The Jerusalem Y is a beautiful and historic setting for a great meal at the restaurant. Solid and good food, pleasant staff and just an amazing ambiance. Location is great as it's close to the old city and very central

We had dinner with some friends and business meeting there. Had a chance to walk around the Lobby, and see the inside, which is gorgeous. The food was middle eastern and authentic. Good portions and tasty. The background music was a bit loud.
