Our experience at the renovated Colbeh was unenjoyable for a few reasons: (1) the restaurant was hosting a company holiday party, complete with a DJ blaring music at decibals so loud that regular diners could not hear each other talk; (2) the upstairs seating area is windowless, and the walls are bleak, unadorned, and uninviting; (3) the waiter paid us little attention. We had to approach the bar twice--just to get the check and then to pay it at all. Overall, the management missed the mark on creating an enjoyable dining atmosphere.

The service was attentive- they even have little wireless calling buttons on each table where you can press a button to call your waiter. The food is great and tastes homemade. The new restaurant has a very cool vibe, with high ceilings and 3 private rooms. I highly recommend this for private parties, birthdays and family get togethers.

it is sad that eventually all good things turn bad in this city. I have been a fan for years, i have been to all their locations and tried most of their dishes. I was excited about this new location but i soon realized that the basic reasons why i loved colbeh have drastically fallen. The waiter had a very poor attitude and the food just didn't taste the same....what a shame

I am shocked that there are any bad reviews of this restaurant. I had such a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is amazing! It's romantic, elegant, cool, chic and all tables aren't actually on top of each other. The plate of pickles, hummus and olives was a very nice addition to the normal just bread or pita basket. The hearts of palm salad was delicious, flavorful and generously portioned. The dinner I chose was Kebab Barg was succulent, flavorful and perfectly done. I had the hot chocolate souffle for dessert, which was also delicious although not the best one I ever had. I am so happy I found this place and am proud to bring my kosher and non-kosher friends there.

I've been to Colbeh's new spot twice so far. The food is okay. They start you off with a platter of olives, dill, hummus and pita. It's about what you'd expect. Then they serve you some burnt rice and beef, which is apparently a custom, but doesn't taste good, and I've never seen anyone finish a bowl of it. Don't bother getting a wine, they have no wine list. They expect you to walk to the back, stand in front of other people dining, and make a wine selection through a window into their cellar. For some reason, the waitstaff and hostess think this is normal. Don't bother explaining normal restaurant customs to them - they won't listen/understand, so it'll be like talking to a brick wall. They're platters are a step up from the Halal carts on the street. The meat is pretty fresh, but kinda dry. They serve you food in this small rectangular plate, which makes you spill rice for the first 10 forkfulls. I probably wouldn't go there again unless I was forced to by a friend who keeps kosher. I imagine that's 95% of their customers. Overpriced and over-rated.

Colbeh's new location (across the street from the old) features a lovely restaurant and excellent private facilities for group dining. Food was excellent-well prepared, tasty and attractively presented. Service was outstanding. They worked with us to make the evening perfect for our group. Highly recommended!!

We have been visiting Colbeh for years now and ate in the NYC, Roslyn and Great Neck locations. Food is always hot and delicious even when take out. They always include plenty of extras too. Service is impeccable and worth every penny. We love it and you will too.
