Located off the Arroyo Parkway, the Parkway Grill is one of my family's favorites. Offering high quality meats, seafood, and salads, this restaurant serves nothing but the best. Valet parking is always available. Have been dining in this since 1983.

I went with family and the place was packed, the area was cozy and the wait staff and manager was very helpful and attentive. We ordered the Catfish (which was huge) and Duck Breast which are great choices and of good value (considering the price). This is a great experience and i recommend this restaurant.

This is a fairly old-fashioned restaurant. Food was good but not exceptional and service was fine. But it is extremely expensive and we did not feel it was worth it. We chose it because it is near the Huntington Gardens.

A Pasadena local had recommended Parkway Grill and we dined there for the first time last night. We met some dear friends and it was their company, more than anything, that made the evening special. We were greeted warmly and enjoyed our drinks in the bar/lounge area before dinner. Our server in the lounge was congenial. The restaurant is beautiful... More

Charming in every way. We were 2 friends on our customary weekend dinner date trying another New for us restaurant. From the moment we entered this lively place we were charmed. The ambiance is warm, inviting, the main room a throwback to a time when restaurants wanted their customers to feel at home. We certainly did. The service was excellent,... More

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.

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

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.
