“Since the day they opened - still the best Mediterranean in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

I first had dinner at Sinbads the first week they opened. For several weeks it was always easy to get a table but then a review in the D&C quickly filled the place. Even though they expanded, the food and service (great prices too) have been exceptional. We make sure to go at least once a month.

“My summer favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

A great place to do some people watching and enjoy some fresh mediterranean food. The selection is wide and everything has always been fresh and well prepared. A great choice if you're looking for something a bit healthier than most places.

“A park ave favorite.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

I'm writing this review after going to Sinbad's more than 5 or 6 times now. I have never been dissatisfied neither have I been blown away.

Nice location on Park Ave if you are craving Mediterranean food. Their indoor seating is sparse but comfortable. Outdoor seating is available and enjoyable when the weather is good but the chairs are uncomfortable and the tables precarious.

Service has been decent when I've been there and food came promptly.

Hummus tastes rich and flavorful and serving size is good. Delivered with triangles of pita bread which you will enjoy dipping in the hummus and they will be happy to bring you more when you want it.

Falafel is dry and flavorless the couple of times I have tried it. Will not order again.

I usually go for the gyro pita or any pita with beef or lamb. The flavor is very good with a nice amount of sauce and meat. The pita is warm and slightly toasted which is how I like it. The size is enough if you are planning to snack or lunch but you might want to order something extra if you are having dinner and have a good appetite.

The big plates/entrees are mostly Greek salad with your choice of meat on top served with a delicious olive oil based dressing. I thought I'd still be hungry after eating a "salad based" dinner but I was wrong. It tasted very good specially with the tender pieces of lamb.

The prices are very reasonable and affordable.

I personally like Sinbad's much better than Alladin's both in terms of food and service. Continues to be one of my most visited restaurants in the Park ave area.
