Good, but I can't say great...

Lebanese Tavernas are all great- the food, the service, etc. The biggest shocker is always the cost versus the quantity of food. Two entrees will easily push $50 and you're still hungry.

We were staying near by and decided to have Lebanese food for dinner. The restaurant staff was friendly. I ordered lamb shawarma and my wife ordered same with chicken. It was served pretty quickly however it was very dry. Just lamb pieces wrapped in pita with lettuce and tomatoes, nothing else. Their hummus and bread was great though!

I've been to Lebanese Taverna (both in Pentagon Row and elsewhere) several times for work and fun, and have found it to be a reliable option. Servers are attentive, food is good, and the place doesn't get too noisy, even when busy. Makes it much easier to catch up with friends!

I love the Lebanese food so this choice was not accidentally made. Been here already several times with close friends and keep coming back. Grilled meat, humus, vegetables - all are especially tasty.

Service, atmosphere and food were good, but it wasn't for us. We had a variety of items from the menu, but we couldn't find just the right things for us.

Fabulous dinner! Went with family & friends, including a baby! Waiters were attentive & friendly! Food -especially variety appetizer- was fantastic! Not too spicy, something yummy for everyone!

I went here with my wife and two young children ages 3 and 5 for dinner. The food was very good, with the usual Middle Eastern offerings, although the cocktails looked great yet I couldnt resist being able to try a Lebanese beer for the first time. The kids menu was good and my kids had a great little shwarma... More

Love Lebanese Taverna, especially this location! My husband and I made this our first stop after returning from overseas.... Fresh ingredients, excellent flavors, hearty portions and great service.... We always have a great meal here! This time, to satisfy all of our cravings, we ordered the mezza sampler so we could enjoy all or favorites like tabbouleh, hommus, baba ghanoush,... More

This restaurant is outstanding. The service is European, and the food is authentic Lebanese--absolutely delicious. I made a meal out of a mezza appetizer platter. Everything is obviously very fresh, and the dishes are truly authentic.

I was there during my stay in Washington for two times. The staff was great in both occasions. The food was great, and for a fair price. Nice place to eat or to go with your friends.
