    We had not been to Ethiopic in years. It was our son’s first experience eating Ethiopian cuisine and dining without utensils. He loved it. We were pleasantly surprised to find the food, warm, smiles, and great energy of Ethiopic has not changed since our last visit. We will be returning and keep it on regular rotation for dining out going forward.

    Interesting menu options for vegetarians and meat eaters. Our waitress kindly explained how to eat Ethiopian food with our hands. Messy but delicious.

    The vegetarian sampler with fish was fantastic. We also ordered the signatiure lamb tibs, which my partner enjoyed. We had plenty of leftovers, even though we ordered the sampler for one--big portions!

    Simply excellent. If you don’t like collard greens, you will love them here. I like collard greens. Their greens are out of this world good. Everything was fantastic. I will definitely go back.

    Food was good, noise level inside is very high, but the biggest problem was that a server spilled oil on me and did apologize but a single apology felt incommensurate with ruining my clothes.

    This was our first visit and we will definitely be back!! Food was amazing and the staff were very sweet. Our only complaint was the servers were slow to check on us. We visited during happy hour to our surprise and our bill was so reasonable. What a pleasant experience! I highly recommend visiting!!

    Food was great! Two of us shared the large veg platter and a meat dish. More than enough food…but we kept eating.

    The food at Ethiopic has been wonderful on every visit. The dipping sauce is a perfect match for the fresh bread for the table. The beef and lentil sambusas were tasty, and their dipping sauce was also a perfect match. The small veggie sampler with an added order of Doro Wat made for a fantastic meal.
