We were at Angelica's during the Passover holiday, yet the menu was extremely varied. The ingredients were fresh and flavorful, and included a few updated Jewish dishes - my husband indulged in a childhood favorite, Veal Brains, this time made with white roots cream, roasted tomatoes, cured lemon and fresh coriander. I can't give Angelica's an excellent rating because of 2 things: first, the kitchen didn't want to debone my whole roasted fish (at my request), and when they did, they left many bones in my fish (which came back with a "warning" via the waitress), and secondly, the sweet potato puree was saltier than anyone at our table could tolerate. I will say that the decor was beautiful and modern, and had a formal, romantic feeling.

This is a great restaurant if you want to splash out on a special occasion. Good food and service in very nice surroundings. Lunchtime menu is good quality price ratio. Evenings are more expensive but worth it!

My wife and I just returned from two weeks in Israel where we had several lovely dinners in fine restaurants, but this was the best. The decor is modern and inviting with comfortable seating and generous table spacing. The service was polite and professional and the food absolutely excellent. Fresh warm rolls were served as we studied the menu. We started with the hearts of romaine salad with chicken pastrami, which was delicious and large enough to easily share. For our main course, my wife had the seared chicken breast with polenta and I enjoyed the homemade papardelle with dried cherry raisins - it was exquisite. The wine list features a nice selection of Israeli wines. The Grill is very conveniently located within a block of both the King David and Dan Panorama hotels in Jerusalem.

Kosher food unfortunately isn't one of my favourites; so when one very late meal was taken close to my hotel, well, to say shocked would be an understatement. Food is sold on expectations, everyone knows how a piece of meat or fish and vegetable should be cooked; then presented and add ambience, getting these right and you've acheived a winning restaurant. So, we arrive after booking through our hotel to find the restaurant full of orthodox families enjoying an evening out. The waiting staff are young friendly and helpful. They have tasted the foods we are about to eat so making our decisions easier. So the deception... all the beef was served below medium and therefore pink inside and the creamy sauces without cream but various substitutes making you believe dairy products are involved. So look and taste not affected with your senses still being stimulated. The chef and the owner, a man I recognise from a previous life in London, arrive at our table to show their pride in their acheivements. They present free desserts and drink to promote their dishes and wow; more stimulation from an ice cream, chocolate fondant and a lemon meringue pie. Exceptional and kosher. Now I know what to expect from the kosher dining in London with no excuses. Well done.

I've been to the old Angelica many times and have always enjoyed it, so when I went there for dinner with my wife the other night my expectations were very high. I'm happy to say that I wasn't disappointed. Here are some of the highlights from our experience:

1. We each had an appetizer, entree and dessert, and our rankings for each dish ranged from very good to excellent. I would note that the restaurant has its own pastry chef, and the difference really pays off!

2. The service was outstanding! The staff was attentive, but not overbearing. What I also liked was that you didn't just have one waiter. Whoever you flagged down would wait on you and not tell you that they will get your waiter to assist. There was also a sommelier, something you rarely see in Israel.

3. They sold nearly every bottle on their menu (a very nice selection) in half bottle size.

4. The ambiance in the new restaurant was tasteful and elegant (though in my opinion, if they had tablecloths on the tables it would have added an extra touch of elegance).

Bottom line, if you are looking for a special night out, this is one of the best restaurants Jerusalem (and all of Israel) has to offer.
