Limited selection but interesting food, and tasty.

I stumbled upon this restaurant while in town. They have a price fixe menu that is reasonable, and the meal I chose was well executed. I had a crabcake it was really nicely done along with King Salmon and crème brûlée, all for $26. The presentation was very nice.

Once I saw the menu and listened to the waitress describe the offerings, I was immediately struck with the thought "Why is this place in a strip mall?" Everything we ordered was perfectly prepared and nicely presented. The prix fixe menu at $28 was plenty of food, and there were lots of other options up and down the menu if... More

We recently had some business customers visiting us. Since we work in Arcadia of California, our boss took us to a French fusion restaurant in a nearby shopping center. Among the crowded shops, the outside look of Sesame Grill did not stand out as superb. But, as soon as we entered into the restaurant, some colorful decorations on the ceiling... More

My wife and I came for a late dinner Had the barrata salad and pasta dishes. The linguini and clams were fantastic. Clams were so fresh and tender. My wife had a pasta dish with shrimp and salmon. Fantastic. Service great and attentive. Will be back next week. Steven Tyre CPA

The customer service was very good. The waitress suggested the fruit tea and that was very delicious. We are vegetarians so they suggested a pasta. The pasta dish was very average but I heard one of the diners say that the salmon was very delicious.

I had dinner here three years ago when I was working in Arcadia and loved it. I'm back in the area and decided to try it again. It's every bit as wonderful as I remembered. I enjoyed the fresh bread and butter, crab cake appetizer, beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and amazing petite vegetables. For dessert I had vanilla flan.... More

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
