This place is usually on the spot. My wife likes well done meat, so we experience lots of problems. This place does a good job keeping a well done cook not burned. Service is usually good. A little pricey.

We have been having wonderful dinners at the Parkway Grill for many years. Unfortunately our past two meals there have been very much sub-par. First the good. As always, the restaurant is attractive with comfortable seating and lighting. By todays standards, it's a quiet restaurant. And as always, the service is excellent. The servers are knowledgeable, friendly and competent. Cocktails... More

I was hungry for a good steak dinner. I remember having a great dinner at Parkway Grill, so I went back. This place is perfect! Romantic setting, great lighting, a bit of Pasadena's arts and crafts, the music in the lounge is the right volume. I had a great Manhattan. My waiter was personable, friendly and gave me great suggestions... More

For dinner we had the short ribs, quail, and scallops. The short ribs and quail were excellent. The scallops were cooked perfectly but the... More

My fiend and I were both celebrating birthdays , we met at Parkway as it is just about equidistant from our homes (WLA and Upland). We arrived at 11.30 when they opened and were seated immediately. Our waiter brought us bread and water and left us to gossip, as requested, for a few minutes. I ordered the crabcake for my... More

It's pricey, but the service and food are superior. We went for my daughter's 21st birthday and could not have been more pleased. An evening we will always remember!

Since 1984, Parkway Grill has specialized in a seasonal, market-driven approach to cooking that incorporates diverse influences and classic French technique. Demonstrating the ultimate commitment to fresh produce, the Parkway Grill planted its own organic vegetable and herb garden behind the restaurant. Tiki Salad, Brick-Oven Baked Cambozola Pear Flat Bread, and Whole Ginger Fried Catfish are long-time favorites. The design of the Parkway Grill is a study in casual sophistication, striking a perfect balance between elegance and rustic approachability. The brick walls are adorned with elegant paintings by Millard Sheets and mixologists prepare hand-crafted cocktails at the expansive bar, an original from 1920's Chicago. Parkway's award-winning wine cellar, comprised of upwards of three thousand bottles, includes a broad selection of wines served by the glass.
