If you are looking for a restaurant that serves the best and most delicious Lebanese food ın Lebanon, you need to visit Em Sharif. At first, once they start to place the small and many dishes in front of you , you feel like it's not enough to fulfill your hunger. But once you start tasting a bite from here and there, you will feel like how the hell i am going to taste all this. Because each plate is an experience by itself. The decoration is very unique and rustic making you live the old Beirut. 4 stars just because the waiters were not so friendly under pressure.

If you are willing to taste the authentic Lebanese cuisine , this is the place . A nice place to dine and enjoy light traditional music and taste a large variety (mostly all ) of traditional tasty food .
A must to try, won't regret it.

very good food, have been there many times because of their excellent appetizers and exquisite dishes, but the service is the typical Lebanese overbooked restaurant with understaffed waiters who know that you will stay regardless of their bad service because of the good food and the "brand", their shisha is ridiculously bad on all levels. good for a date, and friends and business, surely not kids friendly.

It is surely a culinary trip into the old traditional Levantine food menu with its Aleppian and Turkish influence... with a Lebanese touch.

Once you’ve tried this exquisite fine Lebanese cuisine place , you’ve tried it all.

Set in a traditional palace dining hall setting, this place offers a service second to non at any standard.

The whole experience gets boosted with a wonderful Oud live music .

I have been invited to this restaurant three times this year, the last being in June. The place is nicely decorated, the silverware is so fancy as if you are dining in a palace, and the staff are very professional. The food is always a set menu with many different dishes that all tasted great. The only problem was that the portion size is rather small, so it is not possible to get more than a tablespoon or two of each dish. It feels like you are in a tasting fair.
In the end you feel stuffed with all that you have eaten. Overall experience is nice but you pay more than you get.
