Good Vegetarian Options
Lebanese-style taverna in the same space as the legendary Greek restaurant Orestes. Nuba unfolds over multiple levels through small, low-ceilinged nooks, and up and down numerous staircases. Healthy, delicious Mediterranean food served with panache.

Service at the front door was professional, personal and quick. Ambience was great, romantic and nice lighting. Good space between tables (covid times). Our server was good but very robotic and formulaic, no personality involved. We had the La Grand Feast for two. The first course (tabouleh, hummus, baba, veggies) was the best part of the whole meal. The meat platter was overpriced IMO for what we got. The beef was too watery, the chicken was too dry but the prawns were delicious and the cauliflower was amazing. They had oysters as part of the dine-out menu but you could ONLY get them on the dine-out menu. I thought the point of dine-out was to allow customers to try your menu at a reasonable price..... why put something on the dine-out menu that you'll never be able to get if you go back?

We ordered the 3-course meal deal which included an appetizer, main and dessert. From the 2 choices given we chose: King oyster mushroom mezze (appetizer), Grilled bison flatiron (main); & Turkish coffee cheesecake which we complimented with a Turkish coffee. Delicious!

Not the greatest experience, a bit uncomfortable. Waiter seemed a bit uninterested with a bit of eyerolls, but the new waitress training with manager were very nice.

So many issues. Believe waiter was under influence of something. One of four meals was incorrect. Salmon dish was sent back due to being undercooked. Next piece that came had same issue. Overall very slow service and would not put high on list of restaurants to go back to. Vegan ice cream and cookies was excellent though! Stay safe.
