My wife and I had a good time: the food was great, the music was nice, our waiter Jenney was lovely, the other staff were smiling and very helpful.
But -and it's a big but- there was one thing that has made this all experience to a huge living nightmare:
I was passing by the kitchen when I have heard one of the kitchen staff (I think it was the chef) shouting on one of the waiters. This yang man was shouting and humiliating her in front of all the other employees and guests. I tried to understand all what they were saying but my Hebrew is not that good. After that I haven't seen this waiter for a half of a hour- I think she was crying.
I could have seen in the other waiters eyes that this wasn't the first time that something like that had happened and that they have all experienced something like this in the past even more that once by this man.
As a human, father, husband and a employer I would NEVER act like this to one of my employees nor to a human.
the next time I will be staying at the Sheraton Tel-Aviv hotel and go dining at the Olive Leaf restaurant I hope I WILL NOT see this man working there anymore, because if I do, I will make a big U-turn and go back on my trace.
It's too bad that the hotel keep to employ people like him
Shame on him

Very warm and high quality restaurant with excellent service. A nice surprise in a good hotel. Around $50 which is low for the area for a restaurant of this caliber.

I took my mother to Olive Leaf for her birthday, and we both enjoyed the experience greatly. The food was delicious, the service attentive and the atmosphere was inviting. I wouldn't dine here frequently because the prices are on the higher side, but it's a great place when you want to splurge for a special occasion.
Too bad Olive Leaf is only open for dinner and not lunch!
