When we ordered an appetizer recommended by our waitress, it was so salty that we could not eat it. We told the waitress we were unhappy with our appetizer, but she did nothing about it. Thankfully, they served a tasty main course- the eggplant schnitzel, but overall the service isn't the greatest.

We had a fabulous experience at Shook. Our server Donna was spot on with all her recommendations for the food. Everything from food, wine ambiance was wonderful. We celebrated our 30th anniversary and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you!

Excellent middle Eastern fare with fresh oven cooked breads made on site. Excellent service. Due to COVID capacity limits it wasn't too crowded but could be noisy if full.

The salads were phenomenal. We tried the Cauliflower tabbouleh and the Fattoush. The real stand out was the Eggplant Schnitzel and the GIANDUJA chocolate mousse. I'm looking forward to trying the brunch menu and the fancy coffees!

Excellent service, high quality food. Very tasteful. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the evening. I found it a bit loud but I am older so maybe that doesn't count. The younger adults thought it was fine.

Food was great, ambience was good and service was also nice but its still very expensive for the service. Everything else was great but it was probably worth little less than the price.

Overall I had a great first time lunch at Shook after my friend raved about this gem of a spot for months.
Portions were fine but the mains could be a little more in portion (such as the great Tah Dig) vs the small plate very generous dips considering the pricing of Shook's menu.
Definitely will return to try different dishes of this wonderful Middle Eastern eatery.
Service and the friendly, casual ambiance just wonderful. Thank you

We really enjoyed the brunch. It's a lovely restaurant and the food was delicious. That said, the Tabbouleh salad that was ordered was a very small portion size for the cost. It would be nice if it could have been a little larger and come with at least a piece of pita bread. There's no option of adding on any extras or dips, so its not very satisfying as a main.
