Nice decor, cool setting. Food was pretty average, service was inattentive and pretty bad. Wife ordered a seFood salad and they were skimpy on the seafood. I ordered tacos and they forgot to bring out tortillas until much later. Daughters grilled cheese wasn't fully melted. Hard to track down our waitress, she was too busy folding napkins to look up.

We arrived at this restaurant, intending to eat and then head out to the airport from the Metro stop next door. When we were told there was a long wait, we almost left, but then the manager was able to find us a small table right away. The server came immediately, and was already aware we were on a short...

When I walked in the place was quite busy and had a very classy ambiance which were both good things. As I wanted a light & healthy lunch I went for the... More

My husband and I always enjoy the GCO. My favorite is their Ceasar salad. The kale salad is also yummy. Veggie burger is awesome.

Great variety-something for everyone's food choice- pleasing the young -trendy or senior palette...clean/healthy or not so much, great happy hours, yummy salads and pizza in the "the luggage room" certain night specials, & Otis Bar all have things unique to them.....be sure to try the complimentary milk chocolate chip cookies sprinkled with sea salt!

The short rib tacos are my absolute favorite, but the ahi tacos and burgers, or anything else on the menu is wonderful! Their sangria is a must have with any meal. Their kale salad is simply the best. There is also a full bar with cool artwork!

LGO is housed in an old Santa Fe railway depot, and is adjacent the the Del Mar Gold Line station in Pasadena. The bar is my favorite, with the view of the trains going by out of the large windows. The bar features a great wine list and some tasty appetizers, including their famous deviled eggs. The hand mixed cocktails... More
