This restaurant was recommended by our hotel (Myers Hotel) and was within easy walking distance. It is a warm, cozy, and inviting place in what appeared to be an old home in a lovely neighborhood setting. A friendly gentleman out front was handing out small shots of vodka mixed with some sort of fruit juice when we arrived and when we left. The hostess was also very welcoming, but our waiter was less so. The food we ordered - red lentil soup, grilled eggplant, and the Jerusalem grill - was delicious, freshly prepared, and attractively served. Our soup came right out, but we waited at least 45 minutes for our entrées. From reading other reviews, this appears to be the norm on busy nights. I believe there were only 2 waiters for both the inside and outside tables, and the kitchen must not be able to handle a lot of orders at once. All of this probably would have been acceptable had the waiter stopped by the table to let us know we had not been forgotten, but he never did. He never came by to see if we wanted another beer or wine, and it was very hard to get his attention for anything. I rate the food and atmosphere 5 stars, but the service was no more than 3 stars. As long as you are prepared to wait, you will not be disappointed in the food at all. I highly recommend everything we ordered. There are several vegetarian options. The live piano music during the meal was a definite plus.
