    We went to Fairuz yesterday with some friends. The waiter was very courteous during the whole dinner. However, the service, in general, was very slow, taking a long time to bring drinks, then the mezze, and main courses. The fries were not ready in time for the mezze and arrived after the main courses were served, which is when there was already a lot of doughy stuff to eat at the table, given that most of us took pide. Portions were smaller and prices have significantly increased since our last visit 2 years ago. This was a bit of a disappointment - to pay so much for so little food. We don't mind paying for more expensive food, but the quantity and quality should account for it - take Damas Restaurant in Montreal, for example.

    The food and drinks were all fantastic. The service was the only weak point in the overall experience.

    food was mediocre, it’s overdone mediterranean food which half the time made the dish worse. extremely overpriced for what it is. other than the food, service and atmosphere were great.

    SO delicious - if you've been thinking of it, just book it! We got the fattoush salad with fried halloumi, fried brussel sprouts, roz asfar, and the beef lahmajoun and pulled lamb pides - it just seemed to get better and better! There was a slight delay in getting our first drinks (they were busy, not surprised), but our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. I'm glad we sat where we did, it was so nice and cozy. We'd be back!

    We were looking forward to it but ended up having by far one of the worst meals that we've ever had in our life. Terrible value for money, especially the fattoush salad halloumi and roz azfar plates. It legitimately tasted like food that you would expect from a low quality/cheap fast food restaurant.

    Fairouz has always been one of my favorite restaurants, however the prices have jumped dramatically over the last few years. While I realize everything has gone up, I think that restaurants like this are taking advantage of this and being unreasonable. $250 for 2 appies, 2 meals, and 2 beers and a no-alcohol beverage is ridiculous!
