Seafood | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

When we walked in I was concerned as the place is fairly large but almost empty. I thought maybe it was because the Academy Awards were on (which they had on several of their many TVs), but I have driven by on a couple of other occasions and it was also rather empty. The place is well decorated and has several different types of seating areas. The furniture is a plain and simple however. Ordering from the beer list, we didn't realize that most of these were in a can. Discovered afterwards that the beers on tap were listed on the wall deep inside the restaurant. Menu selections were somewhat limited, and pricing for many entrees matched pricing for sandwiches which didn't seem quite right. Also sides were offered more for simple dishes than the expensive ones, which didn't seem to match either. Much to my surprise after all of the above, the seafood and sides were all very good. We will likely return and spread the word. More

Steakhouse | San Gabriel Valley, Pasadena / San Gabriel

Wonderful dining place. The waitress is friendly and patiently answer all my wife's questions from foods to hair styles. We ordered seafood tower for two and Ameican Wagyu Tomahawk Ribeye. The lobster and oyster are fresh and tasty. The Ribeye serve in huge portion. That size just fit our table for 2. The taste... is above average, but love their services. I will recommend this restaurantto my friends for their future dinning plan. More

We live in San Francisco and visit Nick’s every time we head to SoCal to visit our adult kids. This was our 4th dinner at Nick’s; we have never been disappointed! On our most visit our server, Kelsey, provided exceptional service. Cocktails were fantastic and we all loved our meal! (salmon & fried chicken) More

Contemporary Italian | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

One thing I like about the restaurant is that they frequently update their menu. The last time I went there they had several unique dishes that I have not seen before. For example, I had a beet salad with a side garnish of a puree made from parsley and mint, and as a main dish, what they call Lamb T-Bone Steak, which had, as a side dish a pea sformato, a kind of pea custard, that was really good.

Discover Pasadena

Known as a mission city, San Gabriel is an artistic town where people love creativity and innovation. The food is a part of the entire scene with American fusion leading the way. Duck hash is made from duck confit, apricots, and chile jam and served at many of the American restaurants near the Cordova-style mission entrance. Mediterranean foods are a welcome addition to the area's diverse cuisine options with choices like spaghetti squash casserole with caramelized onions, organic tomatoes, zucchini and freshly made mozzarella cheese. Italian is another favorite, featured at fine dining establishments where you can get authentic handmade pasta and other provincial dishes.
