Helia is a terrific hostess - she talks about the city and Shabbat traditions. The food is fresh and delicious; Helia had shopped that day! Would return in a minute!

Cary F
Why is the owner so defensive that she writes such aggressive and harsh responses to anyone who gives her even a 3 point review? She even claims the negative reviewers didn't even actually have dinner at her restaurant. Because I had photos of my family in the dining room there, and even a copy of the credit card statement for $757 for four people (plus the $233 deposit I forgot to mention in my original review), I can disprove her claim that we didn't eat there, but seriously, what is her problem?

You will need to call and ask since it is a case by case issue. Every event is different type of food and so on.
