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

Great special occasion restaurant, Lebanese and Armenian, lovely setting. Friday night there's a dinner/entertainment.dance option or just regularr dinner. Both settings very nice: inside with the stage, the band, singers and the dance floor, and patio with archways by street for dinner only. We got together with my daughter's soon to be in laws for a pre-wedding dinner, and wentback... More

There are so many things to eat here that were simply delicious. The mante, the cheese beuregs, the filet mignon melts in your mouth, the eggplant salad, the shish tawook were all amazing. I must say that this was the best middle eastern restaurant I have ever eaten outside of the middle east, no joking! I have traveled extensively throughout... More

On this visit, we had only traditional Lebanese dishes. My huband is half Lebanese so we are always looking for places with food reminding him of his Mom's cooking. Carousel passed!

We have dined here for years. We skip the "dance night" and go on other evenings. I am not totally familiar with middle eastern foods, so I like that the menu is descriptive and the waitstaff is happy to explain the different dishes. In fact, everyone who works here is eager to please and knows the menu well. It's really... More

I dined here with family, and the portions were sooo small, especially for middle eastern tastes. I would much rather dine at Raffi's Place up the street where you get way way more food of better quality for the same price. (That's why Raffi's is packed and Carousel had virtually every table EMPTY). Very disappointed diner!

It was like walking into a restaurant in the middle east and leaving LA/Glendale behind. Excellent food and service. Went back to this restaurant three days later with out of town company.

A real Lebanese dinner and night club. This is one of the few restaurants in town where you can get a real lebanese dinner and dancing girls that liven up the night scene. They also have a real live band that plays american as well as arabic music and a small floor for dancing. I really love this place and... More
