I came here for a drink for a business meeting and the restaurant is very quiet - conducive to conversations. The bartender was very friendly and helpful and recommended a good wine. I did not have food here, but the menu seemed pretty standard fare. The restaurant is in the bottom of a large office building, so I am sure... More

We often go with clients and always enjoy the very good food and wine list. I find vegetarian options among the Middle Eastern/California cuisine and colleagues enjoy meats and fish. Nice touch with olive and herbs dip for bread. Never been disappointed. We have also had luncheon events on patio and small private dining room and we're well accommodated with... More

I met a client here recently for lunch, and was pleasantly surprised. The ravioli I had was quite good, and I liked the looks at least of the kabobs -- strips rather than little cubes. Service was OK, and things were just a little slow (I might be concerned at a busy hour). The price was quite reasonable. Would be... More

Found this restaurant while staying at Marriott across street. Just walking around and thought to give it a try. Very good Happy Hour prices at bar. Wish I could have enjoyed full dining room menu at bar, but ended up having lamb kabob and couple of drafts at bar. Price and taste was excellent. Will come back and eat in... More

Slow to get served. It took a while to get order, but the food was ok. Only went because it was across the street from where we stayed.

Faz put our large party in their foyer, which could be cordoned off with large screens from the lobby of the building in which they are located. It worked very well, and the food was great.

The options were all healthy, fresh meals. I had the beet and citrus salad. It was a delicious and refreshing generously sized salad. The others in my party had the different salads, and everyone enjoyed them. We were offered a complimentary taboulie (sp?) and pita, which was also very fresh. We ate inside at a booth. The inside atmosphere was... More

At a lunch reunion with colleagues, this restaurant provided a special ambience in a downtown neighborhood containing otherwise mundane offerings. The menu is not unique, but what it does it does well. The host seemed disoriented when i arrived 10 minutes early even though our table was ready. The service was quick, maybe a little too fast. My beet salad... More

Had a business lunch here with 3 others. The food was just ok. My ravioli was quite good, but the salads wth chicken that two of the others had were quite plain and not as good as they said they had been previously. There was a piece of plastic in one of them. Service was a bit disorganized, even though... More
