I went to lunch at Queen of Sheba to scope it out as a possible location for a friend who wanted to have an Ethiopian b-day dinner. The food was great, but the staff ignored me and was rude to me. After my meal, when the waitress was still gabbing with her friend behind the bar and refused to come give me a check, I went up to her and said, very nicely, "Hi, can I pay for my meal, please?" the friend whose conversation was interrupted said nastily, "What did you think, it was free?" and the waitress laughed at me. Needless to say that was my first and last trip. Too bad because the food was better than the other Ethiopians in the city.

This was my 6th Ethiopian restaurant. Food here was very, very good and atmosphere was very nice. I always order vegetarian so cannot say much about other dishes. The menu like in other Ethiopian (except DC) was limited and I would welcome more original vegetarian recipes. I definitely would love to try new flavors and little more zest. But what I had was delicious. Desserts - what desserts? Practically none and when I ordered baklava, they were out of them. The restaurant wasn't very spacious to say the least. I had a table by the restrooms where it was always crowded. Waitresses couldn't get to the table next to mine so I constantly had to move around with my chair. No big deal but would have preferred a different spot. I still highly recommend it for great food and atmosphere.

The best Ethiopian food in the city; need I say more. The service leaves much to be desired, but unfortunately this is not uncommon to Ethiopian restaurants. Nevertheless, I recommend Sheba wholeheartedly.

I really love this place (still not my favorite- Genet is)- can't really attest to the atmosphere, as I always order out, but the food is always very, very, good. Great deal for the quality of food you get.

This place was excellent. Reasonable prices and portions along with great tasting food. The service was very friendly as well. I would recommend any of the lamb dishes, all of them were good.

This is the best Ethiopian food I've had in NYC. It's much better than Meskerem (just about a block away). The food is great, the atmosphere is nice, and the service is very friendly. All in all, a great deal!

After falling in love with Ethiopian food at Cafe' Colucci in Oakland, CA, I was hoping for more great tasting food at Queen of Sheba. I was sorely disappointed. The veggie combo was sparse and the flavors were not distinct. The service was awful but the atmosphere was nice. My friend loved it but it was his first time trying Ethiopian food. Surely there has to be a better place in the city.
