The Royce is a very fancy steakhouse inside the very fancy Langdam Hotel in Pasadena, but despite the high cost of absolutely everything here, it’s largely worth it. This is where you go to impress someone extremely important or, at the very least, feel like the offspring of a high-powered politician. So go put on your Sunday best and pretend to live that high life for a night. Just don’t forget to order the crab cakes.

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar
Fleming’s is a very mediocre steakhouse, but has one of the best Happy Hours downtown.
Suggested by our writers
Dan Tana’s is an LA classic and the kind of place where every night feels like a celebration.
You wouldn’t want a Manhattan made by a 17 year old, so don’t trust your steaks to one either. Taylor’s Steakhouse has the experience.
Lawry’s The Prime Rib
Lawry’s might be a bonafide chain, but its original Beverly Hills location still has lots of magic.
