Kitchen was slow - there was some sort of a problem - and our server wasn't fully on top of the situation

I do a lot of cooking myself, and make my own home made falafel, hummus, baba ghanoush, and stuffed grape leaves, which were all on the sampler platter my date and I tried. Their grape leaves were comparable to the ones I make, but the other items paled in comparison to mine. They were quite flavorless and nothing special. We tried Sababa once before (also with a Groupon) and had a good experience. We wanted to try it again, and when this Groupon offer came up it was the perfect opportunity. I don't think we would return, though.

Again, just a wonderful experience and can't wait to return. Hopefully the weather gets nice soon so the patio can open and I can smoke hookah outside!

From Our Editors

When Sababa's founder and head chef, Ed Wahhab, isn’t whipping up a homestyle menu of Middle Eastern dishes, he can be found in the dining room reading diners' fortunes in the bottoms of their cups of Arabic coffee. Ed’s banter and his love of card tricks create a sense of camaraderie that fills Sababa—Hebrew and Arabic slang for "awesome"—as patrons settle in at the bar, puff strawberry-daiquiri-flavored hookah on the patio, or sample housemade hummus and falafel.

Putting a modern American slant on traditional Mediterranean cuisine, the kitchen flavors beef sliders with kifta spices and creates nachos with pita chips, feta and cheddar cheese, lemon tahini sauce, and a medley of garbanzo beans and vegetables. Bartenders pour wine, crack open bottled beers, and mix up specialty cocktails, such as a manhattan with cardamom and a French martini, whose blend of Chambord, pineapple juice, and vanilla vodka is served in the traditional French way, by a weeping clown.
