    Don’t ask to modify any of the food to accommodate food allergies, or heaven forbid, patron preferences. Even though they don’t list ingredients that are common allergies and aversions. I was left with a play of lettuce as my only option. It’s one of those kind of of chefs. My cocktail was nice though. And the busboy was kind.

    The music volume was a bit loud but the music choices were great. The ambience and design of the place are both really lovely. The staff is exceptionally professional, while still being very approachable. The only tiny negative; they were actually a little overly attentive on filling our water glasses! :) Will definitely return. The green falafel, the hummus / tahini and the roasted carrots with sumac were especially excellent! Excited to try everything else on the menu soon.

    Very loud and chaotic with just middling food at least as the vegetarian appetizers went. I would have appreciated a vegetarian enteee… a tagline perhaps …

    We celebrated my husband’s birthday with dinner at Saffy’s. The service was excellent; not just attentive but friendly and enjoyable. We followed our server’s recommendations for everything and loved all her choices (except the wine, which was $21 for a glass and just so-so — I recommend sticking to the cocktail menu, which we both loved). Most extraordinary was the lobster skewer, but the hummus ful is also exceptionally good, as were the endive salad and the large plate skewers. The only thing I disliked was the noise level, which made conversation difficult, even out on the sidewalk.

    Food was excellent. The wait staff and bus staff were top notch. The manager and hostess could be friendlier but snootiness comes with the territory when a place becomes so popular.

    Truly one of the most enjoyable meals I have had in LA! Service and staff were incredibly attentive and kind — our glasses were not empty the entire visit. The food was spectacular, particularly the Lobster Skewer. Drinks were wonderful, wine list well rounded and natural (I think? Some, at least). 11/10 recommend.

    Best Middle-Eastern Cuisine in the city. We had falafels, hummus, and creatively seasoned lamb/beef skewers. I was particularly impressed by the high energy and joy expressed by a very attentive server. Her infectious smile and engaging personality were the highlights of my evening, even out-performing the spectacular culinary delights.

    There was just something off about the place. Their cocktails were too sweet, no flexibility or creativity in suggesting something else. Food was good on going in but a few hours later we were still tasting it!! And it felt a bit greasy. It’s street food so maybe that’s supposed to be part of the attraction!! Satisfied our curiosity. We’ll stick to Bavel!

    The inside dining room is extremely loud. My ears are ringing today! Hard surfaces and loud music. Good ventilation due to open fire cooking and a pizza style oven open for all to see, which somehow didn’t feel uncomfortable during this heat wave! Overall, I liked it a lot and I’m glad it’s in Hollywood. The space is great and the patio is festive. Fans are a great idea. I like the food in their other restaurants, especially Bavel, and much of it is the same. Some notes: The carrots were a bit tired, as in wilted, and the yellowfin tuna crudo didn’t have a lot of flavor, or it needed more seasoning and the fried tortillas it came with were not quite fried enough, but limp. The tomato and eggplant dish was outstanding. The green falafels were nicely bite size so as not to fill up on them, but could have used more of the dipping sauce. The plate looked a little naked. The skewers were good, chicken was a tad underdone and not as chunky as the pork. Some people may not feel comfortable handling a sword size skewer at their table! Diners are expected to de-skewer their meat. The lamb and beef schwarma with a mixture of onions and greens was very tasty and the house made whole wheat pita it was wrapped in was very good. You can see them making it in the kitchen. Our servers were all excellent, but the service was a bit fast. In the end it slowed down, so that made up for the very quick beginning. Good cocktails and small but nice wine list. We ordered a French biodynamic granache that turned into a very pleasant surprise. The sour cherry and pineapple swirl sorbet was excellent on a 95 degree night!

    I was really excited about trying this place and I guess because I’m a Middle Eastern chef I’m gonna be a little bit pick here on flavors versus the average person. Our service was phenomenal the ambience it’s great it’s a great place for a first date or follow updated just a great date place cool drinks nice size portions but it is extremely overpriced for what you are being served. The skewers were underwhelming. The cod was good but definitely not worth $50. For better food I would probably go to Sadaf for kebabs and hummus bar for everything else unfortunately won’t be back.

    Food and service was great! Sitting inside was lively with a view of staff working in the open kitchen but a bit loud and hot. Given that there was a heat wave, the warm temp inside even with air conditioning is understandable. The many small plates we ordered were amazing. For the large entree to share, we got the lamb and beef shawarma but felt it was a bit lackluster compared to the dishes we had before. It was presented as a wrap sandwich and tasted good but not great. I really want to try the tangine and skewers next time which looked good at other diners tables. Overall love this new restaurant and will recommend highly!

    Delicious!! The food was incredible! The oy issues we had were with the heat. It's so hot in the restaurant and they kept the doors open which created a fly situation which was very unpleasant. I'm sure this won't be a problem when the heat wave ends so we'll be sure to be back when it cools down.

    Excellent food from the chef/owners of Bestia and Bavel. The red snapper tagine is extraordinary. The hummus is perfect. Love the yellowtail crudo. Great cocktail program. One of my absolute favorite restaurants, anywhere. Great, personable service, too.

    Delicious food. Unfortunately The place was way to hot and stuffy due to very poor AC and they leave the doors open to try and get some air inside. The kitchen is open to restaurant and very loud and hot. The portions are large, delicious and easy to share and I hope to be back on a cooler evening.

    Where to start with this unbelievable horrific experience for our party of 6. 1. warm beer - waitress says that’s the way it comes out ! Miraculously the manger brought another it was cold. She probably didn’t pickup from the bar in a timely manner. 2. I had requested separate checks on the reservation. The server at first was ok with that. Then as she came back to take the order she stated” it didn’t make sense for her to do separate checks” WTF 3. I asked her then to remove the the extra Service health charge of 4% bs. When the bill came it was still on there ! 4. Then the manager came to table to say we ordered too much food!!! WTF who does that… we ordered 2 kabobs per person….. these kabobs are not huge and only come with flat bread. We stated we wanted what we ordered. 5. When the food came we told the delivery server we weren’t sharing and that we’re eating what we ordered. He ROLLED his eyes and stated “you’re one of THOSE customers” again WTF!!! The food was not spectacular that we would endure this type of treatment again. We are avid customers of Bestia and Bavel. This place is a one and DONE!!!!
