About

This restaurant is permanently closed. POP Champagne Bar & Restaurant is a warm and welcoming place where friends gather for good times and where dates enjoy a romantic setting. POP is located in Old Pasadena in a historic building that retains many of its original features — brick walls, plank floors, an open- beam ceiling, and Batchelder tiles.

POP’s dinner menu starts with small bites like tuna tartare and oysters, and goes on to include entrée favorites such as truffle mac & cheese, Jidori chicken, and steak frites. It also includes salads, cheese and charcuterie platters, and caviar service. Our much-praised dessert menu presents classics such as crème brûlée and a soufflé du jour, as well as inventive temptations such as a lemon tart with homemade basil sorbet. All of our offerings are made in-house.

I have been a fan of POP for nearly 5 years now, and I'm very sorry to hear they're closing in August. Not moving to another location. Closing. Also, they have a new chef, and the menu has changed considerably. No more Champagne Chicken, for instance. If you've got time to stop by before it closes, try the Popcorn Chicken appetizer - plenty to share with the table. The Chicken Liver Toast, while not served the way I'd expected, was delicious. POP burger is also excellent - the Port Salut cheese on it is mild but very tasty. They still have souffles for dessert, as well as other yummy choices. But in August, they'll be gone.

The staff was lovely.
All of the wine we ordered was delicious!
The deviled eggs were great! Highly recommend.
The steak was pretty good and was cooked well.

I wouldn’t recommend the cheese & charcuterie board though. Two of the meats tasted like they were rancid and most of the cheese tasted like it had been cut and stored open in the fridge for at least a week.

We were disappointed to discover upon arrival that POP had a set buffet for Mother's Day, with limited items, in place of their standard brunch menu. However, the really disappointing part was our server, Joe. His greeting to us (or lack thereof) consisted of him telling us the prices of their mimosas and the price of the buffet, and telling us that we could just go to the buffet. That's it. My mother has dietary needs, so I asked him if there was a possibility to accommodate a vegetarian option, which was not a part of the buffet. Without hesitating, he just said no. He did not ask, or care to ask, a manager. He did not have any concern for the reason we asked for a vegetarian option. The limited food selection was fine, but I heard other servers describing what was available in the buffet, and actually greeting their tables. The restaurant was not that busy, and I really did not see any excuses for this extremely poor service. I was in the restaurant industry for 5 years, and I am very forgiving when a server struggles. This one was different. It just seemed like our server did not really care. I'm hoping the experience is vastly improved if & when I decide to come back.

Joe was great; attentive, accommodating and funny.

The sweet flight and classic champagne cocktail were delicious. The Bellini Noir just tasted like champagne and red wine, no peach to be found.

The crispy gnocchi was delicious; the prosciutto toast was decadent; the steak portion of the steak frites was boring and tasted like regular ground beef, but the truffle fries were excellent. The truffle Mac and cheese wasn't anything to get excited about, though, and the chicken sandwich was good. The lemon tart was different but the side of basil sorbet was the real star of that dessert.

The six of us enjoyed our meal and will probably come back if we're in the area.

The ambience was fantastic. A female singer did an amazing job with cover songs. The food was good, but the time it took to get our table's complete order was terrible. 15 minutes gap between first entree and final entree. Was not impressed.

This was our first visit to Pop Champagne. The staff was very friendly; however, service was extremely slow. When we arrived, the restaurant was not busy at all and it still took well over an hour (maybe an hour and a half?!) for us to receive our food. Thank goodness we ordered an appetizer as soon as we sat down, and we were throughly enjoying each other's company! A manager came over to apologize for the wait, but we did notice a table near us that was seated probably a half hour after us, about the same number of people in their party, received their food long before we did. We speculated they received our food. Overall the food was good, the menu seemed intriguing, so I may visit again to give it another try.

Very alcohol forward flavors for scallop dishes.

Prefix menu was okay, but the food lacked quality. Our waiter did not ask us how we wanted our steaks, my date and I were given 2 steaks that were cooked very differently. Price was very expensive, maybe it was just Valentines day.

Wish there were more options of small bites without cheese, literally everything had cheese in it. So going for a girl's night it was either a cheese plate, cheese dip, or flat bread with cheese on it.
little disappointed at the variety
