Lebanese experience

There are two outside sitting areas as well as indoor sitting. A wide variety to choose from, the portions are quite big and we had take away food at some point especially since they serve appetizers before the main meal. The meal for two might probably be best for three people. The service was... read more

We had a birthday lunch here for our daughter. The staff was very helpful in making all preparations. The food is very good, with good portions. The service is also timely. They allowed us to bring our own cake, which was nice. They have a kids playground structure with ladders and slides, and a bouncing castle on Sundays, so it's... More

Visited Cedars on an arranged dinner while participating on a conference. Excellent buffet of Lebanese food. Very tender and tasty Kofta! Love the freshness of the ingredients and the variety of dishes. Excellent Lebanese coffee too. Parking can be quite a hassle during peak hours.

A couple of years ago I found this place very boring and the food of uneven quality, but unlike most restaurants, it's headed uphill -- two recent meals were really quite good. Try the hummus and anything with eggplant. Great, reliable wifi and a nice ambience, too.

As a group with a variety of tastes, we ordered the half vegetarian mezze (menu says serves 2-3) and the mezze platter (menu says serves 2), which was plenty for the 8 of us. The selection... More

We have been there for dinner one night. Food were average, portions are plenty and too much. Even on appetizers, so don't order a lot to avoid waste of for. Service were quick. And food was ok. We would go again for quick lunch.

For the amount that customers spend here the service is wanting. Out take away was unceremoniously literally dropped on the table with the bill.The order was incomplete and thoughtlessly packed without forks or serviettes. If you are going to charge that much surely try and make the whole experience worthwhile.

I really enjoyed Cedars! I have eaten there several times for dinner and lunch and the Lebanese food is always very fresh and delicious. Salads, pickles, hummous, taboule, falafel and pita- yum!
