Made a reservation. The service was terrible from start to finish. Their burgers are very good, but one in our party ordered a Filet and after two bites did not eat the rest saying it was poor. I actually shared part of my burger with them. Drink refills never happened. We ordered dessert and it was 30 mins. coming out.

How can you enjoy a meal when the service is so bad. Actually, our waitress was very sweet and tried to be helpful, but she must have been constrained by bad management. It started when we first entered on a weekday evening, with not many customers. After waiting way too long just to get a menu, the hostess grumbled that... More

This venue has a nice atmosphere. We were there with a couple of friends. I ordered a certain dish but was given the wrong one. I accepted it to save time. After complaining we got free deserts which were delicious.

We wouldn't have minded waiting so long for the food to arrive if it had been worth waiting for. The 70 shekel hamburger was overcooked and the portions of the lamb kebab and chicken thighs were so meager that our friends had to go out for falafel after the meal. The prices were appalling for such niggardly portions. We will... More

Me and the wife (both hebrew speaking israeli's) decided to eat here, food and drinks were very nice and enjoyable, but. A waitress without announcement whilst we were eating decided to move our table the wrought iron legs scraping my leg and spilling our drinks. We asked to speak to the manager as we got no apology or acknowledgement of... More

We enjoyed dinner at Herzl. Our first waitress was very helpful with some food allergy concerns. After she left, the service was a little slow, but we all had good dinners. The menu had a lot of variety, which offered many choices for our family of picky eaters.

This restaurant is now called In Joy Herzl. We have been in Israel for 2 weeks and this was our best meal so far. The sushi was excellent. We also had vegetarian pasta, steak and a chicken salad which we all enjoyed. The service was friendly and helpful although occasionally a bit slow. We would certainly return to eat here.

Service was slow as molasses, plus they forgot one of our dishes, so we had to wait even longer for that one. Steak was tough, tasteless and full of gristle. Potatoes were cold. Couscous was much too salty and otherwise tasteless. Pasta dish was inedible because of way too many onions.

I took my wife to Herzl for her 40th birthday. The prices were very very high and we waited a long time for our food. What we received were two very small portions that were ok at best. We left hungry after spending nearly 400 nis. The waitress never even brought us our drinks. The worst part was the end.... More
