I have read about this place for some time. Finally came here. Food was a little slow, but good. I had cheese/zatar manakish. Staff apologized for the tardiness as they had just opened. Extremely professional and attentive staff.

Thank Kasey M

Having heard of Em Sherif a lot, decided to try it on a sunday at lunch, and then chose it to be the place where I will be celebrating my Engagement.
I wanted something classy, yet different, and at the same time enchanting. Most of all I wanted people to taste the best Lebanese Food and spend a great night while listening to the finest music of old arabic songs that History will keep on talking about.
From the minute we stepped into Em Sherif at that night, everything was perfect; friendly staff, welcoming and respectful.
Service was extraordinary, food was just WOW. from taste to presentation, variety and exquisite dishes that never stopped from filling the table and our tummy.
the sweets were literally the best I have ever tried at all other restaurants.
To make it short, I am delighted to have celebrated my special day at Em Sherif, and will definitely recommend it to everyone aiming for a unique experience of Lebanese food. Thumbs up for all the perfect work !!

It was almost midnight when we arrived into our hotel. After checking in we started to look for a place to eat.
This was the place we ended up and what a service!!!!

The food was excellent, the service was excellent and it was really very good value for our money.

Em Sharif is one of the best examples for a true Lebanese food. The ingredients used are top of the line and the service is implacable. It is highly recommended.

I hear the food is great here but there isn't an inch of space that isn't packed to the gills with hookah smoke. Inside and outside the place is one sweet smelling hookah place. We tried to eat here as its reputation seems to be legendary but upon arrival and finding out that both inside and out were designated smoke areas, we opted NOT to eat here. We will have to believe everyone that the food is good...

Dear Rana,
Thank you for your honest feedback.
We deeply apologize you encountered the smoking issue, kindly note that we do take extra measures with our ventilation systems in order to maintain a smoke-free environment, however sometimes it's hard to manage when it gets too crowded.
We do hope you don't judge the entire restaurant by this one experience, we strive to always better serve our guests.
Thank you and we hope to see you again soon.
