    Food was exceptional, service was perfect and not rushed or interruptive. Drinks were just right. The Manager graced us with a splendid dessert spread as payback for a problem experienced during an earlier visit. Quite unexpected but very much appreciated.

    We had the chicken and the sea bass. We especially liked the chicken; tender, not dry, with very good flavor. Great ambience and our server did a great job. The Arbour is a place had driven by many times, but not paid attention too. Our loss; will definitely be returning. Great restaurant.

    Great Pasadena Spot for dinner. Lovely open Bar Restaurant atmosphere. The food is excellent. Tried not to eat the fresh baked roll they gave us at the beginning of the meal. Just the right amount of fresh chewiness to NOT be able to resist. The sea bass is great and on the lighter side. Their caesar salad is special as it has almond slivers in it which sounds weird but gives it a unique and nutty flavor. It was excellent. Love this place and will be going back.

    We appreciated the friendly/smiling service from the waiter, however the miniscule potato croquettes for the shared first course could have been a bit larger. Also, for glasses by the wine, consider offering more than one choice of Pinot Noir.

    Service was exceptional I do have to say. We requested to sit outside presuming they had a patio at the restaurant. Unfortunately the outside was the sidewalk in the front of the restaurant. The experience would have been much better if the ambulance and police weren’t driving by numerous times. Sitting inside is the best option. The potato bites for the appetizer was amazing. The steak was amazing. The sea bass was also amazing but the yellowfin tuna was not good at all. I was also expecting some Perrier water or something equivalent when I was asked if we wanted some sparkling water and it was just water in a glass. I will give it another chance for sure only because I didn’t know what to expect and sitting outside was a bad experience

    We reserved outdoor seating and discovered when we got there it was non the sidewalk/ not what I expected. Noise and activity on the street was high. There were no tables available to move inside. Service was slow to start - food was good. Dinning inside might have been a different experience.

    The Mediterranean Seabass was very good. However a little skimpy on the bok choy. The Apple Strudel was excellent. A little pricy on the Cosmo drink. Overall the waiter was excellent and ambiance of the restaurant was fantastic.

    It was great overall. Great food, good ambiance, food came out in timely manner. Only thing was felt kinda rushed to get up n go by staff. 3/4 different waiters, bus boy came to our table towards the end.. they weren’t going to seat anyone else after 8;45 on a Sunday and it wasn’t crowded either.. I’d go bk, we took our time

    we had outdoor dining along Lake and decided to simply order several appetizers. I had the corn soup, beet salad and chili. My spouse had corn soup, apple/ wild arugula salad with pecans, tagliatelle with sausage. the tagliatelle was little spicer than before but a delightful evening on Lake Street and we had a good service from server to bus boys.

    I had a craving for spaghetti once I saw the Bucatini spaghetti, alla vodka sauce, ground pancetta, tomato cream, parmesan cheese on the menu. The noodles were very interesting. A little thicker that the usual spaghetti but the sauce we absolutely delicious! This with the Apple salad, wild arugula, frisee, bacon, pecans, pink lady apples, champagne vinaigrette to start made a fabulously delicious meal. I also like the ambiance. The bar served a great IPA.

    Although we've dined at The Arbour many times, this evening reminded us once again why we love this place! From start to finish, the food, hospitality, and ambiance were top notch. The Arbour just feels like home, and its well worth the long drive from Orange County. The atmosphere is elegant and upscale, with white linen tablecloths. At the same time, the staff make everyone feel welcome and comfortable. The food is well sourced and delicious. We were blown away by the salmon tartare inside crispy spring rolls. The special littleneck clams in a white wine sauce with perfectly al dente gnocchi were also a hit. The ballottine of squab was delicate, yet full of flavor - reminding us of Thanksgiving in June! Dessert is always great and not to be missed. The Arbour is a real gem in Pasadena and I cant wait to return.

    I've been to The Arbour a few times and had never been disappointed. We decided to take our next-door neighbor out for dinner at The Arbour. Everything went well for the first 5 minutes. Our waiter was very personable, however he mentioned that he had a table of 12 to care for...hence the problem. Once he started caring for the table of 12, we lost him. I finally had to flag down the lady who was filling our water glass to get a few items we needed to complete our meal, like forks and cheese for our pasta. The food was really good but left a bad taste in my mouth because of our waiter. When I asked the 'water lady' for our check, boom Thomas was 'johnny on the spot' and as pleasant as he was in the beginning. Thanks to our 'water lady', the evening turned out good!
