To the guy who said Taix is better... you gotta to be kidding dude. As to Edendale, it's not better than Stella just on a par. I really wonder what people expect. Stella is a fun scene. It's pretty, it's fun, it's busy. There are lots of beautiful people. Many smoke, so don't go if you find that offensive. You know... a 30 something year old SCENE catering to the affluent influx in Silverlake. But the nice thing about Stella, is that for a scene, the food is perfectly good and honest, not great no, I don't think the claim here is fine dining, and it has a really fun wine list, not your usual crappy stuff. A part from that it's priced like a SCENE, on the high side. The waiters are irregular, some good some bad, like you'd find in any SCENE, and that can indeed be annoying, but bad service is not a reason to trash the food even if it's a perfectly valid reason to be angry. So if you want anything more, don't go, otherwise it perfectly lives up to what it set out to be and actually does it better than most. Recommended for good food, pretty patio with nice lighting, tasteful French antiquish things on the walls, ability to smoke if that's your thing, fun wine list, people watching.
Pros: Fun, good food, good wine
Cons: Expensive, spotty service
