A word from Edendale
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 "Comfort fusion", which is a blend of comfort foods from around the world (especially western Europe, eastern Asia and the southern part of North America). 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 large outdoor patios for drinks or dining. We specialize in excellent service and quality food.

No animals are permitted, except certified service animals (seeing eye, etc, NOT therapy animals) with ID and appropriate vest.

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!

    Turning a former firehouse into a beautiful restaurant is an excellent example of adaptive reuse. A very "green" concept. The food was great. I recommend the stonefruit and serrano ham salad. Our server, Jaqueline really made our experience wonderful. She was funny and entertaining and kept a smile on our faces. She was also efficient and did her job well.

    I enjoy the variety of influences on their menu; it's American fusion, with elements of Mexican and Asian flavors. We opted to sit outside, which features some noise from the street, but after 8PM it's minimized. The interior is welcoming, but the outside just feels better. We began with the jicama/stonefruit/goat cheese salad (recommended by server due to lactose intolerance) and the Tomatillo Pork Confit (with cheese on the side)--they were both very refreshing and flavorful without saltiness. Then we had the Vol-au-Vent, which tastes like a porky Thanksgiving dinner on a puff-pastry muffin and the Tuna Tartare. The fish is okay, but the green tea noodles are very clean in flavor--I would eat them w/o fish any day. No Dessert today :(

    Loved everything about this place except that you have to walk through the very crowded hipster filled bar area which takes up the entire back of the restaurant to get to the bathroom which itself leaves a lot to be desired. The bar area wreaks as well, don't know if they were having plumbing problems the night we went but it was a very unpleasant experience. The front was perfect, beautiful, quiet, and smelled only like delicious food and wine so as long as you stay up there and don't need to use the restroom your night will remain unscathed! However if a jumping bar scene is what you're looking for you've found it here in the back. It was packed!

    Eating out front on the patio was very enjoyable on a summer evening and the food was delicious! The waiter was very attentive at first but once we received our food we didn't see her until she brought the bill, even though we were interested in another drink and desert. Overall, good experience at Edendale.

    Edendale Grill and the attached Mixville bar, is a place I highly recommend. The outdoor patio is so pleasant, as is the dining room. This former firehouse converted into this combo, hits the mark on many levels. The bar has a sophisticated, yet casual vibe, with an art-deco style to it. and a rear patio, great for group gatherings and smokers. The food is generally good, the atmosphere and feel of the place are way above average. One of my favorite Silverlake spots

    One of the things I love about Silverlake is all the fabulous little eateries around the neighborhood. This is one of Silverlake's gems. Every trip to The Edendale is a delicious and delightful experience. This time around I tried their Vol-au-Vent. Puff pastry filled with tender beef short rib, pasta, mushrooms, peas, shallots, balsamic caramelized onions, with a dijon-worcestershire glaze, and a cream/butter whip. Our server called it "Heaven on a plate" and she did not lie. The Edendale is established in a former fire house. Great ambience and friendly staff. A Silverlake treasure to be sure. Yes.... I really like the place :-)

    The calamari was the toughest I've eaten at any restaurant. My girlfriends beet salad was edible but oddly constructed. The shrimp and polenta, which is apparently a signature dish, was mediocre at best. The shrimp were overcooked, the polenta was hard and the sauce was underwhelming. My girlfriend didn't even eat her tacos they were so bad. There are so many amazing restaurants in LA why waste your time on this one?

    The location and building of Edendale are both interesting and it may have it's act together better in the evening scene. We went with our son and his girlfriend (on his recommendation) for a late Sunday brunch. It was next to empty at 2:00 p.m and the staff seemed to be napping but eventually they came around and took our orders from a limited and not very interesting brunch menu. The food was OK but nothing to get excited about. On the other hand, the prices were reasonable. I would have been willing to pay more, however, in this location if the food was a bit more exciting and with more variety.

    I love this place. The food is great, the location adorable, and the servers are very sweet. The cocktails are yummy! Just beware that if you sit on the wooden bench in the front patio area, your clothing may suffer. It needs to be sanded BADLY -- I snagged my dress in two places. :-( I should have mentioned it to the server but I really didn't want to dampen our evening.

    Met my friend's for dinner. It was difficult to find as I am not from the area. Former firehouse. Get interior with many, many rooms. Food was good, not great. My salad dressing had no flavor at all. Beet salad with wasabi looked and tasted great. Friends had puff pastry with braised shortribs in it. Said it was very good. I tasted and thought it rated a good. Big selection from appetizers, to small plates, hamburger, salads, main courses. Bread pudding was outstanding. Peanut butter/chocolate dessert was way to rich. Just one bite could do you in.

    After dealing with the busy traffic on Rowena, I wasn't in the best mindset walking into Edendale. No matter - the host was so welcoming and genuine that I immediately began to relax. Nice cozy table, and our server was perfect, didn't rush or ignore us, made suggestions. The short rib salad is actually a salad - didn't think that was possible - with perfectly spiced short rib under the greens. Wine list was well priced, and cocktails were creative. We were a bit disappointed by the pork tacos, not enough spice on the meat itself, but our server was happy to bring us sriracha when we asked. Make sure you have dessert - the bread pudding is beyond amazing!

    You couldn't find more gracious and generous service anywhere! And the food is delicious. My menu faves are the Fried Calamari (quite possibly the tastiest anywhere), and the Salmon. Not fancy decor, but nice, comfy atmosphere. Business was booming every time I've been there -- for good reason, I'd say.

    Took a date here for Valentine's Day and was very pleased. The building is really great. A bit dark inside but it created a good vibe. The food was great (I got the Prime Hanger Steak and my date got the Shetland Salmon). The portions were good as well. Filling but not too much food and the prices were very fair (our dinner and and a glass of wine were under $80).

    The meal we had at Edendale was amazing. My partner had the paneer pasta which he loved and I had the hanger steak which was one of the better steaks I'd had in a long time. Cooked perfectly med rare. We followed it up with the apple pastry desert which was topped with vanilla ice cream and honey. It was delicious. I'm not usually a big desert person but i kinda wanted to stab him with my spoon so I could have more. Oh and it's a very romantic place.

    This place serves a lot of purposes: it's a cool atmosphere for dinner without being pretentious if you have out-of-town friends, it's romantic if you're going on a date, it's fun if you want to meet friends for drinks and maybe get some food, it's classic enough you could take mom and dad. It's hard to straddle so many worlds, but Edendale does it beautifully and I applaud them for it.

    My boyfriend and I had dinner at Edendale NYE. When we tried to pay the bill my bf gave them his Visa for payment they came back and said it was declined. He gave them another card to run & the waitress said it was also declined. My bf gave her all of his cash and I gave the waitress my cc for the balance. After we left he was upset but ok. We checked online to discover that both cards had gone through. So we paid our check 3 times. My bf was embarassed & angry for the rest of the night. 2014 was the worst NYE I've ever had. We called Edendale daily for the last 4 days & neither of us has received a return call. I want an apology. They ruined what should have been a very special night and have shown great negligence since.
