Best place in Pasadena area for celebratory dinner?

I've searched Yelp, but want some personal recommendations.

I'm taking my best girl friend out for a celebratory meal since she's moving to Dubai in a few days, and want someplace where we can get delicious food, drinks and an atmosphere.


I'm looking outside of the chain restaurant box, so hold the "Cheesecake Factory" tips. :) THANK YOU!

      Oh, forgot to mention she's a vegetarian! So Racion is out considering the focus seems to be meat & fish.

      Anything else?

    2. Parkway Grill? I would think they'd have a couple of veg options.

        This would be my suggestion, too, as I'm sure they would be happy to accommodate, and are also likely to have good ingredients to make something nice for a vegetarian.

      2. Check out the tasting menu at the Royce at the Langham. Looks like they can accommodate vegetarians.


        1. The new Trattoria Neapolis (on S. Lake) comes to mind as being a good option for vegetarians. It looks to be a beautiful and celebratory space....
