We had the muhamara spread and hummus with their pita bread! The freshly made pita served hot alongside the spreads is killer! It tasted amazing! It is by far the best I’ve ever had! For our entree, we shared with our group the Duck Tangine (serves about 3-4 people). If you love duck, this is a must try! The flavor and taste was outstanding! And the service we received from our server Karl was great! We will definitely be back again!

We were very impressed by this new restaurant. Of course we had heard great things about it. The service was amazing! Food was delicious. We tried so many small plates & we can’t wait to go back. Hummus with leaks & hummus with cauliflower were great, baba ganoush, falafel balls, Israeli salad, roasted carrots lamb kafta were delish! Pickles with beets & green tomatoes were good. Octopus was very tasty. We had both regular & gluten feee pita. So yummy! The sangria was delicious & they had a good beer selection. We didn’t get to try any desserts but they looked good.

Energetic happy hour vibe with great outdoor seating and lovely decor inside. We grazed - hummus with leeks, baba ghanoush, pickles, olives, fried cauliflower and amazing fresh-baked pita to scoop it all up, with attentive, friendly people bringing us each beautifully presented dish. The duck Tagine is not to be missed. Very special place with a fun vibe and my favorite fresh food. It just feels good!

Interesting foods which I’ve haven’t tried before. Started off with mussels in arak, Swiss chard, etc. very tasted broth. Had the lebnah which was a yogurt, lemon, ash salt dip with pita. Then had the whole fish, fed about two people. It was in a tomato based base, tasty! For dessert had the milk and honey, a pancotta deconstructed with honey crumbles. Overall a must try! Thanks!

Food is great! Extra charges for pita bread was a little rough, especially for the 3rd one we didn’t order... Went on a Thursday night and the place was so loud it was hard to hold a conversation with out table of four.

Fresh Pita and great hummous! Baba Ganoush was very good although the eggplant was not charred as in most dishes of this type. The vegetable "tagine" was oversalted and had a strange mix of veggies/fruits. It wasn't even cooked in the clay tagine pot that it was presented in. I wouldn't bother ordering it again. Better to stick with the small plates.
Overall, a good experience

Maybe I am getting old and cynical but I just do not see what was so special about this restaurant. The pita was a bit too doughy. Overpriced for the portions ( I looked at the $34 tagine at the table next to us which was when we opted to stick to small plates) and trendy drinks for way too much money. The server was very nice but my husband accidentally knocked his drink over she did not offer to replace it. I would possibly go back to give it another try but as someone who has lived in the middle east and visited recently this is the american version of that cuisine and is it me or is anyone else tired of paying high prices for small plates at restaurants that are good at promotion and location?

We had the best time here! Delicious food and reasonable prices which is hard to find lately. Four of us shared the hummus (with fresh wood fired pita!), Israeli salad, lamb kofte, wood roasted carrots and duck tagine feast. Everything was so good and brought it in a timely matter. They have a great happy hour, too. Check this place out!!

The people working there are wonderful. I asked for the lamb to be well done but it came back pink so I didn’t eat it. The hummus was very good. Had to scream at my friend sitting two feet from me to be heard. Not a place to catch up with a friend as it is extremely noisy. Go early when it isn’t as busy.

Charging for pita bread is not appropriate.
The food was good, particularly the root vegetable dish. Easily served 4.
Even through restaurant was not full, had to ask for extra pita bread 3 times to different waiters.
Drink order did not arrive, and had to ask waiter for it once dinner arrived.
But fun atmosphere and good food.

Beautiful build out and friendly bar staff. Our particular waitress was rather poor and the food was honestly a little disappointing. And I love Israeli food a lot and eat it often. But their pita was truly wonderful. Perhaps they’ll work out the rest of their menu as time goes on.
