I really love this restaurant. Decorated with palms, aquariums and a beautiful color scheme, it is truly a one of a kind restaurant located in old-town Whittier. I stop here at least once a month on my way home from L.A. The friendly, and efficient staff always makes me feel welcome and the service is great! They serve wine, beer... More

For a large city Whittier is oddly bereft of good eating places. Chains and burrito joints are the order of the day. California grill is the exception. They try hard. Portions are large. The service can sometimes be slow and servers seem to be confused. Not a great reccomendation but it is the only place in Whittier that it least... More

Since I live close by, I've been here at least a dozen times. I have never been disappointed with their food, whether it's breakfast (Great omelets and California Toast), lunch, or dinner. My favorite is their grilled chicken sandwich with avocado on squaw bread. The desserts are good as well, but I'm usually too full to order it. The last... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lives in Whittier, but I was underwhelmed. The service was very cloying, and with the college across the street that likely supplied the labor force, that was understandable. I was asked at least a dozen times if everything was all right, but each time the server was already starting to walk away... More

Visited the restaurant for lunch. We had no reservation on a Friday. It was really busy there. We were greeted very well and requested to wait for a few minutes. Very soon a table was allocated. The menu was elaborate. Everything on the menu looked delicious. All four ordered different dishes, from Pastrami to Chicken to Fish. All were delectable.... More

This is a uniquely-styled restaurant. When you first go in, you see enormous tropical fish tanks throughout the restaurant. Very friendly staff who attend to you immediately. The daily special is on the wall along with the soups of the day like, Carrot Ginger, Chicken Tortilla, or Minestrone. The menu items range from around $9.00 to around $20. The food... More

Have been here at least five times and never disappointed. The service is always good and different selections of food is very good. From calamari to pot roast sandwich with cheese bread. I haven't had a bad plate yet. It's a little pricey but when experience the freshness and quality of food it's worth it. The deserts are fantastic especially... More
