We did not have reservations (about 7:30) but were seated in 30 to 45 minutes. Well worth the wait. We were seated outside in the courtyard they share with Gravy. It was a little cool given the breeze, but it did not take away from the great service and food. We had the wonderful pita, humus and mixed kabobs for... More

My wife really loves this restaurant. I must admit it's a little different for me but I tried it and it is great. I will go back again soon. They have good beer selection and lots of room.food is good and the hot pita bread is amazing.

We were there for a meeting which was in basement so food buffet style. Appetizers were the best. Probably would have a better liking of the food if could have ordered from the menu.

It is easier to review a restaurant when the drinks, appetizers, and entrees are paid for. Nonetheless everything I had I enjoyed. I wasn't noticed when I walked in late and joined my group at the end of the table, but still soon enough to get in a draft beer and enjoy some of the appetizers, especially the grape leaves....

My husband and I went for an early Valentines dinner on the 13th to beat the crowd. I had a cup of the Tomato Bisque, and the Sweet Potato Kibbee which was AMAZING. So different and artfully done. Here's their description of it: Fried dumplings of roasted local sweet potato blended with cracked wheat and onions, stuffed with spinach, red... More

This was our third visit in a year. Every visit was as god as the last. The Pita bread is scrumptious, The Brussels sprouts are excellent. The Kabobs are as good as one can get any where, The service was efficient and friendly.

First, the bread: fresh out of the oven Mimi pitas, lighter than expected. Lovely Mediterranean food: lemon, garlic, parsley. I'm partial to the chicken, served with rice and veggies. Interesting seasonally inspired versions of hummus.

We really enjoyed the food and service. A small negative was the noise level - why are so many restaurants so loud it's hard to have a normal conversation? We will definitely go back again and again!

Since I was there for a business meeting there were a lot of different food options that I would not normally have if going with family. As a non beef or pork eater I ate.vegetables and chicken, which were seasoned well. My wife eats everything and she enjoyed the beef especially. The food was so good I really overdid it... More
