The era of the Ottoman Empire and Alexander the Great, past rulers of the Levante region, is now history, but the culinary and cultural traditions live on.The tastes and flavors of that golden age come alive at Levante's. All dishes are made in the Levante tradition using only fresh ingredients. For centuries, these qualities have allowed people of the Mediterranean to eat well and live long healthy lives. Today at Levante's diners can enjoy the variety, freshness and the natural health benefits of this legendary cuisine. Levante's is the first restaurant group to offer eastern Mediterranean cuisine in a casual dining environment. Natural stone and light wood interiors envelope guests. Open kitchens and wood-fired ovens produce charcoal - grilled meats and vegetables, which are prepared in full view of diners.

“Great restaurant and reasonably priced for Dupont Circle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

This is a great Turkish restaurant close to the circle, with dining inside or outside. The menu selection had a wide variety of Turkish foods to choose from. I tried an appetizer that was a combination of the various appetizers they had. It was excellent! The appetizer was such a full plate of the various food items on the appetizer menu, I had to cancel my dinner order which was recommended and I'm sure would have been delicious, but I was already full, half-way through my appetizer! The staff was very accommodating, helpful and attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you enjoy cultural food.

“An Excellent Brunch with full of Mediterranean Goodies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Slightly above average decore, good service and "excellent" food. Very generous selection for an all you can eat brunch. A very modest price.
Every thing was very tasety and probably authentic as well.
Outdoor tables are a good choice in good weather.
Love to go to see their dinner menu and service.

“Outstanding Mediterranean Deliciousness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Fabulous lunch spot near DuPont Circle. Excellent service and even better food. You'll start with warm, fresh round flatbread and olive oil. Soup, salad and appetizers were fantastic. Will definitely come here again and highly recommend. Levante's in DC
