Made us feel at home

We are from the Westside of Los Angeles and when I say it made us feel at home I mean it could easily be in Weho based on food, atmosphere and clientele. If it were in LA my wife and I would be regulars. Prices are fairly reasonable, food quality is outstanding and so is the preparation. Reserve... read more

I have to say that I was in many "bistro style" restaurant all over the world, but this one is a really amazing. It's not that kind of French bistro what you maybe expected, but believe me, it's really cool. Deco style and music reminds american fifties, so it's not surprising that you can hear Frank Sinatra's songs or Louis... More

Really trendy restaurant with a fun vibe (not too loud) and absolutely delicious fresh food. The favorites were the caprese salad, steak and burger. Creme brûlée was just ok. Great efficient service. Highly recommend for a night out in Tel Aviv on Rothschild!

We were brought there by a local citizen who knows his places: the place is fully packed every day and serves delicious (mostly Italian) meals at a reasonable price with friendly service. It is however the ambiance and great vibe in this place that should bring you here. Drinks are great but bit expensive. Make sure to make a reservation... More

Reservation was available only for 7pm, we left 8:45 and the restaurant was still empty. Food was really expensive, poor and below expectation. Wine was expensive, OK and below expectation. Service was good. Ambient was also good. If you want to be seen it might be a good alternative, in case you want good food you may look for another... More

Hands down this was the best bar/restaurant I've been to in Tel -Aviv yet. Our concierge at the hotel suggests this place and boy was,he right! The bar scene was amazing and I have to say I had the best Cosmopolitan ever made by Shlomi, who was also the best Bar Manager...Shlomi made sure our drinks were perfect and was... More

We went there for dinner at 8 pm and asked to sit outside. The hostess told us all the outdoor tables were booked for the evening, yet all were empty. We were told we could sit at the bar, but had to be out of there by 10 pm. We asked the bartender for a drink and she said she... More

The Social Club is the place to go. Great food, great drinks, both straight and mixed. Young, skillful staff who try to create the greatest night out for you. Lots of beautiful people everywhere. One bit of advice: book in advance! Otherwise, you cannot get a place - everything is reserved, even the bar seats.

We had dinner at this place during our trip in the area, there was a choice of ordering a-la-cart or alternatively, take the 2nd option and let our host order for us... we opted for that. We also said that we would like just light serves, so we got a selection of starter dishes instead of a main course.... Very... More
