Great brunch place. Yummy food and great wait staff!
One of my favorite brunch spots. Fabulous menu, consistently good meals. Try the French Toast and shrimp shakshooka!
Food and ambience are always excellent. It's one of my favourite place. Couple of times it got annoingly cold in the restaurant and we had to ask the server to cut off the air as we were freezing. Not the first time that this happens
Good food and great service. A but pricey and it gets very noisy.
Great place. Fresh and delicious. Knowlegeable staff. Nice ambience. Food is healthy, diplayed well and tasty. Had dinner with old friends and enjoyed our dinner choices. Bronzino was over the top. Appetizers of spreads worked well with the unbelieveable home made bread. Octopus appetizer was cooked to perfection. Ingredients in chopped salad made a nice combination. Can’t wait to go back
All around great experience. Food a drinks were excellent. Can;t wait to go back and fortunately we live in the neighborhood...
I want to eat all my meals here.
Sharing apps is the way to go
The food was generally very good with a just few missteps, including the special that two at our table ordered. They brought food out very quickly and there wasn't even enough room on the table to enjoy it. Also, they charge for bread, which seems outrageous since almost all the dishes are best enjoyed with bread. This is also a sort of expectation at a middle-eastern restaurant. Also, the tables are so close together that we were literally jostled by neighboring diners.
One of our favorite restaurants. Food is always delicious and the service and staff are so, so warm and friendly. Love the chicken dish.
The food has the authenticity of home cooking with the refinement of fine dining. Taboon is a place to celebrate or even just enjoy a special night out. This evening, we decided to do tapas style and share a few appetizers, an entree, and desserts. Amazing. All the appetizers we tried were delicious. The entree was hearty enough for two. And even tho we got individual desserts, we still shared (kind of...). I cannot say enough about the food. However, the star has always been the bread and dipping sauces at the beginning. It just sets the happy mood right from the start.
Great post show dining experience. Our waitress was very helpful guiding our selections.
The food was well prepared, fresh and showed very nicely.
The service was quick responsive and very friendly.
Outstanding service, menu was inventive and food quality superb, warm ambiance, overall incredible experience!
Fresh and delicious fish (sea bass and branzino). Hummus was tasty and the foccacia was amazing. Ambiance/decor was warm and welcoming. Service started great but fell off as crowds arrived.
Taboo never disappoints...food and service were excellent...we had a lovely meal of appetizers and 'tapas'...the bread is off the charts great as was everything else. especially loved the zucchini pancakes and baba ghanouj
One of the best Sunday brunches that I have had in a while. The food was excellent and unique. Servers were all friendly. Great mix of clientele. Perfect place for a pre-theater meal.
Always love coming here, but was put off by lamb bread being served cold and entrees arrived right afterwards wich were cold by the time we finished appetizer. Server was very nice, however and suggested a delicious new dessert drink.
We were seated on time which is always a plus. Bartender was friendly and knowledgeable - fun time at bar. Wait staff was attentive and accommodating. Food was delish. Shared appetizers including roasted califlower, house focaccia, hummus and 3 yummy dips. We order the fish (very tasty) and lamb in a delicious crust. We shared only 1 dessert but it too was so good. Look forward to dining here again!
Have been once before. I love the food. Great flavors. Great cocktails too. The atmosphere is charming.
Excelente comida y servicio
Excellent service and food
We had excellent food pre theater Saturday night. I ordered the cauliflower appetizer to share-it was fantastic and a generous portion for 2-it could serve 4 as part of an appetizer. Then I had the squid which was a light size plate that was delicious, too. My husband had the lamb on a chopped salad which was a nice size dish. We sat at the bar and the bartender gave us great friendly professional service. I'd definitely go there again and recommend it for the mediterranean/middle eastern style food.
Taboon is one of those rare places where you don't have to love Mediterranean Food to love it. And you have to have the sushito peppers. Perfectioni
Restaurant week! Loved it!
Excellent overall! As always
Consistently very good food. Went for restaurant week because the menu selection was great, one of the better menus offered by any restaurant during restaurant week. Only con is that the restaurant is so far west! Need to open another location more convenient and centrally located.
First visit (during Restaurant Week). The food was EXCELLENT! Tables were a bit close (but not unbearable) and I hate "restaurant lighting" but the food more than made up for it. Definitely coming back!
Love this place !!!
Normally a fan of Taboon but I set up a dinner for 3 couples and our table was not ready. They were apologetic, gave us prosecco while we waited, but it was uncomfortable as there is no waiting area, hardly unusual for NYC restaurants. We had a testy interaction with some blonde chick at the bar who felt we were intruding on her space ( I love getting rammed with an elbow in my back and then a sweet "Excuse Me!!"). I was exhausted and it didn't make for a pleasant evening at all since we had to wait 20 minutes for our reserved table.
My friends thought it was delicious, especially since one of them is a vegetarian (he was excited by all the delicious small plate options). The small plates trend can be delicious but there are many contrasting strong flavors, if you aren't into that then I'd recommend the entrees.
We loved the serene, hip environment. The service was friendly and food healthy and delicious.
It is incredible time every time we go there. The food is marvelous and the staff takes great care of all your needs.
I REALLY wanted to like Taboon after having quite a few people suggest it to me, but unfortunately our experience was not great. We had made a reservation a week in advance for 8PM for 6 people and confirmed it. Day of I get a call asking me if I could come instead at 8:30PM but I politely declined saying after a day of travel for my guests 8PM is the preferred time. Fast forward to us getting there and having to wait over 20 minutes past our 8PM reservation to be seated as they did not want to ask the guests at the table we had reserved to please move - mind you this is after I've been told that they showed up late for their reservation and had proved to be difficult so no one wanted to deal with them. Only offer we received during this very long wait time was to have our coats put aside for us - no complimentary drink or focaccia or (quite frankly) anything to try and rectify the situation. After being rushed through our meal (the food is VERY good), and an undeserving 20% tip already included on our bill, it took another 15 minutes for them to locate our coats and bags. All in all there are plenty of places in New York that not only have great food, but amazing service. Taboon could be wonderful if they treated all of their guests like VIPS but sadly I don't believe I will return as my $500 would be better spent elsewhere.
This is a tale of 2 restaurants. One is of the delicious food and warm ambiance of the restaurant and the Taboon oven. The other is the awful cold table not only literally in front of the door but also in the entrance of the Taboon service area where the dishes whisk by inches by your head and shoulders and dishes and silverware get thrown about assaulting your ears. The servers were warm and gracious, the management was arrogant, pretending to ignore the table situation and excusing it with "well you did make your reservation online today last minute" and bizarre words like "this is all part of our restaurant". There was no apology. It took a huge effort and groveling to eventually move us. Is this greed, ignorance, or is this the new normal where politicians have lead us? Please vote and choose another restaurant.
Very good food.
It was an awesome experience ! Hummus is superb and I truly enjoyed lamb chops!
Great meal. We went during Restaurant Week. I'll be back.
The staff was really attentive and kind on the phone and in person. They didn't rush us but made us feel comfortable, and even remembered my birthday was a dessert. The food was excellent: tasty, fresh, and interesting ingredient and spice combinations. I loved it!
