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.

A colleague and I had dinner at the grill and the description that comes to mind is calm elegance. The atmosphere is classy but not stuffy or elitist. The service is gracious and friendly. It was totally relaxing. It was private enough to have a serious conversation but public enough to feel you were part of a vibrant energy. The... More

decent place, love the decor and the ambiance but the steaks were just average, if not below average. Not worth the price and certainly shouldn't be #2 restaurant in pasadena. That's very very very inaccurate.

My friends and I went here for a special lunch after visiting the Norton Simon Museum. The dining room is beautiful with a quiet elegance. Beautiful flower arrangements abound. The menu has a lot of variety and as usual we ordered a lot of small plates and shared. The food was very good. They have nice wine selections. I have... More

Went for lunch to celebrate a friends birthday. They offer a delicious bread basket with an assortment of breads/crackers. We ordered the ahi tartare appetizer and caesar salad. The salad was served with fresh anchovies with an excellent dressing. Entrée was the whole fried catfish and it was cooked to perfection. The service is consistently excellent, everyone we encountered was... More

The tiger shrimp corndogs were delicious as were the crab cakes and tuna tartare.. I had the scallops and they awesome with a great flavor and enhancements. The bananas foster was a perfect ending!

The menu range is impressive but even more so is that it is all good. Our party of 4 varied from pizza, meat, fish and salads and topped off by killer desserts. Always well served can not wait to go back.

We got engaged here in 1990. It still ranks very high as a classy gourmet restaurant in Pasadena. The menu impresses everyone and the fresh ingredient and herb garden on the property will certainly dazzle you. We enjoy the live music and upbeat cocktail hour. The fireplace is usually crackling in winter and the staff reflects a positive energy. Can't... More

Five of us ladies celebrated a birthday after an afternoon at the Pasadena Showcase House of Design. We had made 5:30 dinner reservations since we'd be driving one hour to get back home.
