I recently visited Em Sherif with a group of 26 people for a business dinner. We were served more than 30 Meze dishes during the evening. The staff, service and food were excellent. The food overall was the best food experience I have ever had anywhere in the world. There is not a single dish that I would not want to have again. If I could I would go back to this restaurant every day as the food is amazing. There is not a single person in our group that didnt say this was the best dinner of their lives. The hype and buzz from everyone after we left the restaurant was enough to tell you how much we all enjoyed or evening. Prior to going out for dinner one of our local hosts mentioned that Lebanese food was voted the best food in the world. He certainly wasnt wrong as this restaurant proved this in no uncertain terms. All I can say is absoluetly amazing and averyone visiting Beirut needs to make sure they booke adinner here to exerience the best food they will ever eat.

The service was very good and the atmosphere delightful. The live music came on towards the end of the evening. People sang along, some danced. Delightful. We were on the 2nd floor.

Service: 1/5
Atmosphere on the 2nd floor: 1/5 (they even played Christmas songs)
Food Quality: 2/5 (shish taouk and the lamb kebab were too mediocre)
Food Quantity: 2/5. The hot mezze was just 4 dishes.

Overall: if you want a real lebanese experience, and a great mezze, just go to Babel which is just 20 euros more per person.

Price per person at Em Sheriff: 55 euros
At Babel: 75 euros
