I met a friend here for dinner and it was fantastic! It was the 3rd time I have visited this restaurant. We both ordered the 3 course dinner. It's an appetizer, main course and a desert all for a very reasonable price. The pork chop is thick and juicy and a must have. The owner is present in the restaurant... More

What a great lunch! 3 course special, everything was delicious. Filling, but not too heavy a meal. Owners are great. The crab cake was full of crab ... the sauce with the salmon was exquisite, and the flourless chocolate cake ... the best I've ever had. I highly recommend going to Sesame Grill!!! You won't regret it!

Sesame Grill used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Arcadia. Food presentation and taste was fantastic. Now that the menu changed, we no longer dine there. The entrees are still presented well and service is always great, however, the taste is not what it used to be.

Sesame Grill is a special restaurant to both my husband and I because this is where we had our first meal as husband and wife (well really our 1st meal should have been at our wedding, but we were both a bit too nervous and too busy to really get any food down our system during the reception). After our... More

This is a beautifully-appointed restaurant with an amazing menu. The service was amazingly fast and friendly. They have a great price fixe menu. We went for lunch, and I had the French vegetable soup as a starter, with the grilled jumbo shrimp on creamy rice with creme brulee (spelled "burlee") on the menu for dessert. The soup was a melange... More

... until they changed it completely. We didn't even stay to eat, after we looked at the new menu. I still miss it and wish they'd change it back. :-(

The food was well prepared, well presented and the service was exceptional. I believe it fits anyones description for "Fine dining", and the meal I had was perfect. Keep in mind it is a little pricey, but I felt it was well worth the price.

After YEARS of reliable delicious meals... they changed it. From great to mediocre, from a great place to eat to a not so great (or comfortable) dive sports bar'ish type place. Not sure why the owners felt the need to change things ... they should have left perfection alone.
