The food is always delicious. The service is warm , welcoming and always conscientious and accommodating of our dietary needs. Fantastic staff!!
Bustan is my favorite spot on the UWS.
The couscous impressed even my Tunisian-ancestry companion. Chraime was delicious while resisting the tendency of such a dish to be too spicy . Our waitress was very helpful and eager to assist. We had an early dinner and the place really changed from very quiet to coming alive towards the more accepted dinner time.
Charming place, all great! Im going back for more!
Great food, service was very attentive, enjoyed the evening.
This was the first time I have been back since they reopened and it was better than ever. Everything we got was delicious; from the Smoke & Fire cocktails, roasted cauliflower, burrata and beets, and the grilled branzino. Excellent service.
So we are regulars and after last night maybe a long time till we come back. We had a table reserved for 7:45 and when we get there they place in the back room where we sat next to a large party of over 20 ladies who had a party and let’s say the noise was loud. The staff was less then helpful And had an attitude. When I pointed out to hostess 2 other viable tables in the front she had nothing but indifference. After about 20 minutes in the party room we finally got moved to the table I pointed out. Indifference and poor attitude is unacceptable in a city filled with great resultant.
Food is great. Ambiance very pleasant. The only 'negative' is that it is a bit pricey. Otherwise, pretty much assured of a great meal!
I love this restaurant. I love everything about this place.
The lamb kebab is my favorite by far! But everything is soooo tasty!
It’s great for a dinner with friends, or a date, or a business meal. Just PERFECT!
Bustan is an ideal neighborhood restaurant--unpretentious, interesting and good food, friendly ambiance. The noise level is a problem, but there are varied seating arrangements that can mitigate it a bit. We have enjoyed our meals there.
We sat outside on New Year’s eve and though their were space heaters it was a bit chilly
Food is a modern take on Middle Eastern/Mediterranean cuisine. Everything we ate was tasty. Highly recommend the couscous.p
The ambiance was nice. The seating was quite cozy for our group of 6. It may be a better spot for a smaller group or for a date; however, there is more seating in back that we didn’t see. Unfortunately, our waitress was kind of rude and unpleasant. She would make suggestions and acted annoyed if we didn’t take them, but maybe she was just having a bad day. The food was very good, and my fiancé and I would consider going back just the two of us.
Bustan is back and better than ever!
My family enjoyed a festive Christmas Eve dinner on the heated garden patio. The food, atmosphere and service were all excellent.
Second time we have been here and food was better than ever. Staff was very attentive. Ambiance was nice, but it was a little hot in the restaurant. I would highly recommend and would definitely go back again.
I've been coming to Bustan since day 1. A few things bothered me this time. 1) when I asked the server what Arak was, she responded "if you don't know what it is, you probably wouldn't like it" - enough said 2) when did the cauliflower dish shrink to ridiculously small portion and double in price? 3) food was warm, not hot, just warm. I hope the restaurant heeds this constructive criticism
We felt the food was underwhelming. Havent been there in a while but the previous menu was better The couscous tagine needs to be spruced up
One of my favorite restaurants in NYC!
A most enjoyable dining experience that we look forward to doing again
Excellent all around!
Wow, everything was delicious, and the service was excellent!
Always enjoy Bustan. Interesting mix of tastes. The menu is small enough to be manageable, but varied enough to stay interesting. And the bartender makes some great signature cocktails. (Dining at the bar is particularly fun. On two occasions the bartender has concocted something experimental for me.)
Bustan is one of our Favorite restaurants. A cut above the rest, with innovative Mediterranean dishes, fresh ingredients, and wonderful ambience.
great food and great service. we have been to bustan a few times and it was always great.
It’s no surprise that this restaurant is rated as one of the hundred best neighborhood restaurants in New York City! It is undiscovered by most tourists and it’s quality remains super high. Care is taken with fresh ingredients, perfect seasonings, terrific preparation. We could not have been more pleased with our choice of dinners on Thanksgiving night. We will always include a dinner at Bustan when we travel to New York City!
Great place--wonderfully prepared food. Interesting menu. Great service........
Had a wonderful meal, great service, beautiful evening.
My friend and I had post show dinner at Bustan , even though it was a bit out of our way to get there . Totally worth it ! The food was amazing ! We literally licked our plates ! I personally was very impressed at the options of Israeli wines : low in sulfates , no headache , didn’t get me drunk at all ! Perfect ! The service was great too, very friendly and good humored . We had tuna as appetizer , Israeli salad ( yumm) , octopus and broiled bass . All was exceptional . Will definitely come back !
The food is outstanding, with a very original menu, within the Mediterranean cuisine segment. I had a fish covered with bread that was delicious. The service was really excellent. They offer a very original and great tasting beer from Israel.
Ambience is very nice with a music level that allowed easy conversation within our party.
amazing dinner loved it. great food great service great vibes
This was our second visit, after 3 years, for a date night. It was as delicious as we remembered! Highly recommend the lamb and the filet mignon for entrees- best filet we’ve had in a long time! Also must get the taboon with hummus and tzaziki to start. We were in a rush to catch a movie and the staff was very conscientious and helpful, but didn’t rush us! Love this place! Now one of our favorites on the UWS, so glad it’s still around; we will definitely be back.
Great food, service and ambiance!
This was my second visit to Bustan. I dined here for the first time a 2 months ago and I have been dying to come back ever since. Everything was outstanding. The ambiance is great, the food is so absolutely delicious, and the service is excellent. The spicy feta is a MUST. I will certainly be back again to try the other menu items.
The mattress D was rude and asked us to hurry up so they could turn the table for the next reservation.
Food is so excellent. Servants are charming.
Amazing dining experience
Excellence meal. Appetizers were so tasty. The chicken dish was a 10+, very moist and flavorful.
Wait or and staff professional.
My only suggestion is to have pillows for the bench/chairs against the wall as end up being much lower than person sitting in the chair.
So delicious and amazing service!
Love the food and the place. A tad too noisy, but that’s because I was trying to catch-up with long friends and it wasn’t easy to talk over the ambiance
Delicious and inventive. Very clean tasting and fresh vegetables; wonderful bread, pleasant staff.
Loud, but: I’m old.
