A great place to sample a variety of mezza items. The food is very good and tasty, accompanied by the bread fresh out of the oven. For the dishes bearing the same names, I like their version better.

This is a small restaurant, but a busy one. The food comes to you quickly and it tastes so fresh. The portions were good, but were less than my friend had experienced before. I just enjoyed having some good Lebanese food! The roasted potatoes were awesome. I had shawarma, which was okay. The grape leaves were incredible and I could... More

i was raised on Middle Eastern food so I'm not the easiest client. To be frank, Lebanese Taverna's food is not 100% authentic; they have taken small liberties. But it is good. If you're looking for a pure Lebanese experience, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a 90% experience, with 100% good food and an affordable price, you'll be satisfied.... More

The biggest problem with this restaurant is deciding what to order as most choices are very delicious. We love the menu choices that allow us to select from the mezza menu. The falafel is great and we also love the hummus, but we thought there was entirely too much parsley in the taboulli salad.

This place was unexpectedly good. We had originally intended to go to Baja Fresh (which is next door), however they had no idea what was in the food they were serving and I cannot eat cumin (as it gives me migraines), so we went with plan B and gave this place a try. The server was v polite and friendly,... More

I've been to this location a few times. The service and food have always been pretty good. It's a great place to grab lunch.

We decided on this restaurant among several in the vicinity and were pleased. The atmosphere was good, nothing fancy. The service was good, and the food was excellent. It was good also to be in line with people who were regulars and gave us suggestions what to order. I'm not sure you could go wrong on the menu.

Went in and ordered the Feast for 2, it was more like a feast for 4, it was excellent all dishes were tasty and spiced perfectly. We took friends in on a second try, the food was amazing the Lamb Shank fell off the bone with a hint of Middle Eastern spices. The Pita was fresh baked, it really does... More

I decided to return to this location because I had a good experience the first time I visited (wrote a revue on that visit as well). To my surprise my second visit didn't go so well. I ordered the chicken kabobs which comes with a salad and as I was eating I noticed the tomato looked as though it had... More
