When I moved to So Cal in '85 I got a job at The Parkway Grill. In a matter of a few short months I was the daytime bartender. This place was fun, innovative and the food was delicious. Decades later, I took my wife...More

I got a bad stomachache right after leaving. Something was not cleaned or handled properly in the kitchen. The duck tasted very gamey; the fish was tasteless. It was a very disappointing experience and an expensive one. I will not go there again.

I have never had an average meal at this restaurant. It is always delicious. The staff is friendly and very accommodating to special requests for allergies. It is always a pleasant experience to dine at this restaurant.

One of the top dining experiences in Pasadena. Food, Atmosphere and Service are superlative. This is an impressive place to take a date, a great choice for a business dinner - an absolute winner anytime. Top of the line dining experience.

Pricey but great quality, food nicely done, and portion size was also good. The variety of what you can order is decent. The ambiance was excellent, and the service was also perfect. Not hanging over us, but giving us space yet being attentive.

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

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.
