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.

Dinner at The Arbour is always a memorable experience. The Shrimp Penne was amazing as was the Mushroom Soup (more like a bisque).

One of our favorite restaurants but haven't been here since the beginning of COVID. Still great ... unfortunately, the menu and wine list was downsized a bit. None the less we great to be back

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!

Enjoyed the food. We placed two orders of Duo of Duck, and two orders of cheeseburger. Everyone agreed that it was delicious. The server was attentive and checked back to see if we needed anything. We ordered one apple strudel and split between the four of us. The strudel was delicious with the vanilla bean ice cream. Can't say enough about the restaurant. Been here numerous times.

Our anniversary dine out at The Arbour was outstanding. All the dishes were delicious, flavorful, expertly prepared, and capably served. We dined alfresco on Lake Street which was not too noisy. The corn soup I ordered was superb, and the sea bass may be the most delicious fish I’ve ever eaten. Service was flawless. I’m pleased that our half-hour drive to find gourmet dining in the time of COVID was so well-rewarded.

I ask for a different server as my server wasn’t really friendly or knowledgeable about all, his treatment was no making me happy, but I never got what I want. My cup of water smells like eggs and my napkin was broken 😞 when I ask for my drink results my server forgot about it until he hear me to tell another bartender about that he reminded. So sad as I ask for a lady who last time she gave us the best service ever, she uses glasses, really nice person and knowledgeable about all, also Mr. Jesus was nice and better than our server was so bad my experience that I doubt I’ll return again.

The Arbour is a favorite of mine in Pasadena. The service is excellent and the food is incredible! I wish I could remember our waiters name, but he was so kind and attentive. We ate our way through the menu and had the most delicious appetizer, entrees, and dessert. I had the New York Sirloin and it was delicious, cooked to perfection. My fiancé had the artichoke risotto and let me have a few bites, we were in heaven! We commented multiple times on how delicious our food and drinks were. We will certainly be back the next time we are in Pasadena.
