Having eaten at Taboon last summer, I had high expectations. Unfortunately, from confusion about the day of my reservation to the really stringy, tasteless hangar steak, to being brought the wrong cocktail, I was disappointed--and this was the entree I had had previously. Another member of our party ordered the short ribs--tasteless and a very small serving. The appetizes were good, although not as good as last summer, and the dessert, also a very small serving, was also good. Taboon's reputation has gone to its head or maybe its bottom as it is now gliding on it. I don't think I'll be back.

Took a friend here for his birthday recently , mid week,and was annoyed to be seated at the worst table in the restaurant.. .which turned out to be one of the best tables, albeit by the front door. Tucked away in a corner we were away from the main room/ cacophony,(they were packed ), actually able to hear eachother, and seated near the "Taboon" which warmed us on the freezing cold night. The service was impecabble, the fresh baked foccacia out of this world - or at least out of this country. We stuffed ourselves silly. The Tatsiki and the choog were amazing mixed and spread on the bread. The zucchini pancakes also rocked. The main courses were also quite good. Honestly I could have kept eating appetizers all night and not been unhappy. The word fresh does not even begin to describe the food. Very nice wine list too. Can't wait to go back. If you are able to eat dessert you are a champion!

I stumbled upon Taboon after driving by it in a taxi one night. From the car, the restaurant looked intriguing enough that I looked up the menu on menupages and decided to try it out with my boyfriend the following week. The food is absolutely delicious. As a vegetarian there are many small plates to choose from ranging from amazingly prepared hummus, falafels, zuchini pancakes, and creative salads. Of course their signature bread is so tasty. Also, try a glass of wine from their worldly list ranging from Lebanon, Greece, and more. Without a doubt this place is worth a taste!

Had dinner at Taboon last night with seven friends from work. Had the pre-fixe menu (mandatory for parties larger than 8) which left us very full and very happy. Drinks were good, the food was good (Especially the lamb kebabs and the branzino), the heraime was the weakest dish on the table. Desserts were very interesting and creative with twists on well known Middle Eastern staples such as malabi. The halva parfait is highly recommended. I would happily come to Taboon again. Great place to introduce people to high end Middle Eastern cuisine. Did I mention the amazing house bread?

My husband and I discovered Taboon about a year ago, and have been devoted ever since. It is our favorite New York City restaurant. The food is exquisite both in taste and presentation. The service is a delight, and there is nothing more to wish for from a restaurant. If you like prompt, friendly and ultra courteous attention on every level, this is the place to go. Taboon serves the BEST hummus I have ever eaten anywhere, and the house bread is peerless. Try anything here, it's ALL good, except for the felafel which is mediocre. Virtually all of the entrees are excellent.,

Taboon is probably one place that I can recommend to a friend without any hesitation. If you go, you must try its bread. It's fresh and delicious. It has an eclectic selection of wine which I like. I usually order a bunch of its appetizers dishes and share with my party without ordering entrees. It is a good place to have a date, celebrate a birthday or just enjoy good food.

This is one of my all time favorite restaurants. I come once a week. The bread is delicious. You get your very own hot loaf of focaccia straight from the special oven, called a taboon. Make sure to order the tsaziki sauce with your bread. The bar is a great place to sit for dinner. Very comfortable seats and a great view of the restaurant. Perfect place for a date. Very romantic atmosphere.
