I tried this place for the first time today for a nice Friday lunch. I understand they only recently started serving lunch so they weren't crowded, but from my experience they should be! I suspect the decor of the restaurant was designed with evenings in mind, but it was still quite congenial with the sunlight streaming in the tall windows down one side of the room. The service was perfect--attentive and very friendly without being obtrusive. I was dining alone with a book and have sometimes found in that case that I will be either abandoned or rushed, but the waitress had just the right balance of timing. The wine she recommended went very well with my food, but the main reason I'll be back was the food itself. I had a goat cheese and pear salad, the lobster club sandwich, and an apple galette. It was all delicious, especially the lobster sandwich, which isn't on their dinner menu. The prices were comparable to the other ""fancy lunch"" places I've tried in Old Pasadena, but the food was significantly tastier and more interesting. I intend to try them for dinner in the future, but I definitely suggest trying them for lunch.
Pros: Great service, very tasty food, attractive space, portions good for trying several things
Cons: No outdoor seating, portions not for huge eaters
