The service is horrific.. I've been to a ton of restaurants in NYC and this is THE WORST SERVICE EVER. We had a 25-ppl b-day party?reserved and confirmed SEVERAL MONTHS IN ADVANCE. When I called ahead, their so called person in charge, Judy, said everything was ready-- b-day candles, menu, etc. When we showed up, nobody wanted to talk to us-- they looked at us as if we were thieves of criminals. The day before Judy said I can bring one acoustic musician. On the morning of the party, I called again to confirm, she said OK. So my musician came, but now Judy said liver music was not allowed. I wasted the money by paying a musician who was not allowed to play! It took forever for food and drinks to arrive. Judy said most of the waters did not show up. They promised us absolute vodka, but when we asked for drinks-- which took even longer to arrive than the food, they said they did not have the vodka they promised to serve. At the end, I asked them to give us a candle in a dessert, but Judy said there were no candles she said THE DAY BEFORE the candles are available. The tea and coffee were never served, but were paid for. Neither A SINGLE waiter nor Judy even once came up to our table to see if we needed anything. We constantly had to walk up to the bar/kitchen and request what we needed. The drinks tasted like water. Finally, someone left their cell-phone and scarf in the restaurant-- we were moving around so much, we could not keep track where we left things. They told us they never found either a phone or a scarf. I know 100% that the person who accidentally left her cell phone and scarf there-- definitely left them there-- as she made her last call that evening from the restaurant, and she came there wearing the scarf. The staff is rude, incompetent, SUPER-unprofessional, and simply stupid.. We were stupid enough to give $40 tip to Judy who actually RUINED OUR EVENING.

Cons: HORRIBLY UNPROFESSIONAL, RUDE, DISHONEST SERVICE

This is not the place for vegetarians, but overall nice atmosphere and good food. The salads were delicious. and I had some of the best salmon I've had in a long time.

I am quite a picky eater. I went through a phase where I was not eating meat. This was not the restaurant for me! The only thing on the menu I could eat was couscous and bread. The people who were with me swore the meat was delicious. I was happy to be there as the decor is quite pretty. They have huge door-windows that open to the outside world letting in a nice fresh breeze. I would like to go back and try the meat sometime.

We recently had a wonderful dinner here. I had a dish of stewed chicken with preserved lemons which was fork-tender, and it came with a delicious steaming side dish of vegetables which had been cooked with dried fruit, giving it a nice, sweet flavor. The waitress recommended we also try the short ribs of beef, which must be one of the best items on the menu -- they were incredibly tender and flavorful, cooked with a rich and sweet barbeque sauce -- we didn't leave a morsel on the plate! We had no room for dessert, and while there were a few offered such as tiramisu, in case you aren't savvy about kosher cooking, because this is a meat restaurant the desserts won't be made with dairy products, so we weren't sure how the tiramisu would taste. Well, we might try it on our next visit. Definitely recommended.

Pros: Delicious kosher food, especially recommend chicken with preserved lemons and beef short ribs

Everything about this place was wonderful. We ordered lamb which was perfectly cooked and tasted awesome. I find that most Kosher restaurants are average to good, but this has been the best I've eaten so far. The only drawback is that it's a little pricey.
