    Showed up for reservation and got a table on the patio which was empty despite it being a lovely night. We ordered drinks and appetizers advising waiter we would order mains after we had more time to look at the menu. After delivering our drinks and the appetizers, the waiter failed to show up to get our follow-up order. After waiting for 45 minutes with nothing to left to drink, I went inside and tracked him down and he said "sorry I didn't think you wanted to order entrees". Really? Absolutely appalling service and while not true to form, especially when owner is present, after being a frequent patron of this restaurant since it opened, I will definitely reconsider visiting Tabule again. Hugely disappointed.

    Tabule continues to be a great place to go with friends for dinner. The food is very good with lots of choices to share. We always start with the sharing platter. The service is very friendly and for a busy spot, we never feel rushed. We keep going back because it is very dependable

    The food at Tabule is always great. Their chicken is so completely delicious. We sat on the patio this time though and were a bit neglected by the servers. They took really long to take our order, forgot our beers and long with the cheque.

    I stumbled upon this restaurant during Gluten Freedom Week (the prix fixe menu). My SO ordered the combination plate, kefta banadura, and pistachio gelato, and I ordered the falafel salad, salmon kebab, and orange blossom gelato and we received a basket of gluten-free laffa flat bread. All of it was so tasty, and by far, best falafel I ever had! I could live my days being fat and happy with the flat bread, hummus, falafel alone. The service was fine, not incredibly memorable or outstanding. The restaurant atmosphere is nice and quaint, very clean. I definitely have plans to return in the future, multiple times!

    I love the atmosphere of Taboule. The music makes me relax immediately. I am gluten-free and dairy-free and appreciate a restaurant that has seriously considered people with allergies when choosing their menu. The wait-staff are friendly, patient and really intent on making your meal one to remember. The babaganuj is divine, and being able to eat it with gluten-free laffa is a dream come true. I especially love the salmon kebabs with mujaddara and grilled vegetables. I intend to come back to Taboule again and again. It has become my favourite restaurant.

    Tabule has fabulous food that is great for sharing. I went with some girl friends and we all shared a bunch of different plates. Their appetizers are the best. The dips, the falafel, the pita... all good. The Labni and Babaganoush are my favorite. In the summer their is a good sized patio but it fills up rather quickly.

    Tabule came highly recommended and my husband and I had the best Middle Eastern food we've ever eaten. The presentation, quality and taste of the food was excellent. Our waiter, Stan, was attentive, gave great suggestions, and took very good care of us. Even the leftovers which we took home were packaged with care! We look forward to visiting again and will definitely pass on the high praise to our friends and colleagues.

    Although it was a girl's night out, we chose this place over the Leslieville location due to the ambiance. It was a great location on Yonge, easy to get to. There's parking on the side streets- one hr parking before 6pm. Our reservation was for 6 so it was ok to park after that. The service was quick and attentive. We started with a cocktail-nice but nothing special really. Then we carried on with a bottle of wine. We had a platter of dips- very tasty and enjoyable. The place filled up very quickly and became lively, in true Yonge and Eg style. Two of us had the lamb kebab platter- great portions ( too much even, since we had the dips) -the lamb had nice flavour on a bed of rice and veggies. No dessert since we were full at this point.

    The food was excellent. At the time we went, the server seemed to be quite busy with other tables. She forgot our order of wine and never did bring it to us. Also, we had asked for separate cheques and she forgot this as well. She was friendly and pleasant but not as attentive as she seemed too busy.

    We took a chance on finding a place that was equal travelling distance for all of us and we settled on Tabule. A reservation is definitely recommended and we did reserve for our dining. The service, the food, the atmosphere worked together very well. It did not take long for our selections to arrive at our table once we made our choices. The menu will have something for everyone and the flavours of everything we chose was very good. Tabule is somewhere we will come again, AND it is highly recommended.

    Belly Dancing performance was great, energetic and livened up the atmosphere. The food was well-presented and the service was wonderful. Loved how even pouring water was an art! Great fun happy atmosphere. A bit noisy at times, and maybe the lighting could have been brighter, but overall, a good place to go back to again for another group or intimate dinner.

    Dined on 2/16/2014
    We came here for my birthday dinner and right away knew the service would be awful. My pregnant sister waited at the door for 10 minutes before anyone came to seat her. We waited half an hour before anyone came to take our order. He asked us what we wanted abruptly and we asked what kind of beer they had. He rudely told us to look at the drink list at which point we informed him we never received one. As soon as he handed it to us he assumed we'd be ready to order so it was really awkward and uncomfortable. We order a starter and requested more flat bread but it never came. We got our dinner before the drinks came. We were sitting there after dinner for 30 minutes before our server finally came back with our bill.

The food was amazing. Service was slow as it was Valenine. For sure we will go there from time to time.

    This restaurant is close to my office so scores for convenience but it is also exceptionally good quality food and service. I have dined there. Three times now, twice at lunch and once for dinner. I have eaten inside in the winter and outside in the summer. The food and service quality has always been excellent.

    We just tried a batch of their food, ones that made it to their Wonterlicious menu. It's predominantly middle eastern cuisine. Being middle eastern myself I can say it wasn't bad but not top of the line either. The service was very poor, but perhaps due to so many people they had for Winterlicious.

    Our daughter took us to Tabule's a few years ago and the name and food stuck in our heads. So when my husband's birthday came around, I asked him where he would like to go for his special occasion and he said Tabule's. Our taste buds never forgot the great food we had at this restaurant. The service was good, our table nicely placed but tight to get into. That's because the place was hopping for a Tuesday in the middle of winter. Would we return?? You betcha!! One doesn't need a winterlicious or summerlicious to have this great tasting food.

    Being in love with the cuisine from my travels, my search for a great Middle-Eastern resto in the GTA goes on. I had a very pleasant evening at Tabule; overall the place has a very relaxed feel, which I like. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive to the needs of our party and didn't make us wait for drinks or food. As for the cuisine, things tasted good, but not spectacular. The ingredients seemed fresh and many of the familiar flavours were there, but nothing really popped for me. I ended up feeling like I'd eaten a healthy meal, which is one reason I love this kind of food. I'd probably go back, but I'll still be on the hunt for someplace that blows me away; this wasn't it.
