its not easy, but it is true. wonderfully amazing set menu, the food keeps coming, manage your eating to be able to taste everything and still make it to desserts, you must not be full in order to enjoy. the lower level is wonderfully decorated, its a lil too tight for me, I prefer the roof/ terrace, bigger tables more comfortable space. enjoy

I liked everything about this restaurant. The food was just too much for me to handle. We went there for lunch and it costed USD 38 per person on a weekday. It's a set menu so nothing for you to choose. The mezze is endless and they even refill if you need to. The main dish is usually grills or kebbe bel laban. Then finally comes the yummy desserts. We loved the mahalabia.

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 .
