Exquisitely enchanting experience within an historic setting along tree-lined streets, this European-inspired restaurant offers welcoming service and delicious dining within elegant, but not stuffy, surroundings. Floral arrangements and music delight, with seating on the garden front patio or within the intimate, elegant, wood-paneled library room adorned with frescoed ceiling. Enjoy a white peach Mimosa or Sangria with your signature Rosemary & Currant Bread house specialty. Finish with a decadent dessert. As you will not want to return to reality by departing, wander into the attached Gourmet Market & Gift Shop to complete this truly enjoyable experience. I am anxious to revisit this lovely family-owned venue.

Almost everything in their menu "can be shared". Barbecue chicken salad is a good starter followed by their burgers and pasta. Would not really recommend the kids menu, but would recommend that you order pasta to share with 2 small kids. Their steaks, fish tacos and burrito- a must try. Cheesecakes - whatever flavor you choose = excellent!!! But it's always best that it's for sharing than eating one whole for yourself. Personally- I think they have better food than Fridays, CPK, Italianis... They are normally full of customers. So better arrive earlier... or later than the normal eating time.

Meet with a group friends for dinner. The food was good. I had the baby back ribs. I found them to be tender and the sauce was pretty good. My wife had the smoked chicken and she said that it was just okay. I tried a little bit of hers and it needed a little more taste to it. Maybe a little more sauce. The fun part is it's one of those places that you throw your peanut shells on the floor and at each other. The were spot on with their service. I would venture to go back to eat here.

Wasn’t sure about a chain place for a steak but the seared rib was cooked perfectly and the sides were great also. Table payment machine is the future, avoiding waiting for a server. Great place for steak, beer and sport.

Wow! What a change from a couple decades ago!!! Back then the food was much better and service too. We dined mid week. The place was practically empty, which should have been a red flag for us. The filet and crab legs for $57 was a HUGE disappointment. We asked about the size of the crab legs and server said one and a half, so we thought that seemed good. I've never seen a King crab leg that small or thin. The filet was ok, not great, but the price was really high for the quality. The combination platters were not good either; the shrimp and scallops were small and dry. Overall, in our opinion, the place has gone downhill SO much that we won't return.

The food was delicious. I ordered fried chicken one night that was the best I've ever eaten, great flavor and a good crunch. Tuna sandwich was good too. I also had a crispy chicken salad one night. This restaurant is the room service vendor for the Hilton Garden Inn in Arcadia. They bring it right to your door on a big tray. They have cute tiny bottles of condiments too!

Located right in Santa Anita Erstfield Center, yet not busy at all on a Saturday during the busy shopping week before Christmas. Reason? Presentation is not bad, but food is sub par. Tri-tip, soup, and salad, are all tasteless.

Reviewed By IamJak

It's hard to find real American food in Los Angeles. Here you can have some traditional meat pies. They are not the best I've ever had but they aren't bad on any accounts. My Asian friends don't like this style of food, but everyone else seems to. It's not the healthiest but it's a good treat every once in a while.

The pastrami's here are so good. They put enough meat on the sandwich which could be enough for two sandwiches. They give you a lot of food for your money. The chili cheese fries are so good, but you better be hungry! They are served in a box. When you order regular fries, they come in a bag and there are way too many, unless that is all you are eating. We always think we will try something else, but always end up with their pastramis.

The Derby

Reviewed By IrishRick

The Derby never disappoints! Our party of 4 was seated immediately (with reservations) on an early Saturday evening. Our waiter, Jim, was fantastic. One of the best we've had there. Food, as always, was prepared properly, served at the appropriate temperature and very tasty. We all had some form of steak and they were cooked perfectly. Sides are generous and dinners come with vegetable & choice of potato or rice. One of the couples was celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and Jim brought out a Baked Alaska for dessert. He was always on the spot, without being intrusive. Will definitely ask for him in the future.
