Loved the food. It's like eating in a good restaurant in NYC or London. Nice decor. good location. Very popular.

“Very nice and very accommodating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Very nice food and very nice staff. We had a party of 18 or so and they took great care of us. The waitress recommended they just bring out menu items and we share family style. It made for a perfect arrangement as we got to sample a little of everything on the menu. The price seemed reasonable and everyone had a wonderful evening.

Can't go wrong here.

“Elegant food, good service in a civilized setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The food at Herbert Samuel is well enough known not to need specific praise from me. On two visits, I had excellent meals distinguished both by the ingredients and the presentation, nice wines, and efficient and courteous service. The dining room is pleasant and reasonably spacious, not too loud or too bright. Prices are in accord with the aspirations of the place: not cheap, but not out of line. If you haven't been here yet, you should go.

“Bad food, bad service, overpriced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Food makes no sense. My steak was covered in a pepper crust that killed any other flavor. Carpaccio for starters was mingled with betroot and covered in salt. Waitress was very nice but clearly over stressed to the point that she couldn't handle it.

“bad experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

On Feb. 27th 2013 my spouse and me decided to have dinner at Herbert Samuel resto, TLV. We were holding a present voucher, that we received from friends. As we told the waiter that payment will be settled by means of a gift voucher, he took the standart menue that was given to us and later on told us what are the four dishes that we could have in exchange of our voucher (worth a sum of 200 $ U.S.)

None of the proposed dishes suited our expectations: spear ribs and a fish.

We were disappointed and shall not return to Herbert Samuel resto.
