I visited this restaurant for a business lunch, it was busy and lively, but they were able to accommodate our party of 7. Service was prompt, helpful and efficient. Food was tasty. I would definitely like to visit this restaurant again.

Great food. Excellent margaritas. They don't take reservations, so get her early -- or late. The make-it-yourself taco with short rib meat is very good.

We enjoy sitting out on the patio and are willing to wait to get a table. The casual atmosphere is always pleasant and much quieter and less crowded than seating indoors. The restaurant is located in the historical train station building which adds to the ambience. The menu has a nice variety to choose from and it is the perfect... More

This is the place to enjoy a wonderful meal in a historical train station building! The restaurant is just beautiful! All in the menu is good and great quality! I really enjoy my end cut prime rib. They have a great selection in the menu! Happy hour is also a good choice for a casual drink with a friend. MD

La Grande Orange is likely one of my all time favorite spots. They don't take reservations except for parties of 10 or more with a deposit, so keep that in mind. You will likely valet or park underground in the train station parking lot. They own the adjoining building as well; The Luggage Room Pizza, also a WINNER. La Grande... More

LGO, as they call it, is a great option for groups and families. There always seems to be large groups in the loud, bustling dining room, or outside in the nice patio with the rotisserie fire on one side. This isn't the most intimate place, but it's one of the better options for larger families and groups in the Pasadena... More

I went to La Grande Orange with a group of about 10 people for a Happy Hour. I had driven by many times but never gone there. The appetizers were great / the entrees were great. I'm an iced tea guy, but everybody else liked their drinks. They seem to have something to please everyone - even vegan - which... More

We had lunch here about a week and a half ago with my friend who lives in Pasadena. We took my daughters who are 11 and 7. The kids menu is on a little chalk board that they bring to the table. The deviled egg appetizer is yummy and the salmon tacos were delicious- and huge! If you want to... More
