“Excellent food -- very fresh and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

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 this restaurant as it was fantastic. Top notch service and super fresh, healthy, incredible food. Will definitely go back next time I'm in the area. Oh, and the prices were very reasonable too!

“Very good healthy food, good service at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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. If order a bottle - they will have a $10 corkage fee. I guess if you're in Bev Hills - you expect to pay this.

On the whole, excellent experience. We need to grab quick dinner before heading back south. It was a perfect choice.

“Excellent food at reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

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 bill - excellent.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

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!
