“Really unsatisfactory Lebanese Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

After living in the Middle East for so long, eating the food here was a disappointment.

Because we were brown, we got the worst service, it was so obvious that the other customers got more attention.
I was totally unsatisfied with the quality of the food. The chicken was dry and too chewy.
The grilled items were too dry as well, almost like it was left on the grill for way too long.
It was a mistake ordering the La Luna Platter. The salads were soggy as well.

I kept wondering, why am I ruining my night eating at this place!!

That the was the first and last time I've been to the restaurant. This is disappointment in the name of Middle Eastern Food! I can see how this place gets 5 star ratings are from people whose palettes are not accustomed to the real taste of Lebanese delicacies. I've had a lot of friends tell me the food is good, but I was not satisfied - at all!

The food might have been disappointing as a one off thing, which happens sometimes to good restaurants, but the service - it was offensive. They didn't even ask us how our food was and just threw the bill book on our table. This kind of service is what you don't expect from good establishments!

“Original and different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012 via mobile

Really good food. They catered a fundraiser we hosted in November. The food was very light. The service was OK, could have been better at refilling the food. The atmosphere at our event mixed well with the food that was being served. I would recommend this food as a catering option.

“Open and Willing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

We're regulars at La Luna for take-out: shish tahook sandwiches and fatoosh salads are fabulous and we never tire of them. However, we had out of town company and were looking for a special place on the long weekend. La Luna is often open when others aren't. The Mazza combination special and the La Luna Platter were enjoyed by our guests immensely, providing a wonderful selection of tastes and textures as a wonderful introduction to their Lebanese treats. The food is flavourful, fresh, and plentiful -- and the service is always pleasant.
