“good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

They moved to convenient place. And got more tables. But sometime still hard to make a reservation for a dinner.
Food is so so(not too bad), but good atomosphere. A lil bit pricy.
Recommend for a date, biz dinner.
Especially on Friday night they may ask you to stay only for 2 hours.(it's quite usual in tokyo though)

“Best mediterranean restaurant in Tokyo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I was craving for some mediterranean food but I wasn t looking for something in particular, i.e greek, lebanese, tunisian, etc. I saw a review on tabelog about Cicada so i went there with a couple fo friends. It was just the thing I was looking for...eclectic mediterranean food and an amazing wine list. The red Domaine des Tourelles from the Lebanon - if I remember well - was great...

“Very, very good..only 4* because it's a tiny bit expensive for what you get”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Had lunch here over a weekend. Happened upon it due to a good review on bento website. Ordered the Moroccan crab cakes and gnocchi. The gnocchi was fantastic, the crab cakes were very good not great. The flat bread was potentially the best i've ever had...their sister store Breadworks is next door as well. Will go back for sure...very nice, trendy type place and the staff was extremely good.

“Get in...get out please”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Never to return. A table of 6 rocking up to enjoy a meal, get told before we sit that we have only 2 hours and then we will have to leave? What?????? Nice one! Friends insisted to stay. Spending over a $1,000 between us, I felt like I was waiting for my execution. Horrible feeling. Hated every second. Make sure you know if you can stay, spend and enjoy before you sit - before they want to throw you out to fill the table with another round of people. Greedy greedy greedy.
