What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.7

Taboon is one of the best restaurants in Hell's Kitchen, especially if you get down on Middle Eastern food. But also even if you don't.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

We were so happy with our evening at Taboon. The maitre d was so thoughtful and noticed a small note about my boyfriends birthday and sat us in a great table. The food was amazing, huge prawns over risotto and potato crusted sea bass. The prices are a bit high but the food is really good!

It was great but the service not so good. The server dropped off the check before offering coffee or more drinks or after dinner drinks, we felt like we were asked to leave the restaurant. :-(

Everything we ordered was delicious. The enormous shrimp were grilled to perfection, the maze were beautifully presented and well prepared, cocktails were original and complimented the food quite well. The service was unobtrusive and gracious. We’ll return without hesitation!

Very different from most Mediterranean restaurants. Portions are very generous – our waitress (after dinner) suggested that we just order one appetizer and one main course for two people, and that would have fed us well. The felafel appetizer was as good as we've ever had, crisp outside and soft inside. The beet salad was very substantial, a mixture of beets and other greens. The branding – one fillet – was tasty but not the best we've ever had, and the vegetables with it were outstanding (the potato only so-so). The chicken, served on top of a large oven-cooked bread filled with caramelized onions, was outstanding. The ice cream dessert was to die for, the sponge cake very good. They have a prix fixe menu from 5 to 6 but you have to ask for it, they don't promote it.

Lovely place. Wine was too expensive. ....especially for that ‘hood. If it was a few $ less, I wld have gotten a glass and they wld have made more $. Some restaurants think with money in mind only. Instead of making a few more bucks, they lost a few. Food was excellent and bread as well

Absolutely loved everything about Taboon. The bread is outstanding and the dips are amazing. I recommend the cauliflower as a MUST.

Unlike other NYC venues, the restaurant is quiet and you can actually hear your party's conversation.

The food and drinks are solid.

Every time I come to NYC, this is a staple piece. I went this year for my birthday and the food was phenomenal. Their bread with the hummus plate is amazing, and don’t forget the lamb chops! However, for the first time, I had their ice cream and it was literally the best ice cream I have ever had. I recommend this restaurant to everyone!!

We had a family dinner at Taboon and we loved almost everything we ate. The only complaint was my husband's entree. He had the steak and short ribs entree and didn't love the flavor. By far, the best thing we had was one of their special mezes, the crispy manouri. It was delicious. We all loved the falafel, trio of dips, zucchini cakes, cauliflower and crispy octopus as well. We were a large party (of 9) and the space was very cramped. I would definitely go back, but wouldn't go with more than a group of 6.
