Food was adequate (nothing special), service was alright (not excellent or even good). Prices were a tad high for what you get.

California Grill is blocks away so we have visited often and have never been disappointed. Service is timely and waiters are friendly.

I always stop by the California grill when in Whittier. They have a great selection all day for each meal, reasonable priced and always fresh. Service is quick and friendly and never rushed. A must eat restaurant when in Whittler.

Whenever we have a craving for great sandwiches, we go to California Grill! I've ordered salads there too and appetizers, particularly the buffalo wings and the quesadillas, and we've enjoyed them too.

This restaurant never disappoints. From breakfast, lunch or dinner. Service is always good with a super friendly staff. Dishes are well served and they have a happy hour too. I wished they bottled the lemon vinaigrette dressing. They provide warm bread for dinner. Definitely a favorite and I always look forward to returning.

This is a 70s era high-ceilinged upscale coffee shop that feels very California with its casual, open decor. Always filled with people of all ages. We had Sunday brunch. French toast was absolutely yummy, eggs benedict were just OK. Service was great, always friendly

Nice clean restaurant. I had the chopped salad with chicken and it was good . No rush in getting you out as I was there for a lunch meeting. Very clean but small restroom.
