This establishment was smaller than I expected. My friend and I sat at the bar. Really liked the bar area (there were also some tables)! Enjoyable jazzy music in background. We wanted to watch one of the bowl playoff games. There was one small tv, which we were perfectly situated to see, at the end of the bar. Not a... More

This is the top rated restaurant which was confirmed when we visited during the Rose Bowl weekend. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Plus the service from Christine and Dejuan was dynamite. They made use feel like we were valued guests. I had the rotisserie chicken which was the best. I usually drown my chicken in ketchup or hot... More

We had lunch here in November and everything was wonderful so we decided to check out Happy Hour for dinner. To our surprise Monday and Tuesday evenings from 3:30 - 6:30 there are specials on drinks and wine which were welcomed. The surprise was the "Local" promotion of 1/2 off dinner entrees for one when dining as a couple. This... More

We went here with a tour group of about 12 people. They have a nice space for private parties. The patio seating was nice regardless of the weather since they have heaters. The food was good and staff were very attentive.

The Otis Bar here is fantastic. Great drinks, service and atmosphere. So convenient for the train. I love the filet tacos. They aren't cheap but they are yummy! Restrooms need a little more love.

We live in Pasadena and this spot is on our regular rotation. We are a family of 6 and there are options for everyone. We all live the deviled eggs, with bacon of course. Must try them with a dash of their Texas Pete's hot sauce. A couple of our kids just love the French dip sandwich. Other enjoy the... More

This is a good restaurant to visit. It is located in the main Train Station in Pasadena, adjacent to Old Pasadena. The menu is creative and unique. The food excellent. The ambiance is energetic.

I've always wanted to try this restaurant, but thought maybe it was a little too uppity for me. We went for lunch on a Monday afternoon and the place was packed with diners, both inside and in the patio. The hostess greeted us in a friendly and enthusiastic manner making us feel very welcomed. We chose to sit in the... More

Came here on a business trip w some colleagues, AWESOME place. Sat in the bar area, had great green chilie cheeseburger, loved it. Coming from the east coast, the chips/salsa/guacamole alone were worth the trip. Definitely stop by if you're in the area!

Stopped in for dinner with a workmate. There are a variety of items, from deviled eggs to Brussels sprout salad on the appetizers. There are several varieties of tacos with homemade corn tortillas - excellent! They fill up quickly for dinner FYI.
