It was a journey. Now, if you let a man do the directions....we would of been there without a problem.
That being said, it is really easy to find!!! The food was above our expectations, the presentation of the food was excellent, the service was very professional and fun, the decor was very, very cool! It put the romantic edge on the night. With my travels we will be back and also try one of the sister resturants run by this group.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a birthday dinnerThis was a birthday dinner with friend and we were truly impressed with the thoughtfulness of the restaurant. A bit pricey but we enjoyed everything we ate.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, great serviceoverall experience was excellent. food and service were great. not cheap, over $300 for 4 people with only two drinks ordered5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Reliable...The Parkway Grill is one of those places you can count on when entertaining business associates, out-of-town friends, etc. You will never get a bad dish at lunch or dinner. Some dishes are "just good" - but always good enough to leave a favorable impression. Some dishes are truly top-notch (tip: Order the flat iron steak whenever it's featured...always perfect). Service is always prompt and professional, and prices are appropriate. The only nagging criticism after dozens of visits is that the chef seems to make beautiful, fresh fish too dry. I don't know if it's because they emphasize simple, healthy treatments for seafood and therefore scrimp on the butter, cream, sauce, etc. to keep the fats and calories down....but ask for side sauce.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable, enjoyableNot living in Pasadena I don't come here often, but I've enjoyed it every time I come. The menu is extensive, the wine list was excellent, the ambience is very pleasant and grown-up. One can have a conversation though the place is still lively. The staff are attentive. The menu selections are broad and preparation is careful, with good quality ingredients.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMStill going strongAlthough it's in the neighborhood, it had been a couple of years since we have dined at Parkway Grill. Happy to know it's still going strong! Same great quality, range of offerings, and service.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and ambienceMy first time here for lunch. I had been here before for dinner and it did not disappoint. Lunch was excellent the lobster club with garlic fries was delicious as well as the chicken sandwich. The creme brulee napolean was a great dessert too. Great service.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent all around....My mom, 2 sisters & I went for dinner. It was wonderful! food was excellent. The lobster crepe was to die for, yummy! We were taken to a corner table way in the back but had a view of the whole place. It was private yet open. It was a wonderful setting for us to just enjoy each others company. I can see this. What really started the evening for us was the integrity shown by the valets and the manager. My sister lost a very sentimental ring. Apparently it had fallen out of her lap when she left the car. She went outside to see if perhaps someone had found it. The valet turned it in to the mgr. When she found him, he was wearing it on his finger so as not to lose it. Integrity means more than anything & they showed it. TOP NOTCH all around!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my wife to the restaurantI took my wife to the restaurant for a late Mother's Day dinner and we have an enjoyable experience. The service was impeccable and eager to assist with menu choices. The main dining hall of the restaurant is well polished andd spacious (i.e., you do not feel like you are sitting on top of everyone as you do with many LA eateries). The food was very good, if not excellent, the highlight being the dessert course, where we selected a Banana's Foster that was particularly scrumptious. Would recommend this restaurant to friends.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMexceptional serviceConsistently great experience, great food, excellent service- never disappoints!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMParkway Grill - a Special PlaceParkway Grill - a Very Special place for great food, great wine, to meet with great friends...the vibe and the ambience and the service are the best Pasadena has to offer.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMfine dining at it's very best!Fantastic food, impeccable service, wonderful ambiance. I ordered something special ahead of time and they knew exactly who I a was when I arrived and were already "on the ball" and it was made to PERFECTION- I am extremely picky and I have zero complaints. The only small thing is that some of the bread in the basket of goodies could have been warmed up - but that's the only thing I'd change- everything else fantastic. We will be back without a doubt!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectEric, our waiter was amazing! So knowledgeable, so graceful.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAnothet Great MealI had the Filet Mignon with smoked Yukon potatoes, topped off by the best Creme Brulé concotion I've ever tasted.

It was as great as I remember. Food was fantastic, atmosphere was moody and sophisticated, but not pretentious. Sam was our server and he was outstanding. Best service I have had in a long time. Apparently there were a few large parties which delayed our dinner, but he was super attentive and made sure we were taken care of and not left to feel forgotten. We were having such a nice time, that we didn't' even feel the delay. Amazing wine list, great recommendations!! Will be back soon!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place the food isLove this place the food is of quality and care, the service impeccable.

My steak was superb and cooked exactly as I wanted. It's quiet, you can hear your companions without shouting but there's a nice hum about the room. The 'busboys' especially were great, there just when you needed them, not when you didn't.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSat nte 8pmThe staff was prompt and helpful. I was seated on time with my reservation.

I had requested a quiet table and shared that we both had birthdays. We were welcomed warmly and seated on their enclosed patio where there are just a few tables. Two birthday cards were placed with our menus. Our lunch was outstanding. Afterwards we were brought two candle-lit cupcakes and presented with sprigs of orchids. Needless to say we were very impressed with the warm and personal service and absolutely delicious food.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMClassy, Sophisticated, and CoolThis is a sophisticated yet cool restaurant for adults.

Wish I'd found it sooner!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the One!The Parkway is a gem in the Smith Brother's collection of restaurants.

Went for the husbands birthday & he was happy to find a birthday card from the Parkway waiting for him, a very nice touch.
