Technique at Le Cordon Bleu – Pasadena
Best Bargain in TownTechnique is a cooking school restaurant. These young people are doing their best to provide a classy and delicious, experimental meal. They mostly succeed, but for a $25 three-course price fix, who cares if they are only "nearly" perfect? I had the "hot dog" appetizer and the squid ink bun was a little doughy, but my dining partner's steak tartare was exquisite. Also, her dessert, a grape panna cotta was fabulous. Atmosphere is like Bottega Louie, downtown L.A. We'll be returning, again and again when I'm up in Pasadena.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!What a wonderful find...a cooking school restaurant!

The cuisine, prepared by students at the school ranged from ok to very good. Service was very friendly and attentive. Overall, a pleasant experience.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first diningThis was our first dining experience at Restaurant Technique. It was a word-of-mouth recommendation from close friends. To put it succintly, we were NOT disappointed. The food was out-standing.
The only down side was parking. I called for instructions on where to park. The person at Technique recommended a parking structure on Oakland between Colorado and Green. We spent about 90 minutes dining on Friday evening. When we were leaving the structure, the attendant informed us that the parking fee was $9.00. A bit Outrageous! VALET parking on Colorado (ala Roy's or Ruth Chris's is only $7.00!!!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service and deliciousOutstanding service and delicious food
I enjoyed very much3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks for giving us the opportunitThanks for giving us the opportunity to dine at Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena. We had a great experience and will return again soon.
One recommendation that I suggest is to have the flexability to be open on the weekends as well.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMEach time we are in PasadenaEach time we are in Pasadena we eat here. Here,young people who going into the business have their heart in the food. This is a place to try new tastes without breaking the bank and if you don't like something you haven't spent an arm and a leg. The "prix fixe" meal is a bargain. Wine prices are a little high but good.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMalways a pleasant event, greatalways a pleasant event, great food at very reasonable prices, so creative and attractive visually2/21/2013 12:00:00 AMas always, inventive cuisine,as always, inventive cuisine, delicious and so affordable1/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAdorable Students!Friendly greeting, wonderful service and delicious food!10/17/2012 12:00:00 AM
