Everything was stellar, even the bread and butter. 5/5 for everything! We had Caesar salad, tagliatelle pasta, mushroom soup (to die for), sea bass, steak, and the apple strudel for dessert. Jalapeño margarita and husband had what he said was the best and smoothest dirty martini he’s ever had. Service was perfect, and it was busy but not loud, great vibe. Can’t wait to come back!

Wonderful meal and service. Menu doesn’t have a lot of options, however with food this good you don’t have to. We drive out there from OC to meet up with friends, but we’d make the drive again in a heartbeat.

The Arbour is our selfish kept secret, it's as good as it gets,
the cocktails, the food, the people are top class. If you haven't been there,
you're missing out one of the best restaurants in Southern California.

We had 3 waiters change within 10 minutes.
Our drink order of one glass of wine took 25 minutes.
We ordered oysters which came at the same time as the pasta.
The fries with the burger were cold.

The Arbour is fantastic! The food is incredibly delicious. We ordered the sea bass and the shrimp penne—both were unbelievable! We also had the apple pastry and vanilla bean cheesecake which definitely did not disappoint. We love the atmosphere too. It was a perfect evening from start to finish. We would highly recommend this Pasadena gem!

Great service; nice food presentations, and good cocktails! However the food was a bit on the saltier side which prevented me from giving 5 stars for food.

We had a REALLY great meal here with exceptional service. Oysters were top notch, octopus salad appetizer was perfection, shrimp pasta and the ahi tuna special were amazing. And I forgot to mention the martini and the wine our server suggested for pairing with our mains. Everything was spot on!
