    Missed the mark slightly. We were graciously allowed to push our reservation back 15 minutes on a very busy Friday night to 7:15. Appreciated that! Were immediately sat in the private room where the wine in stored. Felt a bit like a stock room as various wait staff came in to get their wine selections. Steaks delish but not to order. Ordered coffee but didn't get it...not on bill either.

    I spent many wonderful lunch's at Taylor’s Down town location, which was established in 1953. The new location is just as good for me and my friends, we meet at the New Taylor's once a month for lunch since we retired. Considering that I live in OC CA and It's an 82 mile round trip ride, tells you how much I love the food at Taylor's. If you like prime beef & fresh fish they have the best, and if you love home made soups, Taylor's exceeds every Restaurant I've ever eaten at . They have a weekly lunch specials as well as dinner specials, my favorite for lunch on Thursdays is the Soup & Sandwich, Corned Beef on Rye & Fresh Mushroom Soup, and at $12, it's a real deal. If you want the best in food and service you have to eat at Taylor's.

    Good quality and reliable preparation from appetizer to last bite. Meat is their specialty and does not dissapoint in any of the copurses availbel. The Molly salad is different and very tasty. Wine offerings complement the food nicely, Sweets could use an up date. Staff is attentive and helpful.

    We have dined at Taylor's Steakhouse La Canada on a number of occasions. The food is always very good, I wish I could say the same about our server. He was rude and failed to answer questions. One of our guests asked me a question and he answered for me. The look on the faces of the other members of our party was priceless. Will dine there again unless our "etiquette starved" server is assigned to our table in which case we will leave.

    Be hungry for a delicious steak!!! My new favorite is the Kansas City steak. The Molly salad is out of this world for the bleu cheese lover and the cole slaw is crunchy and light. My dining experiences at Taylor's have always been fabulous. I drive out of my way often for their cheeseburger. It's just an incredible dining experience and the service is excellent. The Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and fruity and the atmosphere and setting take you back to the days of steak houses on Ventura Blvd. Bon Appetite!

    I have been going to Taylor's Steak House since it first began on Western Ave. We go at least twice a month and sometimes more. We always take guest there for a wonderful experience. The Manager Anita, her hostesses and staff are wonderful and make you feel right at home. Besides that the food is fantastic and not a better steak in town...........Love the one I La Canada.

    Taylor's Steakhouse is an all-time favorite! I love that the wait staff knows your name and everyone is so incredibly friendly. The food is divine. I love to order the Molly salad chopped with bacon and avocado added. The portion is big enough to be split with a friend. Then to top it off I get the London Broil appetizer which features 3 succulent pieces of meat which melt in your with a side of horseradish, The perfect meal! For special romantic nights, reserve in advance the wine cellar table. Very special!

    Each and every time either my husband and I have gone to Taylor's or each and every time we go with our friends for a special occasion as was this particular time it has always turned out to have been the most wonderful experience as far as food choices, service and overall dining experience. We have been to many steak houses, expensive ones and highly known ones, but to us, Taylor's stands so far out that it should be on the A listers choice of restaurants and as a bonus their prices are outstanding! I would pay more, but they are smart by keeping their prices reasonable so that everyone can come and experience and enjoy their fine restaraunt anytime!

    The evening was nice and we enjoyed ourselves, but we went away feeling that we could have gotten a better steak at home. I enjoyed the fresh corn the best. The meat was rather tasteless and loaded with fat and the salad was also very bland. A special treat was given to us for our anniversary... a small dish of mocha almond fudge ice cream that was delicious. Our waitress was not very comfortable. She seemed a bit impatient when we didn't know exactly what to order, and later, when there was a disturbance in the restaurant she got very flustered. My overall feeling about this trip to Taylors was that for the money, it is really not worth it. We spent $110 and neither of us really thought the food was outstanding.

    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).

    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!

    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.
