    Ocean Grill DOES NOT EXIST. We showed up and it is now a BBQ place in the same location/address. It would’ve been nice to know this was NOT the restaurant we booked. OpenTable needs to be updated apparently. Very disappointed

    The food was authentic as can be!!! We are huge Mediterranean eaters. Everything was great. Owner came out to check on us twice. Gave us free hummus to try, which was outstanding. Don’t think it’s pricy cause the food was plentiful.

    The ambience and customer service let the venue down. Videos of food prep being playing while eating was a bit off putting - raw meet and fish being butchered probably isn’t necessary although I understand they were showing the process.. Customer service was basic, staff didn’t smile once. Waited a good while before being offered drink service, there was only one other table in use. No recognition of my birthday, that was listed on the booking. Food was good, lamb tagine was tasty.

    We were seated and waited 10+ mins to be given a menu (or water or anything.) Others were seated after us and taken care of. Finally we stopped a waitress and asked for a menu and water and we were told they “could go get someone.” We left. Driver to our next restaurant said the lack of service or interest in customer service is pretty common.

    We love this place! Some of the best Mediterranean food we’ve found in South Florida. The restaurant is just a short walk from downtown Hollywood and has a great vibe. Love that the chef checks on the guests and gets to recognize regulars! We highly recommend Shabo’s to anyone visiting Hollywood and longing for good food and a welcome atmosphere.

    Amazing!! Our server was Victoria which was amazing. She was so engaging with my friend and I. We were unsure what to order, she helped us in the process. Was attentive to when we needed water or any other additional stuff. Food was out of the world amazing. We ordered a platter from the appetizer amazing. I just would tell them not to put tomato on the grape leaf, that gave it an odd taste. And the baby bbq chicken was delicious, so good, the meat was coming off the bone and the saffron rice Complement it really well.

    Let me start by saying that I have never given a bad review. I believe that when things are wrong in an establishment the manner in which the issue is handled determines my overall experience. I have been to this restaurant several times and have always enjoyed the ambiance and food. Last night, however, prompted this review and a vow never to return. My companion and I each ordered lamb dishes. I ordered the Kabob which was slightly over cooked for my liking but ok. she ordered the lamb platter which was so overcooked and stringy that is was inedible. I brought this to the attention of my server and just asked if they would replace it with a different dish. She came back with a tear in her eye..I can only imagine the tongue lashing she must have received in the kitchen ..and told us they don’t do replacements. Whatever happened to customer service? I’m glad for them that can afford to lose a relatively regular diner and someone had recommended this to several friends. Never again!!!

    We used to dine at their former place on Hollywood Boulevard. It was very cozy. The new space is very spacious but it looks like they are occupying something formerly occupied by a bar/dance club complete with strobe light and disco ball Food was very good. Service was attentive and our waitress was wonderful. Best baklava ever had

    Food was delicious but the service was not good. There was not enough staff. We got our starters before we got our drinks. The drinks were served at the wrong table so we told them these were our drinks, so they were taken for that table again and served to our table. We accepted that since we didn't wanted to wait any longer but we still missed one drink and our son finally got his beer (how easy is it to grab a bottle of beer) when the main course already came in. We hardly had any time between the starters and the main course and didn't even finish our starters when the main course arrived. They forgot to bring one side and we didn't bother to remind them anymore since that side would probably come in after we finished our main course. So we told them at the end and the only answer was that they would take it off the receipt.

    Shabo has the potential to be a REALLY good to great restaurant. The short rib was tender, but DRENCHING it in BBQ sauce is not an adequate replacement for seasoning. It made the chef look lazy and unmotivated. On the other hand I ABSOLUTELY loved the falafel on the appetizer platter. Like Oliver Twist…Please sir I want some more of that!!! My Mom THOROUGHLY enjoyed the fish. We wrapped up with the MOST delicious dessert called Kanafeh. The best way to describe it is HEAVEN and pure MAGIC in your mouth…THIS Shabo DOES VERY well. I will go back, but I will order something else perhaps a falafel platter and DEFINITELY the kanafeh.

    1st time to this restaurant. Pleasantly surprised, great find and will return! Food was excellent. Restaurant very clean. The only complaint, server could have explained a little more about the menu. You can see they didn’t have enough help. I would not fault them, due to the craziness we’re all living in with covid and finding people to work. I am glad my family gave it a try!

    I felt I was way overcharged for the wine, it retails at Total wine for $8,97 a bottle and I was charged $50,00 even though it said $45,00 on the wine list, that is a mark up of 5 times cost, a bit of an outrage.

    The food was tasty, but the metal chairs very uncomfortable. Not conducive to want to stay long. There was live music, way too loud. We asked to have the musician tone it down, but it was ignored. Would I go back? Not for the time being. It is a neighborhood restaurant, but I would need to check on the music and if the chairs have been replaced. Too bad, because the food was very good.
