Upscale restaurant in downtown Pasadena. Went here for an anniversary dinner and the food was exceptional. It is a bit pricey so it's great for special occasions.

Awesome food, and I love the crowd. I feel right at home here. The ambience has a special feel to it. My favorite time to come is for the Sunday Gospel brunch.

Pros: Fun place to hang out

Cons: Parking is difficult at best

I've always loved going to Twin Palms. It's been a favorite of mine for at least 14-15 years. Great atmosphere, wonderful Sunday gospel brunches, excellent food. But alas, Twin Palms has become another casualty of the economic downturn. They will close their doors November 25. Now THAT is a bummer.

This place has an indoor seating and outdoor (gazebo covered patio seating. It gets very crowded during the weekends. At 10pm live bands starts playing a mixture of music or DJ spinning. It can be a fun place, however it is populated mostly by more mature people (40ish and up), there are younger crowds as well (not as much). The food was delicious. We had 4 guests in our group we all ordered different dishes. I sampled all and every single plate was tasty. I ordered Salmon - it was fresh, tasty and cooked just right. The chicken alfredo was very delectable as well. The service however was terrible. It took our server at least 15 minutes to acknowledge us. Another 15 to take our orders for drinks, 20 minutes to bring it to us. All this just for drinks. Not to mention how long the server took to come back for our food orders and how long it took for us to get our plates. Over-all we spent 2.5 hours, which wouldn't be too bad if we were enjoying ourselves. If you were sitting at a bar next to each other, trying to enjoy the music - then the place would've been perfect. However we went for a birthday dinner, it didn't go well since it was way too crowded, too loud and we couldn't even converse with each other without having to raise our voices. The plates were average amount ranges from $15 above. They have a full bar. The outdoor patio is very bright, so if you're in a romantic date this wouldn't be the right spot. Its too loud and too bright. The indoor seating may be a bit more apt for the occasion. Street parking is available, however it is very limited. There is a parking structure right next to the restaurant that offer 90 min free.

If you have some money and want to take someone to a nice birthday dinner, or treat yourself right, this is the place to go. It's a little pricey, but the food is good

I always take out of town friends here. Great service, great atmosphere, and the food is always good. Lunch specials are usually available. I avoid going there at night -- too crowded.

My friend had her bachelorette dinner party here and we had a great time. The food was good, but it is one of those places where you might expect one thing and then get another. Still good food, but sometimes just not what you expect. The drinks were good and the live music made it fun. We sat a little close to the stage, so it was a little hard to talk over the music. But when the band went on break, we could hear each other just fine.
The restaurant closes and then it just becomes a night club atmosphere, but hopefully your waiter will be as good as ours and you know that the kitchen will be closing and ask if there is anything else you would like.
I do recommend dessert. Those were good too.

This restaurant is always pretty busy. They usually have live music and a dance floor. The food is rather tasty, a little upscale but some dishes are pretty reasonable.

Great place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and etc. The food is delicious, with great proportions. The atmosphere is lively with live music that you can enjoy with family and friends. There is also a dance floor.

Wonderful ambience, fun music and great food All in all a great place to have a great evening. I think the cover bands and salsa music are great. Not to mention they make a great martini

Twin Palms is one of those type of restaurants that you'll sure to keep coming back. It's very easy, has a huge bar, has an outside patio dining, and a live band (dancing)! It's always fun and food is great! This is a great spot for large groups. A great fun and easy date spot in the heart of Old Town Pasadena.

Just had brunch at this restaurant with my family this weekend to celebrate "Grandparent's Day". The atmosphere was great and easily accommodated large parties (we had 20 total in our party)! There was some jazz being played by a live band. However, I was disappointed with the food selection. There was not much variety and some of the items like the quiche looked so dry that I didn't even bother taking any (and I love quiche!). Also, juice was not included in the price of the brunch. With the price over $38/pp (that includes tax & gratuity), I expect juice to be included. I definitely will not have brunch there again. I might give dinner a try, but not anytime soon.

Twin Palms is a very unique place. They serve pretty good American food and Sunday brunch. They have a really nice outdoor patio They also have live entertainment. I would say that the service is very good and the prices are reasonable.

I've held a couple of dinner parties at Twin Palms. The catering department are friendly, professional, accommodating and never have a problem getting in contact with someone to discuss the smallest of details. Both parties went without a hitch -- all my friends/relatives enjoyed the food and the martinis and stayed through the night dancing and enjoying life. If I ever have to throw a large party again or just for a night out with the girls, this will definitely be on my top list.

we went here for a friends birthday dinner. they made a special menu for us. it was fantastic. i got the steak and salmon. it was soo good. the desert cake was also phenomenal. the service and drinks were excellent. afterwards we danced. the crowd is a little older, well older than my college age friends, probably becuase it is more expensive. it is a very nice place to go to dinner or just hang out

I went here for an organizations Christmas party. It was amazing. They had it decorated beautifully and we had a whole room to ourselves. The food was to die for and they were very attenttive to such a large group. There was live music playing and we had a great time. I would love to go back here sometime for another event.

I've been here for a brunch with my husband on the weekend, which was a very nice buffet, and for lunch during the week. They have a $10 express lunch which has a nice selection of options, and we didn't have any huge issues with the service. They have live music on the weekend and that was very fun. It's in a very pretty building with nice outdoor seating that feels very California and welcoming.

.... since it's basically outdoors under a big tent -- midwesterners and easterners are awed. Can go year-round because the tent is heated. Food is a little inconsistent - varies from excellent to just good. Entertainment is a plus. Try Sunday brunch.

I went to Twin Palms both for drinks and then again for lunch. I had a good experience both times. For a bar, this is a fun place to hang out with friends. Drinks are strong so watch out if you are a lightweight! When I went for lunch, I ordered the Gnocci and it was fantastic! Service here was really good and fast. Prices are high but the food is fantastic. Go to Twin Palms on a special occassion. I thought it had a great atmosphere (outdoors) on both occassions. Parking can be found in the nearby Delacey Street garage.

PROS: Great food and atmosphere
CONS: expensive

Twin Palms is a wonderful place to eat and on a Friday or Sat. night it's a great place to party. They have great drinks and it's just a great atmosphere. It's located just South of Colorado Blvd in Pasadena.

This restaurant is fabulous! You can eat outside under this large covering. In the evenings they have live music, great drinks and a fun atmosphere. You can't go wrong if you are looking for a place to eat in Old Town. Park in 90 minute free parking lot.

When I went there for my friend's birthday, it was average. The prices are high but the size of the meal doesn't match the price. There were also quite a few items on the menu that weren't available to order due to a shortage or something and that looks unprofessional. The server was very friendly but at times was no where to be found. I would recommend the Creme Brulee, it was so tasty.

Twin Palms has the right mix of atmosphere, clientele, food, and fun. I've been there several times when there's a musician quietly performing or a really intersting video playing on the big screen. They have unique, exciting specialty drinks. The food is good but sometimes not "assembled with care" if you will. A bit pricey but makes for a nice dinner out, especially with a group of friends.

I love going to this unique restaurant. The food is great, although a bit overpriced, and the ambiance is very nice. It is upper-scale, but not too stuffy. When we tried to get a table on New Years Eve last year and they were booked, the manager wentway beyond the call of duty and called around to a bunch of other restaurants for us until he found one that would take us. Great service!
