The Terrace at The Langham, Pasadena

Californian | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

This is a lovely location for a business lunch, a special lunch, or any lunch at all, really. The ambiance is classic and casual. It is perfect and the food was divine. The only issue we had was that this is, indeed, a hotel, and the hotel's pool is next to the restaurant, so you get the usual kids yelling. Not a big deal. There was a couple with a baby - who allowed the baby to scream - which wasn't so great, but overall, we enjoyed it very much. Highly recommended, sans baby screaming. More

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.
