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!

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

Also, I'm just so happy you decided to dine with us twice. That's a huge testament to the quality of our food and service. Next time you're in the area, we do... 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

Eat Here! Downtown Springfield located between the Marriott, Sheraton and Mass Mutual Convention Center. Really wasn't expecting anything significant--Wrong! The ingredients are fresh and expertly prepared. Went for lunch and had to return the next day for dinner. Tabouli is perfectly crafted with fresh parsley, mint...everything. This was not soggy. The lemon dressing was crisp and light. The appetizer is... More

My husband and I had dinner at Nadim's before seeing a show at Symphony Hall. We had a nice booth in a quiet section of the restaurant; the section with the bar was more lively and there was also seating outside. It's a larger place than it seems from the street. Had no trouble being seated immediately at 6 on... More

Also, if there's ever an issue with us bringing the wrong sauce, just let us know. We'd be happy to replace it. :) Also,... More

Average Lebanese restaurant but overpriced for the quality. The wait staff are super friendly and attentive. We tried 4 of their appetizers and had a 50/50 experience: the Hummachos (hummus/nachos) were very good; their hummus is excellent; the scallops with mango salsa was just ok, their falafel was not good at all and do not recommend, their Kibbie Krass just...
