Tried this place several times but fell in love with their eftar menu ! they redefine classiness ! the food is great yo ucan't just describe it until you taste it ! i prefer sitting on their couches because the chairs are so straight up ... The only con is you have to reserve before a long time especially on occasions , and they close in the afternoon so no late lunches !

Beirut is full of great restaurants with great quality and taste, they vary in certain dishes, presentation or some items in the menu, but yet they are all the same.. Same mezza and same main dishes at the end ..
But Em Sharif is an exception, it's so unique in every item they present, the taste and the ideas are different, authentic yet novel , the set menu in Ramadan was flawless, each and every item was an experience,cold starters, hot mezza, main dishes and desserts .. It was a truely delightful experience , highly recommended and reservationis a must

this place is for sure one of the best places in the city of Beirut for lunches or dinners, I was there for Ramadan's Iftar and the food was splendid and so was the service.
