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.

Nice atmosphere and the outdoor seating is great if the weather is right. The waiter was very attentive and helpful with his recommendations. Their menu had so many options and a great selection of gluten free dishes. The food was delicious. I like it when I can select several smaller dishes rather than one large entree, it feels like I'm... More

I have been to the Lebanese Taverna several times in recent months. It is a lovely experience. The baba ganoush is amazing, I hate eggplant, and I loved it anyway. The bread is always hot and fresh, and is wonderful with the aforementioned baba ganoush as well as the hummus. Service is always lovely. We have been treated pleasantly, and... More

Was surprised by the quality and authenticity of the food at what promised to be nothing more than a upscale urbanite chain restaurant. Several of us had the sampler plates which came with around 9 different dishes and was plenty of food. Each dish was really good ( I have a part Lebanese wife who loves to cook) and was... More

We had Ouzi with Stuffed Grape Leaves, Shwarma, and a White Pizza. Our drinks came with very flavorful freshly baked flat bread. The Ouzi had perfectly cooked lamb with a yogurt sauce on the side. Surprisingly the grape leaves were served hot. It was served over an earthly rice pilaf. The Shwarma was well flavored, not to redolent of onions,... More

Being far from home you are always trying to eat as much as possible tasty and healthy. This is a place where you will find fresh baked bread, chilly ayran and many more yummy things.
