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.

My friends and I get together at the holidays and have lunch. We would rather spend time together than buy stuff. The Parkway Grill is always beautifully decorated for the holidays. The service as usual was impeccable. I had recently developed a severe allergy to clove and kitchen checked that my meal wouldn't kill me. A lovely time was had... More

Beautiful room and ambience...Christmas decorations still up and very lovely. Nice service. Food is just OK, expensive. We don't mind paying if the food is outstanding but this was disappointing. We'll probably go one more time and order differently. Maybe this is one of those places where you are paying for the atmosphere (which is very nice indeed.)

Though owned by the same people who own Arroyo Chop House, this restaurant falls a measure short. It's still very good, but the place isn't as beautiful, not as welcoming, and the steaks are not up top its sister high standards.

We met with friends for a quiet dinner at the Parkway Grill. The service and ambiance were excellent. It helped that the dining room was decorated for Christmas with many wreaths, Christmas lights and other festive decorations. The piano player in the background was very nice as well. We all enjoyed different dishes (3 of us had steaks and 1... 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.
