Everything we ordered was excellent to include the service. We actually met owner-family members to include the lovely lady who makes all the pastries - a Matriarch of the family. All were extremely lovely people. Salads were delicious. Highly recommend the restaurant.

The restaurant is very cute but unfortunately the food did not match that day. Our breakfast scrambles were too salty to eat- either the chef didn’t realize they poured a lot of salt in, or they didn’t take into account that lox and capers would add to the saltiness. It was unfortunate. We ended up going to another restaurant on the block to eat.

It would’ve been better if our server would have served us instead of another person from another station. Apparently our server did not want to serve us. We are a middle age couple who is African American. That’s unfortunate!

Very tasty Mediterranean food especially you should try their Beef/lamb donor kebap, Adana and Moussaka. There was only one server during lunch time so it’s pretty hard to get an attention. Overall fast food service and kind staff.

We arrived and stood at the entrance for nearly five minutes before anyone greeted us. Multiple wait staff saw us and ignored us. Then, we were finally brought to a table, and waited some more. The service was slow, and the food lacked flavor. We certainly were disappointed at our first time trying out this restaurant.

I was extremely surprised at how varied the menu was for brunch. Lots to pick from. I had the fruit crepe and thought it was one of the best I ever had. Others in our party had omelets that we're substantial and delicious.

I ordered a meal BECAUSE of the side served with it. My meal was delivered with rice. When I questioned the waitress she told me that no one had liked the side and they were now just serving the rice. I explained to here WHY I'd ordered my meal and further, that I don't eat rice. She offered no way around this. I'm not expecting them to reprint their menus with every change but a verbal warning would have been nice. NOT impressed

We were a party of 6 and we were all very pleased with the food. We started off with Dolmades and an order of Blakened Brussels Sprouts followed by splitting two salads, a Caesar and a Roasted Beet Salad. The salads are large enough to share and they were. Both the Stuffed Grape Leaves and the Brussels Sprouts were excellent. We were off to a great start with just one little hiccup. I had ordered a cup of soup but the server forgot until well after the salad. At that point, I saw no point in having it and waived him off when he came to deliver it.

I had an Iskender (Beef & Lamb Doner over warmed Pita bread, Fresh Tomato Sauce, Browned butter & Yogurt) @ $19. It was good but I might have liked the Beef Lamb Donner standard plating. My wife had the Sumac Chicken Tagine ($22.00) Boneless Half Chicken Sauteed w/Wine, Sumac, Cream Sauce, Serve w/Couscous. Fish Stew, Moussaka and a couple of other mains were chose by the other guests. Everyone seemed quite pleased with their food. Service was OK. And prices were reasonable. Try it, you'll like it!

We enjoyed the food. We noticed there were some communication issues between us and the waitstaff and among the waitstaff and the cooks. We specifically asked if rice came with our meal and we were informed that it did, only to have it come out without the rice. Also, the waitress gave us two recommendations for wine. My girlfriend selected one. But then it took 10 minutes for it to be delivered and that was after I asked for it. Also, the bill came and we were told to take our time and enjoy our dessert. Then, within like 3 minutes, the waitress came back and said the cashier was ready to go and we needed to close out because she was the only one who knew the register.We thought maybe the place had only be open for a short while but learned it had been open for longer than a year.

The appetizers were more tasty than the main courses. Baklava was sickeningly sweet. Oren’s Hummus and The Kebabery have much better Mediterranean food. Will not be back.
