Em Sherif was a total delight. We arranged a birthday dinner and booked a table on the upper level. From the moment we arrived to the restaurant, and were escorted to our table, we were looked after by an army of servers.

There is no menu to choose from. You simply relax, and are subjected to a wonderful assault on your taste buds, by an array of authentic Lebanese dishes with a twist. The presentation, taste, and imagination of the food was tantalising and delightful. You have to have a healthy appetite to sustain the great variety and number of dishes that were offered. The ambience was lovely, and the service was excellent, and professional.

The average per person per head came to around US$90, including alcohol. Good value for money, for the quality, quantity, and high standard that was offered.

I highly recommend this restaurant.

Most of the Lebanese restaurants across Beirut are pretty much the same, this one was different, the atmosphere was really nice, we were a big group , we used the 2nd floor, we could hear some live music downstairs, the quantity and " quality of food " was superb, the variety was enormous , never knew that they had these types of appetizers before . i ruined my diet with no regret , but frankly it was too much that i had to say no for so many things. The difference in service was that they individually offer you mezza, so for the warmhearted, it was not easy to say no.

Unique experience I had again at Em Sherif restaurant, I really feel as very special person when I go to this restaurant, I can't forget the nice taste of the food and the beautiful night I spent there with an authentic Lebanese singer.

Clean, organized, and beautifully oriental themed restaurant. I love the setting. This is the second time I am here, hoping to change my opinion about this place.The mezze the starters taste acceptable, but the cooked food has nothing to do with lebanese cuisine. The sweets are a disaster and prepared very wrong. They should get a good consultant for oriental or lebanese sweets preparation. This place should really be better.
