Culinary Scene

Outdoor Dining Directory

Many Pasadena eateries offer alfresco dining—or even romantic rooftop retreats—where diners can soak in the Southern California sunshine alongside some of the region’s most tantalizing cuisine.

You will notice new social distancing measures, enhanced sanitation practices, reservation requirements, and changes in offerings for your health and safety. Reviewing each business website for hours and making reservations ahead of time is highly recommended. Face coverings are also mandatory and should be worn while entering businesses, walking around, waiting in line, and waiting for your food. Do your part to protect yourself and others.

Many restaurants are still open for delivery and takeout services, view the Dine Pasadena directory.
