This unique restaurant housed in the former Santa Fe Railroad Station in Pasadena serves up a unique menu of american foods. They also have the best Key Lime Pie in the universe. The Bar scene is wonderful as well as indicated in a sign that reads "I WOULD RATHER EAT IN A BAR THAN DRINK IN A RESTAURANT" Valet parking... More

La Grande Orange has a wonderful bar area with numerous tables (Tall and Low) and a great bar counter to sit at. Excellent artisinal cocktails for $9 (if my memory serves me correctly) or $3 off cocktails, wine and beer from 4 - 7pm. Food was good especially the tacos but I am more a fan of the pizza in...

Went to La Grande after the Rose Bowl Flea Market, and boy did we enjoy it. We sat at the bar as to be seated there was a 10 minute wait list, by the time we left, there were people waiting outside. I had the eggs Benedict which were excellent. My daughter had the prime rib, and it was cooked... More

We recently dined here on a trip to LA. The food was good and the service was great. The food came out quickly and the waiter was very attentive. I ordered the key lime pie for dessert, but the star was the strawberry gelato that came with it. It was amazing!

Ate here on a Sunday at 1 pm. Half hour wait time for a table. No room at the bar to sit but was able to bring water outside while waiting. Huevos Rancheros are excellent. Wait staff is terrific and attentive.

So Le Grande Orange is on a level of its own. Hiding in the old trains station by the park and close to Del Mar Station. LGO has a Bar a Patio and of course it's main dining room. The staff is great and the food is superbly eclectic. Don't expect traditional fare at LGo. You're not gonna find it... More

Our evening started at the Marriott Burbank then off to the Hollywood sign just for the heck of it. Wandered around the observatory for a while and then search for food. La Grande Orange Cafe listed as best in the area on Trip Advisor so off we headed. Arrived and seated right away, ordered drinks, appetizers and food. Food came... More

Took a drive out to Pasadena on a recent trip to LA. Found this place on TA so thought I would give it a try. The minute I walked in I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. They have an excellent happy hour from 11-7. Tried the 'Easy Money' cocktail which was spot on.... More

We enjoy this Pasadena restaurant for its friendly atmosphere and bright cuisine. Traditional California Cuisine with a couple of twists (deviled eggs). The bar is large and well-lit and it's right next to the LA Metro station from Union Station downtown. We love the food here though it's not fine dining it's very good.
