The food, from a somewhat limited menu, is good and the service excellent. The particularly good deal is- no corkage charge for the first 2 bottles. The negative...they do not take reservations, so, unless you arrive REALLY early for dinner, you may have a wait...More

The food is always delicious and fresh. The service is friendly and prompt. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because you cannot sit more than 6 people at a table. This is frustrating when you have a party of 7 or...More

This is a favorite in Pasadena. People come for the food and drinks. The menu is predictable and the consistency is always good. Be prepared to wait if you come during prime time. The reservation process sometimes is disorganized and chaotic. Despite this drawback, it...More

As far as I know, they don't take reservations. I always go mid to late afternoon, even on Mondays. They are jammed but worth the wait. I'm in LA all the time and this is my favorite restaurant. Especially the burgers... More
