Visited Hummus bar for early lunch on a weekday, so it wasn't crowded and servers were available, attentive, and friendly. All of our ordered dishes came out at no time. Overall we had an enjoyable experience - food was fresh and tasteful. Plenty of choices on the menu to satisfy every appetite and preference. Pricewise, on the higher end, especially for the choices of chicken hears or liver kebabs. We would love to come back.

One of the very best options for Mediterranean / Israeli food in the valley. The different hummus plates are outstanding. Falafel might be the best I've ever had.

Have been wanting to get over to Hummus Bar and try it for some time (we are in West LA so it's not super convenient) and decided to go on a whim after golf in the valley last week. It was FANTASTIC! Everything we ordered (and we ordered way too much because it all looked/sounded so good!) was delicious. We did have to sort of direct ourselves to get seated and then waited a few minutes for someone to come out and help us, but the young man who took care of us was great! Super patient and helpful with the menu and very willing to recommend things, he even gave us the scoop on two or three different items to try next time. The food came quickly and he was there several times to check on us and make sure we were well attended to. Going back ASAP!!!

Only did not give 5 stars because outside seating is fine, but next to parking garage entrance and parking lot, but may do 5 stars after our next visit if it's as good (which we are banking on!!!)!

This was the first time that my friends had been to Hummus Bar. I had made a reservation and they set up a table in the private dining area in the back which was awesome. We had an amazing server, Paul, who took care of us and his replacement, Michael, was also very attentive. The mushroom hummus was a hit! We love the fresh bread that kept coming to the table. The food portion are HUGE and we each had lunch for the next day. It was such a lovely evening out. We will be back for sure!

The food is outstanding!! Best hummus & skewers bursting with delicious flavors. Homemade bread is fantastic. Therefore, my husband & I want to go to the Hummus Bar frequently from now on. The wait staff were very attentive and prompt with fulfilling our requests. Everyone was friendly & courteous. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone. Our dining experience was so enjoyable! I can't wait until we go back soon.

My friends and I came here for a bachelor party. The food was delicious and the vibe was laid-back. Our waiter, Ben, absolutely went ABOVE and beyond for us. He took excellent care of us, and brought us special pita and dessert on the house. He really helped make that night extra special.

Excellent food but truly dreadful service. I don’t want the waiter to be my friend, but I also don’t want to have to ask three times for the drinks we ordered, three times for glasses of water, and three times for our bill, all from a bored waiter with the attitude of someone who acts like he’s working there only because his parents told him he had to get a job.

Others recommend Tel Aviv restaurant. We’ll try that next time.

We have been to Hummus Bar many times. This time was to celebrate two birthdays. Food delicious as always, but liver was slightly overdone, and the lamb was chewy.

Great place to grab a bite.
The bread and Mushroom Hummus are a must, highly recommended even if you just need a snack.
I always have to end with the Knaffe Mallabi is the perfect way to end any time you visit from a snack to a meal!

Hummus Bar never disappoints! If you like Israeli food that is authentic and totally yummy, this is the place to go! If you are looking for a great place to go with the family or a small group of people or on a fun date, this is the place to go. Large portions that can easily serve two. No hesitation in recommending!
