16 of us celebrated a milestone family birthday on a recent Saturday evening and it was truly a wonderful experience on all levels. The prix fixed appetizers and desserts were perfect and being allowed to pick from main menu was great. The food was delicious and the pretty setting and inviting, helpful staff made the evening perfect. We're looking forward to going back soon!

This neighborhood classic has made a welcome return after a kitchen fire. The flavors are fresh and Mediterranean. The atmosphere is cosy, though a little cramped - it's not a small restaurant by NYC standards, but the tables are packed in. But the flavors aren't the only thing that's fresh. The prices are too, considering that the portions aren't very generous. Eat three courses. You won't be uncomfortably full. The only thing that really puts me off here is that the food comes searing hot out of the oven, just as it should be, and is served on a cold plate, just as it shouldn't be.

My friends and I went to Taboon for my birthday. The hummus appetizer was good and fresh. The food was good but not great as I anticipated. My branzino was well done but overly seasoned and a little oily. My friends lamb turned out to be lamb meatballs-a very small and over priced, disappointing meal for a man. The dessert we had was a thimball full for a very "rich" price tag. Now perhaps the restaurant had been over hyped but I did expect better. The food presentation was just OK. I understand eating well but this was not quite there. Our waitress was very accomodating and not overly attentive as some higher end waiters can be. I'd give this restaurant one more chance as it is one of my friends favorite, but after eating there, its not mine.

Myself and 5 of my friends recently went to Taboon. Most of us were of Arabic background so already we had high expectations. The food was delicious! Everything was extremely fresh. The service was great and the atmosphere was cool as well. What made it even better was that it worked out to be pretty reasonable for a big group. I would highly recommend this hidden treasure!

Perfect for couples and big groups as well. Its off the beat and path. The service was great. The wine was delicious and the food was different and yummy. I got the lamb oso buco which was to die for. We got hummos, bread and kobe as well. I highly recommend it. It was a bit pricey, but if you go with a lot of people you can share. The portions were generous. Its worth it to make a trip to 10th Avenue for this place.

Wifey took me for my birthday 5/11/07 - i was impressed with the room, the service, and the food. Ate some kick ass Hummus, Falafel, and Kube. The breads we're amazing. Nice diverse wine selection tho the by the glass selections were limited. We shared a chicken dish for the main course - it was the only disappointment of the nite. Stick w lots and lots of apps - and eat much bread.

Got there on time for our RESERVATION was told it would be another 'few minutes' numerous times. Almost left but didn't due to the hostess, who was very nice and friendly and apologetic but ultimately couldn't get us a table without a 40 minute wait. Our waiter was a nut job. Constantly trying to sell us. We were there we waited, just relax. If I want another drink I'll let you know. I'm well aware when I need something, that's why I'm at the restaurant in the first place! I must say the food was incredible. The lamb and short ribs were amazing. Our appitzers were equally delicious. The shrimp and scallop dish were unique and very tast. And the foccacia was tremendous but way overpriced. All in all I'd go back for the food but probably sit at the bar.
