We had an over all great experience eating there. The service was excellent and the staff are the nicest and very friendly. The food was really amazing, fresh and authentic. Hands down the best lebanese food we've ever had. Also, the place has a very nice atmosphere within a beautiful historic building. Would definitely recommend it to any one visiting... More

Had appetizers and drinks here with friends. Food was great , would like to return for a meal in the future. Attentive service, a lovely belly dancer, and a cozy setting in an historic building.

Close to downtown-just past a deliciously-smelling food cart area. Beautiful old building: Bishop's house. The baba ganoush and kaftan were tasty. Good red wines as well.

Excellent Lebanese food, from tea, beer and very good dishes. If you are not familiar with this cooking, ask advice from the waitress. The building is quite unique. It is called the "Bishop's House", with a design that combine church features with the ones of a house. Highly recommended.

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant for 15+ years. It's one of our all-time favorite's anywhere, not just P-town. Not only is the food fantastic, but the owners and service are second to none. We absolutely love this place and couldn't recommend it more highly! When we lived downtown & then in the Pearl (bk =...

Our first visit to Al-Amir. We were searching for specific Lebanese dishes, and we found it here. Our dining experience was excellent. Authentic garlic sauce (toom) and excellent lamb, with a very special Lebanese wine. The owners/family were very welcoming and friendly. Great food.

We love this restaurant and wouldn't dream of leaving Portland without at least one meal here. We are always treated like family and the food is delicious! We have two picky teenagers and they LOVE this place. Try the Lebanese "margarita"...it's amazing! We've been several times and never been disappointed. The prices are great and the food even better!

Great middle eastern cuisine that always has fast and friendly service. The bartender, Mo, is one of the most friendly, hard working bartenders in the city. He's a great guy that is always welcoming and pours a stiff drink. You cannot go wrong on any of their dishes!

The best falafel I have ever had! It makes me think that everything else I have had was frozen. The rice was nutty and fluffy and was a great complement to the delicious lamb. Delicious hummus and eggplant with warm break. The tea complemented everything for a amazing meal. I will go again and take friends.
