Best Seafood by far. The most amazing seafood I have ever eaten in a resturant. I had Sauteed Calamari served on a bed of shaved fennel & yogurt, delish, and the calamari was so tender, i wanted to order another dish. My husband had a fish dish I forgot the name, but will never forget the taste can't wait to go back I need to found out the name of that dish.
indifferent and arrogant. I am no stranger to Taboon. I have been going since they opened a few years ago. I always had great service and good food. That being said, I will never set foot in there again. I brought a friend whom had never been few nights ago and right off the bat the hostess was very rude. We didn?t have a reservation and she was pressuring us to be finished and out the door in an hour and a half. It took forever to get our food and the waitress never thought to apologize or let us know why it was taking so long. When it finally came, it was so salty I didn?t even want to finish it. For the amount of money you spend for a meal there, it is not worth your time and energy. This is the first time I?ve ever thought to post a review. I wanted people to know that this eatery is on a serious decline.
A hidden gem of a restaurant. Went last week with my boyfriend and was pleasantly surprised by amazing service and delicious food. The hot bread and mediterranean plates were fantastic . This is without a doubt one of the hidden gems in the neighborhood. We'll be back soon. We also loved the wood burning oven!!
Great Middle Eastern in Hells Kitchen. I hardly ever go out in this area but went for someone's birthday. I was pleasantly surprised, The food especially the crab meat salad was very good and my fish special was delicious. The atmosphere is very nice and warm. I would highly recommend for the area. It is a nice place for a date, family dinner or friends. My service was fine so the one bad review I didn't experience.
Takes Middle Eastern cuisine to new heights. This is the best middle eastern restaurant in town. I am a native of israel, and every time i have taken friends to this place everyone loved everything they ordered and they made me proud. Personally, the humus dish is the best i've had, miles better than even humus place in the east village (which is the next best). I also love the lamb kebabs which sadly i order every single time. Atmosphere is great - not noisy, and the staff is always cheerful. Highly recommended!
Awesome Middle Eastern!. Taboon is an upscale version of your typical Middle Eastern restaurant. The waitstaff is impeccable, the space is gorgeous and made for fine dining and the food is good enough to make your mouth water. The lamb shank is juicy and delicious with the meat falling easily off the bone. The other entress had were quite good as well. They included short ribs and halibut. There is a tiny bit of a table rush/false reservation need but, other than that, the place is excellent.
A good reason to visit 1oth Avenue. Although it was a little out of the way for us (we came from Brooklyn) Taboon was definitely worth the trip. My parents were in from out of town and love Mediterranean food and we decided to try it based on the raves on citysearch. We were seated promptly, the food was absolutely delicious (the bread is unbelievable and each of the four of us had something different: osso bucco, short ribs, filet and halibut and we all firmly believe we ordered the best thing on the menu). The waiter was attentive and made great drink recommendations. This place is perfect for before the theater or any time that you just want a delicious, low key meal. Dining at the bar looked like a great option as well.
Wonderful food!. We've eaten at Taboon many times - alone and with friends (who've liked it so much they've come back with other friends). The ambience is just right - candles everywhere, tables not crowded together and it's not too noisy. The food is wonderful! Make sure to get the flatbread straight from the taboon - delicious! My favorite appetizer is the sea scallop. All their seafood entrees are delicately flavorful and beautifully presented. My husband likes their meat dishes - osso buco, steak and lamb all prepared with very tasty Mediterranean seasonings. Their desserts are the best! My only negative is the spotty service - sometimes attentive, sometimes slow. Overall it's a great restaurant definitly worth the trip west!
Amazing Food. I've been here 2x each was excellent. Love the apps, wine, entrees & desserts. Service was tip top as well. Can't wait to go back!
I live in the area and have been to Taboon a few times with friends. The food was tasty but nothing so special. Then I learned that all the meat prepared in a pork glaze....including the chicken! I find it unethical for a restaurant not to list this on the menu. Intresting enough every other ingrediant down to the parsley was listed on the menu...but another meat wasn't? So wrong!
Also the service was quite off putting. I noticed that a lot of waiters were approaching my table but the service was not any better. Messages were lost between the waitstaff or something. I waited a long time for my drink. (So long that it prevented me from increasing their sales by getting more possible drinks) If i just saw my one waiter the whole night I would have known who to talk too.
