Ok, silly title, but amazingly delicious food, great ambiance, and wonderful staff. The happy hour deals are superb as well. I would eat here a lot if I lived in the neighborhood.

By friend and I chose this place based on the trip advisor reviews. It was excellent! We started with a hummus sampler- all 3 types were delicious, Especially when paired with the wonderfully airy bread. I had a shrimp kebab. The shrimp were perfectly cooked, paired with zucchini, rice, and a flavorful sauce. My friend had chicken curry, and said... More

The food was great, and variety of options terrific. We had a group of 16, and while there's plenty of space in the restaurant, the seating was tight, so not easy for guests to move about and talk with others at other end of table (could not hear from one end of the table to another). Service was very accommodating.

All of the Taverna locations are great, although the one in Woodley Park is spacious and airy and my favorite. The food is consistently very good, and the service too.

We got there shortly before closing time but still got to choose from almost everything on the menu. Even late, the place was almost full, partly due to many anthropologists who were having their annual meeting across the street. And, that is why we were there as well. There is a separate room at the back which can be used... More

Beautiful environment and furnishings, but so loud it was difficult to converse with anyone other than the person on one's immediate left or right (we had a rectangular table for five). Menu is fun, especially from the perspective of one who is unfamiliar with Lebanese or middle eastern fare. Our meals were very good, and there were interesting choices of... More

This spot is across the street from the Metro stop that serves the zoo and we went the Saturday after Christmas. Lots of families with small children were there. My husband and I had the falafel sandwich, his with a side salad and mine with tabbouleh which was worth the extra charge. The sandwich wasn't the most flavorful one I... More

I have been here twice and both times loved it. The appetizer plate is wonderful. The atmosphere is much nicer than you would think judging by the outside of the restaurant. Service was excellent and the food was great.

Nice ambiance, they've tried to give it a bit of middle eastern touch with all the lanterns and candles. The food is really good - tried the chefs platter which was awesome. The mix kebabs were also good. Service was efficient and attentive. Overall a great option in the McLean area.
