I am a big fan of Lebanese food and this place suffices Lebanese foodie fans like me. Not over the top with a wide range of menu I quiet enjoyed the subtle flavor in this restaurant. It’s a nice restaurant to try when in this area but I would not go out of way to eat at this place. I... More

They make the best I've had besides what you can find in Turkey. The entire menu is a little pricey for me, but once in a while it's worth going.

We went here last Friday with a couple friends of ours (at their suggestion). We go fairly frequently to a more informal, cafeteria-style Lebanese taverna in Silver Spring, but this was a more formal, sit-down variety of the restaurant that has more variety at the upper end (but doesn't serve the same variety of sandwiches). I'm not sure that greater... More

we normally get all the appetizers for the meal. Love the puffed bread. And the hummus is the best. Vegetarian Mezza is the best! And they have a pizza there with out the cheese that is soooo good!

My husband and I dined at this restaurant recently and were VERY impressed! The menu choices are varied and numerous.The mesa, entre and dessert were outstanding! The manager and servers treated us well and were very attentive. We highly recommend this restaurant and cannot wait to return.

This place used to be exceptional. Now the portions seem quite small and the quality is not what it used to be. Disheartening, because this place used to be amazing. We now visit the one in Crystal City which hasn't changed.

Love their selection; delicious starters and sandwiches, kabobs... Attentive service. Parking lot is small, but plenty of street parking in the neighborhood. Great for lunch or dinner!

Visited the Arlington location of Lebanese Taverna while on vacation, on advice from a family member in the area. This was the best eat-out dinner of our vacation. Service was great and staff was very friendly and helpful. Two things I noticed... 1) You would have to try very hard to walk away feeling hungry. 2) Lebanese food is far... More

I invited a friend for dinner there and we both enjoyed the food selections we had. I would go again. Parking is very easy since it's located in the mall.

We got a 'steer' to this restaurant, from a strange, in an elevator..named Daniel...who rattled off three locations ... recommending the one on Washington Rd in Alexandria. We arrived on a Saturday [6-23-2012). Our waiter, Vincent (of Egyptian lineage), was exceptionally helpful...even advising that a salad selection I had made might be 'too much' ...explaining that our appetizer and entre... More
