I have been visiting Parkway Grill for over 20 years. The bar area is setup uniquely that it almost feel like an intimate hotel lobby with live piano playing most of the night. It is such a classy place that solo woman who wants to enjoy a quiet night ALONE at a bar with live piano and immerse oneself in... More

Celebrating a birthday, we looked forward to some good gluten free options....yea not really. Maybe one dessert and entrees had to have items swapped out. The steak was drowned in sauce, my friends fried catfish was a whole giant fish! Service was terrific. I couldn't hold any conversation because it is super loud with the bustle of a very busy...

Located off the Arroyo Parkway, the Parkway Grill is one of my family's favorites. Offering high quality meats, seafood, and salads, this restaurant serves nothing but the best. Valet parking is always available. Have been dining in this since 1983.

We ordered the Catfish (which was huge) and Duck Breast which are great choices and of good value (considering the price). This is a great experience and i recommend this restaurant.

This is a fairly old-fashioned restaurant. Food was good but not exceptional and service was fine. But it is extremely expensive and we did not feel it was worth it. We chose it because it is near the Huntington Gardens.

A Pasadena local had recommended Parkway Grill and we dined there for the first time last night. We met some dear friends and it was their company, more than anything, that made the evening special. We were greeted warmly and enjoyed our drinks in the bar/lounge area before dinner. Our server in the lounge was congenial. The restaurant is beautiful... 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.
