Something was going on in the kitchen, it just seemed a little slow...our waitress was great though, definitely attentive and hustling. Made good recommendations and was friendly without being intrusive. We enjoyed the food and the family friendly atmosphere. We would definitely go back!

Booked 10 minutes before and got right in , that was great . The only problem was that we ordered the two egg breakfast and the server didn’t ask how we liked eggs cooked , and I didn’t think to remind my husband . Suffice it to say he didn’t like his breakfast at all , runny eggs ruined everything for him . The cocktails the server recommended were great . Next time I need to check how the eggs are cooked , and it was too late to send back as we needed to be somewhere quickly .

It was soooo good! Any restaurant where I can have a pasta dish made with ground poultry instead of beef is an automatic win. The Turkey Bolognese was delicious! And the beignets!! Ooooh mercy...yummy. And our server - Daniel - was the best. Courteous, attentive and funny. I will definitely visit Great Maple again. ;)

We were excited to try Great Maple, and it was ok. Not great, not bad. My husbands steak had no seasoning, the calamari was fine, my prime rib sandwich was mediocre. It was forgettable for us, not good and not bad.
The service was better than the food, and the restaurant is absolutely lovely inside and out.
My cocktail was great! That I’ll remember.

I was looking for a place with walking distance from Pasadena Civic Auditorium and found Great Maple restaurant. The picture online of the restaurant was very small and I thought the restaurant maybe like a fast food place I was very surprised by this place. Me and friends were shocked how comfortable this place was. The girl served us was very friendly. I had turkey burger and my friend had a veggie burger but it turned out the veggie burger actually tasted better not like my turkey burger was not good. My friend really like her veggie burger she went back the next day and took another friend there. It was a great place to gather with friends for lunch or dinner 👍

The food was decent. But the service was so extremely slow. We sat down at 12:15 and didn't get our order until after 1PM. Took forever to get the check; the manager kept stopping by because our server was too busy tending to a larger party next to us. He forgot our water, and our drinks went without refills all meal. The only redeeming piece of the meal was the S'mores donuts. Highly recommended.

The maple bacon donuts were the best we’ve ever had! The flatiron steak was delicious but it needed more chimichuri. Service was very attentive and decor was simple but elegant. We’ll definitely be back!

The Brie and Kale salad is one of my favorite treats in Pasadena and then, of course, there are the beignets. ❤️❤️ My friend enjoyed the vegan chili and we both liked the Brie mini grilled cheese, but a bit more cherry chutney would have been great. By the time we realized this, the sandwiches were gone!

For having reservations, I found it unprofessional and a bit rude to seat us right by the front door (the only table by the door at that). It was a rainy day so it was cold and we dealt with people walking and out hitting the back of our chairs so yeah...

I took my brother and sister in law for a post Mother’s day and birthday brunch and they enjoyed the food.

We couldn't decide what to order so we each ordered an appetizer and a main dish and shared it three ways. We got to taste a little of everything. My favorite is the cauliflower hummus!

Will definitely come back to try more dishes!

Although I would recommend this restaurant for food and ambiance, our service left us flat. The place was not overly busy but our drinks and appetizers took forever and we were left unattended several times for long periods. Our waitress was nowhere to be found.

We decided to go for Mother’s Day a day early and it paid off. We were greeted and seated immediately once our reservation was confirmed. We had a nice outdoor table and service began quickly. The food is excellent. Nothing more to say. If you haven’t eaten here do it. Not a bad selection to be had. Mimosas are yummy. Don’t forget the donut! Enjoy.

I went here for Sunday brunch. It was so loud and hot it was hard to have a conversation with people at my table of 5. The food was ok, not sure why they put cheese or heavy sauces on everything. It’s a pretty restaurant, our waiter was very nice. I think they were just too busy to be good.
