    My reservations were for 4 people. We were first seated at a small 3 person table that us women would have had to sit in the corners of the table. The hostess then took us to the back room which would have been fine except that a patron was talking very very loud so the whole room could here. Finally, she took us to the table next to the original small one and it was the perfect size for 4 people. I then was able to enjoy my birthday celebration. I guess it is better to call and specify the size of 4 person table I need instead of going through your website.

    A favorite local restaurant of ours for years. Always great steaks and sides cooked to perfection. Bartenders are excellent as well. Highly recommended for a relaxing dinner or lunch with locals who add a special ambiance to an already great venue. Make reservations or crowd in at the bar while waiting for a table if you walk in without doing so. Enjoy.

    We hosted an Appreciation Dinner for very deserving professionals who gave hours of service pro bono that concluded with a successful outcome. Mostly men, it was a perfect spot. I took the advice of a friend and it worked out splendidly. The food was excellent!! The 20 ounce rib was amazing. The service impeccable. Space a bit tight for nine as we 9 were in a corner. am sure that was to accommodate two private parties us being one of them. The other had 6. I will go back with my husband and family soon. I am a customer of Lawry's for fifty three years. I was very impressed with your presentation. The group wants to come back next year.

    As always Taylor's Steak House is one of the best. I took an old friend that did not even know Taylor's existed. I ordered THE CULOTTE and he ordered Prime Rib regular cut, Both of the items were outstanding. The veggies for the evening were mixed winter vegetables and were prepared to perfection. We also each ordered the Molly Salad which was perfect. It was quiet, we could have a conversation without having to raise our voices. Service was top drawer, all in all just what I expected when I made the decision to go there.

    I made reservations but still had to wait quite a bit. After being seated my wife and I ordered. She ordered prime rib and i kansas steak. After about 10 minutes the server came to inform us they were out. The way she said it was really rude. She even blamed the other staff in front of us. The server was really rude to us up until we got our check, go figure she wanted a great tip. I don't think i will ever eat here on a weekend again. The first time we ate here it was a Tuesday evening.

  • Very Good, Not Great
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/22/2014
    The dining area separated by a wall from the bar is a little cramped, but okay. The signature 20 ounce bone-in ribeye steak was undercooked for what we ordered so if you split it with your date, be careful. The steak itself was good, but no better than and maybe a little less tasty as other comparable steak houses. The service was good and waitress was friendly and accommodating. We would go back again but not drive a far distance to do so.

    One of the best meals I have had in a long time... Everything was perfect -- the steak, the vegetables, the dessert, the service. Have eaten at both Taylor's locations, and it is easy to see why it is one of the top steakhouses in LA. At least as good, if not better, than other steakhouses that charge two or three times as much.

    Our son asked for crab on top of steak, hoping for something a la oscar. The chateaubriand came out with two thin finger sized sticks of crab on top of steak. French onion soup lacked flavor. Scallops were good, but wild rice tasted like it came out of a box. Service was rushed. I was still eating and busboy was ready to take my plate away twice.

    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.

    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!

    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!
