We chose this place because of the great reviews and were not disappointed. We were a large group of 12 and the Maitre d was kind enough to seat our party as we arrived , rather than make us wait for all 12 of us to get there before being seated. A few in our party are vegetarians , others are not—everyone found something tasty to enjoy. Great cocktails as well.

Highly recommended. Booked a table for 12 in the outdoor area that is a nice patio with plenty of heat lamps etc. It was spacious and private. The food was excellent - we ordered a few of the dips (hummus, eggplant, peppers and walnut). Very comprehensive range of spirits, wines and cocktails. We tried a couple of the margaritas that were expensive but delicious. Our server was very user friendly. My only constructive feedback is they seemed a bit short on staff.

They were great and flexible with us as we switched from outside (too cold) to inside (practically a private room). Great meal!

Sadly, we dined on a Sunday evening and our experience was all about them getting ready to close. The service was awful; however, the food was delicious.

Starting with the noise level - It was energetic that night and a little difficult to hear my dinner companion - we had to be a bit yelly, but the place was packed and it was very positive festive energy, so in that sense I didn't mind. We sat on the patio which was lovely. I felt like everything was perfect, from the crispiness of the fries, to the burger (not too well done, not too raw), to the drinks that I got (I tried two specialty sangrias). I'd love to go again. Maybe to try a brunch. I'd seen some bad reviews and almost didn't go, but then I decided what the heck. The turkish apricot margarita was too tempting.

How amazing is this place? First their decor and ambience is itself 5*. We set outdoors so can’t say about inside dining but the set up outdoors is decent with single covered and separated cubicles for covid measures with a tiny (rather ineffective tho) heater overhead for the cold. Service could use some help/ it took forever for our server to find us, get us water, get our heater going, take our order etc. but the food was amazing. Most of us has the shakshouka (top notch) and babganoush. I was pleasantly surprised this place has great value for $$ since the helping was rather generous. I’d return here any day! The ambience (music, decor) is sexy.

The host was accommodating when I requested a different table. The food was amazing. The only thing I would change.. I ordered a glass of Sauvignon Blanc that came already served. I always like looking at the bottle. I think that is important that the waiter pour the wine if front of the client. I don’t know what they served me but I had two glasses only and it gave me a splitting headache.

Perfect ambiance and set up for a large work gathering. Outdoor heaters kept us cozy and the happy hour deals were phenomenal. Everyone loved it and we can't wait to go back!

I've been here twice now and both times had great experiences, sitting outdoors in the summer and also fall (on a pretty warm night, but they have outdoor heaters when it gets chillier). The food is incredible and so are the cocktails. This is a great spot for a date or group outing - highly recommend!

Normally this is a great go to for brunch or dinner. Extremely slow with service today- our server came back only 1x very late into our seating and we continuously had to flag other staff for more drinks, additional items, etc. We don’t think it was an understaffing issue because we saw staff, namely the hostess literally hanging around playing on their phones.

Shakshuka is always good.
Normally a great vibe. Disappointed today, but will try again.

Food was average to below average. Service was good but we were there at a very slow time. There were little gnats flying around everywhere and were landing in my wine and water glass and food.

This was our second time at this place. We had dinner on the patio tonight. The patio is quite big with a nice layout and decor. The food and Turkish apricot margaritas were great. This is a great spot for happy hour or dinner.

We were placed in a table with no cover. It started to drizzle so they put up large umbrellas but turned off the heaters. We were very cold. Tried giving the waiting part cash (including his tip) and charge the rest and it was too complicated.

We got a table inside, which was noisy next to a private event. The service could have been better, but we thoroughly enjoyed our cocktails, ALL the food, and a great wine selection too. We'll be back, but I definitely prefer the ambiance outside.

I had a lunch party of 13 and it was a great experience. I was so happy they were able to accommodate such a large group outdoors. It's a great, covered space and the food was delicious.
