Ate here with a girlfriend I had the fatoush salad and hummus, she had the chicken shawarma . The chicken was overcooked and dry. The hummus was OK but not the best, it had a different flavor but I can't put my finger on what was different about it. That the fatoush salad was good, but would've preferred a few... More

I was told this could be one of the best Lebanese Restaurants in the area. Well whoever told me this he was wrong. The location is nice, view is great but the food is average and very pricy compared to many many middle Eastern eateries in the Detroit area. Service was good, and there was no complain. I would say... More

The patio is a perfect place to relax, take in the fresh air and enjoy the local atmosphere and have a meal of nicely prepared Mediterranean cuisine. We started with the Mixed Appetizer which included Hummus, Taboulee, Baba Gannouge and fresh made Pita bread. The presentation was great is each of the choices were very good. For lunch we ordered...

Fabulous chicken schwarma with just enough spice like I'm in the Mediterranean. With a glass of Chardonny it's perfect. Got hummus with warm bread for a beginning. Schwarma comes with couscous and hummus with either crushed lentil soup with correct amount of seasoning or house salad with raspberry vinegrette dressing. Cool atmosphere with summer outdoor seating it's a scene. A... More

Found Elie's walking the streets of B'ham over Christmas. Stopped in for cocktails. Great ambiance, awesome bartender and cozy decorations. Brought a large group back for dinner in January and we all enjoyed our food and appetizers. They have their menu on Ipads so you can pair the drinks to your meal - cool idea.

Enjoyed the chicken kabob and tasty (garlicky) hummus, My date had the chicken chopped salad, a favorite of his. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful and was quick to refresh the plate of warm pitas. Plan to return, no doubt

My husband and kids ended up here because Toast was closed. There weren't many other kid - friendly choices nearby. The food was okay. The real shock was the prices. My husband had a Greek salad with chicken and it was $18. If the salad had been phenomenal looking, I would have said that the price was fine. But it... More

The food is exceptional. Variety of lebanese dishes. Nice bar scene. Service is good and selection of wine and beer very good. Nice outside seating in the summer.

We wanted to like this restaurant more. There were plenty of options and as vegetarians it was no problem. The food was well prepared. The service was less than enthusiastic. I also don't recall the last time we got charged extra for a soda refill (especially at their prices). The waitress was non communicative and it was crowded. So yes,... More
