Wonderful food, but it's a one-man operation, so just relax and make sure you are not in a rush

The food was Very bad. It tasted like it had been frozen and re heated. The restaurant was run by one single man, he was host, waiter, and cook. He had a bad attitude and limited what we could get off the menu. Restrictions that WERENT on groupon

Expect a small, neighborhood, owner managed limited inexpensive offerings of excellent ethnic foods. Conversation friendly. Wine offerings pricey! Location change may be in future.

No heat on in the restaurant. Two of the menu options weren't available. Food wasn't as advertised. We mentioned our groupon when making a reservation but were chided and then treated with a mean attitude after showing it with the check.

Great food! If you're going on a Saturday night call ahead to make sure you don't need a reservation. Although it doesn't say it's required, if it's too busy, they will not seat you without one. I absolutely adore this place. You must go!!!

Turn the heat on...everyone wearing their winter coats should give you a clue the restaurant is too cold! Service was way too slow. Owner/waiter just didn't seem to enjoy dealing with people...very rude, argued with customers, not friendly at all.

Food was nothing special. I have eaten authentic Lebanese food before, this food was just awful, every item had a vinegar taste to it. My guess it was to mask the real awfulness of the food. The owner/waiter was rude, arrogant and so full of himself. Will never be going back ad will never recommend this place. The negative Yelp reviews on this place were dead on!!

I called an hour ahead for a table because of the Groupon recommendation and they were happy to accommodate. Not long after my call their heat went out (which we didn't find out until we arrived). Although we had to keep our coats on through dinner the food was well worth it and the owner brought us extra appetizers and desserts in apology. I probably wouldn't want to sit through another frigid dinner but I would definitely go back again because it was a great experience despite the heat mishap!

The place was freezing it seemed the heater wasn't working and it was only one person to cook/take take of customers/bring food and all. We waited on the cold restaurant more than I wanted.
