Ok food. Great music – I love places like this. I love all kinds of music too so, it was fun for me. The food was ok, nothing great and certainly nothing to write home about. Good coffee.
The group I saw that day were on piano and sax. It was great music. I was alone, so I just sat there, enjoyed my coffee and listened to their music. Good stuff.
Too much Salt – Had brunch here. The food was too salty and the piano and sax too loud. We were seated at a table across the room from the jazz duo and had to almost yell to hear each other. I had a veggie omelet and hash browns with fruit. The only thing on my plate not overly salty was the fruit. The hash browns were well cooked (probably over cooked) and the omelet was kind of dry. The service was very good.
Terrible Experience – Brought a date to this restaurant. The atmosphere was nice, but the burger I ordered had a hair in it. This did not compare to an hour later when we became ill from something in the food. I almost had to go to the ER. Horrible night thanks to unsanitary food conditions.
Amazed by the goodness – I have eaten here for Dinner and Sunday brunch both were amazing... I never had an issue with service, although I did notice that the staff does give you space and lets you enjoy the atmosphere, your meal, and your company. Only disturbing you when convenient or if summoned.
When I had dinner, my girlfriend and I elected to try the 3 courses with the wine pairings per course. I'd have to say their pairings were awesome...they went quite well with each dish. Although it paired well, there was however one wine I did not really enjoy and once I mentioned this to our waiter, he gladly replaced it with another just as suitable with my dish but better on my palate.
I highly recommend the Black Cherry Mojitos, The only place I have seen them, they are O so good and the Bloody Mary's are nice and spicy as well.
One Cheese? – I was kind of surprised that the cheese and meat plate we ordered had only 1 cheese, and nothing special, only a havarti type, and tiny in portion compared to the mounds of fatty prosciutto. Maybe it was an off night in the kitchen or there was a run on cheese . . .
Service outside was really slow.
Great food, Jazz and drink selection. Their cocktail selection is great and the best part is, they have wine on tap!
Not the place for a quick meal. – I read all the reviews and its pretty much dead on. So I knew what to expect when I got to the restaurant. The service was slow; we had a three hour dinner. Just get menus, water, and our wine corked took about 20mins. The waitress said she would be back in a minute to take our appetizer order, 15mins later she was back at our table. The food was great. There were 6 people and we all ordered something different. All our plates were cleaned. The salmon was great, and the burger was on target. Both dishes are worth ordering again. The deserts were very good as well. I would recommend the three sherbets and the carrot cake. Although the Lava brownie was a nice treat too. They aren?t in a hurry to turn tables, so if you are into a long dinner, and want to relax. This will be a place. But If you have a movie to catch or friends to meet up with after dinner. I would skip it. The Corkage is $20! Not the best rate in Pasadena.
Go to Cafe 322 instead – I love live music and I love jazz....but after having tried out both Redwhite + bluezz and then cafe 322 a few weeks later...I have to recommend that you pass on this place.
Cool Place, Not the Best Service – The overall experience was good, but we waited quite a while for our food and my braised short rib was lukewarm. It tasted good, but I would have expected it to be hot given the prices. The restaurant wasn't very busy and the service still seemed somewhat slow. The wine experience was great.
I really enjoyed this place. – I'm not a huge wine buff, but I often travel with a group that really enjoys it. Redwhite + Bluezz was perfect for us. I went with a group of 6 and they managed to seat us without any problems. I loved the food. If you love cheese as much as I do, you must try one of their ?cheese flight? plates. Their steak is great. And the boneless beef short ribs my friend had were delicious. After dinner we headed over to the back of the building where they have an awesome bar and jazz club. The music was great and the environment was fun and inviting. Parking and waiting for a table was no better or worse than any other decent place in LA, so I really have no complaints. It?s a fun place that I would recommend.
