We recently had a dinner party at this restaurant. I had pre-negotiated a deal with the manager. He wrote the contract in a sloppy way that could have been interpreted in several ways. Since we had gone over our agreement on the phone

This place is one of a kind. It is in Old Town Pasadena but hidden so you feel like you are going to an exclusive club. The food is amazing and so is the service. It is very pricey but worth every penny.

I took a business associate to JJ's on a weekday night. He ordered a steak, and I having just returned from New Zealand where the lamb is the world's best ordered JJ's version, It was pure gristle and I could not even begin to eat it.

Pros: food, service, wine

This is a very nice restaurant with great food and great service. This restaurant is upscale so be prepared to pay for it. But it is a great place to take a date. Try to get seating in their outdoor patio where you get a nice view of old town Pasadena. This restaurant serves steak and seafood and both are very well made. They also have a good selection of wines and martinis. The only downside is that you need to pay for parking because it is located in downtown Pasadena.

PROS: Food is terrific
CONS: Pay for parking

Excellent steaks and Chilean Seabass. They make a mean martini. Great place to impress a client or for that "special" date. Romantic candlelight dinner atmosphere.

Pros: Excellent Food, Great Ambience

The food was excellent!! Large portions!! Go Hungry! The only food thing was the wedge of lettuce they bring you it just looks so unappealing!! The service was a bit stuffy! For a much older crowd, I think, Maybe in their 50's.

Delayed in traffic & was able to change reservation. Valet was not around so we did the garage parking. Buzz the back door & take the elevator up. Business casual was ok as it's a dark room with candles. Crab cakes were tender yet crispy.

A dark and florid dining room abloom with statues, flowers and candles, JJ's is the big-deal date spot on Old Town Pasadena's Colorado Boulevard. With its crooning lounge pianist and affably affected air, the place is…
