Steakhouse | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

Amazing experience! Great steaks and sides only excelled by the staff... Chef Dominique was engaging as he personally set up our table location and visited us throughout the meal. We caught them on a rainy and not so busy week night.. so I'm sure we got extra special attention for our combined business and celebratory dinner. Our guests were seasoned food aficionados whom, at the end of the evening both said, literally, "that was some of the best food we have ever had!" We were blown away! Great time... will return soon. (Loved the "no corkage Tuesday" special too!) More

Steakhouse | San Gabriel Valley, Pasadena / San Gabriel

We had a family member visiting for her birthday. We chose this place as its close to us and we love the atmosphere/design, food/ drinks & the service is outstanding. Sara called us to confirm the reservation & let us chose our server, Melchor. Since we had a larger group, they sat us out on the patio, which was enclosed & heated. It was the first time we sat out there, & it was really nice & comfortable, and really easy to have a conversation with all 6 of us. Melchor started by bringing us Prosecco for the Birthday Celebration! Martin, the bartender made us a special drink, based on a drink we like somewhere else & he does his own, very different, take on it, which he has perfected & makes for us when we come in. Jorge, the Sous Chef, came out to help the guys, who wanted steak, chose what to get. Two of us had the Mushroom Ravioli, one had the flight of 3 Wagyu Steaks, 2 shared the Chateaubriand & the last had the New York Steak. We had a few sides also, the Mac n Cheese, Steak Fries and they gave us a trial the Crispy Brussel Sprouts... which my husband does not eat, but he actually liked them! The rest of us thought they were awesome. In fact, we all loved our food. They also brought out a bread pudding with a candle for the Birthday Girl, and we all ordered different desserts to share. Our guest said this was the best meal she has ever had! Ryan, the manager paid us a visit to see how our meal was, it was nice that he took the time. We have had the opportunity to go to the restaurant at different times of the week. Fridays & Saturdays are quite busy, but not unbearably noisy. Weekdays (they are closed Monday) are much slower, which I actually like, if you want to have a more quite or romantic atmosphere. Wednesdays are a bit busier than Tuesday/ Thursday. We are regulars at the Royce & Alexander's in Pasadena and we would put this restaurant up there with those, yet they all have different reasons we go to them, EST will become a part of our "circuit"!

Known as a mission city, San Gabriel is an artistic town where people love creativity and innovation. The food is a part of the entire scene with American fusion leading the way. Duck hash is made from duck confit, apricots, and chile jam and served at many of the American restaurants near the Cordova-style mission entrance. Mediterranean foods are a welcome addition to the area's diverse cuisine options with choices like spaghetti squash casserole with caramelized onions, organic tomatoes, zucchini and freshly made mozzarella cheese. Italian is another favorite, featured at fine dining establishments where you can get authentic handmade pasta and other provincial dishes.
