The beautiful interior features tall windows that look out on the water and ceilings that billow down like the sails of a ship.

I was in a group of 14 business associates and this restaurant had been chosen by our host. We had endured a long and tiring day of meetings and negotiations and I felt like doing nothing else than going back to my hotel room to chill out. The last thing I wanted was to go out to dinner with the people I had been working with all day. We arrived and fortunately someone from our group had visited the restaurant before and had the foresight to order for us. That was just fine. It saved us the hastle of having to decide another thing on a day of tough decisions! The meal started with our waiter delivering to the table an almost endless supply of lebanese pockets, falafel, hummus and other spreads, salad and other spicy tomato mixes. We proceeded to almost eat our fill only to discover that what we had thought was the meal was just the appetiser! We were subsequently arraigned with a variety of salads, and cooked food which was just delightful. Of course there was much more than any of us could possibly finish. Our waiter was very friendly, and very efficient. We were seated in a separate room and thus had some privacy. We could see that the restaurant outside our room was very full. I am not at all surprised that it is popular. It would appear that it would be advisable to book if you expect to get a seat. We were there on a Tuesday night. I imagine it would be even busier on other nights as Tuesday can be somewhat of a quiet night at a restaurant. Not here!! Don't miss this resaurant if you are visiting down-town Baltimore and appreciate lebanese food.

It's a large restaurant in the harbor east area. Good location and service. First time visited with friends and on the next visit with family. the quantity of food is good and it is tasty. ordered the chefs platter and the presentation was elegant and all mezze items were delicious. also enjoyed their halloumi pita sandwich. Overall its a good option to eat if you are in the neighborhood, due to its size seating may not be an issue either.

Lebanese Taverna exceeded expectations.

Sunday brunch is a great time to hit this place up as it's not as busy and feels a bit more relaxed. Parking, as usual for Harbor East, isn't necessarily friendly, but there's always ways around that. Decor is contemporary and modern with a little Middle Eastern flare.

Food was not outstanding, but was decent nonetheless. The lamb ouzi was rather good, the chicken shawarma was okay, but the cold mezza was pretty mediocre. Nevertheless, dessert kicked butt. Lebanese Taverna's baklava was impressive and different, while the warm awamat (sweet donuts) were awesome if you can take a lot of sweetness. On a side note, I should also mention that the complimentary Lebanese bread was fantastic.

Service was immaculate and extremely accommodating. Lebanese Taverna is definitely good for groups. Our server was very attentive -- food came out quickly, drinks and bread were constantly refilled, and he made separate checks for 15 people seem like a cinch.
