This restaurant has an open concept with a variety of table choices. The tables have tablecloths.

It seems to be a family run business.

We had heard about the mezza plate which is an appetizer sampler. There was a huge confusion with our order. We were under the impression that we could each order our choices of 3 cold and 3 hot appetizers. We got our notes together and gave the order to the waiter. Awhile later the manager came by our table and explained that the chef chooses what the appetizers will be. We agreed to this. However, it would have been nice if our waiter had told us in the beginning.

We ordered some cold beers and we all got waters.

In a reasonable time our orders came and everyone found the food good and interesting.

We found parking on the street but it was a Friday night and it took awhile to find a spot.

The food prices at this restaurant were reasonable.

The service was good but we can only give an average because of the food order confusion.

The place could use some boost in its ambience - like music. Food is average but the lamb shank I am told is really good. My veg stew was a let down. Desserts should be avoided. The baklava was frozen thawed. The rice pudding was also quite lacking in taste. Prices certainly on the higher side.

Had a very good meal in pleasant surroundings at Tannourine. Service was good and the room, though nearly full on a Tuesday night, was conducive to conversation. You can't say that about many restaurants these days!
The food was ample and very tasty.
If you prefer your meat cooked medium or rare, just ask and they do oblige.

A good friend recommended this as a must stop, and wow it was amazing, is small and family run, the cook wanders out and chats with everyone. The food was prefect, my only wish is that I lived closer to this one... very worthy of a stop

I was very impressed by the food at Tannourine. I had the veggie combo which had a mix of cold mezze including falafel, hummous, stuffed vine leaves, cheese and aubergine puree. Everything was very fresh and had great flavours. The warm pitta and cold yogourt accompanying the food was great too.

Service was prompty and friendly, and prices are good. The only disappointment was the Lebanese wine which was served too warm and did not taste very nice.
