I took my daughter here for Mother's Day and we had an amazing dinner. Our Server was fantastic and knowledgeable, and the food was really amazing. The wine pairing was spot on. I have a gluten allergy and I always appreciate when a chef will work around that and the meal still maintains it texture and flavor - I was especially excited to have a gluten free dessert that actually had some crunch. It was an awesome meal and we will be back. We have also been here for brunch and it was also outstanding.
Mother’s Day dinner was a disappointing prix fixe 4 course menu at $85. I didn’t care for any of the items except the lobster bisque and the pan seared chicken. Goat cheese and beet ravioli was too sour, the strawberry pistachio mousse dessert was unappealing. However the ambiance and service were very good and helped to make up for the less than stellar meal.
This review is to provide constructive criticism of their operations and logistics. This restaurant needs to work on their operations and logistics. I got in line to check-in and the person ahead of me was complaining about waiting 30 mins for a table when she made reservations. This already looked bad to me (and probably to other guests as well). I also made a reservation for Mother's Day at 12:30pm and was wondering if I would get bad luck and had to wait that long as well. WELL, I DID. My family and I had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. The front service said it'll take "5-10 mins" to clean the table. My expectation when having a reservation is to be seated right away. Isn't that the point of making one? I also asked for indoor seating yet when I asked for an update, they said they had an open table outdoors. Ok, that's fine but why didn't they approach me and provide that update? Instead I had to ask.
Everything else was fine. Food was decent. Buffet had a lot of options. But definitely a bad first impression. Not sure if I would go through the trouble of celebrating Mother's Day here again.
Lovely aesthetic to this poolside restaurant and offers views of the famous bridge at the classic Langham Pasadena. We had a sunny location by the windows and familiar friends and faces did not go unnoticed.
Prime rib and Salmon did delight the diners. The Chef de Cuisine is Jason Yu and Sous Chef is Pierre McCray (the salmon grill lines emulated a steak) the spätzle was perfect.
Conclusively this was a light filled visit and nothing consumed inspired me to mouth "Je ne me sens pas bien." The dessert---in its lemony goodness was a work of art complete with living and most colorfully edible violet blossoms. Bravo to Jason and Pierre.
I wasn't that impressed with The Terrace. We went for Pasadena Restaurant Week and the service was just ok (slow and not very engaged) and there was a loud table near us. Appetizer choices were either a side of broccolini or fried chicken or shrimp. Just wasn't a very good value and we likely will not return. Many better restaurants in the Pasadena area.
Hotel looked and smelled old and needs a renovation- though very clean. Outside valet was not helpful with street parking, as there is no self parking and we did not want to valet the car. The food, however, was excellent and it was great to see so many gluten free items on the menu.
The Langham is one of the most beautiful spots in Pasadena. This is a great special occasion date night kind of place.
We Love the terrace! Ot is my favorite restaurant in Pasadena. My girlfriends and I go monthly for lunch and Birthdays.
We dined alfresco which was seems appropriate for "The Terrace." The location is poolside, so there will be the noise of people frolicking in the pool. Inside there is a pianist playing on a Baby Grand, but it cannot be heard outside. The sun was out, but the umbrellas shielded the sun - mostly. Cuisine is made-to-order omelettes or waffles, dim sum fare (including Peking Duck) and pastries. No carving station, no scrambled eggs or eggs benedict. Delightful, but more for special occasions.
Very good I had the filet and friends had the short rib, which was delicious. Patio seating is great.
A delicious brunch for Easter. Music, bottomless champagne and outstanding food!
The restaurant itself is fine, but the menu needs tweaking. As much as it seems they are trying for healthy options, there were no real vegetarian options and 75% of the vegetable apps were fried.
The service was good!
Hotel dining room looking out to the pool. Salmon was very delicious. Very good waiter and the service was great.
Foods were ok, service was not good
I love brunch at the Langham. It’s a little loud....but a great experience.
We reserved a patio table for Sunday Brunch, which I would recommend. It is much quieter than being inside. I ordered the 3 egg omelette with ham, bacon, and cheddar cheese. It was excellent. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their meals as well. The service was good, though not perfect. One of my friends had to ask three different servers to finally get some jam for her toast. The setting couldn’t have been better, next to the hotel pool and adjacent to an attractive Japanese garden, though you can’t quite see the garden from the patio. Overall, I enjoyed the Terrace very much and would definitely go there again.
Lovely hotel and restaurant. The service was impeccable. Great ambiance. Great place to get together with friends.
Told them it was for my niece's birthday, and no one cared to inquire or follow up with me.
Left very unhappy.
Baby shower was going on, and that got total attention and service.
Food was great. Brussel sprout appetizer was awesome. Emmy, Brett and Derek took great care of us. The place is beautiful. We will be back.
Clever menu and excellent service. Also nice happy hour and optional outdoor dining.
this is a very nice hotel set up and the restaurant serve in the patio outside, very nice environment.
The service is just fine, not at the level of the hotel rating. The food is fine, not at the level of the hotel reputation. anyway, i recommend it for the set up and environment.
Emmy was our server and was great! Food was fantastic. Grilled asparagus is some of the best I’ve ever had. Steak frites was delicious. Comped us a yummy dessert and 2 glasses of champagne for my bday. So nice. Came out with a candle and happy birthday written in chocolate. Above and beyond.
Gorgeouse interior, nicw delisios food and great service
Great and drinks amazing desserts, excellent service and nice ambiance.
The food for Dine LA wasn’t tasting that good, the environment was good. Valet parking was the worst services, there were 5-8 employees standing in the front, and they might lose your car positioning, it took around 30mins to find my SUV.
The dine L.A. menu is awful. Nothing tastes good. Beet salad is just cut beets in a plate, not a dish, skirt steak is hard to chew, dessert tastes funny. I couldn't finish it. Not worth it at all.
Food was ok. For the money, other options have more value. The people at next table were extremely noisy.
Recently dined at the Terrace and the food and service was outstanding. The menu had a wide variety of selections and the food was exceptionally prepared and presented. Would definitely recommend and return. Beautiful surroundings. Everything was top notch.
Brunch, Quick Bottomless Mimosas, Overwhelming California views & weather. Life is good in the blue!
Finally got to check out the brunch at the Langham this weekend and I must say it does impress. The brunch buffet with an omelette station, dumpling spread and unlimited mimosas for $60/pp is good value for money. There are also Ala carte options for non buffet fans. The pool side seating is very casual and took me a little by surprise for a luxury hotel I did expect a little more of an ambiance. The waiters are very attentive and there is also live music on the weekend. Valet is the only option for parking and is quite reasonable for $6. I would recommend the buffet here .
Birthday. But they never acknowledged it.
The place looks old now floors not so clean table not set for the holidays like flowers . Chairs need some remodeling windows bare . For Xmas eve dinner spent one hundred each with just one drink. Sorry it used to be grand
This place is iconic and everything an icon should be. It is beautiful, lively and grand. I recommend this for tea, fine dining, casual dining and an evening at the bar. The Langham is not to be missed.
This was our 2nd.visit. The first was dinner with a cousin who lives in Mass. and we hadn't seen him in years. He is a "foodie" and we all had a wonderful dinner with wine and....conversation and best of all- we were never hurried- it was long, wonderful event.
Because of that evening we suggested it to our friends, she's a jazz singer and has never been to the hotel, to meet for dinner. Most enjoyable.
Meh. Overpriced pedestrian hotel food
We had a light lunch. Very good food. Service was excellent, prompt, polite. We were setted on the terrace and my only observation is the fact that we were facing the pool, not the best view.
My partner and I went to The Terrace to celebrate our anniversary. Usually we have a good experience. Unfortunately the food left a little to be desired. I had the Turkey Cobb Salad. All the ingredients I asked for where there, including a hard avocado! Wait?!? I shouldn’t have had a hard avocado in my salad. I had to ask my server about this. He apologized, he brought me a ripe avocado by the time I finished my salad, too late! We’ll have to reconsider going to The Terrace again.
Outdoor seating a must. Extremely noisy inside. Pleasant but not particularly efficient service. Food nothing special, standard fare. Nice variety of menu choices.
Always a nice place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. One big problem, however, is the direct sunlight that cooks you in your seat, if you sit at a table on the left side of the restaurant. That there aren't blinds installed to shield a person is a real crime. It makes an otherwise pleasant experience virtually unbearable.
