The Cedars felt like a place where you go not just for Lebanese chow, but also to be with friends and, if you're lucky, to enjoy the live music they offer regularly. I went for dinner on Saturday, fairly late -- around 1030pm. No problem getting seated quickly inside. Service was punctual and efficient. I ordered the makanek (a sort of marinated sausage) to start with, and for an entree, the baked kibbeh. Both were tasty; the kibbeh, even though it looked like a modest portion, was surprisingly filling.
During dinner, I realized the music was from a live band in the crowded outside seating area (the waitress said they played on Wednesdays and on Saturdays). I could hear the pieces clearly inside and enjoyed the energy of the band as I dined, while the patrons without were dancing in a line between the tables out on the patio. I considered staying and nursing the iced tea until closing, just so I could listen to the music. I'd certainly like to return and try more of the items on their menu. Maybe next time I'll sit outside too (though it can be pretty loud out there).
Appetizer, entree and iced tea came to about $30, before tip. Located on the south side of W Sand Lake Rd, at the Dr. Philips Blvd intersection.
