    The hanger steak, the lamb shoulder, and the shrimp appetizer is amazing! Their wine selection is short and sweet but all great.

    Israeli street food pita and roasted eggplant are must orders.

    Grilled branzino? More like grilled branzi-yes.

    The small plate starters are the best. Humus, eggplant, fried cauliflower, the Israeli street food plate, all amazing. Mains also great and the knafeh (middle eastern cheesecake) is incredible.

    Good food, very slow service, very small portions. There are better places in the area.

    That may have been the best steak I've ever had.

    Foods were not bad but not nearly as flavorful as one would hope from a place as well regarded, and pricy, as this.

    The skirt steak was excellent. However be aware that portions are generally small for the amount you pay.

    I came for brunch. The food was perfect and the service also good and fast. I had scrumble eggs with a mini quinoa burger. I wish they had put more eggs on it. Anyway it was delicious!

    The pita bread is as original as can be. Hummus was delicious- creamy. Also serve Lebanese beer which we must try especially the wheat!

    Burrata w/pesto toast, Patatas bravas, the charred broccoli, the Carmelized cauliflower, and the hummus were the real winners. Man I'm so full

    Great place to go for brunch! Delicious shakshuka as well as the cold appetizer plate (the madbucha was absolutely great!) but skip the banana bread pudding for dessert - it's not worth it.

    Just close your eyes and order away. Everything is great here. The steak and lamb chop entree were delicious. If you lift weights you will probably walk out hungry. ALL dishes are small.

    Cozy spot in soho. For dinner, the cauliflower appetizer and the Israeli street fair are a must, as is extra za'tar pita. Branzino is delicious. For brunch, I dream about the shakshuka.

    The Skirt Steak and cocktails were good, but the service was pretty poor - the place wasn't even that full.

    I highly recommend the Shakshouka and the Cauliflower! Both are vegetarian friendly but you can also add Merguez sausage.

    Everything was epic. Service, hummus, grilled calamari special was life changing, crispy cauliflower, and branzino. And date banana bread pudding. I can die now
