Thumping music was way too loud. They did turn it down, but it was just a bit much. The musical genre did not fit the atmosphere.

The food came out quickly, we were seated quickly, and we had a good time there. The hookah was the best part, it was a little pricey.

Comfortable atmosphere, courteous staff. Food was very good, can blend Mediterranean and middle eastern with more continental items. Bronzino ( whole) was tasty. BYOB but they charge you $10 corkage fee. Would eat there again.

Our open table reservation was not registered at the restaurant but they immediately tried to accommodate by putting us in the front of the restaurant. We appreciated it but after sitting the restaurant ended up getting packed, no outdoor option and we were trapped with hookah smoke. Having sat down and ordered we packed up our food quickly and left. We really should have left sooner due to the capacity of the restaurant and lack of ventilation from the smokers considering we’re in the middle of a pandemic. I thought restaurants were meant to operate indoors at a reduced capacity. Food was good and servers were friendly but disappointed in how they’re managing during a pandemic.

They didn’t receive the reservation made on open table, however they were still able to accommodate my party.
Outside dinning- on the sidewalk, not the “patio”-was a little awkward bc we opted for hookah. We tried to be mindful of pedestrians. The apps and entrees were delicious, however it took about an hour for our entrees to come ( to be fair, there were 2 larger parties celebrating, so the kitchen may have been overloaded). All in all a 4 star experience.

The grilled chicken was very good. the land was okay but could have been more tender. the service was great. Not a long wait for seating or for food. a little on the pricey side.

Waiters should wear their masks over their noses, not just mouths. Music should not high volume and appropriate for a restaurant, not a club. Food was tasty but one dish served cold.. Clearly the kitchen forgot to heat it after preparing it earlier on the day.

Food was idk how to explain it but just felt a little unclean. They used way to much garlic and it smelled the whole house up when we took the left overs home. They have hookah tho

This was a Valentine’s date took my boyfriend out for dinner and hookah. Food was great service was great. We had reservations for 6:15pm when we got there it was completely empty and they were just starting to set up Valentine’s decor which I found odd (should have been done earlier prior to anyone’s arrival) we were seated outside Bc we wanted to smoke hookah which I found it odd since we seen pictures of where tables with hookah were in the main restaurant so not sure why we were seated outside but otherwise hookah was really good. There wasn’t any music in the outside patio but they fixed it as soon as they heard me say it to my boyfriend. When we started to leave the place had a lot of people already so be sure to make reservations. Will be back again.

Waiter was not attentive to our party. We had to move our table because of a bigger party that never came. Food was okay but not worth the price asked for. Wouldn’t be going back.

Pleasant place with many gluten free selections for those who are sensitive. Not a lot of finesse, but a nice local establishment.

Quite the find. Easy to walk by, but don't. Beyond the way too brightly lit front room is a hookah lounge that comes to life. We just came for food ( in the front) and couldn't rave enough about the service from owner Nancy through all of her amazing staff. Food was authentic and delicious and we were texting our friends about it from the table!
Last but definitely not least- they are the BEST gluten free restaurant we have been to yet with a completely GF- dedicated menu as well as a regular menu.

I had an awesome experience . I stayed til just about 3am. Its BYOB the liquor store is across the street. I arrive around 10. There were 3 types of hummus , flatbread, olives , pickles, tabouli salad , 4 appetizers (5 wings, fried cheese , lamb balls) Small sausage tomato onion platter, pastry desert, big bucket of ice, bottled, water, juice and hookah (if you would like ).. There were 2 singers, a D.J and a Belly Dancer. I had an awesome time i cannot believe how beautiful the music is . The artist sang 3 to 4 songs a piece . The DJ rocked out all night he only took a 2min break we was shocked and he played to casio type keyboards at the same time while singing back up...lol he was awesome. The patrons seem like family you can tell they all know each other . They really know howbto have a good time and support each other and it was good to see that. Overall trying different food was great i liked all of it . It looks intemidating at first but when you put it all together and try it, it made since and was awesome. I paid for a party package so food was included. I was tod $55 pp but it was $10 pp service fee and taxes so it ended up being $384 +/- ...... i wish i could of just ordered from regular menu thier dinner dishes look awesome.

Food was great. Service could have been better, but they only had 1 server and were apparently short-staffed so hopefully next time will be better. Our server was very apologetic and tried very hard.

...just to check the cook. Usually he/ she was pretty good but this time he/she burned the steaks and fish. Maybe was a new one or a on a spot replacement.
