Don't miss this casual, yet scrumptious restaurant. Excellent staff, chef, service, atmosphere and food. The hummus is the best I have ever had, start with an order with special chips and enjoy your glass of wine. The lamb chops were uniquely flavor in a style that is delicious. We enjoyed the service that was led by Jake with a personable... More

The food was good...fascinating mantee pasta with a creamy sauce, good chicken, good slightly spicy mediterranean salad.. The service was fine. We live nearby and wanted a place where we could eat before a concert at the Hwood Bowl. We will not be back. It was not so pricey for L.A. for the food, but I only realized later that... More

Found this place by happenstance -- so glad we did! Food and service divine, and within walking distance of our hotel.

If I had to pick "my spot" , this would have to be it. I want to try everything on the menu. The wait staff is very knowledgable and energetic . The food is mid eastern Lebanese but not overly adventurous for those of us with culinary limits. If you're non alcoholic in your beverage choices , bring your own... More

owner was very pleasant if a bit too chatty. Appetizers better than entrees, skip desert probably. Reasonably priced.

I was surprised how average the food was, based on the reviews. The environment is really cute, and the service is superb, but the food was just ok. I had the Dolma stuffed eggplant and Sarma stuffed grape leaves. Although they were tasty, they were VERY cold like straight out of the fridge. That probably stifled some flavors and gelled... More

This is hands down my favorite restaurant in LA. It has a cutely romantic ambiance, delicious food, and very pleasant waiters. You should order tabbouleh, baked feta, definitely the traditional mantee, shish kabob, and then whatever else you see that seems good. They now have wine selections and desserts, but I don't know much about either. Anyway, super cute and... More

I went with a visiting friend - and I had never heard of this spot. Very nice patio that felt intimate and sweet to catch up. Our server wasn't the most helpful, but we enjoyed trying their food. Out of 3 items samples, we loved two, and the fave was the salad. I would return to try out their lunch... More

we came across this restaurant by chance while flicking through trip advisor looking for a nearby place to eat. I'm glad we found this gem of a place!! The food was fantastic, we were given advice on choices and ended up stuffed full of delicious food! If you get a chance to go you must order the Fattoush and Mantee... More
