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.

The food is always so good - consistent. The food came out quickly. Was able to have a taste of the rose before I committed. Great service, reasonably priced, great experience.

The food here is always so fresh and tasty 😋 and I love that they offer gluten-free options 👍. The staff are attentive and caring and I love the atmosphere but feels very Moroccan.

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.

I love Nuba, but this time we went and our server was too busy for us. I think they may have been short staffed, but we were without water for a very long time.

Lunchtime at Nuba was lovely, the tables were well physically distanced so it felt comfortable and safe. The staff were very attentive and friendly. There was a great playlist which provided a nice atmosphere for an afternoon visit. Delicious food. I would highly recommend Nuba!

A very serious problem: The wait staff did not wear their masks correctly. The mask must cover the nose as well as the mouth. As diners we were seated but the wait staff was standing. This meant that all exhalations through the exposed nose were in a perfect position to reach us, and we may have been infected. Remember that some people may be asymptomatic but may still spread the virus. A MASK IS NOT AN ACCESSORY. Because of this, we have decided not to return to Nuba until or unless this problem is corrected.

Good but ultimately mediocre food. We had the large platter which gave us a taste of everything. The baba ghanouj was very good, nice and smokey. The cauliflower with tahini was overcooked and there was very little tahini. The spicy prawns were good.

Everything was great. We were looking forward to the lamb chops in the platter section but it wasn’t in the menu. Hopefully they will put it back! Otherwise the food was delicious as usual. My favorite was the potato and hummus.

Went here for my 4 year wedding anniversary during Covid with the wife and I. The budget I had in mind was $100 for drinks, appetizer, and meals along with Vegan options for the wife. I was under budget with everything included which is a win. Only 60-70 bucks which included tip.

The social distancing measures were taken very seriously which gave me ease of mind. The food and service was excellent. I would return here for sure on another big occasion.

The only thing I would suggest is that the restaurant change the horrible carpeted old school looking fabric design on the wall where I was sitting. Just my opinion. Other than that, excellent experience.
