Our party of five very much enjoyed the wonderful Lebanese (Middle Eastern/Mediterranean) cuisine and service at Carousel for a Wednesday night dinner. Entering the dining room was like entering a different world or earlier era with unique decor and raised our anticipation for a fun experience from the get-go. I went with a very healthy and tasty Vegetarian's Delight, a... More

Not your basic nonfat Greek yogurt have it every morning for breakfast yogurt. This was like very soft cream cheese, Rich, full of flavor. Chicken breast... More

All of the Lebanese dishes were great; my Lebonese associated ordered for us so other than the kebabs and hummus I don't know what the dishes were - everyone was extremely friendly. I had red Lebanese wine from the beqaa valley and it was very good.

I'll begin by saying that the salad was fantastic! The service was great and the servers were so nice. However, people come here to eat. Again, the salad was fantastic! The food though was decent. Not mind blowing but not displeasing. I would consider coming back here but only if I were in the area. Otherwise, I would not make... More

The menu has a vast number of selections to try, so the hardest part was to decide which items we wanted to taste the most. We tried several delicious appetizers and each had an entree. The young waiter was helpful and honest in guiding our selections, so we had a successful dining experience. Everything was delicious and we had no... More
