I made a last minute reservation for new year's eve dinner and our experience was amazing! It was our first time and it did not disappoint. Our server was lovely, we got a free glass of champagne to celebrate, the food was incredible and the place looks adorable!

Our first time at Nuba and we all had a good dining experience. The Rack of Lamb was excellent. Our Waitress was pleasant and attentive. Overall, it was very good.

Always a great experience-
Fantastic service and delicious food!
So many vegetarian/vegan options. We prefer the lunch menu over the dinner menu.

Always happy when going to Nuba!

I excpected more… After reading glowing reviews on Opentable and seeing beautiful pictures of the restaurant, I expected an impeccably clean, beautifully designed interior, outstanding food and lovely ambiance suitable for a stylish meetup. What I experienced was a shabby, old sandwich shop with good alcohol… The food was bare minimum - supermarket bagged lettuce as salad, cheapest, tasteless tomatoes, don’t get me started on the pita (worst possible quality). We felt uncomfortable in the tiny space that felt dated and shocked that they even take reservations for this type of a restaurant. The brightest star in this whole experience was the service that was attentive, friendly and fast. Almost like it was supposed to be working at a different restaurant. This is a glorified sandwich shop that will disappoint anyone hoping for an exceptional experience.

Place closed at 9, which they didn’t give us the heads up and let us order a bottle of wine and a lot of food right before 9 and proceeded to ask us to leave, giving us a 10 minute deadline. We ended up having to take all of our food and wine home at 9:10. They usually close at 10 so giving us the heads up that that night they were closing at 9 would have been appreciated.

Went for some good Lebanese food and got it. They had a special consisting of cod and risotto, and gluten free. Quite delicious! The partner had a half roasted chicken, which was tender and juicy, and quite generous in proportion. Overall, a very good experience. Decent enough wine selection as well.

The male server that checked the vaccination status was unnecessarily rude to my friend’s mother. She provided her proof of vaccination as well as ID; however, I believe she said something about preferring not to give her ID. In any case, even if someone raises a concern that won’t be accepted, the polite thing to do is just acknowledge her concern but gently say that it is required to dine. To abruptly interrupt her and say, “Mam, if you don’t provide me this I will have to ask you to leave” is very intentionally ruining our dining at ambiance. If you are trying to deliver exceptional dining experiences (which I understand may not be your goal), your staff should be better trained at dealing with objections in any form.

A wonderful restaurant with fantastic and pleasing staff. The food was excellent quality and taste and for 4 of us with drinks, it did not even come close to breaking the bank. The best recommendation; we are returning for another great meal.

Atmosphere is nice, food and service very good! The only thing I would say is that we ordered the garden falafel which was delicious but a little disappointing that there was jus a tiny slice of avocado. It was more like a garnish but listed as served with hummus and avocado. We had a chuckle about it and really enjoyed everything! We will return for sure!

The hummus and baba ghanouj were very good, as was the olive sampling. However the main dishes were too intense for me. Being a Canadian of European descent, the spices were unfamiliar and too powerful, overwhelming the food.

server was very helpful and gave a great recommendation to get the "Le Grand Feast" as it was totally worth the price and you got to try a variety of things. i greatly enjoyed the décor and ambience. it gave a very personal and intimate feelings, great for a date night or with a small group of friends. got full very quickly and became loud, but that's due to other customers. overall great experience, recommend trying this place out at least once! so many GF and Vegan options

Food and service were good but we were asked to leave right on 90mins while we still had food, some of which had only just arrived. It was very disappointing to be kicked out so abruptly. Bad policy.

Great food - we shared appies amongst 4 and there was lots of food and many great tastes. Food came a little too fast and all together so felt a little rushed. Service was great but definitely shooing us out the door at the end. Would definitely go again.

Food is amazing but some options are very expensive considering the primary ingredients are lentils or veggies and portions are not very large.
