Good food. Appropriate service and check-in from the waiter. Table was seated a little further from any light than would be preferred. Had to use phone to view menu. Covid safety was very good. Not inconvenient at all.
Large open patio and outdoor space in an open air mall. Tables at least 8 feet apart so no unsafe crowding or congestion. Servers were excellent and spent time chatting and saying hello. Salmon and rib eye sandwich were delicious. Just do it, order the doughnuts. We chose blueberry and lemon which were warm and delicious. We will definitely be back soon.
I was able to make a reservation just 45 minutes in advance because it was the middle of the afternoon. We were instantly seated outside. Our waitress was very informative when making food recommendations, and she was very patient with my parents, niece and nephew. The food came out quickly, and was amazing. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered (spicy fried chicken sandwich, burger, and mac & cheese). It was a bit pricey, but we knew that going in. The restaurant itself is beautiful inside. It felt covid-safe as well.
The food was excellent! The outdoor setting and weather were both superb. Our waiter was attentive at the beginning but never checked in with us even once after our meal was delivered. Not sure why.
Cream of mushroom soup was amazing! I wish it was a menu staple. Rib Eye Patty Melt was everything I needed.
It's all about the staff. They were absolutely fantastic.
food was amazing! had the pancakes with a side of bacon, both so delicious!
I think our choice of food might of been not right for us. Your chilaquiles had to be the worst chilaquiles cI've ever had. They were dry . I can accept the fact that they were very different than what I've experienced in many restaurants but they were just bad. Our whole group thought same.
Service was very sparse, however we were very patient and understanding that most restaurants are understaffed as we reopen and they are not trained all the way. I've run into service problems at eateries this past month. You are not the only ones. But staff up and don't keep it lean otherwise people will go elsewhere.
Friendly service! A little bit slow in checking back to refill water and iced tea. Probably due to COVID required spacing of tables ie, servers have to walk farther from kitchen to tables. (I would recommend larger glasses). Good for casual dining. Nice cocktail menu. We’ll go back.
Inside was noisy. And the water cups were extremely small. Please get larger cups.
Refills on drinks was a little slow. The the waiter was good. Food was delicious environment was friendly
Awesome place, awesome service and excellent food. You won’t go wrong with choosing Great Maple.
The Great Maple never disappoints. So glad that you guys are back open in Pasadena, you were greatly missed & I couldn’t wait to come patronize you. Can’t wait until the deviled eggs are available on the menu as well, yum yum.
Very nice, stylish and reliable American restaurant with a broad varsity of dishes, some focused on comfort food. Handsome decor, great and friendly service make for a consistently enjoyable dining experience.
Great food and excellent service
Beautiful spot. Food was delicious! Just wish there was bottomless mimosas
This was the first timeI had eaten at this restaurant. We were a group of six people and we enjoyed our lunch very much. The staff was very attentive. We waited about 1/2 hour for our food but the staff apologized and brought us out plenty of bread.
Amazing food!!! Great service!
The staff was extremely friendly and attentive! Loved it and will definitely be coming back to try out their brunch service!
Only had salt and pepper packets, no happy hour in spite of advertising in elevator, the prime rib was so-so, rewarmed with hot and cold sections. The chicken and bacon-doughnut were fabulous as always.
Very nice dining experience.
Service and Food - AMAZING!! Definitely coming back soon!
Food was delicious
Great Maple was soooo missed during the COVID period and I’m thrilled that you’re back! Service was friendly and fast, dining room directions were clear, and as always, the food was yummy! I love when managers come over and ask about how you’re doing and actually hang around to listen to what you have to say. Any kind of positive response is ALWAYS appreciated. Didn’t have room for the outstanding donuts, but we’ll definitely be back for those another visit.
Donut chicken was ok. Dark meat was used instead of white meat, so the taste wasn't so good.
Nice and quiet atmosphere, waitress was extremely attentive. Would definitely go back.
First post quarantine dining out experience, we chose to enjoy brunch on patio. A few menu changes, but all our favorites still there. Tables widely spaced, servers in masks & face guards they kept a few feet away.. made it hard to hear/be heard. I blame that for a missed side of their killer maple glazed bacon , but no excuse for delivering plain, unglazed clearly over charred bacon. Kitchen wasn’t in it’s usually sharp form... service in general was a bit slow.... I’m going to chalk this up to slow reopening and will be back.
Great place, good food, server did not meet my expectations.
So happy to have Great Maple open again! I was there on their 2nd night reopened. The tables are limited and socially distanced and the food was a great as always. They were very accommodating when I complained it was cold inside. Their clean margarita was refreshing. I had breakfast for dinner, prosciutto eggs Benedict.
They have changed the menu at Pasadena. We were very disappointed they switched out the pasta in the turkey bolognese dish, and used burrata instead of the Parmesan shavings. What’s the point of burrata if it gets warm, it’s just boring mozzarella. Too creamy, it was missing the nutty sharp taste of parm needed for this particular bolognese. The dish didn’t work for us and the burrata just became a weird clump. I got the maple glazed salmon, didn’t taste any maple, the salmon was undercooked, and did not have a good sear. The cauliflower and green bean side dish that went with it was one note and tasted only of garlic and steamed cauliflower (try charring, please!). At least the portabello fries were still good but the aioli was too mayo heavy, needed a tad more seasoning. I used to love Great Maple but I cannot recommend them at the moment. We will try again for brunch. Finally, the hostess or manager was quite off-putting. As soon as she sat us down, she didn’t say hello but went straight to “You can only be here for 90 minutes.” No warm welcome and her voice was not at all kind-sounding, just authoritative. At least our server was nice.
Had a great time a brunch with the girls! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Will definitely be coming back!
We love Great Maple . Fist time at the Pasadena location. Perfect setting. Great staff. Excellent food!
Celebrated my sons birthday. It was good.
Lunch was great, I had a salad, turkey burger and fried chicken. All was satisfying and just the right amount for lunch. Mac and cheese was delicious. Service was good.
Great service and delicious food.
Food was good but it took 20 minutes to receive our first drinks after ordering and an hour and a half to get our food.
We were here for a gymnastics tournament at Pasadena convention center and ate here Friday night, then Saturday and Sunday. We couldn’t get enough! Best restaurant in the area. Loved the portobello mushroom fries, chicken and bacon doughnuts for dinner and then the chilaquiles were amazing for breakfast were amazing.
Waiter was rude
Great setting, great food, great service...what more do you want! In fact ......better than the last time I went...and I loved it then too!
We enjoyed our food but had a few snafus. Old cream for the coffee etc. but our server was very accommodating and available to help. We will be back!
