Em Sherif is the very BEST Lebanese cuisine in all of Lebanon, same level as Babel or a bit higher I might say.
Amazing food and service!
Either you are going for lunch, brunch or dinner or just for desserts and Smoke shisha its the place to be!
the prices are above Average due to its location in an expensive area, even if you attend with no reservation the staff are professional dealing with it, coming from a person who owns restaurants in the US.
I might suggest to add to their menu grape leaves and Cheese rolls
their signature dish to order is the Shawarma and Falafel yummm
going tomorrow to this place ;-)

We tried to book for dinner but they were full! - we tried our chances showing up at 1pm for lunch and got seated right away (thanks to a cancellation)

The menu is prix fix and made up of cold mezze, hot mezze and grilled meats. There is something for everyone - the highlights hummus, babaganoush, stuffed grape leaves, the grilled meats etc etc ...

Please go hungry!

The food is delicious. ..be sure to try the "Maqaneq" and the spiced potatoes. Best mottabal ever.
The only downside is that it's very busy and we had to stand for like half an hour waiting for a table.

Em Shérif is a traditional Lebanese restaurant with mezzes and Lebanese delicacies, but the way the food is served, as well as the taste, is simply WOW and out of this world. A little expensive though.
