    The Food was great, especially the kofta and the Hoummos. The Best was that gteat wine that we had a pure Cabernet Sauvignon from Chateau Ksara Lebanon - The Perfect match with the food.

    This is the the most laid back eclectic cozy environment. I would not advise booking an outside table during the summer until they get better AC for that area. However, the food and the service is always stellar. I usually order the lamb burger and sample whatever entree my husband orders. Everything has been very tasteful. I don't smoke hookah, but I am told this is the best place in the area for hookah.

    Service was good and staff were kind. Inside looks very shabby and rough. Food tasted just fine - was not high quality and far too expensive for what they're putting out.

    Love love love the falafel basket! We also tried the Sambousek and the spicy hummus which were fabulous. Finished off sharing an order of the baklava which was delicious as well. Would absolutely come back and try a few new things!

    Review for Zatar Dallas- Food was outstanding, our waiter was mediocre but other staff members were friendly and helpful, but charging for still Ozarka water (we asked for tap water) and ice (from vodka on rocks) with a $100+ bill for two people is ridiculous. Nickel and dimming us ruined the experience. Do better management.

    Sadly, their menu was very limited when I visited the restaurant. They only had the basic appetizers and not their signature dishes. The taste was fair, but too expensive for the amount and quality. After our server took our order and began to bring the food, we figured that some of the plates were missing. She said that the missing dishes were not being sold at the moment. She explained that they had an outdated menu. The server was fine, but we were very discouraged for not being able to consume items on the menu.

    The staff were all very friendly... The atmosphere was balanced with a nice music variety softly playing in the background... The falafel was wonderfully crisp with a spectacular blend of spices and the fatoush salad with a bold lemony zest were our favorites but all the rest was just average... The mezza is very overpriced for what you get but all the other plates are about average... The only other thing that could help with the flavor quality is new oil... One of our plates had zatar fries and you could taste the old oil used to fry them... They do have a hookah area which seemed very popular so if you are into that you'd probably enjoy the atmosphere!

    Went on a date. It’s more of a hookah bar than a dining place. Some parts of the meal were excellent, other parts not so much. It wasn’t a bad experience, but I’m going to try something else next time.

    Beware >>> My only complaint is that a 20% gratuity was automatically added to our bill for 3 people. The receipt we signed also had a blank space for a tip. If we weren’t paying attention to the detailed receipt, we would not have seen that the tip was already included and tipped twice.

    I can't speak for the food but the drinks and atmosphere were enjoyable! They have a main dining area and a patio for hookah which is nice for the fresh air but you do get the noise from the street depending where you sit. The hookah is mediocre and I wouldn't return again due to that.

    Our server was so friendly and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there! I ordered the kabob platter and my girlfriend ordered the salmon with Brussel sprouts. Both plates were absolutely delicious. We also ordered hookah and he curated an awesome flavor for us including mint, rose, and something fruity. He also treated us to a free plate of Baklava! From start to end, we loved the place, the food, and the workers! Thank you for a great experience!

    Service was extremely slow. We went for dinner and ended up being there 3 hours because it took so long to get our food and even longer to get our bill. The waiter took my card to run the payment and I didn’t receive it back for almost 45 minutes, despite asking other servers what was going on (as our waiter was nowhere to be found). The food was fine and the portions were large. The bathroom (at least women’s) looked dirty and the stall was so small my knees touched the door while I sat and I’m not very tall. It’s also fairly expensive- I had 2 drinks, an entree, and split an appetizer with my friend and my bill was $60 before tip. The waiter was also unprofessional and asked for our numbers on our receipts when we (finally) got our cards back. Would not recommend.

    This is a very nice place, we were seated immediately. The server was great and friendly. However people who came in after us got their food/drinks/hookah before us. I saw two of the workers arguing. But other than that everything was great, the playlist was also good!
