I had the Tour of Lebanon Chef's Plate, so I could try several different things. It was perfect! I don't know the names of everything, but they were all good. I ate light so I could have dessert. I ordered Umi Ali, which was a bread pudding with coconut milk, pistachios, coconut, whip cream, honey drizzle and honey ice cream.... More

We ate here every single day of our conference days. Food is awesome and affordably priced. Great ambience inside the restaurant or you can be seated outside as well. They offer carry-out orders too. Servers/Restaurant staff are very courteous.

I love coming here with my family. Have never had a bad experience. Every time we stop by I never look at the menu. I always ask for what they recommend for me to have and I am never upset or let down by what is picked for me. Great food and amazing time.

Went there for lunch before taking the Metro to the airport. I read some other reviews on poor service, but I had no problem. Was there on a Wednesday around noon. Anyhow, the food was very good and the interior was very clean and cozy. I would go back here easily!

We held a family dinner at the restaurant on a weeknight before our daughter's wedding at the Omni Shoreham. The waitstaff was incredibly accommodating to our group and fully understood the nature of our gathering. The family style meal was an excellent way to handle the large group. Dishes were passed and shared and we all experienced the multiple food... More

We enjoyed our experience at this Lebanese Taverna, apparently one of many in the Washington, DC area. The charmer of the night was our waitress Tina who did an excellent job looking after us throughout the entire meal. Our party of seven ordered three appetizers. I only sampled two, the calamari and a hummus dish. Both were excellent. My wife... More

Maybe I'm spoiled because as a Detroiter, your choices of Middle Eastern food are endless and delicious. I thought this place was just ok. The location is great and it was pretty accessible. Food was relatively quick but almost a bit bland. Generous portions and friendly staff.

We ate inside and out. Both were good with the interior more spacious and elegant. The food was fresh, well presented and delivered in a timely fashion.

This restaurant is a little bit out from the centre of the city but easily reached by using the underground. We decided to try it after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The place was absolutely 'jumping' when we arrived. We had a drink at the bar whilst waiting for a table......around 20 mins Having read some of the recent reviews... More

Went here with my 9 - year old son for late lunch on Sunday afternoon. We ordered two sandwiches and I had red sangria. The food and my drink were delicious. Service was a disaster.... A waitress (Asian looking lady) was exceptionally unfriendly. She simply ignored us for a long time; when I tried to get her attention, she nodded... More

Description
Come see our new look with a contemporary feel in a refined setting with subtle touches of a Lebanese home. We've added seats to the bar and a new lounge too! Still great for groups of all sizes and the private room now seats 56 people. Located in walking distance from the Marriott Wardman Park and Omni Shoreham Hotels and directly across the street from the Woodley Park Metro station, our DC location is ideal for corporate and social events. Validated self-parking is also available in the garage directly behind the restaurant. The Cedar Room accommodates up to 60 people for a private seated event and 40 people for a standing reception. For smaller affairs, the room can be offered as a semi privately as well. The main dining room is also available for larger parties.
