great date place, great service, very nice atmosphere, amazingly beautiful fantastic patio, attentive wait staff, beautiful cute restaurant, really romantic dinner
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.
Sorry, nice place but,. I have to agree with most the ambiance and garden décor are really nice, but alas the food is lacking for the cost. It’s a real shame as we can afford to eat out most of the time and it’s not to far for us. Will keep an eye on the reviews for improvements.
Unexpectedly great fish. I was blown away recently by a trout dish here. Expertly prepared and very tasty. I would have paid $40 for it at some fancier place in Beverly Hills. I usually come here for brunch but will come back for dinner when I can. Nice cocktail menu, too. A great date place with a fantastic patio that is good even in te winter with the heat lamos going.
bad customer service on the phone. This place looked good from the reviews. Called to ask a couple of questions about having a big dinner 20-30 people. Guy on the phone was impatient, extremely unhelpful - he couldn't even give me a range of how much a set menu would be - even after I told him that I did in fact have the menu on their website up on my computer and wanted to ask about some menu options. He patronizingly told me to call back the next day when they were less busy (it's 9:30 Wed). Not getting my vote. If this is what they're like on the phone...there's plenty of good restaurants with good customer care in LA. Learn.
Outdoor Dining. I'd make the argument Silverlake has the best outdoor dining in LA between Cliff's Edge, Cafe Stella and Speranza. Stella and Speranza have better food in my mind, but you can't beat the ambiance of Cliff's patio. Get a group table beneath the patio's centerpiece tree for any special occasion and you can't help but set the night in the right direction.
Trendy food in Trendsville, USA.
So, “Thelma and Louise” took me to brunch at the trendy Cliff’s Edge in Silverlake for my birthday. This place is incredible. We sat outside under the shade of an enormous tree which was exploding out of the floor of that portion of the restaurant. I felt like I was eating at a resort in Hawaii. It’s a pretty damn cool spot.
I had the eggs Benedict with rosemary potato wedges. I could have used a little more sauce, but overall a great item to order. The potatoes were perfection. Very cripsy. Louise’s mushroom surprise omelette was devoured in it’s entirety, so I can only assume it was something worth ordering.
I kept my sunglasses on the entire time like a typical LA a**hole, but this was necessary. The sun was not my friend that morning. And by morning, I mean afternoon. The gals ordered mimosas. I noticed the place offered bloodorange mimosas, they looked terrific. I stuck with plain old O.J.
We noticed two guys behind us constantly texting on their phones during their entire meal. Thelma made the joke that they were actually texting each other.
After the meal, I was dragged kicking taken to the Grove to watch Thelma shop for job promotion wardrobe and new sandals. If Thelma were a man, this would be a simple, painless procedure. This was definitely more like major surgery.
But I still had fun, partially passed out in a chair, watching the world go by. Watching the poor harried shoe salesman bring out shoe after shoe after g-damned shoe for Thelma’s bunion encrusted foot.

Romance!!!! Great service and good food!!. My sister in law Sonia told me about this restaurant. We drove from MIssion Viejo and the ambiance did not dissapoint. I had the Lychee Martini and my husband had beer. He enjoyed the scallops with tiger prawns, and I had the filet mignon. They were both healthy portions. OUr waitress was sweet and made suggestions throughout the night even on my next glass of wine which was a cabernet. It was romantic. We sat outside and enjoyed the pillowed seats. It was lovely. When we left we were thanked for coming and will go back again. The meal was a bit pricey for what we got. The creme brulee was fabulous everyone loves extra sugar on top!!
errr it's ok. was here for our xmas dinner with friends. wanted to have some steak so i ordered it medium. it looked good but God i can't chew it at all! it was very tough... i was really hungry so i just ate it anyways, told our waitress about it and gave us a free desert to compensate. still for $29 steak, i expect it to be good!!!
Fresh, tasty food, good service, and cozy, congenial atmosphere. Last night was our first time at Cliff's Edge; it has been recommended to us by several friends. My husband and I love to try new restaurants, especially in our new neighborhood. This one exceeded our expectations. We were seated at an indoor table, close to the bar area, which looks like a great place for just drinks. The room had low lighting, but you could still easily read menus without needing a flashlight. The "bench" seats along the walls have really comfortable, long pillows on them. Although the tables are somewhat close together, the acoustics were ideal -- the soft background music added a white-noise effect so you didn't feel like you were intruding on your table neighbors' conversations. The wait staff was very attentive. Our waiter brought bread, dipping oil and water as soon as we were seated and took our drink orders. While perusing the menu, another waitress came by and told us our waiter was also tending to a large group, so she could take our order if we were ready before the waiter returned. We started with an order of french fries and gorgonzola dipping sauce. The fries were thin, crisp, and lightly salted. The gorgonzola was a pleasant change from the typical ketchup. My husband ordered the pork loin medallions, which came with greens and some other vegetables. I ordered the halibut special, which was pan seared, and accompanied by broccolini and squash, and a lovely saffron sauce. The food was incredibly fresh, and the seasonings complemented the food, versus overwhelming it. The portions were perfect, and we each cleaned our plates and were comfortably full. We each had an after-dinner drink. The bill was $116, including an 18% tip, which by Los Angeles standards is a good value considering everything was top-notch. We look forward to go back again, and bringing friends and family when they visit us.
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.
