Description: Lebanese Taverna creates an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Each restaurant is a "home away from home," even though the food and ambiance are from across the globe. Whether you are visiting for the first time, the twentieth, or have been coming to a Lebanese Taverna for over 29 years, you will feel welcomed and like a member of the family. The atmosphere is bustling and each of the restaurants has its own design and slightly different flavors. That is because the food is made fresh, and each Chef has his or her own "touch" that keeps you coming back for more. We look forward to serving you again and again.

We found this restaurant more by accident than anything. First time we made reservations online for 8 people when there wasn't room, but the manager did everything possible to get us seated in a very reasonable amount of time. Everytime we have gone the service has been wonderful. The food is great. Love the hot olives and the platter with... More

Not your everyday restaurant but very good Mediterranean food. Tasty varied options allow diners to sample without too much risk. The mezza plate is a great choice if you can't make up your mind. Watch out, the bread is very habit forming and goes down well with your food. Charming in its own way. This location is always busy but... More

I've visited all but one location (Baltimore) of this restaurant and it's fantastic. The food is so good that after my second or third trip I decided to just order down the menu. I started at the top of the appetizer and entree sections and, in order, tried each item on subsequent visits. I've never been disappointed. My personal favorites... More

We eat at this restaurant whenever visiting the area-have never had a bad experience with the food. The hummus and pita are to die for. It is a noisy, bustling restaurant, so not a place to go for a quiet dinner.

We have eaten here every time we are in this area and are never disappointed. The food is fresh and very tasty - not too strong flavored - just right. The lamb shank is outstanding! Try some kibbe nahey and hummus for appetizers - delish!

I liked it all, the drinks, the appetizers, the main course, all excellent. The service was great. I had a Lebanese sampler-type dish and we ate about five small servings of various hummus. They want you to enjoy your meal and make it a very nice experience.

We ate here twice during our visit. Both nights we had dishes that blew us out of the water: grilled octopus, hummus trio, stuffed sausage, & shrimp. Bread was divine. The calamari was decent, but not especially memorable. The artichokes and falafel fell short of our expectations. Overall... we loved the outdoor seating. The staff was exceptionally helpful with recommendations.... More

Lebanese Taverna has found a way to make a traditional Middle Eastern experience into a quick dine out, without sacrificing too much in flavor. The staff is helpful, and the food is good - if the portions are a bit skimpy for the price. Having just come from two years in the Middle East the taste is authentic.

Wonderful selections of appetizers which we shared with our table of 9 diners. Nice and varied selections of entrees large enough for sharing. Plus deserts and a fantastic wine selection including Lebanese wines. The service was attentive and outstanding in every detail, even though it was very crowded.The chef came out and talked about the meals and made sure all... More

I've had some of the worst service at this restaurant -- so bad that they on their own gave me a free desert. Nonetheless, the food is good enough to make up for this weakness. If you like Lebanese food you should go here.
