    Bacon wrapped dates and cocktails are amazing
  • Natalie W.
    Fantastic date spot or relaxed intimate setting for close group of friends. Hummus and crudités are fantastic but the bacon wrapped dates are a must order! The best I've had.

    This Upper West Side date spot embodies the epitome of romance. Rose petals, candlelight and cushions for canoodling spell a winner for twosomes looking to kindle some quality time. Read more

    Descend down the steps and be transported into another world - candlelight, running water, bricks and wrought iron. Saturday slow-roasted lamb special is fabulous. The fettoush salad is huge, good

    Cozy spot with great, inventive cocktails. I've been living in this neighborhood for 24 years and I had no idea this place existed…

    Beyond the Upper West Side's Gin Mills and Jake's Dilemmas lies this red-hot underground date spot, with melodic Middle Eastern music, piped-in incense, alcove seating and sultry lighting. Read more

    Delicious, thoughtful cocktails in a great atmosphere of exposed brick and candles. If you're hungry get the lamb cigars and wrapped dates.

    Though the drink menu does much to satisfy variety, Shahel’s Lamb Meatballs and Bacon Wrapped specialties are just two of the many delicious options available here.

    Yes, it's cozy, and you get to spend time in a romantic bunker (space is below ground), but the great food & cocktails are worth coming back for; try the Chicken saffron briouates & the date tart!

    Such cool atmosphere! Dark and lit by candlelight. There is also a really cool waterfall in the back. The food is awesome as well. I had the meatballs, fatoush and baba ganoush.

    Ambiance is the only plus. Drinks are okay. Food doesn't taste nearly as good as it sounds. Service super slow. Price way too expensive.

    Off the beaten path-down steps and down the hall-dark, cozy and very Moroccan. Conspicuous location. Mazza on the menu. Interesting drinks. Good place for two or twelve

    This is one of our most favorite (and hidden) and exotic lounges in Manhattan. It’s a great place for a romantic interlude over wine and hummus.

    Shalel does not do any advertising. They only get business via word of mouth. So consider yourself "cool" if you've been there and if you're reading this, go there if you wanna be with the "in" crowd

    The food is delicious and reasonably priced. Just beware of the waiter/bartender when he is on his period as he can be a little cranky. Won't ruin your experience though. Awwwesome cozy little place!!
