  • Not what it once was

    Regrettably, food not of the standard it once was. Tomatoes had absolutely no flavour and they are currently in season. No excuse for this. Some of the meat was on the tough side. Nicely served, attentive service. Noise level makes conversation exceedingly difficult.

    I have been to Tabule many times and am never disappointed. Staff is friendly, food is amazing! I have a dairy allergy and they are always able to help me out food option wise. Cool decor and always busy! When we don't know where to take guests to eat or are looking for a healthy good hot meal...we go here.

    The mezze dishes are delicious, varied and well presented. As a group of four we managed to order several mezze dishes added a few skewers and made a meal out of this. Great combination and very varied. The service was attentive, fast, with lots of smiles. Our waitress Reina (sp?) was very helpful, attentive and made us feel welcome with her big smiles.

    I've been to this restaurant many times, and always enjoyed it. My friend was coming for the first time. We were offered a seat inside or on the patio; we chose outside because it was a lovely evening. Our waiter was pleasant but ignored us for much of the meal. My friend needed time with the menu, he came back once, and then disappeared. We had to ask the staff to find him. That was a theme throughout the meal. I had to go inside to ask for salt and pepper; it came as I finishing my last bite. There was a belly dancer dancing in the restaurant. She never came out to the patio. The maitre d' never told us that there would be dancing. He should have advised us to eat inside so that we could enjoy the entertainment. We felt cheated.

    <3 Always order the lentil soup! You will never be sad ever again, it is so smooth and delicious... We are not real foodies, but my boyfriend and I enjoyed the salad very much even though we don't like salad usually. And the water jugs are fascinating. *w* Definitely adds to the experience. The only problem we had was that we had to move outside because something in the air inside the restaurant made all our eyes sting (maybe some kind of spice?), but once we were outside we were okay again and able to enjoy the food. Don't let that ruin your experience though, just try to go at a time when you can snag an outdoor seat if that happens! It is worth it.

    I was happy to find Tabule as I missed Lebanese food. The food was great. We ordered Kufta banaduri and beef kabab. I took one star down because the fatush salad was good but not great. It only had 3 ingredients instead of 10. The dressing was good, but the bread was not fried - I guess more healthy! I would definitely go back again.

    Suggested Tabule to co-workers for Summerlicious, not knowing anything about the restaurant except it served Mediterranean food & where it was located. Loved it! From the price, to the food, to the serving sizes, to the water pitcher and how it was poured, to the Turkish coffee...so relieved my co-workers loved it, too! I will definitely go back, but w/my husband this time.

    We went here for Summerlicious. Our reservation was for 12 noon. We arrived before 12 and were asked to leave and come back when the restaurant was open, since they were cleaning, which I thought was not very friendly of their staff. The food was good, portion sizes were quite large but the staff were not on top of special requests. I had booked this through open table and have informed them about my allergies, but I had to explain it again upon arrival. Also, we did not get the 100 point on open table after dining here, because the server did not bother to check that we made a reservation online. Overall, the service was poor.

    Went to Tabule for the first time with 2 friends. We each ordered different items from the Summerlicious menu. From the falafels, to the dips, to the kebobs and dessert...nothing went wrong. The falafels were probably one of the best I've ever had. They were super crispy and had great flavour to them. The chicken kebobs were moist and the grilled veggies and rice were well seasoned. Our waitors were attentive and efficient. We went on a Saturday and there were belly dancers and other entertainers for a brief period of time. Overall, I don't have anything really bad to say about Tabule and I will definitely be returning to this restaurant.

    As a lebanese woman in Canada, I rarely find truly GOOD Lebanese food, and Tabule restaurant serves just that. Good food. The experience was better than the food itself, in my opinion. I liked being surrounded by classier arabs and the items on the menu definitely brought back some feelings from across the ocean. The food itself was ok, nothing really WOW, but decent. For the price, I wouldn't eat there on a regular basis, but for those days when you feel like kind of reliving your childhood, it's a decent place.

    The place is all about atmosphere, so it was disappointing to be the one facing a wall in the corner. I could hear a room full of patrons behind me having a great time, but I had to turn uncomfortably to see and experience what was going on. It's a great place, but I think they could reorganize some of the tables a bit to make it more engaging for everyone.

    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.

    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.
