We ate dinner at David's Cafe on a snowy night, and there was enough activity for the restaurant to feel lively. Though we had a little trouble (quickly corrected) with one order, we were very satisfied with the food. The place is not fancy, but it has some nice touches. Everything worked out more than adequately.

Food is superb at this Greenwich Village Mediterranean restaurant. We started with appetizers for the table (4 of us), and each was excellent, calamari to meatballs to artichokes, hummus and more. We then split 2 entrees amongst ourselves- Wow! What a meal!!

Local 92 has become an essential for me when I go to the East Village. Their happy hour menu is amazing, wish it ended at 8pm! They have many different tapas style Israeli appetizers for about $5 each, and are well worth the price. Love it here. Waiter could have been a bit more friendly this time; last time the waiters and service was amazing!

I LOVE this place - what a great find. So many great vegetarian/vegan options. Service and ambiance was amazing, came here on a rainy summer night and it was perfect. Drinks were great too! Very fresh-tasting, authentic, and well prepared food.

Great food, cute decor, wonderful ambiance, good service, reasonable prices. I'll definitely be back for dates and friends dinners, it's a versatile place that could fit any occasion!

Service was great - very attentive, friendly staff. Stick to the Middle Eastern dishes , what they are very good at. The seasonal pumpkin gnocchi was tempting, but you can get better made pasta dishes at an Italian restaurant...

Solid food & wine. Very nice servers albeit a little slow but it was a busy Saturday night. Had the dips & salmon & both were good - nothing knocked my socks off but no complaints. Felt it was a good bang for my buck.

Was seeing a show in the area and wanted something close by that wasn't a pub or Italian. Found this little gem on the google maps neighborhood suggestions and checked it out on Yelp. I am always skeptical of Yelp after several very disappointing experiences but this was spot on. Everything was delicious but what stood out was the lamb tagine special and the tiramisu dessert. If you like tiramisu and it's available, don't pass on this one, it was so so perfectly balanced and created with care. While not being a cheap dinner, it wasn't expensive with especially considering the freshness and quality of the food. It came out to about 55/pp with appetizers, dinner, one dessert, and drinks.

Local 92 is more for drinking than eating. Octopus was cooked appropriately, but chicken tagine was overcooked and under spiced.

I really like this spot's ambiance - it's charming, warm and cozy. Went on a Wednesday after work with a group of friends and we shared small plates and appetizers which is great, as I get to try more flavors this way! I love Mediterranean dips, and the hummus and babaganoush were delish. We also took advantage of the happy hour sangria...also very tasty! Quiet enough to have conversations. I will definitely return.

Had never heard of this place prior to finding it on OpenTable.com. Made a lunch reservation to meet a friend here and was super happy with my decision. The server was very friendly and accommodating (super cute too) and the food was delicious. At first I was concerned that the portion size of the Gnocchi I had ordered was too small to satisfy my appetite (looked more like an appetizer then a main course) but it was so light, fluffy and yummy that I asked for bread to sop up the oil that it was in.
