I went to Em Sherif when it first opened its doors , the atmosphere was charming , live music all dedicated to the great Lebanese legend "Feyrouz" , the decor is beautiful, the food is wonderfuly cooked and presented, it's Lebanese food with a twist and this is what this outsanding cuisine really needs .
The most amazing thing in the restaurant is the service and the personal attention of the owner herself to details , she is really involved in every aspect , the food ,the presentation , the decor , the ambiance ... in my opinion this is the recipe for success.
What is amazing as well, is that Lebanese gourmet normally get tired of going to the same place and they always seek something new , but Em Sherif managed to keep them coming for more, simply because it's amazing .

I used to work as a concierge in one of the biggest hotels in Beirut and to be honest the amount of tourists asking for a reservation in Em Sherif was surprising. This restaurant was on top of every tourist's list of what to do in Beirut.
So this obviously made me curious to see what Em Sherif is about. I am happy to say that Beirut should be proud to have a restaurant like this one.
Let me tell you that it is not only about having dinner, it's about a whole experience.
The decoration would truly impress you. Authentic, elegant decor does not even begin to describe it.
As for the food; Em Sherif's concept is to offer a set menu that really blows your mind away! From the way the food is served to the table, to the way it is presented, to the way it tastes... really perfect.
It is so varied, all you have to do is pick and choose !
Desserts ? They're pretty awesome! Make sure you try Em Ali :)
The staff makes sure to go the extra mile for you, during the whole dinner I did not need to ask the waiters for anythn because they really do anticipate your needs.
Every penny spent in this restaurant is big time worth it! :)
