Get free birthday entree. Love going there for special events. Lobster bisque soup and risotto is one of my favorite meals.

Central Park has become our favorite Pasadena dining spot. It's friendly and cozy, and the food is terrific (try the sand dabs). We enjoy everyday breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and have celebrated a milestone birthday there. The food and service are always consistent.

Food is awesome with great wait staff. Food and drink were delicious. The tuna appetizer is the best along with the sand dabs. I always order the fish "crispy" on the grill.
