Description: The word "Levante" is derived from "Levantine" which describes the eastern Mediterranean coastal region that today includes: Turkey, Greece and extends into Lebanon and Israel. The era of the Ottoman Empire and Alexander the Great, past rulers of the Levante region, is now history, but the culinary and cultural traditions live on.The tastes and flavors of that golden age come alive at Levante's. All dishes are made in the Levante tradition using only fresh ingredients. For centuries, these qualities have allowed people of the Mediterranean to eat well and live long healthy lives. Today at Levante's diners can enjoy the variety, freshness and the natural health benefits of this legendary cuisine. Levante's is the first restaurant group to offer eastern Mediterranean cuisine in a casual dining environment. Natural stone and light wood interiors envelope guests. Open kitchens and wood-fired ovens produce charcoal - grilled meats and vegetables, which are prepared in full view of diners.

We stopped at Levantes because we wanted to watch the World Cup game. Most everywhere else was full and Levantes had outdoor seating where we could watch the game. The menu is pricey, but it's good food. Also right across the street from the DC Metro.

The flavorless food was greasy, slapped onto the plates, without form and void. The best bit? The waiter had greasy food marks all over his jacket; it was really disgusting. It's not even worth saying more. Dupont Circle has some very good and reliable restaurants; don't go here.

Excellent food. Reasonable prices. On a nice day, a table outside under the umbrellas is a great way to spend the lunch hour. Dressy enough for a business lunch but priced to also be somewhere to meet friends. We've done dinner here and at their Bethesda location and same comments apply.

This is a great Turkish restaurant close to the circle, with dining inside or outside. The menu selection had a wide variety of Turkish foods to choose from. I tried an appetizer that was a combination of the various appetizers they had. It was excellent! The appetizer was such a full plate of the various food items on the appetizer... More

Slightly above average decore, good service and "excellent" food. Very generous selection for an all you can eat brunch. A very modest price. Every thing was very tasety and probably authentic as well. Outdoor tables are a good choice in good weather. Love to go to see their dinner menu and service.

Fabulous lunch spot near DuPont Circle. Excellent service and even better food. You'll start with warm, fresh round flatbread and olive oil. Soup, salad and appetizers were fantastic. Will definitely come here again and highly recommend. Levante's in DC

A fantastic Med menu. Try to get an outdoor table if the weather is nice: indoors can get quite loud in the evenings.
