Greeted and seated right away by our favorite server Jennifer. Clean and crisp white tablecloths. Fine wine. Tried new dish tonight and was not disappointed. Food prepared here is great. But the service is why we come back. More

Afternoon Tea | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

The Langham is an awesome location, well maintained and great ambiance. However, a few improvements at the afternoon tea venue would make the experience even better. The room where afternoon tea is served was uncomfortably cold. The salmon and shrimp finger sandwiches were great. Didn’t care for the Apple, and the cucumber and egg salad were very skimpily made. It would also be great if outdoor seating were available for afternoon tea. More

Contemporary Italian | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

A friend and I shared bread, carrots, squid ink pasta with lobster, and a zabaglione tart. All were outstanding, and unique in flavor and preparation. The service was perfect. One nit: the price for an order of bread was $11, which seemed high. To be fair, the freshly baked bread was wonderful, as was the creamy butter, and it did come with flavorful pickled veggies, so...never mind! 😁 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.
