I had the mixed meat platter
I had the mixed meat platter (Jerusalem mix) with Israeli salad and baba ghanoush; my wife had chicken kabobs. Everything was hot, fresh, and nicely presented at the table. The high point for both of us was the falafel, hummus, and tahina. The falafel was absolutely the best I've had in the Bay Area so far, comparing equally to the falafel I had in Israel. JG&B's Israeli salad needed more mint and/or parsley, but other than that the food was first rate. I'd readily eat here again and recommend it to anyone.

A very special place where
A very special place where I enjoy the food and run into a lot of people I know. I especially enjoy the "special menu" nights (sushi, Mexican, etc.) as well.

Big portions, reasonable prices
Had a bean soup and a felafel sandwich for lunch, served with fresh pita & tehina. Felafel balls were lightly fried, not too oily but still lots of flavor. Been here a few times in the past months. The owner of the restaurant is usually welcome clients as they come in and answer any questions. The waiters are friendly as well.

Jerusalem Grill and Bar
Israeli style food -- pita, falafel, kabobs, etc. with a bit of eastern Europe (i.e., schnitzel, goulash). Glatt kosher. Had the schuwarma plate and found the meat a tad dry, but well flavored. Both of us liked the Hummus with ground beef appetizer - wasn't sure about the combo but the hot (beef) and cold (hummus) was amazingly good. I'm going back -- there are so many things to try.

Fine dining at the Jerusalem Grill
I was impressed with the fine dining experience. The ambiance was warm and friendly. The food is well spiced and delicious. The servers are helpful and the food arrived in a timely wait.
