I just love this place!
This Sunday everything was perfect!
Not one single negative thing to say.
It is worth noting that the waiters were generous and got us double portions from everything we liked.
Of course, all the desserts were impeccable.
Just perfect... It never disappoints.

This was my third visit to Em Sharif. It is a set menu of more food than you could fully enjoy, beginning with a starter course of multiple vegetarian dishes, beautifully presented and described. It is followed by mixed grill dishes and finished with more sharing dishes of amazing desserts, all in Lebanese style except for the whimsical ice cream and cones dish. The serving staff hovers and serves, more than justifying the pricey meal. The room is opulent and the decor invites commentary. Why is the ceiling only half done? Stay until 11pm when the live music begins. Traditional songs complete the full experience as the scent of the bubbly bubbly fills the air. Yes, there is smoking! But . . .I will be back.

Em Sharif is a Lebanese/Syrian restaurant that has a set menu (about 50$/pers. for lunch, 70$/pers. for dinner). The quantity and quality of food compensate the prices. You will enjoy every moment at this restaurant as the atmosphere is very classy and luxurious. While you stuff yourself with the delicious food you enjoy a live oriental band in the evening. Make sure to reserve two days a head since it is always full. Highly recommended.
