Some coworkers and I visited this location for lunch after a morning of meetings. The food was very good; I had the fatteh, which was excellent (especially once I realized that I should mix it up/together). The hummus was also tasty, and each of us were able to find our favorite.

A great place to grab a bite or meal. Hummus is excellent and the waitstaff are very friendly. Great atmosphere and dinning experience.

For Over twenty years I have frequented Lebanese Taverna in their several locations starting with the one near the zoo. I have never been disappointed in the food or service. Always very attentive and helpful waitstaff. My latest visit included dinner at the Pentagon Row location. The menu has changed during the past 20 years but the staples of Middle... More

Began 2015 with an excellent lunch here! Having previously eaten at a Lebanese Taverna Cafe, which was more a "fast food" type establishment, we were ready to experience Lebanese food again and we were not disappointed. Unlike the previous location, this was a fine sit-down restaurant, with a beautiful middle eastern decorated interior. The menu presented a wide selection of... More

We have eaten at the Lebanese Tavernas multiple times over the years. The food is reliably good, the service quick and professional, and the prices quite decent for Northern VA. In the warmer months it is great to be able to sit outside and eat at their Pentagon Row location. I really miss having a Middle Eastern staple like this... More

I definitely recommend this to anyone that likes Mediterranean food. The food is delicious, great wine selection, and during the summer there is nice outdoor seating. Prices are decent.

When we lived here 3 years ago for 21 years this was our favorite place to eat in the neighborhood. The interior is charming and the outside dining is great. It's located in Pentagon Row a shopping, dining, and living area. The food is very good and the deserts are to die for.

While staying in Arlington recently, my husband and I had a nice dinner at Lebanese Taverna in Pentagon Row. We started with salads, the minty Lebanese for me and Taverna for my husband. Both were fresh and tasty. They were also large enough that we could have shared just one had we been able to agree on a single choice.... More

Visited this restaurant with friends. We each had a different dish and the food was excellent: well prepared and tasty. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. There is underground parking at Pentagon Row which is a very short walk to the restaurant. The only "complaint" is that the restaurant acoustics are such that noise carries. The restaurant was busy and... More

Sat outside as a group of 6 and had a sharing menu, which was an ideal introduction to Lebanese food. The food was tasty and plentiful. The staff were very attentive. Great location in Pentagon Row with lots going on around you. Recommended !
