Wonderful food, service and overall experience. Situated in a remodeled train station with calming music and excellent serving staff. The prime rib dip was perfectly prepared and delectable. I enjoyed every morsel. The rest of my party enjoyed their burgers equally as much. A wonderful restaurant and experience which I highly recommend lunch or dinner.

Right at the Del Mar station in Pasadena is a really good restaurant called LA GRANDE ORANGE, and it is a fine place to dine. Everything I have had on their menu has been great. Good service + fine food = a perfect evening. Take the Gold Line and you won't even have to hassle parking. But if you do... More

We come here now and then for happy hour or lunch. I love the ambiance - lots of big windows and light, nice outdoor patio and convenient to the gold line so I can stop on the way home from work to meet a friend. The down side to me is the menu. It tries too hard, has too much... More

The food is AMAZING! The staff is welcoming and always provides great recommendations. And the environment is unique, it's a converted old train station. Easy to get to by metro, you walk off the metro and into the restaurant's courtyard; so for tourists without a rental car, it's accessible, definitely a must visit.

Great restaurant👏🏽Food is always on point! Service at times not consistent. Servers should be better coached in etticut. Servers that drop the check off without asking if we need anything else is a huge irritating practice. Spoke with Eric the manager and he said he would coach this culture. 👌🏽

I've been here several times and always liked it. But the last time I went for lunch I was a little disappointed. I don't know if the management changed or what, but the food wasn't quite as good as I remembered. Still a nice place to go for lunch or dinner and a good glass of wine.

We took our family for dinner here during a recent visit. This is obviously a local favourite by the number of people who frequent this restaurant. We came early and our waitress, who was sweet as could be, could barely get to our table and asked another waitress to get our drink order. I was okay with that but the... More

My sister and I were debating what type of food we would like for a late lunch/early dinner. I wanted a burger...we decided on la orange cafe. We started with the chips and guacamole, warm chips and the salsa and guacamole was some of the best I've tasted. Then we both ordered the green Chile burger with fries. The burger... More

This restaurant is located right off the Del Mar line & is easily accessible by all modes of transportation. I opted for the Del Mar salad; it was quite refreshing & the portion size just right. My friends both ordered soup & loved it. We happened to time it perfectly for happy hour which included $6 beers, LGO wines &... More

LGO is my family's favorite restaurant. Everyone has their favorites and every time, they are perfect. Tacos with handmade tortillas, tuna burger, mac n cheese, yum. The kids meals are a great deal. Don't forget to grab a free cookie on your way out.
