You will not be disappointed5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy dinnerPOP is a fun place to go for champagne drinks and yummy food. Had a fun night with friends here. I knew they had great desserts,but this was the first time we had dinner. Yummy! The jalapeño tuna tartare was so good, highly recommend. Two of us enjoyed the filet mignon with chimichurri sauce, delicious,, and the sides were so good too, heirloom tomato and avocado salad, fingerling potatoes, haricot verts. I couldn't stop eating, it was so delicious. Husband had the champagne chicken and he raved about it and the mashed potatoes. Again, his plate was clean. Souffle dessert and the churros a big hit at our table. The best was the personal service we received from Ryan. What a great server. He was knowledgeable, friendly, & funny!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden treasure, tucked away......This was my sister's and I first experince wine tasting and me trusting the coupon I purchased through Internet. Beautiful, small, and perfectly lit!!! The waitress was knowledge in her craft!!! African American gal(acting teacher) never felt rushed enjoyed everything she suggested! I normally don't take time to review.... But Pop was Amazing!!! Thanks!! Ps young staff... Yet very mature!!!! So shocked!!!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming, eclectic place tuckedCharming, eclectic place tucked away on Union. We have passed it 100's of times and had it not been for the Travelzoo deal we would have continued to pass it. Now we know what a wonderful little spot it is and will certainly return.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent serviceWe had purchased two Travel Zoo vouchers (which were about to expire) and made reservations on Open Table. We walked in a little after our reservation time and were surprised to see that even at that late hour - 9pm- on a weeknight (Wednesday) it was full and busy! The selection of food was excellent, the drinks were awesome too. But the service was top notch. I can't recall the name of our waiter, but he was very attentive and courteous. Service was flawless! I can't recommend this spot enough, it's perfect for an anniversary or date or simply a romantic night out.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a sweet little resto!Happened upon this restaurant via Bloomspot and decided to give it a try. Took one of my girls here to celebrate her 21st-- we both love dessert and it was a great fit! Both of us are sweet tooths and were barely able to finish the Cookies and Cream and Irish Car Bomb desserts. Champagne options were fabulous as well, tres chic. I opted for the Hibiscus... Mmm. Will definitely return, hopefully with a hot date ;)5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGood..wish it were betterVERY good setup, location, decor, etc. The menu, intentionally heavy on deserts, was fine. Something for everyone. Most of the food was very good. However, I had the steamed buns, with pork and/or veggies. The veggies were good, but the pork was unacceptable...very fatty. I little fat is ok..but if over 50% of the offering is fat, the cook needs corrective glasses. Also, I was expecting something like Chinese bao. These were more like mini- hamburger buns with two slices of bun with the goodies in-between, not the meat/veggies steamed inside and totally covered by the bun. They didn't use the word "bao" and I didn't ask, so I'll give them a little slack on that.
Certainly worth another try.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMYAYI LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!!!!!! EXCELLENT FOOD, SERVICE, AND ENVIRONMENT! WE GO EVERY YEAR ON MY BIRTHDAY!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Happy HourWe came for Happy Hour and were very pleased with the selection of appetizers on the HH menu. They were unique and very flavorful. The restaurant is high on aesthetic presentations. The two wait staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable. They were spread a little thin with just the two of them there. This was OK as we were there for a leisurely dinner. I would recommend this spot for a quiet tete-a-tete with delicious appetizers. They also offer a dinner menu.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery aspect of Pop is wonderful.Every aspect of Pop is wonderful. It's a beautiful spot, the music is perfect (not too loud - you can still have a conversation but you can zone out and listen to the music too). The food is amazing - be prepared to let your friends steal bites from your plate. The desserts are out of this world - get a few and share because you won't be able to make a decision anyway.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA little pricey but the SearedA little pricey but the Seared Salmon was delicious. The desserts were definitely off the charts. The staff was great!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food here is fantastic.The food here is fantastic. Happy hour has a great selection. The only caveat is that the food is a bit pricey.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great find in PasadenaI really enjoyed POP Champagne Bar. A friend and I went there on a coupon from Travel Zoo. I had see it before online, so this was a great opportunity to try it out. The coupon included a flight of champagne or wine and a cheese tray. Our waiter Spencer was very helpful in choosing our wine and cheese. Told us the back ground of my champagne flight and my friend's reds. We ordered some additional small plates and were not disappointed. The only one negative was when we ordered a full glass of wine, we were not able to taste it beforehand. We went with the waiter's recommendation (really, the bartender I think) and were disappointed.
I would definitely go back and also recommend it to friends.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSpencer was a real GEM!!!Spencer was a real GEM!!! The souffle was EXCELLENT and I'm in love with the South African Rose Sparkling Wine!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant/bar has itThis restaurant/bar has it all -- fantastic food, a great selection of alcohol choices, top notch service, and great ambience. My sister and I ordered the deviled eggs, wild mushroom with goat cheese bruschetta, brie toast with chardonnay soaked raisins, and cookies and cream dessert. They were all spectacular, just perfect. We also ordered a mimosa, bellini made with real peach puree, almond joy, and sparking hibiscus. They were all delicious. All the food and drink in this restaurant feels like it is made by hand, with love, and great care. They were all divine. You simply must try this restaurant/bar. I will definitely be back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service and the food wereThe service and the food were both great. Pop is a perfect place for special occasions or just a night away from reality.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBachelorette Heaven!I cannot rave about this place enough! My group came in for a bachelorette dinner , so it was a larger group of needy females, and everything came out perfectly. Our server was attentive without being overwhelming, and made the bachelorette, my sister, feel like a queen. Our glasses were never empty and the table always had a new course of food, both excellently timed. The decor is gorgeous and the ambiance is nothing less than ideal. If you're looking for a great start for a night out in Pasadena, I highly recommend POP champagne and dessert bar!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThks to our hostess & ourThks to our hostess & our waiter Spencer for a great experience. Will def. be a returning customer!!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll be backIt's great to find a wine bar that specializes in sparkling wine. I prefer red wine, but my wife is not much of a drinker, but enjoys sparkling wine, so this was a place both of us could enjoy. I loved the deviled eggs and mushroom bruschetta. If the other desserts were as good as the scoop of ice cream with chocolate sauce I had, I'll have to come back for more. I also like the large happy hour menu, and the fact that it lasts until 7pm. My daughter turns 21 next August, so I'm planning on bringing her to Pop to celebrate.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent, foodService was excellent, food was tasty and wine was delish.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent.

I was looking for a light meal with drinks so I had the soup and a starter salad. The minestrone soup was decent, but not on par with the quality of their other menu items. I was also a bit disappointed with the starter salad, which had a bit too much dressing.
My friend and I both ordered different flights, and all of the wines were great. She had a salmon salad that surely tasted as amazing as it looked. She loved it.
We finished our meal with the souffle du jour which was Wonderful!! Blueberry Banana with Caramel Anglaise = heavenly!
Then, to our surprise, we were presented with a complimentary sample of new ice cream & sorbet flavors! A nice finish to it all. :)4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely worth several revisits!!Definitely worth several revisits!! Great food and desserts. Wonderful ambiance. Could use a little more light inside, though. A bit on the dark side.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AM6 Year Anniversary celebration @ PoMy girlfriend and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary at Pop Champagne and it turned out to be an ideal, intimate location. We were both fascinated by the plethora of champagne & wine on the menu. Pop Champagne provided a romantic setting to enjoy with my spouse, particularly the quiet seating arrangement. There was also a vibrant bar to enjoy for groups or single people looking to enjoy a deliscous
drink. The drink specials and appetizers before 7 are a great way to sample this location and alleviate a somewhat expensive menu. The first of many visits for myself.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a GNO or a date.Great for a GNO or a date. Food was well-prepared and tasty and drinks were good. I and 3 other girlfriends went for happy hour from 5-7p and took advantage of drinks and appetizers at a great value. I enjoyed the Bellini, the beer-soaked mussels, the caprese salad, the tomato bruschetta and the wild mushroom bruschetta. Finished the night off with the coffee and chocolate soufflé which was divine. Will come back again!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLibby was adorable and madeLibby was adorable and made everything so nice. Our desserts were fantastic and the champagne cocktail was DELISH! Fun "old school" night out!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA little pricy but enjoyableMy "Champaign Chicken" was dry (and flavorless); however, the salad (especially the dressing) and smashed potatoes were excellent. Our server (a very adorable Ryan) was quite attentive which made our dining at POP pleasant and enjoyable.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the wide selection ofLoved the wide selection of desserts that changes monthly!
