We usually head south on Brand from our offices to find lunch, but after a while, the selections get a bit boring. I'd known all along that Mediterranean Grill was just to the north, off the beaten path, but it took me a really long time to come over and check it out. The wait, as they way, was well worth it. I love the fresh pita sandwiches, the Athens fries (delicious and hold their flavor, even "to go"), and the steak salad. And my colleague noted that the Greek styled pita pizza and salad combo were pretty good as well. There's sometimes a bit of a wait after you place your order, and many people seem to call ahead if they want their food to go. There's seating in the restaurant, an outdoor patio, and additional seating in an atrium-type area adjacent to the lobby of the office building the restaurant is located in. All in all a great place, a bit hidden, but worth the discovery.

First, this is a hall. It fits about 110 people so it is perfect for a birthday. I threw my partner a 30th birthday party. The owner is really accomodating and has a good sense of humor, the staff has limited English but they are Armenian so that is expected. The food was AWESOME. For the price we paid per guest (our party was only 70 people) everyone raved about the food both about the quality and the quantity. The only draw back is that it is in an ok neighborhood (not in an incredible one). Also, the entrance has some old couches but I put up balloons to obscure that fact. Other than than, that, the inside is nice and the bathrooms are very clean. the dance floor fits the crowd (it is not huge) but when you are dancing, it is very well suited and felt spacious to me.They also suggested a DJ and he turned out to be Excellent.
Note: The full name should be Massif Mediterranean Grill I wish I had words for how good this place is. Ordered delivery and it was quick and painless. Chicken kebab plate - phenomenal. Beef kebab plate - Also phenomenal. Beef shawarma hummus - amazing. Manti - If I could fathom the happiness these tiny dumplings brought me, I would know the true meaning of life. Pita - standard store bought. Rice - delicious. Garlic sauce - please. Omg please. I need this in an IV drip because reasons. Cheese borek - pretty good. There was so much more I wanted to order, but I can only fit so much into my black hole of stomach. Overall, I was very happy and round afterwards. Couldn't be happier. Kudos to the chef! I'll definitely be back here.
