I used to have a favorite dish that I ate here before it closed - fava beans with foccacia as well as the amazing fatoush salad with cashews and cheese. I am not sure why it closed. What a bummer!

I like the atmosphere at this place; I like the quality of service; I like the design. Food is not always the best comparing it with the high prices.

Charming place, good food, very pleasant service. There is a very pleasant walk to get to it on former railroad tracks that have been converted to bike paths and walkway.

Colony is in the CinemaPlex by the King David and is a sleeper in terms of quantity, quality and value. Had the chicken schnitzel, wow! Spouse had the ravioli and was pleasantly surprised with portion and flavor. The staff were attentive and helpful in wine...More

The food is really excellent, waiters are friendly. A bit noise place due to loud music. A bit hard to find but let that be part of the fun!
