    Tavlin remains the most consistently good kosher Middle Eastern experience in the area. The atmosphere is that of a warm, caring proprietor who prioritizes quality and customer experience.

    We enjoyed the meal very much and the service was warm and responsive. The ambiance could be enhanced by a style makeover but this factor was not enough to spoil our enjoyment of the evening. Overall 4 stars. Recommended. We will eat there again for sure.

    Poor service. It's not much to check in with your table. Very frustrating to be completely abandoned.

    We had an excellent meal at Tavlin: delicious combo platter of appetizers, perfectly cooked steak shish kabob, crunchy on the outside smooth, inside fries and Israeli salad that was seasoned just right without excess dressing. We split an order of warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. We went during Sukkot and sat in the small sukkah. We reserved at an off time to make sure it was available. Since we were the only ones there, we had the undivided attention of the staff. The price was very reasonable considering what other nice restaurants charge. Will definitely return.

    We've been to Tavlin twice, and both times it's been a lovely experience. The staff is gracious and attentive, and their food is genuine Middle Eastern- everything tasty, tasteful, and deliciously flavored. It's just a level above your standard American eatery. My kids ordered fries, and even their fries were excellent! Perfectly sliced, salted, and crispy. Highly recommend.
