Arrived late afternoon/early evening. Restaurant almost empty. We were a party of three without reservations. They told us how long we could stay and were slightly rude as they were booked. We should have left. The food and service were excellent. The hostess should find...More

Most delicious food - great Armenian- Lebanese cuisine. A true adventure for every foodie. The restaurant is usually packed and pretty loud therefore I do NOT recommend it for business dinners with more than 3-4 people. I tried and it was impossible to hear each...More
