From the pleasant valet, that you only tip, no parking fee, to the stunning floral display as you enter, prepare yourself for a superlative dining experience whether lunch or dinner. Have been privileged for both.

From the moment you walk into the bar area of this restaurant, you know you are in some place special. From the traditional dark wood surfaces with understated lighting to the elegantly set tables, this restaurant lets you know that you are in for a treat. Four of us dined there, two of us for the first time, and every... More

So the night before we had a substandard meal at Il Fornaio. Then we found this lovely place. For just $40 more for the two of us we had the most delicious dinner - short ribs for my partner and wild salmon with risotto for me. Wine dessert and coffee as well. The ambiance was great and the service and... More

Have been to the Parkway Grill over the years for business and family meals. What is truly amazing is the consistent quality and service over time. While many other restaurants are reducing portion sizes, cutting back on staff, minimizing training and the like, the Parkway Grill seems to have been able to retain their focus. Recognition of their wonderful food... More

This is our go-to dinner spot....always perfect. The food is excellent....let's go now! I always have the lamb, my husband loves the white fish and champagne and oysters is a wonderful starter.

The place was cozy and accommodating. There's a valet for you, the dishes are big so 2 people can share or have different dishes so you can sample different types of meat. I got the meaty fish (similar to halibut), yummy sauce, there was steak as well and we love the dessert.

Last Christmas we has the famous Christmas Brunch here. Absolutely top notch food and wonderful service. Very nice atmosphere and everybody from Busboy to Hostess to Server was so accommodating and helpful. Service with a smile and a wide menu with everything from Hamburger to the finest steaks, you just have to try this restaurant.

Three of us went to the Parkway Grill on a Sunday. The place was packed, and I am happy that I made reservations. The waitress was prompt and helpful. The food was good and plentiful. My wife had the fried catfish --- an entire fish. I had Thai pasta which was very good and surprisingly spicy. My daughter had the... More

The Parkway Grill is one of the most elegant restaurants in the Rose City of Pasadena. It does not shout good taste ... it embodies it. Expensive ... but what F. Scott Fitzgerald would have called "Expensive Simplicity". Bring your money, your built-in best manners, and your love of quiet, calm, an elegant ambiance, and excellently prepared cuisine. Then leave... More

Parkway Grill was the perfect place for my sister and I to have lunch and discuss some delicate family matters. The atmosphere is quietly elegant and the food is upscale. The wait staff is always very welcoming and unobtrusive.

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.
