We were in town for a convention, looking for an afternoon snack. Nadim's seemed to be just right. We had the Hummas/nachos on pita chips. It was fresh delicious and just the right snack for a mid afternoon treat. They have a variety of dishes, and the kids at the next table had hamburgers so don't let the Middle Eastern... More

I'm so glad you had a convention here in town so you come by and give us a try! It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed, the Hummachos, James. I wish customers could respond back on Tripadvisor, as I'd love to know if you'd ever tried anything like that before. Anyways, thanks for stopping by while you were in town. I... More

At the outset I must disclose I am of Lebanese decent. My Grandmother and mother made many of the dishes we ordered. The way they made them were not similar to what I experienced. You should also know that there were 10 of us for lunch, five from the same family. We ate a large sampling of the menu items,... More

I am sincerely sorry to hear about the loss you and your family experienced. Best wishes go out to you all. I can completely understand how your mother's cooking would've been exactly what you needed during this time, and I wish I could've made your meals just like she did. Like you said, flavors vary with each chef and the... More

Kabob was amazing. Thought it was a little over priced until I tasted the food. Lentil soup is like no other I have ever tasted. It is purée but out of this world. Enjoy!

Indoor and outside seating plus bar. The interior has two sides but open on each side. It was not noisy, able to carry on constant conversation. Food is fresh and well prepared. We had appetizers for lunch and entrees for dinner. The servings were ample. It took awhile to get our food (not excessive) but worth it. I would definitely... More

Thanks for that recommendation! It's always nice to have a conversation where you're not talking over everyone, isn't it? :) Hope the rest of your trip was awesome, and that we'll see you around should you make it back to the area. Travel safe, Chef Nadim More

Lamb was tough; kafta was dry; wings were so so; wait time was forever; only one of our party of four enjoyed his meal... he had a steak kabob.

Nadim K, Owner at Nadim's Downtown / Cafe Lebanon, responded to this review

I'm very sorry to hear the lamb was tough -- it's our specialty, so it sounds like something might've been off. I'll check in with my guys in the kitchen to assure it won't happen again. I'm very happy the meal had at least one saving grace with those steak kabobs, however, we'll strive to get you some better dishes... More

I ate here while attending the 2015 National Square Dance Convention. It was halfway between my hotel and the convention center. The food was outstanding. On different nights I had both the lamb and the kofta kebab, both times with their house rice. One of my dining companions also raved about their scallops. The first night I ate there I... More

We really enjoyed our light meal at Nadim's. We had the scallops--the portion was only two, but the quality was top-notch. The fusion "nachos" were interesting. The fresh lemonade was good.

Glad you were able to find something that suited you, Ann! I'm really happy you loved the scallops and the lemonade, too. Really hope to have you back soon for perhaps a heavier dinner one day! I'm sure you'd love it. :) Yours, Chef Nadim More
