Since 1984, Parkway Grill has specialized in a seasonal, market-driven approach to cooking that incorporates diverse influences and classic French technique. Demonstrating the ultimate commitment to fresh produce, the Parkway Grill planted its own organic vegetable and herb garden behind the restaurant. Tiki Salad, Brick-Oven Baked Cambozola Pear Flat Bread, and Whole Ginger Fried Catfish are long-time favorites. The design of the Parkway Grill is a study in casual sophistication, striking a perfect balance between elegance and rustic approachability. The brick walls are adorned with elegant paintings by Millard Sheets and mixologists prepare hand-crafted cocktails at the expansive bar, an original from 1920's Chicago. Parkway's award-winning wine cellar, comprised of upwards of three thousand bottles, includes a broad selection of wines served by the glass.

My husband is a steak lover and he was not disappointed. We table was right next to a fire place which was welcomed on a cold night. Our waiter was also excellent. The mushroom steak topper was outstanding. We will certainly be back. I have purchased their gift cards too. Great gift idea.

I went here with my family the other night, and it was a very nice atmosphere, food was good, service was great. I ordered the duck, it was good but the black rice it came with was a little undercooked and a little too gingery. Overall we had a great family dinner here.

If you want fine dining, refined unrushed service with excellent food, this is your place. A great place to go to with a group of people, also. They just do it right. Yes, it is pricey, but it is a classy old style dinner house. We were with a large group of people and everything we had was excellent. The... More

What a great evening! The Parkway Grill was excellent and made for a lovely Christmas eve. Lindsay, our waitress, was personable, informative and just great in general. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and the carolers gave a festive addition. Our food was delicious; sea bass special and the lamb chops. Everything was cooked to perfection. Lindsay recommended the Brownie/Butterscotch trifle... More

Red brick walls, wood beams, huge flower bouquets, and small pictures on the walls give it an east coast feeling, helping to lessen the shock of LA for out of town visitors. Of course being in Pasadena helps tremendously to lessen that shock. It is about as far as you can get from the west side of LA. The live... More

We dine here infrequently and each time I go back I remember why. It is good but not great and because it is pretty expensive it needs to do better. The food is just average and it just does not have the extra something that makes for a special evening out. I would try the sister restaurant the chophouse instead.

It has a traditional feel and not too noisy. One of the few places where you can have a conversation without shouting. Food is consistently good.

Pasadena institution that almost everyone who lives here visits at least once. It's the kind of place you take the whole family or a group birthday. It's not that romantic, so don't come bringing your new fiance asking her or him to marry you. The food is great - if standard great. It's the kind of place that there used... More
