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 !

Several locations in the greater Washington DC area, all serving fresh and authentic dishes from the eastern Mediterranean area. The best location is in a neighborhood called Woodley Park, and is a beautiful, friendly setting with attentive wait staff who can advise you about their specialties.

Excellent choice for a Lebanese restaurant. Good food, excellent service, outdoor seating was excellent as well. To be recommended for sure. One suggestion: more Lebanese options in the "entrees" menu.

Enjoyed a great dinner on the patio prior to the thunderstorm moving in and forcing us inside. The food was excellent. The service was outstanding. Very attentive and accommodating waitstaff. Not only accommodated us in moving to an inside table to avoid a thunderstorm (even carried our water glasses in for us) but then grabbed an umbrella and walked my... More

I came here with several colleagues for dinner on a Wednesday night. It was busy but our table was ready immediately (we had reservations). The waiter was great: good recommendations and quite engaging. We had grape leaves and hummus appetizers. I had shrimp arak for dinner which I thought was delicious. I would be pleased to dine here again.
