    There was nothing outstanding about Cafe Landwer. It took almost 45 minutes to receive our meals (two of us) and about 30 minutes to receive our dessert. The food was just okay.

    Pleasant place and lovely ambience. The food was good but we had a few issues with the rosalach that we ordered. It's one item we never fail to order everytime we go to landwer. This time it was nearly burnt and hardly had any filling like it used to. Apart from that, it was a lovely experience!

    Ordered the shakshuka. Was so delicious, included a side, bread and a whole pan of shakshuka. So worth it for $15. Atmosphere is adorable, the cafe has beautiful decorations. Only complaint was the service. Our waiter seemed a bit annoyed and when it was time to pay for cash another waiter had to step in and stop the confusion. Overall such a nice cafe with delicious food, will be returning very soon!!

    Right off the bat, I was glad to see they paid attention to my note on OpenTable. I needed a table where we could park my daughter’s stroller without blocking anyone, and that’s what we got. The food was delicious. Everyone loved what they had. The service was fast and our waiter was attentive. The tables are really close to each other. I get why businesses do that but it would have been a more comfortable experience with more room. Still, you can’t beat the delicious food and the great service.

    We had the vegan fried rice and the butternut squash ravioli, which were both phenomenal! Went on a pretty quiet night, it was snowy so probably less people than a normal weekend night. A little bit pricy for a place with a diner atmosphere, but still worth it for how good the food was.

    Brought my vegan friend from NYC to try the vegan shawarma but they were out of the focaccia bread. Luckily, we tried other items and they were delicious. Our favorite is the Jerusalem artichokes. We also had the meatballs, falafel, Israeli salad and couscous. Service was hectic and it was a busy night. After we were seated, we had to ask for water and when the food came we didn’t have utensils or plates. She quickly got them and all was well. We also got a side of dairy with our vegan meatballs so good thing we asked. The atmosphere is nice and I’ll visit again but the location closer to Fenway.

    Wow. Just wow! My sister and I went to dinner at this restaurant after perusing the menu and becoming intrigued. We thought the menu sounded really great. The food itself though? Beyond expectations! There were just enough options that you had a choice, but the menu wasn't a novel. There was also a variety of options to meet many dietary restrictions. I cannot wait to bring other people to this restaurant. Everything from the atmosphere to the service to the food itself was amazing.

    It may have been our service provider's first day, but we had to seek her out for each step in the process; i.e., when we didn't get the water we had ordered, when we were ready to order dessert and when we were finished and ready to pay our bill.
