  • "Food and service were great. Not sure why we were seated next to the only other occupied table in the restaurant. Oh, and that table had two small children with their parents?"

  • "Food is always so fresh and delicious....always consistently great service. We love everything that we have ever ordered....can't say enough good things about this restaurant....their new addition on Queen Street is so much fun...very lively, and full of energy. The food at either restaurant is consistenly perfect....and they are always busy...good to have a reservation. Love, love, love this restaurant! we love the upbeat, young decor amd windows that open up to the trendy Leslieville Queen St. area. We find the main courses that include meat, rice, grilled veggies is quite filling after having hummus, taboule salad and so share a main course (especially love the kefta banadura and cauliflower salad...Amazing!"

  • "The best falafel I've had in North America, the fried cauliflower was also to die for. The main courses did not quite live up to the appetizers' promise, but still were quite good. Our server was harried but cheerful, the place was packed. All in all, a very good experience."

  • "We have been coming to Tabule since it first opened on queen street a couple of years ago. The food is delicious, original and impeccable. The cocktails are completely original using ingredients like fresh mint and jalub - betcha can't drink just one! Try the Habibi. We have never had dessert as we always fill up on mains and shared appetizers. Love this place!"

  • "I've been to this location three times and it doesn't disappoint. Fresh dips, great salads, delicious apps. The skewers are cooked well and the rice is flavorful. And Monday and Tuesdays are BYOW and no corkage!"

  • "It is the second time in a week that I have eaten at Tabule on Queen Street The food is fantastic, and the staff is friendly, informative, and fast. Our only small complaint is the noise level is quite high since lots of babies were present, and the train speeds right by the restaurant! I would still go back tomorrow if I had a chance!"

  • "Whether it's a quick, delicious lunch, a celebratory dinner or a spontaneous drink at the bar during a thunder storm, Taboule On Queen feels like a well-established neighbourhood secret. The staff are always professional and personable. The food is exceptional. Our current fave is the flash-fried cauliflower with tahini. The service is impeccable. As a gluten and dairy-free diner, it's one of my favourite restaurants in Toronto. We recently experienced the patio for the first time. Spacious and beautifully designed, it's a wonderful addition to the Taboule experience. Oh, and they serve the creamiest, most delicious hummus I've ever tasted. The fact that there's gluten-free pita to go with it? The best."

  • "Second visit in a week. Loved it so much last week needed to come back and show it off to other friends. Food is so good - from appetizers through to mains. Always easy to share too. And the Monday corkcage free - bring your own wine just tops it all off."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Great food and plenty of it! The restaurant itself is really nicely decorated and has a lovely atmosphere. We shared the mezze platter to start and we were almost full afterwards, the entrees were also a good size and very tasty. Will definitely be back!"

  • "I went with my family (3 adults, 2 kids under 10). The food was delicious and very authentic. I would recommend Tabule to anyone who enjoys Mediterranean food."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The patio is wonderful if you are seated at tables with chairs with backs. Our group was seated at a picnic style table with benches which were not very comfortable at all. Beverage menu 4 different mojitos and several martinis. Appetizer sampler. Hummus was delicious, the tabule was the best I've ever had, the appetizer pickles are amazing. The garlic shrimp was very flavourful. Lamb chops are better than the kabobs. Service was slow as there was a large table of hipsters ordering at the same time as our group. When we left the restaurant, it was really hopping inside and looked like a lot of fun!!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Service was superb even tho it was a busy night! Pita was brought continuously to our table without having to ask. Water was filled whenever glasses were empty. Food was delicious! Meat was cooked to perfection and super moist! Portion was generous! I ordered the eggplant entree and it was delicious! Loved the brown rice and lentils! Will definitely go back!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Brought my family here for dinner and the food was fresh and tasty. Service was excellent. They have a patio out back which is first-come, first-served and was very busy, but we were able to get the table right at the front with a big window that opens on to the street. Everyone enjoyed! Only downside was the sorbet which my brother had and said was a little flavourless."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I have been here 3 times now and enjoyed it each and every time. I love the vibe (read: noise) because it feels like everyone is having fun! I love the dips and the beautiful drinks. I keep having the shrimp (the grilled is slightly better than the garlic). will have to branch out and try something else next time. But there will be a next time."

  • "Excellent layers of flavour. You have to try the cauliflower"

  • " They take great care in the quality of their food. Just superb tastes!"

  • "It's our third visit and the food has been consistent. But the last two times the service has been uneven with late service or non-service from the bar and mains delivered at widely different times. These last two visits have been at times when the restaurant wasn't full - i.e., it wasn't mid-evening Saturday or Sunday night. I hope they get the growing pains worked out, if that's what it is. The restaurant is great fun otherwise."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Excellent food and great service. They have belly dancing on Saturday nights. It is not a quiet restaurant, the noise level is very high. We did enjoy it and will go back."

  • "The food was Amazing and great options for vegetarian and gluten free dietary restrictions. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Food is as yummy as ever and must be true to it's origins cause it reminds me of Nana's cooking! Service was a bit spotty only because the patio was newly opened."

  • "My sister and I both have celiac disease. We chose Tabule for its gluten-free prix-fixe menu during the Gluten Freedom promotion. It was great to have middle eastern food without worries about gluten. The food was delicious. I haven't had falafel in a couple of years now, and they were perfect..."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "I have been here twice, and really wanted to like this place, but Tabule disappoints. The meat is tough and inadequately seasoned. Appetizers are bland, the bread isn't soft...and service seems to vary depending on the attractiveness and obvious wealth of the clientele. Sigh"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Great middle-eastern food at a really affordable price point. Great service from a former O&B superstar. You're gonna love it !"

  • "I was at the restaurant on a Tuesday night which is one of their byob evenings so I expected it to be busy which it was. The food is very good and the helpings are generous. The tables are rather close together so you can hear the conversations of the people at the next table and it is extremely noisy overall. I found the service to be a little distracted and when we asked for a refil of sauce it never did arrive. I have always had very good service at the restaurant so was a little disappointed in the service this time. I think I will stick to lunch time as it's less busy and the service is better."

  • "we've been to Taboule a number of times, this was the first time with kids (two - six and four). Despite managing to spill our drinks (kids) all over the table and in general making a nuisance - they were gracious, attentive and generally great. The food is great (I was born in Israel, this IS my food), the atmosphere is busy, loud and happy, the bar produces great cocktails to go along with the food and in general if you can get a table this is a good bet for a fun evening. "

  • "I live in Leslieville and have passed by this restaurant countless times on my way to work or back home - each time making a mental note to give it a try. I finally did this past Monday with a couple of my best friends (their 4 month old babies in tow). I don’t necessarily recommend bringing your baby here, but the restaurant did accommodate us beautifully (I had mentioned the babes when I made my reservation). Speaking of reservations, to be on the safe side I would suggest making one as the place seems to be busy all the time. Which is a good sign! Some highlights of my visit... the food was delicious, the menu was full of very tempting offerings (I'm going back soon to try other dishes), beautifully designed (unique, hip, comfortable). "

  • "HOW CAN COZY BE RELATED TO PROVOCATIVE??? TABULE MAKES THOSE TWO WORDS SYNONYMOUS. IT IS A GEM OF A NEIGHBORHOOD RESTAURANT THAT PROVIDES GREAT FOOD AND QUALITY SERVICE. THE BYOB MONDAYS SHOULD REALLY BE A HIT!!!"

  • "Our party of four had a great evening.One of the owners(Diana)who had met me previously came over to our table at the start of the evening to say hello and introduce herself to the other guests.She then took our order for drinks. My three friends had not been to the restaurant before.They commented on how much they liked the food(including the appetizers) and how inexensive the evening was considering the fact that we had a round of drinks,appetizers,the main course,a bottle of wine,two desserts and coffee and tea."

  • "WE took two Lebanese-Candians out to Tabule and were all delighted with the really first class food, best High End Middle Eastern in town with Halal meats warm efficient friendly service and a great belly dancer. The only complaint is noise level. A conversation has to be shouted across the table. Exhausting!"

  • "We had a great time at Tabule. The staff was very nice to us even though we got confused with our reservations and showed up late. Great food, great place and great service. Will certainly go back in a near future."
