“Great Middle Eastern Faire”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Locate on the westside of the Pentagon City Mall, the Lebanese Taverna serves awesome middle eastern/mediterranean food. Service is always outstanding and pay attention to the waiters recommended specials! There can be bit of a wait, but well worth it!

“Great food in a convenient location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We've always been fans of the Lebanese Taverna restaurants, and the location at Pentagon Row never disappoints. We especially enjoy eating outside, when the weather permits.

Highlight: Sampler platters which give you the chance to enjoy several of their wonderful appetizers

“Authentic. Great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We took the Metro to Pentagon City.Lebanese Tarverna situated just outside the fashion mall,with a skating rink right infront of it. Very festive!
Seating was fast. Our server was extremely helpful, spending time to explain what's in each dish.
He first serve us basket of hot steamy and puffy pita with dipping olive oil.
We ordered traditional Mezza platter; eggplant fatteh; Sharhat Ghanam; lamb fatteh.
They were all delicious and well presented.
Must try the desserts,we had tahini creme brulee and some kind of Lebanese dougnut.
Totally stuffed and satisfied.

“Dinner for 24”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We had preordered and the meal was served family style. Staff did an excellent job managing the group. The food was very good, and our diverse group was very happy with the food, even those who were concerned that it would be "too different". The place was packed on a Thursday evening.
