    Poor service. Chicken dried out and tough. The 19 salads mediocre and redundant. Asked for tea twice never received it. Asked for spoons for the salads twice, never received enough of them.

    The Salad Sampler was really great! The service was aweful. We were a group of 10 celebrating 2 birthdays and we loved the food (although it was very pricey), but the service was so bad, we are not sure if we would go back again.

    this place was perfect. We had reservations for 12 and a baby that turned out to be 13. They accommodated us without any problems. We had lots of people with lots of needs and the service was amazing. Their salad for the group was perfect. It gave us never ending food with an incredible variety. So we had enough for everyone and something to favor every individual palate. They did not rush us to leave. The food was excellent in both quality and amount. They did not add an automatic tip which always annoys me. Instead I rewarded them with a very generous tip (much greater than the usual 15% that a restaurant will add) and they definitely earned it. Be sure to check in on Yelp for a 10% discount.

    This was our second time eating at Itzik Hagadol Grill. Well worth the trip from San Diego, would make the drive just for dinner even if we weren't going to be in the Los Angeles area for other reasons. The food, service and atmosphere is outstanding. My only advice is go hungry, you will truly have a dining experience

    Lamb kabobs are terrific. Love the hummus and Israeli salad. the baba ghanoush is amazing. Wish they had the mediterranean eggplant. Fun place to go with big groups so you can share a lot of salads/sidedishes.

    I heard good things about this place, so decided to get a Groupon for it. My Romanian skewers were terrible (no flavor, undercooked) but the salads, schnitzel, tanhini in roasted egglplant) were really good. I thought it was a bit pricey.

    This was not our first time here and the food had been better before. My wife’s beef kabobs were extremely highly-seasoned and spicy, and they hadn’t been before when she’s had them. They made her another order, and the second order was better, but only slightly. My “House Kebab” was great, but my daughter had the grilled chicken breast, at my insistence, and it was bland in flavor. We prefer Hummus Bar & Grill in Tarzana much better.

    Our waitress came over to us when she realized that no body else was....and she was on top of it after that, and very sweet. The owner or manager walks around the restaurant with an angry look on his face, not sure what he was doing because he certainly wasn't checking to make sure that we were being waited on or received the high-chair that we requested when we got there and which we finally got 20 min later. He did seem to have a fun time socializing with his friends though, who stood smoking a foot away from the patio that we were sitting on. The food is good though.

    Food and service was very good. Tried this restaurant with a discount coupon, ordering 2 set lunch meals at $13 & $17. Establishment refused my Yelp discount coupon, stating that the set lunch (offered every day) was a "special offer" that didn't qualify for discount. Of course, this was not spelled out anywhere on the coupon. Had they written, "does not apply to lunch menu" on the coupon their position would have been justifiable. Cashier/host said they would change the coupon language for the future. But it marred the experience leaving a very sour taste in my mouth.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here. There is plenty of food! Make sure if this is your first time to ask the server how to order. We had three people and the total bill was $57 (one beer/one wine) - and we were stuffed! Also they appear to always have a groupon attached $30 worth of food for $18 - so that also was a big plus. The wine is expensive per glass so I went with a beer.

    If you're a vegetarian, you will fall in love with the array of vegetarian dishes. If you're a meat eater, bring it on, cause they've got it and it's all very good. Love this place. Brought a party of eight and everyone was so happy and full. Went to the location in Israel and this place was every bit as good.

    We went there last Saturday, a party of 6. Friends recommended this restaurant. Two of us wanted to order the unlimited salad for $17.99, the others a regular dinner. We were told that everybody would have to order the salads. I guess they are afraid the others would eat from the unlimited salad! Unbelievable! They finally ordered the salmon skewer. 15 minutes later the waiter came back and told us that they are out of salmon and offered sea bass skewer for the same price. The sea bass was dry and both of them ate less than half. I had the Schnitzel, it was very dry as well. The others had lamb kebab but also did not like it. We were very disappointed and will not go there again.

    Tzik has a wonderful concept were they flood the table with salads. These different salads are all fresh and flavorful. You can have the multiple salads as an entree or as a side with any entre. This was my first time and I spent a very relaxing 2 hour Sunday lunch . . . relaxing except for the screaming baby at the next table. This kid could scream and the parents didn't seem to notice.

    Always our first choice when needing to take guests or invite friends to a fun dinner experience. NEVER fails to impress. The Mezeh option maaay sound expensive as some may have commented. But by the time you evaluate the ammount of food and quality, it is a no brainer great deal. Bottom line, probably best Mid Eastern food this side of Mid East.

    Friendly atmosphere, plenty of servers, but ours seemed too busy to attend to our table, with the restaurant only about half full. I was unable to order a second drink. Nice and clean, food was tasty, but a bit pricey. Main course comes with only one side order. We sipped our drinks for 15 mins before bread with accompaniments arrived, followed 5 minutes later by our main course. Most tables inside are in the open, which is ok for a group, but there are booths for 2 diners (us), or 4 (a tight squeeze), that shield the noise and give some privacy. Some patio tables are right up against the window, so we (inside) had a table with 6 other guests just 2 feet away from us, awkward for us and them. Good food, so will go back though.
