Thought I'd weigh in with another Edendale Grill (new restaurant in Silver Lake, see below) report now that they're on the regular menu instead of the introductory prix fixe. When we arrived, the owner seemed rather confused about the reservations and couldn't find any record of the party before us. When we said we had requested outdoor seating, she said that was no problem, but there was no sign that she actually had my name anywhere. We waited in the packed bar a few minutes and were shown to our outdoor table overlooking the scenic bodyshops of Rowena Ave. Actually the patio was very nice and the heater was plenty warm. I know people usually complain about noise and packed tables, but I think they could have used a few more tables on the patio to liven things up. There were lots of half bottle wines available, which was nice. There were no specials and the menu is very standard. Starters are basically bar snacks of the crab cakes and onion rings variety, green salad or caesar salad and mulligatawny soup. Mains are roast chicken, salmon or sand dabs, steaks, pork chops, vegetarian pot pie, grilled tofu steak. It's all pretty standard stuff, the sand dabs and steak were fine and the service much more competent than many dubious establishments in the area. The small dining room seemed cozy although noisy on a Saturday night. I'll certainly be back for a drink, but it's going to take something a little more imaginative to get me to eat there again, I'm afraid. But it is still good to have a "grownup" sort of restaurant in the neighborhood in a nice historic building.
