Solid food in a lovely old room. Definitely a great spot in the Echo Park area!

We had a very enjoyable evening at Edendale. Nice ambiance, although lighting a bit on the low side for reading the menu based on where we were seated. Good, solid American food -- great fries! Good service. Thanks for a fun evening.

Great 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.

Food was outstanding, servers
Food 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.

Everything Great, But . . .
We hadn't been to Edendale for several years, not since before the new owners took over. The menu is impressive, and we enjoyed both our appetizers and our entrees. The only complaint I have is that in such an old building (I think it was built in the 1920s) with very high ceilings, soundproofing - or something - is needed on the ceilings. It is very loud, and every little sound echoes. Plus, there was one male guest at a nearby table whose voice probably could be heard 10 miles away. And he almost never stopped talking. It almost ruined the otherwise-lovely evening for me.

The 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.

This 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.

I had a wonderful time at Edendale. The food was delicious and there was a great vibe. Love the restaurant and would plan to go back without a question!

Truly amazing food!! Love it I will go back for more!!

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.

Went 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.

what 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!!

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.

From Firehouse To Restaurant
Very 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.

The reason that I wouldn't
The 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.

Wish we had sat outside
Our 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.

Fun 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.

Glad I finally dined there
I 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.

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.

I hate la food. My friends were in town from New York and last minute I had to find a brunch place for three that would seat us pretty immediately. I happened upon Edendale on Yelp, got a table on OpenTable, so just because of the ease of reserving a spot for Sunday brunch, went with it. It was lovely. The service was polite and attentive, the food was la great- which is just good in NY- but that's great when u don't have to wait in line and are seated at a lovely restaurant that had a quiet and inviting atmosphere. We ordered one of the scrambles, chicken and waffles, and the biscuits and gravy- I would recommend any of those.

Great Outdoor Dining -
Nice selection on menu - fun - great ambiance - even neighborhood friend didn't know about this hideaway -
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved my "Angel's Flight" cocktail. I had the Salmon entree, which was perfect.
We were the only table inside for a early Saturday dinner. The bar was bustling.
I would have loved the back patio, except for the smokers.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had an early dinner here on the way to an event. We loved the atmosphere of the renovated fire station. Thought the short rib salad was delicious!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great spot you will want to return
Went on a reccomend through a friend and found a nice restaurant I will be sure to come back to
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
My sister and I had a girls brunch date here and had a blast. We split a carafe of mimosas, the crab eggs Benedict, and the egg sammies (bacon, egg, cheese, with added avocado.) Bill was about $50. The crab Benedict was perfect. I liked the egg sammies, but wouldn't order again in favor or trying something a little more different.
Brunch was awesome and we both want to go back soon!
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Decided on a whim to drive to Silverlake for brunch and we'll drive back again as long as brunch is at Edendale. Loved it. Food was great and plentiful. Service was slow to start--we sat for what seemed a long while and then realized 20 minutes went by without even being acknowledged. Once we told the hostess that, service was fine...just way slow to start. Overall, a very good meal in a fun setting. We'll make the drive again for sure.

Unique Food- Unique Place
This was the third Time I visited Edendale with a friend prior to attending the Greek Theater for a concert. The food is eclectic, a mix of New Mexico and other pallet tastes. We had the steak this time around and it was perfect. The old firehouse is a neat place and the bar is comfortable to hang out at. You can dine inside or out and each has it's own ambiance. Good place to go for a concert at the Greek. Good place to go anyway.

I love this restaurant for dates. It's never loud and there is always seating available outside.

What a wonderful dining experience!
A couple friends were in town for my birthday this week and we decided to celebrate by going to Edendale for dinner Tuesday night. It was a great choice! Very cool atmosphere, the building is a renovated historic firehouse. Plenty of outdoor and indoor seating. Romantic lighting. Great service. Sophisticated bar area with all the classics. The food was delicious, creative, and not as expensive as you would think for the quality of the menu. Loved it! Perfect date spot.

Excellent Food and Drinks
Service from hostess/host to bartender to wait staff was all really, really good. Only complaint would be food came a little too fast. BUT the food was all outstanding. Creative, nicely plated and delicious. Drinks were all really good, too.
The place got VERY bust later, with the bar and back patio PACKED to the gills.
Highly recommend this place.

This place is great
The food and wine were delicious (ordered the salmon) and I love the outdoor atmosphere at night. The place is beautiful inside as well and I chose to celebrate a special occasion here based on recommendations from 2 good friends. Will def be back!

I've gotta say, I've come to Edendale Grill plenty times in the past and I will keep coming back. The food is always good and the service I great. I love the bar scene. It's comfortable, inviting and just all around great. The ambience and decor give it so much character. I love Open Table and I am so glad to have found Edendale on Open Table.

I've driven past Edendale many times living in Silverlake and thought "What a cute looking place". From the outside it looks so tiny and romantic draped in lights. So I took a date there after reviewing the website. It was everything I wanted it to be and way more than I thought it would be. We sat outside in the patio dining out front, which was really charming and warm thanks to the heaters. Service was great, food was delicious. Wine list was pretty limited, but I'm more concerned with food anyway. Dress was casual to dressy and no one felt out of place. Prices are very reasonable and the decor was chic and done well. To my surprise they have a HUGE bar and another outside patio for more casual drinking. Great place for all!

Beautiful Place, Great Food
Handsomely rehabbed old fire house, w/ a nice indoor dining area, a large dining patio out front, and a long, happening bar. Basic California, eclectic cuisine, artfully prepared and presented. A very nice experience.
