Falafels were amazing- service was kind and attentive without being in your space.
Only complaint is that it is quite loud, and with the high ceilings- it just seemed really busy with lots going on- hard to focus on conversations.
Braised beef lamb was amazing. Loved the pita. Service was excellent and looking forward to going again.
Everything was great.
Cleanliness was under par with expectations. Toilet was filthy. Our plates were greasy and the laminated menu was covered in food splotches.
Great food, good atmosphere. I would definitely recommend to others and dine here again.
Going back this Sunday! The food here is off the charts delicious.
Great food and service! Brunch on the patio was spectacular!
Food is awesome.
The kale salad was wilted - tired. It did not seem fresh. I’ve had it here before and was much fresher. Should always be fresh.
A fantastic food experience, completely unpretentious. Everything was tasty and plentiful. Service was great. 10/10. My fave restaurant in TO.
Always a good time. Server was a hoot. Thanks db
Best food ever. I’ve never had falafel like this, it is life changing! Very vegetarian friendly
Took my partner out for a nice brunch for his birthday. The service is excellent, they gave us the option to sit on the patio + the food is delicious. Their falafels are so airy and fluffy! How do they do this sorcery? :)
Food is well prepared but quite pricey for the amount of food you get. Highlight was their in-house hot sauce spice mixture. The space indoors is a large concrete room so it is very reverberant and hard to hear others when there loud house music playing in the space.
Great food, and excellent service, but it's too loud. The high walls intensify the crowd noise and electronic music. Maybe I'm too old...Again, the food was great, and the was perfect.
Wait staff very attentive. Seated promptly. Food terrific.
Delicious Mediterranean fare ... falafel and tabluleh salad are a must!
I book my reso incorrectly on open table, booked the wrong day by accident. The hostess was very nice and was able to get ya us a spot at the bar. The place was busy! The Bar was perfect the bartender was very cool and the help is with menus sections! All the selections were amazing, incredible food! Thanks Parallel for an awesome experience. I’ll be back very soon!
Amazing middle eastern food that was not typical cookie cutter menu.
Honestly food was delicious but we were without exaggerating bloated for 2 full days after having lunch there. We laughed about it but it genuinely will be the reason why I wouldn’t return. Not sure if it was the truffle oil or abundance of garlic but it took the term food baby to a whole other level.
We enjoyed it a lot. Food was delicious overall! service excellent.
This restaurant was a little out of the way for us, but well worth the trip. The food was excellent---the best Israeli food we've had outside of Israel. Good range of vegan options for me and some nicely seasoned meat options for my wife. With a nice bottle of wine, a few different dishes and coffee the total bill was less than many meals out we've had in recent years.
Service was horrible. Very slow. We had to ask the server every time we wanted something. It was not even busy. We would have spent far more money if he was around. The times he came by he would just eye the table and not ask anyone if they wanted anything. Very lazy and relying on the fact that it’s a well known restaurant.
I love this restaurant but our experience this time wasn't as fabulous as in the past.
Three of our lattes came out cold.
And the food wasn't as good as I remember it being.
I wonder if there's been a change in management.
It's still good just not as great as I remember.
Our server though was awesome.
LOVE the food! Our dishes came out extremely quickly - however at the end of the meal, we had to wait an extremely long time before servers checked in/noticed we were done eating, and then even longer to get our bill. Really incredible food, and we'll be back.
Food was excellent, especially the mushroom dish. Too noisy for my liking but did appreciate that they turned down the music. Still, nothing to baffle the sound. Only real complaint is that they need to be better identifying dishes that contain cilantro. Had asked the server before ordering and he identified a couple dishes but did not mention the falaffel. Bit into it and knew right away it was there. He offered to take it off the bill, but that wasn't the point. I ate something that could have easily ruined my whole meal because it is hard to get the soap taste out of my mouth.
This food is not to be missed. Delicious fresh and interesting Lebanese with a modern vibe. A bit loud and could use some sound absorbing art on the walls but the food far surpasses any noise/decor issue. Sunday brunch is phenomenal!
Fantastic food. Best middle eastern in the city!!!
My husband and i have been to this spot a couple of times and we love it. Amazing food & great service every time.
Very nice experience. Tasty Israeli food, fantastic service, and a unique setting. I will visit it again.
I took out a friend for lunch and we both enjoyed the experience: the service was extremely nice and the food excellent ! I will come back again !
The service was amazing! Food was delicious and very cool vibe.
Excellent food, a lot GF and VG, highly recommendable
While still eating our main dishes Our party was told to hurry up and order dessert since they needed our table in less than half an hour. Basically we were being kicked out.
Reservations were for 7:00 PM. We did get our table early but 2 of 4 arrived a few minutes late. AT 8:20 we were told that they needed our table at 8:45 so we’d better order dessert then if we were interested. I’m sure this was no fault of the waiter just the manager, who although I’m sure she knew we were less than impressed didn’t bother to come over to apologize!! (Even though we suggested to the waiter that we’d be happy to discuss it with the manager). About 15 minutes later he mentioned to us that they found another solution. It was interesting to note that at no time were there people waiting for a table.
Jeremy was a great waiter and we loved our meal and celebrating my daughter’s birthday.
Food is good but SUPER expensive for the portion size. I’m sorry but $16 for a small “shared plate” is pushing it. Over $100 for three people with no booze.
If you haven't been, go check it out! The food is so fresh tasting! Delicious! The sesame butter is the best I have ever tasted, I brought home a jar of the beet one. Portions are perfect for sharing so you can taste more items but would also likely be good size for one. The big open warehouse is cool, and unique to see the giant vat where the house made sesame butter is made! A great place for brunch and lunch (I have never been for dinner).
Too much garlic
Amazing food in a trendy industrial facade. Great value too!
