Diner Reviews
  • "After visiting ML for the first time, a week earlier, and being pleasantly surprised, I was disappointed with this visit. First, we had to wait 1/2 hour past our reserved time. Table was acceptable, even though adjacent to the ingress/egress of the restaurant to the patio seating. I think the restaurant was conserving food, trying to make their inventory go further because the qty was different from our first visit, even though I ordered the same entree. Maybe the key is to dine during the week; Saturday night, expectedly crowded. Finally, our server seemed to lack time management skills. Every time he said he'd be back in a minute, it took nearly five minutes or more; about three times he did this."

  • "My favorite comfort food is the dishes from what we generally call the Mediteranian area so this was my kind of place. 3 of us met up for an early dinner and within 30 minutes the tables were really filling up, a sure sign of a good find. We found the meze appetizers to be very authentic and a blend from several countries within this region. Entrees were also tasty but several wines were not in stock and all of the specials printed on the menu were no longer available. I would suggest they print new menus reflecting the new choices! Still, the wine we got was very nice and half of on Monday and who doesn't love a half of sale? Lamb was tender, shrimp fresh and chicken kabobs had great flavor."

  • "The food and the service make this place a phenomenal restaurant! If you want Mediterranean food this place has it. They make their own pita onsite and the hummus and baba ganoush were an excellent pairing. The kabobs were cooked so well. We had a filet, chicken and lamb kabob that were out of this world. What topped everything off was the service. We initially were sat at a small table for two. Once our food came out it became clear we needed more space. The waitress immediately found us a larger table and sat us down without us having to ask. The staff there is very friendly and organized. I love it!"

  • "We drive for 1/2 hour to enjoy the food, service and ambiance. Feels like a special destination. We enjoy it with or without the music."

  • "Busy night, we enjoyed the chicken shawarma very much. It had great flavor as did the potato appetizer and the eggplant dish."

  • "They did not honor our reservation for 6 people. It was a cold night and they had no place to wait, we needed to stand outdoors. After waiting 1/2 hour we left."

  • "I wish I could write about the food at Magic Lamp but the fact is, I never got a chance to try it. I made a reservation through Open Table three days before our planned dinner. We were a party of eight and it was a dual celebration. We got to the restaurant 10 or 15 minutes before our reservation time. When our reservation time rolled around, one of the girls came up to us and said that it was going to be "a really long time" before we would get seated. Because they had accepted a reservation that day for a party of 18 to be seated before us. Most of that party wasn't even at the restaurant yet - just a few folks. So our birthday party of eight gets bumped in favor of some bigger party. We left."

  • "Pita is made in house & is sooooo good. Server was so nice & offered to bring lettuce slices to dip since I don't eat gluten. Definitely the best babagonoush! Prefer it over Open Sesame for sure!"

  • "The restaurant does not actually take Open Table reservations. We had to wait 30 mins., because they said they do not get online reservations."
