Mediterranean
We longed for a community built around a table with good food, but Anaheim lacked authentic and fresh Mediterranean cuisine. We took it on ourselves to create the space and food we craved. Together with friends and family, we hand-built a restaurant that felt Mediterranean in every way, from the murals of the Aleppo Citadel to the menu filled with warm spices and colorful vegetables. Our menu is still built on the original recipes and techniques passed down by our grandparents. We only use high-quality and fresh ingredients, because we want to represent our cuisine well.

    Sad to say it was a negative experience as first time customers. Tried to reach owner before having to write this review but no response 1. Management never follows up with customer regardless number of messages and concerns 2. First offense was a bug inside the water pitcher 3. Second was a bug on table discovered on cake cutter 4. Server took away plate of my guest without asking if she was done or wanted her food to go 5. This one took the cake, restaurant charged $45 for using dessert plates for our own cake! Even Cheesecake Factory who are famous for their cakes never made such a move when brining our own cake! Best of luck staying in business!

    Good location and ambience, but food was extremely overpriced and lacked traditional flavor. The service was mediocre even though the place was not too busy. Requested some hot sauce during the middle of the meal and it was not delivered till after we were finished and then I noticed we were charged $2 for a small dab of hot sauce!!

    The music was way too loud to even hear ourselves talk…. We asked several times to reduce the volume and still it was annoying!! The food I would say was more on the flavorless side, very bland…. no kick or spice to it…definitely over priced. The place is bright and cheery but still room for improvement! I would recommend it maybe for tea and dessert.

    Aleppo's Kitchen doesn't serve alcohol! I only mention it because I didn't know, and none of the other reviews that I saw included this info. It ended up not being an issue for our group as we enjoyed their spirit-free mixed drinks quite a bit. The food was so good. We ordered family-style and shared several dishes. The quality, freshness, and presentation were awesome. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for fresh, flavorful Mediterranean food. We did sit out on the patio where folks were smoking hookah which was fine. Several men next to us smoked cigars after their meal which was a little unpleasant for our group, but we understand it's the smoking area for the restaurant.

    The food was good but the service was a little questionable. The waiter had told me that they had kibble nayeh which is what I was craving but then the other server said they were out. Secondly, the way food came out was not acceptable at all. There were 4 of us and 2 entrees came out, waited for the 3rd and I insisted that the 3 guests eat because I was still waiting for mine which did eventually come out. So the service definitely needs improvement. But the food was good when we did get it.

    Aleppo's new Anaheim location is such a great addition to the offerings around Angel Stadium. The food was super fresh, hot, and in generous portions. I had the Kabob Sampler and every bite was heaven--the chicken so tender it melted in my mouth. My wife loved the grilled shrimp, and the pita--OMG! Extraordinary. It tasted freshly baked, hot out of the oven. Service was attentive, but not intrusive, and the food came out fairly quickly. The only improvement I suggest is that the room felt a bit stuffy--some air circulation would have helped. When we asked the server about it she quickly remedied the situation. It was a perfect spot to go before the game, with parking right next door for only $10! We'll be here regularly!

    Food was good. Service left a lot to be desired. Had to ask for someone to take our order. Darren was very slow and unfriendly. No water refills, charged for a piece of pita bread and 18% gratuity added for poor service. It would be fine to order to go, but not fine in. We were celebrating a graduation…very disappointing.

    Food was amazing. Kids and adults all found food we liked. With one server service would slow down and took us longer to get through our meal. Server was helpful, knowledgeable about the menu and got us everything we needed. kitchen kindly made some of the substitutions we requested. We got the Ramadan iftar and dinner special which was overpriced for the amount of food, and not having a kids portion was unfortunate. However because we went for a special occasion the extra cost was ok for us, especially as the food tasted fresh and high quality.
