We originally planned to go across the street but found the Desert Rose was closed for dinner. It is a surprise to read negative comments - maybe they were directed at the American food. (Sometimes I wonder if the negative reviews have a personal ax to grind.) The only odd thing is this restaurant's name. We ordered the Mediterranean food and were pleased with not only the quality but the prices. The Kafta platter and grape leaves were delicious. The seasoning is quite unique.
