“Horrible salad, horrible restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2013

The worst I've had in years. Not what was advertised on the sidewalk signboard for $7.50 - tuna with capers and cilantro on a bed of fresh lettuce with tomato wedges and olives...NO capers, NO olives, WILTED lettuce and $8.95!!!! I complained about the salad, but they did NOT take it off the check and when I asked about the higher price, they said the $7.50 was for Monday - Friday, but the sign DID NOT say that! I should have taken a picture. And a coke was $2.75. Horrible restaurant. Tacky artwork as well.

“If you llike dirty tablecloths and bad food...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2013

this place is for you! We were having a late lunch and made a huge mistake by eating here. Our Panini's stale bread was not even grilled! The tomato soup had a good flavor, but would have been better hot. The waitress was very accommodating, and we felt sorry for her. There are a lot of other restaurants in the area... try one of them.

“Good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2011

We tried the taboule for an appetizer and were not disappointed with the shish kebab with a side of hummus. You can choose inside or outside dining near the sidewalk. The prices were reasonable and everything tasted good. The service was good and we never had to ask for refills.
