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.

    Taylor's definitely lives up to their rating as one of the best steakhouses in Los Angeles! I came here with my boyfriend and his dad to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. Our reservation was at 7:30 but we got there at 7:00 and they were able to seat us right away. Our waiter was really great. The whole staff was kind and attentive. The food was absolutely perfect and the wine was delicious. They even brought out a little sundae with a candle for my boyfriend. The next time my dad comes in town from Indiana I am definitely going to take him here because he would love it!

    Taylor's is a look back. It opened in 1953, and it retains some of the charm of that era. Service is always great, steaks are terrific and reasonably priced.

    The quality has gone down hill along with the demographic of the neighborhood. I have been taking my family to Taylor's in La Cañada since the beginning and was previously called the Sparr .....I have always ordered the Prime Sirloin steak (consistent and thick)...what I got the other night was a tiny, poorly shaped excuse for a steak...the edges were well done and had the consistency of a piece of shoe leather......a poor performance. I will not be returning to the Taylor's on 8th St. again.

    Taylor's only gets better, we arrived early on a busy Friday night hoping to not be seated upstairs, it was our anniversary asked for a booth, we were seated early in the perfect place… The service was spot on the food was perfect, the side dishes were better than expected, And they even brought us a piece of unexpected chocolate cake for dessert because I had put a note in the reservation that it was our wedding anniversary! Taylor's rocks, if you are tired of celebrity chef hipster over priced restaurants that close every six months go to Taylor's instead!

    A place with rich history, and even richer flavors. Was quickly greeted by the host and the manager. Every employee who we saw upon arriving offered a warm welcome. Dimly lit, beautiful decor that feels like a trip back in time to the romanticism of dinner dates when people still dressed in their best wardrobe for a night out. The charbroiled steak I ordered was nothing short of perfection. I asked for medium and got exactly that. Servers were all friendly, though I wish my waiter was more invested in my table, as he seemed more preoccupied with the older guests who seem to be seasoned regulars compared to our table of twenty somethings. But overall, an awesome experience with very professional staff and fantastic prices. Will return!

    We enjoyed the server and food. Drinks were well mixed and the appetizers were delicious. I would highly recommend this place for couples and anyone who can appreciate a great quality steak. My only recommendation would be, especially on Friday and Saturday evening dinning, if there is a piano upstairs, why not use it! It would be great to dine there and enjoy someone with a Frank Sinatra voice. That, in my opinion is the only ingredient lacking for a rating of five stars!

    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).
