West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont is a bustling venue, but when Lady Gaga arrived for drinks on Tuesday night, the entire restaurant fell silent.
"While walking back from the bathroom, Gaga stopped in her tracks when she heard a small group of people singing her song 'Edge of Glory,' " an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "The singing was very loud and made all the guests stop their conversation."
Looking into it further, Gaga and her three male companions, who looked like bodyguards, realized the voices were coming from a large group of fans camped out on the other side of the hotspot's wall of hedges.
"Gaga tried to speak to the fans through the wall but the singing was too loud so she had the hedges pulled apart as she stuck her head through the wall," the source says. "She said, 'Guys, it's Gaga,' before the crowd exploded with cheers."
Chatting with the fans for a few minutes while sticking her head through the bush, the insider explains, "Gaga told them she loved them and appreciated the support, but to please stop singing so the other people inside could eat in peace."
As the fans apparently happily obliged, Gaga – dressed in "an amazingly insane black outfit" – joined a girlfriend at the bar to chat while sipping on a glass of wine.

Lady Gaga recently relaxed in a hotel room fit for the queen she is.
The "Born This Way" singer stayed at the W Taipei in for three evenings, where she lounged in the Extreme Wow Suite, worth more than $12,000 per night.
The extravagant room, a loft-like two-story stay, is the largest suite in Taiwan at 365-square feet. It boasts a gym and sauna, a wooden swing (!), a flatscreen in the bathroom – and even its own catwalk suspended high above the living area!
The colorfully decorated space is bordered with glass walls and overlooks the beautiful city in 270º views.
"She spent most of her time in the suite," a source tells PEOPLE. "She enjoyed the room's many amenities, including the 24-hour-a-day on-call butler service."

It's one of the most exclusive clubs, with Lady Gaga, Oprah Winfrey and Britney Spears claiming membership. And now Kaka is joining their ranks.
Brailian soccer star Kaka (a.k.a., Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite) is the world's first athlete to reach 10 million followers on Twitter, making him only the sixteenth person to hit the high benchmark. He ranks right under Eminem (10.3 million followers) in the 10 Million Club, where Lady Gaga reigns supreme (with 23 million followers).

For Colton Dixon, "Bad Romance" turned out to be a bad idea.
The American Idol singer, who was shockingly eliminated Thursday, admitted that his two song choices – and particularly the first one – were what let him down.
"I regret my first song last night," he said of the Lady Gaga tune, after he was sent packing. "My take on it was me, and I didn't veer stylistically from me at all. But I think I could have chosen a better song that I could connect with that had a better message for me and for my audience."
He added: "I think that's what turned a lot of people off last night."

Lady Gaga showed off her maternal side during a recent chat with Oprah Winfrey.
The "Born This Way" singer, 25, told Winfrey – in an episode of Oprah's Next Chapter that airs on OWN Sunday – that not only does she "want kids," but she wants a "soccer team" full of them.
"Yeah, yeah, I do," a (relatively) conservatively dressed Gaga told the talk show host, 58, when asked if she was serious about wanting a large family. "I mean I'm being superfluous [about the soccer team], but I don't want to have one [child], I want a few."
