Steakhouse | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

Amazing experience! Great steaks and sides only excelled by the staff... Chef Dominique was engaging as he personally set up our table location and visited us throughout the meal. We caught them on a rainy and not so busy week night.. so I'm sure we got extra special attention for our combined business and celebratory dinner. Our guests were seasoned food aficionados whom, at the end of the evening both said, literally, "that was some of the best food we have ever had!" We were blown away! Great time... will return soon. (Loved the "no corkage Tuesday" special too!) More

A friend and I went for DineLA and loved it. The quiet atmosphere, excellent food, and service are reasons for me to go back. For appetizers, we had shiitake tempura stuffed with shrimp mousse and salmon tartar tacos. I wasn't expecting the shiitake tempura to be as pillowy and luscious as it was. Amazing. The fish tacos were the most sophisticated I've ever had. The taco shells were incredibly thin and crispy, the salmon tartar, subtle and delicious The tacos were served on a lightly dressed salad. Pan-roasted shrimp in champagne sauce were delicate and perfectly cooked. The pork in loin in peppercorn sauce was thinly sliced and sooo flavorful. The peppercorns gave the sauce a bite, but was not overly peppery. Both entrees came with sasagaki sliced carrots (Japanese cutting technique), tiny brussels sprouts, and divine, thinly sliced, creamy potatoes. I wanted to eat a bowl of those potatoes, except that they're so rich. The apple tart and ice cream with caramel sauce was good. The chocolate souffle tart with a scoop of coffee ice cream was more compelling, to me. The staff was on point. 6 different people seated, waited, ran dishes, cleared, refilled, but they were never too much. I'd recommend this restaurant for a special dinner. More

Known as a mission city, San Gabriel is an artistic town where people love creativity and innovation. The food is a part of the entire scene with American fusion leading the way. Duck hash is made from duck confit, apricots, and chile jam and served at many of the American restaurants near the Cordova-style mission entrance. Mediterranean foods are a welcome addition to the area's diverse cuisine options with choices like spaghetti squash casserole with caramelized onions, organic tomatoes, zucchini and freshly made mozzarella cheese. Italian is another favorite, featured at fine dining establishments where you can get authentic handmade pasta and other provincial dishes.
