You deserve to eat luxurious meals and wine and dine at these four exciting destinations, our picks for the best restaurants in Pasadena, CA.


1. Mi Piace

Looking for a modern spin on your childhood favorites in Burbank? Mi Piace is one of the best Pasadena Italian restaurants around, and they now offer outdoor patio dining! Offering a New York spin on classic Italian fare, Mi Piace crafts rustic handmade dishes in a trendy setting for one unforgettable dining experience. Enjoy traditional favorites like Osso Bucco or try the Spaghetti Aragosta lobster tail for a gourmet treat.

2. Alexander’s Steakhouse

If you are looking for a unique takeout experience, Alexander’s Steakhouse is an excellent choice. The food at Alexander’s Steakhouse is a mix between an American steakhouse with traces of Japanese influence. Try the Miyazaki, japan a5 steak, or stick to an American style steak for your next order. Whether you book a patio reservation or take your food to-go, the experience will be enlightening.

3. Parkway Grill

The ultimate in fine-dining restaurants in Pasadena has to be the Parkway Grill. The Parkway Grill is known for its innovative regional American cuisine. Let your taste buds enjoy their Grilled Spring Lamb Lollipops or Braised Short Rib. No matter what dish you choose, your night will be filled with delicious food and drinks. Although outdoor seating is not available, Parkway Grill has limited reservations to parties of six or fewer to ensure a comfortable dining experience. With curbside pickup available, takeout is bound to be a preferred option for some, as well.

4. Maestro

If you want to dine al fresco with some of the best Mexican cuisine and cocktails in the area, Maestro is the ultimate Pasadena Mexican restaurant. Take your seat at the patio dining, and try traditional favorites like the fresh ceviche or chorizo quesadilla. Want to expand your palate? Bold dishes like the mole confit with queso fresco or seared scallops with epazote foam will thrill your tastebuds.

5. Houston’s

When you have a serious craving for American classics, there’s nothing like a trip to Houston’s.
