I couldn't ask for a nicer upscale restaurant to be so conveniently located, within walking distance of our building!

I have always liked this restaurant. Our waiter was a joy. He knew the menu, answered all of our questions and even let us split the bill three ways. The food was delicious, as always. We selected this place because it is consistently good and has a wide variety on vegan and vegetarian choices. I had the salmon. It was cooked perfectly and paired with just the right amount of potatoes and broccoli. Other members of our party made a meal out the appetizers and veggie sides.

I have always liked Eclectic. It did seem as if it was not as crowded as usual. The greeter/person at desk also took our order after I waved her over. She was delightful. Menu changed and I missed the wedge salad they used to have on the menu.

The wall of 'art' and other hangings are awful ... the menu limited without any sort of regular green salad ... gotta go Kale or Beets which are not bad, but not to have a simple green salad option to accompany a meal is disappointing. IF a restaurant is going to go as avant-garde as they seem to want to be ... share it with classy art and a menu that might also include some food descriptions that one might be able to decipher without the help of the service staff. You must NOT be in a hurry as even the delicious chicken takes 35 minutes to come out of the kitchen ... steak for two also very good, but takes 35 minutes ... GREAT ...it's freshly cooked, but .... rethink this new look, ambiance and menu for Eclectic Café ... PLEASE ... we used to love you ... more reasonably priced and more options ...

Slow service. Salmon entree was disappointing - expected crispy skin but skin wasn’t cooked enough. There was a smear of mashed potatoes on the plate- I wanted more. Lighting was harsh in the restaurant - ambience was better before.

Service was absolutely horrible!!! And no one seemed to care. Many people walked out as they never got their food. We left before one course was served. We waited forever. The restaurant was not full and there appeared to be a lot of servers. Our server never apologized and seemed to care less.

The food was good but the service was AMAZING. Our server Gabriel was very attentive, always keeping our mimosa glasses full. He let us chill for as long as we wanted, always keeping an eye on us, in case we needed/wanted anything. The brunch meal we ordered were delicious. Looking forward to going back.

Three people were standing outside the restaurant looking at the menu. They couldn't decide whether to give this establishment a try. As I noticed them chatting I approached them and expressed my opinion with this restaurant. I told them proudly, try this place you won't be disappointed. The service is great and the food is delicious. They never disappoint. So give this place a try.

My friend said the restaurant must have changed ownership because he said everything used to be "eclectic" -- plates and utensils did not match, but he said it was all in very good taste. The walls are in desperate need of paint -- scuff marks, stains, grease marks, etc. The food was good, not outstanding. A VERY LOUD woman was in the restaurant and it was very disruptive to enjoying our meal.

We have been longtime patrons of the Eclectic. On this Sunday Brunch visit, we came to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our usual waiter Brian was delightful as always and happy to see us. Among the delicious plates ordered were the Huevos Rancheros, Chilaquiles, French Toast and some repeated rounds from their Bloody Mary Bar! And it's always a pajama party with the staff during Sunday Brunch! We left satisfied ... then again, when have we not been?

The Eclectic Restaurant is a nice quiet place and the food was good. The service was very good with the waiter being very attentive, but didn't interrupt our conversation. The place was absolutely dead on a Saturday night at 8:00. There were no more than 3 couples in the place which scared us a little bit when we first got there. Everyone was friendly and I don't know if the restaurant is new or just in a bad location being around a lot of out of business stores to be so dead.

Have not been to Eclectic in quite a while, but always remember it as being a fun venue. Took my mother and wife for Mother's Day, and the food was spectacular. Every dish was a hit, and everyone was sampling off of each other's plates. Absolutely delicious.

Server was fabulous, making every effort to be accommodating, which was greatly appreciated, and added to the overall experience.

Cannot recommend this place highly enough!

Pleasantly surprised! I've never been there and it's been around a long time. Food was very good and plentiful, appropriate temperature and yummy. Dessert was decadentt, triple chocolate brownie with caramel sauce and ice cream. What could be bad! Service was a little slow and there were only 3 tables full. I would say they ought to change their bread. The first batch was hard and then next was hot and good but very messy with topping. Staff was very cordial and welcoming. I would go back. R

There are some wonderful finds on the menu well-done by the kitchen. The service is outstanding, and the ambience elegant but inviting. Highly recommend the Braised Shortribs, the Pork Chops, and the Beef Stroganoff (a special of the day). The desserts are equally enjoyable, as are the wine & cocktail offerings. My friends and I now come here on our quarterly gatherings and love it! Highly recommended!

The Eclectic was the first nicer place we went to when we moved to Los Angeles 10 years ago and it's been a favorite ever since. We hadn't been in a while so we went for my husband's birthday last weekend. I have to say the food was mediocre at best (I got the Kobe Burger). They used to have fresh focaccia bread and now it's a plain generic bread. And the worst part is that they used to play mello jazzy music in keeping with the ambiance of the entire space. And this time they played hectic hard rock very loudly. It made me feel like I had to rush through eating in a manic way and it wasn't relaxing at all. I am not sure we'll ever return.

Came here for Valentine's Day, had to wait 15-20 minutes to be seated which was fine if it didn't take 10 of those minutes to be greeted for a reservation.. which they didn't have a table for. Food took an hour to arrive, and drinks took about 10-15 minutes to arrive. It was Valentine's Day, but no excuse for an hour wait for food.. loss of appetite.. and a $92.00 bill. No apology from the waiter, he kept disappearing and I had to flag down other waiters in order to ask about our food after waiting for around 45 minutes. Will not be returning to this place even though I was recommended to come here. Service was too terrible and decor is outdated.
