    Stopped in for dinner before Descanso Gardens’ Enchanted. The chicken was outstanding as were the croquettes. A few more shareable app options would be a great addition. Glad we tried out!

    After reading reviews on this site about Thanksgiving dinner restaurants in Pasadena from 2021 we chose The Arbour because of its positive reviews for food, ambience and service. We are new to CA and needed honest reviews to guide us for a small TGiving with just 4 of us. Thank you Open Table Fam. The Arbour was perfect. Gréât service, lots of yummy food and drinks and dessert and coffee. We weren’t rushed, we felt comfortable and this is a holiday tradition we hope to repeat. Thank you Arbor chefs and staff!

    Our favorite restaurant. We have never had a bad meal, experience, interaction… anything. The staff is top notch. The owner Ian is incredibly sweet. The plates are healthy portions of deliciousness. Drinks and wine selections are great. I’m always telling people about this place, which for some reason, still feels like a hidden gem. We were celebrating our anniversary of getting engaged here 3 years ago and the whole team was just so sweet. This will always be a special place for us.

    We had a great meal at The Arbour while visiting Pasadena from out of state. We sat outside where they were great about accommodating our dog. Lorna and the rest of the servers were excellent. We all loved our food. The croquettes, the shrimp pasta, lobster risotto, and the bucatini with vodka sauce were all delicious. Would definitely return!

    Everything was wonderful and we we’re heading to a concert at the Greek Theater and thankful they were opened on a Monday! The restaurant is very comfortable and the service was great. The chef was very accommodating with us asking for substituting the potato fingerlings for the au gratin potatoes.

    This a romantic venue with delicious food. The staff is friendly and accommodating. They give you space and time to enjoy a nice meal. The meal is consistently timely, fresh and mouth savoring. You can taste the freshness and quality. It is also family friendly, with a off menu kid options. They go out of their way to meet the guest where they are at: family, date night, celebration or GNO.

    Very nice atmosphere. Comp bread was delicious. Oyster appetizers and Caesar salad were very good. Bucatini, salmon salad and seared ahi were all appreciated. The duo of duck was a bit disappointing as it was a little too chewy and a bit gamey. Service level was decent but we felt a bit rushed. We wanted to accommodate our server to ensure we were out in 90 minutes for next party. Quite okay with us.

    I think the meal was good but not great on everything. The wine recommendation was good and the appetizer salad, although would have liked more brussel sprouts or full pieces, seemed like mostly the ends. The green beans and onion sauce on the chicken entree were fabulous but the chicken was so-so. Tender but not crispy enough or flavorful enough so won't order again. Ambience and service were wonderful.

    I love the new menu. We’ve eaten at The Arbour many times & always enjoyed all of the various menu items. And as if they couldn’t surpass their last menu, they certainly have. The special starter of gnocchi with pork belly was outstanding. The seasonal apple salad with arugula & pecans is a winner. I had the bucatini with ground pancetta in a vodka cream tomato sauce & it was fantastic. My daughter had the lobster risotto & it was so delicious. Portions are generous- We could’ve easily split everything. We topped it off with the warm apple strudel with a salted caramel sauce. Yum. There’s no wonder that The Arbour is one my five favorite Pasadena restaurants.

    It took over 40 minutes to get our first course. Another 35 minutes to get the second course. Leisurely pace is one thing. Being ignored is another. The main.course, lamb chop, was cold, overcooked and dry. For the money we spent, not a good value at all
