Outside old, Inside Wow! Yesterday I went with my family for a lunch in Em Sherif restaurant, the place was located in a calm heritage street. When I entered the place I was surprised about the interiors of the place, wonderful plates was hanged on the facing wall of the entrance! The tables, chairs, lights and the amazing antique accessories were all well placed! The food was delicious and fresh contained various Lebanese menu's set, added to this a perfect qualified service. I highly recommend this restaurant to whom that want good quality in perfect prices.

i was really hoping for a good experience given these reviews, but it was truly awful. it's overpriced, pretentious, far from authentic, and the food is really not that good! This will be good for someone who has never had Middle Eastern food before as they get to try many dishes. but if you're looking for good and authentic Lebanese food, avoid this place!

This restaurant provides very good traditional lebanese cuisine in a very nice setting and ambiance. The Mezzas are plentiful, delicious and presented in a very unique way. A piece of advise: save room for desserts. They are also delicious.

So I adore Lebanese cuisine but this is a different level of it ... The amount of appetizers they have and the taste of each is just exquisite !! Couldn't even try the main dishes servedas I was full and I had to leave space for desert which was bombastic fantastic seriously.
Service is beyond perfect ...
