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.

While the food was definitely the highlight of the visit, the entree's where priced as much as a mid town high profile restaurant. The liquor list was lacking given two of us could not order drinks. Seating was rather cramped as every inch of floor space was used for seating, which was on skimpy furniture. While the chef was top rate, they could probably get better exposure in a higher end restaurant that would recognize their talents. Suggestion for restaurant is new seating and perhaps a little more room.

We loved the creative foods served here though some things were a little salty.
Be aware of that.

My friends had the lamb pot pie, i don't eat meat , but looked delicious and they said it was . Looks like a huge french onion soup bowl and they cut open the bread top and lamb is inside .

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

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.

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.

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!

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.
