Consistently good and cooked in a healthy way, for example potatoes are baked instead of fried. You can order pretty much anything off the menu and feel good about what you're eating. The staff is really friendly and attentive, the flavors rich and meal portions large enough to be a meal without being excessive.

Stopped for a salad a sandwich for lunch in this busy restaurant. Somewhat surprised about the high praise reviews for what is a pretty standard restaurant. Can't say I would recommended it.

We took our usual morning walk - this past wknd in LA around our hotel (Beverly Hilton) and ended up at this awesome restaurant. The menu had many choices. Sitting outside at a cafe for breakfast on a gorgeous day is the best! I have eaten lunch from here before...excellent salads & sandwiches as well!

Nice place. Lovely food and big portions. They need to be a little cleaner. the service is fine but they need to be more attentive to customers. you have to wait till your waiter pays attention to you. I know it is by rule that waiters not serving your table won't help but we had to wait 10 minutes to... More

A girlfriend of mine works across the street from this restaurant in Beverly Hills and frequents it often on her lunch. On my visit here in LA, she recommended meeting her here for lunch. What a great place! The menu was vast and everything sounded amazing! I ended up ordering the ahi tuna salad. It was phenomenal. Service was excellent... More

The food is amazing. They take time to take your orders and bring your food but it is worth. Price is very reasonable and excellent for the quality and quantity of food you get.

We saw this from the freeway as we were exiting for a Rodeo Drive excursion. After checking out all the great shopping up and down Rodeo Drive, we decided to check out the Panini Grill (for some reason I thought is was called the Panini House...but I guess it's the P. Grill). Anyway, it was worth the short walk to... More

Their menu has two "highly recommended" items - one chicken panini (they have several chicken paninis on the menu) and one chicken shish kebab. We ordered both. It came with a delicious lentil soup - definitely recommend that you try that. They only serve beers from bottles - no beers on tap. They have a wide range of wine selections.... More

Happened upon this place on an evening stroll from our hotel. The restaurant's name is actually a little misleading as their range of menu items is quite extensive, with far more things on offer than their paninis. My chicken kabob was plentiful and delicious and on special offer for just $10. Friendly, attentive service a great meal and a low... More

Their food is so delicious and even though they're crowded, the staff is very welcoming and nice. The hummus is plate is one of my favorites, so is their avocado and romaine salad is very flavorful. The plates are huge too. I can usually split a salad and hummus plate with someone and walk away full. Definitely a good value!
