Waterfalls never lets me down -- I think I've probably averaged having dinner here (or usually take-out) once a week over the last 5 years. The food is always superb, and the ambiance keeps getting better. They really care about their restaurant and it shows!

Always great for delivery. Even better tonight with eggplants in season. The vegetable platter for 1 is my favorite (need to order a 2nd pita). Veg platter for 2 is great to order for appetizers when friends swing by.

The owner says he is new, for about one year now. I come here from Vancouver Canada (I used to live in the neighborhood) everyyear for a reunion. The former owner (an old woman) did good. (Good service, good food, & okay with BYOB.) The new owner is fantastic! The food is fresher, tastier, and better than ever. Order the two platters: meat & vegetable - it's a feast well worth it! You can ask for the pickled veggies and pepperochinis if you really need it while you wait, but you'll be satisfied enough with the platters. The meat is tender, the hummus and other spreads, delicious. He won't handle the bottle of vino, but he won't charge corkage either. It's a great place, I'll be back as soon as I can!

I took a date to Waterfalls this past Easter Sunday. It had been a couple years since I was there last. I had remembered this restaurant for great food, very good service, and reasonable prices. I had also loved the decor. I ordered the leg of lamb and my date ordered the fillet of sole. In times past, after ordering, the waitress would bring a basket of just baked flat bread and a dish of olives and hot peppers, along with whatever other little appetizers/dips one might order for the bread. This time, our 45 minute wait for the food was done with a glass of tap water. The waitress did not even ask about bringing those dips. About 20 minutes into the wait, a dish with a few olives and three little hot peppers arrived. Twenty minutes after that the waitress brought a plate with two flat breads which tasted as if they came out of a plastic bag bought at a grocery store. When our plates arrived, I thought I was on candid camera. My leg of lamb was burned through and through and dry as leather. There were, literally, black, burned, crumbs of the meat on the plate. I could not believe that this was even brought to the table. When I took a knife to the meat, it simply cleaved off rock hard pieces. I was hungry, and since I was with a date, I just smothered the meat in the humus and ate it. I asked my date how her fish was. She said it was very good. After eating what I would from the meat, I then cleaned up the rice and salad and the bread in order not to leave hungry. I wondered what had changed with this place. Ownership? The chef? I looked around and saw that only 3 tables were occupied out of the 8 available. One was mine. The other two had families with a few small children. I found it curious that on Easter Sunday, when restaurants tend to be full to the last table, this restaurant was half empty at 6pm. I was still hungry when the waitress asked whether we would have dessert. We ordered Turkish coffee and baklava, both very good. The bill was $75 which I thought was about double what I used to pay for similar meals there just a couple years ago. In all, I regretted going there and have no plans to ever go back. Right on the corner I saw a larger Middle Eastern restaurant, and across the street and down a bit, I saw yet another, both of which I will try the next time I am in the area to eat.
