We eat here every time we visit Whittier for a concert. They take reservations which is a nice added feature. Everyone in our party of six had a different dish and they were all delicious. The salmon was exceptional as well as the pasta dishes. Always save room for dessert, or better yet, order some cobbler to go. The service... More

Very average café near Whittier college. The staff is very friendly, and the service is pretty good. Plus, parking is a breeze behind the restaurant. Those are some great positives. However, the food is just your basic eggs, plain omelets, and standard fare. If you want some food that’s a bit more interesting, just go a few blocks to downtown... More

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.

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.
