    This restaurant is CLOSED! It accepted my reservation and when I showed up, it was shuttered. I has to scramble to find a place for dinner in time to catch a show.

    The food was fantastic. So DELICIOUS ! We were running a little late for our reservations so we called to let them know. They still held our open table reservation with no questioned ask. Look forward to eating there again.

    Very good food with adequate portions (except Israeli salad). The two chicken dishes were tasty, with some unusual flavors (mashed potatoes with a hint of coconut). Service was good and the food came out on reasonable time.

    The food is awesome and the ambiance superb. I had originally had an awful experience with a horrible waiter who treated me like garbage. I walked out, but the waitress/greeter reached out to me and resolved the issue. She was wonderful and saved my evening. Shows what good customer service can do. I'll go back again.

    Owner/manager of restaurant was extremely rude and I would not recommend the restaurant. Food was mediocre at best. Music level was excessively high. We had requested music to be turned down, as restaurant was at the time, empty. Manager was extremely rude and refused. We suggested he turn music down until other patrons came into restaurant,(and then turn up again) again he refused. Only after we told him we were posting his rudeness and poor attitude on line, did he turned the music down and suggest we change tables.

    Excellent food including the chicken schnitzel and tuna which my husband thought was one of the best he's eaten and delicious desserts. Attentive and friendly service, good value in a casual atmosphere. Pleasant background music which wasn't too loud.

    I had a great meal with friends at TLV--none of us observed Kosher but it just happened that we went there for brunch. The service was attentive but patient, the space was comfortable, and the meal was top-notch. Even the house-made hummus was remarkable--I even doggie-bagged it to go. Will definitely return again.

    The Bolognese hummus was to die for! My companions ordered the Warm Chickpea Salad and Mediterranean Red Chicken and were equally delighted. So glad this place has joined the neighborhood. I will be coming back again and again!

    We did not know about the daily specials until we left the restaurant. Wait staff did not mention them nor are they listed in the menu. Do find out as my friends would have changed their order had they known.

    FANTASTIC Israeli food. Chicken kebabs with rice and smoked chili flake tahini was one of my favorite Israeli meals I've had.

    The owner is an Israeli character. The food is delicious. The ambiance leaves much to be desired but the lighting fixes that. The price is right and the hummus is great. Love having this restaurant in our neighborhood.

    Another Med spot? Another Kosher spot? Nope. This is not "another." The food is delicious and distinct. The standards like hummus and pita are first rate. The selection of apps and entrees is mouthwatering on paper and to the tongue. The desserts are wonderful and rival those at any top restaurant. Loved the chocolate souffle! Loved the kadaif! (and basics like baklava were first-rate).

    The owner is very friendly, we first started with whiskey mojitos at the bar that he made for us than moved to a table. The place was busy and the service was attentive. We ordered the falafel and hummus app which could use some more spices or lemon, but came out fast and fresh. I got ribeye entree which the green carrots are a nice surprise, as well as the steak is a large portion. We will be back.

    the heat was broken for at least 2 nights during the coldest weather in decades. they had a couple of electric heaters going. Should have left when we saw everyone eating with their coats on but didn't feel like finding another place. Why they were even open is the question. To make matters worse the food was really, really bad and overpriced. Not even a free cup of tea to warm us up!

    The food is great from the appetizers through dessert. I wish the chairs were more comfortable.... and it's cold in there. But otherwise, well worth it.

    Pros: Excellent food with some imaginative dishes. Friendly, hard-working staff that aims to please Cons: Too noisy. It's a young, enthusiastic crowd and I overheard someone else complain about the noise level. I would suggest turning off the background music. The music was unnecessary since the patrons had plenty to say to each other. Do something about the excess heating which constantly switches on and off. Instruct staff to bring silverware before the food arrives so patrons don't have to wait or resort to eating with their hands.
