A Pasadena Standard, but with one exception – I am fortunate enough to live 5 minutes away from Parkway and Arroyo Chop House, and dine at both frequently. The food is very good and the service is generally very good (obviously slows down when the place is packed, which is often). One thing that I found inappropriate for such a high caliber restaurant was the hostess. At such a fine dining establishment I would expect the hostess (and all of the staff for that matter) to be dressed appropriately.

memorable catfish – I remember the catfish dish I ordered. They served the whole thing! It seemed huge, but the delectable sauce made me enjoy the course all the more and finish the whole thing. Their bold and contemporary approaches to everyday items made the dining experience a wonderful adventure!

Quality Dining Experience – Quality food, informed wait staff, pleasant/romantic surroundings (how can you not love the gigantic floral arrangement?). It's a great date spot or business dinner spot - you won't get your socks knocked off, but you will get a great meal and dining experience. I've never been disappointed.

Spago's on the East – A very upscale restaurant nestled in the suburbs of Pasadena. The quality of this restaurant is comparable to The Center Club in Irvine and Jimmy's in Beverly Hills (not sure if they're still around) and very close to Spago's, if not, better than in many of its own ways. It's more like a million dollar club filled with rich old men and their hot 40-50 something year old wives - okay, let's just leave it at that for now. The food was good and the portions were adequate. I enjoyed it, wouldn't return unless the occasion's a special one though.

A stylish American grill where simple is better and service always shines. – The Scene
The Grill is a big, jazzy, brick-lined expanse that's lively enough for festive groups yet classy enough for a first date (ask for one of the tranquil tables on the periphery). Towering sprays of flowers, pastoral paintings, and nonstop piano add a romantic touch.

The Food
While most of the simple, grilled entrees are pleasing, more intricate creations, like a flaccid and oversauced lobster crepe, fall flat. Crab cakes are fine, but the seared sea scallops with spicy curry oil or the glistening tuna tartare are better bets. Good ol' roasted chicken is a winner, served with a goat cheese-potato puree, as is the nicely charred veal chop with spicy Israeli couscous. The pastry chef routinely hits them over the wall with desserts like warm pear pie under a terrific gingerbread crust, and chocolate banana tart.

aggressive upselling, comfortable room – Slickest waiters in town. The servers aggressively upsell the flatbread, three of four waiters said, "Would you like to start with the bread basket or the flatbread, the flatebread is really delicious and I highly recommend it to start your dinner." without mentioning that if you choose it over the complimentary bread basket you will be charged $9 for it. They also upsell bottled water, "Flat or sparkling?" But I've gotten used to the bottled water upsell since just about every restaurant is doing this. The decor needs updating but those chairs are so comfortable and the tables are nicely spread out. Very thoughtful of them to offer black napkins for those wearing dark clothing. Wish every restaurant would do that. Food is consistently good, but not great.

Outsanding Dining Experience – Timely and courteous seating at special reserved table. Wonderful waiting staff, appropriately attentive. Drinks were generous and well prepared. Crab salad was unique and very well prepared. Flatbread with gorgonzola cheese and thinly slice Japanese pear was wonderful. Crab cake was good with outstanding relish sauce. White salmon special on Israeli cous cous was enough to share. Deserts to die for !!!

Will return soon for a fine dining experience.

Good – It was a nice place. I started off with the crabcake appetizer, and I thought it was good. Though they give you only one cake, it was filled with real crabmeat. However, I wasn't too thrilled with their ceasar salad. For the main course, I ordered a medium rare fillet and I thought it was cooked well. It had good flavor and the risotto that came with it complimented it well. I thought I try their butterscotch pudding for dessert since not that many restaurants in Los Angeles offer butterscotch flavored dessert. It was above average. The butterscotch flavor was pretty delicate where you tasted most of it in the aftertaste. I'd recommend this place for a nice romantic dinner if you're in Pasadena.

Excellent – Food was great, service is great, the hostess is so sweet. The menu is always different, they have world renowned chef's every other week, their is a piano player in the middle of the restaurant. If you want to impress a date, take her/him there.
