Seafood | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

Recently went to Beer & Claw with a friend for Happy Hour. Food was tasty. Our server was sweet, but clearly had not been trained AT ALL. She knew nothing we asked about. The ambiance should’ve been a dimly-lit bar scene, but they had the lighting up way too high — like they were prepping for surgery! 🙄 I’d go back, just to see if we hit it on an off night. More

Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch
1. Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch
(562)
$$$$
American | Pomona, Pasadena / San Gabriel

Securing reservations was a bit frustrating. I checked for same night reservations on Open Table and was told no tables were available the entire night. Checked for following night and received same response (in midweek?). I finally got a reservation through their direct website. We were greeted nicely at desk and were escorted to our window table on time. Our server, Breanna, was very cordial but was new and not to well briefed regardig the menu. But she did her best. No ordering from a regular menu. It was a 3 course prix fix at $35/pp. Our final bill was $90. They don't accept tips, but rather a donation was recommended. The servings of each course was what one would expect during restaurant week, smaller portions, but higher prices. In my opinion, if you are dining in this kind of environment where chefs work with culinary students, you shouldn't have to pay quite so much for experimental dining, certainly not a match for your more upscale restaurants, especially if the food was below outstanding.

Contemporary Italian | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

Only stumbled upon Union via instagram and can’t believe I’ve been out of the loop for 5.5 years!! Food was great and the service was perfect. I will skip the salad next time and go with the fresh sourdough bread and any pasta dish. The meatballs were, well... amaze balls! Can’t wait to try brunch. More

Discover Pasadena

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.
