Service
 
“Travel to Israel and back in one night” at this “must-try” Society Hill gem, where a “deceptively simple” , “ever-changing” small-plates menu is presented by a staff that “seamlessly glides around and takes care of everyone’s needs” amid “beautiful” surrounds; it’s an "impeccable” experience, but “prepare to spend money – it's not cheap.”

If I were to base the review on the service and the desserts this would be a 5 star rating. Easily!!! The service was excellent; thoughtful, attentive and personalized (they had our names on the menus since two of use were celebrating birthdays). The desserts were extremely good; innovative, great tasting, well-executed, well-balanced. So why only 3 stars? The appetizers and the entrees (as they were, primarily tapas-type dishes) were good, but not great. At times they felt one-note and primarily spicy. The music was also too loud and detracted from the experience.

I went solo, ended up at the bar. The bartender was a true professional, someone who really took pride in his work and the restaurant, thank you Gabriel ! The food was incredible. The wine was unique (ever have red wine from Lebanon ?) and dessert was like no other. To top it off, I Had a blast with the other patrons at the bar ! I’ll be back for sure.

The Turkish hummus was outstanding and our waiter was extremely professional and attentive. The desserts were out of this world. I was very impressed with their custard dessert. Highly recommend if you are ever in Philly.
