    It took over 40 minutes to get our first course. Another 35 minutes to get the second course. Leisurely pace is one thing. Being ignored is another. The main.course, lamb chop, was cold, overcooked and dry. For the money we spent, not a good value at all

    It was Candle Light Dinner - four course dinner was great. However, I don't think I'd do the Candle Light Dinner again. Too dark, couldn't really enjoy the presentation.

    Arbour’s introductory candlelight dinner was a success, 4 choices available in each of the 4 courses. My husband and I tasted and enjoyed 8 different dishes. Execution, presentation and flavor profiles were all excellent. Restaurant’s ambiance was delightful with candlelight and piano music in the background. Hopeful the Arbour continues these special dinners…resounding success in our opinion.

    The Arbour is my new favorite restaurant in Pasadena! I just went for the first time, and everything we had was delicious! I started with the roasted mushroom soup and got the cavatelli pasta with pesto and burrata as my entree. The pasta dish was definitely in my top favorite dishes of all time. The ambiance and service were on point. We would definitely recommend The Arbour to anyone and look forward to going back.

    The service was poor. The server was very nice…but didn’t check back with us often enough. Waited too long and decided to skip dessert. Had to ask the greeter at the front to get the check. Went to the restaurant for my husband’s birthday…was a flop.

    We hadn't dined here for a few years and were impressed. Everyone enjoyed their orders, commenting on how delicious the food was, and I appreciated the server's eagerness to find out how to adapt some of the dishes to make them vegan. The adapted dishes I ordered were equally delicious with very fresh ingredients. It was wonderful to have the option to sit outside although outside there isn't as pleasant as dining al fresco on Green Street at another restaurant we go to often. But there's little, if anything, The Arbour can do about that. And the food and service were fantastic! Can't wait to go again!

    We’ve been to the Arbor a handful of times since it opened and it has remained consistently good, both in terms of food and service. Whether you want to grab dinner and drinks at the bar or be seated at a table we find that both are comfortable ways to dine. Last night we made a reservation and brought some friends with us. We were seated at a booth and the glass partitions between the booth made for a comfortable conversation without a lot of background noise. We all enjoyed our meals and cocktails. Our friends commented on how lovely the ambience is and they will now be returning customers. The prices here are comparable with what you pay elsewhere for the quality and selection. The menu has a good variety with something for everyone.

    Must visit for anyone interested in Farm to Table. Flavors were great on my Watermelon Drop, Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad, and Burger. You can taste the care in each and every bit. Lorna, our service was right on time with refills on waters, and was knowledgeable about the menu. Place is beautiful. Exposed beams make a intimate and welcoming setting. After sunset the place flickers with candlelight accentuated with warm lighting. Visit for the food and experience.

    Food was quite good, salads were fresh and delicious. Entrees lacked finesse, bucatini was heavy on the everything so was similar to a cheesey tomato pasta one might make at home. Duck was $42 but breast was dense and tough so not well prepared as most duck breast is quite moist when prepared properly. Confit leg was yummy but clearly the easier one to pull off. Other than that we enjoyed it. I Have a feeling the experience would be better inside, as we sat outside without a table cloth.

    The food was excellent. Took ten minutes for someone to come over for a drink order even though the restaurant was not even half full. Most of the staff was standing around talking amongst themselves. Once the waiter did come he came often enough to be acceptable. The food was better than expected. My wife had lobster risotto which she thought was excellent, and I had the steak which was perfectly cooked.
