Diner Reviews
  • "Since we were going to Descanso Gardens, I looked on the internet to find a nice restaurant to treat my friend for her birthday. We were both very pleased. I had the steak salad, and it was wonderful!!! But, our favorite was the chocolate cake a la mode (that wasn't the exact name). It was absolutely incredible. We live in Long Beach, and both of us agreed that we would totally drive to La Canada just for the dessert!!! Wow!"

  • "I have been dinning at Taylor's since they had their first place down on Western Ave., and then to 8th Street. We love Taylor's in La Canada for the wonderful staff who are personable, and very professional. ...from the time you enter the lovely hostesses are smiling and accommodating. Bruce Taylor has a winner here and makes wonderful choices regarding his staff. .......and we love Anita........... The steaks are perfectly cooked to order..........and tender. I would trust any entrée on this menu.............and the Chateaubriand for one is amazing. Enjoy ...and the prices.........how do they do it? Wayne Reed"

  • "All hail this local neighborhood steak house. Went recently with family for sisters 50th. April our server was a doll; very knowledgeable of the menu and was completely charming. Menu was diverse (many steak variations, seafood). Great wine selections. Fun bar area. Steak are sumptuous and are just as good as other overpriced steak houses. Stand out was the Rack of Lamb; April's suggestion did not disappoint. Wow big portion and so perfectly prepared (just bursting with flavor). Know before you go: They have valet in the parking lot where you think you should enter the restaurant; however the hostess podium is off the street door entry (dont stop at the kiosk off the door from the parking lot, keep going past the bar)."

  • "If you want the most delicious prime rib, this is where you need to go. No matter how you like it cooked it is always fabulous. I don't know how they do it. A group of us go every month or so, and it is always perfect."

  • "Taylor's Steakhouse is by far the finest restaurant in La Cañada Flintridge. The food, the service and the ambiance all combine to make it a wonderful place to dine. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. Even with a packed house on a Friday night, he was always there at the appropriate time. The food was marvelous, as always. And on the way out, we ran into the owner of another popular La Cañada Flintridge restaurant at the Taylor's bar. That tells you all you need to know about Taylor's. Even the competition loves it!"

  • "Heard much about Taylor's and gave it a try. Acceptable for casual dining. I expected food/service to be more competitive with higher end establishments. Nothing really stood out for making me want to go back for more."

  • "I went to celebrate my birthday with my husband, mother in law, and godmother. Our server was very attentive, on the ball, friendly, and made is feel right at home. The steaks, from the London broil, to the dinner couldn't and filet mignon, were perfection as we're the sides and salads. Taylor's consistency and excellence keep me coming back. I hadn't planned on blowing out a candle or anything like that (I never do at restaurants); that said, the server heard my mother in law wishing me a happy birthday and later showed up with a sundae just because, not because anyone asked her. In a time when most servers make you feel like they are doing you a massive favor for doing their job, little touches like this keep me coming back."

  • "We were really looking forward to our celebration dinner at Taylors. My husband and I were regulars at the mid-Wilshire restaurant 30 years ago and never tried the La Canada one. We decided to go there to celebrate his 59th birthday and it was such a disappointment. The culotte steak was not as advertised - not even close to being as tender as a tenderloin...very chewy. My son-in-law ordered the prime rib med-well and it was terrible and dry...couldn't even finish it. The hostess was not friendly at all and really none of the staff was outstanding. On the good side, the bread was good and they poured a generous glass of wine! Unfortunately we won't be going back."

  • "I have been dining at Taylor's since they were on Western Ave in the Early 60's.........The food has always been above average and the prices very fair. The wait staff has got to be the best around and very professional as are all of the hostesses. Anita the manager is tops. I love Taylor's, especially the one in La Canada............."

  • "We love going to Taylor's for a special steak dinner and great wine list. We always want to sit in one of the little 2-person booths in the bar area. We are never disappointed!"

  • "We went for lunch and the service was so slow. Expect to sit there for awhile before your order is taken and a long time for the check to come. There are many older diners who might like the pace, so maybe that is the reason for the extended meal. Their prime rib and steak are very good as are their side dishes. We prefer this restaurant for dinner, since the prime rib is fresher and rare."

  • "This is a long-time gem in Crescenta Valley, excellent steaks, moderate prices, friendly staff. It's also the local bar, and it's well-stocked and well-populated. This is one of our favorites for a quiet, relaxing meal."

  • "I ordered the $28.95 rib eye steak.....it was less wonderful than I expected. It was OK, but not great -- especially for that price. The outside wasn't seared dark brown like a good steak should be, it was much thinner than I expected, and even tho' I ordered medium-rare, it was a bit over cooked and drier than it should have been. I love Taylor's, but won't order this steak again. All the other parts of my meal, including the wine and the service, were terrific."
    Dined on 5/16/2012
  • "My favorite restaurant for many reasons, not the least is the fabulous food as well as the value. Most of the staff has been there for years and it shows in the level of quality service. Give Taylor's a try, I believe you will not be disappointed."

  • "I have lived in the San Fernando Valley all my life, and until I was googling for a highly rated Steakhouse to take my Mom somewhere special for Mother's Day... I had no clue about Taylors. It was DELICIOUS. I can't wait to go back there and try more of the fabulous food. Perfect service, delicious food, great ambiance. There were a great deal of older couples that makes me think it's definitely a local fav. Probably not for the under 30 crows - unless they are craving a great steak. Additionally, the prices are more than fair. In my opinion it puts Ruth Cris to shame."

  • "The two people in our party who ordered meat were very pleased. I order the "special" halibut ... Lesson learned, don't order fish at a statehouse, even a good one.. We enjoy the ambience very much and will go back, next time I'll have meat!"

  • "I arrived with a reservation a few minutes before noon. I stood waiting for the receptionist for several minutes. She arrived from another room, but didn't even acknowledge me standing at the check-in podium. She then asked "how many?", didn't ask about a reservation and in general was surly. We did place us at a quiet table in the "new addition", which I appreciated. Our waiter was pleasant, but didn't check often for more water, beverage or desert. We both ordered Chinese Chicken salads...chicken was not overdone, but otherwise they threw in tomatoes, cucumbers, and some "bottom of the package tiny pits of wonton strips". It was average, at best. Also, they used to have fabulous sour dough bread; not at lunch anyway."

  • "Fine dining at reasonable prices. I wanted to experience Taylors for some time, never having done that. So, my birthday was the perfect time. The weather was lovely, so we opted for outdoor dining. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience; very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The food was excellent, and our waitress was helpful and not intrusive. We will definitely return."

  • "I ordered sea bass, which was about $25. The sea base was awful. At first I was not sure it was sea bass. I ask the waitress if she gave me the something else instead of sea bass. It may have been frozen defrosted sea bass from Trader Joes."

  • "A great steakhouse at a reasonable price. Without drinks or dessert, a dinner for two could total $65-$75, which is good considering the quality and overall experience. A couple should probably expect to pay $100 though. The wine list is strong, and the mixed drinks at the bar are well-made and generously poured!"

  • "Taylor's Steakhouse in La Canada is one of our favorites. Although we are restaurant junkies and dine out a lot, Taylor's is one we frequent 2-3 times a month, more than any of the other restaurants we like. The food is always good, and the staff is very friendly yet efficient, and we always have a good time there."

  • "This is a very reliable choice for lunch or dinner--most of our neighborhood friends go here at least once a week, if not more. It has a typical steak house menu (steak, fish and regular specials such as corned beef and cabbage that happen on a given night of the week. Also, the locals know that the pies, made by one of the waitresses, are delicious..."

  • "We were having a small celebration for our fifth wedding anniversary...just the two of us, and we wanted a place we knew the food would be good. I had grilled sword fish and my husband had Colorado lamb. He has since told several people that, "it was the best he had ever had". My swordfish was tender and fresh and the lemon caper sauce was delicious. We will definitely be back!"
