This place is really exquisite! From outside you point see a small sign written on it Em Sherif. But when you go inside it is very very impressive, the decoration, mirrors, chandeliers, vases.... We sat on the second floor, the murals are very impressive too. When the food started to come they were very well presented in Crystal. The taste is to die for for all the mezza. You also get fresh hot bread white and brown in addition to mini zaatar and meat saj. I adored the fatte batenjein. My favorite. The french fries, assbe chicken, grilled shrimps were all so good. I still have the taste under my teeth. I would highly recommend this unique place for unique people. This place made me Very proud of my lebanese root :). Cheers

We were a large group, seated on a 16 ppl table. The interior of the restaurant is a luxurious, modern and traditional Lebanese style, and there was a live band that played folkloric Lebanese music. The reservation was needed at-least two weeks in advance because of the high demand for this restaurant. Our seating was at 9 pm and as soon we sat the feast began. Every single dish that we were served was one culinary art as far as presentation and taste. We probably were served about total of 30 courses if not more! I was so stuffed towards the end that I could only eat 1 or 2 spoons of the last dishes, didn't want to miss anything. The service was absolutely professional. The price was more on $$$$ as it was expected but worth every penny. I thought I've had Lebanese food in U. S., but after that night I realized I was all wrong. I highly recommend for visitors to go an experiment this fantastic restaurant.
