It's like going to an Italian restaurant and ask for Chinese food, what do u expect to get ? Falafel was burnt from the outside and raw inside , small portions , expensive compared to the quality . It's only good for people who never had any Mediterranean-Arabic food, since they got no reference .

Yes there are numerous Mediterranean food restaurants in the are, just as there are multiple pizzerias. Each one has there own unique blend of spices and presentations that some people like and others do not. So the bottom line with the Falafel Bar is to try it for yourself. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal and the spices like... More

I have tried nearly everything on the menu. This place has great food. Very fresh. We use coupons when we come here. But have never left disappointed . It can be a little pricey but again the quality of the food seems worth it. I have recently mastered the art of smoking my own eggplant which is bad for this... More

Fairly average Mediterranean food. Ordered Fatoush which came with chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, toasted pita and very good lemon vinagarette dressing. We added falafel to that order for a reasonable cost. Falafels were just fair. They had an unusual taste which masked the flavor of the chic peas...we've had better. Instead of grilled chicken, we ordered a side order of schwarma... More

We went there as a family in late evening. It was close to its closing time. We checked the menu to see if we can eat something. It seemed to be a restaurant with Mediterranean however some of their product has interestingly beer in that. We asked to have a menu that does not have any meat and alcohol. The... More

I have been to Falafel Bar many times and thoroughly enjoyed my meal each time! They have delicious food, a great menu and friendly service. The food comes out pretty quickly, which is convenient for a lunch break. After trying several different items, I would recommend the following (in no particular order): *Shawarma *The Three Sisters wrap: Hummus, gyro &... More

Food continues to be competently prepared. I had a falafal sandwich with house made cheese, fried eggplant in a pita. The house made green hot sauce is great. $7.25. A mezzanine platter for $10 allows you to select your favorites (I really love the babaganoush. ..good a smoky and garlicky. A app of falafal with cool yogurt/cucumber was delicious. I... More

The two most recent times at Falafel Bar (within 6 months), I've been disappointed. The staff does not seem to understand food allergies and even when I ask them to ask the chef about ingredients or methods of cooking I can never get a straight answer. In May 2015 I mentioned my food allergies when making reservations and when I... More

The ambience is dark and so long we were there, there was only once more table with guests. The... More
