If in the area, a great place for dinner! The focaccia is a must! Pasta and salads were amazing as well! Chocolate dessert delicious!

We were there in a bigger group for dinner. It was a good atmosphere with good food. Loved the artwork..local artist. Recommend for a feel of the heart of Jerusalem.

I went here last week with 9 friends, and we all enjoyed our experience. We made reservations before, and I'm glad we did so we could have a cozy table to the side. The focaccias we tried were piping hot and delectable. We all had different main dishes (steak, pastas, pizza, sandwiches) -- there was not a single bit left... More

The service was of the management was if they didn't want anyone to come. Missing dishes, long waiting time and the food was very bad. Used to be better.

Their speciality is the focaccia bread. It is different from the Italian focaccia. This is massive and can be shared by 2 people . It is served with sun dried tomatoes and Mozarrella.

It has been at least 10 years since I last ate at Focaccia bar, so it was essentially a new experience for me, as everything was different. The menu seemed interesting and varied, trending towards the Italian cuisine, but contrary to my first impulse, I did not have a Focaccia... Instead I had some chicken with very smooth mashed potatoes,... More

They have excellent hamburgers, but I loved their pasta dishes. Very large portions and the price was pretty reasonable!

We waited more then 25 minutes outside after we had a reservation. We were disappointed of the bad service. The food was good though.

Over the years, Focaccia Bar has been one of my favorite restaurants in Jerusalem. The service here has become so bad, I think that yesterday's visit to Focaccia will be my last. I always liked to have business lunches here as well, but now taking any guest to Focaccia Bar has become an embarrassment. There is no excuse for the... More

The food was good. We enjoyed several courses. Focaccia bread with spices, fried eggplant, ravioli, salad, another pasta appetizer followed by lamb and chicken. Focaccia Bar has a nice wine list including South African pinotage not always available at home. The restaurant was very busy this Saturday. The weather was awful and stormy and the roof was slightly leaking. They... More
