“Love this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Have been here a number of times but keep neglecting to review it. The food is consistently good. The atmosphere is usually crazy, but that hasn't affected the service in my experience. Make a reservation on the weekends. Last night we had stuffed grape leaves, a wonderful cold eggplant dish and a great special platter with hummus, cucumber salad, chicken and rice. Always a fun evening.

“Tasty Food, Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Excellent bread made on premise, and love the garlic sauce. Shrimp entree and salmon entree were good and tasty. Can't say the noisy couple with two children were a great addition to the experience, but the restaurant cannot be responsible for this. I will go back and hope for a quieter experience, sans naughty little girl.

“A Tasty Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

If you’re looking for a flavorful meal, try Lebanese. And, if you’re going to try Lebanese, go to Lebanese Taverna Restaurant in Arlington. The food has a unique blend of Middle Eastern spices that make this a great cuisine. Cumin, coriander and cardamom are just some of the possibilities
Like me, try the sampler to immerse yourself in a variety of dishes. For $13 at lunch you can experiment. It starts with the fresh hot bread. Bread that comes in handy to make your own “hot pocket”
The service was great and the aroma is mouth watering. The prices are moderate. Give yourself time for dessert.
