The Eclectic Restaurant-Bar-Lounge
NoHo GoMy wife and I dined here before a performance at El Portal Theater. 6:00 on a Saturday night was rather quiet, though it livened up by the time we left. Service was excellent right from the front door till we left. Mixed drinks and wine list were top notch. Food was good for the price paid (very reasonable).5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMyay, it's open past 10!!There seem to be few places in the valley open past 10pm. This was a great find! The fried cauliflower on the latenight menu was amazing!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWarm steak salad...Mmmm....so good! Saw it on Yelp, and had to try it! This is a somewhat cozy gastropub/bar/restaurant... We walked over after seeing a movie. Service was great, food was fresh...and I'd be happy to go back if in the neighborhood again. My husband didn't get what he ordered, but he ate it anyhow, as he was hungry.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day BrunchThe Eclectic has always been one of our favorite restaurants for a variety of reasons, so we booked a family gathering for Mothers Day. They did not let us down. Food was great and our waitress was top notch. I found it curious that their Mothers Day Brunch did not include champagne like their normal brunches do, but the add was a fair one price-wise. I noticed it appears the restaurant is changing owners. I hope the new ones present the same level of good food and service. It's a neighborhood gem for us and we'd like it to stay that way!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAPPETIZERS TO DINE ON!!They have the very, VERY BEST APPETIZERS!!
It is imposable for me to chose from all the MAGNIFICENT appetizers. So I get three (3) or four (4) and then usually take some of my dinner home. On this occasion since I was alone I made a meal out of JUST appetizers. WONDERFUL!!!
The service is TERRIFIC!! DELIGHTFUL STAFF!! They are attentive without being hovering. Worn & Friendly. The bar tender had the GREATEST scene of HUMOR which always enhance the meal.
The Eclectic is in the middle of The Theater area of North Hollywood so is a LOVELY place to eat and only park once. People can dine on the Street area and watch the passer by.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA neighborhood treasure, butA neighborhood treasure, but worth a drive to even if one doesn't live in the neighborhood!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodThis is a good solid restaurant in a sea of mediocrity. I have been bringing people here for years and we have always enjoyed it. This is not a foodie restaurant but you'll always have a good meal in a pleasant atmosphere and have good service for a good price.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local restaurantWe thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Expected restaurant to be crowded on a Sat evening, but it wasn't. Folks you are missing a great place for dinner! Lack of crowd allowed us to stay a little longer (much appreciated) & talk. Oysters were decilious + desert yummie. Only drawback for me was no valet service, but short walk to alley parking was not a problem.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved this find in, yes, veryLoved this find in, yes, very eclectic Nirth Hollywood.

The food was great (to die for). You must try the Lobster Ravioli with crab cakes and calamari steak. Killer dish. I will refer this restaurant to my friends and look forward to return.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were greeted and seatedWe were greeted and seated in a friendly and timely manner. Our waiter was kind, polite and interested in answering all our questions. He took our orders and attended to us just as we would hope. The food was very good. We really couldn't have asked for more.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFor first time diners we wonderedFor first time diners we wondered why we had not been here before. Food was outstanding and so much to choose from it was very hard to decide. the soup of the day, a tomato basil was rich and creamy. Had the steak salad which was amazing. Shared the chocolate fondue which had the best melted chocolate either of us had ever tasted. This was a perfect place before theater in this North Hollywood area. They do have valet in the back which is very important because street parking is almost non existent. Highly recommend and we cannot wait to go back. Alas, it is far from home, or we would be there every weekend.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
