We were recommended to this place by my wife's daughter. Since she is batting 100% with recommendations, we were thrilled to find a new place. From the moment we walked in, we felt right at home. Our waiter, Jamie, was attentive, helpful, and also very funny during the whole meal. he took great pride in the quality of the food... More

We sat at the bar (based on the recommendation when booking our reservation) and it was such a treat. We were taken care of by the bartender/waiter and, besides being steered toward some of the best food we've ever had, we were also repeatedly given shots of alcohol (on the house). Nothing that we ate the entire evening was less... More

Started on the wrong foot, although we had reservation almost 2 months in advance the hostess tried to sit us on the bar ( which is the right place to be in this restaurant) but in the section where the waiters take the food and service... It took too much of an argument until we got replacement sitting to use... More

An open kitchen where you can watch the chefs cooking your dinner, loud funky music like in a bar so you have also to talk loud to make yourself understood, and a great array of waiters inviting to arak shots every half an hour ... These are the main features of this stylish and modern concept restaurant, quite different to... More

A well known and may be locally famous restaurant. It seems like we were lucky to find a vacant table yesterday evening without reservation (two persons). The place is dark ( so it's not easy/pleasant to read the menu card) and quite noisy(so having a nice ,calm conversation is a challenge) but on the other hand there is the food!... More

Amazing place! I highly recommend going for both the food, drinks, atmosphere and service. We had a blast and LOVED with the music played and the chefs and waiters would encourage dancing and singing. What an amazing hidden gem!

This restaurant is a chef-restaurant, usually one would imagine a large and quiet restaurant with very quiet waiters assisting the service. Well, in this case, it was quite the opposite situation. The Restaurant is small, located near Machaney Yehuda market and during all our stay there was a very load music. The waiters were very helpful assisting us (with a... More
