    Service was absolutely fantastic, everyone went out of their way to take care of us. The food however was not so great. We had the wedge salad and it was drowning in runny dressing. The Steak Frittes appeared to be an unappetizing preformed pc of meat - although, the larger of the two pieces was cooked exactly as ordered, the smaller piece was overcooked, dry and leathery. The waffle fries tasted like frozen oreida and not in a good way!!! The green beans were covered in oil and that was all you tasted. My husband had the Lamb shank and it was nothing memorable. We split a cheese plate and besides the service, it was the only shining star of the meal. Will not go back for dinner but may give it another shot for appetizers and drinks.

    Everything was good, but nothing was special. They advertise as a "Mediterranean" restaurant, but most of the menu is old-fashioned "Continental" cuisine that you might have found in the 50s. They were out of the dessert we ordered, then turned out to be out of our second choice as well. Service was friendly and helpful, but not as polished as it should be at an upscale place. Not cheap, but not overpriced, either. The atmosphere is lovely, and it's quiet enough that you can actually converse, a big plus for us. It's not going to the top of our list, but is a good choice for people with relatively conservative tastes, especially when you want someplace quiet and a bit romantic.

    Met my friend here for dinner, she was running late, but never did I feel uncomfortable from the staff about this! They gave me a table I preferred. The salmon and vegetables were SO good, as was the greek salad. 2 glasses of Angeline Chardonnay were good. Very friendly, warm, great waitress. And, a man who works there, maybe the manager, came by once or twice (we were there 3 hours!!!) and very quick and friendly asked how we were. Wonderful experience, thank you!

    Very lovely, romantic spot. Food was very good but I was a little shocked at the expensive $12 glass of house wine I was served. The band duo provided very easy listening and nicely intergrated with the small crowd in the bar area. Would I go back? Yes but would be more careful in my wine selection.

Living over an hour away in Lexington, we drove to Louisville for shopping and had never dined here before, but were very impressed and will certainly be back. Thank you Stevie for the great food/drink selection advise and friendly service!

The lounge area is separated from the dining room but seen through glass windows: a friend told us to book on the lounge side because the entertainers are terrific. We will return!

    Our evening at Majid's was nice but not great. We began with the escargot appetizer, and it was not bad but not too flavorful The Greek salads were quite nice. I had the lamb shank for an entree and my companion had the New York Strip. Again, they were good, but for the prices at Majid's, I wanted better than good. The dessert was the worst part of the meal. We split a piece of Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie. It was tiny and tasteless and quite stale. Not the right way to end a meal. The woman who met us and seated us did not smile the entire evening, but our server was just fine.

    My husband loved the Lamb Shank. I had the Seafood Stew but it was too spicey for my taste so did not enjoy it. Quite busy on a Thursday evening. Food took quite a while after ordering. Waiter was friendly. Bread & cheese dipping sauce very good. Generous wine pour. Tiramisu dessert did not appear to be "homemade" - more like Costco. Live music coming from bar was enjoyable.

    Our reaction to Majid's was so-so. Probably won't go back. But, that's not to say it doesn't have some pluses. We peeked in to the bar which is lovely, had nice jazzy live music playing not too loudly, and a good looking bar menu. We hear that this is a hot spot for the late 20's/early 30's crowd. We ate on the dining side. At 6:30 in the evening (they open around 5:00 I think), they were out of the veggie kabobs. Really? Everyone liked their entree - the salmon, the chicken, the ribeye and the night's special of grouper. The sides were: mashed potatoes and winter squash, roasted potato, and green beans. Two of our party requested green beans only and still got the mashed potatoes. Also, potatoes and potatoes?

The service was excellent, the dishes we ordered we timed just right for a good conversation, and everything we tasted was delicious. Majid himself stopped by to say hello, and it was a nice touch. I will definitely come back!

    Had a reservation at 8 p.m. Arrived and was told that the restaurant was out of virtually every entree on the menu and every signature dish. Ordered an appetizer while we tried to figure out if there was anything worth ordering for dinner. About 10 minutes later, our waiter came by and said they were also out of the appetizer. We left. Wildly disappointed.

    Very pretty dining spot. Bar scene was hopping. We chose to sit in the dining area. After taking our drink orders we had to wait 30 minutes for our barely apologetic waitress to reappear with even a crumb of bread much less a libation. Service plodded on. Dinner finally arrived after over an hour and fifteen minutes. The food was great. I think the owner was embarrassed and did offer apologies. Comping part of the meal would have been nice. Don't think we'll be back.
