The first time that I ate here I thought that the food was somewhat mediocre though certainly not odious or inedible, I just found there to be nothing remarkable about it. I decided that I would probably just stick to Nikola's since the food there is slightly cheaper, slightly better, and served in MUCH more generous portions. Today, however, I was downtown looking for some chow so I thought I'd give it another shot. Bad decision. I have never neglected to leave a tip until today. The food was not fresh and it was down right gross. They served me a tiny piece of bread that was cold and stale, the hummus was dry, bland, and crusty, the babaghanoosh was yucky and too garlicky, the ""spinach pie"" was wrapped in this nasty pizza dough that tastes like the crust of frozen pizza. The ""Lebanese pizza"" was also a little stale, not to mention bland. And the falafel was crusty and dry. Before I ordered, I thought the price was a little steep, but I assumed that I would have plenty of leftovers to take home (my wife and I can split a vegan platter at Nikola's and still take home leftovers). The portions were jaw-droppingly skimpy here though. Then to top it all off, I sat there for 20 minutes after I finished my food and was completely ignored-no check, no drink refill, nothing. I finally just threw some money on the table and walked out. Lebanese food can really be much better than this. The owner of this restaurant does seem like a nice guy, but he needs to get together a bit.
Pros: nice owner
Cons: bad, overpriced food
