This restaurant is a gem. Great food and service, and nice, casual decor. I work in Manhattan and Cedars is as good as anything New York has to offer...and at much more reasonable prices.

Freshly-prepared, beautifully-presented food at reasonable prices. Casual, intimate atmosphere in the Market area. Options include numerous small plates and multi-small plate deals for sharing. Share a dessert, too--dense, yummy treats. Decor includes souvenirs from Lebanon (shot glasses, plaques, etc.). Great for a low-key date, but service was a little too casual (wait staff texting, overheard asking each other who wanted... More

Thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. Server Malissa was engaging, knowledgeable and responsive. The food was delicious! We started with the hummus with beef shwarma and the stuffed grape leaves, awesome! The grilled lamb chops were cooked perfectly and served with steaming rice. Get a side of cucumber yogurt sauce to compliment it all. The kids chicken nugget platter is HUGE and... More

Our family has been to Cedars Lebanese Restaurant a few times and we really enjoy the food there. The food is fresh, appetizing and all for a good value in price. We like Mediterranean Style cuisine very much and have been happy with the service and food quality with every visit.

I have eaten there several Saturday afternoons recently and have enjoyed each meal. The food is very tasty and authentic. It's not a large place nor does it have much atmosphere, but the food was good. I have had the chicken kabob and the chicken shwarma(?) wraps. The waitress was very good, quick and had a fun personality.

Went for our anniversary. Can honestly say I did not enjoy it at all. Everything we tried had the same flavor. Which I must say was not very tasty.

I'm not sure what everyone has raved about when it comes to Cedars. The food was decent, but I don't think it is worthy of the #1 spot in the City of Roanoke. (Besides, everything I ordered: hummos, tabbouleh, and a salad, was too lemony.)

We recently had the pleasure of dining at this small but up and coming treasure of a restaurant. It was a busy Friday night. The food was colorful and full of flavor. The wine was paired perfectly with our entrees and the atmosphere seemed to fit the cuisine but the what was most intriguing was the waitress. She seemed to... More

My husband and I had no idea what to order. Our waitress ordered us the spinach appetizer. I had chicken kabobs and he had the lamb chops. Delicious! Definitely going again

Just left this restaurant... The food I have had at a local red cross event that I attended last month. The waitress spilled water on me, cleaned it up & yet never apologized. I didn't even flinch or get upset..just continued to read the menu. When we went to order she told us to "go for it" with very short... More
