Our second time this last weekwnd was fabulous . Had dinner last year and it was pleasant. I really like how the portions are big and you get your monies worth . All the entrees are delicious . Sometimes you go to expensive restaurants and you get so little for the amount you pay for . The side dishes are plenty and one dessert shared by 3 was enough ..
We were totally satisfied and we were in a food coma .

The steak was perfect. I asked for rare and it was cooked exactly right. Highest quality meat. Just delicious, as were the sides. The service was generally quite good. The weak link was our waiter. He was nice but in the beginning he interrupted us regularly (we were having am important conversation) and then towards the end of the meal he disappeared. The second waiter or bus person was wonderful and attentive.

The best steak I've ever had!!! And every one of the servers was so attentive and friendly. When they found out it was our anniversary, they gave us an anniversary card and a special dessert. Can't wait to go back.

My spouse and I chose one each of the premium stake offerings to do an impromptu taste comparison (The Brant Farms won). All of the food was superb. Our waiter was wonderful, informative, and of good humor. The Manager (Simon) was equally courteous, informative, and professional.

Victoria was amazing and kind and setup the experience perfect from the start. Food was excellent and best crab cake I have ever had.

I was traveling by myself and small kind things of finding the right table makes an experience and Victoria’s focus and compassion plus the best food I have had in this area made it great.

I absolutely loved this place. We had the Australian wagyu ribeye and the Californian bone in ribeye are one of those and all of the food was a decent however the wagyu completely overshadowed the other stake. We had the Mac and cheese, potatoes and the truffle fries. The potatoes were below average but everything else was great. Service was AMAZING!!! Drinks were good. And absolutely recommend this place.

For the price, Royce is really not meeting other high-end restaurants value-added services and food quality. Really should not have to pay for a potato when you order a $75 to @100 steak. Wine sections are very nice, but prices are way out of line.

Had dinner with my Pasadena based adult son, and we were impressed with the superb food. Our server, Charles was kind, patient and knowledgeable about each element of our order, and also the choice of wine. The dining room is elegant, and the table linens, immaculate.

Treat yourself for a special occasion to The Royce.

PS> I had the John Dory fish, and it was perfect, although The Royce is billed as a steakhouse.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday, and it was excellent from start to finish. We were greeted by the friendliest host. We were seated with a view. Our server Mike was gracious and friendly. We started off with awesome cocktails. The sommelier helped us choose the most excellent bottle of red wine to pair with our meal. Our dessert was delicious as well! We left the Royce with full bellies, content, and happy. Thank you!

All was terrific. My only complaint is that there needs to be an additional Chardonnay by the glass less than $23.

We were set in the cellar room with great ambience and privacy.
I had been to Royce many times before and thought the steak were average. This time the food is excellent: steak meat quality and taste are exceptional.
I would avoid the baked oyster and the bone marrow though. Both have no substance : the oysters were pea size and there were no bone marrow at all under the seasoning. The tomahawk and the ribeye were both exceptional.

We had a birthday dinner there with 4 people. The menu was great and the food was very good. There were two disappointments.

First the chairs were very uncomfortable and I think they know it, because they offered pillows immediately to solve some of the problem.

Second, the wine list was very special, but extremely overpriced. I ordered both a bottle of white and red from the bottom third of the list and it totaled $425! Wow! Both were excellent. There were only a few options under $100 and the average price was probably $300+.

First class service in a beautiful setting. The food was excellent and the tables were separated so noise level was moderate. The wine list is excellent.

Mixing food with value. Good food. Table had no linen no placemats no flower no candle. Ate on hard surface. Dark clothing got white lap napkins. Had to ask for dark napkins
Steaks came plopped on plate, nothing else. Potatoes came overflowing in ramekin hard to serve spilled on table. Creamed spinach too salty to eat. Bread basket was good. Service was good but nothing great. Seemed hurried. O we would not go back. Many exceptional places to eat for the $$$$

The service here is top notch! For a resort restaurant - the staff is amazingly helpful, knowledgeable about food and wine, and accommodating. Husband and I dined here both times during our stay and felt right at home.

Will absolutely return when we visit the Langham, Pasadena again.

For a high end steakhouse it is a very nice hotel.

None of the food was bad (brother's steak and wife's John Dory were both over), but for what you're paying for the service could have been way better.

They couldn't keep track of who ordered what; were very slow clearing the table; forgot condiments and serving utensils...I could go on.

A one time experience.

Was disappointed when we asked for a recommendation of a house red and were surprised when we received the bill that the one the waiter chose was $38.00 for the glass. I feel that he definitely took advantage of the situation. Really left a bad taste in an overall wonderful dinner.

The marinated hamachi appetizer, filet mignon and potato puree were all excellent. I ordered the filet "blue" and it came rare (not blue) but that's pretty normal - very few kitchens understand how some people (me) love almost raw steak. The waiter was very nice but service was pretty slow - I was at the table for almost 10 minutes before I got water & bread, then another 10 minutes before someone came by to take my order. Expensive, but if you want a luxurious meal while visiting Pasadena, still very much worth a trip.

Charles was our waiter and he was outstanding. Very diplomatically steered my wife away from ordering her meat too well done, and she was very pleased with the result.
My wife also had the bread pudding for desert - said it was one of the best things she had ever eaten!
