Don't let the size fool you

Wow! This place doesn't look like much from the street but don't let that stop you. My lunch was great. The fattoush (split between two) was one of the best I have had. It was crowded at luch and after eating there I know why. Good size portions. I noticed wait staff knew regulars and their... read more

Just a little old deli next to the west side market. Park in west side market parking and enter this place from their rear entrance. Classic. You cut through a narrow hall, through the tiny kitchen, past the family cooking and cleaning. Grab a table and order up some Lebanese food. Shawarma sandwich with tahini sauce and a side of...

Really enjoyed eating there. The service was great and the food was great! The grape leaves were superior! Tender and we'll prepared. Also, the kibee was wonderful. I will definitely go back!

This was my first time experiencing Lebanese cuisine. The service is friendly and I had a traditional gyro which was good. The stuffed grape leaves are good also. Parking is available on the street at a parking meter or behind the building.

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
