    The food was good however the service was unfortunately very slow. In our party of 7 people, 2 people were served first & later on 3 more were served...& finally the last 2 people were served their meal... In other words, we didn't eat our meals together, though we sat at the same table.

    Great vibe, hip scene. Felt like we were walking into a 5-star restaurant. Everything we had was skillfully prepared and tasted great. Only tip - don't expect beer or wine - after all you are on a church campus - however the food and ambience made up for the lack of libations.

    My dad and I went here to eat before going to the church service on a Wednesday evening. We had brussel sprouts as an app and he had the fish of the day which was salmon and I had the mahi pita wrap. Everything was amazing! I would surely recommend the food here to anyone. The menu has a variety of items and each day there are specials to choose from. Another interesting and tasty treat is that they have their own garden where many of their vegetables and herbs are grown. You can really taste the freshness!

    Eating at the Grill after worship service at Calvary just adds the worship experience. This is the only restaurant that doesn't play loud rock or pop music during meal service but inspirational music that enhances the dining experience. The food is great and the servers really have a heart to serve. I love it!

    This restaurant is tucked away in the center of the Calvary Chapel campus. To reach the Grill, one has to walk past the Cafe, which is a large cafeteria similar to a college cafeteria. The grill is a very nice setting. Their brunch menu was somewhat limited, but there was a full lunch menu. My wife had a salad. One guest had a tuna melt, and the other had bang bang. I had a grilled chicken breast sandwich. All the food items were very good including crisp french fries served with two of the meals. We shared two key lime pie orders between the four of us. Absolutely delicious! One of the best versions in the area. The desserts at the other table looked equally good. Video screens show either church services or other religious content.

She was attentive, cheerful and made sure we were able to get there on time. The food was very fresh and made with quality organic veggies from the in house organic garden. Nice portion sizes. Delicious. Moderately priced. I will definitely go back!

    Great place to have a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner. They even have their own garden that produces lots of their fresh greens and herbs organically. The brussels sprouts on the new menu are to die for. They have my favorite soup on Fridays...coconut curry chicken.
