“Funky place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I specifically went to Cedars looking for vegetarian fare. Traditionally, Lebanese/Mid-East food is heavy on the lamb, but the appetizers are often vegan, if you have the courage to skip the feta. Vegetables were fresh and nicely prepared. Nothing soggy. I was told by the meat eaters that the lamb was tender and quite good.

The food was very good and reasonably priced. And there was a belly dancer. They also have a hookah bar outside, if that's to your taste.

“Decent, not grrrrrrrrrreat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

A little hard to find, went by it twice and missed it.....Nice decor, clean and music was John Tesh not expected Middle Eastern buzuq or oud. Service decent. Hummus - very good as were the freshly baked pitas. The Shawarma - dry, overcooked and lacking spices - I had better on the street in Beirut (dodging bullets !!!). Wife had the mixed grill which was a blend of shishkebab, kafta and tawook - nothing to brag about - had better in Amman. I will give them another try but this one was just fair. Tab was $75.00, add the tip and its a $90.00 dinner for two...............

“save your money!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I was there for my wife's birthday, we like Arabic food , this place should be called Ali Baba and the forty thieve, food was in small portion ( 21,00 dollars) for a mixed grill that has no taste, meat smelled and dry, service was terrible, don't waste your money in a such place, smoke was coming out from next door hookah joint.

“Great find for Lebanese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

Had almost given up trying to find a good Lebanese restaurant when we came across this place. The gentleman who served us (not sure if he was the owner) could not do enough for us, excellent service. Food was great the tabbouleh was spot on, all food was lovely but the cedar's chicken was amazing. I ordered a glass of red wine and our server brought out a bottle for me to try, when i said yes it was lovely he poured me a huge glass. After having several disappointing meals in Orlando was happy to find this place.
