Great Mediterranean food. It's just a quintessential Cleveland institution. Great service, fun people watching, go to Mitchell's nearby for dessert. The neighborhood has really turned a corner.

This small restaurant has been at the same location on west 25th street forever. Just down the street from the West Side Market, they offer both Lebanese dishes and Deli sandwiches. The prices are low and the food is great. A good place for families. We have been coming here since our oldest child was 6 weeks old and she's... More

This is the best Lebanese restaurant in Cleveland. The food is always freshly made and the service is always great. They only serve breakfast and lunch. Everything on the menu tastes and smells just like Sunday dinner at my Grandma's house. If you are adventurous try the kibbe neyah (raw lamb with cracked wheat).

Cross over the Lorain Avenue bridge, turn right at the West Side Market, and you'll find Nate's Deli and Restaurant on the right, at number 1923. You'll enjoy the best Middle Eastern fare in town--the Hummus is famous, but try some of their other specialties, such as the combination plates. Whatever you order, you'll see why people come from as... More

We took the Reuben sandwich and the potato salad for take away. Service was excellent and so was the food, we were just briefly inside and the resturant was fulled! Looked like atmosphere was nice!

I think the previous reviewer has it wrong. This can't be *just* the best hummus in Cleveland, because it's actually the best hummus in the world. Chickpeas everywhere sigh a little in sadness if, upon being harvested, they find themselves headed to a destination other than Nate's Deli. Do yourself a favor and get the combination plate - hummus, baba... More

This place has the best hummus in the city.. Excellent middle eastern food, simple menu, even a decent offering for breakfast if you make it in before 11am. Owners are nice people, hard working people straight from Lebanon. If you are looking for a great place to have lunch, this is a good choice if you are in the area.... More

It's crowded and crazy because it is GREAT. The food is ridiculously genuine--I love the falafel roll and tabouleh for lunch. Inexpensive, fun and there's a regular who's who of Cleveland meandering through for an offbeat business lunch.

When we were searching the West Side Market for a corned beef sandwich, one of the purveyors suggested we try Nate's just up the street. What a great recommendation! My husband had his corned beef Reuben and pronounced it wonderful. But it's not just a deli. There's a whole Middle Eastern side to the menu. My choice, the vegetarian combo,... More

Nates is a family fun business that serves mostly Lebanese food, but also American. They seriously have the best falafels in Cleveland by far, and they cost $3.50, where else can you have lunch for that price? I enjoy giving business to local businesses and would suggest nate's to anyone who wants a not fancy, but very delicious lunch or... More
