Soft furnishings, floor and ceiling mean the restaurant acoustics are conducive to conversation, whether between a couple or a large family. This is a place for a relaxed dining experience, where the chairs are comfy, drinks come first, entrees are followed in time by the mains and the waitress was always nearby for something else. The food was delicious and... More

The service is very slow. Parking is a nightmare ... They have no valet. The decor is very dated. The food was good but not great. The hummus and falafel apps are wonderful, but the dinner plates are average and not worth the prices. The kids dinner plates are not worth getting.....save your money.

We were starving so the waitress suggested we start with their hummus.It was divine.Typically decor in arab restaurants is dark and garish so I was surprised to find a more fresh look with light yellow walls and a more subdued arab theme throughout with plenty of sunlight streaming thru the windows instead of the typical cavelike ambiance.The room has ample...

My husband and I come here frequently for lunch or dinner. The waitresses have been around for years and the place is operated by a family from Palestine so the food is authentic. The hummus is a favorite. We always order it with meat which adds a special touch. The babaghanoush, cooked kibbe and raw kibbe are also very good... More

Adding miles traveled our family exceeds 3 million miles. We all like Midle Eastern food. Around us there are about 7 that we could choose from. The restaurant could use a makeover. But the food is excelent. That is why we have the cravings for good Humus, lamb and the Kebabs, this is it. With a more beatiful decor they... More

It is not fancy of tastefully decorated, I will be honest. It could use a make over, but the food is VERY good. I have been to several middle eastern restaurants, but I keep going back to Tierra Santa. Great hummus, almond rice, and lamb. Moderately priced and very nice servers. They have a lunch buffet that is a great... More
