One of my favorite restaurants in all of LA. The mussel linguine is to die for. Better than pasta I’ve eaten in Italy.
Good spot. Cozy and charming. Food was good. Recommended and would go back again. Nice spot to share with friends.
We celebrated our 50th anniversary at Red Herring with friends. The food was outstanding,;the service prompt and attentive. We had a great evening there.
Heard great things about this place. I travel all over LA and the world visiting great restaurants. My fried chicken did not look like it was cooked through as there was blood running from the chicken. The waitress showed the chef and he said it was the way it is supposed to be. I’ve never seen running blood in chicken. Didn’t say anything. Would have at least expected it to be removed from the bill or at least half of it. On top of that both my friend and I had upset stomachs throughout the next day. Clearly something was not right. Very disappointing.
I had high hopes for this restaurant. Unfortunately, it was pretty mediocre. We ordered crab cakes, matzo ball soup, brussel sprouts and a kale salad. Crab cakes were very good - a bit on the expensive side at $16 for two, but worth it. Matzo ball soup would have been good if there was a bit more broth, but the focus was on the matzo balls, I guess, which were obviously heated in the microwave since they were extremely hot compared to the lukewarm broth. The other two veggies were slathered in so much sauce that all I could taste was sugar/salt not the veggies.
I really wanted to support the husband and wife chefs, but the food was pretentious and not commensurate with the pricing.
Really charming little restaurant and incredibly friendly. Great service and the food was excellent. Had the special fish which was delicious. Butternut squash risotto also very good. Shared the beet salad which was particularly well done and tasty
The best, love their happy hour and the extremely kind service!
A very good local dinner spot. I strongly recommend it.
Apple Pie was amazing.

Food and service were very good. We didn’t realize that they only serve beer and wine. We like to sit at the bar and have a cocktail before dinner. This is the only drawback.
Great starters especially crab cakes, pate, and beet salad. Very nice skirt steak. Apple pie a la mode was exceptional. Very nice service. We will be back
Understated but elegant food. Excellent brunch. Staff is always gracious and attentive.
We always have a good time dining at the Red Herring. The food is creative and tastes great. It has a neighborhood feel that I enjoy.
We loved Red Herring! One of the prettiest places to dine in Los Angeles.
Went for a little solo happy hour and couldn’t have been more pleasant! Great service and a fun happy hour menu with a good variety. I got the corn dogs, kale salad, and a olive oil cake I will be dreaming about for years.
The space is so gorgeous, I felt relaxed and taken care of.
The Red Herring is such a wonderful place to dine. It has a very interesting menu, tasty food, great service, and half priced bottled wine on Tuesday nights.... The draw is the food and the service, what more could you ask for... We keep coming back to taste everything on the menu, over and over again.
The food is amazing. Do yourself a favor and order several apiztizers to share. And share the entre as well. This will allow you to try as many of their amazing dishes as possible.
My husband and I had a lovely date night meal at Red Herring. We shared the yam fritters and beet and freekeh salad—both were excellent. I had an amazing raviolo filled with egg yolk and topped with a pesto sauce, a hearty and comforting main course. My husband had the local catch, a rock fish over smoked potatoes, very rich and flavorful. The staff are always delightful and the ambiance is perfect for a casual date or special occasion.
Fun and non pretentious place with a cool and hip interior. Good food and great service. Will go back for sure.
Everything about Red Herring is wonderful; the service, the food, and the oh so friendly owner who was so gracious and fun when she greeted us upon our arrival and chatted with us as we left. A real gem of a place in Eagle Rock!
Really like food, ambience and especially the corner booth.
Will be back
My wife and I enjoyed our visit. The service was considerate and well done . We shared the crab cakes fr appetizer and that was adequate, my wife liked it more than I. We had the pork chop, nice size well cooked on a bed of creamy horseradish and baked apple slices in a sauce, very tasty and filling. I had a side of Kale which had a vinaigrette that was quite tasty. My wife had the fried chicken and waffles which she enjoyed quite a bit and a side of fries that were some of the best I've had in a long time. We would definitely go back but it is a very limited menu with no specials. No whiskey but a good selection of beer and wine and some creative wine cocktails.
Nina was our food server and she was great!! From the start we were greeted w smiles. Six of us and we enjoyed four starters- cant say i had a favorite as they all tasted wonderful and each had its own unique delicious flavors. We moved onto entrees and drinks- and did not hesitate to order all the desserts we good. Elvis was wonderful- the pots de creme creamy like silk down your throat, the peach pie didn’t even need the ice cream but sure complimented it, the lemon olive cake w strawberries soaked on Marsala wine...need i say more? Amazing evening, lovely location a local gem.
Friendly, hospitable customer service. American food with unique stylistic twists. Beautiful interior details. My family enjoyed our dinner there thoroughly
We love Red Herring. It is not inexpensive. My sea bass was EXCELLENT. My husband who is not a complainer just told me this morning that his pork chop had too much fat. Because we were taking guests he did not complain, he is also not one to make a fuss. He believes he received a fluke, bad cut. We will be back.
My favorite brunch in Eagle Rock! Good drinks too.
Fabulous brunch at bargain prices. Creative menu and unusual cocktails.
Very tasty and enjoyable... the service was attentive and friendly and the food unexpectedly delicious
We had breakfast, and it was nothing out of the ordinary. For the price, there are many better options. The service was forced and sparse. We won't be back most likely.
Check it out! Nice menu. Delicious food. Wine and beer only. Very clean bathroom. Street parking.
This was our first brunch experience. As always, excellent quality, great selection (although limited), and friendly service.
First time for brunch. Delicious eggs Benedict! Eggs perfectly cooked and very nice crab cakes. Friend had and was thrilled with biscuits and gravy. Also took home a rosemary and apricot scone that I didn’t even reheat when I ate it late at night. I’d intended to eat only half of it but .... too yummy. Service was exceptional — knowledgeable, kind, professional and seamless. We went with recommendations and were not sorry. Will go again...and again. Thank you Red Herring.
The food and service were both wonderful. Our family felt like we were part of theirs. From the moment we walked in, till we closed the front door behind us heading back to our car, we were treated with fantastic hospitality and fed delicious food. The true beautiful meaning behind having a restaurant in the first place. Well done. Keep up the great effort, because it surely shows. See you all soon!
Food was good. Service was good. Menu choices were limited. Pork chop was good but had a lot of fat on it. Linguini with mussels had some mussels that were undercooked. Dessert choice that was recommended, tasted a little strange. Will return for brunch.
We live in the area and this restaurant is one of the best choices around for quality dining. The food is always good and their brunch, in particular, is outstanding. Ambience is also nice, especially the upstairs dining room which features large open windows that bring in fresh air (especially welcome on mornings or evenings). It's not cheap but the quality of the food more than justifies the price. You can tell they really care about serving delicious food. Worth a try if you live in the area or are just visiting the Eagle Rock/Highland Park area.
Our hospitality hostess was so wonderful, the food was amazing, and the decor was so cute, inside and out.
Red Herring was the perfect location for our Saturday brunch. The upstairs ambiance is cute with vibrant wallpaper and an eclectic design. The food was a nice balance of California style and comfort. The prices were moderate. We didn't try the cocktails, but they looked great. Would highly recommend for a nicer casual-style get-together.
a pleasant find in the Eagle Rock vicinity. Not on a pretty street etc but food was surprisingly good, well executed, and the team very accommodating. The simplest dessert of sorbet... all such are made in house, was positively wonderful: a strawberry orange mint concoction.
Also started with a creative well executed cocktail.
Biggest disappointment was lack of full bar and sad attempt to have "cocktails".
Beautiful & comfortable building remodel and inside decor. Excellent, friendly staff and outstanding food
