Open for Lunch, Weekend Brunch, Happy Hour and Dinner, Foothill Restaurant is an exciting new addition to Pasadena!
First visit since new chef took over and we were not disappointed!
Deviled eggs very tasty with lots of nicely seasoned yoke. My linguine Bolognese was terrific!
Perfect portion for lunch and add some to take home.
My wife had the fish tacos and were very good with nice little avocado spread on the side.
I normally go for dinner. I was there for Sunday brunch. It was very busy. The noise level was high. Everything else fantastic.
They're very accommodating with special diet requests. Friendly service and good food.
Outstanding Brunch. The restaurant was a tad cold.
Service was super slow. Food was okay. Couldn't tell if they were understaffed or they were just overwhelmed. It was after 8p, so it wasn't packed. Then I got a nastygram for not showing up to my Open Table reservation. My first visit was for brunch, it was empty - food was good, service was better. Not sure if I'll give it another shot - location is convenient, but not down the street, so I'd have to decide whether the risk was worth the drive.
Unfortunately I don’t have anything good to say about my recent dining experience at this restaurant... So I will say nothing at all.
Great neighborhood spot. Food was spectacular as was the service. Outstanding combination that shouldn’t go without mention and worthy of many more repeat visits. Can’t wait to work my way through the rest of the menu. Great job, Chef Carlos!
The service here has been fantastic every time, delicious food, tasty cocktails, good wine, always a great experience.
I went to celebrate my birthday and my server Tamra was amazing. I loved Tamra!
I would have given Foothill Restaurant 5 stars BUT went for Sunday brunch and the food was good but the noise level was way too loud. Because there really isn't any accoustical buffer like insulation in the ceiling and noise is enhanced from everyone talking having a DJ playing music way too loud ruined the brunch. My guests and I couldn't carry on a normal conversation without yelling and straining our ears to hear one another.
The food was very tasty, sliders and fish tacos (which were a bit lite on the "fish").
t he service was e xcellent.
We ordered a glass of wine during happy hour and a VERY small pour was served to us. We figured it was he happy hour pour and we thought that was ok. Later in the meal, we ordered another glass of the same wine, same size and it was almost twice the price of the happy hour glass. That didn't set very well.
We were seated at a table where the sun shown directly in our eyes - they need to get some outside shades and fix that. I might go back, but it probably would not be any time soon.
It was my second visit to Foothill, and the experience was just as nice as the first. A friend and dined early on Friday night before heading up to the Sierra Madre Playhouse, where we are front-of-house volunteers from time to time. We were worried about having time to enjoy our dinner within only about a 75-minute time span. I ordered the split pea-with-bacon soup, and it was delicious. My entree was the salmon salad, and it also was excellent. My friend ordered the large (and it WAS large!) bone-in pork chop with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Enjoyed it immensely and took about half of the chop home. We ended up having time for dessert, so we split an order of creme brulee with raspberries. One of the best I've had, and certainly enough for two (very rich). Service was on spot and very friendly. Just reinforced my belief that Twohey's has a real hit with this upscale - yet affordable - addition. We will be back!
Our server, Tamara, was very attentive and had good recommendations on appetizers, entrees, and cocktails. Food was very tasty and interior was comfy and hip!
My big problem was that The Foothill restaurant did not honor my reservation I made with Open Table. Perhaps you need to have a conversation with them. Although they did seat us in the restaurant, Management didn’t seem to care much that I had a confirmed reservation. Nor did they call and tell me there was a problem. Thank goodness there were plenty of tables available in the restaurant at that time because it could have been a really big problem.
We each had something different: I had the blackened shrimp and pesto which was outstanding; my wife had the beef short ribs; and our friends had the beef stroganoff and the mahi-mahi. It was no problem for them to sub-out the leek risotto and replace with potatoes. It was less crowded on a Sunday night to have a conversation and catchup.
Best restaurant near Noise Within theater
Tamara our waitress was amazing . Good service good food good atmosphere
We are a breakfast food couple, so Saturday brunch is always lovely to find. We decided to try Foothill since their brunch ran until 3 PM. We ordered the short rib hash and the Og waffle and I couldn’t have been more pleased with both. The short ribs were as tender and flavorful as the finest dining restaurants. The waffle was fluffy with a perfectly crispy outside. The Nutella and strawberries were also a perfect addition to such a treat.
We were the first to arrive. We really enjoyed the restaurant. I recommended the short beef hash! It was delicious. Th best I have had. My friend ordered the crab cake eggs Benedict. The crab cakes were so good. You really can’t go wrong ordering either one. Definitely will be back.
Great food, great service, and a great vibe.
Great local restaurant that has a warm yet modern ambience, is well appointed, has some great mixed drinks on the menu, solidly prepared comfort food, and some excellent desserts. We'll be going back for sure.
I went on Sunday and the noise level was extreme. The tables are too close together and there was a DJ to make the loudness even worse.
The food was overpriced and average.
I had a great time at brunch! The DJ was super awesome and kept the vibe fun and energetic. The food was delicious and the drinks were perfect. I definitely tell everyone to check out their brunch and happy hour.
Very loud. Food is EXTREMELY salty. Nice service, clean and stylish atmosphere.
very pleasant atmosphere with great wait staff. The prices were reasonable, the food tasty and many selections on the menu. For happy hour they had many selections with a good variety.
The food was good. Service was good at the begining, then our waitress disappeared and never came back. The music on Sunday was good, but very loud. We were sitting in the front, it would have been nicer to sit at another table. Be sure to sit further back if you're not into really loud music while dining.
Ambiance, food, service and crafted cocktails all amazing!
Location, ambiance, service outstanding. Bar service and wines are great! We've been to Foothill five times. Each time was better than the last. Creative menu; some dishes are excellent, especially the fresh fish of the day. The Caesar salad needs revamping, but the onion rings were great. Sure miss the wonderful fried chicken from the previous iteration of this restaurant. We'll be back.
Great menu. Great food. Great service. Clean and quiet. I can’t wait to go back and try the brunch menu.
Good experience, our first visit and everything went well. Our server, Caroline, was very attentive and had no problem with recommending dishes we inquired about. The food was as described, came in a timely manner. Drinks also nice, good wine list also. We'll be returning for sure!
Very warm staff, great food, great cocktails and wine. Lights are a little bright and on the cool side of the spectrum but this place is excellent down to the bathroom wallpaper.
It was one of the only places I could get a last minute reservation for Valentine's Dinner. It had received good reviews, so I decided to try it. I was very happy with the choice. Although the tables are close and it is very loud, the service and food more than made up for it. We were a few minutes early for our reservation and were seated promptly. Our drink orders were taken almost immediately. We ordered the deviled egg appetizer, which was outstanding. My Valentine ordered the salmon, which he thoroughly enjoyed. I ordered the coffee braised short ribs, which were so tender and had such great flavor. It appeared as though everyone around us were enjoying their meals just as much. For such a busy night, everything was fantastic. I would definitely go again.
We live within walking distance to Foothill Restaurant and visited for the first time on Valentines day, which is also my husbands birthday.
We were a little skeptical since we did not have a positive experience at the previous restaurant in that location, but a close friend suggested we try again.
From the moment we walked in the door, we felt welcome and wonderfully surprised by the whole experience. The food was outstanding, service was fantastic and hospitality was unlike any other restaurant in the area. We felt like it was our regular spot...and it was our first time.
We will definitely be back! Our restaurant standards are high, as I'm a good cook and a foodie and we are usually dissappointed with our meals out...but Foothill did not disappoint!!
GRrrreat food. And - My new go-to place for Shepherd's Pie.
Thx to Tamara for your patience and super service.
Our go-to place.
My wife and I have been about 5 times. Happy Hour is great. Specials are awesome.
Service is fantastic. They have always been accommodating.
Food was cold when it came out, portions small for the cost. Great brunch music from the DJ, fun atmosphere, not so great food.
Great new hometown spot! D.J.'s spin great music! My feet are tapping and my body is moving along with my mouth. Food is delicious and the atmosphere is phenomenal!
Foothill is a new favorite of mine since I live in the neighborhood. The servers are very friendly, the atmosphere is fun and trendy, and the food is delicious; especially the burger!
Really enjoyed the small bites offered for happy hour that was available at lunch. The artichoke (not on hh menu) was delicious especially with the two dipping sauces. Came here for a friend’s birthday who got a complimentary hot fudge sundae which was a throwback to Twoheys. Nice lunch place in Pasadena.
Fantastic place! I have been twice in 8 days. Great addition to the Pasadena food scene. Modern upscale environment. Friendly and attentive staff. Ben and Sebastian are both fantastic servers. Tell Herscel Sanders the new GM that Leonard sent you!!
