The taste was good, the service was good, the coffee was the best. The dessert simple. Overall we were a couple that sits on the balcony so it was also quiet. Recommended. However, you should be patient if you come on the busy hours.

Great food, good portions. The place was buzzing both evenings we went. We sat at the bar and met lots of interesting people!

We had pasta when we were there and the food is good and service is quick. When we asked for the dessert menu, instead of a paper menu, we were presented with a tray of desserts to choose from!

While the reviews are decent this place is not one I would recommend. The food was decent and the service horrible. Once we were seated at a nice outdoor table the server placed the menus in front of us and then immediately gruffly demanded "What do you want to eat!" The menu is fairly extensive. We asked for a few... More

I ordered the chicken fettuccini, it was one of the better pastas I have had and I use to live and work with Italians. The place was very lively and friendly and reasonably priced. Will definitely return next time I'm in jeruselem!! Thank you

Our hotel, the Waldorf, recommended Focaccia Bar to us - easy walk - open for service on Saturday. They made a reservation for us which was key - it was packed when we got there. Our table was awkwardly located in a corner and we were crowded in by the adjacent group. Had a delicious grilled head of cauliflower to... More

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel concierge. It was delicious! The focaccia was perfectly cooked, pasta dishes also good. Enjoyed a tasty cocktail, too! We arrived early on a Friday evening and even with no reservation they were able to accommodate our group of 8 before the dinner rush began. Highly recommend!

Probably the worst service I've ever experienced. While waiting for my friend who recommended the restaurant I ordered a beer but the waiter forgot, so I reordered with another waitress who also forgot. I tried a third time but this waitress was in a bad mood and although just a few feet away refused to make eye contact. Thirty minutes... More
