good place

I was there 2 days ago with my wife, my son and his wife, for my some birthday. This is a good meat restaurant, with excellent and quick service and excellent food. A little bit expensive.

Our kids were visiting-we were 3 adults and 3 teenagers. We all enjoyed our meals, especially the shared platter for 2, which was enough for 4! The appetizers are a mixed bag, mostly excellent, but some not so great. The waiter was very helpful, but I was surprised that he highly recommended the fried eggplant appetizer to teenage Americans. He failed to mention that the eggplant is grilled/smoked before being breaded and fried; the kids thought it tasted like cigarettes smell. They did enjoy the panko mushrooms and the orange lentil soup.The mains were very good with generous portions. I was very pleased with my lamb chops, while my husband loved the boneless short ribs in terikyaki sauce. The desserts were nothing special. They looked much better than they tasted. All in all, though, it was a most enjoyable evening. Good service. I would recommend going on the earlier end of dinner service to avoid the crowds.

The food was absolutely delicious and the variety abundant. I’ve visited Rodriguez many times before an have always rated ii five stars. I’ve rated it three stars this time however, because while the food was as delicious as ever, some new “rules” were put in place terrible soured my overall experience. There are so many wonderful places to dine in Jerusalem, so if I’m going to spend a few thousand shekel for an evening out with family and friends, I’d prefer to spend it at an establishment that’s not penny wise but pound foolish. Under their new “rule,” everyone seated must order a main dish. If not, then you’re “fined” a 45 shekel “seating fee” for the amount of participants not ordering a main. We were notified of this “rule” as we were being seated. 45 shekel is less than $10, so the actual dollar amount isn’t the point. It’s the “Chutzpa” of the matter. We were a party of twelve. We ordered appetizers for the entire party in addition to wine, cocktails and other “non-obligatory,” yet costly, items. But, alas, with all the (paid) food and drink on the table we ended up ordering eleven main dishes, rather than twelve. Our bill was over 3,000 shekel. They did well on us that night. But, alas, let’s not forget about the 45 shekel “seating fine” for the one individual who didn’t order a main. The epitome of “Chutzpah.” As delicious as the food is and has always been, I will no longer grace this establishment with my family’s presence. (They ended up “waiving” the fee, which I protested very adamantly out of principal, not money.)
