There are not a lot of restaurants on Rodeo Dr. We found Panini Cafe a few blocks away. It was a busy, bustling place and seems very popular. We had great service. We both ordered panini's which came with a side salad. The panini and salad were both enough for two meals. I order the Chicken Pesto and it was... More

Horrible service and average food. There is nothing Mediterranean about this restaurant. Their plates are all rice and lettuce and minimal meats.

Food is delicious and if you're not hungry plate is good for sharing. If around Rodeo Drive it is a good stop for eating.

Panini Cafe is basically that - a regular sandwich shop that grills their processed meat in a panini press. Location is really good and the restaurant is clean, but that's about it...

Another instance when I wish Yelp had 1/2 star increments. I would give this restaurant 3.5 stars. We had lunch here on Saturday. Ordered the chicken vegetable soup, a chicken shish kabob and a koobideh (ground sirloin) kabob. Both entrees came with a choice of salad and rice and is a good value for $13-$14 as the portion is pretty... More

The Panini Cafe is a wonderful place to eat and relax. The food here is amazing. It's so delicious and a great place to eat healthy. The staff here are friendly and very helpful. We did not have to wait for anything. There is indoor and outdoor seating. It's a beautiful place to enjoy in Beverly Hills.

The food was amazing me and my whole family enjoyed it as I am a vegetarian I was happy to find there was a vegetarian option. On the other hand, there was a long wait for the food and the restrooms were not the cleanest. Other than that the cafe was great with delicious food!

Helpful staff and large portions. Have eaten here before when visiting five years ago and loved the place. On this occasion must have had the wrong dish having read other reviews. My salmon salad - the salmon nice but salad appeared pre-prepared. I do not like diced vegetables. Also the red wine not well kept. Would not stop me visiting... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
