Enjoyed a great dinner on the patio prior to the thunderstorm moving in and forcing us inside. The food was excellent. The service was outstanding. Very attentive and accommodating waitstaff. Not only accommodated us in moving to an inside table to avoid a thunderstorm (even carried our water glasses in for us) but then grabbed an umbrella and walked my daughter and her friends to meet their cab. Highly recommended.

I came here with several colleagues for dinner on a Wednesday night. It was busy but our table was ready immediately (we had reservations). The waiter was great: good recommendations and quite engaging. We had grape leaves and hummus appetizers. I had shrimp arak for dinner which I thought was delicious. I would be pleased to dine here again.

Nice atmosphere and the outdoor seating is great if the weather is right. The waiter was very attentive and helpful with his recommendations. Their menu had so many options and a great selection of gluten free dishes. The food was delicious. I like it when I can select several smaller dishes rather than one large entree, it feels like I'm getting much more and it's a great way to try new things. The cocktails were also very good. I will definitely return and would recommend it for others.

I have been to the Lebanese Taverna several times in recent months. It is a lovely experience. The baba ganoush is amazing, I hate eggplant, and I loved it anyway. The bread is always hot and fresh, and is wonderful with the aforementioned baba ganoush as well as the hummus.

Service is always lovely. We have been treated pleasantly, and are always welcomed. Our servers have always been aware of where we are in the meal, and making sure we need what we want. We have never been disappointed.

The only dessert we have had there is so good, we go back just for it. It is the molten lava cake with a schmir of home made marshmallow and pistachio ice cream. It is just wonderful, although we always wish for more of the marshmallow. Yummy!!!!

Was surprised by the quality and authenticity of the food at what promised to be nothing more than a upscale urbanite chain restaurant. Several of us had the sampler plates which came with around 9 different dishes and was plenty of food. Each dish was really good ( I have a part Lebanese wife who loves to cook) and was real Lebanese style food. My wife had the lamb kabobs and she said they were well marinated and quite tasty. Décor is nice. Service was great. The waiter brought extra pita bread and sauces at no charge. Full bar and cocktail area that is very nice. If you are looking for upscale Lebanese food this is certainly worth a try.
