Had a wonderful meal here in the beautiful little dining room that (I think?) used to be La Provence. Service was great, the food was outstanding, the price was right, and it’s vibrant but not so loud that you can’t hear yourself talk. Would absolutely go back.

Staff was attentive and extremely friendly. Food was outstanding, Middle Eastern/Lebanese influence. Think warm spices, feta, za’atar, phyllo dough, lots of dips. Better off getting a bunch of mezzes than the mains. Will definitely be back not only because of the food but suck lovely service.

During a trip to New York we came across Shuka looking online for good restaurants in the soho area. Reviews could not have been more accurate. AMAZING food and great atmosphere. A very lucky find on our last night in New York. Would recommend to anyone looking to try a mix of med style food. Thanks for a lovely meal!

Great reviews aren’t always the truth. Trendy restaurant that leaves you saying not really. I don’t think I’ve ever left a restaurant hungry, but Shuka was a first. The whipped feta with pistachios was nice but just a few minutes later the main course arrived. Was it precooked and just heated?? Very very disappointed. $22 for a single skewer of steak and $18 for chicken. No sides, no vegetables other than a little mixed salad with no dressing. I will say the Waiter did suggest ordering a side, but $10-15 dollars for a veg side, seriously. Oh wine list, minimum $10-25 a glass.
Sorry, I guess village dining isn’t for us.

Innovative and tasty fare. The Lahmjoun (flatbread with a thin layer of ground beef and tomato) and smashed sweet potato appetizers were especially noteworthy. In fact, everything was excellent, except the duck breast kebab was under-cooked. Service was generally quick. I'd be happy to go there again.

We loved everything about the restaurant. The food, the ambiance, the service was great. We were a group of 10 and were treated very well. I will absolutely come here again and would suggest it to friends.

The crispy cauliflower and the pistachio feta spread were two of my favorites.

They even provided a battery charge unit at the table for everyone's cell phone.

However, there was no handicap accessible bathroom on the main level of the restaurant. This made dining with a senior citizen stressful. The staff was very receptive to our needs and were able to provide access to a bathroom at a neighboring restaurant, but it required moving a senior citizen with limited mobility down the street to use the bathroom. Just a thought.....

This is a favorite. Weather in its prior name Hundred Acres or currently as Shuka we have enjoyed every meal we have had here. This time we had brunch and found it to be just wonderfully exotic and interesting.

The staff is gracious and attentive from the moment you walk in to when you walk out, we were seated immediately, the restaurant is lovely so pretty although a bit noisy on a deservedly because it is so delicious busy Friday night, and table service was great but even better than all that was the food. Go with friends and share everything because there are dishes that should not be missed.
Must haves - crispy cauliflower perhaps the best cauliflower I have ever had and not just because it’s delicately fried to perfection but it is served on a bed of an amazing sauce; fried artichoke is often great and theirs is; spicy carrots meze perfectly seasoned; steak kebab so flavorful and tender; chicken shawarma a perfect combo of savory sweet flavorful; cauliflower entree hearty delicious...

Note to restaurant: SLOW. DOWN. We literally received all our 6 plates within 12 minutes. It felt like we couldn’t scarf it down fast enough and though most of it was delicious, we felt like we were being intensely rushed out. Waitress was lovely. Noise overwhelming (music could stand to be lowered). Hope it improves.
