This is a comfortable restaurant. Like visiting someone's house the arrangement of the vignettes lends to good intimate casual conversation groups. The food was generously proportioned for the small plates and the selection of craft beers was good.The noise level was a bit loud for us and we had trouble conversing sitting across from each other but overall the experience was enjoyable. This is more of a quick casual Happy Hour venue than a fine dining restaurant but one could linger in a pleasant environment. More

We went to Nick’s mid-afternoon post movie date. We have been to the Nick’s in Laguna Beach several times and were excited to try this new one in Pasadena. It did not disappoint . From the moment we walked through the door we were treated like they were happy to have us. Very welcoming. The food was wonderful. We shared the shrimp taquitos and they are so good! For my entree I had the Bistro Lunch, a petite(very petite) filet with house salad and homemade soup of the day. The soup was a shrimp bisque with andouille sausage over a scoop of rice. Delicious. And the salad had diced apple, nuts, chopped egg, and shredded lettuce. Also very good. The meat was perfectly cooked and served on a crouton. Cost: $22 and worth every penny! My husband had a steak salad, steak cooked perfectly and served sliced on the side with a wedge of bleu cheese. He said it was excellent. We are looking forward to our next visit! More

Our server, Michael, rocked. He was so friendly, attentive, helpful, and flawless. We had a great time and really enjoyed the food, beer, cold & warm sake, and the ambiance. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the bathroom being weirdly, eerily underground (downstairs). It feels like it's about to turn into an "IT" (Stephen King) scene. I was looking for a red balloon. Anyway, also very reasonable pricing. Thank you. More

It’s a great place to get a delightful bowl of bone broth. The service is good until about halfway through your meal and then they seem to hover around your table almost trying to push you out to seat the next group. Tonight they kept trying to grab my bowl and the waitress had my utensils in her hand and I had to say “I’m still eating.” It was embarrassing. So that’s not fun. I think their ideal customer stops eating halfway through and ask for the rest to be wrapped to go... ;) More

I recently discovered The Impossible Burger at Umami Burger in Pasadena, and now I'm hooked! It's an entirely plant based burger that looks like meat, tastes like meat, smells like meat, chews like meat, and is simply delicious! Even my non-vegetarian friends were knocked out by them! That alone is reason to return often, but, in addition, the cocktails are good, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is lively. It's rather loud, so it's not the place to go for an intimate conversation, but it's a fun place. More

Not your usual boring steakhouse, more like a high end burger joint. Very creative menu, although somewhat limited in meat choices. Salad with steak, great. Burger with grilled chicken, great but perhaps a bit on the over top sized (I didn't finish it, although quite good. Fries also excellent, stayed hot until end of meal thanks to the copper pipe (without a bottom) container. Design goes out of its way to be industrial... or a meat shop that happens to have a restaurant in it. Not like a traditional steak house at all, much more expensive than a chain restaurant when you are looking for a burger. Meant for a younger crowd, I'd say, but I'm in my late 50s and still enjoyed the experience. More

A Casual Plus Experience I was not planning on getting the buffet, but my date did so I followed suit. It was small but offered a fair number of options, with a few vegetarian options (a seasoned Broccoli, Aloo Gobi (Potato and cauliflower), Daal (Lentils), steamed white rice), several others with animal protein, such as Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Curry, etc. Everything was tasty without being bland, like many buffets are. I like 'medium' spice in Indian restaurants, and this was a little shy of that, but not as mild as some places I have eaten. The seating is comfortable, but it is all small tables, no booths. The water glass I used had a noticeable chip out of the base, but wasn't worth hassling anyone over. The servers checked on us frequently and filled our glasses as often. I ordered the Apricot Naan because I had seen it online on the menu and I love apricot anything. It was yummy, almost a dessert :) Too bad I am allergic to mango so I could not try it with the mango chutney it is served with. More

Time counts at BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we’ve continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ’s a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ’s to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we’ve put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven’t just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this.

Ramen | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel
Booked 1 time today

Since 2012, Chibiscus has done more than refine an old tradition: We've started a new one. Guided by an international palate, we fuse unique cooking techniques from around the world to create interesting flavors and textures in our Ramen without MSG. Chibiscus makes everything in small batches from our shops in L.A and Pasadena. To achieve optimal flavor, our broth is cooked from scratch for at least 20 hours, making everything we serve worth your patience. Re-inventing Ramen was our starting point, now we are ready to bring out all the things we love to share with you.More

We went to Nick’s mid-afternoon post movie date. We have been to the Nick’s in Laguna Beach several times and were excited to try this new one in Pasadena. It did not disappoint . From the moment we walked through the door we were treated like they were happy to have us. Very welcoming. The food was wonderful. We shared the shrimp taquitos and they are so good! For my entree I had the Bistro Lunch, a petite(very petite) filet with house salad and homemade soup of the day. The soup was a shrimp bisque with andouille sausage over a scoop of rice. Delicious. And the salad had diced apple, nuts, chopped egg, and shredded lettuce. Also very good. The meat was perfectly cooked and served on a crouton. Cost: $22 and worth every penny! My husband had a steak salad, steak cooked perfectly and served sliced on the side with a wedge of bleu cheese. He said it was excellent. We are looking forward to our next visit! More
