Service was great - everyone worked well together. Food was crisp, fresh and delicious. Good value for money. The outdoor seating area was great. Will definitely be back
What a lunch! Chicken hummus, roasted beets, lamb kabob.
Chicken Schnitzel sandwich. Absolutely divine!
The food here is absolutely amazing. Top notch. It was extremely fast, but the only problem we had is our server was not very attentive and took 10-15 minutes after we were seated to be greeted. I have been here before and service was excellent. Our server this night was off. We sat upstairs. Everything else was perfect. We will be back.
This place is the bomb!
The food and service were amazing! Our server made great recommendations and the fried chicken hummus was particularly outstanding. I had no idea hummus and pita bread could taste so good!
AMAZING food, great atmosphere, wonderful drinks!!
Good food, good atmosphere, and good drinks! A great place to celebrate a special day for a special someone too!
Shaya never disappoints! Great wine list, excellent food selection great for sharing!
I've been wanting to try Shaya for literally years - and it did not disappoint. Everything was absolutely delicious. The small plates and sides were the stars, but we also loved the falafel, chicken schnitzel, and Israeli salad. I can't wait to return and try more.
Always delicious with excellent service
First time back since the big split several years ago- limited menu items for sure, but every dish was excellent- fresh, unique, and satisfying. Waiter service was outstanding. Definitely secure in returning here! A bit expensive but servings are shareable and understand they are getting. back on their feet.
Delicious food, delightful patio....a perfect place to dine!
Wonderful combination of flavors. Everything we ordered was delicious- baba ganoush, lamb ragú, lamb kofte kebab, seafood chermoula, aromatic rice.
Celebrated a birthday with a group of 6 and enjoyed everything! Our server whose name I believe was Dan was super friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious as always. Will always come back to Shaya!
Fried Chicken Hummus was excellent. Also had the slow roasted lamb, it was terrific also.
Beware the pitas, they are very filling (but the best ever).
Great experience as always. Sat on back porch and had a great dinner for the first time out in 6 months.
Great experience! Loved the food.
Dan gave us great service. Food was excellent.
Amazing food and service! Simple delicious Israel “home style “ food
Shaya never disappoints! They keep the pita bread stocked at your table at all times, and it’s always fresh & hot out of the oven. It’s super cool to watch them make the pita bread too, if you get a seat that’s close to the oven! We got the fried chicken hummus, and it’s the best specialty hummus that I’ve ever had. It’s topped with a salsa verde and the flavors complement each other so well. My boyfriend got the chicken schnitzel sandwich, and the chicken was so crispy and flavorful. I got the summer squash with peppers which was topped with fried onion and sunflower seeds! Perfect amount of crunch and bursting with flavor. Shaya will always be one of my favorite places on Magazine!
Reservation process was easy to follow. Staff did a great job of following Covid-19 protocols. Waiter was amazing and attentive. Food was delicious as always
Was there ever even a question? Shaya NEVER disappoints. And to make it better, it’s the rare place I actually eat my left-overs!
We had great service. The food was exceptional. We had a party of 6 and tried a lot of the menu items. Everything was very good.
Always a treat coming to shaya!
Loved the chicken with hummus appetizer.
Great lunch! Enjoyed a little normal life. Love the food!
The food was excellent. We had hummus and 3 of the appetizers along with falafel, aromatic rice, and roasted vegetables. All were flavorful and the pita was wonderful. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Everything was perfect! My husband and I love Shaya. We love the food and the experience. It's a perfect place to have time and peace to ourselves in a busy family life.
Best food I've ever had. From Tuna Steak to Slow Roasted Lamb, truly a gem.
We always enjoy going to Shaya whether it’s a dinner with the entire family or lunch with me and my daughter. My daughter loves the falafel sandwich and I really enjoy the hummus with cauliflower. She and I have a tendency to eat vegetarian options.
Birthday celebration. Great for friendly groups that are open to sharing. The lunch menu is a little sandwich heavy in my opinion but you can easily order around those. The bread is deadly and need to be careful not to fill up too early!
It was great and all Covid-19 protocols were followed.
Excellent food and service.
Food, cocktails and our waiter, Darren, were outstanding.
Don’t miss the salatim; my fav is the ikra
Great food - beautiful venue! We really enjoyed our visit!
Great experience. I look forward to dining there again.
It was a fantastic dining experience! The food and service was absolutely amazing!!!
