Great bar , great food, great service. Kid friendly.The bar tender made a vodka drink for us that had no sugar in it. Great for a date night or a family night.

Being from Canada this is a great place to eat a taco. You get all the fixings and to top it off it comes with warm soft taco shells. Go and try it.

If you're hungry and riding the metro in pasadena this is close since it's at a metro stop. However, I would choose other options in Pasadena for breakfast/brunch. Food was average compared to other restaurants I consider better. Choose another if you have time.

Adjacent to the Del Mar Metro Train Station, the location is good for inbound or outbound travelers. The food is healthy, with a touch of vegan all the way through heavy red beef. The salads are stand alone great. The menu radiates nutrition. The wait staff is impressive...fit, well groomed, attractive, attentive, intelligent. Pricey but classy.

We were a couple from out of town looking for a place with delicious food, but not too fancy (or pricey). We struck gold! On the early side of 6 pm we were seated right away. Despite guests of all ages, including several babies, the noise never got beyond a cheerful level, so we could hold a nice conversation. Our... More

We had never been here, found via trip advisor. It was a beautiful place, great food and nice atmosphere to reconnect with family. Chilaquiles was excellent! We will be back!

Service was outstanding - our waiter couldn't do enough for us (all ten of us)! I had the swordfish tacos and they were amazing!!! I could literally become addicted to this! Everyone enjoyed their meal - the wine was good too! Ladies room was big and clean! Perfect dining experience! Loved walking around the neighborhood window-shopping after dinner. Beautiful area....

We had the famous roasted chicken, a wonderful salmon dish (great sauce), and some fried Branzino fish. Everything was excellent, but frying fish means it'll taste like any other fish, so the wonderful Branzino could well have been cod, or another whitefish, and no one would know. Still, the food was great, and the service was pretty fast, and quite... More

The bad news is that we always get the same thing ... the Del Mar Salad and either a Mimosa or iced tea ... and the good news is that it is always delicious. This is a busy, noisy restaurant with seating in the bar, the main room and the covered patio. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is... More
