Very nice place if you are sitting downstairs, we had a table upstairs and honestly I was not very impressed.
Looks like any other restaurant if you are upstairs.
The food is good though.

The best Lebanese restaurant by far. Beautiful oriental decor. Fine cutlery. Professional and super polite waiters. It's a set menu meal no matter how many you are on the table. A flow of delicious mezza plates. First come the cold then the hot ones. Traditional and innovative plates. Best quality and finest ingredients. A taste you will never forget and won't experience anywhere else. Then even if you were full from the mezza the mains will still land in front of you. I remember the freekeh and the barbecue. Once the food is removed the dessert turn comes. Real authentic Lebaneese Blueberry ice cream. The best oum Ali I tasted to date in addition to a special salad fruits among other delicious plates. We enjoyed the Arabic music band that made our night special. Wonderful service. Huge quantity of food. Price per person is pretty much expensive but considering what you get you wouldn't mind it. For your special occasions you can't be wrong with this place.

Em Sherif is a high ended prestige restaurant in the heart of Beirut. The chef has taken Lebanese food into a new level. The atmosphere speaks of finesse from the moment you enter. Would definitely visit again.
