The Diplomat as I was craving for Mediterranean food. But ToGo for 10 adults. Called them and X2O Cafe also in Monrovia; however, I have to say that I was so much more impressed with The Diplomat because the person who took my initial call and Manager, Joey were so nice and helpful. They were very patient and accommodating making suggestions. Joey even mentioned that we didn't need to over order and scale it back, which surprised me as most business wouldn't do that as the more you order the more they make. This alone convinced me enough to go with them. Plus the reviews were really good, which of course helped to seal the deal. Here's what we ordered: 8 beef kebobs, 8 chicken kebobs, Rice pilaf enough for 10, 2 humus. Joey gave us extras (meat, veggies, humus, pita) which we weren't even expecting. He knows how to run a business that will have customers coming back for more. I highly recommend you to try this place.
This place is incredibly promising. Came by for dinner and drinks during the soft opening. The food was delicious. We ordered the falafel and the chicken. Some of the best around for sure. Drinks were great as well. Our bartender Luke was friendly and did a nice job managing the crowds. Looking forward to going back!
Stopped by on Wednesday night for a drink and snack. Hubby and I had the Hangar 24 chocolate porter, which was the best chocolate beer I've ever tasted. It was bold, chocolatey without being sweet. We split the hummus and pita, falafel and the chicken kabab plate. The falafel is a generous portion of 4 large pieces served on greens with a dipping sauce. The hummus was tangy, smooth and paired well with the pita. We enjoyed the chicken, it was tender juicy chunks of marinated breast meat, served on rice and grilled tomato and chiles. The service was friendly and prompt. A great place to enjoy a drink and appetizer outside of the regular heavy and fried bar food. Can't wait to go back!
Cool trendy bar serving specialty cocktails and Mediterranean food. Plenty of space, minimal wait, really good food and good service. Good for dates, hanging out with friends, and family dinners. Came here on a Friday night and it wasn't too busy. Parking was a major pain because of the street fair and a Pokemon go gathering at the library. We ordered the hummus with beef special and the chicken kebab plate. The hummus with beef was really good. Very rich and the small pieces of beef gave an extra zest. The chicken kebab plate was awesome. The rice was delicious with a mix of lemon added in. Chicken was juicy and tender. And the pepper and tomatoes were cooked well too. Would definitely recommend those two dishes and the portions were more than enough for two people. My experience was great. Bartender showed us our table pretty quickly, the servers were very attentive, and the food came out relatively quick. It was a cool trendy new place that offered great food and service. I would definitly come back when I'm in the mood for Mediterranean food and don't walk to make the drive to Raffi's.!
Great service and food, went after dinner for a snack and cocktails it was fairly empty, place is beautiful and clean. Loved the whiskey options. The food I had was delicious, I'm local and always in the area I'll be back
