This place is so romantic. I love that they are able to keep it warm outside, even at night. The food is also delicious.
The interior of this restaurant is so cabin-like and cozy. I love sitting at the bar and ordering a few appetizers and a couple cocktails.
Hidden gem in Silver Lake. From the street, all you really see is the parking lot, but there's a great big patio in back. The inside is darker and candlelit. Good summer cocktails. The menu is full of surprises like a fried duck egg, octopus and venison.
Except for the atmosphere, this place stinks.... – First off, there is nothing "Italian" or "Mediterranean" about this place. Just because the menu has Pumpkin Ravioli doesn't make it Italian at all. The service was horrible, the food was so-so, and it was way over priced for the quality of the food. When I asked for some bread, they brought out toasted white bread. No joke! I guess they are trying to make some extra cash so they can afford a sign on the front of the restaurant. Or maybe they are banking that you will pay more because it's sooooo cool that they don't need a sign. Want good Italian? Go to Farfalla on Hillhurst. Less expensive and a hundred times better. Did I mention my wife and I both felt sick after the meal? We also saw the manager picking his nose by the front door... =( gross...
Great food, but overprice. – Had wine and appetizers with wife, and paid $90. If you don't care about $, go for sure. Good food and good atmosphere - romantic. But way overprice.
Abundance of Ambiance – Beautiful restaurant off the beaten path of Sunset. Interior garden setting very 'other-worldly". Attentive staff. Reasonably priced wine list with variety of choices. Healthy portions with the cheese plate appetizer. Would be 5 stars with slightly better entrees, but the feel of the restaurant makes up for the menu's slight shortcomings.
Rustic Romantic Ambience in Silver Lake – My boyfriend just took me there for my birthday and I was completely surprised by the ambience. I didn't know there was such place like that in Silver Lake. We sat at the bar and had cocktails before we got seated at the patio, I also liked the inside but it seemed more romantic outside with the summertime weather. I love the the rustic of the outside and contemporiness of the inside. We loved the mussels appetizer but I think that could be a whole meal with a salad. I'm not a big steak person but I did enjoy it and my boyfriend devoured most of it along with the summer risotto speical. We tried to share a apple tartine dessert but was to full to really enjoy it. Service was very nice, even though we had reservation, we had to wait 15 minutes for our table. I guess it's not to bad for Saturday night. It just meant an extra cocktail.
Ambience GREAT... food and service average. – The best thing about this place is the ambience. Food just okay, was not impressed. Service is fine could be better. I would only go back for their very strong Chambord Manhatthans.... yummy!
Lovely outdoor ambience if you don't mind the staff's attitude and just-alright food – The ONLY good thing this place has going is its outside decor........IF you can get a reservation there.....It's not that you can't get a reservation, it's just that this is one pretentious restaurant which will not "guaranty" a table outdoors even if you call well in advance. I live in Silver Lake and love so many of the restaurants there, but this one takes the cake for ATTITUDE in a bad way. The food is okay. If you want great Italian/Med food, however, go to Aroma up the street. Heck, you can go to El Caserio on Silver Lake Blvd. for a truly amazing Ecuadorian meal and great ambience. Or if you are going for that outdoor ambience, you cannot go wrong with Edendale Grill on Rowena. But if you want a rude maitre'd or a so-so staff with just-alright food, go to Cliff's Edge.
Cliffs Edge is great - just watch out for Akila! – Everything about Cliffs Edge was great - except for the hostess. The decor, food, and service was wonderful. However, I have to say that the hostess' behavior almost derailed the entire evening for my girlfriend and I (the only thing that lowers the rating for the restaurant). Her name is Akila, and she had an attitude from the moment we walked up to her to say we had a reservation (which couldn't be found for about 5 minutes).
I have to say - I've never experienced the kind of sweet toxicity from a host as the kind we received from Akila. She was condescending - even responding to questions with an "AS I ALREADY STATED..." - and everything from her tone of voice to her body language let us know that she thought nothing of us. Even after she knew we were unhappy with her, she would say things like "have a great evening guys!" or "see you later!" in a sing-song voice to taunt us!
Maybe she was having a bad day, or Macy's stopped selling underwear with dickholes in them, but either way, it really doesn't excuse the kind of service we received from this woman.
As we were walking out, we stopped to talk to her manager. My girlfriend overheard Akila nearby saying "I don't give a s**t, I'm going home".
Akila - "she doesn't give a s**t"!
Great place - once inside you would never guess you were in L.A. – Was there on 03/08/08 for my girl friends b-day. I must say everything was great. The food was excellent the service was great. This place is truly one of L.A. best kept secrets. You would
Ambience! – If you're looking for a romantic or just a relaxing restaurant, this is it. The food and service are great. I love hidden gems like this one and would like to find more. Please share yours with me! (My advice: If you like this restaurant, try "Off Vine" in Hollywood.)
Very nice – Nice ambience, food was good. Went for brunch and got the fritatta and a mimosa. THey have a very wide selection of alcohol. I think it would be very romantic for dinner especially on a warm evening.
