We were around 28 people, so it was a big group. The service was still top notch, the food came in fast and was really amazing. There was also a small local band singing to some popular arabic tunes. It was really a perfect experience, i recommend anyone to visit Em Sherif when looking for the perfect lebanese cuisine experience.

Had dinner again at Em Sharif in July 2014 and as usual it was amazing. One advice that you should be very hungry in order to keep up with the food that is being served. Everything tastes amazing and the atmosphere of the restaurant is great.

At Em Sharif, get ready to indulge yourself. It's a cozy middle eastern restaurant with traditional Lebanese food. There is no menu, food just keeps coming your way & each dish is better than the other! The service is great & prices are reasonable compared to the amount of food & service you get! I always make sure to pop in each time am in Beirut. Reservations are a must.

At Em Sherif I had an exquisit combination of food, entertainment and service in a luxurious settings. We enjoyed our time, we got a perfect service, food was all good from the cold mezzé to the final desert. On top of all that, we had a 3 performer band that added the magic to the dinner. And guess what...it not that expensive, with a US$60 per person it is a great value.
A must visit in Lebanon and probably the best place i visited during my annual visits to Lebanon.
one advice, go with a group of 4 or more, because there is a lot of food to eat off your mirror table.

Really good quality Lebanese food; excellent, fresh ingredients and recipes that don't stray too far from tradition. Go in a group of at least four, and order the set menu and let the restaurant do the thinking for you! The decor is a bit classy, and a bit funky all wrapped in together. You can enjoy Sheesa on the upstairs terrace, although it lacks some of the charm of the indoor area.
