The first time we came before the theater, we naively thought we could get seats on the bar - nada. Gotta reserve. This time meeting friends from the hood for lunch, we reserved and were seated inside where the ambiance was cave-like. We thought we were early but when we looked at our watches and since our friends are always... More

If you visit Tel Aviv and go for a late theatre show at the Opera or Theatre , both located 100 meters from this restaurant, you will enjoy a fast service with good food. After the show there are as good or even better options, but this is an excellent place by all means.

The place is almost always crowded and noisy but the food is good. The location is just opposite the Opera House which makes it very convenient.

The only thing I like about the restaurant is its' location. It is very convenient to walk out of the theatre and have a meal right there. The food was average - nothing special, the service was ok but the place was noisy so it was hard to enjoy the time we spent there.

We ordered two fish dishes, one with salmon and one with fish balls. Both were very good, especially the fish balls, which were exquisitely seasoned. Even more important, they completely understand dietary issues (allergy, sensitivity) and the waiter gave us expert advice on what we could or should not have.

The place is almost always crowded and noisy, but if you arrive earlier that is much better. The menu varies frequently and food is almost always very original and well-prepared. Service is efficient and friendly and the price is right. This is an ideal restaurant to have dinner before concert, opera or theatre. Highly recommended.

Description
The Dining Hall is an Israeli multi-cultural restaurant featuring chef Omer Miller's interpretation of a wide variety of Sephardi, Ashkenazi, Arab and Jerusalem style dishes. The restaurant is situated at the Performing Arts Center in Tel Aviv, at the previous location of the FoodArt restaurant. Chef Miller was FoodArt restaurant's chef and is still the executive chef of FoodArt catering. Miller's menu at The Dining Hall uses local produce, a wide variety of vegetables, herbs, fish and meat, together with Mediterranean and European cooking techniques. The menu includes well known dishes, familiar from home, with Miller's precise techniques and presentation, and the typical "Miller" twist - modern, minimal and innovative. The restaurant design is modern and meticulous, resulting in a beautiful interior of calm, neutral colors, allowing the food to be the spotlight. The seating is at long tables, appropriate to the manner in which the dishes are served - just like at home - medium sized portions served to the center of the table for sharing. Dishes are served to the table as soon as they are ready, without regard to traditional serving order. The atmosphere of the restaurant, the modern Israeli background music, the casual and delightful service and moderate pricing, all come together to create a young, energetic and happy eating experience.
