Grapevine Mediterranean Cuisine - La Verne

Grapevine Mediterranean Cuisine - La Verne 1

Grapevine Mediterranean Cuisine restaurant is a century-old house with a hookah lounge and belly dancing on weekends. Although, it was the first and not the second or third that caused me to dine there.

Actually, the real reason I got lil' sis to dine with me back in March was the lack of dining options in this area and that we had a buy-one-get-one-free coupon.

We went for lunch since prices were slightly cheaper than dinner. We were seated in the patio area. I asked, but there was no seating inside during lunch time. I guess there wasn't much point because the entire time we were there, only one other customer showed up. One. As in, he dined alone.

I don't know how it is during dinnertime, but it seemed like an awfully big, empty space.

We started off with complimentary pita bread, pickled turnips, and olives.

Beef/lamb shawarma with rice, pita bread and grilled tomato, $12.99. A little on the dry side to be honest.

The chicken was in a tahini sauce with olives, $13.99. But since we had the coupon, it was $13.99 for both entrees. The mashed potatoes were sooo good. Very creamy.

And that was that. Not horrible. Not stellar. Might have revisited if I had another coupon, but I moved and it wasn't worth driving 30 miles for an OK meal.
