Wow! What can I say, the food was fresh and absolutely delicious. Started with the Mediterranean sampler, chicken Shwarma sandwich, and finished with the baklava! Great waitstaff and the owners stopped by our table multiple time to check on our experience. We will definitely be back!

Excellent food, lovely people. They were overwhelmed by the crowd, and were having technical issues with open table. They were accommodating, apologetic and kind in how they handled this. It's likely they need more servers on the weekend. Regardless, we enjoyed our wine as they prepared our dinner, and the meal was worth the wait! Best babaganoush I've ever had! Very good and I wish them great success. We will be back.

The smokiness of the eggplant (baba ganoush) was wonderful, tahini very good . The group ordered a salad that they liked but which I did not eat because of the cucumber and red peppers.
Three of us had the lamb and really liked it. The chicken dish was very good also. Quite relaxed and we were able to talk a lot without having to raise our voices. The baklava was homemade and delicious. Service was friendly for the most part and met all our needs.
This was a last minute decision looking for a place halfway between our locations. We were quite happy to have chosen it.

We love Mediterranean food and rank Fattoush as top in quality of class. While the menu is not expansive, what they have on the menu is exceptional in flavor, quality and value. Their Hummus is without a doubt the best we have had at any Mediterranean restaurant irrespective of price range in many cities. They import an amazing Lebanese Tahini for all the dishes including the Hummus, tahini dressings and sauces. Every dish we tried was wonderful. Roger and Rudi, the owners are present and their attention to detail clearly shows in the quality of the food and their service. We will be very frequent guests even though we will need to drive about an hour from home. We are recommending to Fattoush to all our friends.

The food was absolutely wonderful and the atmosphere was relaxing and quiet. You can tell it’s family run, in the best way! The chef was creating delightful and tasty dishes while also serving them to our table and checking in to make sure everything was to our liking. The service was great, and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Can’t wait to go back!

Fabulous! The food was awesome and service was attentive. As Fattoush is a BYOB (no problem) it would have been nice to have some pita wedges to dip in olive oil while sipping wine while 'working' the menu. Regardless...if you don't visit Fattoush and be a regular you are losing out! My wife had the Chicken Shawarma Platter and she loved it. I had the Lamb Gyro which was awesome. Her platter included Tabouli and was the best I've tasted. I wish I had ordered the Tabouli as an aside vs. the fries. The fries were ok but not hand cut but seemed to be from a bag of frozen crinkle cut fries. Hey, that won't stop us from going there again. As to the noise level, everything was great with our table for two until a table of 4 was seated next to us. Of course there were two rather vocal men in that party and that happens at any restaurant. The management can't be blamed for that. Overall, a hundred stars.

Very pleasant staff, and good service. A couple of us ordered curries and while they were delicious, there was lots of curry sauce, but food portions in the sauce were quite meager. The apps were very good, as was the dessert. Overall a good bargain and nice experience.

Nice place. Not luxurious. Great server. Friendly greeting. Prompt attention. Just had apps this time. Baba gnoush was fantastic. Ultra smoky. Hummus ok. Did not care for the extra thin pita bread Would ask for no additional olive oil on top next time. Plan to return. Aromas great. Byob for wine big plus.

Our 2nd time here. Very sad to say that we had to leave after an hour because our meal had not appeared, and we had a show to catch. We disappointed but not upset since they were clearly understaffed - until the owner got testy with us. Not going back.

This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. Our food was outstanding in flavor and presentation. We dined with another couple who are generally more critical about food. They loved it and want to go again! It was not busy during the 6:00 hr on a tues. the restaurant is clean and lovely but very low key and casual.

One of the best places in the area! Always so fresh and delicious. Go you will not regret it! I've tried many things on the menu and it's all soooo good! Make sure to leave room for their desserts. They are amazing! I personally Love The baklava but my husband loves the bread pudding :)

This is a fantastic gem of a restaurant. We came with our friends and were immediately warmly greeted. It’s BYOB, so the owner/server quickly brought out wine glasses and water. We had a lot of catching up to do with our friends, and the restaurant allowed us to take our time ordering - and recommended some wonderful dishes. We had the sampler - the baba ghanouj and hummus were fantastic. We shared two salads for the four of us:Greek and Fattoush. Both were delicious. I had the chicken shawarma, and my husband had the chicken bistro. Both were large portions and delicious. The hospitality was what made the experience even better. We will definitely go back!

Met friends and Started with delicious Baba Gnoush (sp) with pita bread and veggies. We each had lamb gyros and all enjoyed. Two of us had a side of Greek salad...I loved the salty feta and olives. Although the waitress suggested baklava for dessert, none of us had room. There were about 8 tables filled with others coming for take out on a Thursday night so it was not noisy. We left before 7:00. I recommend to give it a try!

Fattoush is a low-key restaurant that delivers with a combination of excellent service, moderate prices and, most importantly, very good food. I believe our server was also the owner, and he was friendly and efficient. The hummus appetizer was excellent, and the sandwiches we had were filling and loaded with fresh well-prepared ingredients.
