  • Horrible service and food okay

    Dined on 1/11/2014
    The ambience and atmosphere is amazing! The sever was speaking in your face so close you could see her tonsils. We have a party of six and three of our meals were wrong and had to be sent back for correct food we ordered. Tables were not cleaned regularly which caused glasses and plates to pile up. I would not go back because of the rudeness and errors

    The waitress kept asking to remove our plates before we were done! Not sure why they had an attitude of rushing service even though half the tables were empty! The ambience is lovely and so e of the food items were great (hummus).

    The Lebanese Taverna is a wonderful restaurant. The entire staff is comprised of energetic server's who go out of their way to ensure the guess are taken care of and enjoy their dining experience. The food selection has enough variety to satisfy a large range of people and the meals are well priced. I would recommend this establishment for couples, families and small groups.

    My wife and I went for the brunch on a Saturday morning, and got there before they opened up, so when they did, we were naturally the first. About 10 minutes into our stay there and lots and lots and lots of people started showing up from some conference that was going on around the neighborhood. Anyway, the service did slow down but VERY slightly, and yet the limited number of servers tried to keep up with almost everyone that was in the restaurant. Would have loved to spend New Years Eve here but found out too late that they were sold out for the late sitting. I would avoid ordering the potatoes for brunch as that's just floating on a layer of oil. But the Shakshouka is amazing, as are the roasted olives and the Warm Awamat (donuts).

    The place is very nice, the people friendly even though a little busy in their running around. The food is OK. However, given the lack of good places in Baltimore, I would say it is one of the few places where you can have a decent meal when in town.

    This is a charming, physically beautiful restaurant on the edge of Fells Point in Baltimore, in a new and "trendy" neighborhood on the edge of downtown. The restaurant is large and can easily handle large groups. We were only six, but they were very attentive from the moment we got there, advising us well on the menu items and making sure everyone was happy. The wine list is not extensive but it is interesting, with a number of Lebanese wines included. And the prices are quite reasonable. All in all, a pleasant and satisfying place. Perhaps not for the highly sophisticated foodies, but great for the rest of us.

    I felt like everything deserved a solid "good": meets or slightly above average and no big problems. The food was on the very good side. My companion and I had the "chef's platter" appetizer and a lamb dish (splitting both...). The lamb was succulent and well seasoned. On the appetizer sampler, I particularly liked the baba ganoush (could be bought separately on the menu) and the tabouleh (only w sampler). The service was friendly but a little inattentive and slow.

    We really enjoyed our meal here. We shared 5 appetizers (amongst 4 people!) - Sausages, kibbeh, beet and watermelon salads. The fried smelt was the least enjoyable. We had Sea Bass, Shrimp Arak and Lamb Shank for entrees. Only complaint was that my husband doesn't eat starch, and the server said it was impossible to switch out the starch for vegetables. Why not? After seeing the dish, it would have been possible. Other than that, dessert, coffee and the wines were fine.

    I had taken my friend to one of the Lebanese Taverna restaurants when she was in DC a few years ago, and she liked it so much that she wanted her husband to try it on a recent trip to Baltimore. We had a terrific lunch--we especially enjoyed the mezze sampler. Our waitress was wonderful, explaining the foods, including the differences between the Lebanese and Israeli preparations. She even brought us a sample of the spicy rice that was not in the sampler. The ambience was comfortable and relaxing, perfect for a rainy afternoon in Baltimore. Would definitely go back!
