Classic french style Parisian restaurant, Yumi.

Lovely restaurant & staff.

I had the best experience at 1288 last night. I walked in and was greeted by a friendly hostess that led me to my table. A waiter came over to me within seconds of sitting down and handed me a menu. He recommended the fried chicken, which is what I ordered. My food came within the estimated time given to me by the waiter, which was 15 minutes. The chicken was crispy and hot and the sides were delicious. I enjoyed my dinner and when I went to pay, I saw a piece of paper with a heart on it that said: “Thank you for dining at 1288. We love having you here. Enjoy the rest of your night.” I also felt welcomed and comfortable in the restaurant and would definitely return to this spot next time I’m in Pasadena.

Enjoyed the escape from work to chill out and enjoy a nice meal with good company in their cozy little basement.

It is always nice to meet up with friends to catch up on our crazy lives. And it’s even better when you can escape from work and hang out at a nice little spot like 1288. The atmosphere was excellent, the food delicious as well as the service. This place has a great atmosphere and the staff are amazing. I have been here a couple of times and ever time is wonderful. I am a fan of the fried chicken, as well as the mashed potatoes that come with it. I have also had the lobster pot pie…delicious! My favorite drink is a old fashioned 🙂 This place is very cozy, but nice for a couple or small group. We were able to be seated upstairs with no wait on a Tuesday night. There is an elevator for those who need it, as well as a staircase and plenty of seating in the lounge so there is room. I will be back soon!

They offer you paper napkins and bibs as well as a great cocktail menu that includes all sorts of drinks such as gin tonic, mojito and many more. You can also use their menu builder or have your dish prepared for you by one of their friendly staff members. If you are looking for an evening restaurant in Pasadena, here is a really good choice!

I went here for the first time today for lunch with my mom. I had a pasta salad and it was soooooo good. It was a nice little intimate setting and the staff were so friendly. I will be back!
I love the feel of this place. It is so cozy and quaint on the inside that it feels like you’re in your own home. I ordered a hamburger from their menu builder and it was delicious. The price is also very reasonable for how good the food is. I highly recommend this place for a nice meal out on the town.

Yumi-Sushi-Sake-Bar opened its doors on the 3rd of June 2012 in Downtown Pasadena but has been popular on the West Coast since December 2010! Although it was not my first time visiting this place , I’ve never been back

I absolutely love this place. It is small but has a very cozy feel to it. The sushi is great and the price is right. I’m trying to come up with reasons why I should be allowed to eat sushi everyday because when I first started eating sushi, the stuff you buy at grocery stores was pretty gross. I have had far superior sushi at 1288. The only thing I don’t like about this place is that it’s not open all the time but hey, I guess that wouldn’t be a good idea either because then it would be too busy and it would be easy to get into the “abusive fish” patterns that many sushi places fall into.
