This place has a metro gold line stop around the corner, as you can expect it gets very busy especially Friday nights. Sometimes there is a wait to get a table for sit down dining, however bar area has some high top tables, come early to grab a spot. Bar counter area has limited seats. Food great, drinks even better.... More

My husband and I were returning to Santa Barbara from Big Bear Lake, California, on the afternoon of MLK Day. We wanted to take a break for lunch and had read very good reviews for La Grande Orange Cafe in Pasadena. When we arrived at 1:30 pm, the restaurant was packed. As we still had the drive to Santa Barbara... More

Took at late lunch on trip advisor recmn (#1). Sat on the sunny patio. Lovely ambience and gorgeously relaxing. My wife and i took the tuna burger and kale salad. We were vv happy with our dining experience. We thought it good value but we were used to Hollywood prices. Thanks to the Orange Cafe.

We have been to La Grande Orange several times and have always found the food very good and well prepared, no matter what we have ordered. The bar food is also good! We have had breakfast (Sunday a little crowded), lunch and dinner with no complaints. We especially like stopping in after a trip to downtown Los Angeles or arriving... More

This establishment was smaller than I expected. My friend and I sat at the bar. Really liked the bar area (there were also some tables)! Enjoyable jazzy music in background. We wanted to watch one of the bowl playoff games. There was one small tv, which we were perfectly situated to see, at the end of the bar. Not a... More

This is the top rated restaurant which was confirmed when we visited during the Rose Bowl weekend. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Plus the service from Christine and Dejuan was dynamite. They made use feel like we were valued guests. I had the rotisserie chicken which was the best. I usually drown my chicken in ketchup or hot... More

We had lunch here in November and everything was wonderful so we decided to check out Happy Hour for dinner. To our surprise Monday and Tuesday evenings from 3:30 - 6:30 there are specials on drinks and wine which were welcomed. The surprise was the "Local" promotion of 1/2 off dinner entrees for one when dining as a couple. This... More

We went here with a tour group of about 12 people. They have a nice space for private parties. The patio seating was nice regardless of the weather since they have heaters. The food was good and staff were very attentive.

The Otis Bar here is fantastic. Great drinks, service and atmosphere. So convenient for the train. I love the filet tacos. They aren't cheap but they are yummy! Restrooms need a little more love.
