    Took my mom out for her birthday. Beautiful restaurant on the inside. I made a reservation and was sat in a corner booth right beside the door, which was a little disappointing. Food was delicious.

    Fantastic Mediterranean food, all very authentically fresh. This a real gem hidden in the darkness of the park. The building has a very unique structure that, if lit up properly, would really shine and attract more customers. Staff were helpful and friendly in describing the dishes. Food came out quickly (almost too fast) and service was just the right attentiveness. GIVE IT A TRY!!

    Overall experience was just okay. I feel like we walked in on a rush however there were very few tables when we arrived. It took some time to be seated. I was also disappointed that the menu was different from what was available online. It would have been nice if the server could have recommend some options for our group as we were unfamiliar with some of the ingredients or the way the items were served.

    Park By Sidewalk CitizenResponded on October 17, 2023

    Hi Jess, we are so sorry that your experience with us was less than you had hoped for. I personally will apologize for the menu not having been up to date online. We hope that you will give us another chance in the future.

    The ambiance and food is lovely but we waited a wildly long time for everything from ordering our first drink, to its arrival 20 minutes later, to our food 1:10 after we ordered it.. we were there for a very slow casual dinner and it was still way too long and impacted our enjoyment of the evening.

    Building is gorgeous, however the food was just ok. Salmon starter was mushy, pitas were too saucy and scarce for toppings.. service was excellent but we won't be returning to eat.

    Park By Sidewalk CitizenResponded on October 10, 2023

    Hello, we are very sorry to hear that your experience wasn't what you had hoped for. Our pitas are typically quite stuffed, so we are very sorry that yours was underfilled.

    10/10 Restaurant. It had been on my list for some time. Finally found a lunch time to go and try. Absolutely gorgeous interior and attentive and kind service. We both got the Falafel Wrap and shared the Honey Cake after. Hands down the freshest pita and falafel I have ever had. Such attention to the flavors. I will be going back to try another one of their wraps and the Shakshuka.

    The eggs were ice cold and the water was lukewarm. The waiter’s description of menu items was inaccurate which negatively influenced decisions of what to order. The ambience was cold, hard, utilitarian to the point of being uncomfortable. The space certainly looks better in photographs than in real life. Top that off with being rushed out the door even though they were not full and I’m very unlikely to return.

    I tried this place for the first time for brunch and.. this place was fantastic! Great location and even better food. The Lahmajoun and falafel pita is one of THEE best I have ever tried!

    Food was not as good as in the past. Pita had burn marks on one side and tasted burnt. Fatoush salad was ordinary, which a bit too much acidity and not enough oil.
