This is a true SoCal Gem!
This is a true SoCal Gem! The Langham is elegant, and uses the outdoor space so that diners may enjoy the splendid weather. Dining by the pool on the Terrace is wonderful. The menu offers a variety of culinary enhancements on familar favorites, as well as introducing unique dishes. The service is always excellent, the staff will try to accomodate any request. The combination of historic building, elegant decor, scenic views, outstanding menu, and friendly staff, makes this an experience to repeat.

Took the family here for Easter
Took the family here for Easter brunch. The Langham is a beautiful hotel with gorgeous grounds. They offered a brunch buffet. The food was fresh and vibrant. My only problem was with the omelette station. They had a student from the Art Institute working and I ordered a vegetarian with egg whites. He was a nice guy and chatty. When I got back to my table and took a bite I found he undercooked the omelette. This left me grossed out and unable to really eat much beyond fruit and a bagel w/cream cheese. Kind of a waste of $30.
We will try it again soon but, if I get an omelette, I will pay more attention to who is cooking it.

Spectacular poolside dining
Met a girlfriend for lunch mid week and we enjoyed a beautiful lunch by the pool. Food was great, service was great, and the setting is so relaxing. I would strongly suggest the beet chips!

The ambiance was fantastic. A nice relaxing meal on the patio next to the pool with
a marimba band playing in the background. Wait staff was extremely attentive but
not bothersome. Food was excellent. Will keep going back to this restaurant and
also bring friends.

The food exceeded expectations and the overall experience was great for dinner with our 3-year old. Staff was very friendly and attentive but relaxed. We will definitely go back.

Great for family dining. I wanted a place for a quiet place, with plenty of food options, for dinner with my visiting parents (in their late 80s), my two children (in their 20s), and my girlfriend. The Terrace was perfect.

Good special occasion place
Nice atmosphere- great place to celebrate a special occasion.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been dining at the Terrace for many years now and celebrating every possible holiday and occassion. It never disappoints. The food is great and the evolution of the menu is excellent. The food is well prepared and it offers a great variety of dishes that are healthy and interesting in flavor. The chef is very accomodating and will prepare food pretty much to yopur specification if one has dietery restrictions. The food presentation is very appealing to the eyes without being overly pretentious or minimal. Trust me, you will not leave hungry.
The service is attentive without being intrusive. The ambiance is luxurious and relaxing. Excellent all around!!

Lovely hotel sunday brunch but...
The Fathers-Day Sunday Buffet Brunch was very nice but not a Sunday Brunch of old. Missing the good old days of over the top ice sculptures, crab legs and oysters on the half-shell, ice cream Sunday stations and waffles!!

beautiful hotel terrace
great place for lunch. eat inside or out. a bit of noise from kids in the pool, but not always. excellent selection on the menu offerings...everything from salads to burgers to pasta to seafood. highly recommend thus place.

We wanted to go someplace nice and new to us for lunch. We picked the Langham as we have wanted to go there dating back to when it was the Ritz, the food (lobster pot pie and hanger steak) could not have been better. The service was excellent, well paced and attentive. Everyone at the hotel from the parking valets to the restaurant staff were very nice, the location by the pool, considering the quality of the food and wait staff seems a bit odd, but one could always chose to eat inside where it is a bit more "formal".

Sunday Brunch with No Desserts
A beautiful spot. The Sunday brunch was good food- fresh fruit, an omelet bar, a few heating trays with usual fare, a dim sum bar with congee, smoked salmon, and a range of croissants. What was offered is quite limited and this surprised us for the price. We are staying at the Hilton Pasadena and their breakfast buffet is twice the size. It seemed very odd to us that there was no dessert table or dessert of any kind offered with the brunch. The photos at their website feature desserts. Still a lovely brunch. The neighbourhood around the hotel is amazing. We are from Vancouver, Canada (which itself has many glorious gardens) and to see homes with such spectacular gardens with such a wide range of plants was a visual feast.

Better than expected
Given other reviews that I read I expected great ambiance and so-so food, but was pleasantly surprised. We went on a Monday night, so it was fairly quiet. We were inside by a window. Outdoors seemed more informal, overlooking a swimming pool.

The food was really good.
I love the watermelon salad and salmon, like the way the chef make it, not too smoky or dry. perfectly matching with the salad. And for the dessert, cupcake sundae, my favorite. Thank you for the delicious food.

We went for a friend's birthday lunch. It was wonderful to walk through the hotel and enjoy the elegance of interior and exterior. Loved the art, furniture and flowers!! Had excellent service and each of the four of us enjoyed our entrees and dessert.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Light, airy, and peaceful atmosphere inside restaurant (also have outside eating). The staff friendly and helpful. Food choices excellent and the tuna sandwich was delicious! Very enjoyable afternoon celebrating my friend's birthday. She received a complimentary dessert!

No complaints about the Terrace
Went for my wife's birthday. I can be pretty picky when it comes to restaurants, especially with regard to the service. There was absolutely nothing to complain about here. The service was impeccable! We were promptly seated, and then promptly greeted by our server. He knew my name and was kind and funny without being instructive. The food was great and interesting without trying too hard, brought out quickly by staff who were efficient and non-invasive. Our drinks were never even close to being empty, our plates were removed at the exact time they should have been and the overall experience was amazing. Will absolutely go back, can't wait.

A beautiful hotel
the Langham, Pasadena is one of the more beautiful hotels I've been to. Tucked away in Beautiful South Pasadena...its truly a GEM. The food was excellent but the ambience was even better. Highly recommended.

New Chef, miss the Popcorn
New Chef, miss the Popcorn Truffle Bisque.
Flat Iron Steak was Great!
Salad, "Wedge" was outstanding!! (Dressing was great)
Bacon Meatloaf was good BBQ sauce was good.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We started with the wedge salad and roasted corn soup. The soup was creamy with lots of flavor and served hot. The wedge salad's presentation was nicely laid out across the plate and did not disappoint. My husband got the lobster pot pie, which was full of lobster meat, and mixed with the vegetables and crust made a delicious meal. I enjoyed the Black Cod dish and found the flavors in the sauce quite tasty. Our waiter was attentive and the overall experience was great. We had forgotten about this restaurant and only thought of it for brunch. After this dinner ww will definitely put it on our list as one of our regular restaurants.

Extension of the Langham's Elegance
The Terrace, like its big brother The Royce, is one of our favorite restaurants. just great service, food, and atmosphere. As an example, I ordrered a glass of house red wine. The waiter came by with TWO different wines, and two glasses. My wife and I both sampled from the selections. Usually a restaurant will just bring you one glass, no tasting, little fanfare. Kudos for this restaurant in making my birthday outing special with just the little touches, not to mention the complimentary chocolate mousse with fruit dessert.

We returned to the Terrace for a birthday luncheon and were not disappointed!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a perfect lunch - the food is excellent. Best butternut squash bisque in the world! The manager came to our table to wish my guest a happy birthday and even got the chef to give us a recipe! Amazing! We were there on an overcast day - I have also been there on a sunny day when the pool is lively. It's a great spot!
