The food and service is always good. Their breakfast menu never disappoints. The menu is extensive enough to always find what you want.

We have been coming to the California Grill for years and have never been disappointed. They have new offerings often which have always been good and we also have our favorites that we return for. We have had family gatherings here and there is such a variety of choices, everyone's taste can be satisfied.

We had a huge party outside in the patio. The service was good since it's so difficult serving a large party. The staff was friendly and the food was good. Lots of selections to choose from salads to sandwiches.

A family restaurant. Good food and reasonable price; clean and great service. Menu is varied all three meals. Indoor and patio dining. Convenient location, Painter Avenue in uptown Whittier. Sports TV and quiet ambience. Beer and wine.

My grandmother took me here to eat when we visited SoCal, and we sat for hours talking. The service never waned and was always pleasant. The food was amazing. This is a must stop location!

My wife and I ate here this morning with friends and the service was excellent. Our server as very good, and we loved the breakfast meal. Plus, I love restaurants with booths for visiting or meetings, and this one has that covered. I like the relaxing atmosphere here.

It's my favorite thing here and they go through good and bad times, right now the sandwich is in one of the best times they've had. Sometimes they get cheap on the meat but not for the last 4 months! Just needs more au jus!!

The menu offers a variety of California cuisine that will please all diners regardless of the meal ordered. Generous portions at reasonable prices with a friendly and helpful staff. We have been served consistently high quality meals at each visit. Ample parking in their lot and adjacent street.

While menu is good. The restaurant does not accommodate the volume of people. Lots of waiting for table, people watching/waiting over shoulder for table.

Thank Ernest S
