A word from Taylor's Prime Steak House
Taylor's rekindles memories of steakhouses in the old days with its low prices and Naugahyde booths. The menu offers classic fare and the steaks, such as the culotte, are cooked to perfection.

    The restaurant was so crowded that waiters had to wait for each other to pass by. Parking lot was full so we had to park on the street. There was a large party booked for that Sunday. The restaurant should not have booked so many parties. We had to wait to be served our dinner for approximately 45 minutes. Steaks were well seasoned but very small. Such a difference in quality and quantity since we used to go there 20 years ago.

    This restaurant has very poor service. In addition to being slow the bus people have to be prompted to take away dirty dishes from the table. There are so many great restaurants with much better service. There is no reason to come here to experience this bad service. Been there done that will not do it again.

    This is one of the better fine dining restaurants in the La Canada/Glendale area. The menu is diverse, the atmosphere is upscale and the food is always reliably good. It's a go to spot for special occasions and anyone looking for quality meals . The prices are reasonable compared to other fine dining restaurants in the same category.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/9/2012
    I've been eating here for more than 20 years. I am a NY transplant and love this wonderful place. My one complaint in all of these years was with my recent visit: I ordered "Pan Fried Steak" the description said:Cut from the filet mignon and sauteed" However, it turned out to be 'Chicken Fried Steak' which I am very familiar with and which I do not ever order. It was fine, I ate it, but just the thought of breading a steak and covering it with cream sauce is alien to me. The menu description was incorrect.

    I was introduced to Taylor's almost 25 years ago by an old movie producer friend. The place dripped old school LA ambience, and the food was great. I've been back a couple times since when in LA, and went again the other night to celebrate a nephew's graduation. Have to say that the bloom is off the rose. The food was okay, if a notch down from what I remember. The service was rushed, and the serving kept pushing an expensive special. Pace was off too, with the steaks coming out even before we'd finished our salads. We'll give Taylor's another try in the future, but they need to step up their game if they hope to retain the reputation as an LA classic.

    This restaurant is truly a hidden gem. If you are looking for a great steak in the L.A. area with an old-fashioned atmosphere, this is the place for you. Frank Sinatra even ate here back in the day. I had the culotte steak, cooked perfectly, a green salad, and a baked potato. Waitress was the perfect mix of no-nonsense and friendly. Frank would have approved. The only real low point was the chocolate cake but I ordered poorly so that's on me. One of the other diners got bread pudding and that was outstanding.

    I have been going to Taylor's for about 25 years! I have always loved it! It's been a great place to go with family and friends to enjoy great food and a reasonable price! The last couple of times we have gone, something has drastically changed in the quality of the food! The steaks have been "tasteless and mealy" and the salad dressing is completely watered down! Both our salads! One was Blue Cheese and the other Ranch. Totally flavorless! We couldn't believe it? I don't know if Taylor's is under new management, but something has DEFINITELY changed there! So sad! I can't believe I'm saying this, but I don't think we will be going back! And, that sort of breaks my heart after all these years!

    Our first visit to Taylor's. We came to visit our daughter at college and wanted to treat her and her roomie to a nice steak dinner. The other Open Table reviews were very good and it was a short drive from campus, so I made the reservation on my iPhone. Great choice! Parking in their private lot next door with a very nice valet; Excellent service-thanks to our waiter! The food actually came quickly for it was a busy, busy night (Sunday!) So that was a pleasant surprise. Everything we ordered was great; one of us had halibut. That was REALLY good. We will come back again next time we're in LA.

    One of my favorite restaurants in LA. Originally from St.Louis, I grew up on great steaks at great steakhouses- The Flaming Pit and Henry the VIII's. So I KNOW great steaks. I find Taylor's are consistently good- especially the cullotes and their rib eyes. The service is welcoming and pleasant. Plus the classic, dark, midwestern steakhouse interior decor- booth seating and wood paneling, crisp white table cloths and napkins, all remind me of 'home'

    We haven't visited Taylor's for a while but we are so glad we went back last Sunday. The cocktails were expertly made, service super friendly and the bone-in ribeye steaks we both ordered were the bomb. Aged perfectly, juicy and tender with a subtle smoky flavor. Can't say I've enjoyed a steak as much in years. Went perfectly with the 2006 Bedrock Syrah we brought along with us ($12 reasonable corkage).

    My Parent came in from out of town and wanted our traditional Friday Night Steak and we found Taylor on a recommendation from a coworker. What a find, small little place with an old school steakhouse flair. Food was really good and priced very fair. I had the Culotte and it was super thick and beautifully cooked. Great corkage fee as well brought our on wine and it was only 12 bucks. Highly recommend for a good steak and traditional family night out.

    I was reticent to write this review as I have eaten here twice and had two totally different experiences. The first time was wonderful! Great steaks and sides, amazing drinks and great atmosphere. The second time was as if I were in a different establishment. We had to send our nasty drinks back and went with wine to be safe. The steaks were tough and sinewy. The service was less than wonderful. I don't really know what to say other than, I will probably not be going back for fear of repeating my second experience. There are too many other good restaurants in LA.

    My son and I look for great "boys night out" places. We have sensed a decline at Morton's which has been our consistent favorite for steaks. I had not been to Taylor's in years, but remembered it as being excellent. They did not disappoint. The Roast Beef was perfect. Service excellent. Corkage only $ 12.00, we had a superb 1979 Ch. Trotanoy. Sides excellent. Over-all a great dining experience. Even the parking attendant was excellent and only $ 3.50 parking charge. We will be back soon.

    This place has really gone downhill. After years of enjoyment, I will not return again. Old time reliable staff are gone. Steak, ordered medium, came browned through and had to be sent back. Waited 15 minutes for new steak, meantime my companion had finished her meal. Kids at nearby table playing video games, with sirens blaring. Staff did not say a word. VERY disapointed.
