The ambience was beautiful the food was pretty good the prices we’re about what you’d expect being at a five-star hotel yet at 7:30 in the evening still having kids screaming in the pool nearby playing Marco Polo was a little bit irritating

Outdoor poolside makes you feel on vacation. The $8 valet charge for eating there plus tip does not.

We went for a late breakfast/early lunch. The waiter did not bring my toast with my breakfast. Had to remind him 3 times. Each time, he said someone would bring it right away. He finally brought it 60 minutes after my breakfast was served and everyone else at the table was done eating, even though I insisted that I no longer wanted it at that point. I also asked if they could bring a dessert for my sister’s birthday. They forgot and had to be reminded. They brought it 15 minutes after the table was cleared and we were ready to leave. It’s a beautiful restaurant and the food was good (not great), but service was very disappointing.

We went to lunch at around 2:30 and the service was atrocious. The waitress disappeared at some points. And it took 10 minutes to even get water. Then no one could figure out how to use my OpenTable credit card voucher... very frustrating!

Came here for DineLA & was given those menus, but then the waiter let us know after we put in our order that DineLA was over. No exceptions were made to accommodate. Food was underwhelming (had the octopus pasta). Scallops on the other hand was good. We were seated outside. Place was not busy at all/vibe was very dull unfortunately.

I thought the Terrace was lovely. I've eaten here many times. This seemed to be somewhat new: lots of ground pepper garnish on plates and food. I really don't like pepper...and I wish the menu had mentioned this. Not everyone is a fan of pepper.

Our waiter was extremely inattentive, so much so that I needed to flag down another waiter to get any service. (The other waiter was very apologetic and helpful, as we would expect.)

Service terrible. Food so, so. Flies all over the terrace. Expensive. When asked for a coffee cup to go, I was charged $4.00, even though I’d paid for coffee with my meal. Definitely a place to avoid for an important breakfast meeting.

went for dim sum brunch. dim sum was just ok. very difficult for roast beef station carver to find medium temp slice. everything was well done. server didn’t offer included mimosas.made us wait for 25 minutes when we had a 10am reservation. there were a number of empty tables when we were seated. so why were we made to wait? clearly staff was not organized or prepared to start the day. definitely overpriced at $58

The service was less than what I expected. Our beef dishes was ordered to medium rare, but came out to medium. Service was overall mediocre. It took a while for our server to arrive. Our hostess had to take our orders.

This is a lovely location for a business lunch, a special lunch, or any lunch at all, really. The ambiance is classic and casual. It is perfect and the food was divine. The only issue we had was that this is, indeed, a hotel, and the hotel's pool is next to the restaurant, so you get the usual kids yelling. Not a big deal. There was a couple with a baby - who allowed the baby to scream - which wasn't so great, but overall, we enjoyed it very much. Highly recommended, sans baby screaming.

Truly disappointing. We went for Sunday brunch while visiting the area. We had a reservation but had to wait. Our wait staff was very polite but very inattentive. We waited so long to order, long wait for food, had to ask for water refills from different server, had to ask for the check, etc. Food was Ok but nothing spectacular. My omelet was cold but others were fine. It is a nice setting but we would never go back. There are lots of great places to eat in Pasadena that cost less and provide far better service and frankly better food too.

I usually get excellent service at the Langham but I ate at the Terrace twice yesterday. Both times, the service was poor. Servers were not around. I had to flag to get water, coffee, napkins...

The setting is elegant California casual and the service was exceptional: the food itself pales slightly in comparison to the overall vibe. We strolled the beautiful grounds after lunch, taking in both a wine tasting event on the lawn and finished with a drink and sorbets in The Tap Room. All in all a wonderful afternoon.

We had the worst service and the worst meal. My husbands steak was like a piece of leather and overall I would give this restaurant 2 stars. Foe such a pretty hotel with all of the looks of fine decor the food is just terrible.

I was underwhelmed by the Sunday dim sum brunch at the Terrace. I did not think it was a good value. Overall the food was good but I expected more for the $50+ price tag.I felt that there should have been more dim sum options since it it is advertised as a dim sum buffet. The dim sum were decent but not wow. The other breakfast food items were good but not too much selection. For the amount of money there should be more seafood like crab legs and shrimp cocktail. I did enjoy the congee, smoked salmon, and waffles very much. The desserts were also good but they never refilled the macarons. Service was mixed. Generally very good, the staff helped me to navigate opening the steamer baskets to get my items, but were slow to pick up plates and never asked to refill our drinks.

servers should treat English speaking Asian nice as well as Anglo American ..
i paid 20% tips for my breakfast, server only came to check table one time without my eyes language. and my next table got so many times because he is a ....
important here: if i had sent 10 Asian and one white to your restaurant in different days by my law firm , you would have a big punishment in the court room. i would very appreciate if you can confirm you receiver this very rare comments

June 17, 2019. So DISAPPOINTING to have breakfast on the patio. Gorgeous setting BUT (1) the food was outrageously priced for an omelet. $24. No fruit. It said 3 eggs but it seemed like 2. My friend had the avocado toast which was decent. (2) Service was slow and it wasn't crowded when we arrived. (3) I asked for the heater to be turned on and the person said they'd have to close the umbrella in case of catching fire. An hour later a server turn on the heater! Maybe they don't know the rules. (4) $8 per person validated parking. So! For a $60 breakfast (coffee is $6), a terrible omelet (only hashbrowns on the plate with it - bread did come with it). a tip to the server (mediocre service), paying for2 cars for valet parking, tip to the valet for 2 cars, we spent almost $100! I do a lot of entertaining clients and I will go to Julienne in San Marino or Green Street restaurant in Pasadena. This is a Langham Hotel. They only have the atmosphere going for them.

Ambiance is perfect and the service is excellent. We ordered New York steak and Spanish octopus pasta. We were so disappointed. Pasta was bland and no taste. The squid is dry and unappetizing.
Our only consolation is the friendly service of our waitress. It's a pity that such a nice place can have this kind of food

We went to the Terrace for a group lunch specifically to accommodate my dad who has difficulty hearing. Fernando served us with perfect grace and humor and ensured we all were comfortable and happy. When a noisy group came in, the manager kindly moved us into a private room so we could continue our lunch comfortably. It was excellent! Hats off to them! They truly showed what good service is, exemplifying the Ritz Carlton motto of ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen. Bravo!

It was really fun and had excellent service. A little noisy but nothing that I couldn’t deal with. The food was all really good except the charcuterie plate was probably sitting out a little too long. Loved that they had bottomless mimosas!

We had a lovely dinner there, but brunch was pretty terrible. I was celebrating my bachelorette brunch and it was a big disappointment. I don't know if they were understaffed that morning , but it was impossible to get anything we needed. We sit without even water for a long time. We had to ask for things several times. By the time we got what we had requested we were done with our meals. Also, my order was messed up, but I didn't want to make a fuss about it since I was with a large group. It was also overpriced for the amount of food we got. I would definitely have dinner there again, but never brunch.
