    The Risotto with Lobster was fantastic.The Black Label Burger was great as well as the crispy yet thick bacon and caramelized Maui onions were simply wonderful.

    Mediocre. I guess The residents of Pasadena must be happy to have it since options are limited but, I'm sorry, it's below mediocre.

    Their escargot was surprisingly good. For some reason their salmon pasta's portion got smaller, the sauce was less than before, and there were less smoke salmon on top.

    Pretty waitstaff, terrible service. Don't expect questions answered, followthrough with requests, or even getting the bill in decent time.

    Don't drink alcohol? Brian at the bar can make you flavorful virgin cocktails. Virgin mojito was delicious - complete with mint leaves - and not too sweet.

    I've been coming here for years and I seem the same thing over and over again. The insalata with vinegarette and pasta bolongnese. Two classics and always perfect. And amazing creative desserts.

    Do not eat at tables by back mirrored wall. Bugs! They know there is a problem and all they do is shrug shoulders and apologize. Ugh.

    Service is poor, waitresses are not attentive. Don't sit near the mirror - the floor is unstable and you feel everyone walking around. Bread is good though
