Smitty's Grill Ratings and Reviews
Have eaten at Smitty's Grill a number of times and the food is consistently good. Great main courses and salads. This time I had chicken piccata with asparagus and a cup of clam chowder, all excellent. It was lunch time and got a little loud but still able to hear friends talk. Really nice service, thanks!
Smitty's is one of the best 'go-to' places in Pasadena for a special occasion or just a good meal. I have a great experience each visit. Upscale, friendly and professional, you're always treated wonderfully like family but home - with white table cloths - to celebrate something special. I absolutely recommend it.
The service was outstanding. Attention to detail was impeccable. My Sea Bass was very good. The boneless ribs were poor. As part of our anniversary dinner they gave us complementary flowers and. Dessert. They seated us at a large table for two so we were very comfortable. I would recommend this place again, especially for special occasions because they make you feel very special.
We had a FANTASTIC meal!!! The food was delicious, the service was attentive, the desserts were incredible, and the ambiance was festive and unhurried. Not surprising that the bill came to $185 for the two of us, but that was not unexpected. Definitely a place to come for special occasions— it will not disappoint!!!
Our post-Christmas lunch at Smitty's was absolutely lovely. The restaurant was festively decorated for the season adding to the ambiance.
We polished off the Smitty's Famous Meatloaf, the Rattlesnake Baby Back Ribs, and the Prime Rib Sandwich - topped off by a shared Fruit Crisp a la mode. All were scrumptious!
I am a local Concierge and refer a TON of business to all the Smith Bros. eateries. I love them all, but Smitty's has a wonderful "local" feel to it. I especially LOVE Judy and always ask for her as my server . Food is consistently good. Noise lever could be a bit less for my preference!
Food and ambiance are always excellent. However, when ordering a house Cabernet I was told the house wine was out of stock but they had a Justin instead. I accepted that as an alternative only to find upon receiving bill that the 2 glasses I had were $18 per glass for a total of $36. If they are unable to offer a house wine as requested, the server should most certainly tell you the price of the alternative they are offering. I NEVER would’ve selected a single glass of wine priced at $18. Shame on our server. We were shocked and felt tricked.
Great food and service - however the gal who changed my reservation when I phoned on Dec 19th at 7 pm said there'd be a table for us in the bar area at noon on the 20th, and when we go there, there wasn't a reservation for us! However - the Bartendress, Manager/Host and Waiters were kind and helpful - we ate at the bar, the food as usual: outstanding!
It's always great coming to Smitty's for the holidays. The noise level @ lunch during the week is definitely energetic, but that buzz sets the tone with Christmas energy. Love the decorations and the frosty cold martinis! People catch the excitement and it makes your ofc lunch or special occasion better. Paul was our waiter, great service, but not hovering. He seemed to know when we needed him. We didn't feel neglected. Great time had by all.
Smitty's never disappoints. Great American comfort food always delivered with elan. Service is always professional and knowledgeable. A shout-out to Moses who allowed our party to leisurely dine while keeping an eye on our needs. Always a good choice when in Pasadena.
Great ambiance! Awesome Chef’s specials! We were a table of five and ordered 3 appetizers at first, two fish of the day, one cioppino, one chicken piccata and a burger. Everything came out fast warm and of course the ladies were served first. It was a great experience and our server was very proactive too. Just a tiny suggestion, the font of the wine list needs to be a little bit larger so you can read better.
Went to Smitty's Grill yesterday to have lunch with a friend. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays and was very festive. My friend was unexpectedly 20 minutes late but no one bothered me after initially asking if I wanted to order something to drink. I ordered the Carrot Ginger Bisque before my meal which was delicious and had the King Salmon for my entrée. The salmon, mashed potatoes and sauté spinach were so good, I ate everything on my plate! It was so good I almost felt like licking the plate, LOL. My friend had a salad and the beef short ribs. This was her first time here and she was really impressed by the ambiance and the food. This was my third time at the restaurant and like the other two visits, the food and service was excellent!
The occasion was my wife’s birthday which we celebrated with friends at Smitty’s. My highest recommendation and regards goes to our server, Judy. Not only did she serve us efficiently, she made the experience fun. My wife & I and our friends who celebrated with us give her a “high five”. Thanks Judy for making our time at Smitty’s fun!
4.5 stars. We enjoyed a delicious dinner with friends. Depending on what is ordered, the food can be a bit pricey. However, the quality is excellent and well worth it for that special night out. The staff was friendly and very busy - which affected the service just a bit. However, not enough to keep us from coming back again soon.
The food was prepared perfectly...we got the ribeye steak, prime rib, chicken pot pie and Lake Superior white fish. It's nice that we were allowed to switch out side dishes. The service was impeccable and the bartender makes one of the best cosmos I've ever had. A great place to take friends.
