Food interesting and delicious. Loved the small plates, especially the mushroom dumplings and labneh. The cheesecake light and flavorful. Excellent service. Waiter helpful about ordering. Great evening. Nice outdoor setup.

This was our 2nd time at Dagon, and it was just as good once again. The small plates offer a great variety and the Jerusalem bread is a must have. Also, the Silan dessert is amazing - I think it's my favorite dessert I've had that isn't chocolate based!

Let me put it this way - I wish you had more stars to give Dagon. The food was delicious, head-cockingly inventive and beautifully presented. Special props to our server Ann who knew the menu inside out and gave great advice.

Three of us received our food at the same time. My husband waited 15 minutes for his entree and then it was wrong. They brought it back again and it was wrong again. He ordered the branzino filleted and they brought the whole fish. They sent out an additional appetizer as he waited for the food. I took a piece of plastic in it. They comped my husband's entree, but they should hav coped the entire meal. The food is great, but we were so disappointed in the service and how they handled all the issues

Three times in three weeks means this restaurant is a clear winner! The cuisine is wonderful, replete with fresh, delicious, and exotic flavors. Love the small plate/ Mediterranean concept, which is so relevant to how one eats today -- every last one is first-rate, but the chicken mousse is EPIC! Very attentive (but not intrusive) service, friendly wait staff, and a wine director and GM who are clearly pros. Bravo, and welcome to the UWS; you are sorely needed amd can't wait to dine again.

Love this place!! The BBQ Harissa Chicken was sooo good. The Fattoush Salad is an absolute must - It's really bright, herby, and fresh. Everything is delicious, you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Service was lovely as well. I look forward to going back again every time I leave!

Loud disco music background was not appreciated , made experience uncomfortable and conversation impossible. Decor was diner-like and at these pricesI would have expected something more refined.

Love this place. Finally, something other than (with a few exceptions) "same ol', same ol'" mediocrity on the UWS. While all the small plates are all excellent, the chicken mousse is epic. Grazing among a dozen or delicious dishes alfresco is the way I want to eat today -- and throughout the summer. Already been twice in two weeks; looking forward to going back!

Food is amazing, place ok (I know they are a good thing, but plastic dividers are not charming!). Actually, I think this is the perfect place to eat outside. Service was excellent until dessert when it slowed down but when dessert - silwan - arrived, it was well worth the wait and the extra moments probably worked to our advantage!

Loved Dagon! Loved our waiter, Hugo! Loved the food! The only problem will be when they reach full capacity, which they will as soon as it’s allowed, the noise level will go up. If you are noise averse, go early and enjoy the fabulous food without the din. It’s a fantastic addition to the neighborhood.

Great great Middle Eastern food! Great and safe and warm outdoor set up. Beautiful design inside - and out. Great service. It’s a gem - not just in the neighborhood, but for the city. I am so grateful to have a high quality, beautiful restaurant on the Upper West Side. We were in desperate need. I go all the time now.

Fantastic service and food. Large main portions for sharing. Had the lamb and dumplings plus I had the waiter pick out the mezze. Excellent choices.
The only bummer is they where out of goldstar beer. First world problems.
Thanks for a great evening

I wanted to be wowed. I wasn't. Deafening loud music indoors. Crispy lamb was small amounts of fatty lamb on big bones. Small plates were better.
