Nice staff, but just ok execution The staff were so driven to please that I really felt like a VIP. The menu was imaginative but also a bit pricey for the items offered. I ordered the lobster pasta which came with a big portion of lobster tail and green lip mussels on squid ink pasta. Unfortunately the lobster was somewhat... More

I Don't Get it...I was Really Expecting Something Delicious and Fabulous but it Seemed to Me Like a Glorified Diner Place is Nice and Our Waitress was Super Sweet and Attentive but... I Had Sand Dabs (Basically Flounder) for the First Time (Chosen because Nothing on the Menu Jumped Out at Me) and Crab Cakes... Crab Cakes were Mushy...Not Crispy... More

Sesame Grill does serve a fusion of California-Asian-Continental cuisine; and it does have a largely Asian clientele; however, its staff all are local and speak English well, including the owner/chef. I have been here a number of times and make certain that I stop here at least twice or more frequently when I am in Southern California several times a... More

We look forward to DineLA week every year to try out different restaurants, hoping to discover a gem. Most of the time we're disappointed. This one just fell flat. As we walked in we noted there were only 2 other dinners. Perhaps a tell-tale indicator. The server was friendly, spoke fairly good English which was nice since this appears to... More

My wife, friends, and I frequently eat at the Sesame Grill. The luncheon specials are fantastic and include a wife variety of sumptious offerings. The prices for the specials are very good. The food is a mix of Asian and European flavors. The vegetable soup is as good as it gets. An early bird special gives you the same luncheon... More

Sesame Grill is one of our very favorite restaurants!!! In fact, we just celebrated our birthdays there (my husband and I are one day apart) and it was top notch as usual. Angela, the owner, is always on hand to make sure that everything goes perfectly and the wait staff is superb--especially Chris. I adore the Chilean Sea Bass with... More

Say "Ah!" This place is a nice surprise. It's great, and here's why: in the middle of a small shopping complex is this unassuming storefront that looks like nothing much. But when you go inside, you find that it's modestly upscale. The interior has some interesting features, like their colored-glass ceiling sculpture, and the whole ambiance says, "We care, but...

The Sesame Grill has become the go to place anytime I travel to the Arcadia area. Menu has many offerings from steaks, to pasta to a very good selection of seafood and the food is always fresh. Prices are very reasonable and the service is always excellent.

Just spent 2 weeks in town on business. We ate here 4 times and each dinner was excellent. From the apps to the entrees to desert, not a complaint. And it's very reasonably priced whether U order from the prix fix menu or a la carte. Highly recommend!
