Waiter never put in our order, waited for over an hour for an appetizer and after we explained that we were upset and leaving they proceeded to take another 15 minutes to come back to the table. We gave up waiting on the bill and just left cash on the table and walked out.

Outstanding restaurant. We had the three Mezza dip tasting platter, brussel sprouts, lamb, blue cheese pitas and more. Everything was wonderful. Plenty of parking in the garage, just follow the signs. Will be going back.

Stunning environment with excellent service. Bottomless brunch menu was delicious and provided for great variety. Several us commented that we felt we were in a another country, due to the exotic food and atmosphere. I highly recommend the brunch, and you should definitely try everything. The flatbreads, sausages and parfait were stand out dishes. Special thanks to our servers, Mario and Kevin, who made this experience as great as it was. Excellent Service matters, and they proved it.

Wow. I usually do not write reviews as I usually do not have the time to add any value however in this instance, I've got to say -- one of the worst dining experiences of my life. I've dined a lot but never in my 30 plus years existence I've had a experience like this.

1) Terrible Service
2) Food was given to wrong table
3) Server spilled yogurt all over me and my friends
4) Servers were chatting it up with their friends WHILE holding on to our tables food that we've been waiting for a while
5) just a terrible experience overall.

Only redeeming quality was the food -- but the service is simply not worth it.

Service was excellent!! It was a little odd they had an entire bar section that was missing chairs and no one knew why. This also limited the available bar space during happy hour.

Over priced for Mediterranean tapas. For that price, I rather go somewhere much nicer. The ambiance was ok. We were initially sat at a small cramped table. We requested to move and we were moved to the second floor which lacked in ambiance and service. We had to ask for our server several times. Definitely won’t be returning.

It was an OK experience - as middle eastern food goes, there are much better options IMO in that area. The need to seat as many people as possible has resulted in a cramped environment. Was expecting a much better overall experience

Atmosphere is nothing like the one in D.C. Uncomfortable chairs and awful lighting. White wash walls. I might as well be in an airport in Orlando. Nothing like their DC restaurant by way of ambience. Food was delicious though. But was a bust for a romantic atmosphere for Valentine’s Day.

What a lovely find in the Tysons area. A really pretty space/fun atmosphere with very tasty, well-prepared food. Met up with two other couples who are great friends and to celebrate a birthday and a professional accomplishment. First time for all 6 of us, and we have vowed to come again!

Food was a hit or miss; couple of items were good like the octopus. The others tasted so bland and felt like the chef forgot to season it with salt.
The cocktails were good.
Service was horrible. The guy was courteous but forgot an item every time we ordered. I was never served water a second time. We had to ask for bread multiple times. He forgot at least three items we had to remind him to bring.

Service was very slow and some of the food was not what we ordered. My cocktail didn’t arrive at the same time as the wine and we had to ask about it. The fish and the chicken were overcooked. We did appreciate the valet parking.

Food was outstanding--we did the restaurant week menu and could've had it ten times over. Service left something to be desired. We'd been sitting for 20 minutes before anyone took our order. Wait staff was very friendly, but not very attentive (and we saw them repeatedly checking on tables around us)
