My husband and I had lunch at Arabesque. It was a very pleasant experience for us both. Staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant sets the perfect ambiance and our meal was the star. We ordered the appetizer sampler to begin our meal. The hummus...More

I wasn't expecting much. Columbia isn't a mecca (pun intended) for good food. It was a very pleasant surprise! The hummus was the best I have ever tasted, along with the Damascus bread. Everything was fresh and delicious. I had the Hummus wrap sandwich, my...More
