Chef Partner Ari Bokovza, most recently of Claudette, and who is of Israeli heritage, feels that the Mezze, and small plates selections are the soul of the restaurant with items such as Sasso Chicken Liver with mustard seeds, date syrup, crispy shallot and baharat; Roasted Beets with horseradish yogurt, fried chickpeas, and crispy beef tongue; Charred Eggplant with buttermilk vinaigrette, tomato jam, and shabazi bread crumbs, and Shishbarak: Lebanese mushroom filled dumplings, with warm yogurt, pine nuts, and spicy herb sauce. Kubaneh, and Jerusalem Bagel are homemade, and there is a section of creative salads and entrees including Levantine “Caesar” with tahini anchovy dressing, parmesan, fried chick peas, toasted sesame, and anchovy tempura; Harissa BBQ Chicken with potato sumac puree, local greens, and Whole Roasted Branzino cooked over charcoal, with preserved lemon butter, and celery root.

    As always this restaurant was amazing. The staff are all excellent, fully focused, smiling and knowledgable. The restaurant itself is so pretty, and lots of space between tables so no feeling of being crammed in. And finally the food - just perfect, delicious, inventive and top class. We had the restaurant week menu which was fab.

    My wife and I are visiting from NYC. I was so looking forward to a nice dinner. Ordered the crispy lamb shank. Waited one hour for our dinner. The lamb was charred fat around minimal meat and mostly bone. The meat was tough (not tender as it should be) clearly not slow roasted. My wifes vegetable tagine dish was tiny. We were so disappointed.

    Overall, it was a nice dining experience. However, the steak kabob was virtually all fat. The other dishes, primarily the apps and starters were quite wood.

    This was our fourth visit to Dagon and our first time for dinner. The mezze were outstanding as usual, including the carrots and eggplant dip, and we love the kubeneh in particular. The Caesar salad was excellent. We tried two fish dishes for the first time and liked the branzino and the sea bass. The desserts were wonderful: the chocolate cake and the silan. We'll definitely be back!

    We ate outside for health reasons - even though it was very hot outside. Each outdoor table had a fan which really helped make it pleasant. The food is always wonderful. We shared the hummus dish among 3 people. My sister and I shared the vegetable tagine - excellent. My husband had a very good fish dish. All in all a nice dinner!

    Disappointed that the food we had was not up to par (I ordered the steak kabob, which at $50 was one of the pricier items on the menu and it was so tough I could barely cut it with a steak knife). The flatbread my wife tried was "just ok". The music was so loud that we couldn't hold a conversation. All in all, not worth the cost.

    If you are looking for great ambience with excellent food and wait staff, you must try chef Ari's Mediterranean/Israeli inspired restaurant. Every dish we had was delicious --from appetizers to entrees to desserts. I would definitely go back again.

    Food was excellent. Noise level was ridiculously high. Once we placed our order, we were ignored by our wait staff with exceptional long waits in between our meals. We were a table of 2 and wait staff were more focused on larger tables. Will likely only order in, or sit at the bar next time, as the food was very good.

    Meh. It was irritating to eat here tonight. From the hostess that would not seat me in a virtually empty restaurant until my other party arrived, to the server that forgot about us for huge gaps of time to the tiny food - big bowl, tablespoon of hummus? What?

    We sat outside because indoors is just too loud. And alas it was a bit hot. Food was generally good. But service outside was spotty. Cold mezzo arrived after hot food when we said all at once and my guest got cold coffee.

    No attention paid after our order was placed. Our server disappeared and we could not get attention, staff does not make eye contact and runs by quickly. We could not order dessert for 10 minutes and had to chase after someone to pay our bill. Dessert was great, the rest of the meal was overall good however the steak was fatty and tough and the bread was soggy inside. Wed love ti try again but only if the restaurant is aware of our experience.

    Our server really guided us on what to order since this was our first visit to DAGON. He(Cameron) listened to our likes & asked us about food allergies & then gave us his suggestions. A standout on the dessert offerings was "SILAN", If Cameron hadn't explained this dessert to us, I know on my own I would have never ordered it.

    We were a bit disappointed all around. The food was good but not as outstanding as we were expecting, and because it was so busy our waiter disappeared for long stretches without checking in on us. Food came before drinks that were orders earlier. For the money, I would have expected more.

    The restaurant was packed and lively and the staff were friendly. I ordered from the Restaurant Week menu and it was delicious - the hummus with bread was huge, the spiced cod was perfectly cooked and the labneh cheesecake was to die for (that pecan crust was the best thing ever). The only negative I have to say was the slow service but they were extremely busy so I get it. I would definitely go back.
