Highly recommend the tasting menu. Especially if you're sharing. Abbey dish was delicious and the dining experience overall was so great
The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly and the food was amazing. I recommend the hummus to anyone wanting to go. I will definitely tell our friends about Zahav.
Once again my visit to Zahav was incredible! My husband and I went for our anniversary. They had specialized printed menus for us. They gave us special cocktails for us and took note that I don't drink alcohol. We did the tayim and loved all of our selections, especially the sable and the duck hearts! Our server and the rest of the wait staff were attentive and very nice.
Birthday dinner. Kinda sorta or just celebrating getting a reservation at my favorite place to eat. Food was over over the top. Service perfect as usual. Can’t wait til my next reservation in 3 months.
I took my mother to Zahav for her 77th birthday. She loved it! She was not very familiar with Israeli food but she was converted. Everything was so fresh and flavorful and we enjoyed every bite. The staff was so friendly, accommodating, attentive and well versed in the menu selections. They made my mom feel so special! They also gave little extra nibbles that show they like to go the extra mile. Even when going to the rest room the staff were so friendly saying hello and thanking us for coming. We felt so appreciated! I would highly recommend Zahav to anyone! It is truly a Philadelphia gem!
My wife and I had returned for our second time. The food and service was fantastic. The employees were very attentive and made the evening special. Worth the trip to Philly from NY just to fine here. We’re coming back this summer.
Every bit of the experience was worth it - from the food, to the service, to the ambiance. Our server and all the staff was extremely attentive to our table. My boyfriend and I came for our anniversary and we wouldn’t have changed a thing! Definitely worth making the reservations months in advance!
Waited 3 months for reservations and maybe that's why I didn't give 5 stars. I expected it to be phenomenal. It was good, but I wouldn't necessarily need to go back again. The salads and hummus were delicious, and fried cauliflower was amazing. The desserts were phenomenal, but the main courses were just ok.
Everyone was fantastic! Worth the 3 months waiting to go! Service was exceptional good concept of teamwork! Food was delicious literally everything was wonderful! Only complaint is that drinks take a while ... but if that’s the only things lacking! Kinda loud but it was busy so what to expect... only disappointment was that we were celebrating an anniversary and it didn’t get acknowledged, until next time Zahav!
We’ve been coming to Zahav for the last 9 years, and it just keeps getting better and better. The menu is always changing (but some things like the cauliflower are thankfully always there), the flavors are well balanced, and the service is consistently incredible. Looking forward to our next visit!
I’ve been to zahav several times. The food was excellent in the past now I would describe it as just good. I wasn’t happy to wait well over an hour for our food. The manager was apologetic about that but I couldn’t get past the fact that on Thursday at 5:30pm it took that long.
First time- exceptional meal - great value. Flavors were fresh, diverse and well balanced. Service was on point.
The food was delicious and unique. Aside from what we ordered, it was fun to be brought “surprises “ from the chef. Great, upbeat atmosphere. The wait service was very attentive.
We finally got to try Zahav and boy, oh boy, was it worth it! I loved everything we tried. Every dish was simply amazing. From the hummus to the fried halloumi to the 3-day slow roasted lamb shoulder. Holy cow! I can't wait to go back again.
My family first time. Want to experience something new, oh boy... Awesomeness!!!!! It was my birthday day! The food was Amazing! Our waiter was very nice and patient with us. He help make our experience great! We loved Zahav.....
From start to finish Zahav was a great experience. Service could not have been better. Our server was very helpful with meal choices and very attentive, without being overbearing. Meal was outstanding. Can't wait to go back.
Exactly 60 days before the date I wanted to go to Zahav, I signed in to OpenTable at exactly midnight and snagged a table for 5. By 12:05am all tables were taken. But the effort and the 60 days and the drive from DC were all well worth it for the meal we had. It was my birthday, and the restaurant had printed customized menus wishing me a happy day. The waitstaff was extremely attentive and welcoming, and remarkably good at pacing the meal for us. We ordered the tayim tasting menu, which I highly recommend if you're in a group. The hummus was extremely rich and smooth, and it was hard not to fill up on the delicious salatim. I highly recommend the haloumi, cauliflower, steak, and branzino, though you can't really go wrong anywhere on the menu. And I don't think I could pick a favorite of the desserts - each was so good. Chef Solomonov was kind enough to stop by our table and wish me a happy birthday, and the waitstaff offered champagne and brought out candles with the desserts. Overall, I was incredibly impressed with the food, the staff, and the whole experience!
This is the 2nd time we have been to Zahav and it was just as good as the first. The food is fantastic and the service is impeccable. Even Chef Solomonov came to our table and was charming and sweet. : )
Our experience was wonderful. Our server (Brendan, I believe) was spot-on and made for an enjoyable evening. The food is spectacular and the experience is really memorable. Zahav is truly a gem!
Extremely delicious food and excellent service! A bit pricey when all is said and done, but each new dish is tastier than the last. Definitely get a lot of different plates and share - the best way to enjoy this terrific culinary experience!!
I go every year for my birthday and it just gets better each year! Loved the new additions to the menu especially the challah with white fish and eves and orange wine! The service and food are always superb!
Great food. The wait staff was exceptional. Dining was leisurely. Very interesting flavors. We loved the tasting menu.
Amazing!!!! So full, but so good
Made a reservation 2 months in advance for my birthday and had an excellent experience! Everything was delicious and I felt well taken care of by all service staff. I highly suggest the tasting menu option if you eat as a group.
Our experience at Zahav was very good, but i went in with super high expectations and left disappointed. The food was good. Portions are so small it is silly, and I am glad that the price for each plate is appropriate for the portion size. The hummus is excellent, but needs to come with more than just the pita bread. Maybe my view of hummus is to western or American, but I was longing for cucumbers, feta, olives, tomato, and more. Skip the $28 vegetables that is sold as a side tot he hummus - it is weird and unsatisfying, and too expensive for what is presented. I will return to Zahav, and now that I have had this experience, I will sit at the bar and order a glass of wine and hummus, keeping it as simple as they do.
The service was incredible! This was only surpassed by the food which was remarkably complex with flavors that were nicely intertwined. Can't say enough about the kitchen staff who persanally attended to our tastes. In particular, kudos to prep chef Patrick S. who went above and beyond to tailor tastes and requests. The overall experinece was one to remember!
Excellent, attentive staff. Amazing food that just kept coming.
AWESOME!!!!!! Can’t wait to go back!!
Amazon g food, better service
This was one of the most incredible meals I've ever had! Definitely a lot of strongly flavored dishes. I had never dined here before, and I highly recommend the tasting menu. We were a party of 3 and the food, the wine pairings, and the service were exemplary!
The food was good, what you’d expect, but the service was absolutely outstanding.
Service was excellent
Zahav never disappoints! Just wish we could get reservations easily.
Zahav is the standard we hold every other restaurant experience to. This time wasno exception. The food, service, and experience was not to be forgotten—the reason we kept going back time and again. We have been to every Cook n Solo restaurant and not once been disappointed. We are massive fans!
From start to finish, just a delightful dining experience! Food was great. Service was great! Drinks were great.
I haven't been to a restaurant in a long time that had any more Creative menu. Our server Lindsie gave us great recommendations do not miss the bronzino, skirt steak or chicken.
Once again Zahav did not let us down. Everything was beyond amazing. We enjoyed every dish. Some of the highlights that we loved besides the salads, hummus and bread was the fried cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, caramelized fennel and the kebabs. The chocolate cake tonight was outstanding! I will be dreaming of that cake for days. Fantastic food, service and atmosphere!
A+. Would recommend. Every. Single. Time.
Go for your birthday!! But also just go, because Zahav is amazing!!
Went for my friend's birthday. Food and service were stellar. Love this place and would go back more often if I could get reservations more frequently.
They just went the extra mile in making my friend's birthday extra special by putting her name and "happy birthday" on the menu, sparkling wine, candle on her dessert, a complimentary course, and just being really attentive.
Tipped our waiter well because he deserved it!
