What a delight!

We went during restaurant week, we started with some drinks and ending up having dinner at the bar. The bartenders were very friendly, even though it was busy and they took the time out to walk us through the. Although, we weren't familiar with hardly anything on the menu, we were in the ""try anything"" mentality. We started out with the hummus and laffa, then a selection of 8 salad tastings, followed by the cripsy haloumi (delicious!) I highly recommend the hanger steak and lamb sausage.
The best deal is the prixe fix menu, it will allow you to sample a variety of Zahav's wonderful dishes. Even though the portions are small, they are packed with great culinary skill! I will definately be coming back again. It was a unique experience, great wine, great service, an all around enjoyable time.

good and bad

I feel this place needs to broken down into pros and cons, so here goes: PROS- nice decor/atmosphere, very friendly/helpful staff, tasty and unique ingredients, big place with lots of seating. CONS-Website says it's casual and we showed up way under dressed, BIG prices/TINY portions, staff a bit TOO friendly... i'd like to be left alone for longer than 30 seconds at a time, turkish coffee was not made correctly, and portion was even smaller than it normally would be. Sorry, I won't be back.

Don't Go Here

I went to Zahav for the first time with 12 people for a birthday party 3 weeks ago. The original reservation was for 17 people, but ended up being 12 people. The moment we were all seated at the banquet table in the front of the restaurant, a waiter hurried over---not to take our order or serve water--but to make sure we knew that even though we were only 12 people that we would be charged for full apps, dinner and tip for 17 people.

We were all flabbergasted.

Supposedly the restaurant had to ""turn away"" people for the night--meanwhile the restaurant was only 1/4 to 1/3 full that entire Friday night. Empty tables galore. After much discussion, they said they'd ""kindly"" leave out the tip for the 17 people, but that we still had to pay everything else. Needless to say we were outraged. After another round of not-so-nice discussion with the manager, they finally, begrudgingly agreed to charge us for the actual number of people there.

The food and service was average, and the cost--exorbitant. I have eaten at all the best philly restauarnts, and never gotten treated the way we did at Zahav. We will never go there again.

Shame on you, Zahav.

Absolutely fabulous! The specialty drink menu was super tasty and the food was to die for! The menu was a bit strange and a little overwhelming not knowing the dishes, but the waiter was very helpful with any questions. Instead of doing too much thinking, we decided to go for the prix-fixe menu. It came with a large assortment of dishes, and there was nothing that we didn?t care for. We left totally stuffed, I cant wait to go back!
