My son had never had Lebanese food before so when he saw this restaurant he wanted to give it a try. My wife and I are fans of the cuisine so we leapt at the opportunity. That this is a family-owned restaurant really shows through in the way the staff treats the customers. Everyone who interacted with us was smiling, helpful, and attentive.
We started with the falafel platter, and each of us had an entree--we ordered a gyros sandwich, a kofta platter (I can never pass up kofta) and a chicken and lamb kabob platter. Two of the meals came with a fresh green salad that was more than just lettuce. (Why do garden salads never include radishes anymore? That is, everywhere else but here. That is a major plus in my book.)
We enjoyed everything, my son is now a fan of Lebanese food, and if we lived in the area it would be on our short-cycle list for restaurants to visit. We will make a point of stopping at Cafe Raouche on our next visit to the Washington, D.C. area.
