    It was a great place to go for people who have friends with all different food restrictions. One person is vegan and another is vegetarian and the rest of us had standard diets, and yet everyone found something they like that met their food needs and it was super good! Definitely will be going back!

    Nora was our server and she provided excellent service! I would highly recommend this restaurant for couples, small or large groups. My friends and I celebrated my husband's birthday - including our 5-month-old puppy. We sat outside on the patio with a great view of Michigan Avenue. The drinks, appetizers, and entrees were divine. I would certainly return. Thanks Again! -Clint

    The service was excellent but our charming server was completely hamstrung by the slow kitchen. It took an hour from the time we ordered the food to the time it was all at the table. Even then, my dish was not what I had ordered, but because we were heading off to a show after dinner, I didn't have time to complain and ask them to send me the right dish. It is a shame. The place is nice. But the kitchen. Ho hum...

    The service was nice and the setting was perfect. We did wait an extra 10 minutes for one of our guests meals to arrive after we all received ours. My girlfriend claimed her food was cold. I had the shawarma and that was excellent and a friend had lamb chops and he agreed they were great as well the server was kind and attentive to us and allowed us to have space as we ate. I Did not like the added gratuity for a table of only 5 as I felt we should of been able to say something since the food took so long for one of our guest.

    We really looked forward to trying Kurah as a new restaurant for us, and love Mediterranean food. Unfortunately, it really let us down. The Jerusalem salad looked (and tasted) like it had been sitting on the back shelf of the refrigerator for days. The schwarma while "ok" was unfortunately not hot enough and the vegetables were soggy. The falafel was also not particularly hot and tasted somewhat stale. The server was very lovely (she removed the salad from our bill). We had to ask for pita bread (surprisingly), but she did bring it out. I am hopeful that they were just having an off night, and that it's as good as other reviewers describe most of the rest of the time.

    It took about 30 minutes to get our cocktails. It was lunchtime and the waiter was doubling as the bartender. Also, I think they ran out of something and had to send someone to the store to pick it up. Then we waited additional time for our food. I really like the food and ambiance of this restaurant but they need to staff up more so they can deliver better service.

    Came here for dinner with a friend. Was a bit early so I sat at the bar and had a glass of Lebanon red wine, which was part of the happy hour. Not bad. We ordered the Lebanese sampler (2 each of falafel, kubbeh and bacon wrapped dates), hummus with pine nuts, baklava and rose infused flan. I also tried the other Lebanese red wine on the menu, just because I had never seen it on a menu before. Both were equally good. I occasionally come to Kurah's for lunch and am familiar with their dips, falafel and kubbeh, all of which I enjoy very much. The dates were sweet, as is expected, though not my taste. My friend really enjoyed them. The baklava was served with whip cream, which I found unnecessary, and was also quite sweet but not my preference in a desert. The flan had a prominent flavor of rose, which was a bit off putting for me. I will continue to come to Kurah because their savory foods are great.

    I have eaten at Kurah many times. My friend and I had lunch day after Christmas. While the food tasted good, I feel like we were taken advantage of... We ordered a hummus and falafel appetizers. Menu states 6 falafel. It arrived with 4. We didn’t say anything. Instead of ordering a separate Jerusalem salad and a lunch plate, we just ordered lunch plate which included a Jerusalem salad. We never received the salad. When the bill came, we were significantly overcharged. Very disappointing as I have always enjoyed Kurah.
