The food is simply outstanding at this Mediterranean restaurant. Our most recent visit was for lunch and the specials made it a bargain as well. Don’t miss this restaurant.

Always very good - a varied menu that offers things you don't get at a lot of restaurants

If it's your thing, it's a great place to get numerous appetizers to share with a group

Accent was simply delicious and more than I could ever expect. We have high standards in Israeli food and in general, and this place outdid itself. Perfect service, hand-made dishes left us wanting to come back whether for dinner or brunch. AMAZING PLACE!!!!!!

Worst service I’ve had in NYC. It took 1.5 hrs to get pasta and when it came, there was a hair in my pasta…never coming back

Food was terrific and the service was gracious and attentive. A slight miscommunication occurred, but was probably due to us.

A great place for sure!

Delicious!! We had a great experience with a super server. Had excellent hummus and then chicken schnitzel. The presentation of both was original with many condiments and sauces to add to the already delicious recipe.

First Time trying this new neighborhood mediterranean restaurant.
Menu: good selection
Food: very good quality, but SMALL portions for the price (the ceviche had virtually no fish!), the Branzino was very nice, just too small.
Ambience: they have done a very nice job.
Service: friendly but deathly SLOW (we sat at the bar). It really took away from the experience.
If they can correct the small portions and slow service this place could be very good and a regular spot.

Service was poor. The servers did not communicate and we had numerous servers double cross one another in serving our table.
