A word from California Grill of the Pajaro Valley
California Grill of the Pajaro Valley serves only the finest, locally-grown produce, meats and desserts. In fact, the restaurant owner grows all the organic vegetables and salads right here in the fields of the Pajaro Valley. It’s likely the produce on your plate was picked fresh from one of his organic fields just hours before it was prepared for you. Daily specials and desserts reflect the cycle of the seasons so you can experience flavors at their peak.Continued

  • "Very good food. Healthy ingredients and well cooked. Extensive list of menu choices. Outstanding addition to Watsonville restaurants. Attentive and polite staff. Enjoyed the Cajun Blackened Halibut, perfectly cooked vegetables and brown rice. I recommend this place to anyone who cares about eating healthy food."

  • "We were thrilled to find a restaurant that serves all locally-grown, organic vegetables and fruit, free-range, grass-fed meat, etc. The menu is huge, the food was delicious, the service was excellent. And best of all, it was the healthiest meal we've had at a restaurant pretty much ever. I hope more restaurants such as this will begin popping up everywhere."

  • "What a great spot!! Definitely better than a coffee shop and not quite a full blown white-table establishment, the CA Grill strives and reaches that 'sweet-spot' of what a GOOD restaurant is: attentive staff, interesting menu and delicious, CARED-ABOUT food. They also cover all the bases: veggie, organic, local and gluten-free!! Its is right there on the North edge of Watsonville. Easy to get to from Airport Blvd off Hiway 1 and so worth a quick turn-off on the way to Monterey or back to Santa Cruz. Show your out-of-town guests a bit of REAL CA!!"

  • "We went on Valentines day last Friday (Made reservations of course) Place was PACKED but got in right away to our table. From the appetizers, to the main course, to the dessert! 5/5 stars I give the food!!! AMAZING flavor, FRESH, friendly service. Hands down, Watsonville has a winner. With the Peixoto's as the new owners, you can taste and SEE the difference. LOVE it. Highly recommend it to others."

  • "The small city where California Grill of Pajaro Valley is located needs a good restaurant with a varied menu and consistently good food and service in a pleasant atmosphere. My first visit suggested that California Grill could be that restaurant. My visit got off to a rough start because of a technical glitch that somehow lost our Open Table reservation. They readily admitted their error when they checked Open Table and put us at the top of the list, so our wait was short. Overall, I found the dining experience unremarkable but good. Reasonably priced, well prepared dinners were served by a friendly, busy and prompt waitress. My guest and I left well satisfied."
