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.

This restaurant is tired and it's resting on success from the past and a good location. The service is rushed and impersonal. Several (3) of our orders were mistaken and it took forever to get what we asked for, so not all dining at our table were eating the same courses together. For example, to replace a mistaken pre-meal easily took ten minutes. By the time it arrived, my soup was barely warm. Side dishes were mistaken, too. It was an expensive evening for "meh" experience. The beef main course dishes were just okay -- and this is, afterall, the Chop House. We will not be back.

I always order the Oysters and their stakes! The stakes are always done the way you order it; the only negative is the place is too noisy and loud!! So if your out with friends or couple you can't hear yourself talk.

One of the best in the west!
The food as well as the service can't be beat! I go there for dinner as often as I can. It's a good restaurant to take family and friends for a celebration or just to eat. Thomas is my favorite server, he always goes beyond the call of duty. And ladies, he's eye candy!!!!! The cocktails are tasty and are not watered down. You won't regret having dinner at the Arroyo Chop House....special occasion or not! 100% the best!
Tell them I sent you....

Very nice. Good overall. I will come back. I loved everything except for my steak which was a little fatty (bone in ribeye) but that’s been the case at a lot of high end restaurants lately unless you order wagyu. Service was very friendly and patient. Free valet. Overall excellent but very loud and the beef thing. Seafood is awesome

We took our mothers day for an early Mothers Day. The service was awesome. The food was exceptional. Our son met us there after he got off work and they were very accommodating because we were almost finished with everything.
We will definitely go back.

An absolutely fantastic meal from start to finish. This steak house gives the New York steakhouses a run for their money. I highly recommend this restaurant. Great bar, too!

The one bummer was that parties of two celebrating anniversaries or birthdays who were mixed gender got these great large booths that were raised. We were two women friends celebrating our birthdays and were placed at a tiny dark booth that was low and hidden. That was a bummer. We had reservations. One couple who were seated at the awesome booth said they were spontaneous and just walked in. Not cool Arroyo Chop House.

We were celebrating a birthday, and the service and food was amazing. A birthday card and spray of orchids was waiting for us at our table. Our server was friendly, helpful, but not obtrusive, and the food was absolutely amazing. A very special meal and experience start to finish.

Too expensive for the quality of food. The steak seemed small, it was overcooked and the food was not hot in temperature. Overall not a good experience. Would not go back.

Unfortunately, what used to be our favorite special occasion restaurant is now off our list. The last 3 visits left my husband and I very disappointed. The filet mignon steaks were not at the level they used to be. The cuts of beef are different. Mushrooms used to be a platter of various types cooked beautifully and now are basic with little flavor. Our neighborhood steakhouse chain is better at a quarter of the price. Service was top notch but doesn’t make up for the less than average meal at the prices charged. Won’t return.

I got the filet mignon wagyu beef and it was quite possibly one of the best stakes I've ever had. We also got several sides including the truffle Mac n cheese, lobster garlic mashed potatoes, and corn souffle all of which were absolutely amazing. Will certainly be returning! The service was on point as well! Over all fantastic experience.

For the first time dining at Arroyo Chop House, it was definitely worth going to. We ordered the porterhouse for two (2.5 lbs, including the bone) and we were completely stuffed afterwards. We also ordered the lobster mashed potatoes and ACH did not skimp out on the lobster! For dessert, we tried the chocolate souffle and was good but probably should have gotten something lighter after the porterhouse. All in all, the dinner was fantastic and would go there again.

I always give Chop House 5 stars except this time. This has been my favorite steak house for the last 20 years. We have come here since they opened. I have always had the petite filet and every time it had been excellent. The last 2 visits however the filet had more fat than usual. Not marbled but an entire side maybe 3 ounces worth of fat. Although the flavor was still amazing the fat content was a disappointment. Will for sure return but will request no fat on my 8 ounce filet. Just not enough meat to accept a fatty steak:(

Food was terrific, service great but the noise level was unbearable. The room we were seated in has wooden ceilings and they amplified the already loud guests at other tables.

I will not be going back unless I get to sit it an area where we can hear each other and our server when he/she tries to interact.

Food was TO DIE FOR. Both hubby and I agree it was the best steak we have ever tasted. A bit pricey, but we knew that going into it. They gave us a card and some orchids for our anniversary which were really sweet. Our server seemed less pleasant and more rushed than the other servers who seemed to take their time with other guests. However, overall I’d definitely recommend it. Hubby says he wants to come back for his birthday!

Excellent repas, steaks cuits à la perfection, un cocktail proposé exactement selon nos goûts et bravo pour le service de Lucy.

I am sure that there is a better steak experience somewhere, but in my journeys across the City, State and country I have not found it. Even Peter in Brookly can't top it for me. Steaks aged and cooked proper, classic sides with just enough of a twist (jalapeno corn souffle, lobster mashed potatoes,cream spinach). And a lively fun feel. Celebs, old school Uber wealthy regulars, boys proposing, and people who just want the best meat they can eat all should up on any given night. And don't you dare drop by without ordering the souffle.
