About Arroyo Chop House
A modern take on the classic American steakhouse, Arroyo Chop House is one of only a few restaurants in Southern California that serves exclusively USDA Prime beef. This strikingly handsome restaurant, inspired by the Arts & Crafts architectural style for which Pasadena is famous, is clad in rich mahogany and the cozy booths are bathed in seductive light.
Our steaks are aged and hand cut daily and then perfectly seared in a 1,500 degree oven. Traditional steakhouse side dishes include creamed spinach, baked potatoes, asparagus spears with hollandaise sauce, and Arroyo Chop House's famous onion rings. We also offer live Maine lobster and fresh fish, Alaskan King Crab legs, fresh oysters, and shrimp. Compliment your meal with a bottle from our award-winning wine list and finish the night with one of our delicious desserts such as a Grand Marnier soufflé, warm apple pie, butterscotch pudding or chocolate pecan pie.

Arroyo Chop House Ratings and Reviews
Impressed by the service staff. We were waiting to be seated when the hostess heard that it is birthday celebration. By the time we were seated, the table was already set for celebration, pretty orchids and bday card handwritten w/bday wishes. We're seated by the piano and the player serenaded all night. Amazing but standards that never changes or being compromised here. Creamy spinach and wagyu beef are the best and chocolate souffle were perfect too.
Love coming back here.
My husband and I came here to celebrate my birthday and had a great experience. Our waiter was very attentive and overall the service was stellar. I started off with oysters, which were perfect. My husband and I shared the Butter Lettuce and Goat Cheese salad, which was a little underwhelming. We ordered the special Tomahawk bone-in ribeye for two. It came out way too rare so we sent it back, and it came back perfectly cooked and utterly delicious. We had the garlic mashed potatoes and green beans for our sides and both were wonderful. I highly recommend the butterscotch pudding for dessert. Overall, a great meal and great experience!
This is my wife’s and mine favorite restaurant and we have always had “great” service and our last visit was a great enjoyment with perfect service, food was too.
It’s so nice to go to a fine restaurant that Service and Food is and has been there presentation for years. Thank You, Thank You. “ Please do not change this good thing”
Arroyo Chophouse never disappoints; it is always great! Love the Wagyu beef but all their steaks are wonderful. Great selection of sides and love the tableside Caesar Salad. Service is attentive but not too much. Hostesses are pleasant & helpful and the valet parkers remember you and are quick.
Altogether a great dining experience. Always busy even on a Tuesday evening & were using all rooms.
We went for Dine LA and were treated like a 2nd class citizen. The server was notably uninterested and inattentive when we said that we'd like to do the Dine LA option. Food was good but not spectacular to put up with such poor service. We should've just gone to Roy's for the same price.
Really great hostess, ambience, and main course. The pork chop and filet mignon were both great, but the sides were just good, nothing exceptional. The other must have here is the soufflé. The service was mediocre as our waiter was inattentive and only came to bring food, and our $6 bread was cleared before they even asked if we were still working on it or if wanted to take it to They gave me orchids for my birthday as well as a little cupcake (which kind of looked slapped together and unappetizing). Overall, I think it weren’t for how well they do their meat, I wouldn’t come back.
ACH was been excellent for years. It is one of those places where from reception to picking up your car, they want to get it right. If you have an issue with your food, for example, steak not cooked enough, just tell your server — it is never a problem. The quality on every level has remained consistent and that is why for over 15 years we have continued to return without hesitation.
Very disappointed - hears such great things about this restaurant but the steak was just so-so, I had to ask for a sauce to make it palatable and then was charged $2 for the sauce. The mashed potatoes were cold as was the soup. We arrived early so there were very few people there and yet, we had a hard time flagging down a server. I had such high hopes for this restaurant since their sister property next door (Parkway Grill) never disappoints. Will not return nor recommend to anyone.
Our last experience here left a sour taste in our mouth. But after being contacted by the floor manager and owner directly. They have restored my love for the restaurant. Our last time visiting was our 5 year anniversary and we left feeling that we were not treated with the same attention that we usually had received. The floor manager contacted me directly and wanted to reassure us that if we were to dine with them again that we would not be disappointed. He was completely right about that. We received great attention by our waiter and the food as always was exceptional.
Came here for dineLA and the menu did not disappoint. Service was impeccable, friendly without being stuffy. Steaks as always were great and the desserts were all awesome. They always have the soufflé and the hazelnut crunch cake was so good. It was like eating a Ferrero Rocher cake. This place has complimentary valet parking.
I usually don’t write anything extra in my reviews but I was so impressed by Arroyo Chop House’s effort to give my sister a great experience in congratulating her in new work ventures that I had to say thank you. Not only was she thoroughly impressed with the food but was also touched by the card waiting at the Table for her just to say Congrats. Great job and thank you! She rarely celebrates herself and I wanted to make sure my sister knew she’s always worth it. Thanks again! #dineLa
Awesome as always. I told the man next to us they have the best french fries on the face of the earth. When ours arrived at the table they were slightly below our expectations and when we notified the waitress we had a new order at our table within two minutes!
The service and ambiance were great. The specialty cocktails were wonderful. The food was nicely presented and seasoned. However, I’m disappointed to say the filet had a bit of silver skin and sinew. 2 of us had it, and we both got steaks like that. Also, there were crab shells in the Oscar style.
The waiter was very gracious and attentive, and he removed the Oscar style charge from the bill because of the shells.
With so many incredible steak houses in SoCal, the steak has to be perfect, and I’m afraid this was an 8.5 or a 9. I would go back to try the wagyu ribeye sometime, but, sadly, Arroyo won’t be my first choice for a great everyday steak.
Arroyo Chop House has always been a family favorite in our household. Our most recent visit was for restaurant week and it did not disappoint. The restaurant week offerings were well balanced and definitely worth the money for worth the money you pay. The whole experience was really nice and the service was excellent. They are consistent with their food and service which is why we keep going back.
