“An Old Favorite Rediscovered”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

An Old Favorite Rediscovered

For some reason we’ve not visited the Lebanese Taverna in the Westover area for quite some time. Last week we were scouting our thoughts for a place to go for dinner and this old favorite popped into our heads. When we arrived we were greeted into the restaurant and seated immediately. The tables were tight and the place was hoppin’, but our waiter was at our table instantly and before we knew it, we were enjoying delicious martinis of two different flavors with our Baba ghanouj appetizer and complimentary fresh/hot pita bread. The restaurant’s decor has changed since our last visit, another lovely revision that exudes a warm atmosphere in a small space. Even though it was a full house when we arrived, we were able to have a nice conversation. We ordered the lamb Fatteh that was generous and the taste sensation we remembered. A serving of Tabouleh and a glass of Malbec rounded out the meal. We were too full for dessert, but our waiter surprised us with a complimentary dessert to take home. It was a delightful evening. We are putting this lovely neighborhood gem back on our top 10 list.

“A Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

This is an excellent choice for great food and friendly, efficient service. We have dined here many times and never had anything but a great experience. The menu has been recently revamped and now includes many gluten-free choices. We will continue to return.
