I was able to have dinner here while in town for a conference. Very good food - the cheesecake factory usually is! Kind and prompt service.

If I did not have a $75 gift card, I would not have come here! There are too many amazing restaurants in Old Town Pasadena to visit. My suggestion is to go someplace new and unique!More

First of all yes. Cheesecake. Sign me up! Secondly, what a lovely venue for a solo date. I enjoyed people watching next to the large windows and eating my Chicken Alfredo pasta. It was a wonderful evening.

There is a pay parking garage half a block northeast of the restaurant. There are a few free street parking spots a few blocks away by St. Andrews. on Chestnut. There is almost no room in the waiting area, and it can get super crowded....More
