We had their long and narrow private room for 17, glass window doors looking out to other tables, worked beautifully for adults and the children, something for everybody on their menu. As it was, we each had something different, very varied and organic menu, the...More

Not many places open for lunch on Dec 26, Parkway Grill came to rescue. Definitely more of an Old World charm with a comfortable lunge/bar and laid back dinning area. Menu includes both classics and dishes with a California twist, nice food with excellent service...More

Excellent food but the service was terrible. Drinks came late with a feeble apology about the bar being "just backed up"; water glasses not filled even when requested; tea for one guest served 15 minutes before the COLD coffee for another. The plate of one...More

We ate here twice over a year ago, and after sampling several restaurants in Pasadena we decided back then that this was the only one good enough to go back to. We have now been in Pasadena for several months and have tried many more...More

Overall this is a reasonable place. We had good drinks. Nice cafe negroni. Great bone marrow. But definitely stay away from the short rib course. Even the same dish from a cafeteria can easily beat it. Either improve it big time or take it off...More

We met up with friends who we had met on a long trip. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive so we could relive our trip and dine at a comfortable pace. The filet pasta pappardelle was tasty, the scallops were a bit overdone.

Had lunch here on a recent business trip. The menu is unimaginative and expected. Service was very good though. I had a scallop salad that was just a gigantic pile of spinach with some scallops around the edge. The presentation was not thoughtful and the...More

Hi Jan, We do have some vegetarian options like salad, pasta, and pizza. We are also more than happy to accommodate any special requests as well. Many of our dishes can be prepared without the meat. For example, our Blue... 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.
