Diner Reviews
  • "Found this place late last year and have been coming on a regular basis since then. The food is so fresh and so good. Chef Ash always takes the time to stop by and chat with his guests. He makes everyone feel special and appreciated.."

  • "Food here is quite good, however, prices are steep. Any extras (salad/soup) are add-ons & start at $9+. The waiter offered us hummus & pita for the table, not informing us that it was not complimentary. I had the quinona salad, which was not special nor worth the $9 price tag. But my entree, the Branzino, was perfectly cooked & a treat. Just be forewarned that if you are the kind of person that enjoys an appetizer & soup/salad with your entree, then be prepared to spend a minimum of $100 per couple. Also it is bring your own wine, which is not a bad idea at all."

  • "I was very pleased with the courses I had at the restaurant, this evening. The lentil salad was a great way to start when accompanied by very good hummus and a generous basket of pita. I thought my main course, the lamb shank, great. The ambience may be a bit plain at this restaurant in a Freehold strip mall, but the food is delicious!"

  • "We were excited to find this restaurant in our new neighborhood, but it didn't live up to our expectations. First the service was slow. We waited too long to be greeted by our server. Then our entree course was slow as well. The young teen age wait staff was not attentive and didn't know the menu well and weren't able to answer questions. The food was not seasoned enough and we did not get a salt shaker for the table despite asking for one twice. Overall, the experience wasn't worth the over 50 dollars per person we spent."

  • "I recommend making a reservation. It was quite simple using Open Table. Great food!!! Good for vegetarians!!! Attentive waitstaff. BYOB. Manager readily available. Warm and inviting host. Great for a celebration or romantic night out. Easily spotted location. First time guests and we will definitely be returning."

  • "With such a varied menu, it wasn't hard to find something to suit everyone's taste. The quality of the food was very good. The portions were not very large, but they were appropriate....nobody left hungry, but there were no "doggy bags" with leftovers either. I really enjoyed the homemade gnocchi, and although the paella was quite different from what my husband expected (not prepared as is typical in a Spanish restaurant), he thoroughly enjoyed it. Our friends also enjoyed the rack of lamb and the lamb tagine. The ambiance is nice and we love that it's BYOB. The wait staff is extremely attentive, and Ash, the owner, is warm and friendly. We would definitely go again."

  • "Our first time there. We wanted to find a new place. Menu lives up to the name of the restaurant. Several lamb dishes, fresh seafood including octopus. The owner, Ash, very attentive and personable. Came over, introduced himself and gave input on several dishes. Bottom line, we had a great time and will go bachk"

  • "Both my husband and I were delightfully surprised by this local Mediterranean restaurant. The food was authentic, fresh and beautifully plated. To start we had an unusual appetizer special: stuffed grilled peach with crab and gorgonzola cheese. It was outstanding. I enjoyed the chicken and lamb Kofta with porcini mushrooms and Israeli couscous and Paul had the Australian Rack of Lamb with a cherry reduction sauce. Baklava for dessert was yummy. Our waitress, Melissa was terrific and so sweet. The Chef came over to chat a bit and told us of his monthly Sunday night cooking classes consisting of 6 courses costing only $45. We are definitely interested in that. They also have entertainment on Friday nights. This was a BYBO. I highly recommend."
