This neighborhood restaurant is excellent for a couple, a family or larger groups as they have two side rooms. The diverse menu offers excellent fare for even the most discerning diner.

If you stay in Ridgecrest for any length of time (now on second 3 week stay) you end up revisiting the same restaurants. The Grape Leaf in on that lit, and offers an ok meal for a good price. As I've written about before I don't believe many of the regular places would measure up in the UK, but this... More

On arrival in Ridgecrest my friend and I were a little bit disappointed at the lack of restaurants nearby, but we decided to give this place a chance. The food was excellent, as was the service. Really enjoyed the mediterranean nachos!

Meal was ok. I had the chicken Mediterranean which was good but another individual had the lamb skewer which he said was awful. Atmosphere was ok but not great. Staff was good.

I used to go here quite a bit because it was new, different and good food. The last few months that I tried it I have been disappointed. Food quality has gone down, prices have gone up, and quantity seems smaller then before. The lunch buffet is nothing to go back for. Wish it would go back to a year... More

Nice to be back to a favorite eatery in Ridgecrest. Service is always with a smile, even from our favorite waiter, Ricky! Food is fresh, presentation great, service excellent, prices VERY reasonable and you can actually hold a conversation without excessive noise. I had the Mediterranean chicken done to perfection. Like General MacArthur said... "I shall return!!"

This is an excellent restaurant..!! Everything and I mean everything is made fresh daily. They have a very diverse menu too. Even the pasta they serve is made fresh from scratch every morning. The prices here are also very reasonable. Will I go here again? You bet I will..!!

Something is wrong, when your Gyro Plate ($16.99 + Tax) has 5 lean strips of meat, 1 1/2 inches by 3 - 4 inches long with 2 quarters of a pita bread and the best part it is fried Gyro meat, not off the roasting spit. This place wouldn't survive in LA or OC. Definitely not worth it.

Ordered hummus. It came with the most stale pita bread I've ever seen. The waitstaff here is decent but the food is always a gamble. It's either great or inedible, and tonight wasn't great. My friend had a caprese panini, and he finished about two bites. The tomato was underripe, the mozzarella was half an inch thick and greasy and... More

The food was good enough and the facility excellent. Sevice great. They just ran chronically behind in keeping the serving trays stocked. Both the chicken and ribs never resurfaced and we got there just after noon. The only thing that seemed to get renewed was the beef strips. We kept waiting and finally decided it was time to go back... More
