Upon arriving at Spoons, our delegation of 15 people, in Jerusalem on business, quickly realised that we were in for an amazing and memorable experience. This early judgement proved entirely accurate. Our meal at Spoons was simply one of the most gorgeous of our trip. It is clear that a great deal of care, effort and time is put into... More

Having dinner at Spoons was yet another memorable experience during our trip to Jerusalem. We were warmly greeted with hors d'oeuvres and wine, then treated to a beautiful roof top view of the Old City. The dinner was exceptional! Each course was prepared with care and served in a warm, home atmosphere. The wines served during the evening from the... More

Helia is a terrific hostess - she talks about the city and Shabbat traditions. The food is fresh and delicious; Helia had shopped that day! Would return in a minute!

One of the best restaurants in Israel. Spoons is located right in one of the Yemin Moshe homes and all the food is Kosher and great quality. Definitely if you can afford it Spoons is worth visiting. I was hear with a Diplomatic delegate so it was free for me but I heard that it was not cheap but you... More

We had a wonderful meal at Spoons to celebrate my nephew's bar mitzvah in Israel. The food was excellent. Everything from the appetizers on the roof overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem to the wide variety of delicious first course offerings, to the amazing entrees. It was one of the best meals I have ever had. We went with 8... More

Dear Amy thank you for taking time to write about your experience here at Spoons. Your family was very interesting, and I've already connected some of your group with their israeli professional counterparts . Spoons as you know is a lot more than a private dining salon. We connect people, culture, and make new adventures possible. Shana tova, thanks again,... More

I recently revisited Spoons after first visiting several years earlier. I had high expectations on my second visit and wasn't disappointed. The food was outstanding and my only regret is it was impossible to eat everything on offer. Add to this the awesome location, the divine wines and the generous hospitality of Hila and I'm hoping my next trip to... More

This was such a fun and delicious dinner in the privacy of the owner Hila's home. She mixes the night up with other people and the dynamics of people, food and stories makes for a memorable evening. Great wines of course and overlooking the old city makes for a must evening when in Jerusalem.

From the crispy bread that lay in the center of the table to begin the meal to the amazing basil sorbet to close it out, this was the best meal I had during my week in Israel. The lamb, in particular, was flavorful and tender. The service was excellent (read: I barley noticed them) and did not interrupt the very... More

the author of this review claiming to be from ramallah was never at Spoons. All the comments of restaurants in East Jerusalem are favourable and those in other areas of jerusalem, such as restaurant mahane yehuda and Spoons and Bardak are given poor reviews. The description of the view and other points is false. More
