but had at least twice the fat as meat. Hunks of fat left on my plate that should have been trimmed by the chef.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEggcellent Brunch!I have been to Edendale for dinner and that is a fantastic experience, but this was the first time I'd been for brunch. And the first time I had sat out on their patio. The brunch menu is not very large, but it has plenty of different options. I had the Salmon Crostini which was a perfect blend of breakfast and lunch. And the patio was so beautiful! I highly recommend it on nice days. We will be returning to Edendale again and again.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom Firehouse To RestaurantVery large wine list, with great dishes to pair it with. Desserts are prepared fresh, not in advance, so it does take a little while but not too long. Portions were healthy sized, and the food was very tasty. Service was absolutely impeccable, never heard "Sorry we can't do that" one single time. For the bar, pours were EXTREMELY generous....like OVERLY generous. On top of that, they have some exotic and unusual selections. Absinthe for starters, and something I have never come across in an American restaurant: Fernet Branca. Top notch, highly recommended, go go go.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMwhat a find!This is a fantastic new discovery for us. Very neighborhood-y, lots of great character, great food. The menu is very diverse, lends itself to sharing with the whole table. We got the Vol-au-Vent, and loved it!! The Ahi appetizer, the bleu cheese fries, asian pear salad, all wonderful. Next time I want to try the Seared Ahi entree, or the salmon. The ambience is very inviting and fun.. A winner!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to go to a new area andWent to go to a new area and followed good reviews. We were very impressed with the restaurant. The food was great. Wonderful outdoor dining on a beautiful evening. Highly recommended.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!We were looking for somewhere away from busy Pasadena for a change and found this restaurant by chance. The food was wonderful prepared just right. The ahi appetizer was fresh and generous in size. We will be coming back for sure.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly amazingTruly amazing food!!

Love the restaurant and would plan to go back without a question!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is difficultThe restaurant is difficult to locate if no GPS sign is very small4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at this restaurant and we will definitely go back again. We sat outside, so the noise level was moderate (I had read many reviews that said it was too loud). The food was well prepared, reasonably priced and was delicious.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was really good.The food was really good. My Asian Pear salad to start was Huge, enough to easily splt. I wish I'd been warned of that when ordering.
The only complaint I have is that the main course came before we were done with my salad,
I will return.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding, serversFood was outstanding, servers friendly & efficient. Food coming out of the kitchen seemed to be a little on the slow side but in the end definitely worth the wait. Next time we'll try the outdoor patio, there were 2 larger groups inside which tremendously increased the noise level. We'll be back w/friends.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service is always a plus.Wonderful ambiance, good food, great service and if it weren't for the fact that the noise level was too high, I would be addicted. (but don't take it from me, as I'm an oldie but goodie and seems now, every thing is too loud) Nice establishment.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for brunch, goodGreat place for brunch, good food, excellent Bloody Marys and friendly service.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly down side-you have toOnly down side-you have to valet and the need to find another company3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Space!Solid food in a lovely old room.

The Calamari was delicious though small, the short ribs were the most tender and flavorful anywhere and the oxtail just melts off the bone. For dessert the pudding was amazing! Great interior with a beautiful outdoor dining area. This restaurant has a lot of character with the food to back it up.11/24/2012 12:00:00 AM
