It's a good restaurant, not to par with restaurants in Turkey, Greece and Israel, but a very good option for San Jose.

Living in Canada, we do have high standards for Lebanese food, so we were a bit skeptical at first about the food. However, our perception changed completely once we had our meals.. The food was quite good considering Lebanese is a novelty in San Jose, and the service was pretty awesome too! I mean we were generally let down by... More

This place is frequented by the people who work at the hospital nearby. The food was lacking in flavor and was overpriced for the main entrees. If you do go be SURE to ASK for the daily special. Our waiter didn't mention this (probably because it was an entree that was under $10 and he wanted us to order something... More

This restaurant has it all, most of all delicious food. Moderately priced for the quality, dancing was not every night, so call to check and verify , the dancers were wonderful. Take your camera, This is right on Paseo Colon. We went back several times for the food and the ambiance both.

I am truly in love with this restaurant, if you like Lebanese cuisine this restaurant is not to be missed. The Meze platter for two is really good value

I would agree with "Decent Lebanese Food". Decent food, decent service, but certainly very pricy for what it is. Given the location maybe not too bad a choice but hopefully there is better to be found in the area.

Beautiful decoration, delicious food, attentive service and great music. This is the place to go if you love the Middle Eastern gastronomy. You completely forget you're in downtown San Jose! Love it!

I love Lubnan. It's well located in the city center, surrounded by parking lots (they have their own on the back, though). The food is consistently great and very diverse. It has a very nice environment and they have regular entertainment (belly dancing). Really great option both for lunch and dinner.
