    The drinks were good but our bartender was in a sour mood and the people there were high end D-bags. Better places in Soma.

    Entrees & apps are all excellent, their recipes authentic with a gourmet flair. Meatball appetizer is a must. Short ribs, lamb stew and lamb burger are A++. Baklava not too sweet & very good.

    Great vibe, great cocktails, great food. The Manhattan is not on the menu but they make a really good one, so ask for it (with Bulleit Rye).

    Believe the reviews, the meatballs and French fried rock. The veggie pasta was average. The dessert I had (their only non-dairy option) was light and refreshing. The customer service is exceptional.

    The food is good, but it's not a cheap place to eat. Casual, bar like atmosphere.

    Their menu changes often, but if you can get your hands on the saffron induced chicken breast with pickled almonds, just do it. Exotic.

    The kufteh tabrizi was on chef Matthew Accarrino's (SPQR) short list of dishes to try in SF. It was indeed great and vegetarian. Double points.

    Two lighter styled red wines worth trying (attractive prices too!): Librandi's '06 gaglioppo grape variety from Ciro DOC (Calabria) & Thevenin's '05 pinot noir from the Cote Chalonnaise (Burgundy).

    Everything is mostly wonderful, however if you're a foodie, skip the baba ganoush. You'll find 10 times better stuff at your local ethnic hole in the wall. ;)
