A word from Lebanese Taverna - Tysons Galleria
Lebanese Taverna creates an environment where good food is enjoyed in good company. Each restaurant is a "home away from home," even though the food and ambiance are from across the globe. Whether you are visiting for the first time, the twentieth, or have been coming to a Lebanese Taverna for over 29 years, you will feel welcomed and like a member of the family. The atmosphere is bustling and each of the restaurants has its own design and slightly different flavors. That is because the food is made fresh.Continued

  • "Love the feel of the different locations for this restuarant. This is more upscale than the other locaitons in rockville, md. Great food and attentive staff. Will definitely come back."

  • "Here's why you should go to Lebanese Taverna at Tyson's Galleria. 1) Parking is convenient to the restaurant; 2) They have a pleasant out-door dining area; 3) The food is good and the menu is not confusing; 4) They have a great selection of Lebanese wine; 5) It is very kid-friendly and they have a great kids' menu.; 6) Service can be great if you get the right person (unfortunately we didn't on our last visit and hence 2 stars for service)"

  • "The food was good and there are plenty of food and drink options. Service was a little slow but the host and waitress were nice. This is a pricier place, but the food is quality"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "A group of co-workers and I visited for lunch and it was wonderful. The food was tasty and the service was great. The prices are reasonable. There is enough space so the tables aren't close with people bumping into you as you eat. We were able to order and dine within an hour. That was great!"

  • "I really enjoy dinner at Lebanese Taverna. We always have a good time and enjoy the food. As I told the gentleman (manager?) at the host / hostess stand when we were leaving, the waiter that we had was not very attentive and he cost them the profit on another drink. I was going to order (actually I did order) a second drink but it took us so long to get his attention to place the order for the drink that we were finished eating by the time he walked by again (he stopped by to tell us that he placed the drink order). We told him to cancel and just get us the check."

  • "Maybe you can get right in from the parking lot (it's next to Cheesecake Factory), but once you're in the mall it can be v. difficult. The atmosphere and food were great, and our service was wonderful and helpful. I recommend the Lebanese Sampler, 9 dollops of native foods which add up to an adequate lunch with the free bread basket."

  • "My friend and I ate a delicious lunch of samplings. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys aromatic, tender, fragrant meals."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Positives: Nice outdoor patio Yummy hummus appetizer Negatives: Very loud trash truck came to empty the dumpster right during lunch; Not enough veggie chips with hummus appetizer; Lentil soup was somewhat bland; VERY disappointed in the eggplant salad (it's basically JUST smooshed up eggplant, and 1 piece of lettuce); Server seemed indifferent to being there "

  • "Lebanese Taverna is one of my stand by favorites, but that all changed over the weekend with our incredibly rude waitress. It was embarrassing to have brought a friend to this establishment as our beverages were empty for 15+ minutes at a time and other requests took even longer to fill. The waitress only had 2-3 small tables during our visit and she did not adequately service any of us. I asked for additional garlic and each time I asked for it she was incredibly put out and inquired if I wanted to be charged for a full order of it (I've never seen it listed on the menu as a side/extra). No aspect of the service was quick or positive. The waitress was just so rude and neglectful I don't know if I"ll be back."

  • "Lebanese Taverna is one of my go-tos in terms of great and reliable restaurants. I can always count on great food, excellent service and a warm and inviting atmosphere. I bring out of town friends here all of the time - especially those who have never tried Lebanese food. It's one of my top ten!!"

  • "I took my mother here for mothers day, the service was excellent and the food was delicious. Overall had a good experience and the server make good food recommendation. Make sure that you read the check they will add 18% tip to your check without warning which is okay . "

  • "My mother and I went to Lebanese Taverna on Mother's Day. The Mother's Day brunch menu was full of delicious sounding selections. All the mezzas and small plates that we tried were terrific, and the surprisingly large portions for each made it impossible to try all of them. The dessert selection was a bit of a disappointment. We had expected some Lebanese specialties, but it was mostly ordinary (chocolate cake squares, lemon cake with crumble, some kind of cookie dough type thing). I'd like to go back with friends and try eating outside next time, though I'm not sure if the view of the parking lot would be distracting."

  • "love the brunch and the assortment of entrees and desserts. lots to choose from for vegetarians. not all the food ordered came out and had to remind the server a few times about a few of the entrees."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This was our tenth or so time eating at this location and it seems to be continuing a steady decline. Brunch was $140 for 2 adults and 2 kids with only one drink and the food was slow, small and uninspired. Chicken was chewy, tabouleh was not diced fine enough and the overall experience was not great. Save your money. At these prices, you can do much better."

  • "We were in the Tysons Corner region from out of town with our 2 kids who are little "foodies". The food was hot and flavorful, the staff was friendly, and the ambiance inviting. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely return."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Two words: great restaurant! I am a creature of habit and always get the fatteh - half chicken, half eggplant. I am never disappointed. It's comforting to go to a place where your food expectations are always met or exceeded. And the wait staff are eager to please. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "The Lebanese Taverna is a great find on the lower level of Tysons Galleria. The decor and music give an authentic Middle Eastern ambiance, the servers are polite and knowledgable, and the food reasonably priced (especially after seeing the prices in the boutiques!). My drink was "pomenade," which is a blend of lemonade and pomegranate juice, and very refreshing. My entree was a bit on the salty side, but it was properly cooked, warm, and nourishing. They have a great Hummus selection for lunch, and a take-away counter. Overall, I will have to go again soon. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "This restaurant can be noisy and the tables are a bit close together, but this depends on where you are seated. The restaurant has opened its doors to the mall and to the outside, and it seems to quiet things down a bit. We were seated next to the bar and it was nice and quiet. I appreciated that as I go to eat out to talk as well as eat. The service was excellent and the food is always great."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "First time eating here, but I felt like I knew the restaurant, having been a regular at the former "I Street Cafe" (run by daughter of Lebanese Taverna). Was not at all disappointed with the food or the service. Portions are sizeable, and the prices very reasonable. Service was also very fast and the waitress was professional, curteous and eager to please. Ambiance very joyous, a little noisy at times when groups are big, but I didn't find I had to shout over everyone to make myself heard. Great evening, and soon forgot the frustrations associated with trying to find parking at the Galleria!!!!"

  • "I have been to several Lebanese Taverna restaurants. The food is consistently delicious, atmosphere welcoming and calm and the service is exceptional. You feel like you are being welcomed to the family every time. Do not miss the hummus it is the best I have ever tried. I've tried almost everything on the menu over the years and it never disappoints. From vegeterians to meat or fish lovers, everyone can find something they love."

  • "The menu is not nearly as extensive as in the past and many "signature" dishes are missing. The quality of the food has suffered as well. It used to be our "go to" restaurant for special occasions and when guests were visiting. Now it's just another run-of-the-mill Middle Eastern restaurant with high prices. Very disappointing."

  • "Food was so so. I've had better but I think it may be regional Lebanese cuisine differences. I am 100% Lebanese but the food just did not seem the same as what I was raised on. So to that end, I was disappointed. But overall, it was a good dinner."

  • "First time to Lebanese Taverna but it was a perfect experience. I loved walking in and being immediatley seated. The restaurant had a nice ambience despite being inside Tyson's Corner mall. Every I tasted was delicious and I'm anxious to go back. Great dining experience! Loved the chicken Fatteh and would happily order that again. Wonderful combination of flavors!"

  • "We normally love Lebanese Taverna and go there frequently, however, their Valentine's Day preset menu was disappointing. The service was terrible and the preset menu items were not good at all. It was very expensive and we left disappointed. I will never go there for a special event again. I"
