“Good food--and I'm not a lebanese food fan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Went here for a coworkers bday lunch and the food was very good. Obviously it was hit or miss, some things I really liked while others (like babganoush) I detested, but overall I liked quite a bit more than I expected to, the service was good, and the presentation of the food was appealing and convenient (trays with multiple dividers for each different portion of food).

“Great Food and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

This was my third trip to Taverna. I have yet to be dissatisfied. The offerings are plentiful, the food is tasty, and the servings are appropriately sized. The service is always good and the staff friendly.

“Reilable Lebanese food from a local small chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

There are several tavernas that have been in the DC area for decades and this Pentagon City location is welcome for the shopper or local worker. Food is always good and reliable. The dining room can be a bit loud if it is full but it is not overwhelmingly so. If you like Lebanese food, this is an excellent choice to break up a shopping trip.

“Enjoyable meal and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Lebanese food here is delicious and worth a visit when in the DC area. Service was excellent. Food, especially lamb dishes, was superb. Worth the money. We liked this place so much, we went back for dinner a second night.

“Welcoming Lebanese Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Had dinner at the Taverna on a Friday evening. Great variety of food at affordable prices, and the freshly baked Lebanese bread is very much worth the visit alone! Try the Lebanese sampler and enjoy the wide-range of homemade fare.
