“Great Lebanese Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Lebanese Taverna offers great Lebanese food. Although there is limited parking, Lebanese Taverna has warm, fresh pita bread and wonderful hummus. Their treasure, though, is the chicken schwarma sandwich.

“Authentic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I stopped in for lunch while attending a conference. The chicken swarma was excellent as well as the hummus. The service was a bit slow but the waiters were very friendly and attentive!

“Lucky to have as a neighbor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

The food at this restaurant is great and we are lucky to have it tucked in our Arlington neighborhood of Westover.

The seating is very tight but people who dine downtown in tight urban restaurants won't be bothered. It's worth it for the great Lebanese food.

“Good food - very good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This was my first trip to a Lebanese restaurant. The waiter was excellent - made suggestions, was attentive but allowed my friend and I plenty of privacy. Great atmosphere and did not feel rushed. I had the Taverna sampler with lamb and enjoyed it very much in terms of presentation and taste. Next time I'll be more adventurous with my selections but it was a great introduction to this cuisine.
